I went into the store without an appointment just to look around not knowing what I wanted. The ladies in the store were so helpful and patient with me. They helped me pick out about 5 different styles and then I tried on probably 30 dresses. I was so pleased with the service I received at this store.
When I returned for my brides maids dresses, i requested the same lady as before. She was just as helpful and provided such good service! I am definitely going back for my flower girl dress!

I want to thank Davids Bridal in Colma specifically for making a bride not turn into a Bridezilla. the manager there, Susana, is THE BEST! she is accommodating and makes the stressful process of planning the dress and attire portion of the wedding so not stressful. I had my sister exchange her dress and she had to go to Roseville location and they were not accommodating at all. The dress had tags and they didnt want to exchange her dress. I did a few exchanges at the Colma location and my dresses had their tags and I could exchange anything without being harrassed. I strongly recommend this location specifically . Great value, excellent manager, friendly service, and always on time. Thanks Davids Bridal. I'm a customer for life!

What's to say. It's DB, it's a bridal superstore chain. You can't expect the personalized service of a boutique, and if you go in knowing that, you'll do fine. I had good service at this location, crappy service in Colorado and even crappier in Sacramento. I went with my bridesmaid to pick out a dress after my first one got destroyed. I was in the mood to just go in and grab one. My bridesmaid convinced me to try on a few until I found one that gave me the wow feeling, which I did. They do have some beautiful gowns there, it's just that you have to bring someone with you who will make the experience for you, not expect them to do anything but try to sell you a dress with all the fixin's.

My mother and I went to find a veil and instead I got a beautiful dress, veil and shoes. I was able to find a veil that matched the dress like they were made for each other. Once I picked my dress I got to ring the bell and make a wish. I was very happy with my choice and we had a great experience with the bridesmaid dresses and flower girls as well!

I found my beautiful dress on the very first visit. Lorene listened to what I wanted in terms of style and price and made sure to also pull my favorites from online. The dress was on sale and there was a markdown for buying the veil at the same time, so I was satisfied with the value.

The alterations were well done and the whole process was smooth, pleasant and stress free.

Based on my favorites picked she also brought out several other similar dresses (all within my budget) that were great to see against my picks to make the final decision.

My experience at davids bridal was wonderful. I chose my dress after my specialist brought it to me as her recommendation - it was perfect. My alterations were very wonderful as well. I did not like a couple of the bustles and she changed it to one that is rarely used and it was perfect. She said i was the first to use this type of bustle on my specific dress. I truly love my dress and had a great experience through this company!

I originally ordered my dress at a David's Bridal in Austin, TX, although my wedding was in California. The service in Austin was great, however the only way I could get my dress to CA was to pack it in a suitcase. In Austin I was told that I could get a free touch up if I brought the dress to David's Bridal in Colma. When I got there, they charged me $50 to steam it. To make matters worse, when my maid of honor went to pick it up, she had horrible service. She was basically ignored despite her requests for help, until she walked into the back of the alterations department and demanded service.

The wedding dress I bought from this store was fabulous! Everyone complemented it & told me I look like a princess. I was able to find a steal of a dress. Which is $500 less from the original price. This was the first store I shop around & came back again because I can't take my mind out of the first dress I tried on. I went there during their sale & I got a coupon discount. I read some bad reviews with their alteration so I decided to go somewhere else for half the price they have. All of my bridesmaids also bought their dress here & got $20 discount! One thing for sure I learned from this store is to visit them on weekdays morning, it's less crowd.

One of the most important decisions a bride makes about her wedding is her dress. How she feels about this purchase seems to vary from person to person, but in my case it was purely overwhelming. My family and I had gone to a wedding expo and received an offer for a discount on a dress at David's Bridal, so after I had recovered from the expo I made an appointment to look at dresses. My mother and I had been looking at magazines and sizing up the styles we liked, but in reality? I had zero idea about what I wanted in a wedding dress.

I had no intention of buying a dress at my fitting. However, when our consultation adviser brought out the dress I would later wear at my wedding, there was something about the lace and the pearls that felt right. I put it on and came out of the dressing room and stood in front of the mirror. It was then that my mother cautiously asked how much it was. When the adviser smiled slyly we were both terrified. However, she shocked us both when she quoted a price that was roughly $300 below our budget! It turned out that it was the last dress of the style and it simply happened to be in my size. As I stood, looking at the dress from all angles, a young girl came up to me and said “You look like a fairy princess!” It shouldn't be a surprised that I was sold.

I was further impressed by David's Bridal when I came in with my reluctant bridesmaid's a month before the wedding and explained that they'd been hesitant in picking dresses to the point of mouth frothing frustration and we needed dresses that we could leave the store with that night (since they'd waited past the point that we could have things ordered or altered.) Thanks to the knowledge of our adviser and a lot of luck and patience, we were able to get them both into dresses that they loved and looked lovely in for a lot less than they expected to pay. We even managed to coordinate with another wedding that one of my ladies was going to be in, so she only had to buy one dress for both events!

But, above all of this, my strongest recommendation goes to the alteration department. As I mentioned above, the dress had a detailed lace layer and the folks here managed to carefully lift and reapply each of the lace appliques so that the dress could be hemmed. David's Bridal has gotten a difficult wrap in the wedding scene. No, they aren't boutique or unique, but sometimes they are exactly what you need. Their dresses come in a variety of sizes and heights and their alterations are amazing. And, if you're a bride on a budget they will stick to the budget you give them and not try to sell you on things you can't afford. I did have some problems with coordinating my wedding information – they couldn't find me in my system once, despite the fact that they were at that time altering my dress (kind of scary!) But in the long run they always came through and I had no complaints outside of that.

I loved the dress I chose, and the lady helping me was very patient and kept the store open until I had decided, with no pressure. My only warning is to watch out for hidden costs during alterations. In my fitting, I was shown different ways the train could be bustled, and didn't realize that every single tie that would be sewn in cost $7 - I ended up with almost $400 in bustle-costs... If you are budget-conscious, make sure to ask what every little thing costs, they won't volunteer the info until you're presented with the bill... :) To be fair, the final result looked gorgeous!

I wonder if service has improved there lately, because my experience there was great. In fact, I had horrible service at other bridal boutiques (unattentive staff yet sales pressure) and was feeling discouraged until I went to David's Bridal. I had the friendliest lady, Angela, help me. She gave me a catalogue to pick out dresses I liked and brought them all to me to try. She was patient, gave helpful feedback, was enthusiastic and made me feel like a bride. I ended up loving 2 or 3 dresses there whereas I had found not a single one I liked at 3 other stores I visited previously. Angela even allowed me to try on my two favorite dresses a couple times when I had difficulty making a final decison. To top it off, the materials/fabric were better quality than I expected from David's Bridal while the price was just right. At first glance, David's doesn't have the chic, luxurious feel of the independent boutiques, but once I met the staff, it felt golden, especially compared the other places I went. The alterations department was a different story. I initially gave them a positive review when I got my dress back, but after I wore it at the wedding, I realized how poorly done the alterations were. The workmanship was pretty poor. I had a simple hemline but the sewing looked like it was done by a 3rd grader, and the dress was still a little long. I was a little worried about that at my fitting but they assured me it was because I was bending over to look down, and it was the right length if I walked straight. However, I tore the netting (thank goodness it was just a layer underneath) at the beginning of my wedding day walking to the car, NOT looking down! Then, the bustles were a joke. They were not done nearly well enough to hold up the weight of the train, and a couple of them tore through the layers of the dress by the end of the day! I don't think it was really noticeable (at least I didn't notice and it doesn't show in the pictures) but it was annoying to find my dress damaged afterwards. So if this were just for the alterations department, I would give them a 1, and I would not recommend them at all. But the sales service was so excellent that I would send other people there, so they still get 4 stars for that.

I have heard a lot of horror stories about the davids bridal here in Bakersfield but I actually had a very positive experience. I ended up buying the first dress I tried on. I had found it on their web site and fell in love with it. The lady that helped me was named Megan and she was very helpful. Something to keep in mind also is that they don't carry many different styles in all the sizes, so if you want to be picky I recommend going several months before your wedding so they can order things for you to try. Also, I recommend buying your outfit accessories elsewhere. My dress was on sale for only $350 but after minor alterations, a veil with 3 blushers, my tummy control garment, shoes, tiara, and that big poofy thing that goes under your dress skirt to make it fall right it came out to a little over $1000.00! When I looked at the tag on the tiara it was $100! I guess thats ok if you really need Swarovski crystals but I decided to go with a rhinestone tiara and jewelry from Icing in the mall instead lol. The tiara was just as pretty and I mean how many times are you really gonna wear it?

I have mixed feelings about the David's here in Colma. On the one hand, the sales staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. She was honest when a dress wasn't me instead of trying to convince me to buy every dress I tried on. I got a dress on sale that my Maid of Honor spotted, and the nice sales lady never tried to make us get a more expensive one, despite pressuring us to walk out with it that day, claiming that it could be discontinued any day. The style that I picked up is still available an entire year after my purchase, by the way.

On the other, the alterations were HORRIBLE, and they charged me $300 for the privilege of making an awkward bustle that tore at one of the bustle points on the day of the wedding, adding straps that were at first twisted and then uneven (they had to be safety-pinned in the back on the day of the wedding, and one of the straps kept falling down), hemming it, and taking it in a little.

Although everyone said I looked beautiful on my wedding day, the cheapness of the dress fabric dress ensured that it did not survive an evening of dancing.

I have mixed feelings about the David's here in Colma. On the one hand, the sales staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. She was honest when a dress wasn't me instead of trying to convince me to buy every dress I tried on. I got a dress on sale that my Maid of Honor spotted, and the nice sales lady never tried to make us get a more expensive one, despite pressuring us to walk out with it that day, claiming that it could be discontinued any day. The style that I picked up is still available an entire year after my purchase, by the way.

On the other, the alterations were HORRIBLE, and they charged me $300 for the privilege of making an awkward bustle that tore at one of the bustle points on the day of the wedding, adding straps that were at first twisted and then uneven (they had to be safety-pinned in the back on the day of the wedding, and one of the straps kept falling down), hemming it, and taking it in a little.

Although everyone said I looked beautiful on my wedding day, the cheapness of the dress fabric dress ensured that it did not survive an evening of dancing. Its tattered remains are hanging in my closet right now. If I had thought things through, I would not have purchased this dress, but gotten a simple destination wedding dress from a reputable designer. Read less

I absolutely loved my dress that I got from David's Bridal, but we did have a few problems along the way. When I tried on dresses they seemed overbooked with clients, and the lady helping us seemed a little more flustered that I wanted to try on more dresses to make sure the one I wanted was "the one". Then when the dress first came in, there were a bunch of the beading that was either falling apart or missing. They did however fix that in a timely manner. The seamstress was great! She did an awesome job on the alterations and the bustle. Can't beat less than $1000 for the dress, veil, and undergarments. Overall I would recommend.

The service was horrible. Both times I was there, I practically dressed myself and my 5 bridesmaid. I spent most of my time looking for the consultant. At the end I got fed up and looked through the racks myself looking for dresses. The only reason why there is one star is because the dresses are nice and the prices are reasonable. Also, I would not recommend scheduling an appointment on the weekend, since those are the days most brides have time for a fitting.

David's Bridal--you get what you pay for in terms of service. You only get to try on a limited number of dresses and they don't cater to you that well. But you can get a great deal on a dress and the tailor did actually make my dress fit perfectly.

I wore a red wedding dress. I had to order a red ballgown from David's because they didn't carry a red one in the style I liked. It was exactly the same as a more expensive "wedding" gown. The gown was beautiful and the fit was perfect.

I had a right place/ right time experience with them. They weren't busy so they were able to accommodate me right away without an appointment. The salespersons was wonderful and I felt she was truly excited for me. She helped me find a steal of a dress ($200). The women who did my alteration was just as fabulous. She made sure my bustle was perfect, beautiful and functional.

I was a last minute bride and went to David's Bridal first to look for a wedding dress and even though I had an appointment, the sales assistant spent more time helping another bride who's wedding was over a year away. Dresses are cheap, but ultimately I didn't buy my gown from here. However, I did find bridesmaid dresses here and they were helpful in sizing the dresses for my bridesmaids as they were in the UK. There was a problem with the junior bridesmaid dress which had to be ordered and when it arrived it had the security tag left in it from a different store. They had to have their seamstress cut it out and repair the lining of the dress as they couldn't remove it the usual way.

Now, some might say that to shop for your wedding dress at a chain like David's Bridal is some sort of heresy -- after all, is one not supposed to spend thousands of dollars on a custom-designed gown for that special day? I say absolutely not. I wanted a dress that looked great for that day and the pictures, not something that cost me so much I had to frame it and hang it on my wall just to justify the expense. David's has a great selection of styles and size. I went in wanting something much different than what I ultimately purchased, but this was thanks to three hours with a very helpful salesperson who gave me honest feedback and lots of options. (Her feedback was especially helpful since I went in alone!) The salesperson even helped me take photos of myself in the dress so I could send them to my mom, who lives out of state.

I was also pleased that David's offered in-house alterations and managed to find all of my accessories there as well, including a mantilla veil on clearance. No one pressured me to spend more money, and my bridal wear shopping was complete in 3.5 hours. The only snag I encountered was when I went for my alteration appointment: my shoes were supposed to be dyed in time for the appointment, but they hadn't yet arrived. No matter; they pulled another pair of the shoes out for me in no time and the measurements were made.

Note: my experience with them was ONLY regarding pressing. They required several weeks of lead time to just press, which in my opinion is ridiculous, especially considering that the place I ended up taking it to took less than a week for both my dress and the flower girl.

The process of getting my dress was quick and easy. Plus, there was an unexpected extra discount at the cashier! That confirmed that "THAT was THE dress!". As for my bridesmaids - they had an awful experience! The consultant had a very bizarre sense of style, she ordered the final dresses wrongly, which messed up the timing of our order. I had to call every few days to confirm they understood what was happening. This isn't something a bride needs to be concerned about - they should have done their job properly. They didn't offer us a discount to fix things or to compensate the lack of communication. Then, even when they made the mistake, we had to deal with their tailors, who were rude. They were so bad that my maid-of-honor who got married about a year after us refused to go back to them because of their rudeness and lack of professionalism.

While my dress was extremely well-priced, I couldn't have it altered at this location because even the waiting list was months long... It was necessary for me to pay almost twice what I paid for the dress to have it altered by another bridal shop. The sales people were extremely helpful in choosing the style, etc and really had a good eye for which styles worked best with my body type -- I'd recommend it for shopping but not necessarily for buying your dress!

I love David's Bridal because they actually have such a HUGE array of styles of Brides' gowns and you don't have to set up an appointment if you go there on the weekday.
Judy at the Colma, CA store was the first lady that helped me and basically I did find my dress on that visit. Everyone else that helped me after that first visit still was very helpful.
Overall I LOVE David's Bridal because it's not crazy expensive (as other wedding dress boutiques) and it's very convenient.
One comment: I didn't know anything about bustles until after I had mine done. Make sure you research what bustle you want before having (their) tailor do it for you. I spent way too much money on their bustle tailoring service because the tailor didn't give me any advice or information on bustles. I just accepted what he gave me, which I realized afterward, I didn't like. I could've saved some money if I did my research on bustles beforehand.

SERVICE: This store is a hit or miss. My first visit was ok. The first lady that helped me was great, until she got busy with everybody else. If you walk in there without an appointment, they will most likely ignore you even if your sparkly engagement ring is right in front of their faces.
QUALITY and PRICE: If it's not Vera Wang or Oleg Cassini, look elsewhere. The quality is just so so and the price is NOT worth it.
