This was the first dress shop I came to try on dresses and I haven't purchase my dress yet (short on funds) but this location is definitely looking like the place I'll most likely purchase from. They have a variety of dresses to choose from to fit every style and budget. The costumer service was fantastic, I didn't feel pressured or pushed and she gave her honest opinions. They have very convenient appointment times. I am on a tight budget so I wasn't really going with a large retailer i was going to opt for small bridal boutiques, but I will definitely recommend this location has the large retailer options with small personalized boutique feel.
My bridesmaids did buy their dresses from here. I went in with them to try on a couple and the woman who helped us was fantastic, she ran back and forth to get sizes, gave helpful suggestions and we didn't feel rushed or anything.

I was not at all expecting to buy a dress from David's Bridal during my first time out looking for a dress, but the stars aligned, and I ended up buying a dress from this store (Norwood, not Dedham), and I love it! A friend of mine who is also getting married made an appointment at 11am on a weekday, so I made one for the same time. There were a few other customers in the store, but we had plenty of room to walk around and plenty of time to try on several dresses. My consultant was Rose, and she was very sweet and down to earth. I did not feel pressured at all! My friend's consultant was also very nice and helpful, but I didn't catch her name. I had favorited a few dresses from the website, and they had a printout of my dresses waiting for me. Unfortunately one of my favorites was not in the store, but I picked out a few others from the book that they provided. The second dress I tried on, which my mom found on the DB website, was nearly perfect, but there was one odd part in the waist where the fabric changed. Rose found the perfect belt to put over it, which completely eliminated the problem, and the second time I put the dress on, I knew it was the one. The belt is $129, which is kind of steep, but it looked perfect with the dress. My mom kept saying that I looked like a beautiful princess, and she is NEVER like that. I walked over to my friend and her sister and mom, and they all said, "Ooooooooh!" The actual dress I tried on was my size and the sample was in perfect condition and marked down from $1150 to $450, so I bought it and walked out with it! It is going to have to be hemmed, the belt sewn on, and get a bustle put in, but I'll deal with that later with a local tailor as I have not heard good things about DB alteration services. So, the dress was $450 and then I bought the belt, a slip for $60, and a garment bag for $10, so it came out to about $650, which I thought was reasonable for a gorgeous, intricate dress.

I used David's Bridal in Westwood, MA, for my bridal alterations, though my gown was purchased in their Natick, MA, location. They did a fabulous job altering my wedding gown to fit and taking care of me after I cried over buttons! When I visited after the alterations were complete, I had cried at the sight of my bustle. At my previous visit, the seamstress had pinned the bustle up beautifully and I had loved the way the dress transitioned seamlessly from the lacy bodice to the tulle in the back. When I saw the completed bustle alterations, I cried at the sight of 15 large buttons across the lower back of my dress and 15 yarn-like loops sewn into the tulle. I was never shown what was to be used for the bustle and hadn't envisioned the pins becoming 15 large buttons. They were so distracting, and in my opinion, ruined that beautiful transition from the lacy bodice to the tulle. Plus, the bustle loops looked as though someone's sewing scraps had gotten caught up in the tulle of my dress. I held in how I felt for a few minutes because I didn't want to be an unreasonable bride. I understood that SOMETHING had to be there to hold the fabric. After I couldn't hold it in any longer and began crying, the seamstress explained that she can replace the buttons with white bra hooks, blended into the lace of my dress. This solution was PERFECT and gave me back that seamless transition at the back of my dress. Unfortunately, the bra hooks never held on the day of my wedding. The tulle ended up having several holes in it by the end of the night. I'll NEVER admit that those 15 BUTTONS would have held the bustle better, but I'm so happy I have a few pictures with my dress looking just how I wanted it in the back!

I didn't expect to find my dress here, but it was the first one I tried on! Tiffany was wonderful, and encouraged me to try on several very different dresses to make sure the first dress was the one. She was also professional yet warm and had me laughing as I got in and out of all these dresses. The store itself is pretty new and very spacious, and they have a large selection of dresses under $1,000.

I had a great experience at this Westwood shop. I had initially bought a dress from a small shop in Norwood, MA that was closing (the two women owners retired). After working with a tailor for six months on that dress, I just didn't like the final product. I showed up at this Westwood David's Bridal two weeks before my wedding. The staff was very understanding, helpful, and courteous. I found a dress that I loved and was able to get it tailored. I was so appreciative of how kind and helpful they were - especially since I was so stressed out about trying to find a dress only two weeks before. Really great experience. I would recommend.

I came to this David's Bridal after having bought my gown at a different store, in hopes of finding a short reception dress as I have a very bad back (have had multiple surgeries) and am worried about having pain during the reception from a full gown. As soon as they realized that I wanted a short dress, the consultant's attitude took a complete turn, and she essentially ignored me for the rest of the appointment. I was very disappointed, and although I found a dress, it was no thanks to this consultant. I had a very positive experience buying my gown elsewhere, and feel sorry that other women may only have a negative experience purchasing their dresses here.

The price just couldn't be beat for what we got! The invitations were on close-out and they still honored a 20% off coupon I recieved from when I purchased my dress. They were very helpful when it came to precision as they called me to verify some questionable input from the online form. The only drawback was that the style we picked did not have an outer envelope and the envelopes were thin for the invite size.

This is now the westwood location. Wow. What snobs! My mom initially picked a dress that wasn't right for her at a different location. So we went to this location for a new dress. Two female employees were chatting and not paying any attention to my mom while she tried dresses on. I had to go and find different dresses/sizes for her. Then (in the wall to wall mirrors) I could see then making faces. These are 40+ year old women. The first woman said my mom's dress would be in 9/11. So did the second lady after looking in the computer. The email we get says 2 days before my wedding. Really?! We called and they said it was the latest it would come but it'll probably come earlier. Doesn't sound like the safest bet when planning a big wedding. It came in and my mom made an alteration appointment. Well, tried to after multiple time stating that 2 days AFTER my wedding wasn't a good date... The earliest they could have it finished was 3 days before my wedding. I wouldn't have trusted them to do the alterations, but she is much more trusting than I. They came out ok. The dress didn't sit right at the hips, but it wasn't super noticeable when she was on the dance floor or wearing her long pashmina.
Choose a different location (or not David's at all- cheap material!).

I went to David's bridal in Westwood, MA because I am plus size, I thought they would have more selection. I booked my appointment and selected about 20 favorites online. These favorites are what they pull from.

I showed up for my appointment assuming they would have pulled stuff already but they didn't. So then I sat and waited (the chairs are uncomfortable and this takes a while) so the attendant could search for my styles. She came back with NONE of them. She said none of them were in stock so she pulled similar styles. Except that they weren't similar at all. I had a lot of A-Line, Empire styles and she pulled a lot of trumpet styles - exactly the opposite of what I wanted. It ended up being that she was new, which is fine, but she was also my polar opposite so it was hard for her to understand I wanted a low key casual dress that wasn't form fitting. Finally a manager came over who was more similar in body type to me and she pulled a few options that were closer to what I was looking for.

In the end, they didn't have my dream dress and I settled for something else - a selection from the manager. I went to my first fitting and because they made a few changes (corset back and sweetheart neckline) they told me I had to come back for a second fitting. I live an hour and a half away and this was the closest David's so I said ok. I came back for the second fitting which was three weeks before my fitting and they told me they didn't have enough time to make the rest of the changes. I'm pretty upset about that but I have to say they did a beautiful job in alterations with the corset back and sweetheart neckline. It totally changed the dress and I'm much happier.

They also called me about a hundred times for appointments I "booked" that I never booked or had originally booked and canceled to make others. They are very disorganized and it left me feeling extremely worried about the safety of my dress and reliability of getting it done.

It's not surprising to read the poor reviews in this section for this David's Bridal. Let me begin by saying I always liked the Dedham location. 5 years ago we needed a 2 week rush ship on bridesmaid dresses for my best friends wedding and they made it happen and treated us incredibly well. I am here to say in my 3 visits recently to the new Westwood Location of this store, apparently all of their good employees left the company.

I cannot even begin to describe how I felt during my visit. Let's begin by saying they made multiple errors with my appointment when I arrived, didn't know why I was there, had the wrong "favorites" from the website picked out for me. I waited around for about 25 min after my appointment start time before anyone even started helping me, after they told me to chose from anything in the bridal section informed me that as I was looking above a size 14 it was really only one small section they could accommodate me in. All the dresses I loved tgat I spent time choosing they had to find me other options for in plus size. It was very frustrating. The attendant was not only rude on all 3 of my recent visits (3 different women), they didn't care at all about me spend any time during this 1.5 hour appointment with me, and clearly had better things to do. My most recent appointment the store was basically empty and they crowded me next to another bride in one cramped section when the whole store was wide open. It was such an aweful experience and to boot she wanted a sale so bad that she had the nerve to ask for it and tell me I needed to do it then. I have never felt less like a bride in my life, and my maids when I brought them were so disappointed in the service and treatment. I have given them so many chances, but sadly, can't anymore.
