Honestly, I've never been "traditional," and never imagined fining my dream dress at DB. I had a vision of a $10,000 artsy gown by a French designer in my head that I knew I would never own. I searched high and low for any gown that was similar, including boutiques, department stores, prom dress shops- you name it. One day, I gave in and did some on-line browsing of the DB site. I actually found a similar style to the dress I had been dreaming of for less than $200! I ordered it one size bigger than what I normally wear, and when it arrived it fit almost perfectly. I took it to the DB store on 25th Street and 6th Ave in Manhattan and had the tailors there hem it for me and add a bustle for another $90. It is a very busy store, but everyone was friendly and professional. I had to have have it hemmed again after my first fitting for no additional charge, and I walked away one happy bride. Bottom line is don't dismiss DB as being cookie cutter: they offer a huge selection of dresses in a wide price range. Hey, you never know.

I had my reservations about going to David's Bridal after seeing their reviews on Yelp, but living in NYC and finding an affordable wedding dress that wouldn't break the bank was not easy, so I decided to go here. I first worked with Terra, who was really good at what she did. She was easy-going, relaxed, and really attentive. The second time I went to try on dresses with my mom, the sales associate was also really good and we finally ordered the dress. Here is where the trouble started. When my dress came in, it was a size 16 instead of a 10. They actually asked me to try it on anyway and I decided to humor them. I was swimming in the dress. Once I went to take off the dress, the sales associate was nowhere to be found, so I left it in the room because I wasn't told what to do with it. I then went up to the front counter, and wasn't told what was going on, and after 20 minutes of waiting like an idiot, they had reordered the dress and rushed it.

The alteration process went well, but on my wedding day, the bustle which cost so much had broken in two places. There were also issues with one of my bridesmaid's dresses when she got it altered at DB, where when they handed it back to her she was told that they messed up the zipper (aren't you supposed to fix that since, I don't know, you're the seamstress?). All in all, I do not recommend DB, as they can not appropriately conduct business and mess up a lot. Not fun.

First off let me start by saying, I had an Awesome Consultant at the NYC location on 26 street when I went shopping for my dress . She was polite, professional and lots of fun. I walked in and showed her a picture of what I wanted and she bought me a dress that looked exactly like the picture. She showed me three more dresses similar to the pic but she saved the best one for last. When I put it on, I knew it was my dress and so did everyone else in the store. Thanks Yelisse, Keep up the good work

First of all, while I did originally shop at David's Bridal in New York City, I also bought some things at other stores across the country due to my destination wedding. This review is more for David's Bridal as a whole than specifically for the NYC location.
I had kind of promised myself not to buy my wedding dress at David's Bridal b/c I had some preconceptions about what DB would be like. I am so glad I decided to give it a shot. I found a dress I loved (and that other people gave me endless compliments on) for a third of what a similar dress would have cost me elsewhere. My wedding dress was beautiful, well-made, and unique. Furthermore, buying a dress through DB opened up discounts and rewards to many other services, not limited to but including Men's Wearhouse, Premium Blooms flowers, discounts on bridesmaids dresses, etc. I decided to buy all my bridesmaids, jr. bridesmaids, and flower girl dresses from DB as well, and I love what I found. You kind of have to keep an eye out for the style you like as many of the styles change frequently throughout the year.
Service-wise, my experience really varied. There were some consultants who made me feel incredibly special and excited, not only for my big day, but for my DB experience as well. And yet, other staff members seemed relatively unprofessional and/or were too busy to give me the level of attention/care required for a great experience. The NYC tends to be very busy, so make an appointment! The other reason for my lowered score on "professionalism" is that several of my bridesmaids ordered dresses under my account name (although they payed for themselves and gave their info.) I got several calls telling me "my" dress was ready to be picked up in so and so state. I felt they should have called the bridesmaid directly. They also did not automatically ship things as told to so and had to be reminded. Other than that, I am very pleased with my DB experience, and I would (and already have) recommend!

I got my dress at David's Bridal in NYC. I've been to two. The one in Kansas City was very attentive and professional and I'm sorry I wasn't in town to do business with them. This review is for the New York store. The store on 6th Ave in NYC has a lot to be desired. I've always had to wait 20 minutes or more for a pre-scheduled appointment. The attendants seemed overbooked and too busy to be of much help.

I ended up trying on and buying a dress I found myself in the catalog. All that being said, David's bridal is very affordable compared to all the other dress shopping I did. Since they're a national chain, they usually have the dress in stock. Other stores promise it to you in 5-8 months. I had my dress in a week. It was beautiful and high quality and came in my size, so there were no alterations. They also honored an online only promo code I'd been e-mailed that day, so the dress was even cheaper than anticipated.

The other downside to shopping at David's Bridal is that they sell your info. I was getting bombarded with e-mails and phone calls from different vendors, most of which were not even in the same state.

My dress was a Vera Wang. I Love my dress. Two problems: one is they cost for alteration was outrageous. If I had to do this again, I will not have them do the alteration. the second is that the girls at the front desks are very unprofessional and just plain RUDE!

Purchasing the dress at David's Bridal was a good experience. Our salesperson was professional and helpful. She focused just on the bride and what she wanted. We found the dress and all of us rang the bell and cried with joy.

But be careful, if you need to buy a bra, buy it well in advance. They didn't tell us that. Alterations are expensive and they are not very flexible on dates. Talk to the manager of the store or the head of alterations.

At the checkout counter, there were many brides in tears, complaining about the dress and how it fit or the alterations and the cost. Buy what you want, ask about alterations and you will be fine.

If you are a smart buyer, you will be a happy bride.

I received the White by Vera Wang bridesmaid's dress that I ordered in the mail yesterday. While I was thrilled that my order arrived sooner than estimated, I was horrified when I saw how the dress had actually been packaged. The full length gown had basically been rolled around a hanger and placed in a plastic USPS bag. When I opened the package, the dress was more wrinkled than any garment I've ever seen in my life. The (normally) structured corset had been completely misshapen and the dress looks totally worn out While I understand that this is not couture, it is a BRIDESMAIDS GOWN from DAVID'S BRIDAL, i.e. it is going to be worn in a WEDDING. Not to mention that when I spend $200 of my hard-earned money, I expect those who are taking my money to treat my property with respect. David's Bridal can't use a box?? I've ordered underwear that has come more carefully packaged than this gown. I take care and consideration to make sure my garments are lightly worn and well taken care of, but this dress was already put through distress just on its way getting to me. The dress looks like it's already been worn multiple times; the pleats in the corset are overlapped by wrinkles and the sash isn't even flat anymore -- they can't fold the belt separately instead of bunching it into the dress?? This was done so carelessly that it sent me a clear message David's Bridal does not really care about the customer satisfaction or high quality standards. VERY disappointing!

My consultant was very helpful. She suggested a dress that I would have never picked myself and it was the one. However, I do not like the fact that I was given my dress to take home in a plastic bag, when someone could have let me know that garment bags were available for purchase. Had a good experience overall.
