have to say I was extremely disappointed when I got there. I had made an appointment, and was shoved in a corner changing area with barely any room, which then was only provided with 2 chairs even though I told them there was 4 of us coming. the lady assisting me was not helpful whatsoever, and continued to bring me the complete opposite style of dresses I asked for. she was rude, unprofessional, acted like we were a bother to her, and basically only showed me dresses that were expensive. we ended up finding a decent dress ourselves in the clearance rack... which is the only good thing I can say about the place... mine was a great deal! don't go there if u want a comforting boutique experience.. good for cheaper dresses only.

I loved my day at David's Bridal in Schaumburg!! I found THE ONE, and Jacklyn made it the greatest experience for me and my family. I could not have asked for a better consultant while dress shopping. I know I was very picky and not the best at expressing my wishes but Jacklyn made it work and we found the dress! Love her and I look forward to working with the DB team for the rest of the process.

Purchased my dress from DB in Schaumburg and it arrived late which was stressful, but the district manager and the management staff at DB were fantastic and helpful. The alterations manager, Sitora, was unbelievable in what she did for my dress -- she is a true magician and an artist. The price was high but worth it and Sitora is an asset to that store. I felt like I was in good hands from day one and her confidence in what could be done was calming. She's amazing. I highly recommend this store and love DB now. My experience wasn't perfect but they made it perfect and came through in the end. Very fair. I didn't have high expectations but they did exceed. Thank you to the entire management team, the district manager and especially Sitora. Rock stars! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I got my dress from David's Bridal and was not only thrilled with the price but the service was great. My consultant took the time to help me find dresses and encouraged me to try on ones that I didn't even think I would like. She made my overall experience really fun. It was so exciting to find my dress at an affordable price.

Purchased wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses. I had my wedding dress altered at David's bridal as well. My dress was gorgeous with a medium lenght train and pickups. The bridesmaids dresses were similar style and complimented the wedding gown well. I got my dress online on sale for half price; however, the alterations cost almost as much as the dress ($350). I believe it was still worth going to David's bridal for the alterations because the dress was very complicated with all the lace beading at the bottom and all the pickups which needed to be accounted for while creating the 22 bussles. The women who altered my dress (Hannah) did a fantastic job and was very helpful.

To find your perfect bridal gown David's Bridal is a must to find it! My dress representative was informative, friendly, helpful, and helped me find my perfect dress.

For bridesmaid shopping would NOT recommend at all. I made an appointment, we showed up a few minutes early and it took over a half hour for a representative to meet us and then told us to simply find something on our own. The dressing room was a mess and once dresses were found in their sizes we found out that two of my bridesmaid dresses did not come in the correct color at the CHECK OUT LINE!! Worst experience of my wedding planning.

Maybe I was lucky but I got my dress from Davis Bridal on the second day of fitting. The staff was very helpful and even though their schedule was full they were able to help me and did not ignore me. My time had ran out the first day but the girl still kept offering me dresses and trying to help us out.

Honestly - while shopping for my dress and the dresses for my adult bridesmaid's was fine - the shopping for my jr. bridesmaid dress and shoes was a nightmare. The girl that helped us was an airhead, didn't know what she was doing - and annoyed the heck out of ALL of us!

Then, when I came back to pick up the jr. bridesmaid dress - the shoes weren't ready, and they told me to come in a few days - so I did - only to find out that they wouldn't be ready for another MONTH!!!

Not to mention the online shipping prices are INSANE! Luckily when I complained, I got a refund for some of the inflated charges - I would have bought more from them had I not had such a bad experience with that.

I was so happy to finally end my relationship with David's Bridal...!!!

I recently bought my dress here & LOVED IT. The girl, believe her name was Adrianna who would dress & undress me, made me feel comfortable & was very helpful.
She helped me decide what colors my bridesmaid & groomsmen should be in, even though she did not have too. & even though I knew what dress I wanted as soon as I put it on, she insisted that just in case, so I know FOR SURE, to try on more than one, which I am so glad I did because now I have no reservations about my dress & couldn't have love it anymore.
It was also on sale so I feel like the price was great as I didn't want to spend an outrageous amount on a wedding dress that you wear one time, but I still wanted to be that drop dead gorgeous bride & I feel like this fits just what I was looking for.
She listened to my price range & exactly what I wanted, she was very helpful there & even let me look at the dress alone before I would walk out to my friends & family who made it a little intimidating. I didn't want them to change or sway my mind so she even allowed me extra time to take a look alone in the dressing room before & after showing my friends & family the dress.
She was patient & kind & the price was great!

You know what you're getting at David's Bridal: wide selection and great value. They have pretty much anything and always seem genuinely glad to help. I bought an accessory there that I changed my mind on later and they can only do exchanges. They cannot do any kind of store credit or put it towards services like alterations. This was a little frustrating since it was only 2 weeks before the wedding and I already had all the merchandise I needed. So as long as you're sure about what you're buying, its a great deal.

A word of caution: DON'T GIVE PHONE # OR EMAIL TO THEM! They will sell it to literally everyone and it's a huge pain.

I have mixed feelings about David's Bridal. On one hand, the dress that I ended up buying was absolutely beautiful. I received a lot of compliments and was constantly asked where I got it. However, the only reason I got this dress is because my mother saw it in the store and asked for us to try it. The sales lady that was supposed to be helping me was not listening to what I wanted, and would say something along the lines of "That's how it's supposed to look" when I would tell her that I didn't like something. I felt very pressured in the store as all of the sales people work on commission. I believe that if I had not already been at a different store and knew what I wanted I would be pressured into getting a dress that was not really me.

We were happy with the dresses we selected, however, I was sold a dressed in a larger size than I need and was charged more for alterations. The alterations ended up costing several hundreds of dollars more because of this. Also, the dress my partner bought for $1,300 went on sale and 30 days later was less than $700. This review is for the Lombard,Illinois location. I would recommend shopping around before you go to David's bridal.

I was very disappointed with David's Bridal. I had wonderful service when I bought my dress, and after that, they really didn't seem to care any more. I had the worst nightmare with my shoes (took from October to February and two pairs to get the dye done correctly without a million spots), and I stood around and waited forever several times. While the people there are mostly friendly, they are just too busy and don't have the time to provide the service you'd expect from a bridal shop. I will say though, I love my dress and thought the price was fair.

I actually worked with the David's Bridal in Aurora, IL but I couldn't find it in the vendor listing. This place is so popular and fun to visit. The sales team is so helpful and knowledgeable. They remembered me by name and face...they were there to be helpful from the time I ordered my dress, at 3 wk postpartum, to the time I picked it up after needing no alterations. I loved visiting this location, they have many samples to choose from and have the knowledge to help you narrow down you choice.

If there is one thing about my wedding that I would change, it would be that I should have done a little more shopping and research with my wedding dress. I was the Bride that was not going to spend a lot of money on my dress, mostly because I didn't see the point, so I decided to go to David's Bridal. The irony of the situation is that after all was said and done, i.e. dress, veil, undergarments and alterations, everything cost close to $2,000. David's Bridal is not a cheap as people may think and for being a "big box" store, its not as convenient as you may think. For one, it is always jammed packed with people. There is never a good time to go unless you go at 1:00 on a Wednesday afternoon so if you work that is not a possibility. The sales girls seem to have very little knowledge about their dresses. I had a difficult time buying a dress because of my bust so I bought my dress based on the information that was given to me that my dress could be taken out three dress sizes. However, when I went to get it altered I was told that they could not taken anything out of my dress. Thankfully I was able to get a new dress in the size i needed ordered in time to get altered before my wedding. It was an added stress that could have been avoided if the sales girl could have confirmed with alterations, which was another disaster. The alterations done on my dress were awful. First they took in too much and then not enough. I stood up on the platform for 90 minutes while the girl worked on the bustle and when I came to pick up my dress, it looked nothing like it so I had to stand up there again for ANOTHER 90 minutes. Then even on my wedding day, it did not bustle correctly. When I complained to management she looked at me and said sorry and carried on with her day. She did not seem to care. Although the dress was beautiful I feel it was not worth the money and for the money I spent I wish I would have had a better experience.

I loved my dress from David's - of course, afterward, I came to realize it was a little pricey with the undergarments and stuff - My dress was a regular size, although I am petite, but I chose to have it altered elsewhere. Overall, I wish I had done more shopping around, but I definitely loved my dress!

Of all the vendors I used during the "wedding planning" process, they were my least favorite. They were very nice and accomodating prior to my purchasing the dress. But, afterward, they frequently had a impolite attitude with me. They failed to call me when my dress arrived. Then, when they did call, chastized me for having not already picked up the dress and threatened to send it back. It was the first time I had heard the dress had arrived! Similarly, the junior bridesmaids dresses were a problem. They call 2 people 3-4 times about these dresses, whose pick up time had already been scheduled. I think this store has a purpose. . . . you get what you pay for. . . . I love my dress but if I had to do it again, I wish I would have purchased it elsewhere.

David's Bridal was a great experience. On my bridal appointment day the girls absolutely made me feel special and were so nice and helpful! They listened to what I asked for, kept everything within my budget and were very attentive and not pushy. I had all my alterations at David's as well and the dress came out absolutely perfect, I loved it. My bridesmaid's dresses were also purchased from David's and the girls loved their dresses. The price was awesome and the dresses were so cute!! I went back in to David's for a few accessories right before the wedding and the women working were so helpful and really great to work with.

I know that David doesn't have the great reputation, but I was happy with my dress. I feel that because they double and triple book their sales consultants at times, that it causes service struggles a bit. The consultant tries really hard but you really can't serve 3 people at once. The best part of my dress was the fit. My consultant ordered it in a petite and I didn't have one stitch altered. All I needed was to add a bustle.

David's bridal did a good job with helping me find my dream dress on a budget. It didn't fit as well as the sample dress I tried on the first day, so we had to get alterations.
I would recommend purchasing a sample dress off the rack, or buying it online somehow because the atlerations cost me almost as much as the dress- buy the dress, find your own alterations.

I initially didnt go to them. My first appointment was at their canton ohio location. i could write a book on how bad it was. Once i left that store i promptly called this one and they confirmed they had my dress in my size and could hold it for the time i needed to get back to illinois. I got there about an hour to two hours before my appointment but they got me right in (i was thrilled because we were in the car for 8 hours so i wanted to get this done and go home). The dress was perfect and we signed up for the card and bought the dress and was our the door in 20mins! I also purchased my necklace and earrings from them which looked lovely with the dress. My husband bawled as i walked down the isle in my dream dress as did i. it was perfect. Thank you Schaumburg DB for a great dress!

Stunning Oleg Cassini Gown!

The sales consultant from the Schaumburg, IL location, Teresa was very helpful, personable and easy going. I was already prepared with pictures, gown styles and numbers so I didn’t have to spend much time browsing hundreds of dresses on hangers. I ended up buying an Oleg Cassini gown, something I wasn’t going to try on until my bridesmaid asked me to. I loved the dress as soon as I put it on; I knew it was the one. I went back a second time with more dresses picked out but stayed with the first choice. The third time I went to this location was for alterations, Hannah was very helpful and nice, I was actually very pleased with the alterations and the bustle she did on my gown.

I got my wedding dress, flower girl dress, mother-of-the-bride dress, and bridesmaids' dresses at the David's Bridal in Schaumburg, IL. One of my bridesmaids lives in NY and was able to order from, pick up and have alterations done, to her dress as well as the flower girl dress, at a store near her, even though we ordered from the Schaumburg, IL store. One of my other bridesmaids was able to order from and pick up her dress from the Downers Grove/Wheaton location. The versatility of this process was flawless and made things so easy. When it came time to choose my dress, the staff was very patient, pleasant and helpful. As most know, choosing a wedding dress can be extremely stressful. I never felt pressured or discouraged at the Schaumburg store. Once I purchased the dress, they were very clear what my next steps were and how much everything would cost for alterations and whatnot. I highly recommend David's Bridal. They have a large, modern selection of dresses for all sizes and body types (as well as some not-so-modern styles)...for brides, mother-of-the-brides and bridesmaids. When reviewing the prices that I have added to my review, please keep in mind all of the stuff that I ordered through David's: my wedding dress, 3 bridesmaids dresses, a flower girl dress, a mother-of-the-bride dress, my shoes and clutch, a bra and veil. That is a lot of merchandise for a reasonable prices.

I used David's Bridal to purchase my wedding dress and to purchase all of the bridesmaids dresses. I recommend them for their value and the quality of dress for what you pay for but there were a few issues that I wasn't so thrilled with. Each time I went there, whether it be to shop or for fittings, I felt like they were rushing me and the attendant who was supposed to be working with me was no where to be found half the time. I also had issues with many of the bridesmaids dresses where the girls were told they would be in by a certain date only to be told at that date that it would be another month or two.
Aside from that, I loved my wedding dress and I loved the woman who did the alterations. The dress looked amazing on the wedding day. I got the dress on clearance which was a big plus as well.
I would still recommend DB to other brides and if I had to do it all over again I'd still use them for my wedding.

I bought my dress and veil from Davids Bridal. The dress was lace with pearl beading but was half the price of simple dresses I've seen in other stores. It also arrived within a month. The alterations, however, were super expensive. They quoted me almost the same price as the dress! Luckily, I was able to negotiate that price down, which I highly suggest other brides do as well. Also, another suggestion: when purchasing the veil online, I left it in my cart because I decided to wait a couple more days before buying it. The site sent me a 10% off coupon because I had left it in the cart so I was able to save like $15. Worth the wait!

Most brides know by now that Davids Bridal caters to the mass market. Their selection and prices are great. I was aware of this so I prepared to mitigate any hiccups. I made an appointment to come during the week when it was less busy. They had other brides there, but not as busy as during the weekends. Overall, my experience was to be expected for given their low prices.

My bride ordered a dress and scheduled for the bridesmaids dresses to be fitted as well. After fittings and orders were in place. My wife received a call telling her they did not have the color in their books any more. Not all members of the bridal party were informed even though they went in for fittings well after david's called us. The result was several bridesmaids wearing different colors at the wedding. we have many pictures showing the 'Quality' of David's handiwork. This was an important day. but only to us as far as the store was concerned.

I bought my dress from David's Bridal and I must admit, I wasn't completely happy with my experience. I felt like my dress was pushed on me by the sales associate who kept telling me that the dress was discontinued and that I should purchase it right away. Also, when I went back for to get sleeves attached, I realized they only had 2 styles. It's very surprising that such a big bridal chain would only have 2 styles of cap sleeves for attachment!! I'm a bigger girl so their sleeves dont go well with my dress or on me....quite disappointing!! Not to mention I paid a large amount of money for my dress and now have to pay extra for everything else. At least they were quick in getting me my dress and have a large selection to choose from.

Not only did we purchase my dress and accessories here, but my 2 bridesmaids, my flower girl and my mother all got their dresses and accessories here. We all had amazing experiences. Everyone was always helpful and made sure we were taken care of. So much so that our flowergirl dress ended up having to be hunted down, and shipped to Illinois from Florida because it was the LAST of it's kind in the entire organization.

Everyone couldn't get over how gorgeous my dress was, along with my bridesmaids and flowergirl and my mother. It was just perfect and I can't stop looking at pictures and I cant get over how beautiful everything turned out!

Although a franchise they were great-- good thing bc we were going to go to House of brides -- but had terrible service so we went across the street to David's bridal. My only negative feedback which was quickly corrrected was with regards to alterations -- make sure you try on your dress and bring the heals you will be wearing -- I did and realized that they had never altered the hem of my dress -- so the poor seamstress sat on the floor while I had the dress on until it was perfect... so just makes sure your alterations are done.... Also my dress came in sooner than expected -- which was a big plus!!! All my BM got their dresses from here and we went with the watermelon color which mens wearhouse also has... so it all matched PERFECT!

The woman who greeted me at the door appeared very inconvenienced by me popping in to browse dresses. Most of us women are only married once & don't know that an appointment is preferred. Once I was actually in the store the sales staff was very nice & accommodating. I ended up purchasing a $750 dress on the spot. I loved my dress but will still not forget how unwelcome I felt in that store.

The only reason I ended up at David's Bridal during my wedding gown search was that White by Vera Wang collection was launched there. I went in the store knowing exactly what I wanted and less than an hour later I purchased the gown. It was shipped to the store within just two weeks. The sales girl that helped me was neither professional nor knowledgable.

I loved my dress, but if they sold it anywhere else, I would have purchased it elsewhere. You get what you'd expect at David's Bridal. It is not a boutique. I waited 20 minutes for my consultant. I picked out all my own dresses to try on in that time. She didn't do very much. The alterations were not very good. They took my dress out in the bust and then it was too big, and my bustle kept coming undone.

All I have to say is...dress selection is great there. There are a bunch of dresses and styles to choose from at reasonable prices. However, please find another place to get your dress altered. The alterations department is not so hot these days. Not to mention on top of not being great it is really expensive as well.

On my first fitting, a month prior I was called to ask to change my appointment time up to a half hour earlier then it was scheduled. No problem...go there with my dress, a consultant says to put my slip, shoes and bra on and someone will be right with me. Well, guess what...who ever called me to change my appointment never told anyone to be there and I sat for over 45 minutes (past my original appointment time) until they called someone on. The lady doing my dress repeatedly apologized while she fixed my dress.

On my second fitting...they dress was too loose on top so they immediately measure me, because apparently its my fault, once the manager looks and sees they screwed up she tells me to wait and takes my dress in so much that I can't breathe and broke the hook in the process. I was told by some older woman to relax its just a hook. My quick appointment turned into a two hour fiasco, with unapologetic people on the other end.

I won't even go into the issues a couple of my bridesmaids went through with their dresses there.

Needles to say... would I buy a dress from David's bridal again the answer would be yes! I just will never ever have anything altered there again. I feel like still no one really apologized for all of this garbage and I think its because they just don't care. Pretty sad.

The only thing David's Bridal has going for them is their prices! You cannot beat the prices. The look of their shop is not the nicest, the one-on-one service is not good at all. The place is a complete madhouse! They try to pack in as many brides and bridesmaids at one time and you are all trying to fight over using a mirror. You get limited time to try on dresses and the person helping you is also helping other brides at the same time. Once i had a dress on I knew pretty quickly whether i liked it or not, however the lady helping me was gone and i had to wait 10 to 15 minutes for her to come back and help get the dress off me and to put the next one on. i was at the end of my time limit and sad to not have had any luck when the lady brought out a dress to try on that i didnt pick out myself. She said that after seeing all the dresses that i didnt like she got a feel for what i might like. I tried on the dress reluctantly but ended up loving it! So i was so happy that she came through for me. However it really took a long time. i dont feel it was her fault, i feel that David's Bridal purposely creates this kind of atmosphere.

I got my dress from the $100 gown sale and didn't need any alterations. I think it was a manager that was assisting me on that day, she was great with showing me different veils, jewelry and so on. After I bought my dress I noticed there was a small spot on my dress and I took it back in and they had it fixed in about 5 min. After the wedding I took it in to have it preserved and they were very generous and have me a really good break on the price. This place was really great when I bought my dress, when I went back to purchase the bra they weren't as wonderful. This place was far better than Rockford though!!

I didn't purchase my dress at this David's. I had my alterations done at this (Schaumburg) location. I was very disappointed. They took in to much around my chest and my dress wouldn't zip. They could have let it back out (for an additional fee). They also hemmed the dress so short that you could see my ankle when I stood still. My dress was supposed to be floor length. They could not fix it so they ordered me a new dress. Once the dress came in, I had to start all over with alterations. They were not flexible with appointments as not it was "crunch" time. They would not fit me in when I was off of work. My only option was to take time off of work (I work a normal job 8am-4pm). I was not pleased at all. My dress ended up perfect after I had to micromanage the appointments.

This is THE WORST David's Bridal I've ever set foot in, and hope to never set foot in again.

2 of my bridesmaids live out of town, one teaches overseas in American schools and is periodically back in Chicago for summer breaks. So I had to stagger my bridesmaid dress shopping. I went with my bridesmaid who teaches overseas before she left, and before I shopped with my other bridesmaids. We were getting ideas, and from the moment we said that, our sales associate was "done" with us. She would disappear, and angrily walk to our room (upon request only) to rush-deliver dresses. She was extremely condescending to my bridesmaid. We complained and had a new associate assigned.

Later that day, I called and complained to customer service.

That same bridesmaid was back in town during Thanksgiving, after my other bridesmaids bought their dresses. When she's in town, she lives in Schaumburg, so we went there again for convenience's sake. I called ahead, SPECIFICALLY asking for a different associate than the one we had. Sure enough, who is assigned to us when we arrive? The same witch. It's bad enough that 6 months later, she's still working there, but that she's assigned to us after I specifically asked her not to be. The fact that we were BUYING a dress that day did not make her less rude.

The next day, I again called and complained to customer service. This time, I asked for some retribution. "All together, my bridesmaids spend about $500 on your company. What can YOU do to make sure I give you more business?" I asked for a gift card to buy jewelry or bags, or a discount on what my girls spent. Nothing.

I'm not dissing David's as a company, just the Schaumburg location. STAY AWAY.

My bridesmaids however had nothing but problems.

I loved my dress from David's Bridal. I looked online at the picture reviews to decided what would be the most flattering and matched my personal style. I brought the style numbers with me and she brought my my favorite ones first and I new immediately which one was MY dress. The only problems I had was that I made my first fitting appointments months before and when I got there, they didn't have me on the books and they were sooo busy. They did finally get me in, but it was a little stress that I didn't need at that moment.

Bought my wedding dress, the bridesmaid dresses and the mother of the bride dress all from Davids. Had wonderful luck. Helpful employees, lots of choices and good prices! The only thing I did not buy there was my accessories cause I thought they were a bit over priced on that kind of stuff. So I bought my slip, bra, Veil, Tiara, garter and shoes else where, but the prices on their dresses were excellent from my opinion and they had a great selection to choose from!

I ordered my wedding invitations from David's Bridal online. I was pleasantly surprised by the thickness of the paper, it was definitely high quality paper. The proof that I was able to review on the website was great. I love that I was able to see it ahead of time. The end product was EXACTLY as pictured. Although I was very much satisfied with my order, the only negative was the price. I shopped for invitations a lot and they seem to be universally overpriced. I guess that's just the way it is. Overall, I'm one very satisfied customer. My order was received quickly and without any issues. I highly recommend David's Bridal for invitations (and dresses!).

The girls at David's Bridal really helped me find THE dress. I did bring my friends, who knew my style and they helped too. I bought my dress on a great sale, a year before the wedding. We got pregnant 3 months before the wedding and when I went in for my 1st fitting, the dress didn't fit!! I began to freak out, but the sales girl was cool as a cucumber! She said it was not a problem, and they brought out the bigger size!! Everything turned out great!

I got my wedding dress at David's. I knew since I was very little what I wanted... traditional ballgown.... lots of tulle, lots of beading...

I found online the perfect dress at David's Bridal so we made an appt and went to see it...

The dress that I fell in love with online in person weighed way to much for me... so i found another one that I fell in love with!!!

The dress was very pretty well made and a great price... the help you recieve is not a great, my sister (MOH) had to get dresses for me to try on and help me since my consultant was working with a few other brides and didnt really give me any attention, but that was find and kind of what I expected.

Overall LOVED my dress, exactly what I wanted and a wonderful price... we had a wonderful time shopping, but had little assistant.

The manager at Davids Bridal was very helpful. We had several changes just 3 weeks before the wedding and she was able to accomodate most of them. The dresses were great for the cost! My only problem was their return policy. Unfortunately my jr bridesmaid grew out of her dress and we were forced to buy a new one 2 weeks before the wedding. Now I am stuck with an unused dress and have been trying to sell it on ebay.

I had a great sales girl who helped me on multiple visits, first with friends and again when I came by myself to try and decide if I should purchase the Oleg Cassini CT203. Unfortunately, I had to drive down to St. Louis Missouri for an unsuccessful visit to Chatfield's (even though the shop and service was excellent) and visit the David's down there before I was shown the gown that I would wear down the aisle. I fell in love with the Oleg Cassini CWG345 and bought it on the spot - I only wish that the sales girl in Illinois would have shown me the dress that was more romantic/lacey/vintage like I kept asking for, but I got to enjoy a road trip with my future sister-in-law and it all worked out in the end!

Although I have had some pretty lousy service at David's Bridal, I couldn't be happier with the women who helped me find my wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses. I found that while looking for the styles of dresses I had in mind, they were spot on and were very honest and supportive! Although I think they need to definitely step it up a notch on quality of service, I would never get a special event dress anywhere else. They have GORGEOUS bridal dresses for well under $1,000 and bridesmaid dresses VERY rarely cost more than $150. These price points make it so reasonable and well worth it to shop there and make it much easier for brides like me who got married months out of college and had college student bridesmaids to afford dresses that looked stunning!

Davids has great prices but the one in schaumburg was really bad. They made us wait even when we had an appointment. They were rude, we didnt get any individual help, and the place was packed and uncomfortable. THey were also rude to my bridemaids when they went to pick up their dresses.

However, the rockford location was much better. THey were very nice and helpful. I drove an hour just so I didnt have to go to the schuamburg location.

I went to the Schaumburg location at first and then ended up at the Vernon Hills location for my July 31, 2010 wedding. I had an okay experience in Schaumburg, but went to Vernon Hills when the Schaumburg store wouldn't let me exchange my tiara. When I went to the Vernon Hills store, I couldn't have been more impressed with their service. Their manager let me exchange my tiara and Jazmina helped me pick out a new one and found the perfect necklace to go with my dress. When I talked to Schaumburg about getting alterations, they told me I had to come in very early since they were very busy during the summer. Vernon Hills was able to have me come in during the normal time frame. I did LOVED, LOVED, LOVED my dress from David's Bridal, but I felt like the Vernon Hills staff was much more personable. I felt like I was just another number at the Schaumburg store.

The day when we went to try on dresses for the first time the woman who helped us was very nice she really picked out dresses to fit my body and she didn't mind that I had like 5 people with me. She made me feel comfortable and really paid attention to what I said I wanted in a dress. They were very polite everytime they called to let us know things about the dress and the bridesmaid dresses they also were very attentive when helping my Mom and Mother in law find their dresses. I would reccomend Davids Bridal they have very nice dresses for great prices.

I got the bridesmaids dresses for our wedding here and they loved the design and colors, they were affordable and I loved the design so much I bought the same dress style for me in a different color to wear at my civil ceremony. For the most part the salespeople were nice and all, but nothing outstanding or anything. The selection for bridal gowns was a little limited so much so that I bought my dress elsewhere.
Their shoe selection was ok, but I wanted to have my shoes dyed and althought they do offer the service, I found a place online that has a much wider selection of shoes and did it for cheaper and the final product was great.
I liked what we did get from there - bridesmaids dresses, but I wouldn't go back for anything else.

I got my dress from David's Bridal, and it was beautiful - beading at the top with a lace overlay and a long train...I loved the dress and got many compliments on it. However, after I bought the dress, apparently they think their job is over. When I went in to have alterations, the seamstresses were not very friendly, and no one even helped me put on my dress...and a wedding dress is very hard to get on by yourself. And I went in four times for alterations, and for all of those visits no one helped me. I was really disappointed in the experience I had at Davids Bridal, they have horrible customer service...however, they do have pretty dresses at nice prices...so I guess its just a trade off.

I choose David's Bridal for my gown and my bridesmaids gowns for a few different reasons. One, I'm a plus size gal and I had a great choice in dresses unlike some other places who believe the only people who get married are a size 2. Second, all of my bridesmaid were from out of state and were able to order their dresses with no problems and received them faster than expected. Three the color that I chose was available in so many different styles of dresses for my girls. I had them choose the dress that fits their body type the best in the color of my choice. It was very convenient and made for a beautiful wedding. My only complaint is their outrageous alteration prices; a simple hem and an inch in the bust-line taken cost almost half of what I paid for the actual dress.

I bought my wedding dress back in 2008. I loved, loved, loved my wedding dress that I found at David's Bridal. I got lucky because it was on sale too. Michelle, the sales rep, was very helpful and accommodating even though the store was a little crowded. The alteration ladies were very experienced and did a great job. My only gripe was trying to find a dress for my junior bridesmaid. She is very petite and while we found a great dress for her, the alterations ended up costing more than the dress itself. Other than that I was pretty satisfied with my overall service.

I went to David's Bridal on a whim with my mom and sister. Since I hadn't made an appointment, I hoped that I could just look around and try on a few dresses. The woman who greeted us at the door was incredibly rude. We had walked around a bit and gotten ideas about what I wanted to try on when she approached us. While we walked around, we could see that no one was trying on dressed in the back rooms. She asked if she could help us and if we had an appointment. We told her no to having an appointment, but that I wanted to try on dresses. She immediately went into a rant about how we needed an appointment and all of the consulatants were busy. We asked her to just check and see if anyone was available. After much coaxing, she did. Not to our surprise, four women approached to help us. They wanted to commission...rightfully so. I was a super easy bride. To be honest, I was way more excited (and still am) about the marriage than the actual wedding. The third dress, which my mom had pulled, was the one. I bought it immediately and bought all of the accessories that night. I have to say, the convenience of being a national chain and having online access really appealed to me. The in-store merchandise was so convenient, and I really liked getting everything done on the spot. I had bridesmaids all over the place, including a pregnant one, so it really helped. They were flexible and even rush ordered dresses when initial sizes no longer fit my bridesmaids. For my last fitting, I was disappointed to discover that they gave me the wrong veil, couldn't find my dress and wanted to rush through my alterations. Luckily, my mom and the original receipts were with me. Everything got squared away, but I was really disappointed about the lack of professionalism and customer service provided. The cost definitely still entices me. I bought three other party dresses there for my bachelorette party, another wedding and just for fun. You can't beat the deals, but you have to definitely stand up for yourself!

All in all, I was very happy with my dress for the cost...it was beautiful!! That said, some of my bridesmaids had some trouble with their alterations and ended up paying quite a bit extra, which I found to be very disappointing. Also, one of the threads on my bustle broke halfway through the reception and we had to go on a hunt for a safety pin to fix it. :( Overall my experience wasn't a bad one, and I'm not sure I'd recommend them even though the front staff (non-alterations group) was very pleasant, helpful and professional to work with.

Davids Bridal was not the store that I intended to buy my wedding dress at. I had heard mixed feedback on their service and selection and was a bit leary. After meeting with a consultant, I tried on about 12 dresses. The dress I got - I loved and it turned out to be discontinued. This made for a great price drop! The service that I received while shopping for my dress was outstanding. Our consultant paid attention to each detail that I described and kept working until we found the dress that I wanted. There were no questions asked, just 'how can we help'. The staff was very curteous and professional and I would recommend the Schaumburg Davids bridal.
The one feedback point that I have is with regard to alterations and fittings. I inquired about these services and was told that the services are run independentely from 'Davids'. I found that my fittings were rushed and it was very hard to communicate with the staff as they did not speak fluent English. This made my alterations for myself and my brides maids difficult. They also double booked our appointments, which made the actual fitting run late and the entire process seem rushed.

I went to several stores and actually went to David's twice. On my second trip I was stressing out because I was at the point where if I didnt order a dress or get one there It might not come in on time. Britney was great, the first visit I tried on about 10 dresses and then the 2nd time about 25 more!! I finally found a very pretty dress and was able to go home with it that day very relieved that I didnt have to worry about it not coming in on time etc.. To me, the dresses there do not seem to be as nice quality wise as far as the fabric etc as the designer dresses but the dresses are in stock so you know what you are getting. Plus, you are only going to wear it one day so as long as it looks nice in photos save yourself the worry of it coming in on time and how your size will fit you etc plus they are much more reasonable than designer prices. Where they get you though is with the alterations so you may want to shop around. I went back for my fitting and all I needed was a bustle the rest of it fit me perfectly... a hour later and several times of me having to tell the seamstress that what she wanted to do looked awful.. we finally got something that looked nice and the final charge was 95 dollars!! That seemed like a awful lot to me for 7 pieces of ribbon, 7 stitch loops and a few extra "pick up" stitches. But, I had just spent over a hour of my time there so I wasnt about to go anywhere else. Everything was perfect when I picked it up it had been steamed etc. but like I said I just felt the price was a little steep. Also... check ebay for veils and tiara's etc. You can get almost the exact same thing they are showing for as little as $20 and they want to charge $150!! Veil material is pretty basic so the only difference I saw was that most places use plastic combs and they use metal but to save $130...... who cares!! Most brides only wear the veil at the ceremony anyway.

Overall, I am very pleased with my dress and accessories from the wedding. For the price and how they looked, I looked like I spent more than I did. As for the service. I was not pleased with a few things. First of all, at the store they kept telling me I was a size four, but I knew I was a two. Unfortunately they did not have a size two in the dress I wanted. Instead of calling other places to see if they had a size two, they told me I could pay for it and have it shipped and I could not return it. Now I understand that policy, but never once did they say they could see if other David's bridals had it. Now it wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have to have the entire dress altered. They took it in everywhere! My seemstress was baffled why they would sell me such an enormous dress. It is because of her hard work and dedication that it looked perfect. The second issue I had was without my permission, David's gave away my personal number and I was getting solicitations every day, sometimes twice or three times a day. I am on the do not call list, so this made me very angry. They had no right to do that. Now for somewhere that is affordable, they will make you look fantastic for less than many other stores. But know what you want, and go to different shops to make sure you have the right size. Also, preface giving them your number by saying that they do not have permission to give that number away. Overall, it was stressful but I still love my dress.

I tried on several dresses which looked on the rack like ones I would really like. Did not like any of them. The sales girl brought me a dress I had initially dismissed and my mom convinced me to try it. I fell in love. She was able to take the parts of each dress that I liked and didn't like and find something I would love. The price was great too. They were even able to do a last minute alteration the week before my wedding. I ended up losing weight I wasn't expecting.
The bridesmaids dresses were beautiful. They had fun colors and styles to chose from. However, the dresses I chose ended up being discontinued in the color I had chosen. The staff was able to help me find stores who still had the dresses I needed in the right sizes.
The dresses are reasonably priced. Just watch out for the accesories. Some of them are overpriced.

They were very helpful the day of my appointment when I picked out my dress, but the few times I went in on a Saturday without an appointment, I was treated almost like a bother. Once was just to pick up the dress, once was to buy a slip, and once was to look at veils. They really tried me to push me to buy everything the day I bought the dress, which I guess would have been easier if I had the money for it all at once. I recommend them for the dress shopping but know that you really need an appointment as early in the morning as possible and understand that it will be a bit of a mad house when you go on the weekend.

I was so dissapointed with this store overall. I had used them because my entire bridal party was spread throughout the country and I knew each lady could access a David's in her area. Outside of that - there wasn't much positive to say. Each time I went in the manager was barking at someone new, in front of customers, and she was never patient with me - always pushing me to spend more money. The dress I selected was beautiful - though seemed to need much more attention than I was originally told. When i bought it - it needed no alterations. I took it in for a fitting and it needed over $200 in alterations. Then weeks later at the final fitting it still wasn't right and additional alterations needed to be made - the dress still didn't fit right on the day of the wedding. The shoes I bought there and had dyed (cornflower blue) there - were still white when I picked them up, but didn't realize it until a couple days later. I needed to make an extra trip to get them re-dyed. When I brought in a tiarra - purchased from a different David's I was told it was now out of stock and they couldn't repair the minor damages. They reccomended I buy a new one.
My ladies were told they didn't need to make appointments for gown fittings, and when they showed up they needed to schedule a time and come back. Each of them also had alterations problems and ended up spending too much money on the dresses all together.

We used David's Bridal for our bridesmaids dresses. Our overall experience was not a good one. We ordered the dresses 6 months before the wedding and with about 3 months before the wedding, they discontinued our color. We found this out when one of the bridesmaids went to order their dress. They did not notify us of the discontinuation. As a consequence of this, we were not able to buy matching flower girl ribbons and the flower girl ribbons had to be a different color. We were very disappointed with how they handled the discontinuation. They also did not do a very good job managing the various orders of the bridesmaids. They confused several of the girls' orders and would notify us that a dress was in for one girl, when it was actually another girl. They also called several times for a dress that had been picked up month's before. Finally, they in no way offered to "to make the situation right" given all of the problems that we encountered. For a store that is dedicated to the needs of brides and bridesmaids, they created a lot of unneeded stress and were somewhat unhelpful.

I really do not like the experience in David's Bridal. I find the workers I've talked to there to be rude and not helpful. The store is always just packed on the weekend and dirty. But, I will say I did buy my dress at David's bridal online and was terrifically impressed by that. The cost of the dress was phenominal and it was the perfect dress for me. They delivered it within about 4 days and it looked great. So, my vote is store, no, online yes. But, this is only for you if you are not getting a large wedding dress that would be best to try on in the store. Mine was a sleek dress, so online ordering worked.

I went to DB because they have plus size dresses that I could actually try on without clips on the back! However, they were sooo pushy I didn't like it and then we had some problems with picking dresses up. They said to me they had called me and left messages to come pick up my dress and bridesmaid dresses and I never recieved them. They said they had it marked that I had follow up calls, but in fact, after 2 or 3 weeks went past what the told me, I called them....then they were snooty when I got in there to pick them up. I had simply explained, no one had ever called me which is why I had called them....it was fine, I was just irritated, but in no way did I take that out on the girl helping me....I just smiled and picked stuff up, but I felt like the staff had maybe talked about me..."like ohhh that's the girl that was on the phone who said we didn't do something..." but I'll never know...just be cautious and don't let them pressure you!

David's Bridal is a good store because it is relatively inexpensive and very "user" friendly. The best part about shopping there is that they have sample dresses for all sizes so my bridesmaids who ranged from a size 2 to a size 22 could all try on dresses. (Unlike other bridal shops that only have sample dresses in size 6.)

My struggles with David's Bridal are mostly customer service. The day I bought my wedding dress and spent $800, everyone treated me like gold. But then every other time I came in, I felt very frustrated. For example, my bridesmaids and I were told to wait for someone to help us- No one ever came, so we just started looking and finally asked if we could use the dressing room. I bought my veil there and brought it in to get steamed a few days before the wedding and they charged me! Which I was told would not be the case!

In the end, I loved my dress and I loved my bridesmaid dresses. So, if you are on a budget and are very patient- then David's Bridal is a good place to go.

I bought my dress at a David's in Minnesota (where I now live) but when I went back home to IL for my wedding, I called David's to have my dress cleaned and steamed (which they assured me they would do for free) only because my dress had ben altered by someone other than a David's bridal seamstress, they wouldn't TOUCH my dress. Apparently if, while cleaning it, they were to damage it.. they can't be held responsible.. but if it had been their work, they could have just fixed it. Would have been helpful to have them tell me this when they SOLD me the dress.. so I ended up having to take it somewhere and paying 75 bucks just to have it steamed!!

I tried to get in quickly and get out quickly. I knew what I wanted and didn't want a bridal "experience". So, I was satisfied with my experience. However, my sister got a lot of attitude from the staff who ignored her when she needed help and moved on to (in my opinion) a bigger commission. I also had to wait A LOT. I'm not sure if they're understaffed but waiting 10 minutes to schedule an appointment with alterations and then another 10 to pay is a long time.

I'm giving this vendor a bad rating just because I had a bad experience with the consultant that I worked with when I was trying to find my dress. Im not gonna write why, but just an advise....NEVER go to the store on a weekend especially on a SUNDAY. Know what you want (tiara, veil, shoes, necklace...etc) & take your time. I still got my dress from them for a decent $$$, but the alteration killed me (it was almost the same as my dress...since Im petite).

Im not gonna write why, but just an advise....NEVER go to the store on a weekend especially on a SUNDAY. Know what you want (tiara, veil, shoes, necklace...etc) & take your time. I still got my dress from them for a decent $$$, but the alteration killed me (it was almost the same as my dress...since Im petite). Read less

I visited David's Bridal for my dress and was very impressed considering negative comments I have heard from others. It was clean and very well-organized. I discussed what style I had in mind, and they brought me dresses in MY SIZE to try on - simply wonderful! The alterations were done perfectly. The only negative experience I had was that there was another sales associate (not mine) who kept on pushing me to buy more stuff. In my opinion, the best place to shop for a wedding dress in the area (and I tried out several).

I loved this location since I had gonna to the store in Vernon Hills and was treated horrible. Overall most people in this store are ok but the store manger Michelle is extremely rude. I only worked with Michelle Sheffield who is the most amazing work their. She truly goes well and beyond her way to help you. She helped me find the right dress actually I ended up with two dresses that I bought and loved and used. I would not recommend using their alterations or pressing they are horrible ladies that did not get my stuff done when they said they would. I gave them both my dresses a month before to get them pressed. I had to make an apt to pick them up I was told on Sunday so I drove over an hour to pick them up. They were not ready. They promised the next day. They were not completely done yet they said they need more time my wedding was that week. I didn't care at this point I just wanted to take them with me. I know they are trying to fix this problem. I also got my bridesmaid dresses here and they were absloutley beautiful they fit both my really skinny and bigger girls perfectly. They also shipped quickly for having fourteen. I also had two girls who needed to change their dresses one because she lost 3 dresses sizes and the other just had surgery and needed a size bigger. They did this very quickly. Overall I would say just use Michelle Sheffield when you go to this location. The prices here are great i got 2 dress for less then a $1,000. I also got my jewelry, shoes, pruse, undergraments, tiara, viels, and my bridesmaids jewelry here. Overall this place is not bad considering its not name brand.

I purchased my dress independently so I only worked with them for bridesmaids dresses and flower girl dress and looked at their veils. It was nearly impossible to get a sales clerk to do more than show me to a room and leave me to fend for myself. One sales clerk was very pushy toward my maid of honor as she helped me choose the bridesmaids dresses. The clerk insisted to us that we get one dress even though neither my maid of honor nor I liked it at all. She acted offended when we went with the dress that both of us loved rather than her pick. The same thing happened with veils - she pushed and pushed on veil which I did not care for at all. Then when I went with my flower girl to pick out her dress, no clerk was to be had and we ended up just getting ourselves a fitting room because we were sick of waiting. I suppose you get what you pay for with them. They are inexpensive but I found them difficult to work with.

This store was easy to deal with. The saleswoman was very helpful and got a number of different dresses for me to try on. When we did find "the one", it was super easy to buy (in store already!) and we were able to put it on hold for a few days so I could make my final decission. Returns are sticky, as I found out with the slip I didn't want, but you're bound to run into that at an bridal shop.

I was not happy with Davids Bridal at all. I ordered my bridesmaids dresses from them and was very unhappy with their service. They were unorganized and very unprofessional. I received 2 phone calls from them telling me that the dresses were in and both times, when I drove 40 miles to pick them up, I was informed that they had not arrived yet and the phone call was a mistake. I ordered the dresses 12 weeks before my wedding and was told they would be in in 6 weeks. They didn't come in until exactly 2 weeks before the wedding, making it impossible for the girls to have alterations done at the store. I will not be shopping at Davids Bridal again.

David's Bridal is rightly well known in the wedding industry. I ordered my dress online and received it in about one weeks time. I even returned it for a smaller size and the turn around was very quick.

My only complaint is that they suggested I order a dress size larger than the one that actually fit me in the store. This would have been way too big and caused me to spend unnecesary money on alterations. I wore a six at my wedding but they suggested a ten! Be careful that they don't convince you to buy larger just so they can get you on expensiver alterations.

I went to House of Brides which was right across the street first and let me tell you, what a rude bunch of women! Even soliciting on the phone, RUDE!!! So, after getting all my prom dresses from David's Bridal, I decided what the hell, why not. I went there and I didn't see entirely what I wanted but I shopped at Davidsbridal.com and I found my dress! I called the store and set up my appointment and they were able to order the right dress size. When it came to my first fitting, there were these sweet Italian "grandmas" in the back just sewing away, and honestly the best seamstresses I've ever met, and me being plus-sized, I've met a few. Also, if you have people in your wedding party all over the US, trust me, David's Bridal will work with you to make sure that everyone gets the right dress by the right time. I highly recommend this place.

Was not happy with the service at all. Very unprofessional, all they seem to want is your money from the time you set foot in the door. They only seem to be interested in the people that spend the most on a dress. Lost every appointment I made even after I called to confirm the next day that they had written me in. Very upsetting when you are trying to plan the biggest day of your life.

I thought I was getting a great deal for my wedding dress. I fell in love with it, and the lady helping me pick out a dress was very helpful. However, the nightmare began when I went to pick up my dress and they ordered the dress one size too small, and I hadn't gained weight! Because it was too small, they had to let the dress out, and the seamstresses were rude and very unprofessional. In the end, a week before my wedding, the dress was too big, and they said they didn't have time to fix it. I ended up having to constantly pull my dress up throughout my wedding day! And even though it was their error, they refused to compensate me. All I got was a discount on my veil, which I had to exchange, because the beads were coming off of the first one.

I made an appointment to find my dress, and while I was punctual, their staff was not. I waited for a little over a half an hour, and was actually about to leave when the employee who was going to do my consulation came. When I walked in the staff seemed bored, unfriendly, and unhelpful.
The only positive thing I really have to say is that the woman who did my consultation, although late, was very nice and very helpful. If it weren't for her positive attitude, I would not have bought my dress there.
When my dress came in, no one even called to notify me, and I was not offered a fitting room to try it on in when I went to the store to pick it up.
Basically, I wouln't really recomend them.

For the most part the experience was positive. Once they didn't have an appointment written down and we had to wait quite a while. The consultants were very friendly and helpful (the one I started with left the company and I was assigned to another). I was unhappy with the bust of the dress after the fitting and had to go back multiple times. It still didn't lay quite right by the wedding day. It was a madhouse in the fitting area every time we went, but it was kind of fun to see other brides in various stages of their dress search. The dress I chose was beautiful and fairly inexpensive.

I was really really suprised when I walked into David's Bridal and found my perfect wedding gown! It was the first and only dress I tried on... I was a pregnant bride, set to walk down the aisle at 6 months. Everyone assured me I would fit into my dress because I'm so small and this was my first pregnancy... we sure were suprised when we found out at 5 months that we were expecting TWINS! Needless to say, I didn't fit into my dress. Haha. The little old women in the alteration dept were so helpful in keeping up with all the alterations that I needed as my belly kept growing! They were always very attentive. My dress was not expensive which was of great relief to me - and also to my bridesmaids. I was able to choose a dress in their budgets. My bridesmaids lived all over the country so to have a store that was available to them was helpful to all of us. Less running around for me, and easier for them to try sizes on, etc.

I almost didn't go to David's Bridal because it so cliche, but I'm glad we ended up there because it made everything easier! :)

This DB location had the shoes come back from being dyed. They never called to say they were in, and when I called them, no one could find any paperwork there. I drove in, showed them paperwork, and they'd had the shoes in for over a MONTH. I had to express ship the shoes to b'maids, so they could wear them for their fittings.
Not a terrible place--enjoyed hours trying on (w/ b'maids), with NO PRESSURE, but was quite disappointed by their communication and follow-up skills.

They were very unprofessional. When you are buying your wedding dres it isupposed to be a great experience, that is all about you. Well at David's it was not. The management did not care that the service was poor when told about it. Then when I had to have my alterations done, they misplaced my dress and it di not get done when it was supposed to. I spent a lot of money on my dress and accessories along with al lthe girls dresses and accessories. I actually had to pick my dres up form the location in Schaumberg and take it to the one in Vernon Hills in order to have it pressed and ready to go for my wedding day because I was told by schaumberg that they did not have the time to do it. Would not reccomend schaumberg david's bridal.

Their prices were good and variety as well. I was a little disappointed that 3 weeks before the wedding, one of my pregnant bridesmaids needed a new dress (hers didn't fit). Apparently they didn't give her the proper 'fake belly' for trying on the dress. I had to pay $20 extra for them to ship the dress from another store to my store. When I asked them to waive the fee, they tried to but since the 'register' wouldn't allow it, they couldn't waive it for me. Whatever happened to customer service?!?!

We got our flower girl dress from here and it didn't take more than a hour to decide. Maybe it was the fact that they didn't have many dresses to choose from. They were friendly but way understafed. The longest we waited was for someone to come and help us. Our dress came in earlier than expected. Overall, they weren't so bad.

We utilized David's Bridal for the bridesmaid's dress and were very happy that we found something reasonably priced that did not need much tailoring. I almost did buy a wedding dress there too so I experienced their customer service firsthand both trying on and just helping pick out. I do think on the weekends their staff gets a little busy with more than one customer at a time (which I don't appreciate) but in the end, I value my friend's opinions on how something looked more than the sales clerk trying to make a commission. For the price, I would recommend David's so long as you don't mine realizing down the line that millions of other people had the same dresses.

The bridesmaids dresses were purchased here. They were reasonablly priced, did not get the attention I would have like from the consultant, I think they schedule to many consultations at once especially on Saturday. We were going out and finding the dresses we wanted to try on. I may have not purchased my wedding gown there but I was getting 5 bridesmaids dresses there and feel Like I should have had some one helping us more than putting us in a room and walking away and not coming back to help.

I also felt bad that the girls had to pay for the dress in full before they would be ordered, a down payment should have been enough.

I actually bought my items at the Davids Briday in Portland Oregon, but had the alterations done in the Schaumburg location. The alterations department was very accomodating. When my strapless dress still wouldn't stay up after having the alterations complete, we devised a way to create straps out of the length of ribbon that was part of the tie in the back of my dress. They were very accomodating and a joy to work with while planning a long distance wedding.

The salesperson was not helpful and slightly condescending when I told her I wanted a very simple gown.

The dress was a good value, looking more expensive than it really was.

Pretty good price, nice people worked with me on getting the shade of dress correct and the size. WOULDN'T reccomend you get your alterations done there TOO PRICEY - find a local place for alterations, ask around someone always knows someone, or even a local dry cleaner will do alterations. (and the lady who did my alterations was a bit rude as she insulted the size of my rear compared to my bust)

The company overall was great and I ended up with everything I wanted. They were able to squeeze me in at the last minute and we found everything we needed for my wedding in one night without having to order anything.

That said, I must say that I tried and tried to explain to the woman helping us that I didn't want a dress with a bunch of taffeta or tulle on the exterior and I described what I DID want it to look like but she seemed bound and determined to find the opposite. Eventually my sister jumped in and just went out to the racks, found 3 dresses that were exactly what I was describing and I ended up taking one home.

David's bridal is a great place to find variety at a great price... but the sales people aren't always the most helpful.

I had a hard time getting people to come and help me-- and I was shopping by myself, so I needed help! They also didn't help me figure out what size I needed, and I ordered a size too big thinking that it's easier to cut a dress down than to lose weight to fit into it. It didn't help that they only had 8's to try on, and I'm a 4. So I ordered a 6. Well, it really was too big, and with a beaded bodice, it was almost impossible to cut down the bodice to really fit right. The dress never did really fit right.
They also seemed irritated when I didn't want to buy all my underclothes and support garments there. The whole experience was just disappointing.
