My wedding dress is absolutely gorgeous and it cost way less than other brides spend. The alterations department was also an absolute joy to work with--I was worried that they wouldn't be able to take the dress out, and they were able to. The only downside is that you don't get the same attention you do in other boutiques. Often, I couldn't find the sales associate that was supposed to be helping me. She also didn't do any measurements and simply guessed (leading to me having to take my dress out).

My experience at the Davids Bridal in Springfield, VA was awesome! The staff there were all very friendly and helpful! When I showed up for my first appointment the person who helped me, and I can't remember her name, was amazing! She handed me their booklet of dresses and told me I had an hour and thirty minutes to tey on as many dresses as I wanted. As fast as I could try them on she would bring me more! So with that in mind I decided to try this dress on that I never would thought of as my actual wedding dress, but just looked lime a fun dress so said, "hey, why not!" This was the secind dress I tried on and imediately fell in love!!! I tried everything else on that I had chosen, but still kept coming back to that dress, and when I put it back on and they paired it with the perfect vail I had my moment of "this is my dress and nobody can chamge my mind!" From then on they were always very helpful, when I came back the next week to actually purchase the dress and try it on one more time they had no poblem letting me keep it on for a long time while my parents, sister, and aunt all trickled in at different times to see what it looked like! No rushing!! It was great! My dress came in quickly, and when I came back for my fitting which was great as well. My only small thing was I wish they had made the dress a little shorter, because on my wedding day I kept tripping on my dress, but that was mostly my fault for not making completely sure it was the right length. Thanks Davids Bridal Springfield VA!!!!

I would NOT recommend Davids Bridal to anyone for their wedding dress.

I went in the FIRST time and was greeted by a nice lady. I then had a woman helping me pick out wedding dresses that did not speak English. I found what I thought would be the dress I would get married in, but I was wrong.

I went in for my fitting and my dress hand nipples that werent even mine! I refused to walk down the isle like that and their alterations lady told me that this dress has a lot of problems that they are aware of and they could not do anything to help me. She also told me that she could not make my dress "perfect" (Direct quote)

That is NOT what a bride wants to hear on her day. Then I had them bring over a "manager" from the store and all she would do was give a few dollars off the dress. Eventually we came to the agreement that I could try on other dresses that didn't have a problem.

I found MY wedding dress the second time. I took it in for alterations and all it needed was heming.
Went in for my second hem and it was uneven and I needed a bra.

MInd you everytime I went in, they had a different wedding date for me. I WROTE on all on my papers and told them EVERYTIME my exact wedding date, but they couldn't get it right.

Then my bra wouldn't come in in time due to their fault so after much argumentation, I made them find me a new bra and have it ship to my house for free.

It was a hassle that I didn't need and no one seemed to know what they were doing.

This DB was nice to work with. I found my dress on the first visit and the show they put on for brides that ring the bell was fabulous! The hiccups I had were quickly fixed but added more stress to an already stressful event. the dyed all of the attendants shoes the same color even though I had them in alternating colors. My shoes came in and were the wrong color and missing stones. Again, they quickly ordered a new pair. Everything was well and in order by the time of my wedding.

After going to lots of high end boutiques in Old Town, Alexandria and being treated poorly by their sales people, I decided to try David's Bridal. I'll admit, I didn't think I would find anything here. But I was pleasantly surprised by the selection and prices. I didn't want to spend a fortune on my dress, or make my bridesmaids pay a lot for their dresses, because I wanted to spend my money on other things (like open bar and hair & makeup).

I had an appointment for 10am on a Saturday, which I would recommend because by 11am, it was so packed in there and hot, I had to leave. Get there when they open and have the first appointment. Go on the website ahead of time and pick out the styles you like, otherwise you'll be overwhelmed by the selections in the store.

I found my dress instantly, and once I added the veil, a belt, jewelry and shoes, I knew it was done. I also found the bridesmaid dresses which were actually in the "holiday" cocktail dress section, so they were half off! I loved the color (emerald green) and it was October so they were showing them for Christmas, but my wedding wasn't until May so it worked out perfectly. I also didn't need any alterations on my dress, I literally bought it off the rack.

Worst place ever to get a dress. I got my dress June 2013. Love the dress, hate the customer service. First time I went there, it was ok. The lady didnt look at anything that I was interested in, like the styles etc. Finally i put the photo of the dress i was interested in front of her face and told her the price i wanted to stand under. She was fine as far as her personality but she brought me 5 dress way above the cost that i told her to stay under. I managed to try on the dress that i was interested in and loved it. But still unsure if that was the dress. I left and later made another appointment to try on that one dress plus a few others to be sure of the dress. No customer service at all. Another lady (different one) I waited hour after my appointment standing there, NO customers were even there, just me. I went to desk a few times wondering if i will be seen. The lady finally came and went through the dresses and put me in a room then she left. Mmmmm i need help getting them on, she didnt come back until 30mins later. Very annoyed. She helped put on a dress. I went out to see what it looked like and she said ill be right back. Standing there for about 20mins, then when back to my room. No one came until 30 more mins after she left the first time. I was mad. I just wanted the dress off me. She smelled like cigarettes. I left in arguer. I really liked that dress so I decided to go get it on another day. I didnt try it on or anything like that i just went in there to buy it. They looked at me like i was weird for not wanting to try it on. I told them I already have twice and Im done with trying things on there. I told them sizes of dress and things that went with it. Once the dress got back which I do want to say it was fast arriving. I went to get it and the size was wrong, along with they rest of the items, slip etc... What in the world is wrong with this place. I also had it attired there. Bad ordeal as well. They are rude back there in the back.

I did not have a great experience, but I did not have a bad experience.

If you can find someone else to alter your dress, I think that might be best.

I go for very plain, elegant dresses, and because of this, I found my dress here for $350. And it is BEAUTIFUL. I played up the veil a bit because my dress was so plain. My veil is shoulder length tiered, with Swarovski crystals scattered throughout. This cost $250.

All together the alterations were $70.

First, if you're going to DB, schedule an appointment in advance and save your favorites on your online account. Because I did this, the consultant had already pulled the dresses that I wanted to try on.

The consultant was okay, I guess. I knew that I'd be getting a different experience than from a boutique shop, but the woman who helped me didn't even act like she cared about making me happy. She was really pushy about getting me to buy right then and it was clear that all she cared about was making a sale, not whether or not I loved the dress.

I had my alterations done at DB, too. They were more expensive than necessary, but the big problem was that the loop for my bustle broke almost immediately upon using it on my wedding day and I had to constantly pull my dress along with me wherever I walked. Since the woman sewed it on in about five minutes' time at the shop while I waited, I feel like she didn't work very hard on making it secure.

All in all, I'd recommend David's Bridal, but only for people trying to save money on a dress--not for quality of service.

We went to multiple locations trying to find "THE dress". I had all my bridesmaids and my mother with me for this fitting, during which we were paired with a very sweet, but extremely inexperienced staff member (she had been working there for two days). The staff member followed generic David's Bridal protocol, but the store was overpacked and made it nearly impossible to find a dress in a comfortable environment. The reasoning for my low rating however isn't a result of my dress shopping appointment, but for what followed. This David's Bridal sold my information to MULTIPLE scam vendors, along with their own admitted affiliates who harassed me for weeks concerning florists, photographers, etc. even after I'd already informed them that I'd hired elsewhere. I could not believe the sheer volume of phone calls I received stating we'd "won a sweepstakes" or "were eligible for a free gift" that when I did research concerning them, was made aware of their scam nature. I believe it to be a GROSS misuse of customer's trust to do this. I am EXTREMELY thankful that my dress wasn't from this store.
