I recommend you go there during the week since it wont be as busy. Check out the catalog and narrow down what styles you want to try on or it will become very overwhelming...

David's Bridal of Springfield, VA is just about what you'd expect for a major chain/budget wedding dress store. Most people go with DB for the convenience of their being at least one in every city, DB also has a huge variety of styles/brands, and they provide discounts for you and the wedding party and are partnered with Men's Wearhouse. If you want higher catered service, go to a smaller boutique, as it is hit or miss here.

With this store in particular, some sales reps are great, some are awful and over the top or too tired to show enthusiasm. They are always busy as they take way too many appointments and still accept walk-ins. They only offer alterations appointments on 3 days of the week, which is very inconvenient, but In and Khane (seamstress-alterations specialists) make the scheduling challenge worthwhile as they are great at what they do and priced well.

We got my bridesmaids dresses from here. They were great and willing to work with me a little. They however had one person helping three different clients, so that was kinda annoying when we wanted to move on to the next dress and she was helping a bride.

When I first went to David’s Bridal in Springfield, I was blown away by the kindness and how helpful everyone was. I purchased my dress there at a great price of $500, the staff members helping me find the dress were beyond wonderful! There was nothing but laugher and happy tears that day. However, we were told that I would be able to exchange the dress for a smaller size 6+ months down there road because I was undergoing weight loss. Come to find out, dresses are only exchangeable within 90 days of the purchase date. I understand that and I feel that’s a normal store policy, but we were told several times by staff members that we could exchange it no matter what 6+ months down the road as long as it hasn’t been worn. I got my dress 9 months before the wedding, so to deal with this mess 2.5 months before the wedding was stressful. I had gone down a size and the dress I had purchased was falling off of me. After contacting the corporate office, I was able to exchange my dress.
Unfortunately, I still needed alterations after downsizing my dress. The real drama and stress began with the alterations department. I wanted to go through David’s because if they messed up, I would be guaranteed a new dress free of charge. The manager was rude and unhelpful when I would ask questions. It’s my wedding day, I’m far from Bridezilla, I wanted my dress to look flattering and I wanted to make sure I was understanding every policy before signing due to the mayhem I experience with the size exchange. Needless to say, I got my alterations done and they were great but one of the staff members cut their finger and bled all over the back of my dress while I was in it! She did clean it off, but that’s so unsanitary and nerve wrecking! When I got my dress back, it caused me to have bruises by my arm pits and all over my back because they put Stays in there to make the dress stay up. Since I got married in VA Beach, I had asked if the complimentary steaming could take place down there.

I went into my dress appointment not really knowing what I wanted but I definitely knew what I didn't want! The ladies there were super helpful and knew what would be best for my body type. The dress came in much quicker than originally projected too!

My only suggestion for David's Bridal is to provide garment bags. My dress came in a plastic bag (like the ones the dry cleaners use), and I had to purchase a real garment bag!

The bridesmaid dress I selected was on the clearance rack at Davids Bridal. I definitely suggest this, especially if you have a smaller bridal party. The cost of the dress was originally $180, but was on clearance for $59.99. The Davids Bridal in Springfield was where I originally found it, and so I called other Davids Bridals across the US (and Puerto Rico) to get the remaining dresses. They will ship directly to your home for an extra $15, so each girl ended up spending only $75. I would definitely recommend this tactic to save the girls money. My only issues with Davids Bridal is that that dont keep their database updated well enough, so one store says that there is a size 2 in Wisconsin and that store will have already sold it but the database wasnt updated yet. This happened on multiple occasions. My other issue is that their dresses are made overseas where there is less quality control, so a size 4 could really be a size 2 or a size 6. This only happened in one case with my bridesmaids, but Ive heard about this problem from other brides, as well.

I had three bridesmaids, all of various sizes. I took my maid of honor there to choose a dress for the girls. There was a very wide selection of styles with lots of different colors. We were greeted by a salesperson shortly after entering the store. The one thing I liked was this salesperson was not too pushy and let us look around on our own but was easily accessible to answer questions when we had them. We chose a one-piece apple red, satin A-line dress with some embroidery in the front and an envelope back. I also bought my wedding shoes from here. The shoes were a bit expensive for the short amount of time I wore them. I wore them for the ceremony, pictures, and dinner and first dancebut changed into slippers for dancing. I give Davids a 4 because everything was available at a decent price and suited my needs, but nothing really wowed me.

Davids Bridal was a disaster for my girls dresses. It took me a long time to find dresses that would flatter my girls differing shapes and sizes from size 4 to size 20. I did find the dresses but then when I ordered the sizes for the girls they all came in multiple sizes too big. There is no excuse for this. The charts for sizes should be all that you need but in my case our dresses which were $120 became close to $220 each after the multiple alterations that had to be done. I know that they do mass quantities and they are considered quick and easy but you really get what you pay for.

Picking out the dress at Davids Bridal was a lot of fun and the assistants were very helpful. They let me try on as many dresses as I wanted and take photos (something most other salons did not allow). They had a large variety of styles and sizes and they also had ivory dresses, not just white ones. I went with an ivory dress actually. They also had veils and bras to try on with the dress which was very helpful. I bought both there as well. They helped me to arrange my alterations appointment and were just overall very helpful. I bought my dress at Davids Bridal and had discounts for the bridesmaids dresses there so my two bridesmaids ended up getting their dresses at Davids. I wish they had more of a style selection but the colors were great. I wanted my bridesmaids to get something they may wear again instead of just another dress for the wedding. Unfortunately they really didnt have the most gorgeous dresses available and my bridesmaids will never wear the dress again probably. The staff was very helpful though and the dresses came in when they said they would. They were moderately priced although I wish they were a little cheaper since the dress was only for a one-time occasion. The alterations lady at Davids Bridal was very rude to me and refused to cut out the bottom of the dress as I wanted (I wanted the puffy stuff gone and she refused). She said she would do it after I paid, which I did. I came back weeks later and she had not cut out the puffy stuff because she said it would make the dress fall flat as I had a pickup dress style. I ended up cutting it out at the reception because it was itchy and hot. Other than that experience, they did a great job fitting the dress exactly to my body and I felt great wearing it.

I tried to walk in at David's and the lady was so snotty, she said I needed an appointment. Shrugging this experience off, I did end up making an appointment. I saw a couple dresses there I liked, but honestly the girls are so uppity there that I couldn't spend my money in a place like that.

David's bridal is a nice place to look for wedding dresses because they offer such a large variety of dresses. You can also try the dresses on in your exact size so you can really see what they look like on. The staff and the process of dress shopping is not as nice though. The staff often overbooks appointments which leaves some brides on their own to find dresses. David's also sells the dresses right off the floor. The dress I picked was ordered so I did not have to worry about it being dirty but most of the time the brides take their dress home with them that day. Since people are trying on those dresses; they are often pretty dirty. David's also sells their dresses at a great price and often has sales on top of that. David's Bridal was a great place to find bridesmaid dresses. Since they offer such a large variety in allowed me to really look for the color and style of dress I wanted. David's also has the bridesmaid dresses in all different sizes so my girls were able to try on their dresses in their size. Which saved them on alterations. They also had the dresses ordered and available for the girls way before the wedding date. David's also offers shoes to match which can be dyed to match the dresses or left as silver. The costs for the bridesmaids dresses were very reasonable. All of my bridesmaids were happy with the dresses they received and options that were offered to them.

I visited to two separate David's Bridal stores (Ann Arbor, MI and Wilmington, DE) thinking my experience would different. I wasn't very impressed with the staff in either location. I felt they really didn't listen to what I said about the type of dress I was wanted.

I actually brought in a specific list of dresses I really wanted to try on and instead of getting those, they would come back with completely different dresses that were much more expensive and not at all what I was looking for. They would then insist that I try on and it took me about three rounds of trying on dresses that I had no interest in just to get to the dresses from the list.


In the end, I actually did end up buying my dress from their online store and it's perfect! The quality of the dress is great. I was able to find exactly what I wanted on my own... If you're pretty confident about your sizing/ordering online, it might be a good way to go with David's Bridal.
