My first dress looking experience

So I went dress looking today (I won't call it shopping because I knew I wasn't buying yet). I went to two shops David's Bridal and another little privately owned shop. The first shop I went to was a blast. I was a little hesistant first because I was going alone but the girl put me at total ease and told me that a lot of brides come in alone. The whole time I was there we laughed and giggled like little girls I seriously thought I had a friend with me. I was a little disappointed because I was a size bigger than I thought I would be but the girl told me not to worry dresses run small (I still need to lose weight) I tried on dress after dress after dress and fell in love with 3. Unfortunately, I couldn't sneak any pics of the dresses due to the fact that she was in the room the whole time I had each dress on then helped me take it off. The next stop was David's Bridal, I didn't really want to get a dress there but I figured I would look. Well, needless to say even if I had found my dream dress there is no way I would buy a dress from that store. The receptionist was rude, she talked about personal matters in front of me. They only had one consultant on apparently even though I saw AT LEAST 10 girls standing around doing nothing. I had to go through and find my own dresses to try on but I couldn't pull them out which was no big deal except that there were so many dresses they were overwhelming and hard to shift through. I finally got into a dressing room and had to struggle into all of the dresses alone then everytime I walked out there was no one to be found. All in all it was an interesting experience and I found some dresses I love one that I never thought I would want. So without further ado here are some pics of two of the dresses, I can't find the third(my favorite) online which the girls warned me I might not but I'll keep looking.

Oh wow- I'm in love with the 1st one! But then again, I'm all about unique dresses. Would be curious to see the 3rd if you can find it!


Eeeeee! How exciting!

Oh I love them both!  Really like the 2nd one!  And yeah I abhor David's Bridal.  They are so awful there.  I've yet to have a good experience.  Definitely stick with smaller privately owned boutiques!

I'm glad you had fun at the first shop.  Sorry your David's experience was a bust, they are really hit or miss with stuff.

it's an essence dress very 1940-1950's vintage with cap sleeves she said it's part of there exclusive collection and is most likely not on their website I can't remember the name of it. I'll keep looking for it though.

great dresses!


Sorry your DB experience was so bad- you should write a review of that store. I have gone into several different stores and had really great service- maybe your store just needs a kick in the rear to get them back in line.

My sister had the same experience at David's Bridal when she was dress shopping two years ago.  I will never buy dresses there.

Beautiful dresses! What a difficult choice!


Sorry about your experience at David's Bridal. I had the opposite experience--exceptional service with a lady who made me feel really comfortable at David's but at the small boutiques, some people were rude, some were pushy, and none seemed to care less other than making a sale.

 Yes, both are gorgeous but I think the first one is very romantic.
