I went to a DB in Cape Coral, FL when I was visiting my mother in Feb. I had a decent experience here. The consultant I worked with was extremely busy. She was helping me and a couple of other girls. I was a little disappointed that I didn't get more of her attention. However, I ended up liking my dress the longer I stayed in it, so I guess maybe it was a good thing she was busy. When I asked about the dress bustle she brought me right to the inhouse seamstress and they did a mock bustle for my dress. I was able to get a feel for walking around in the dress. It was amazing and the determining factor for purchasing the dress.
I went to a DB in Albany/Colonie NY to look for bridesmaid dresses. HORRIBLE!!! The consultant that worked with me was rude and not helpful at all!!!! We felt like we were bothering her. I didn't end of purchasing dresses because the dress we picked didn't come in the color we wanted. We waited for our consultant to return so we could let her know. We waited 25 minutes and she didn't return. My bridesmaids and I left the store and I am not thinking anyone was aware of the fact we were no longer there...we didn't see ANYONE on the way out. So...I am now looking for a place to get my wedding dress altered.
