BM Dress shopping: Dallas or Frisco?

I am hoping that some of you can give me your suggestion! 

I am going BM dress shopping with some of my girls in a few weeks.  I got my dress at AA so I definitely want to go there.  Now I am trying to decide between two different areas....

Frisco: Alfred Angelo, David's Bridal, and Demitrios Bridal or....

Dallas: Alfred Angelo, David's Bridal and Terry Costa. 

Any pros/cons of which area to go to?  I got my dress at AA in Frisco which is a somewhat small store (in my opinion) but I have never been to the one in Dallas.  I want to avoid running around all day and would rather stay in the same general area. 

Thanks so much for any guidance!

    When we went MOB dress shopping, the Dallas DB and Terry Costa were close to one another and we hit both of them.  Not sure where the AA is in relation to them.

    I went on a weeknight to Terry Costa and the sales rep was really helpful in finding me a bridal gown. Her name was Ava and she was able to find me something in my budget.
    For the MOH dress, we went to the AA in Frisco because it is closer to where she lives. The selection was limited and it took us a while to find something.
    I hope this helps.

    When I was dress shopping for my MOH's wedding, we did Frisco.  She got her dress from Demitrios, then we hit up the DB and AA to try on BM dresses.  I liked how close everything was.

    For my wedding, my girls tried on and ordered dresses from Terry Costa which is where I purchased my dress.  I don't know how close a DB or AA is to Terry Costa

    Like Stephie said, the Dallas DB and Terry Costa are very close. 

    I've been in TC once on a non-busy day and I just didn't like it.  That's my personal opinion though.  My MOH loved her dress and we got it from DB.  It had pockets.

    Yes.  I went late on a Friday night (8 PMish) and had very good service.  Plus I think it may be a little bigger than some of the others.

    We got our BM dresses there.  They were OK.  We showed up without an appointment both times and it was fine.  It's a busy store though.  If I had it to do over, I would not have went the DB route.

    The dress I really have my heart set on is at DB. So I know will be going there. I didn't realize there was a AA @Firewheel. I may check it out this weekend along with the venues we're visiting. Thanks ladies.

    I got my dress and veil at the AA at Firewheel.  I had a very nice experience.  I was at Firewheel last weekend and saw some beautiful dresses in the window!  :)
