Ok some please tell me why David's Bridal is just an aweful place? The first time I had any interaction with them was 4 years ago. I went with a friend for her to hunt for a dress for a formal. They were rude and didn't want to help even though she was willing to spend $200-$300 that night for a dress. The formal was on Saturday we went on a Thursday. Then I went to another David's in Pineville (near Charlotte) they were rude to us and told us they didn't have time to help us etc. So after driving 1 hour we were pretty much kicked out. I vowed I wouldn't ever buy anything from David's. So I got my dress from Darlynn's in Monroe (excellent customer service) and my BM dresses I found at a local store in Greenville, Afforable Elegance (again excellent customer service).
Well I was asked to be in my friend's wedding and she has gone to DB route. So I went to DB with her to look for a wedding & BM dress a few months ago. Things were fine decent customer service.
I went back today to get fitted since she has made a decision on the dress. I also was inquiring on shoes which I knew was a long shot but I was going to ask. A clearance selection another one of her BMs found at her local DB. But we can pick out own shoes so its not a big deal that they didn't have it. But instead of saying No we don't have any they were like OOOOH they were clearanced LOOOONNNNGGG ago. And went on and on about how they don't make those shoes. I could have just taken a No we don't for an answer. The person that fitted me was really really nice. Nothing against her; now her manager....
I was saying that I couldn't buy my dress today but I was going to come back within the next month to order. My friend is getting married mid-July and her local DB told her to order BM dresses by Early Feb. This manager was like OOOHHH NOOO you shouldn't wait that long we could discontiune that dress by then.....my thoughts were WTF? you just discontinue dresses for the hell of it whenever you like? really lady? My FI was like b*tch under his breathe I couldn't help but chuckle. She was like by the time your friend picked this dress it may be gone by Feb.
She went on this rant about its way to late to order dresses etc and I was like well ok but I can't pay for it today.
So all in all I give David's two thumbs down!!!
I just got so fustrated with the way they treat their customers. Or in this case potential customer!!!
I think its crazy they just discontinue dresses every few months.
Now your thoughts...
