My first post on this board (I normally lurk
). I went dress shopping for the first time last night and it was pretty dissappointing. I went to David's Bridal and when I booked the appointment they told me to go online and find some 'favorites' to show the consultant when I got there. I found lots in my size and price range online (and some were online exclusives but many were in stores too). The consultant didn't even LOOK at my favorites.
I tried on 5 dresses (all over my budget). I did actually end up like 2 but I'm upset online made it look like there'd be lots of tions for my budget and size. The consultant said right in the beginning my 'size and budget would really limit you'.
It looks like I'll be shopping online for my dress which is scary in an of itself. I don't plan on searching for custom made ones overseas or anything (i've heard horror stories).
Any advice on where to look? Is there anywhere I can actually try these dresses on? I guess in wedding dresses I'm an 18 (jeans are 14 or 16 usually) or 16W- I tired both sizes on and they seemed to work. And I really want to keep my price around $300. Has anyone bought a DB dress onine without trying it on?
Sorry for the rant. Thank you ladies!
