I finally picked out my dress today and decided to just go for it and buy it since I am getting short on time for delivery and alterations.
I do have a bit of a rant though....
I went to David's Bridal twice before and had a good experience trying on many gowns, but unfortunately today was the opposite. I had an appointment, yet my consultant was busy with at least two other brides and really never helped me. My pregnant sister ended up helping me get into gowns for a final decision.
Then, when I was ready to purchase my consultant told me that I had to buy the gown "off the rack" and that they never allow brides to order new dresses if the gown in the store is in good condition. I knew this was ridiculous, and when I got up to the front of the line I told the woman that I wanted to order a new dress... and it was no problem. So weird.
This made the day kind of a downer because I almost walked out of the store because I was thinking that I might have buy a ratty wedding dress that had been tried on by a hundred girls or get nothing today. Oh, and I read later that I should have received a discount booklet when I purchased my gown and I received... nothing.
Now, I don't expect the "champagne" experience of a boutique from David's Bridal, but I do want to get the correct information and a bit of help. However, the end result will hopefully be great. I ordered a beautiful dress and veil... oh yeah, and an underskirt, but that's not beautiful
I got a ball gown with straps that create a nice "v" neckline and a deep "v" in the back as well. It has pleating at the bodice and a wide band of beading at the waist. I thought I would want strapless, but I love how this dress hides any "back fat" issues that I didn't even know I had until I tried on wedding dresses! Here is a pic of my dress from the website:
Thanks for letting me vent
