After thinking I had found "the" dress, on a whim I went to David's Bridal in Wayne today and now "the original" dress has some stiff competition. I honestly didn't realize the quality & variety of dresses that they would have...
Anyway my first question is: can you bargain at a store like David's Bridal? It seems to me that at a chain, the price on the tag is the price you pay.
Secondly, anyone have experiences with the alterations dept @ Wayne's David's Bridal? I have heard that once you purchase a dress there, the experience goes downhill -- horror stories like while they're holding the dress for you, they allow other's to try it on. Who knows if this is true, but regardless, I was just wondering. Similarly, anyone know any places that would do alterations (a seamstress, etc.)?
And lastly - I know the kind of veil I want (ivory mantilla), but honestly that was the one thing at David's in which quality seemed to lack. Anyone know where I can purchase that kind of veil?
Sorry for all the questions.. but thank you in advance for any input and advice!
