David's Bridal Complaint - Very Disappointed with David's Bridal
WINSTON SALEM, NORTH CAROLINA -- I was extremely disappointed with David's Bridal. I first entered their store in January 2009 looking for a modest wedding dress. One with sleeves, and a high neckline. I was informed that they did not carry modest dresses...not ONE dress with sleeves, however, we could order sleeves and have them added to the dress. I chose a $99 dress and asked could sleeves be added. They said certainly. I asked the cost, and was told the sleeves would cost $60 and then there would be a $60 charge to put the sleeves in. I thought that sounded reasonable...that would mean I would have $220 in my wedding gown...that's not bad. So I bought the dress and had them order sleeves. To make a long story short, I ended up spending over $400 on the dress. There were so many hidden fees that they did not tell me about. And then to make matters worse, the employees at Davids Bridal acted like I was crazy because I wanted my dress modest and didn't want to show everything... I got the dress home after the last fitting and realized the seamstress had not sewn everything properly and I had to do some fix-up work on it myself, even after paying over $400 for her to fix it! I was extremely aggrievated! Also, when you buy a dress from David's Bridal you are supposed to get a free steaming to use whenever you want. I told them I wanted to use mine right before my wedding, but when I came for my last fitting the lady informed me they did my free steaming when they were completed with the work on the dress. The bad thing is the dress was MUCH more wrinkled AFTER the so-called steaming than it was ever before. So a word of warning about David's Bridal to all you folks out there, and especially to those of you who are looking to be modest on your wedding day...my advice would be to go to some modest wedding dress website and order from there, DON"T GET DAVID"S BRIDAL TO MAKE ONE MODEST FOR YOU! They'll do a half-way job, charge you a big price and make fun of you while doing it!
