David's Bridal Complaint - They get You w alterations after they order too big a dress
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- Once I got engaged I went to Davids Bridal and although I have gotten better attention in a reg clothing store, I finally found a dress I liked although way too small in the bust, she had clipped the bust in the back with some sort of plastic clip. The length was correct. She assured me it would be fine in a larger size, the dress came in about 2 months later, way too late to reorder and of course, I had already paid for it. The dress was huge and about 9 inches too long. What happened next was unbelievable, this in Las Vegas in August, my wedding is Sep 6, it is 115 degrees outside, I had to endure, 2 3 hour alteration appointments to somehow make this dress fit, keep in mind, I'm 5 ft 4 inches 111 lbs and a size 34 c bust. Pretty average. There was no air conditioner on both apps, and you had to wear the heels standing on top of two pedestals, like box pedestals for 3 solid hours not moving with nothing to lean on and no rail to hold onto. Also I was in this small room with 3 other brides. They only had a fan. I was so hot I kept thinking I would pass out, I was so dizzy and they did not even have water when I asked for something to drink. When all was said and done and they charged me almost 600 for the alterations, the dress looked horrible, too loose in the bust and just wrong. The dress was only 500 hundred to start with. Now I had a 1,100 dress that looked awful. Truth be told, too late to get another dress, I cancelled my wedding. That is the honest to god truth. If you are on a budget, get the dress, try it on immediately and get it altered elsewhere.
