But I am glad you found your dress its awesome! and like scuba, I am gladd you had a good experience at DB because i did not lol...we actualyl stopped in there after the 1st store just to see what they had, we walk in i seriously felt like i was in the twilight zone, the woman at the welcome center was like giving me whiplash with her swaying her head side to side as she said hi, she asked me when our wedding is i said march she said that month passed already, then asked if i knew my groom's name my mom and i just looked at eachother I said I should hope so?!! She just laughed and she wasnt young, i'm talking like 50's but still a dingbat.
The sales lady 1st showed me their mag, asked me what i like which actually i didnt like a thing from it (i'm picky..one on of those people that has no idea what they want but when I see it i'll know kind of thing) then directed me to my size and said look here, and was almost insulted thinking like how could i not like a thing from their magazine and was giving serious attitude, sooo while she left me to "look" i told the bobble doll up in the front we are leaving..and I think that was the beginning and end of DB bridal for me. lol.

They sent me an online survey after I bought my dress & I said that while I had a good experience I've known too many others, nation-wide, who have had awful ones. I also said they seriously need to spend more resources hiring professional people who like to help women find their gowns and who like their jobs.
As far as Macy's, it may be worth a trip. Honestly I felt like they don't have all that many dresses (many many of the same type), but it makes going around their showroom pretty quick & easy. I'm sure people have found & loved their dresses from Macy's; they just had nothing like what I was going for (simple, non-poofy). But even if you hate everything there it's a good learning experience cuz if nothing else it'll give you ideas about what you don't like. Also, just thought of this, but maybe a different Macy's would carry a different designer? I went to the one at herald sq & they only had 1 (demetrios?).

Yeah, let me know about your experiences w/ Macys & Saks. You might also try RK bridal on 39th. They have a ton of dresses and you don't need an appt to go try on - just try to go on a weekday.
