Annoyed with David's Bridal alteration dept!

Recommended Posts

Wow, I am glad I saw this thread! I haven't bought my dress yet but there is a DB that is closer to me than other bridal stores so I was going to get my dress there...I might have 2nd thoughts now.

I keep going back & forth about whether to use them for alterations, but the more I hear about their poor customer service the more I think it'd be best to go elsewhere.

I have been searching all day for DB reviews on here and online. I got my dress at DB back in December 2009. I got great customer service there and everyone was so nice. So now I need alterations. Right now I only need a bustle, but I am hoping to lose more weight (at least 15lbs) before the wedding (on 10/22) so I would need it taken in too. I have heard so many bad reviews about DB I don’t know what to do. My cousin got her dress at the same DB I did and they messed up her alterations. I am so worried they are going to mess up my dress, but if they mess it up too bad, they will replace it. BUT I will be need alterations up to the last minute so I don’t have time for them to screw it up! I could always take it to a different DB (there are a lot near me), but they could also screw it up too. I know a local tailor that I have taken a bridesmaid dress too and they did an amazing job. But if I take it there and they mess up my dress I would have to pay for a new dress. UHHH!! I am super stressed about this! I have read so many bad things and it doesn’t seem like there is any good option! I feel like my head is going to explode! fryingpan.gif

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one in this boat.......I got my dress at DB's, I love it, the customer service was good with the purchasing end but when I was talking to the alterations department they were really rude, seemed annoyed to come out to answer my questions.... and suggested I book my first fitting for the beginning of July.......my wedding isn't until the end of November......I don't know but that just seems way too far in advance to me? Especially when I'm trying to tone up for my wedding...... I might look into someone local who can book me in sooner to my wedding day.....

Alterations can be expensive as they can be a LOT of work. Especially if you have to move beading etc. Even with that said, there is no excuse for rudeness!

Another one who got an insane price from DB with the first dress I picked out.  I ended up ordering a knock-off online, and took it to a local seamstress for alterations totaling $85.00.  Definitely find someone local, check Yelp.com for reviews or ask friends for a recommendation.  Oh, and my dress was ready in 2 weeks with one fitting after a week.

i tried to stay away from DB after my friends dress cost 649...then 975 after "alterations".  I couldn't believe that this is how much it costs to raise a hem!  INSANE.  I had my own experience at alfred angelo this weekend. I only went in intending to try on a style as i was going to order the dress through a shop that INCLUDES alterations (and they price match! So im waiting for the next sale at AA to actually finish the purchase)!  Unfortunately i picked a higher price point than i wanted (for the dress), but im happy that i dont have to worry about the added cost of alterations, esp since i've been losing weight!

 

The entire wedding industry is absolutely ridiculously expensive.  I would also suggest to shop around, look at the seamstresses work and maybe even try to find someone word of mouth! Good luck!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
