    So I went to the Paramus NJ store and had to wait 25 minutes to see the sales lady. That's OK though I'm chill. The first thing the lady (Nuska) asks is when my wedding (of course) and I said Feb. She says 'oh five months' and I said 'no. seven' (this was last month). She starts counting with her fingers in a condescending tone, mocking me. I let it go (I did not like it one bit, but did not think it was convenient to say anything.

    She's helping other people and it's only her and the manager, so I sit around and wait until they have a chance to come back to me. I did not mind. There was one dress that I really liked and I was going by myself so I told her that I wanted to come with my mom, but she lives very far, so it isn't easy. When she's going to check me out I have to wait about 10 minutes (I wanted to return the bra, otherwise I would have just left). She starts beyond-pushing me to order the dress & apply for a DB credit card. I understand it is part of her job so I let it go. Whatever.

    She now calls me about one to two times a week asking me when am I coming with my mom. I told her I don't know, but on the third call I told her that I would call her at my convenience (which I was really planning to do because the dress is nice). She kept calling me asking the same question and I was becomes more impatient every time. The last time she called, two days ago, I was no longer polite. I told her she was so pushy I no longer wanted to deal with her because she was too pushy.


    Would you think they have a way to remind themselves not to call a person after they have asked three times not to be called?


    I would not be surprised if she calls again.

      I found David's Bridal to be really over the top as well.  The sales lady that helped me was great - they just didn't have any dresses that were right for me....


      I tried to be polite and say that I was going to look at other stores and maybe be back.  (I have since ordered a dress from another store.)  Now I get calls at least once a week - maybe I just should have been rude and told them the truth!

        I agree with both when I first looked and tired gowns on just too see that kept calling I ended up going back when my MOH was here and the plan was for both of us to try dresses on together to see how it looks and the sales lady was very rude didnt help my MOH at all ad then when i was finshed she kept trying to get me to order saying well you have to order by a certian date well first of all the dress i really wanted was discounted so i no longer wanted it and then you were very rude i was not gonna order from you and they still called for a few months. I know they want business but thats not the way to get it. And I guess it goes to show you that no matter what state or city their in they are the same.

          I think it depends on the store. I went to David’s Bridal and they were very helpful. Everyone there was so nice. It was what I expected. I picked out a few dress from the catalogue and then the sales woman picked out a few for me. I did buy a dress at my first appointment (so no calls after to buy). But I had to return my first dress (it wasn’t THE dress) and I went back, tried on more dresses and I found THE dress.


          I am VERY nervous about the alterations department. I haven’t heard anything good about it. And they messed up my cousin’s dress almost to the point that she needed a new dress (I am going to the same one). I was going to go to a tailor but if they mess it up they don’t replace it. If DB alters your dress and messes it up they will replace it. As of right now I am only getting a bustle done. I don’t need any other alterations.

            I bought my dress at Alfred Angelo and cannot say enough good things about them. They were not pushy at all. Took me without having an appointment (someone happened to cancel the day I walked in), listened to what I wanted and found me the perfect dress. I tried on hair pieces and corsets. They were not pushy at all trying to sell those items. I highly suggest them.

              I went to DB and they were ok. Not very pushy but the lady mentioned that I need to start looking now since my wedding is in April and it could take 4-5 months. Honestly, I was never going to buy a dress and i don't like to be pressured into buying one. I just went in to try it on to see what I like. I probably will go the knock off route though.

                I think many sales people can be very pushy. I've been to many, many, many places and at the end of the day, they are just trying to make money.  But it definatly helps when you love your sales agent. Makes the whole experience even better.
