what brides are saying…

“I walked into David’s planning to buy a totally different dress. When I saw this dress on display, I knew I had to have it! As soon as I tried it on, I was hooked! The dress is very light and comfortable. It’s a little large in the bust for me, I’m pretty average in that department but alterations will fix that. It lays very nice everywhere and doesn’t have too much train. I felt like I could walk comfortably without a lot of fabric tripping me up. It’s a lovely vintage/boho dress and I cannot wait to get married in it!” – Katie Lynn

“I made an appointment with David’s Bridal on a whim. This was the last dress I tried on and even though the sample was the wrong size I knew it was the one! I did have cups added and the straps shortened but all in all the price was incredibly reasonable. I received so many compliments on my wedding day and it fit our rustic brookside venue perfectly. Thank you David’s Bridal!” – Violayne

what brides are saying…

what brides are saying…

“I came in with an idea of what I thought I wanted. This dress was actually everything I thought I didn’t want. I was hung up on strapless and fitted to the body. The consultant helping me asked me many questions as to what I liked and didn’t like about every dress I put on. I was ready to call it a day. She said she had one more she thought I would like based on my likes and dislikes. I knew the moment I put it on it was “the one”! Light weight, plunge front and it has pockets! Yes I said pockets! Paired with a ball gown slip and a beautiful pearl and rhinestone belt they had I felt like a princess!” – IttyBitty

Sheer Lace and Tulle Ball Gown – WG3861, $1,099

what brides are saying…

“This dress is the PERFECT blend of classic, romantic and vintage (all of the things I wanted my dress to be). I didn’t originally think I would pick something that was strapless or ballgown-esque, but it’s so much more flattering than I thought it would be and I think it will fit my outdoor fall, Colorado wedding venue beautifully!!” – Mblan37

“I tried on at least 10 different dresses when I went in the store. Originally had the idea of a slim fitting gown, tried on a few and didn’t like how they looked. So finally my consultant pulled this one (the last gown I tried on) and i fell in love with it. It is a mixture of ball gown and A line and absolutely gorgeous! It fit great and so easy to dance in. I received sooo many compliments on it. The lace detail and sheer bodice made the dress complete, along with the POCKETS! It fit like a glove. It was the perfect dress! I had a great bridal experience at David’s bridal, thanks to my consultant Cassidy!” – Emily

My consultant saved this one for last because she knew how much I liked it, and as soon as I put it on, I knew this was the right dress. The lace detail is gorgeous! I love all the detail of the back. It’s very romantic without being too over the top. It fits in perfectly with my venue (ballroom that used to be a library).

what brides are saying…

“I went into David’s with my mom. We picked out about 4 dresses for me to try on. I had a certain vision in mind and it had to have straps. I put the first dress on and it was pretty just not the one. She said they had just gotten a brand new dress in and she wanted me to try it on (this was back in feb 2017). She said that she thought it would be right up my ally but it was strapless. I agreed to give it a try and almost fell over at how beautiful it was on the hanger and couldn’t wait to try it on. I walked out and was in awe! It was so perfectly gorgeous!! I knew it was the one but I had to try on the other dresses I had picked to make sure. I put it on again and rang that bell! The vintage rose is so beautiful!” – Elle

“I never thought I would pick a blush colored dress for when I got married, but when I tried it on I knew I couldn’t have just a normal white dress. The beading and lace is so beautiful. The train and lace on the bottom with the small rhinestones really make the dress look like it’s sparkling.” – Nattloopez

Sheer Beaded Bodice Organza A-Line Dress – SWG784, $1,199

“Before I started searching for a dress I had a picture in my head of what I wanted my dress to look like. When I saw this dress it was everything I had envisioned and then some. I could not have been more happy with my dress. It was absolutely perfect!” – Sara

“Favorite part of my wedding. Literally. I was sure I was going to have a sleeved dress, so I was scrolling thru DB’s dress selection online saving dresses with sleeves only. This one caught my eye and I thought “wow, I wish I could pull that off.” When we went dress shopping, it was on the mannequin in store and looked SO PRETTY. I knew I had to try it on. It was the 2nd dress I tried and I knew immediately it was the one. I forgot about everything I thought was wrong with me and could only focus on how pretty/flattering the dress was. I couldn’t wait for my husband to see it. It was my favorite detail about the wedding. I was nervous about the blush color, but it was different, beautiful, and memorable. I can’t recommend it enough.” – Hannahmichelle

“I initially went into my appointment looking for an A-line, long sleeved dress for my upcoming winter wedding. But as soon as i walked in, i saw this on a mannequin, and thought “why not, it’s so beautiful i have to.” It was the first dress i tried on, and i cried when i saw myself in it. It hits all the right spots and gives me such an elegant, sexy look. I adore how it hugs my hips and that train is to die for. I added a little belt to mine and it tied it all together. Best purchase I’ve ever made. I am truly in love!” – Gretchen
