The Bridal Warehouse

Ahem, so I am recanting my position on the bridal warehouse stores….or at least the one I visited today. I have been avoiding these types of stores because, from what I found browsing the Internet, I couldn’t find a dress that felt unique and didn’t look cheap.  However, I was lured into a David’s Bridal today by their one hundred dollar dress sale.  I brought my friend Michelle with me to protect me from pushy salespeople who might talk me into a really expensive dress.  I’m an easy target.

However, I was pleasantly surprised by our experience. My girlfriend and I were able to talk our time sorting through dresses, and besides one salesman who flirted a tad too much, everyone left us alone until I was ready to try on a couple gowns. When we were ready, I was escorted by a bridal consultant to the changing rooms.  She patiently helped me get in and out of every delicate dress, which would have been a confusing nightmare if I had tried on my own.  She also noted the different styles I liked and found similar dresses that I had missed.  I’m really happy to have had this extra help.

I tried about six of seven dresses and really loved three of them.  I feel pretty lucky since most of the brides I’ve known had to search a long time for their perfect dress.  While the dresses aren’t as cheap as I had hoped, they are still extremely affordable.  I’ll be happy knowing that I bought a dress that I feel extremely beautiful in, but one that I didn’t have to take out a credit card for.

If you would like to see some of the dresses I tried on during my David’s Bridal Adventure, visit here.

Thanks Michelle for being my partner in crime today.

The first of many beautiful dresses.
