Wedding dress hunting ground for real-world brides on a budget. Princesses need not apply..
A chic, sleek boutique, it's not. But those willing to look carefully will likely find a big-time bargain. The staff is helpful and knows the merchandise but doesn't provide extensive one-on-one attention or advice. Stores (particularly on weekends) can be swamped with brides-to-be. David's specializes in beaded satin A-lines and simple lace sheaths that just hit the $500 mark. Most labels are tasteful but of medium-quality: Gloria Vanderbilt, Lady Eleanor, Oleg Cassini and the likes.
Stay far away from all David's Bridal not just the Gunbarrel store. I wish I could have given this store zero stars! The bridesmaid dresses are cheap, poorly crafted, and ill-fitting. When trying on dresses, I chose a size that I was worried would be a tad too small if I gained even a pound. I am so glad I chose the one I did because even after gaining 2 pounds, the bust of the dress is too big and needs to be altered. The sales girl was trying to get me to order a size larger! I can't even imagine what that one would have looked like. My sister chose a dress that fit ok, but gave her a tiny bit of wiggle room. When she got the dress she ordered, she was swimming in the bust of it. To add insult to injury, the zipper of my dress was put in incorrectly and the seams are puckered instead of lying smooth. These are NOT the same dresses we tried on in the store. Perhaps a different batch of Chinese sweat shop workers stitched them? These are some of the poorest quality dresses $135-$145 can buy. Stay away from ANY David's Bridal! If the bride insists on using them, I sincerely pity you.
