Re: David's Bridal Refuses to Deliver

Not to say that your complaint isn't valid but RUN from this company. You've gotten a tast of how they do business. PLEASE listen to the advice that's already been posted. Planning a wedding is hard enough--regardless of the number of guests, whether it's formal or whatever. I went low-key at my own, Eddie Bauer outlet dress, wildflowers and a pig roast, and even my mom shoved a giant cup of beer (local brew--mmmmm) in my hand and told me to get lost while they set up. Stress city--just the whole family thing, the desire to have everyone have a good time. Feh. Don't add your dress to the list of stressors. You're supposed to feel great on your wedding day--and not unhappy with what you're wearing.
So, please consider yourself lucky that you're only out $3. I have heard *nothing* but horrible things about the way they do business. Seriously, no hyperbole. I had a friend who was screwed out of plenty of dough--she didn't have much to start with but figured that if she wanted bridesmaids the least she could do is pick up the tab for the dresses--and she got NOTHING from David's. Literally.
No dresses, no one to contact who was worth a damn--just a mess. So, she had to break it to us (bridesmaid and MOH) that she couldn't help us out (we were totally understanding--I mean she was great to us--no bridezilla) becasue she just didn't have the cash. Not a problem--I mean how many brides pay for the dresses in the first place????
So, we went to a local place, found some really reasonably priced dresses (it was after prom and there were some pretty dresses on sale--some were actually classy enough for an adult to wear) that had no butt bows or made us look like giant, shiny Hershey's kisses and were able to have them tailored locally--properly. It really was worth spending what amounted to about $30 extra bucks for the service.
I really hope you have a great wedding but now you know one vendor you want to avoid.
