My Best Friends Wedding: Part II

Saturday, October 13, 2007

I went with Jonelle this evening after work to pick up her wedding gown. It's absolutely beautiful and she looked stunning! I must add though, (and I mean no offense to anyone if they have ever worked for Davids Bridal) I would never purchase anything from there. Nobody showed us where to go to pick up her dress, nobody offered to help her put it on, they practically vacuumed right around us, left us to put the gown back into the preservation bag on our own, etc. Then, they forgot to give her the jewelery she purchased. Jonelle's daughter (9) Taylor was there too, fumbling with her dress on her own too. At least I was there to help.

I guess I'm just really tired.

I was married once and got my dress from a very old bridal salon in Pittsburgh and they were amazing to me. Really treated me like a princess. That's how a bride to be should be treated. I am just stunned at how inappropriately we were treated. Am I wrong? I wasn't mean or ungrateful towards anyone there but I guess my version of a bridal salon is something with a little more class than a place that makes you walk around by yourself to find what you need. No help was offered. It kinda sucked. At least her dress is paid in full and she doesn't have to do that again.

Thanks again for listening to me rant.

    "HUGS" Sounds like your day was really busy and sorry it was so stressful. The mintue you mentioned David's Bridal, I wasnt surprised when I read the rest. I have a friend who had problems with her wedding dress from there and my daughter has 3 friends whose prom dresses were messed up in some way from there. Your friend was lucky to have you there to help her out.

    Hugs

    You're not wrong! I've never heard of such a thing. Usually they are making the bride feel special & beautiful... helping with the dress & making sure she feels special. What a rude place!! Its unfortunate that our society is becoming more & more like that. You're friend is very lucky to have you!

    I agree that a bride should be treated like a princess. It is sad that custumer service is lacking in so many of todays businesses. But then again it is just a reflection of our culture. People have little courtesy these days it seems. LOL-I guess I should have been born in another time and place.
