I think David's Bridal is a great place to look for Bridemaid dresses because they have so many different colors, styles and sizes to choose from. I couldn't buy my dresses from them because at the time they didn't carry chocolate brown. However, all of my girls went and tried on dresses there to find a style that worked for everyone. We went on a weeknight and the place was fairly empty and the service was great. I did try on Bridal gowns at David's too. Again, I went on a weeknight and there weren't very many people there. The person who assisted me wasn't attentive at all, which was disappointing. I liked a couple of their gowns, but I recommend a more personalized shop for your bridal gown. If you are looking for a really affordable gown though, they do have great sales. If you go to shop make sure and have an appointment first and really the weeknights are the time to go. When I've gone with friends on a weekend it is absolutely crazy with brides running everywhere.
