I had an absolutely incredible stylist, Jamie C., who assisted me in finding the perfect dress. Without her I don’t believe I could have found the one! She had a fabulous personality that really made me feel like a true princess in my dress. Highly recommend going here (ask for her! She’s amazing)

A++ rating for my experience! I was warmly greeted right as I walked through the door and every moment after that the staff was attentive to every single one of my needs throughout the entire process. The appointment was on-time and run incredibly smoothly/professionally. Brittany was the consultant that I got paired with for my appointment, and I am so pleased about the match! She did a great job paying attention to my (mixed/unsure) vision for my gown, but also getting creative with me and proposing options I may not have thought to try. She had perfect, honest feedback for every gown I tried on, I appreciated that. Brittany carried herself with patience and understanding, and also had fun with the experience! I was a little lost at the beginning with what I was looking for, but she took that and really ran with it. If you are unsure of what you're looking for like I was, no worries! They are equipped to really help you figure that out. Bonus: They have a cute little tradition at the end if you "say yes to the dress". I won't give it away, but it truly puts a unique and special touch on the experience :) Overall, I highly recommend the Fayetteville Road (Renaissance Center) David's Bridal location in Durham, NC to anyone in the area looking at purchasing a bridal gown. Great experience, great staff, and an absolutely beautiful outfit for my wedding day!

I cannot sing the praises of Olga in the alterations department enough! I loved my dress, but I really wanted buttons down the back rather than a corset back. Olga executed exactly what I wanted FLAWLESSLY and went above and beyond my expectations. She took her time on my hem and bustle as well and made sure that it was absolutely perfect. Her design overall was better than I could have ever expected. I recommend EVERY bride to see Olga and the wonderful alterations department in this store. Thank you for helping to make my dress and my day perfect!

The lady who helped me was Sasha. She did an amazing job. I had no idea what I wanted but she did an amazing job getting dresses that looked amazing and complemented me. At the end the first dress was what I took. She was very helpful and nice! I definitely recommend going here!

I made an appointment for wedding dress shopping and had Lulu help me. She was very sweet and helpful! I felt like the range of wedding dresses was a little bit smaller than expected but with that being said I ended up finding a few that I liked!

Olga in the alterations department did a fantastic job hemming my dress, replacing cups and creating a bustle. She created a much more difficult bustle to preserve the silhouette of my dress and took care to hide stitches in the seams. She also sewed a brooch from my great grandmother’s dress to my belt and took amazing care making sure the fragile piece was centered. Thank you, Olga for making me feel amazing!

It was very quick and the lady that helped us was amazing! She was patient and put things together to make the look so much better! I would highly recommend going to them if you’re looking for the wedding dress of your dreams!

I had a great experience at David’s Bridal - Sasha was fantastic, she was kind and helped me choose the right dress. She was super sweet to my family and I and made the shopping experience a breeze! She helped me find a great dress on a budget that I love! I would definitely recommend.

I worked with the store manager, Kathy -- she was WONDERFUL. I had an emergency to where I needed a last minute back-up dress a month before my wedding. Kathy's attention to detail and care was exactly what I needed. She was quick to understand what I was looking for and brought me several dresses that matched my style. When dresses didn't fit, she was able to help troubleshoot how to make the dress work OR she would bring a dress that would fit me even better! Kathy was so patient, kind, and genuine. She was a true blessing to work! HIGHLY recommend making an appointment with Kathy if she is available. It really was a great experience.

David's Bridal in South Durham, NC, was the first place I went to look for a wedding dress and my stylist was Sasha. I was originally thinking I may just find a general style that I like that fits my vision and body type, but ended up finding 'the one' after only 3 dresses! Sasha was incredible!! I came with my mom and her friend, who are both Deaf, and Sasha was sensitive to include them despite the communication barriers and was very patient. I was indecisive but had a vague general vision and she was able to pull dresses that incorporated aspects of what I wanted. After trying on two dresses, I said I wanted to combine certain aspects of the first and second together and she came back with the PERFECT dress! She put on the veil and the tears came. She was right there with the tissues and took pictures for us. I felt she was vital part of the experience and hugged her on the way out. The entire staff, from the moment I walked in and received my complementary bag full of discounts, to the moment I walked out, I felt they really cared to help me find exactly what I was looking for.

I had a really good experience with Kathy the manager. I had a set budget and she gave me many options. Kathy was also really patient since I had to bring my little ones with me. She helped me find the dress that was in my budget, fit perfect, and was the style that I’ve Always wanted. Thank you!

My experience at David's Bridal today was awesome! I worked with Jenn in Raleigh/Durham's store, and she was absolutely INCREDIBLE. She was so friendly, and was also quick in helping me try on dresses, and knew exactly what she was doing. I had a dress shopping experience that was the opposite of this, and she really showed me and my party how the job is meant to be done! My sisters and I picked out several dresses ourselves to try on, but when I showed her a picture of what I liked, she instantly knew a dress in the store that fit my photo. And sure enough, when I tried that dress on, I LOVED it and said yes! Yet, after these, she continued to be even more incredible! She pulled out accessories on her own to show me, and I fell in love with them! She even pulled out the shoes I ended up buying! It seemed like she just knew exactly what I wanted and needed. I stayed within my budget and found my stunning dress thanks to her for only $650. The staff at this store were all so friendly and a part of me wants to find my way back just to enjoy the experience all over again!

My experience with David's Bridal was good. It was my first visit to this location and for any dress shopping! Brittany was my sales associate and she was very helpful and considerate to my taste and pulling additional dresses based on my likes and dislikes of what I had chosen. The reason why I didn't give five stars is because I arrived at my appointment on time, I had to wait about 10 minutes before I met with Brittany. Then I was told that I have a strict cut off at an hour and half later even though I waited for Brittany to tend to me as she was assisting another bride. This was mentioned multiple times during the appointment, but I was ready to try on next dresses and felt I didn't take too much of her time. There were often times I was waiting for the sales rep to visit me after trying on dresses. I completely understand the rules of appointment times, but the customers should not have to sacrifice their appointment time with another customer if they're prompt and arrived on time. If the store was understaffed I should have been accommodated for the time of which wasn't solely focused on me the entire appointment. Otherwise, great experience!

I found the perfect wedding dress here after only trying on 3 dresses! The staff were so helpful, knowing where to pin the fabric to make sure I had the best fit. They even had tissues on standby when I teared up looking in the mirror! I am returning to get my bridesmaid dresses next week!

I recently purchased my wedding dress from David's Bridal, I loved the dress selection they had. The staff were patient, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I am so grateful to the staff for all of their help. Since my wedding party does live in other states, I am happy this store has multiple locations available.

To be quite honest, I had no plans on visiting David’s bridal. I’ve always felt them to be overrated and truly only went because my mom wanted to. Lo and behold, my consultant Sasha found a dress I never would have chosen for myself. It brought my mom and sister to tears and ultimately me. Sasha saw my vision and helped bring it to life, accessories and all!

Nice customer service, I decided my dress in the first appointment! Lawanda offered different and useful option/combination to give an awesome overall look. She even asked the alteration lady to help me get better idea for the alteration visit. Delanie, the manager wrote down notes for alteration with details, very thoughtful folks! In addition, other staffs also offer suggestions/ideals when they stopping by.

We had a wonderful experience getting fitted and selecting bridesmaids dresses. Tracie was so helpful and patient. David’s Bridal has the largest selection of sizes and styles in store and ready to try on - it makes the process much easier.

I went in to see if there was anything that I'd like better than a dress I already tried on from an online wedding dress retailer. David's Bridal's selection in my budget ($500) was fairly small and I didn't find anything I really liked. Many of the less expensive dresses felt dated, rather than just being simpler than the others. Tina (the stylist who worked with me) deserves five stars though; she was very friendly, patient, and respectful/not judgmental of my budget. She gave me ideas on how certain aspects that didn't love about the dresses could be addressed through alterations, accessories, etc., and I didn't feel pressured to buy.

I had a lot of fun. My stylist, Kevina was very sweet and helpful. The sales manager, Kathy was more than willing to go the extra mile to make sure I was happy. I just wish they had a larger selection of the type of dress I was looking for. I have a follow-up appointment soon and I am feeling hopeful that these ladies will help me find the perfect dress for me.

INSIDER TIP: When making an appointment at this location... ASK FOR LENORA. My sister, mother and niece were in today to find mother-of-the-bride and flower girl outfits. (I had purchased my dress elsewhere - but needed shoes and other accessories.) The customer service we received from Lenora was top-notch. Aside from the fact that she was highly familiar with the stock and made suggestions that helped guide the process... she was simply a joy to be around. Can't thank her enough.

My experience was great!! Julie did my first alterations appointment and was just a joy to work with! She made it an enjoyable visit! I knew everything was going to come out perfect! When I went to pick up the dress Paula and Karen did awesome showing is how the bustle works and made sure everything was perfect! 10/10 experience!

Best experience ever. Made me and my daughter feel so comfortable. Alexandra actually found the perfect prom dress for my daughter. The entire staff were so helpful and supportive! Also, the price of dress was very reasonable for such a beautiful dress. Come here to this location first before going anywhere else.

It was a wonderful experience. I explained exactly what I was wanting and within just trying on 3 dresses I found THE one! Getting in and out of them was so easy. And feeling so beautiful and everyone cheering as I rang my bell made it feel like an experience right out of a movie. It was amazing.

The staff (Sasha in particular) were fantastic today while helping us find bridesmaid dresses. The Covid-19 precautionary measures were clearly labeled and thorough but didn’t affect our shopping. Even though we could only try on a limited amount of dresses, Sasha was attentive in showing us other styles in the store and online. This was by far the best experience I’ve personally had at any David’s Bridal. Keep up the good work !

My experience was fantastic. I walked in that door completely unsure of what to do, what to ask for, or how this was supposed to operate, and by the end of the day I had a wedding dress I was completely in love with. Ericka was fantastic. She listened to every word I said and found dresses that I loved, even though I came in with no precedent images of any kind. I just kind of prattled on, and she found everything that I wanted and even put me in things I didn't think I would like, but really ended up loving. Prices were fantastic, help was great, and it was such a comfortable atmosphere, even for someone like me who HATES being the center of attention and getting help like this. Great experience, and I can't wait to wear my dress!

I bought my wedding dress from a different David's Bridal, but I live near this one. I needed alterations done on my dress, so it made sense to make an appointment. I was greeted by Paula. She is fantastic! She walked me through the whole process, helped me in and out of my dress, asked me how I felt in my dress rather than telling me how I looked in my dress, great conversation. I could go on! I left with confidence that Paula will take great care of my dress and will make it look even more beautiful!

All of the staff members at the Durham David's Bridal store were absolutely AMAZING to work with!! They have done a phenomenal job implementing public health and safety measures for COVID-19 that made us feel safe during our appointment. The process was seamless and so much fun! My wedding is only 7 weeks away and they are doing so much to accommodate that and have my dress ready to go for my day. I worked with Sasha specifically and she was wonderful! The rest of the staff gave wonderful input, and I even left with a list of venues to look into for our big celebration next year! Thanks so much for a wonderful experience! I am so excited for my dress fitting and to wear this beautiful dress on the best day of my life!

We had a very negative experience at another David’s Bridal store in Greensboro. However, this Durham location was very friendly and accommodating! Spoke with Ariana to make our appointment and she was very kind and helpful with our situation (which is not an uncommon situation at all) which another David’s bridal store would not help with at all and was extremely rude about. Sasha was our consultant today and she was awesome and made our experience perfect!! Very satisfied with this location. Thanks y’all!

I visited David’s Bridal (Durham location) on Saturday, May 30th, 2020. I had a great time and was luckily able to decide on a wedding dress! Alexandria and Bethany were both amazing and assisted me in finding the perfect dress for me as well as making sure I had good options to choose from. I was able to find a dress, a veil, and a jeweled belt all in under an hours time. Ultimately I ordered a dress online and tried on a similar dress in-store, as they did not have the one i wanted in a sample size to try on in person, but all is well! Large location, great selection, and in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, everyone was at their best behavior. I was so glad that they were open and able to help me pick out my dress for my wedding this October. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone.

My mom, sister and I went to find my dress today, and we had a great experience! I didn't know exactly what I wanted, but Sasha (my consultant) was ready to help. She was great at asking me what I liked and didn't like about each dress to ultimately help me find what I truly wanted. David's Bridal and Sasha made everything easy and fun!

this was my first time to try on the bridal dress and I had no idea what exactly I want. Alexandra was very helpful and asked me a lot of questions to help me figure out what I want in my imagination and picked a few for me to try on. she also worked with alteration department to see what they can do to meet my expectation. It was very nice experience.

I honestly didn’t want to go to David’s Bridal. I’ve been in several weddings and it was never a great experience but let me tell you about today....it was great! My consultant was new but she did an amazing job! Cathy came in and graced us with her wisdom and expertise! I told her what I wanted and that was all it took! First dress Cathy brought was “the one”! Thank you guys for being awesome!!!

Sasha is amazing! I would highly recommend working with her to anyone looking for a wedding dress. I worked with her to find my dress for my original wedding plan. After COVID-19, we decided to do an 8 person beach wedding and I needed a new dress. She remembered me after many months and helped me find another perfect dress for my sunrise beach ceremony! I will still use my first dress for a vow renewal and reception, once its safe to have large gatherings again. I never thought I would need two dresses but I couldn't be happier.

Completing the Profile prior to our appointment made the experience seamless. Sasha knew exactly the style and price range we were interested in. Sasha chose the gowns my daughter tried on and Sasha nailed it. My daughter wanted a cathedral veil and of course Sasha was spot on. The sash and tiara complimented the gown perfectly. By the time a gown was chosen, I think every employee was standing around saying how stunning she looked. Thank you Sasha for your professionalism, knowledge, patience and kindness. You made this event everything a bride dreams of when choosing their wedding gown. Thank you so much Sasha!❤️

My experience with David’s Bridal was exquisite! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first walked in to the store, but I was very thrilled to find the one dress that was perfect for me! I was helped by Sasha and Jada, and they were both such sweethearts! They assisted me with making sure they found what I was looking for in a dress, and provided me with enough info and background on each dress I tried on. Overall, very impressed and would definitely recommend looking into David’s Bridal as an option for purchasing a wedding dress, especially if you’re looking for ones that are more affordable but still absolutely stunning!

I had the best experience shopping with my mom here for my wedding dress! I had never tried on a wedding dress before, but I had done some research on what I thought I would like. I told stylist Sasha about what I liked and from there she picked three absolutely gorgeous dresses, I honestly have never seen myself look so good! She really listened to what I loved and disliked about dresses number 1 and 2 and when she brought out the third one it was like she knew exactly what I had pictured in my head! I am over the moon in love with my dress and forever thankful Sasha was there to help me!

I can not say enough GREAT things about Sasha. She was extremely patient with me. She gave constructed criticism which was greatly appreciated. We narrowed it down to 3 dresses before my husband came and gave his opinion. She never made me feel pressured to buy the most expensive one, actually I never felt pressured to buy any of them. She made me feel very relaxed. Occasion Wedding...Mother of the Groom

We came in desperate because of COVID our wedding was sent into a tailspin. Thankfully we called for appointments for veil finding and alterations to a bridal gown we purchased earlier from David's. The assigned staff person was great. She was helpful and patient. The alterations staff member, Shante, I think was amazing with what she did in less than four days! We rate this experience "12 out of 10"! Thank you!

Hopefully once Covids calmed down I can come back at a later day so I can get dresses for everyone in my renewal ceremony(its going to be a bit bigger than the quick wedding we are having now so we can invite others when it's safe) . -Thanks for the amazing treatment!

They were able to set up an appointment for me same day. They had someone onsite who could determine which alterations could be done. We found the perfect dress quickly with no stress. Everyone was very nice and they explained the process for getting the dress ordered and then altered. The person helping us was experienced and listened to what I liked. Overall, if you want a simple stress free dress shopping experience, they are perfect.

Shalonda was a great representative. First off, I loved her customer service skill. She kept that smile and her tone was perfect. No matter how many times I sent her to get the right size bra, she just did it with ease. She was very helpful and she made the experience one of the best experiences throughout this journey. It wasn't hard to choose either because she narrowed things down for me so that I wouldn't stress myself out to much. Very welcoming environment. I would recommend others to visit David's Bridal.

I went to David’s this morning to find my dream dress, and the fourth one was it! Alexandra and Kathy (stylist and manager, respectively) were amazing to work with. They absolutely know what they’re doing, and they helped me envision what I could expect with a correctly sized dress after alterations and with the right accessories. What a great experience. Will come back and do alterations here as well. They keep everything well documented, which is also a plus.

Being a bride during the pandemic has not been an easy thing. The accommodation, genuine attention, and care that I received was outstanding! Lakeisha’s assistance in finding the perfect dress for my day was more than I could’ve asked for! I’ve been in customer service/care for a long time, in it’s many different departments - Lakeisha is someone who holds all of its requirements to a to true level of excellence! If you’re looking for a special dress for a special day and need someone who LISTENS to you, is REAL, GENUINE, but can also make the experience fun and (let’s be honest) less nerve racking - LAKEISHA IS YOUR GIRL!

I have been to both this David’s Bridal & the one in Raleigh. The experiences between the two were completely night & day!! Andrew at the Durham location was so incredibly wonderful. Because I had an awful experience at the Raleigh location, I wanted to try on a few more dresses (even though I had already purchased one) and he was happy to help me try on whatever else caught my eye. I then decided to keep the original I got and wanted to try on accessories. Andrew brought over several suggestions and never got annoyed by me asking to see a few more things. He even gave me tips on having real flowers in my hair/vs fake ones on my wedding day, which was so helpful!! I also want to say that the manager, Kathy, was extremely kind & helpful & very understanding. We have had a LOT of issues at the Raleigh David’s Bridal, but shopping at the Durham DB was such a corrective experience. When my mom and I left she said “THIS is what it should have been like the first time.” Thank you so much Andrew & Kathy!! We will definitely be back.

What an awesome experience! I saw a dress online I loved. I called ahead to make sure they had the dress in store. Thank God they did (I’m attending a wedding in 2 days and needed a dress badly) When I arrived the dress was up front and they secured a dressing room for me. The dress fit perfect. I was in and out in less than 30min with awesome customer service!! Thanks Dominique and Brittany.

Several months later, I return to David's with a dress I did not purchase from them for accessories and alterations. Julie was the BEST! She helped me with shoes, belt, slip/crinoline, proper length, and more. She was an absolute delight. I highly recommend the expert tailoring at David's whether you purchase your gown there or not! I had two great experiences with Amari and Alexandra - searching for wedding dresses and flower girl dresses. Both are very professional, good listeners, and most helpful. I highly recommend David's Bridal and these two women as your stylist.

They were great! So nice and caring. Everyone working there today ask if we needed anything, if we were comfortable, can we get you a chair. This was a great experience. My daughter picked out a dress and they fixed her right up with accessories. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone to prepare for their unforgettable special day.

Today I had the pleasure of going to David’s Bridal and my consultant Portia was simply AMAZING. I was running late and she was so patient and understanding. She made me feel like an absolute princess. She was very knowledgeable and took the time to help me decide on the right dress. I’m extremely happy with my bridesmaids dress. I do recommend this David’s Bridal location and especially my consultant Portia!

In full transparency I was hesitant to go to David’s Bridal for my wedding dress and when I got there I wasn’t impressed with the first two employees I came in contact with. But I’m so glad I stayed and gave it a chance— this is all due to Amanda. She was the only employee that had such a great energy and didn’t seem lethargic; she knew what she was talking about, she was easy to talk too and overall made my experience such a joy. I left that day with the most amazing dress and my outlook on David’s Bridal has completely changed. Thank you Amanda!

I dropped my wedding gown off for alterations. When I returned for pickup, I noticed pink stains dotting the top of my gown. When I made the alterations person aware of the stains she casually said the guy who steamed by gown forgot to take the tag off of it which resulted in the stains. She said he got most of the pink stains out. I told her this was not acceptable. There were no stains on my gown when I dropped it off. She took the gown to the back and blotched it with a solution in attempts of cleaning my gown. After it was obvious that this was not going to work, I asked to speak to the store manager. She basically apologized and said they got most of the stains off. I again told her this was not acceptable. She then stated the alterations manager would be in tomorrow and I would need to speak to her. My wedding is less than 2 weeks ago. I paid a rush fee to have these alterations completed sooner. Not to have my beautiful gown ruined. I am completely disgusted! This should not happen. And if by chance it does happen I should have been notified right away. But they seemed to be trying to sweep it under the rug, had I not mentioned it they weren’t going to mention it to me. Updated review: Paula - the alteration’s manager called me the very next day. She was extremely empathetic and assured me she would personally ensure my gown was spotless and ready for pickup with a few days. She delivered on her promise! While I’m still not pleased about my gown being stained originally, I do appreciate Paula’s sense of urgency and desire to fix it right away.

I had a great experience - I was able to show some of the dresses I had saved on my phone to one of the ladies who helped me and try those on first. Then the other lady who helped me brought out some other dresses that would also flatter my body type and fit my style. When I chose my dress, it was a magical feeling when I got to ring the bell and 'say yes to the dress.' I also appreciated the additional styling (adding a veil and a tiara), and ended up getting the tiara! I don't remember the names of the two wonderful ladies who helped me, but they worked the evening of 4/8.

I arrived at 545pm, without an appointment, on a Wednesday. The nice ladies up front let me know that I could browse and do a fitting if one of the 6 oclock appointments cancelled. Bailey, another associate, listened to the description of what I wanted, made a few suggestions, and after a 6pm did cancel, helped me with my dress. She and the other associate, and seamstress were all so helpful and informed. I think my experience was greatly enhanced by coming at a low traffic time of day. The seamstress recommended a size down,, which David's didn't have in a stock in ivory. I took a chance on getting the same dress in white, one size down, and plan to receive it in a week or so!

I truly experienced a princess type of help when going to David’s bridal in Durham North Carolina. When I called that same day they were able to get me into be seen and getting their seamstresses to help me within that same day as well, which they said is rear to happen. They made me feel as thought it was my wedding day with all the attention. There were plenty of beautiful gowns to look at and pick from. Allison who was assigned to me was on the key and Karen the seamstress as well as a male seamen (sorry I didn’t get his name, but I tell you, he knew her thing too) was on the ball! I truly can’t say enough about all of staff working together to meet my needs. Thank you David Bridal of Durham North Carolina you guys are the best!

I went in for an appointment, not really sure if I would be finding the perfect dress or not. Keller was my stylist, and was awesome from the very beginning. She helped us find dresses, and was more than happy to pull any dress that my mom and I would’ve liked to see me try. She was an absolute sweetheart and complimented me in all the dresses I tried on. Lenora was the closing manager, so she helped as well. You could definitely tell she had a lot of fun getting me “all jacked up”, complete with small bouquet and all. I did end up finding “the one”, and I cried my eyes out. My mom said that Keller also teared up, as well. You can absolutely tell that she truly loves what she does. Lenora went above and beyond, helping me find the perfect veil as well as a small hair comb barrette. I was the last appointment of the evening, so Keller and Lenora were able to let go and have fun with it, just as my mom and I did. Even as it neared closing time, Keller even helped my mom find her Mother of the Bride dress, and she is so happy with it. I could go on and on, but the short of it is that Keller and Lenora made my experience so much fun and so memorable. They are such sweethearts, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking to find their special dress for their special day. Thank you so much, ladies!

Awesome visit today! I was excited but insecure about my visit today just because I am not the perfect “hourglass skinny” bride shape. Then I met my wonderful stylist Portia. She showed me a few things she found first based upon what I originally thought I wanted & then also suggested to try on different styles “just in case.” When I needed different sizes, she was 2 steps ahead of the game & just handed me what I needed. The first dress I tried on was the “one” (and a different style that she suggested I try on 😉)! I felt amazing, comfortable, & beautiful. She was very sweet & knowledgeable. I had a great visit!

This past weekend I went to David's Bridal for the first time to pick my wedding dress and a few bridesmaid dresses. We got the earliest appointment times and had such a great time. The staff was very friendly and ready to help. I said YES TO THE DRESS and so did a few of my bridesmaids. We will definitely be back with my other bridesmaids soon. TOTALLY RECOMMEND!

If I could give Kathy, the fitting specialist, 10 stars I would!Kathy was absolutely amazing! She knew exactly what we were looking for and had the perfect dress ready for my daughter to try on. Once we made our selection, Kathy explained the ordering process, made our alteration appointment and reminded us of everything we needed to do to prepare for the final fitting. Kathy was so professional and efficient!

April 20 was my first visit to the DB Durham location; Bethany was my stylist and she was amazing! She was so patient with me as I tried on multiple (6-8?) dresses, answering all my questions I threw at her. We narrowed it down to 2, writing down both dresses, before we departed the store. Fast forward to May 10, I went to DB in Fayetteville. I had found a dress that was being discontinued (size 4) that I thought would be ‘the one’ after trying it on but I was alone I didn’t want to say yes to the dress without a second opinion. After getting in my car to drive to Burlington, I immediately called the Durham location to see if they had the dress and if I could squeeze in on May 11 to come in and try on this dress. Not only did they have the same dress in a 6, but were able to accommodate my schedule and squeeze me in. I was able to have my cousin and aunt with me and Latoya was so accommodating! She helped me in and out of the dress, had a seamstress on hand to answer my questions, and let me borrow their bouquet to get the total vision. I found my dress and absolutely love it and the Durham staff that helped me to find the ‘one’! I rang the bell loud and clear; I have found and said yes to the dress! Thank you so much!

My daughter in law to be and I started with David's bridal for her wedding dress. We had Sasha for our stylist. She was fabulous!! She was super upbeat and so very helpful. She listened to what we were looking for and kept showing us different ideas that fit with our vision. Sasha chose head and waist accessories for her to try, giving us lots of different ideas. Because this was the first place we went to we later went to several others. We came back to David's and asked for Sasha because she was so fantastic to work with and the selection and prices were good. The other employees were also very pleasant. We left very happy! Thank you Sasha for helping make this occasion so special!

I had a great experience at this David's Bridal. My fiance and I decided pretty last second (like, less than 60 days) to throw a party and get married! Sasha at this location helped me find the perfect dress that would also be available within my deadline. She was very helpful and walked me through every step of ordering the dress I fell in love with and setting up an appointment to get alterations done in-store. My experience with their alterations department was SO much more than I was expecting. Again, the seamstresses had about 20 days to shorten, hem, and bustle my dress as well as take in the sleeves and shoulders, fix the bust, and add lace appliques that I wanted to add to the back. My initial visit went pretty good, though my pick-up date kept getting pushed back (luckily I knew my timeline was pretty unreasonable and I am very laid-back so this didn't stress me out too much). This led to me picking up my dress the Monday before my Saturday wedding and working with Olga in the alterations department. I was honestly ready to just take my dress home even though the bust was still a little lumpy and wonky. Olga literally told me no and said that my dress should be perfect for my wedding day. Boy, did I need to hear that! She ended up ripping out the sewn-in cups and boning, essentially restructuring the entire bodice, in order to get the bust to fit right. She worked hard over the next two days, having me come back very near closing time Wednesday night to do my final fitting. Then my dress was PERFECT! I can't thank the entire David's Bridal team, especially Olga, enough for all their help, support, and flexibility. My wedding was everything I wanted and I felt beautiful in my dress thanks to them :)

Always a helpful and considerate staff. I made a lot of requests, and the ladies were always happy to find what I needed. In the end, I found my perfect dress, which still needed some distinct changes, which the alterations department were more than able to tackle. Their skill and patience made the fittings smooth and enjoyable. With both groups of staff, my shopping experience was better than I expected, and made the work up to my wedding one of the fun parts of planning. I highly recommend this location of Davids Bridal to all engaged to be married individuals!

The staff at David’s bridal in Durham are absolutely incredible. My mom and I had a great experience with all of the ladies who helped us along the way. 4 dress fittings later, I left with the wedding dress of my dreams and it fitting me BEAUTIFULLY. Huge thanks to Keri who originally helped me find this dress a year ago (she picked it out!), Paula for her patience and kindness and Olga for saving the day and helping it to fit perfectly in the end. Such sweet and kind souls and professionalism you can’t beat. THANK YOU AGAIN!!!💕

I had a great experience. Everyone was wonderful. My consultant Heather was amazing. She was friendly, kind, and attentive. I was so happy to be able to get my head to toe look in one place. They have such beautiful and unique gowns and accessories, and I was very pleased with the variety, quality, and prices.
