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 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)

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 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 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 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.

They have always been absolutely understanding and worked with me in any situation! They have always made a way for me to get my dresses, and they have been so sweet and kind and made me feel so cared for! I will always speak amazing of this David’s bridal! I’d only come here!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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 !

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 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.
