David's "We Hate Children" Bridal

I really think they should rename the store to this.

One of my best friends from grade school is getting married this summer and my beautiful, adorable daughter is the flower girl. Tell me this is not exciting for a 5 year old. She talks about it endlessly and practices her walk at least once a day (she really needs to work on it twice a day, no really, she walks soooo slowly and with her head looking up...no idea why). Anyway, we have been planning this little trip to David's bridal with my friend for about 3 months. The day arrived and off we went. We walked into the store all giddy with excitement and not one person even looks in our direction. There were plenty of workers milling around, but not one came up to us. So we finally found our way to the little dresses and pick out a few to try on. This was really the whole reason for the trip. Oh the anticipation. Grace was on her way to one of the dressing rooms and I ASK the lady, "can she try these on?" Like, hello, a little help here. The lady says, "sure, but she cannot get on the platform area." What? That's the whole purpose: get the dress on, get on the little platform, twirl around etc.,etc. My friend says, "it's gonna be pretty hard to keep her off that!" The lady in an unpleasant voice: "Mmmm, sorry, those are reserved for our brides." You mean all 2 of them in there! You mean all those overweight, horsey faced "brides". Sorry, I know I'm rude, but PULEEZE!!!!!!! She's 5!! So Grace proceeds to try the dresses on and look at herself in the wall mirror by the storage room and the the lady walks by and says in a surly, sarcastic voice, "Oh aren't you soooo pretty." I am not even kidding. They should put a sign on the front door that says:

"We kill little girls dreams."

And no, we did not buy the dress. I wouldn't give them one of my red cents!

Bitches! Give me a break they are a cheap chain of duplicated and mostly outdated pieces!
Let the girl have some fun! I could see if you went in on a REALLY busy saturday! Glad you took your business elsewhere!

Why didn't you tell me that when we talked? That is ridiculous! It is very exciting that she gets to be a flower girl, though, I mean- imagine what must be going through her mind as to what this job will entail. It's huge! So sweet. -Camille

yea, Wade put, "call and flare David's bridal" on his list of things to do today. He was pissed! I told him it wasn't even worth the time...I'll just tell everyone I know not to go there!

I don't know why you were shocked, have you not heard their very annoying "you'll love David's Bridal" theme song? Any place that has to try and convince you that you are going to "LOVE" it with an annoying jingle can't be good. Go back in and take Peanut. Let her do her business right on their exclusive bridal platforms. That'll show em!

Write a letter to the manager and then to the head of the DB chain. Seriously, that kind of rudeness should not be let go. I hate people like that but I love to write scathing letters.
