The Short Version: For over 60 years, David’s Bridal has been in the business of dressing brides and prom goers for their big days. From apparel to accessories to gifts and decorations, David’s Bridal provides everything needed to make your event special.

Kyle and Amy met at a punk rock show when they were 14. The crowd got a bit wild that night, leaving Kyle with a bloody nose.
“I was the girl hero who cleaned off his face and got ice for his sore nose,” Amy said.
This proved to be the beginning of a friendship that lasted into their college years. Going out for dinner one night, Amy began getting vibes from Kyle that he might want their bond to grow into something more than friendship — and she was right.
“I said, ‘This isn’t a date. I don’t feel that way about you,’” Amy told Kyle. “Without missing a beat, he looked at me, winked, and said, ‘Don’t worry. You will.’”
This time Kyle was right. Amy and Kyle’s relationship blossomed into a thriving romance that eventually led to a proposal.
“Our marriage was celebrated with bubbly champagne, good friends, great music, and the perfect dress,” Amy said. “As a lover of polka dots, the David’s Bridal tea length, dotted, organza wedding gown was literally the only dress I tried on. It had polka dots and pockets! It was bridal dress love at first sight.”
Stories of love and perfect dresses, like Amy’s, abound at David’s Bridal.

While David’s Bridal offers a great selection of gowns perfect for any occasion, the name is, of course, synonymous with outfitting you for your wedding day. The site and its stores provide a centralized location brides and bridesmaids can turn to for all their apparel needs.
Brides can start the important task of picking out their dresses by checking out wedding theme ideas or the current Look Books to get a sense of exactly what kind of gowns they are looking for, be it whimsical, classic, or designer. The site is also easily navigable by price, size, and style, so you don’t have to spend valuable time searching through dresses not right for you.
If you aren’t quite sure what sort of dress you’re looking for, take the Wedding Dress Quiz to discover the perfect one for you. Answer a few quick questions about body type, silhouette preference, your bridal style, and must-haves and voila! Your stylist recommendations are ready for your waiting eyes. There’s also a bridesmaid version to help you choose the best options for your wedding party.

Bridesmaid dresses feature tons of colors and options as well as junior and maternity sizes.
After you have a few ideas of what you want, you can make an appointment with a bridal stylist for a personalized experience. The stylist will not only pull the styles you’re looking for but can also make recommendations as to other options, shapewear, and accessories for your ideal look. Your personalized stylist will also help you coordinate alterations with David’s Bridal alteration experts. These stylists are there to help you every step of the way as you create your perfect wedding day ensemble.
Don’t let the name fool you, David’s Bridal also has an impressive array of prom dresses. Prom goers can browse dresses by silhouette, price, color, and designer to create the perfect look.

David’s Bridal has a page just for prom inspiration that showcases all of this year’s trends. You and some friends can host a prom fashion show to see the latest fashions and get advice from a stylist. Each student who attends can save up to $50 on her prom dress. The store frequently runs other promotions, including an opportunity to win a prom dress.
David’s Bridal carries a ton of products to accessorize your outfit. A wide range of veil, hair accessory, jewelry, wrap, lingerie, and handbag selections will help you put the final touches on your dress.
Continue your one-stop shopping in David’s Bridal shoe department, which offers almost every type you can imagine — from dyeable shoes in many styles to flip flops and peep toes. David’s Bridal also gives great advice, like “Five Shoes Every Bride Needs,” to ensure you don’t forget a key pair of shoes in the midst of wedding planning.
Speaking of planning, you can get all your other wedding goodies in the Gift section of David’s Bridal. Pick up your bridesmaid kimonos for the wedding morning, your “hottest couple” matches, and rustic wedding décor all in one spot. Take care of all of the stationery — from save-the-dates to thank you cards — in the Stationery section. There’s no need to run all over town and manage multiple vendors — it can all be found at David’s Bridal.
David’s Bridal has an Inspiration & Guidance section on the site as a resource brides can use to learn ways to make their wedding day even more memorable. There, authors cover every possible worry you may ever have. For example, brides concerned about seating can pull up a chair and read “Wedding Reception Seating Solutions.”
If you’re looking for something beyond wine and hors d’oeuvres for your engagement party, “Engagement Party Ideas” may be the perfect five-minute read for you to get your imagination flowing. Maybe you’re just attending a wedding and want to look your best; David’s Bridal provides multiple articles on what to wear to a wedding. The site also offers information on prom and other special events so you’re the most enviable person on the dance floor (it cannot, however, help you with dance moves).
Whether your signature fashion is polka dots, as it was for Amy, or an elegant, classic design, David’s Bridal is sure to have the perfect dress for you. Amy and her guests won’t soon forget her wedding day, and Amy still looks back with fond memories of her gown.
“There was lots of laughter and love, and I didn’t stop twirling in my dress until early the next morning,” she said. “I’ve spent over half my life with this man, and I can’t imagine a better start to all the rest.”
