A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to go check out the newest David's Bridal that recently opened here in Albuquerque. I will be attending a wedding in about a month and needed to find the perfect dress for the occasion. I actually haven't been to a David's Bridal store in years... 5 years to be exact, since that's when I was out shopping for my own wedding dress. When it comes to finding a special occasion dress the options can sometimes be limited in New Mexico. When I found out that David's Bridal had opened a new store in the Uptown area, I was excited to check it out! I had booked an appointment prior to going in, which I would definitely recommend if you are looking for the perfect dress for any special occasion. When I first walked into the store, I was immediately struck by the chic decor, beautiful hardwood flooring, and gorgeous dresses that were on display. The store definitely has a modern aesthetic that totally set the stage for a very fun and memorable experience.
I had so much fun browsing all of their special occasion dresses, and love that each dress comes in a variety of sizes, ranging from petite to plus. Although there were so many different silhouettes, lengths, styles, and colors to choose from, I pretty much went in to my appointment knowing that I wanted a short dress in a darker color. I found so many gorgeous navy blue dresses, I couldn't wait to start trying them on. I am a sucker for lace, which was perfect because that seemed to be the most popular fabric of choice throughout the store. I had so much fun trying on various styles, and loved the large mirrors throughout the fitting room area. I was even able to try on a few different pairs of shoes before finding the perfect pair to go with my dress. The new David's Bridal store has everything you need for a complete head-to-toe look, including shoes, handbags, and jewelry. Thankfully the dress I picked out fit perfectly, but I loved knowing that there was an expert in-house alterations specialist available if needed.
This gorgeous navy lace dress was by far my favorite, and I knew I couldn't leave without it. I can't wait to show you guys the full look next week, and to wear this gorgeous dress to my friend's wedding soon! If you are an Albuquerque local, be sure to check out the new concept store for all of your wedding dress and formal apparel needs, located at 2100 Louisiana Blvd. NE Albuquerque, NM 87110. You can book an appointment prior to heading to the store to shop, which I would highly recommend, as it can help streamline your shopping experience. If you are not local, you can find one of the 300+ David's Bridal locations throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Puerto Rico, or you can always shop online.
