What is Discount Bridal Service, Inc® ?
Discount Bridal Service, Inc., is the original and largest "Personal Buying Service" for Brides. In the bridal business since 1970, DBS® introduced its unique and affordable bridal service in 1985. As the originator of the "Personal Buying Service" concept, DBS® makes it possible for brides nationwide to purchase first-quality designer wedding gowns, veils, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses, mother-of-the-bride/groom gowns, and special occasion dresses at 20 - 40% off suggested retail prices. You and your entire wedding party can save hundreds of dollars on your bridal apparel!
How Does DBS® Work?
Once you decide on your wedding gown or attendants' dresses, simply provide us with the manufacturer's name, style number and color. You can also tell us the page number and issue date of any national bridal magazine or Internet address. We will verify the style and give you our discounted quote of 20 - 40% off! When you are ready we will order the dresses on your behalf and have them shipped directly to you or any place you designate. If needed, your order of multiple dresses can be shipped to different addresses.
What makes DBS® unique from other discount retailers in the bridal industry?
DBS® is the ONLY personal buying service with a national network of trained representatives, recognized for our commitment to customer service. Everything is specially ordered NEW, just for you. We do not sell sample dresses or off-the-rack dresses.
How is DBS® able to sell at such low prices?
Elegant Gowns carries no inventory of gowns, which permits us to keep our costs down and we are able to pass those savings on to you, without sacrificing service! All merchandise is special ordered for each bridal customer on an individual basis.
Where do the dresses come from?
We place your order with the same bridal manufacturers and resources as any other legitimate bridal retailer. We sell only new, first-quality designer merchandise direct from credible bridal manufacturers.
Which manufacturers and designers are available?
Most nationally advertised gowns and dresses are available through DBS®. We do not represent manufacturers whose standards and commitments to the consumer are questionable or have proven to be unreliable.
When can I expect to receive my bridal order?
The average estimated delivery time of most bridal manufacturers through Discount Bridal Service, Inc. is 12 to 18 weeks. However, some can range anywhere from as quickly as 6 weeks to as long as 30 weeks. It is important to inquire about the particular manufacturer you have chosen as delivery times will vary. We prefer to quote a conservative delivery as we would much rather send perfect garments in a comfortable time frame than risk quoting a date that is unrealistic. To ensure adequate delivery time of your merchandise, we recommend placing your order with us as soon as you have made a final decision. If necessary, we can place a "rush order" whenever possible, depending on the manufacturer, so if your wedding date is soon, please still inquire!
How do I pay for the merchandise?
Elegant Gowns accepts checks as well as Visa and MasterCard. When ordering dresses for members of your bridal party, we can accept separate payments from each attendant. All merchandise must be paid in full at the time you place your order, as it will be shipped directly to you, UPS insured.
What happens if I discover a problem with the merchandise?
All merchandise is received at our Service Center for inspection before we ship to you. Each and every garment goes through a 25 Point Inspection Process. However, should you discover a problem, simply contact us, and the necessary steps will be taken to make it right for you. We believe that our customers deserve the very best that the bridal market can provide. As our valued customer, we are committed to your complete satisfaction.
Can I return my gown or cancel my order?
As with any bridal shop, your dress is custom made for you and your order cannot be canceled for any reason. All sales are final and cannot be returned or exchanged. Before signing your written order, it is very important to make sure that all information (style number, color, and size) are correct.
What about alterations?
Alterations are almost always necessary to get a properly fitted wedding gown. You need to find a competent and experienced bridal seamstress in your area to do your alterations. Remember, alteration charges are always additional no matter where you buy your gown. In fact, you will likely save more money when dealing with a seamstress that is not affiliated with a bridal shop. Elegant Gowns can recommend competent and experienced bridal seamstresses in Northern California. All necessary alterations are independent of the DBS® personal buying service. Therefore, we do not provide quotes for alterations.
