Did you go on a Saturday?  I went shopping to look on a Saturday, and it was a zoo.  The store was PACKED.  I had to wait a while to get a consultant, but once I did, I had her undivided attention.  Every time I’ve called to ask a question, she’s called me back within one or two hours.  

Once my dress came in, I went on a week day, and there were maybe 5 other people in the store.  I had 3 consultants all to myself. My first fitting is in a few weeks, so hopefully my subsequent encounters will go as well as the first two.

I’m sorry your experience with them wasn’t great. 🙁

I loved my consultant, Lisa.  She was very vested in my having a good experience there, and I always had my bridesmaids ask for her too.  I think it depends on who you get to help you when you go in.  Anyone who wants to have Lisa help them, she’s off on Tuesdays, so any other day would work (except Saturdays, of course – avoid that place like the plague on a Saturday).

I had a great consultant. Her name was LaShon and she was very patient with me and willing to help me with anything! I told her my dress budget and since the dress I chose was a little over budget, she offered my crinoline and bustle to be done for free (about $130 in freebies). I also recommend Ruth…she helped me once with LaShon wasn’t available. I only went on weekdays by the way right when they would open to avoid crowds. The only time I had a long wait was when I went on Monday morning for my first alteration.

It sucks that there are so many bad experiences there…I’m just glad that I lucked out. :
