Good news- It is a wonderful idea. The dress I got was beautiful, it wasn't exactly what I'd designed, but it was beautiful. It fit perfectly. Everyone I dealt with was very nice from the beginning. The price was pretty reasonable for a custom made dress. And, they worked with me even though I was just before the 90 day mark. Bad news- This was my wedding dress. I was supposed to have it a week before the wedding AT THE LATEST. They never called to tell me it was going to be late. I had to call them when I was supposed to have my fitting. I didn't even see it until 24 hours before the wedding and it wasn't even finished. I got the finished product two and a half hours before I walked down the aisle. I know it's a little detail, but it didn't have the tag with designed by me on it either. Small, but I was really excited about that part, too. Then, they tried to make it sound like I was getting a $100 discount (which wouldn't have been enough for all the hassle and having to buy a backup dress 48 hours before the wedding). It wasn't a discount. I made a last minute change that meant they had to do probably 60%-70% less embroidery. That was the $100, but he didn't tell me that until I asked flat out. I guess he didn't think I would remember. So, for all the stress I got nothing but an 'I'm sorry, it's not our fault.' Like I said, they were very nice, but I also didn't give them a reason not to be. I may be a little too low maintenance for my own good...

Went in to look for a Marine Corps ball dress and my wedding dress. I'm on a massive budget and didn't plan on leaving with anything, just wanted to see what they had. I was completely surprised. Alyssa helped me out and was absolutely fantastic! She saw exactly what I was looking for and didn't dismiss me because of my small budget (which has happened everywhere I've gone so far). I not only found a dress, I found THREE. One ball and two wedding. I couldn't decide and the prices were obnoxiously reasonable. So I got them both. I got all three for a fraction of the price I was expecting for one. I'm coming back here for every occasion. I'm bringing my wedding party back here to find their dresses. SOOOOOO many options. I really can't say enough good things about this place and Alyssa.
I brought my daughter in all the way from Shreveport, La. We were looking for a presentation dress for Homecoming court. The entire store just had this way of making you feel like you are the ONLY customer in the store. Keep in mind this was a Saturday and the store was PACKED. The customer service there is top notch. We had gone to a similar dress shop down the street before going into WhatchmaCallit and they didn't even greet us or cared when we left after 5 minutes of being ignored. Really stupid on their part because I had an unlimited budget to work with. We found the dress of her dreams. They were so helpful and so accommodating! I WILL BE COMING BACK FOR EVERY EVENT FROM NOW ON!!
