Appt w/ Olga... ladies don't wait!!

Ok, so sometimes I think, I have 11 months till my wedding I have plenty of time.  Then other days it's like, holly cow... it's only 11 months till my wedding.

So I thought yesterday I would go ahead and give Olga a call.  I already had it set that it didn't matter how far I had to drive, I wanted her to alter my dress.  (she is the best after all)  I told her my wedding date was May 21st, 2011 and I hope I wasn't calling to soon.  she said and I quote "mercy no... i am already booking for next year, and this year is pretty much booked"  Her first week-end date to see me and get a first look at the dress is October 16th.  (not to scare anyone if your wedding is this year and you want to use Olga but have not booked her yet.  She is so sweet and would work around the clock to schedule a bride)  Just wanted to pass a little note that she is busy and stays booked.  

I am sooo excited that Olga will be working on my dress, and I just want to say to all brides, it's NEVER to early.  there is a reason certain people/suppliers are book far in advance.  so if you know what you want, I say book-it-Dan-O!!  No need to wait because time will fly!

sorry for the long post!

    I booked her 8 months in advance as well.  She does fill up very quickly.

    Thanks for the info, I'll have to give her a call soon so I'm at least on her schedule for early next year.  I'm so excited to work with her!

    Yeah. . I had a miracle booking with her. My dress came in a month before our wedding and needed some fixing. Thank God she was able to squeeze me in :o)

    She's worth EVERY dime!

    Yeah, she sure does seem to fill up fast...when I called her in April, she wasn't sure if she could see me because she had 17 other brides the same week she scheduled me into!!  Talk about a busy lady!  I can't wait to meet her (which isn't until September) because she sounded wonderful on the phone, and everyone always raves about her!

    Beka...Ninja?? Huh? Is that what you call her, or an actual nickname?  I'm confused.

    I booked mine without a dress.  I didn't find my dress until almost 4 months after I booked her.  :)

    thanks for the heads up!! I haven't even tried on any dresses yet but I wan't her to alter mine whenever I do. My wedding isn't until September and I hadn't planned on getting it before then but I might need to!

    I booked Olga after I had chosen a dress, but I hadn't even ordered it yet.  I brought her some pictures of it and had her measure me to make sure I ordered the correct size.  It's never too early!

    quick question is your wedding September of this year?

    If it is, and you would like to order a dress you may need to start shopping soon, the Wait time for my dress is 4-6 months....

    I know David's bridal isn't that long, and you can rush most dresses, but if you haven't started looking, you might want to...

    Good to know!  My wedding is next April.  I plan on calling her the end of this month.  Will she quote prices over the phone?  I just want to know ball park what I'll be spending for a french bustle, cups sewn in, and maybe hem.

    Thanks!

    hmz819, (sorry don't remember you name) I am sure she can give you some kind of idea, but until she looks at the dress and can see what she is working with, I don't think she will be able to give you an accurate price quote.  That is why I have an appointment with her on October 16th.  She is only going to look at the dress and see what all might need to be done.  I wont get my final alteration done until April of next year. 

    Also, go ahead and call her now...I wouldn't wait.

    good luck.
