A wedding is one of the happiest and let’s face it – most stressful time of a bride’s life! One million decisions are wrapped into a small time frame, from choosing the venue to the rings. The romance of a wedding soon begins to dim as a bride begins planning the main event.

At Olga’s Bridal Boutique we realize what a demanding time planning a wedding can be for a bride. But we also recognize one of the most fun and treasured decisions a bride gets to make is choosing THE DRESS!!!

Over the past 19 years Olga’s Bridal Boutique has become a staple in the South Tampa bridal community. It is the beloved boutique of a mother daughter team. Prior to opening the boutique, Olga worked as a buyer for a major department store. And her daughter Michele was a representative for a cosmetics firm.

We are the perfect boutique to find the perfect dress for your perfect day. Read less

I was searching everywhere in Orlando for a beautiful dress in my budget. When I couldn't find it, I started calling stores outside of Orlando and came across Olga's. Beth answered and helped me more over the phone than people did in person. She found me a beautiful dress in my price range. Today I drove all the way there to meet with her and see the dress in person. I found my dress! Thank you, Beth!

My experience at Olga's Bridal Boutique was awesome! My consultant was Beth Golino. Beth was so helpful and attentive to my bridal needs. She was personable, and went above and beyond my expectations. The care I received as a consumer was unprecedented compared to that of the other bridal shops in the Tampa bay area. Beth gave me wonderful advice on picking the right dress for my body type. I would definitely recommend Olga's Bridal Boutique. For a small boutique there is a wide variety of beautiful and modern dresses , there is no way to leave the boutique unsatisfied.

The entire staff at Olga's bridal is by far the most amazing you will find. I visited several bridal stores all over Florida, on the Space Coast, in Orlando and in the Tampa/St. Pete area. Olga's is simply the best. You will not find a better bridal store with beautiful dresses and experienced and attentive staff. They are all provide a personalized level of service and made the shopping experience fun for my mom and sister, who were there too. I will forever recommend Olga's to any bride in Florida who is looking for the best bridal store.

The dresses here are good quality and even though you're going to find some well-known lines you can keep the whole ensemble under about $2000. And if that seems astronomical, don't worry. The staff will work with you and put you into something beautiful within your price range. Just because Olga's is a small boutique doesn't mean it's overly expensive. You can find traditional, frills and lace, but there's also a nice selection of modern, lots of off the shoulder and sharp.

Beth at Olga's was amazing! She helped me find the perfect gown and assisted me through the "OMG, I can't find my perfect dress" moment. She was totally calm (and patient) through the whole process and helped me figure out what I wanted and how to get it. We essentially decided to alter one gown completely to get my dream dress.

When I came in for alterations--first fitting two weeks before the wedding as I live in WA state--she was so nervous for me, but I knew that this dress would not only fit but, like a glove. She did a fantastic job with specialized attention and I cannot say enough good things about Olgas. A HUGE thank you to Olga's team for getting my dress to me bustled, strapped, and fitted. :D

Only Con: the design house that made the dress didn't come through on estimated ship date, instead was one month early. Advice: Get the dress AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE!

Olga's was amazing. I bought my wedding gown, veil, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl sashes from Olga's and they were wonderful to work with. Pricing was competitive, staff was really responsive and friendly...which was really nice since I had LOTS of questions :) And I received a ton of compliments on my gown...I can't envision my wedding day with a different dress...it was perfect!

I had my "Say Yes to the Dress" moment at Olga's Bridal! I found my Maggie Sotero "Rhianna Royale" and knew instantly. Olga and her staff were professional and took the necessary time to provide the best service. Fittings and alterations were challenging since I was planning the wedding from out of town. Olga and her staff did their best to accommodate me and I am very happy! Thank you!

I think I went to just about every wedding dress store in the Tampa area. I had an idea of what I wanted, but just never had that special feeling when putting on the dress until I found the one at Olga’s. I went back and forth to Olga’s to keep trying on the same dress to compare it to the others. They did not mind and were helpful each time. Olga and her staff helped me find exactly what I what I wanted and made the alterations I requested with the designer. I got a sweetheart neckline put onto my Casablanca. Then the dress came and I was so nervous about hemming it with the lace on the bottom of dress, but you have to be able to walk and dance comfortably on your wedding day, so we went for it. Olga told me not to worry and they would take care of it… it’s hard for a bride not worry. ;) Esperanza did amazingly with the hem and alterations. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. They did take care of everything, and I was 100% satisfied! I just want to put my dress on again! I thank them all so much for helping me find my perfect dress! :) I can’t wait to show them pictures!

Olga's was so wonderful! We ordered my wedding gown, bridesmaids and flower girl dresses there. They were so nice to my wedding party and everyone loved their experience, including alterations. They did an amazing job on my bridal down alterations, which were complicated as the dress was all lace! The service couldn't have been better! We loved Olga's!

I went to 7 different stores before finding my dress at Olgas. I had been past the store many times over the years and when I got engaged I thought "surely that store won't have something unique", I really thought I needed to go to a "couture" bridal salon or one of those stores with thousands of dresses....really all I needed was Olga's!! Everyone was so friendly and so helpful, I know they deal with thousands of brides but they make you feel like you are the only one. When my dress came in it didn't fit right (not their fault) and I was extremely concerned that too much cleavage was going to show, no one tried to sell me on the way the dress looked, everyone, including Olga said "we will do what it takes to make it work" which made me stay calm....Esperonza (their seamstress) worked her magic and I came away with a dress that is truly one of a kind and everyone at my wedding fell in love with it!!! It was more beautiful than I could have imagined.

I was very happy with my experience with Olga's. On my second trip to Tampa with my mom, I had finished two appt's before 11am, they both ended quickly due to not having what I wanted. Not wanting to waste the day I called 3 other boutiques in the area and was told I could not even come into the store without an appt. I offered to simply look at their dresses and make an appt at a later time but was again told no. The last store on the list was Olga's. My mom suggested we just show up there and not try to call!! We did, and when we walked in at lunchtime...on Sat...I appologized for not having an appt and was greeted by an enthousiastic "Hi Honey, you don't need an appt, come on in and take a look around!!"

I described what I wanted, a destination style gown that would fit an outdoor FL wedding in summer. I have asked for the same thing at other salons and still gotten large heavy dresses with huge trains. I was starting to feel like the dress didn't exist. It was the consultant who asked me to try on a particular dress, and this was only after I pulled 4 or 5 that I wasn't sold on. It was PERFECT!! I had 3 other dresses in the fitting room that I didn't even try on. That was the dress!!

The staff at Olga's is not pushy, they let you pull dresses you like, but they are experts who are willing to jump in and help if asked. And the seamstress is AMAZING!!! The dress fit pretty well to begin with (also thanks to it being ordered in the correct size, something I find other salons almost refuse to do, always wanting to order big and tailor down) but it still needed some tweaking. It looked amazing!! I got so many compliments and several of my girlfriends asked where I got it and if they could get something similar!! Thanks Olga!!

I had been losing a lot of weight before my wedding and they waited until 1 month before my wedding to start my alterations. Under normal circumstances I wouldn't have even had anyone but my Aunt alter my gown but there was a family emergency and she was unable to help me. I wished my bodice would have been a little tighter but other than that they did a great job! I would suggest going during a week day though because they are BUSY on Saturday!

I live in Washington DC but I went wedding dress shopping in Tampa, FL with my family. Walking into Olga's after shopping in DC and a few other stores in Tampa was like a breath of fresh air. I immediately found about 20 gowns I wanted to try on and the employees were extremely helpful even though it was just 1 hour before their closing time. As you can imagine, it took me longer than 1 hour to try on all those dresses and still, the employees were very patient with me. I finally narrowed it down to 2 dresses but could NOT decide! I left, after all that, without a dress. Even though they were closed the next day, Olga told me she would be in the store for a couple hours in the afternoon and that I was welcome to come back in since I was only in town for the weekend. I went back to the shop on Sunday, made my final decision and never looked back! Olga and Michele were so helpful and were willing to ship the dress to Washington DC so I wouldn't have to travel to Tampa for alterations. I checked in with them via phone a few times before I received the dress to check the status and they were always extremely responsive and informative. I had a wonderful experience at Olga's!

I went to over 15 bridal boutiques and tried on over 200 dresses before I found "THE DRESS". At Olgas I was able to order a Casablanca dress with extra fabric to help create my dress. After her seamstress got over the initial shock that I wanted to completely cut off my wedding dress to above the knee for a fun reception dress and create a 4 foot detachable train for the ceremony she worked very patiently and hard to create my dream dress. Although this was her first time she figured out the design down to the hooks and Velcro to detach the train. I received a million compliments on my one of a kind design and know that I felt and looked amazing!! I can not thank them enough for going the extra mile to make sure all problems were taken care of and I was happy!!

I had a WONDERFUL experience at Olga's! I found a dress at another bridal shop and it was made by a designer that Olga's carried. I lived closer to Olga's and was familiar with their outstanding reputation, so I choose to order the dress through Olga's instead of the other store. As soon as the dress arrived, Olga's immediately called to begin scheduling my fittings. The seamstresses were so wonderful to work with and were great at offering their suggestions to make the dress feel more comfortable on me. The seamstresses put a tremendous amount of work into altering my three-layer chiffon, satin dress with detailed applique dress down 3 full dress sizes for me (I lost A LOT of weight). The dress was absolutely PERFECT and looked like it was made especially for me by the designer herself!

Six weeks later, I had a Wedding Celebration party for extended family and friends. I wore the bridal gown to the cocktail hour, but then changed into another dress that I had Olgas alter as well. Again, the dress had to be altered down 3 sizes and was a two layered chiffon dress as well. Olgas did an AMAZING job in just a few weeks! I am so pleased with Olgas and will go back for any formal dresses I will need in the future!

I absolutely loved Olga and her staff! I went in there after going into Alfred Angelo, David's and Demetrios and I loved this place. First of all, you aren't pressured into buying the first or tenth dress you try on. I stood in my dressing room for about 20 minutes with my dress on and no one said a word except to ask if I needed any help. I ordered a Casablanca dress and changed the neckline to my dress (which I had no idea I could do) with the help of Olga. Olga's measurements were perfect and when my dress came in, I barely needed any alterations with the exception of my bustle and a few minor adjustments on top. The seamstress there is awesome and my dress was so perfect on the day of my wedding that I hated to take it off. The prices in Olga's were very good compared to the other stores and it just had a more comfortable feel to it.

Olga was fantastic!! I found my dress the first day I went in, but I was debating between 2. I ended up leaving and returning the next day. I finally decided, and Olga was patient and helpful the entire time. She is no nonsense and honest, and I really appreciated that about her. The prices of the gowns were great, and I found several dresses that I really liked. I would definitely go back, and I recommend her shop to all you other brides in the Tampa area!

I bought my dress, bridesmaid dresses and had all our alterations done at Olga's. Olga was so lovely to my whole family. The shop did get busy on Saturdays but we timed our visits so we got the one on one attention we wanted. Her prices are fair. Not the cheapest but not the most expensive. I found my dress at another shop a little bit less but I felt so comfortable at Olga's that we went with her just for the experience. I would highly suggest any bride to be check out her shop.

I could not be happier with my experience with the lovely ladies at Olga's. I went to several shops in the area and either felt very generic or very pressured for a sale of an overpriced dress. At Olga's they leave you to browse, I went to the shop several times before I decided on a dress to purchase there. If you need help they're absoultely there to assist, but they don't swarm and pressure. They helped me customize my gown to perfection and their seamstress did an amazing job and created a really unique and beautiful bustle for me. The dress itself was amazingly affordable considering all the beadwork and detail. It was the best value I found in all the shops. The alterations are costly, but very worth it. When you're making that kind of investment and you're trusting some one to cut and sew on a very detailed dress you want the best and I certainly got it. They made the whole experience that much more memorable and I can't wait to drop back in to say hello and show them some pictures!

Olga's Bridal saved me by going above and beyond to find a beautiful wedding gown in less than 3 weeeks from my wedding in Germany. My original dress maker ruined my wedding dress and left me without one less than a month before my wedding. Everyone at Olgas helped to find and alter the perfect dress for me. It was absolutely stunning. Thank you Olgas, you are wonderful!

I did not get my wedding dress from Olga's, but I had gotten a bridesmaid dress from them in 2006 and decided to look there for my bridesmaid dresses. First, I had to pick my dresses based on the color that my fiance had chosen for his vest and tie, so I had to bring in a hankerchief from the tuxedo place and try to match it to a swatch. They were REALLY helpful with that process! Then, we had planned on only having a best man and maid of honor, but then decided to add a groomsman and bridesmaid, so I had to change my dress order, but they ensured that was not a problem. They were so wonderful with getting my bridesmaid dresses, I decided to get my wedding dress altered there, and they did a fabulous job! They were wonderful throughout the whole process!

I liked Olga's as soon as I walked in because they let you pick through the dresses yourself rather than having someone bring you dresses they think you'll like. They were very nice, professional, and the seamstress was amazing. I've heard horror stories about having wedding dresses altered but this woman was fantastic.

I didn't actually purchase my dress from Olga's, but I was quite pleased with being able to use their seamstress! She is *amazing*. My dress fit like a glove and was very comfortable. I've never looked better in my life. Very professional seamstress, knew exactly what she was doing and how to explain it to me. Perfect!

Olga's is a small bridal shop with a great selection of bridesmaid and wedding dresses - they have a lot of designers that other local bridal shops do not carry. I worked primarily with Olga and Diane and both were super friendly and helpful and not at all pushy, and they were very upfront about costs, sizing, alterations, delivery times, etc (I had some bad experiences with other shops I had looked in advising that I would need to pay extra fees to get the dress in on time and trying to sell me on larger sizes than my measurements). I definitely recommend going on a weekday as the shop is very small and on the weekends it is busy and you will not get the same personalized service. I got my dream dress from Olga's, plus the in-house seamstress gave me a beautiful two layer french bustle that held perfectly all night long!

The ladies at Olga's were friendly and professional. I needed two dresses, one for our small ceremony in Massachusetts, and one for the big party in Florida. They were able to order the styles I wanted, even though they did not carry them in the store. Alterations were quick and done correctly. Overall, a great experience.

Ended up falling in love with the first dress I tried on, and i don't believe in that stuff. Got a great deal. I wanted a halter as I'm bigger up top and smaller through the rest, very tall....it was perfect! The dress came in with a snag! They sent it back and I got a whole new dress! They had to take it in 3 times and it was absolutely perfect on my wedding day! I still want to wear it again and again. They would recognize me as soon as I walked in and treated me like a VIP each time. I loved the ladies there and loved the dress selection. Perfect. :)

After going to at least 5 other bridal stores looking for my wedding dress, I was happy to find my dress at Olgas. The staff are very nice and even though it is a small boutique you still get the special treatment. We completely took two different dresses and combined aspects of each dress to make a one of a kind Casablanca dress. They have all the big designers. They were quick with alterations and they are done in house.

Olga's was great. I came to them with a dress already in mind, so I can't review the whole experience for me, but they were great with my bridesmaid dresses from start to finish. I had tried on my dress at a store up north with my mother but wasn't ready to buy. I used the designer's website to find the dress in Tampa and Olga's had it. I tried it on again and purchased it right then. For the bridesmaid dresses, I had picked out a few styles prior to going, but Diane suggested another style and all three of girls loved the dress. The alertations portion of the process was a bit confusing. I didn't feel that they communicated with me as good as they could have when it came to the alteration process. But in the end, the dress was gorgeous and I have Olga's to thank!

I did not get my gown from Olga's because I had already found one that I liked, but I did have my bridesmaids go there. Although the store is small and stuffed, they do have a good selection! Olga and her staff were extremely helpful in making sure the girls ordered the right size and although they all thought the #'s were wrong... their dresses came back fitting perfectly! Olga and her team know what they are doing and have been in the business for years. I highly suggest you go there!

These ladies are great! They make you feel wonderful as a bride and the selection may not be huge but they manage to find exactly what would look great on you and what works for you. They are very honest and helpful. I had no problems with them. Only downside is because it's a small business there really is no wiggle room on prices and the alterations were great but alot after purchasing such an expensive dress. But it was well worth it! Great place to look for the perfect bride or bridesmaid dress (I got both there).

I got my gown and my bridesmaid's dresses at Olga's. They have a vast selection of dresses, which surprised me due to the size of the shop at first. They do not do appointments while you are looking, so you do have to try to time it to ensure you get "individual" attention. There are times that the store gets busy and it may be hard to get an associate's attention or to even try anything on. However, I knew this, so I received great service from Diane when I begen my search for the gown. Diane was very good at assessing the style I was looking for but also suggesting other things to confirm. She also had some great ideas when it came to the bridesmaids' attire too. The owner, Olga, was also great in helping figure out the timing of orders - between a variety of travel and family planning issues, we had a few "curveballs" in when we should order the girls' dresses and Olga planned it perfectly! We also had our alterations done at the store and the seamstresses did a great job. It was a bit pricey, however, given the occasion and the delicate fabric of the dresses, I definitely think it was worth it. The seamstresses were so good, in fact, that they were able to essentially convert one bridesmaid's dress into a maternity dress and have it still look just like the others'!

Olga's provided my bridesmaids with their dresses as well as doing the alterations on my gown. Everything turned out beautiful, but the alterations were a little pricey. The dress probably wouldn't have looked as good had I gone anywhere else though considering the fact that I lost around 25 lbs. between the time I ordered my dress and they made the alterations.

Olga was very busy but found a way to be attentive. If you tell her what you want, she'll find it for you. She knows her business well & if you love a dress but can't get past some little part of it, she knows, and she'll find out if it can be fixed. It's a small store compared to others, but they have such quality gowns that it's worth a try for yours.

Olga's bridal is a great place to find your bridal gown! The staff were very helpful, but also very busy... it's a smaller shop, so this can be expected. Dress turn-over from alterations was a little slow for me, but it was because 1) they were swamped with June weddings and 2) there was a baby born that was high priority for the staff. We ended up spending almost as much on alterations as we did on the dress, but they came out beautifully. They taught my MOH how to bustle the gown and she actually REMEMBERED their instructions :D

I didn't realize wedding dresses would take so long to order and started shopping fairly late in the process (mid-January for a May wedding). Olga's is a family-owned business and relatively small but they do carry some nice designers. Don't expect to be pampered like at some larger boutiques. I was a little annoyed by the fact that my dress arrived with a much shorter hem than expected and required significant tailoring even with completely flat shoes. That was unexpectedly pricey but luckily done in-house by a real professional - my dress had a lot of lace but the new hem and the bustle looked very natural). They're also very busy after 5pm, so planning a time to visit had to be done well in advance. However, the dress beautiful and overall it was a positive experience.

found my dream dress in another store (not conveniently located), and Olga being willing to giving me the same price, I went with her. Conveniently located in Tampa, their service was very good, even though alterations can be quite expensive (but this is the case of all Bridal stores). Up to alterations, everything was really to my satisfaction, and Olga, Michelle and the staff are very nice to deal with. Where I got really surprised is when i received my dress (had to be shipped to another FL location where my wedding was taking place). I bought quite a big dress, this was specially ordered for me so no "on the rack" or "sales" here, I paid the extra cost to have it shipped (fair enough of course) and the dress arrived a few days before my wedding in a tiny teeny shipping box. I had made clear that I was expecting a top notch packaging as to protect the dress as much as possible, (wouldnt have mind paying an extra 15 dollars or so) with bust shape, etc, so of course this didnt go too well with me nor with my Mom (many years of skilled sewing behind her). No need to say, the dress was a mess and I had to pay again for pressing (not cheap, as again, this is a big dress). The worst was still to come. I dont know what happened when they did the alterations, but I couldnt close the dress ! "Wait a minute" will you say, "you probably put weight on so cannot blame it on the store/alterations). Thing is, it was way too small around the chest, where we didnt need alterations, and where, unfortunately for me (LOL), I do not ever put weight on. My stomach ? maybe. My chest ? no way !! I had to find (in emergency state) a skilled seamstress, and ask her to fix this disaster. Luckily i found a wonderful lady, who didnt speak much english but had magic hands !! She also mentionned how bad all the alterations have been made, even showing me examples of what she was saying and a weak tiny hook supposed to hold the dress closed (was half broken anyway). She replaced it, did the needed work and on my wedding day, I felt wonderful in my amazing dresss (but with a couple hundreds less in my pocket, due to those mistakes).
This mostly happeneds because this was a destination wedding so i couldnt try the dress just before leaving the store with it, and I accept this fact. But the work was not done professionally enough, and that is a shame. Brides out there, go to Olga's Bridal for wonderful dresses, good pricing and nice people, but please be aware of the alterations department. Wishing you all a wedding as wonderful as mine was !!!

I bought my wedding dress there and my mothers dress. They have a great selection of dresses. I shopped around a lot and found Olga's prices were among the best. The only trouble I had was with service. They don't take appointments, so at times the place can get really busy and a little crazy. I would recommend them, but go at odd times to get the best service. There were times I would be standing in the fitting room waiting and waiting for someone to lace my dress up. Their alterations department is great. I ended up needing a lot of alterations, due to my height 5'1. The alterations were pricey, but worth it. My dress was absolutely stunning.

Olga's had great value for the money. I found a truly gorgeous beaded satin gown for $900 (looked like other's I had tried on for $3000+). Service was below average and try not to go in on a Saturday because it was packed (they don't make appointments either). I was very pleases with the cost and quality of the alterations also. Overall I would still recommend.

Olga's provided the alteration services for my gown and veil.

The alterations were done correctly but were very pricey.

I did have a long train that required a triple bustle, but later I priced around and found I paid a lot for the alterations.

My dress was purchased from Priscilla of Boston. POB quoted me $395 for all my alterations on my dress and veil. Olga's was significantly more than this price.

They did work with me to help ease the price pain. They were very nice and professional as well.

If you are looking for a nice selection of dresses at comparable prices; you will be satisfied. My only suggestion to Olga's is they need to step it up in the customer service department. They don't accept appointments and every time I went in for my fittings the place was very busy and I had to wait. During my last fitting, me and another bride who was also there for her last fitting; had to stand and compete for the limited mirror space so we could see our dresses, while approximately 10 girls pranced around looking at dresses. The crew stated to Olga that they were just looking and one of them was getting married in the summer of 2011! I really felt that on that particular day I had just about had enough....I had been in the shop a total of 5 times for shopping and fittings and every time the place did not give me any customer service to speak of....really a shame because this business could thrive if they would just pay a bit more attention to brides during their final fittings. One final thought; I must make mention that the alterations, although pricey, were top-notch. Thank you to Ezmeralda for her talent and expertise.

When searching for bridesmaid dresses, Olga's had some of the bigger name stores beat in price. While her slightly lower dress costs were an advantage, the frustration that came along with it were not worth the money saved. When getting measured for my dress, the seamstress told me that she recently had eye surgery and measured me as a size 18. When I got measured at a different boutique earlier that day, they measured me as a 14. I mentioned this, but trusted that they knew the designer's fit. When the dress came in, it was huge on me! I expected it to need a little tailoring, but nothing to this level. It is going to cost me a small fortune to get it fitted to me. I ran into some other issues as well; one being that they did not tell me they were charging me an extra $20 for the larger size that I didn't even need. When I noticed the mark up on my receipt, they were unapologetic for neglecting to alert me to the extra charge. They accidentally charged my credit card twice, but they were helpful in getting this issue resolved. They also mislabeled my dress, so when I picked it up, they told me it must be wrong because "the size 18 is much too big for me." They kept trying to give me the same dress in a 6. All in all, I found them to be very unorganized. If you use them, be sure to go with your gut on sizing and check your receipt before you pay!

Olgas Bridal Boutique responded with the following comments:

We are very sorry that you did not have an exceptional experience, as we try to provide to all of our customers who walk through our door. However, I am a little confused as to the details of this review. First of all, our seamstress never had eye surgery. One of our owners did, and only returned to work after recovery. Second, every company has a different size chart, so sizes can vary, depending on the manufacturer. We ALWAYS discuss the recommended size with the customer and the customer has to sign the contract that they agree with the size ordered, however, we will order the size that the customer wants. Also, all but one of our manufacturers that we carry has an additional charge of $20 for sizes 18 and up. When I read this review to our staff, no one could recall these incidents, but with only a first name to go by, it was hard to research. No one on our staff would try to give a size 6 to someone who measured into larger size. If you could please give us your information or call the store directly (813-877-1197) with your full name, brides full name, and wedding date, we would be happy to resolve these issues with you. Again, we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, as we try to give all our customers a wonderful experience.

I called to inquire about pricing for a dress on a Wednesday and was told that the price was valid until Friday at 5pm.

On Friday, I called back at 2pm and ordered the dress. I arrived at 5pm to pick up the reciept. At 6, I realized they charge more $40 more than the original quote.

After talking to Michelle, she offered me $20 off the dress or a refund of my deposit.

Word of advice, If you call for a price be sure to order the dress the same day if the price is lower than what you have seen at other bridal shops. I am very disappointed.

Olgas Bridal Boutique responded with the following comments:

First of all this entire review is false. Prices do not change Fridays at 5- the companys shipping schedule changes.We do not even carry that sample- I had to look up the price in the manufactors price book and quoted the exact price. She called and paid for it over the phone and had no problem with the price which was 250.00 for the dress. We also told her she would need extra length which is a $10 charge and in order to get it in on time for the wear date ,she would have to do it on a rush and the company charges $30.00 for that. So the extra charges add up to $40, but she was never quoted 210 for the dress, b/c the price for the dress was $250. She had no problem w/ the price when she ordered it over the phone and was even told about the extra charges for the rush and extra length. Nor did she have a problem when she came in a couple hours after to pick up her receipt.She then called to complain about the price later on. I told her the dress was always 250 and if she was unhappy, I would refund her the deposit amount, which no other shop would do b/c deposits are non-refundable.She said no, she wanted to order it anyway. Being nice, I gave her $20 OFF ,which looking back now, I shouldn't have done,especially since she made up a completely false story on wedding wire.We have been voted best bridal shop in this area the last 3 years, and I don't think we would receive those honors by giving out false information- not now, not ever.

As a new bride of color, I was excitedly to see what this store had to offer based upon the reviews. Needless to say, the staff and Olga were very rude, unconcerned and basically told me to go to David's Bridal first. Unbelievable...I would hate to call them racist, but it definitely was rude service and regardless of color, money is green & they lost a lot that day. Please do not visit here, if you are ethnic...very disgusting & I plan to voice this any way I can.
