My mother and I went to Davids first, and Athenas the very next day. The fact that we both cried and had this amazing emotional feeling that we didnt have the day before, we knew it was going to be a great experience no words could explain. Gina was awesome!

Gina was amazing! She listened to what I was looking for which was a "beachy" and light dress that wouldn't way me down. I have dancing plans! She pulled out as many different dresses that she could find. The last dress she pulled she looked at me and said, "Do you think this is... Read More "beachy"? I said, "Yes!" and that is the dress I bought! My mom and I decided to cut off about a third of the dress on the bottom (think beachy) and Gina suggested since the dress fit pretty well as-is that we could save some money and buy the floor model (as opposed to buying new with every intention of cutting a significant portion of the dress off). The cost savings alone will pay for any alterations I will have done and then some. It felt like she was motivated by seeing me happy with what I chose, not by the price tag of the dress I chose. We ended our transaction with a hug. I genuinely enjoyed her company that afternoon. Thanks Gina!

Gina is Awesome!

Athena's Bridal Boutique is a hidden gem in Clearwater! After unsuccessful searches at popular bridal boutiques in South Tampa and Westshore area, I decided to go out of my way to check out Athena after reading rave reviews here. This boutique has gorgeous dresses in every... Read More style. Aside from the selection, I appreciated Gina's services. Not knowing exactly what I wanted she picked various dresses for me to try on to help me narrow my search. She also provided candid feedback about what flattered my body type best. This is the experience I was looking for as opposed to other places that say you look great in everything just to get the sale. After going once by myself to narrow my search, I went again with my mother and said yes to the dress. Best part of it all, the dress was under my budget I had expressed. Thanks, Gina!!

Let me start by saying that my experience at Athenas started off great! Gina and another lady helped me. The trouble began when my brand new $1250 dress came with a stain on it. I was told I would have to come back to get it another day. I drove over an hour away for the dress.... Read More They brought the dress in back and tried to clean it. The owner didn't even offer to discount the dress that was supposed to be BRAND NEW! How can you do this to a bride knowing that there is not enough time to even order another dress? It took 5 months to get the dress and it was supposed to be new. I can't believe that I just had to pay full price for a used condition dress. Thanks a lot Athenas for waiting until I have no time to order a NEW dress.

Andrea the dress is a BRAND NEW dress...we have our documentation. If you were not satisfied with the results of spot removal we would gladly have sent it back to the manufacturer. The dress would have been expedited at their expense.
