Erin and the whole gang at Athena's bridal were just awesome. Erin was super accommodating and patient helping me find my dress, and she was not pushy at all! She allowed me to take my time figuring out what I liked and made me feel comfortable doing so. It was so nice to work... Read More with her and everyone at Athena's. Thank you!

I had to buy my gown off the rack due to the short timing.

I got my bridesmaids dresses here and although they were helpful in picking the dress out and very friendly, they ordered all of the girls dresses WAY too big. So everyone had to pay for alterations and a lot at that. In guessing they assumed we would pay them to have them taken... Read More in, we went elsewhere!

After my venue was set, the second thing I did was visited Athena's to look for a wedding dress. I can't believe I was able to find the dress of my dreams in my frist appointment. I loved that they only took one bride at a time up to the bridal section - it made the... Read More experience so enjoyable and private between me and my family/friends that came along. I would definitely suggest Athena's Bridal to anyone. They have found the dress for not only me, but two of my cousins!

Athena's Bridal

I am so glad I went to Athena's to get my dress. They were fabulous. I went to just see if they had the shoes in the store per the website. I didn't have an appointment and just walked in. We went upstairs where the bridal department is and saw the... Read More dress of my dreams. The owner said do you want to try it on! I did and loved it. I had an appointment to following weekend at David's and decided I would go to that and then have an appointment at Athena's after. I went to Altar bound after to look for the shoes as well, since Athena's can only order them from a magazine, they didn't have the shoes either and I looked at all the dresses than and hated them all. After I went to Lillian's for the shoes as well and they didn't even let us past the doorway without an appointment, they were extremely rude. I went to David's the following weekend and didn't like a single thing I tried on, the quality of the dress was poor and the staff seemed rushed and unfocused. The staff member couldn't find the favorites from the website I had saved, called two of my bridesmaids fat, and started helping another bridal party in the middle of my appointment. I wrote a review of the visit and never heard back. I went to my appointment at Athena's that day and ordered the first dress I tried on. The owner was so nice and the small business feel made the dress shopping experience wonderful! When my dress came in the wrong veil was ordered. The owner let me pick two veils that I liked from the magazine and got the take it for free and the charge of the veil that was wrong was taken off the order. The lady they sent me to for alterations made my dress fit like a glove. I was worried about this since David's alterations made my sister in laws dress too big and too short last year. Athena's steamed my dress for free. Athena's is fantastic and would highly recommend them over any other bridal shop. The customer service and quality is much better!

Almost didn't stop here because it is a little boutique in a wealthier suburb, but thank goodness I did! I wanted something a little different, but not weird, and I found the perfect dress within minutes of walking in. Staff was nice and professional, and prices were pretty... Read More typical. If you find one, go home and watch their facebook page for promotions -- I got $100 off my dress just for ordering it within a certain month!

My mom and I went to Athena's bridal looking for the perfect dress. The service was wonderful and incredibly accommodating! Because the service was so wonderful I was determined to purchase my dress through Athena's Bridal.

Athena's is a small dress shop in the middle of Centerville. Their selection is very limited which is why I'm giving them 4 stars rather than 5, but I was thrilled with my dress. I love that they are a local shop rather than a big chain, and their personal service was great.

I tried on at least 30 dresses before I finally found my dress at Athena's. Beth and her employees there are wonderful! I couldn't decide between two dresses and one of the employees put on one of the dresses and I wore the other so I could see them side by side and it really... Read More helped. What a great idea! They were also very helpful after I bought my dress recommending seamstresses and places to get the dress cleaned and preserved. We ended up getting all the bridesmaid dresses here and received the same great service!

Athena's is the best in town. I bought a KittyChen dress from there and it was absolutely perfect. They also remembered my name when I would come back into the shop. I was really impressed by that because I don't live in Ohio and only stopped by a couple times.
