I love love love love how Athena’s was the place I found my wedding dress! The bridal room was beautiful and inviting. Gina was amazing and such a fun person so work with, I felt comfortable right away. All the dresses are beautiful and more that I could hope for. I was pretty specific about what I wanted and Gina found all the dresses that fell into that category. Just like the wedding dress shows, I cried with happy tears when I found the dress. Thank you Athenas for making my dreams come true!!!
I had a great experience at Athena’s! I can’t believe it, but I found my dress! I even cried! Donna was a lot of fun to try dresses on with and she was so helpful! I didn’t want to go over $1,000 and we were able to find my dream dress for $450! I couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend all new brides to be spend some time with Donna. She really does listen to what you want and will do her best to make sure you get it!
Jill did an amazing job job helping me find the perfect dress!! I can’t thank her enough
I walked in, and Iris was there waiting for me with a smile’ I gave her ideas of what I was looking for. She we beyond helpful and I recommend everyone to go to find their dream wedding dress! I know I did!!!! Thank you!!!!
It was super fast and easy to pick out my dress for my big day and I had awesome help!
Gina is awesome! She helped my sister find her dress many years ago and mine a few days ago! She is so friendly, listens to what you are saying, and makes you feel great! Athena’s has beautiful gowns at a reasonable price. I found mine after only trying on 5 dresses!
I had the best wedding dress search experience at Athenas! They made me feel comfortable and Donna caught onto my taste and what I was looking for right away! It was such a great experience and they helped me find my dream dress!
I went back to Athena’s three times because I just could not decide what I wanted. I worked with Donna and she was amazing the whole time!! She listened to me every step of the way and did not try to force me into any gown or a decision! I had the best experience and would order my wedding dress from then again in a heartbeat!
The entire team at Athena’s was helpful, flexible and extraordinary listeners. Iris helped me find my perfect dress! I would recommend her and Athena’s to anyone. They will help you “say yes to the dress”.
Gina was wonderful. I went in not really knowing exactly what I wanted, but Gina helped me to find the perfect dress! The dress styles and choices at Athena’s are gorgeous.
Donna is amazing. She makes you feel sooo comfortable and doesn’t push the sale!
Donna was amazing!! I am an out of state bride and she made everything perfect!
Donna was so helpful in helping me find my wedding dress! It was the second time trying on dresses and she helped me find the one! I told her what my budget was and she was very respectful about not pushing me to try things on over budget. She went above and beyond to find me all the dresses in the boutique that was the style I was looking for. Donna was very good at knowing and expressing when a dress looked good on me or if we had already tried on a better option. I really appreciate how honest she was with me. Overall great experience, even the people I brought with me were impressed by Athena’s. Don’t hesitate to check this place out!
Amazing customer service! The consultants were very nice and the atmosphere was awesome. I ended up trying on and purchasing a dress I would have never envisioned myself in.
I found my dress! Athena’s fit me in for an appointment on very short notice which was highly appreciated! When I arrived, Jill met me at the front and from there we began a discussion about my desires and interests in potential gowns. Jill listened as I explained what I thought I wanted, and at the end she encouraged me to look at other things too, just to keep options open. I pulled my first few dresses from their large selection. Most of their sample dresses are in a size that will fit an 8 or above which was perfect for me! I ended up deciding on the 2nd dress I tried on. Jill and the rest of the ladies at Athena’s made this experience enjoyable and stress free. I had the chance to take the lead, but I had help when I needed. Thank you, Jill and everyone at Athena’s!
I don’t have enough fingers to count the number of people that have recommended Athena’s to me. Every single person loved their experience there. As maid of honor for my best friend, I shared the experienced of her dress shopping. I couldn’t wait until it was closer to my wedding date to go back to Athena’s and try on bride dresses. I would refer to Gina as a “Fairy God Mother.” From the moment I walked into the boutique, my family and I were greeted with genuine excitement. I didn’t feel pressured at all from Gina in trying on dress after dress. Most importantly, she is so in-tuned knowing what you love and not love. She truly understands you. I am so impressed with Athena’s that I also plan to order my bridesmaid dresses from them too. Overall, I had an amazing experience and am excited to continue working with Athena’s.
I had an amazing time finding my wedding dress. Thank you for all your help.
Shopping for your dress can be overwhelming, but Gina listened to what I was looking for and gave me dresses to try that she though I wanted, not ones that she wanted me to buy. The dresses were all very nice, and weren’t overpriced like some boutiques. Even better, there was no pressure to “buy before you leave the store”. Finding the right dress is hard enough w/out the added pressure of “do it now or you lose the discount”. Their shop is a bit of a “hole in the wall” but the service is great and they have been accommodating throughout the whole process. I recommend checking them out!
I LOVE IRIS!! She was so amazing and made my dress shopping process so much easier!!
Iris literally made my experience everything I could have dreamed of & more! She was very patient and made me feel like family. She really takes the time to get to know you and pulls the perfect dress that I wouldn’t have found on my own.
Iris also helped my sister and 3 of my friends all find their bridal gowns as well.
I highly recommend going to Athena’s & booking an appointment with Iris
I had the best experience at Athena’s! After trying on 3 dresses I found my dream wedding dress. It was an amazing experience!
Iris was a joy to work with. I could tell that she was experienced in bridal gowns and what would fit properly on me. She is honest and super kind with helping me make a decision on my dress. She did not make me feel like I needed to make a decision that day.
I will certainly refer any friends to Iris when they are looking for a wedding dress.
I had a great experience! Jill was so helpful finding dresses in my style and budget. I found the perfect dress for me! Everyone was so nice and professional
My consultant was Donna and she was simply amazing!
Had a wonderful time! It was a nice and intimate setting to try on wedding dresses for the first time. Service was great! Definitely recommend.
My experience was amazing!!!!
Donna was wonderful! She encouraged me to try outside the box and I found the MOST stunning Morilee gown. She made me feel super comfortable and kept me on track with what I wanted and she kept my entourage in check.
I was pretty nervous since this was my first dress shop I had been to. But Donna made me feel very comfortable she really listened to what I was looking for I went through a good amount of dresses and she was very patient she saw what I didnt like and what things I loved and she found the most perfect dress I wouldnt change a single thing about it. She explained when to measure and order so things will come on time. Couldny be happier with my decision to go here.
Gina was wonderful. She helped me find the perfect dress and made the experience so memorable! Thank you Athena’s bridal!
Going to Athena’s was a great experience. They weren’t pushy and listened to what I wanted in a dress. They had plenty in my price range, which was under $500. Gina was absolutely amazing and friendly!
the experience was amazing! person that helped us was friendly and warm, we could not have found a better place!
The service was fantastic. Gina was great to work with! She was patient with me even though I gave a lot of vague responses and opinions for dresses at first. She was attentive to specific details for what I was looking for and after a short amount of time she brought me the perfect dress! I would highly recommend Athena’s Bridal to any bride.
Gina was fantastic! She took a hesitant bride not crazy about average wedding dresses and made me fall in love with one. From the moment I walked in until the moment I left I was happy and smiling. She was patient and listened to what I wanted and knew what would look good on me better than I did. She found me the perfect dress and without her I’m not sure my wedding planning would’ve fallen into place as well as it has. I left Athenas after two hours with my dress and my bridesmaid dresses. And they make it so easy for my out of town bridesmaids to get their dress. Shop here first! Do yourself a favor.
Donna was an amazing consultant and found me My dream dress! She listened to what I was looking for and got dresses for me that were absolutely perfect and a much better value for the money than other boutiques! She was also able to help go through all the details with my mom on FaceTime which was so special to me . Love the dress and cannot wait to say my “I do’s” 🙂 thank you Donna @ Athena’s !
Gina was very professional and helpful by providing the dresses I was looking for and was eager to meet our needs for the dress I fell I love with! I look forward to recommend Gina’s service to all my friends who are searching for their dress!
I was so happy that I went to Athena’s. From the moment I walked in the door to the moment I checked out. I tried on over a dozen dresses and Iris my consultant was so amazing and helpful. She let me continue to try on dress even after I knew I found mine, to please the people that were with me. I would recommend Athena’s to anyone look for a wedding dress or a dress for a special occasion.
Donna was fantastic!! She listened to exactly what I wanted in a dress and did a wonderful job at helping me find exactly what I wanted. It was fun to work with her. Thank you
Gina was very approachable and listened to what we thought about each dress. She picked the dress of my dreams and I am glad I was able to share it with my family. Couldn’t have been a more perfect day!
I found my dream dress at Athena’s and I had such a fun and memorable experience while I was there. Iris helped me during the entire time and she made me feel super comfortable while trying on the dresses. I can’t wait to wear my gorgeous dress on my wedding day!! -Carrie
Excellent staff! Found my dream dress
I loved my experience at Athena’s Bridal. Gina was very patient with me the whole time, which wasn’t easy considering how picky I am. I was offered many gowns to try on and my requests were always met. It was a wonderful experience overall. Thank you Gina 🙂
Gina was wonderful to work with. She helped me find a style I that complimented my body type within my budget. I would definitely recommend this boutique to anyone looking for a wedding dress!
Donna was wonderful and made me feel like a million bucks!!! She was very warm and found me the perfect dress!!!
I will recommend to them to go ahead and purchase the bride wedding dress here, they are kind pricy but, the dresses are gorgeous especially if you are looking for a dress with lots of sparkle and lace, Ms. Iris is excellent in customer care needs, she make sure your happy with your choice of purchase and if you don’t know what kind dress you really are looking for, she will bring ideas and different choice of dresses and designs for you to try until you get that perfect dress; your completely happy, and feel like a princess for your big day!!!!!!!!!!!
The experience was so much more than I expected. Felicia was so patient with me. My party and myself pulled at least 20 dresses and kept bringing in more. Felicia even pulled some and she pulled THE most gorgeous dress that had everything I wanted and more. She took the time to get the seamstress to see if certain alterations were possible. The dress I purchased was even way under budget. I will definitely be back for the bride maid dresses
Athena’s bridal had excellent customer service! I went back several times to find the dress for me. Every single time I went there I felt very welcomed and loved my experience. Felicia was a very nice representative and ultimately the customer service is what brought me back there. I found my dress but wanted to sit and think about it so I made another appointment where I then said yes to the dress. The dress I chose is beautiful it was very affordable. I’m so happy I stumbled upon this place.
Thank you very much, Gina is very nice . I am happy with my dress and with the price. Can t wait to wear it.
Gina at Athena Bridal listened to me and found the perfect dress in under an hour (The idea of spending the better part of a day to find a dress sounds like torture to me). I can’t wait for it to come in!
Donna was a great help during the process of finding the perfect wedding dress! She encouraged me to be open to different styles and I am so glad I listened because I was able to say yes to the dress!
My experience far exceeded my expectations. The boutique had a variety of wedding dress styles and had a comfortable, inviting atmosphere. Donna my dress coordinator was a sweet heart and helped me in and out of a dozen dresses before I chose “the one”…which (by the way) she said I’d like the best first but I didn’t listen. Follow your heart but Donna has your back!
My bridal consultant Donna was the best! She was insightful, fun and listened to all my dress specifications. I was extremely comfortable and had a wonderful experience.
Very happy that i has the opportunity to come in because i found my wedding dress!!! Gina was sincere and really listened to what i was looking for and got it at a great price too!!
Iris was the best! Helpful, fun and sensitive to my thoughts and opinions. It was great to have her by my side during this important decision.
Great environment. Donna was very helpful! She made me feel very comfortable and had me try different types of dresses since I wasn’t sure what I wanted. She was very respectful and always there if I needed something,
Felicia was wonderful!! Would recommend Athenas to any bride to be!
Athena’s was wonderful! Literally the first dress I tried on during my appointment was “the one”! Felicia was so nice and made me feel incredibly comfortable throughout my appointment. My only critique would be that as someone who isn’t a sample size, I was limited with what I could actually try on. Thankfully that didn’t stop me from finding my perfect dress!!
I had a great time and felt like a princess trying on my dress! They also let me try on any dress I wanted and helped me get my final look.
My experience with Iris was outstanding. She really went above and beyond. I am eloping and we decided not to tell anyone. I was unable to have anyone with me but, Iris made me feel like I had my best friend helping! She was so caring and really helped me choose the perfect gown! We also ordered the tux here. And had a wonderful amount of help. Thank you so much!
I had a great experience, awesome ladies!!!
Athena’s was amazing. Although weary when you first park and look from the outside, the showroom, mirrors and area was comfy, clean, and cozy. There was a wide selection to find whatever you wish. Felicia was my hero! I had no idea what I was doing or how to even look for dresses and she listened to me and helped me to the moon and back. AND we found the dress! Highly recommend Athena’s and Felicia!!!!
Donna was very nice and easy to work with. She was open to what I wanted in a dress and was honest in a good way! I’d definitely go back!
Iris made my whole shopping experience feel so special and beautiful and was really doing her absolute best to work within my budget and give me many suggestions to stay within the budget!! I found the dress of my dreams and it’s all thanks to her and my wonderful bridesmaids!!
Athena’s Bridal was personally recommended to me by a friend. They also have an excellent reputation in the Tampa Bay area and I can see why. Donna was very nice and easy to work with. She listened to what I wanted in a dress and was honest and helpful! Together we pulled 6-8 dresses and I finally found “the ONE” with every detail I wanted. Having visited another bridal shop earlier in the day I was pleased with the personal attention at Athena’s. The dress I purchased was gorgeous and a great value for all the lace and beading. I will definitely be back to look at their selection of bridesmaid dresses.
Gina was great! Knew exactly which dresses would look good. Found a dress in no time. Great selection with veils to match!
4 bridal shops and 30+ I was tired and a bit discouraged. I went to one bridal shop after work one day, solo, and found the first dress I actually loved.
I spent the entire weekend searching for a dress (with friends and family) and after 4 bridal shops and 30+ I was tired and a bit discouraged. I went to one bridal shop after work one day, solo, and found the first dress I actually loved. Although it was super short on me and in the wrong color, I still loved it so much that I called the next day to make an appointment to come back in with a couple friends before purchasing. The lady at this particular shop (NOT Athena’s) was anything but pleasant and wouldn’t listen to my needs so I decided to look up on the designer’s website in search for other shops with that exact dress. That is how I found out about Athena’s!
I immediately called Athena’s and was told they had the dress I was looking for – and in the color I wanted. I explained my situation to Gina – I just wanted to come in with a few friends to try on just that dress. I told her that the earliest we could be there would be 5:30PM that same day. She advised me that they close at 6:00PM but would be more than happy to accommodate.
As soon as we got there, we were happily greeted. Donna pulled the dress and helped me get it on. She was very helpful and friendly. After about 5 minutes in the dress taking pictures and trying on veils I knew this was the dress I had to have – so I placed the order!
I am so fortunate that the other place (again, NOT Athena’s) was rude and rubbed me the wrong way because I don’t think I could of had a better experience any where else. Gina and Donna were beyond fabulous! I am so happy that they were accommodating and took the time to make my experience easy and wonderful. I am looking forward to going back in search of bridesmaids dresses.
Just got my wedding dress and the service was excellent! I scheduled for an appointment on a Saturday it was taken right in. My girl Iris was very understanding and knew my budget for my second wedding. I found a dress that was simple but elegant especially for going down the aisle the second time. I can’t wait for my wedding in January
The experience I had at Athena’s Bridal Boutique was phenomenal! I had somewhat of an idea of what I liked when I made my appointment, but Donna really helped me figure out what I liked and didn’t like. She went above and beyond! Since we had the store to ourselves (because hurricane Irma was on the way that upcoming weekend), Donna suggested I try on any and every dress that caught my eye. Needless to say, I found the perfect dress for my wedding day.
I would definitely recommend Athena’s to any bride!
I wish there were more sizes that fit and all colors of swatches available. Otherwise the shop is very charming and worth every penny. Donna was absolutely magnificent!
Gina was great! She listened to my likes and dislikes. She wasn’t pushy. I wasn’t rushed either. She allowed me to take all the time I need to find a dress. Ultimately, I said yes to the dress at Athena’s Bridal Boutique. I would definitely recommend going here!
Gina helped me with all of the dresses I was looking for. She even suggested another style and I fell in love with it. I ended up buying the dress Gina recommended and love it!
Gina was amazing! She went above and beyond for me! I truly am glad to was my associate! She made me feel beautiful and for that she is a true just all around gem!
She was honest and that’s what makes a good associate she didn’t make me try ok a dress after a dress once she knew I found the winner. She was just amazing! Without her this couldn’t of happened!
After shopping at another bridal shop I was sure I found my dress. Just to be safe we decided to go to Athena’s. I am so happy I did because I found the perfect dress. They have so many beautiful dresses to chose from, so many different styles.
Donna was great to work with! After finding out that Alfred angelo, the place I originally ordered my dress from, had closed, Donna suggested we come in that day to look for a replacement. After showing her the picture of the dress I purchased, she was able to find an incredibly similar dress in one of the style books and helped me try on dresses of the same designer to make sure I liked certain aspects of the dress I wanted to order. Although they did not have the exact dress to try on in store, Donna made sure I was comfortable ordering from the catalog and called the manufacturer to make sure the dress could get here in time. She made what seemed like it should be an overly stressful situation seem like a walk on the park.
Walked in without an appointment and Athena’s was very accommodating! Gina was my consultant and she was amazing. She listened to the style of dress I liked and made sure to stay in my price range. She picked out beautiful dresses and always made sure to fix the train and always made sure I could see the dress at every angle. Gina was very helpful and there for you, unlike some of the pushy salesman at David’s Bridal. I wound up finding my dream dress and am very excited to be working with Athena’s bridal in the future. I live in Virginia but was visiting my mother in Clearwater and they offered to ship the dress for a reasonable fee!
Athena’s is a beautiful shop and had the exact dress I wanted. It was perfect! It was the first one I tried on, but I was still there for about an hour and a half working with Donna. She was wonderful going through all of the details with me and showing me different options for the dress and bridesmaid gowns. Thank you for everything!
Felicia was an absolute pleasure to work with and so helpful! She listened to everything I wanted in a dress and helped me find the perfect one.
Athena’s was an absolute joy to shop at! I was immediately greeted the moment I walked in and taken directly back to get started. My boutique assistant was Iris and she was nothing short of spectacular. She listened to what I was looking for and pulled as many dresses that fit my description. In fact, she pulled a particular dress that she thought I would like but at first glance I wasn’t very fond of it. She encouraged me to try it on anyway and guess what, it was PERFECT!! It was exactly what I was looking for and I am soooooo grateful that she made me put it on.
If you are looking for an honest and affordable boutique with an amazing selection then you should head to Athena’s.
Everything at athenas bridal was amazing and they were very patient with me as I tried on almost every dress there until I found my perfect dress !!! I highly recommend them to everyone!
Donna was amazing! I spoke with her on the phone prior to my appointment and she made me feel so comfortable and that she was just as excited to work with me as I was with her. Then during the appointment she really took her time, listened to everything I thought I wanted and pulled amazing dresses. After trying on the first dress, which I chose, we moved on to the next, which Donna chose, and we both IMMEDIATELY knew that was the one. I continued trying on dresses, narrowed it down to 4 and after trying them all on again, the second dress I tried on was for sure the dress for me. Donna was amazing about explaining the colors and how alterations would work, and I felt like she was just as excited as I was.
Thank you Donna and Athena’s for helping me find my perfect dress!
Great service, really listened to my preferences and didn’t push me to buy or try on anything I was not comfortable with. Thanks Felicia!
Iris was amazing and so helpful. I had such a good experience picking out the dress for my big day!
Donna was amazing! I was frustrated with wedding dress shopping after my first two dress shopping attempts, but Donna made the experience amazing! From the second I walked in, she was bubbly, encouraging and really listened to what I was looking for. She picked out so many incredible dresses and I found my dream dress! The prices are incredible, the staff is awesome and I would definitely recommend!
I loved how easy it was to make an appointment here. The shop was quiet and they let you look around at your leisure. Donna was awesome as well!
Gina was the woman who helped me. She did a wonderful job of finding dresses that not only flattered my figure but also my style. She even pushed me to try on things that I might not have tried myself, and one of those ended up being my perfect dress. Working with Athena’s Bridal was a great experience!
I came to Athena’s on a Sunday as a walk in and found my dress with the help of Donna. We were the only customers at the time and I felt very comfortable trying on dresses and talking about what I wanted. In the end I found my dress after having been to 3 other bridal stores.
Donna was absolutely amazing! She had the type of personality that you felt like you’d known her much longer! She was kind, patient, and gave honest feedback. She was so pleasant to partner with!
Athena’s Bridal was AMAZING! I thought I wanted one dress, but I ended up getting another dress that my consultant, Donna, picked out for me. I received top-qaulity service while I was here, I couldn’t be more thankful. I would definitely recommend going here! Thank you Donna and Gina for all your help 🙂
Celina was awesome! She made sure that I felt comfortable, and she took her time with me. She also help me find a gorgeous wedding gown that I had no intentions of trying. I love, love my dress and I think it’s perfect. Thank you Celina you are great.
Had a great day here! Donna was amazing. She was very friendly and welcoming to myself and bridal party. Great selection for a more modest budget. Can’t wait to wear my dress on my special day!
Went in to get my wedding dress. Donna easily saw my style and understood what I was searching for. She listened but was still creative and brought me dresses to try on that I hadn’t thought of, and, in the end I purchased one of her great finds!
Walked in without an appointment, was received very warmly, and didn’t feel judged for having a budget. I had one-on-one attention and she was extremely helpful. It was the first location I tried on a dress and walked out having ordered a beautiful one 🙂 I can’t wait to see it when I get it fitted! Would 110% recommend to anyone.
I worked with Felicia and she was awesome! 10/10 for sure! This was my fourth bridal shop and I was beginning to think I was never going to find “the dress”. When we came in, she made us feel at home. She accommodated a very large party (8 people!) with ease. She made sure to talk to me privately in the dressing room to make sure my very optionined family wasn’t swaying MY choice. She even suggested coming back later if I wanted. However, we found “the dress” and she made me feel like a bride. She had me test the dress by sitting in it and walking around the shop to see how it flows. She was a God send during a very over whelming and high emotional process. Thank you Athena’s and thank you Felicia!
Athena’d bridal had the best selection of dresses. I had a really hard time picking one, only because there was so many I loved! Donna was awesome and made me feel really comfortable throughout the whole process. The dress I ended up getting was one that she found and surpassed my expectations for sure! I definitely couldn’t have done it without her and I’m so pumped for the big day! My sister and mom plan on going back for their dresses!
Loved working with Iris. I had a low budget and she honored that and helped me find a dress that I love. When I ordered, they contacted me the same day to let me know when it would be in.
The service at Athena’s was great as well as the dress selection. But most importantly, the prices were the best I’ve seen anywhere. I will be recommending Athena’s to everyone! Thanks!
From the moment I walked in to the minute that I left. Gina was really attentive, patient, and she listened to my needs and what I liked or didn’t like. She was very professional. I will gladly work with her again for when I look at the bridesmaids dresses. I truly recommend her for any occasion you have. She is the best.
Felicia was very helpful and helped me pick out a beautiful dress!
Donna was a sweetheart and helped me find a dress exactly as I described. If I ever need another wedding dress (hopefully not) I would go back to her!
I had such a great experience at Athena’s Bridal, and I said ‘yes to the dress’! This was my 3rd stop in a two day period, but the service was amazing from Donna, Not only was the service amazing, but the selection was the best I had seen anywhere. The styles were all current and the prices were great. Thank you to Athena’s Bridal for helping me to find my dress.
I would highly recommend their shop to anyone looking for an that perfect dress for their special day.
I purchased my wedding gown at Athena’s bridal boutique. They had a great selection and Donna was amazing at helping me pick out the perfect dress. She was so attentive and caring and I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful person to help me through the process. . I had my alterations done there also, and the service was just as exceptional as the buying experience.
I would highly recommend their shop to anyone looking for an that perfect dress for their special day.
These ladies went above and beyond for me while I was trying to find my perfect dress. I’m so awful at making decisions, but as soon as I slipped my dress on I knew it was the one for me! I felt so comfortable and so at home while I was trying on dresses. It’s the experience I always imagined having 🙂 Donna helped my find my perfect wedding dress and Brigitte altered my dress and made it fit perfectly! Couldn’t have done it without them!
Athena’s bridal is an amazing store to find the perfect wedding dress and the plus is it is affordable as well. The staff were absolutely wonderful! They were friendly, welcoming, and helpful in the entire process. I am so happy and excited to have found my perfect dress and can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day! Athena’s made it all possible!
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! She helped me fond a dress that i FELT LIKE A BRIDE IN, it wasnt about the money for her, she didnt rush us at all, and was great with our 5 month old son (which every mom loves a good woman your baby loves 😉 ) My mther and I could not have been any happier with our experience with Athenas and most of all Gina
Athena’s Bridal Boutique is a family owned and operated boutique with a great selection of wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and mother of the bride/groom dresses! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! I found the most beautiful bridesmaids dresses here and my girls loved them! They were great to work with – I even changed the color of the dresses by 1 shade of pink before they shipped, and the changes were taken care of quickly and correctly! Thank you Athena’s for being a part of our special day!Athena’s Bridal Boutique is a family owned and operated boutique with a great selection of wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and mother of the bride/groom dresses!

Gina and staff at Athena’s Bridal were amazing! First of all, I had a 1 month to find a dress i loved. While most of the dress boutiques balked at my timeline, Athena’s was able to accommodate my schedule. Gina went above and beyond to find dresses that fit the style I wanted as well as my budget. She took a chance on a dress that wasn’t exactly what I had been looking for but turned out to be the dress i loved! I didn’t even want to take it off as I debated between two beautiful dresses! They had plenty of styles to fit any budget. I would definitely recommend Athena’s Bridal if you’re looking for formal dresses and great customer service!
Gina was very helpful in finding what I was looking for in my 2nd wedding dress attire. I fell in Love with the dress the minute I put it on!
Donna was a delight to work with! She made dress shopping fun and exciting. She wasn’t pushy at all and she will give you her honest opinion. She has to best intentions for future brides. Very funny too! I definitely recommend
My experience at Athena’s was wonderful and I am in love with the dress that I purchased. I went in wanting something simple and left with something more dramatic, a decision I didn’t come to lightly. Gina (my consultant) did a great job of showing me several different dresses and styles that fit in with what I was looking for and well as what she thought would compliment me and my wedding well. I actually lost count of the number of dresses that I tried on (8-10?) in the 2 hour appointment, whereas at other places, I had only tried on 4-5 dresses per appointment. This really allowed me to get a good taste of everything and try on styles I might have not considered before.
Even more so, the prices were well within reason, especially for known designers. They were clearly well made and the Gina was very knowledgeable about the types of alterations available and which designers are willing to adjust their patterns to make your vision come to life. She did a great job of eliminating any worry and gave me the confidence to say “YES” to my dress!
Gina was amazing!!! So very helpful and personable! This was the second shop I had looked at before purchasing my dream dress and I wouldn’t change a thing. I definitely recommend Athena’s and Gina!
I had a wonderful experience finding my wedding gown. Felicia took such great care of me, finding the perfect dress for me to say YES to the DRESS!
This is my 1st wedding so needless to say I am absolutely clueless on what I was looking for. I live about 4.5 hours away (in south florida) so when I decided to take a trip to clearwater, to visit family for 4th of july, I googled a few different boutiques in the area to check out, as well. I have heard from others to always make an appointment when shopping for a wedding dress but to me that just seems like I would have pressure to purchase and wasn’t ready yet, being that I have never even stepped foot into a bridal boutique before. I walked into Athena’s with my mother and was immediately greeted by Felicia. She pointed us in the right direction to browse and minutes later approached us and told us that her appointment cancelled and she would be happy to assist us with any questions or any if there was any style that I would like to “try on”. Still giving us our space and respecting my very picky taste, lol… I finally decided to try on what I thought was my type. Felicia was there every step of the way. Within 15 minutes of being in the dressing room I said “YES TO THE DRESS”. It was the 1st dress I tried on and the last dress I cared to look at. The great hospitality that was given by Felicia will NEVER be forgotten. What can usually become a stressful experience for an upcoming bride ended up being such a pleasure. I am so grateful of whoever cancelled their appointment with her because she made my day/weekend/vacation and will make my wedding as well. Thank you Felicia and Thank you Athena’s Bridal Boutique. I absolutely LOVE my dress!
Donna was an awesome help from the time I spoke with her for the first time over the phone till the moment I found my perfect dress! I told her what I like and she delivered beyond my expectations! She is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her! This was my first store and I put a deposit on my dress same day!! Amazing! I couldn’t be happier! Thank you Donna!!
Thank you, Gina for such a wonderful experience in your store. I felt comfortable with you and you made myself and my bridal family feel so welcomed. I can’t wait to get my dress and wear it on the best day ever!!!
I drove an hour and a half to visit Athena’s. I had a friend who purchased their dress here so I decided to come look. I had two other places to check out after Athena’s, David’s Bridal and Alfred Angelo. The dresses at Athena’s are unique, the prices affordable and the staff so inviting. I brought my Mom, my maid of honor, and bridesmaid. We all hands down fell in love with this place (especially after checking out the other two!) I had my “Say Yes to the Dress” moment! Such a beautiful place. Thanks Gina!
Went to David’s Bridal first and then went there next. Athena’s dresses are so much better quality, have a better feel and have great prices. At David’s Bridal I felt pressure to buy one right there on the spot. At Athena’s Donna was just concerned with me feeling comfortable, pretty and finding exactly what I wanted for my wedding.
The entire staff at Athena’s Bridal Boutique were amazing! So nice and helpful. Iris was so patient and really listened to everything that I wanted in a dress and never tried to push the most expensive dress at me. It was the first bridal store I’d been to that I didn’t feel like the staff was just pushing any dress on me that I showed the least bit on interest in. And they have a fantastic selection at a great price range. I would definitely recommend Athena’s Bridal Boutique to everyone!
I had the most wonderful experience wedding gown shopping at Athena’s Bridal Boutique! The atmosphere is so calm and private. Donna helped me during the entire process, and she was absolutely AMAZING! She made me feel so comfortable and had a great process for helping me select the perfect dress since everything I tried on was absolutely beautiful. Donna was friendly, fun, genuine, and patient. I felt like I was trying on gowns with my fabulous aunt Donna instead of with someone I had just met. Everything about my day at Athena’s was perfect and stress free. I absolutely love my dress, Donna, and Athena’s Bridal Boutique!
Donna was amazing and her expertise and ideas helped me find my perfect wedding dress
They have a vast selection of dresses for your special day, whether you are looking for bridal, flower girl, bridemsmaid, and even mother of the bride! Check them out!!!
Had such a great time picking out my wedding dress at Athena’s! They were accommodating throughout the entire process! The seamstress did an amazing job with all the alterations for both my wedding dress and my bridesmaids dresses! I would highly recommend Athena’s to both brides and their bridal parties! It was an overall amazing experience!
Donna was so kind and helpful! She was honest on what styles looked not so great and great on me and to top it off she was never pushy or after the sale she made me feel like my needs and wants were the priority! Also my mother bought her wedding dress from here 29 years ago! such a great place would recommend to anyone!
To be honest, I was a little nervous for my appointment. I have worked in bridal in the past which means I have tried on several dresses. I also didn’t allow myself a ton of time to go dress shopping (my wedding is in a little less than 5 month) because all of my bridal party and family live 1000 miles away and I really wanted someone to be here with me. My MOH was able to fly down for the day and Athena’s let us FaceTime my parents in during the entire appointment. Gina was simply amazing. She listened to everything I didn’t want (because that is all I really knew), took clues of what I did like, and stayed around my budget. I tried on about 5 dresses before narrowing things down. The gowns at Athena’s brought so much more character than I have ever experienced. I left the salon later with 2 favorites. She was never pushy and told me to really think about which one I liked the best. I had another appointment that afternoon but couldn’t stop thinking about those 2 dresses. I called Athena’s immediately and drove back to put my favorites on. Gina gave her honest opinions which, along with my MOH and parents, helped me make my decision. Athena’s assured me that it could be in on time which calmed my nerves. I LOVE my dress and I cannot wait to wear it on my wedding day!
It was a very relaxing and not stressed place to go find my dress. They had a lot to choose from and were very helpful. I would tell my freinds and family about this wonderful place:) Thank you for helping me pick out the perfect dress.
Found the dress of my dreams, got incredible one-on-one attention and I can’t wait to go back for my fittings and visit with the ladies!! Ask for Donna, she’s the best!!
Donna was very helpful and the store is very nice. Large mirrors to see every angle. Beautiful dresses and great prices!
Donna at Athena’s Bridal helped me to find my dress this past Sunday during a trunk show and was wonderful to work with. I made an appointment earlier in the week and Donna was able to accommodate me within a few days of my call.
During the appointment, Donna took some info regarding the type of dresses I wanted to try on and my budget. Donna was very understanding about my budget and never pressured me to try on dresses that were too expensive, even when a few caught my eye. While I tried on dresses, Donna helped me to figure out which style and fabric I ultimately preferred and never rushed me. She gave enough feedback to be helpful, but never pushy. One of the last dresses I tried on was a beautiful mermaid gown which was at the top of my price range and I was almost ready to purchase it, but Donna looked through the store one last time to find a dress meeting my preferences. She ultimately found a similar dress way under my budget that was more beautiful and flattering than the dress I originally loved. This showed that Donna was not focused on selling the most expensive dress, but on helping me find the best dress for my needs. I also received $100 off the price because it was during a trunk show (even though my dress was not that designer’s), which was even better. As for Athena’s Bridal in general, I would recommend the store for its wide selection and reasonable prices. While other stores may lure you in with champagne, a fancy location and pinterest chalk boards, Athena’s excels where it truly matters, in selection, price and most of all, customer service
Donna was so amazing. I had just went to David’s bridal (horrible experience) then stopped in at Athena’s! So glad I did, I tried on 3 dresses loved them all picked the 3rd. She worked with my budget and was extremely helpful. 5 stars!
Iris was the best customer service I’ve had since Dress shopping. She was not pushy and listened to my style. Every dress she pulled for me, I genually liked. I’ve look around to a couple more places and this one was the best experience I’ve had by far.
Athena’s was the first bridal shop we went to, after we traveled on to at least 5 others. Athena’s was by far the best shop! Customer service was outstanding. They took their time with us and there was no PRESSURE at all! Their dress selection was amazing and we ended up buying the very first dress the bride tried on. The dress was on display in the window our first trip to the shop, they did not hesitate to take it off the manikin for us. Thank you Athena’s for your part in making this special day even better.
Donna at Athena’s took amazing care of us when we stepped into the salon ! I brought my fiancé and youngest son with me and she was so sweet to all of us upon arrival . She carefully went through all the gowns and picked a beautiful selection that fit the description of what I was looking for . She carefully listened to what I was looking for and was not pushy in any way . She took her time with me and didn’t rush me either . I ended up falling completely in LOOOOVE with the last dresss I tried on . My son and fiance were so excited, they loved the dress too! My son kept say , “Its perfect, it’s perfect!!” I am really looking forward to wearing my Morie Lee gown! I could not believe the price of the gown was so shockingly affordable , I really never thought I would be able to find such a gorgeous gown in that price range ! Make sure you make a trip to Athena’s when you are shopping for your wedding gown . You will not be disappointed!
Loved shopping for my wedding dress here spent about 30 minutes and found the perfect one. They worked with my mom on a way to pay for the dress. The ladies were so nice and felt so homely.
Two of my friends recommended I check out Athena’s boutique and I am so happy I did! Gina was fantastic to work with and I’m absolutely in love with the dress she helped me find. I thought I knew what I wanted and she helped me narrow down my choices even more. I will continue to pass their information along to any future brides! I loved my experience there!
Donna was absolutely amazing! I first visited the store in March, and it was my very first time trying on bridal gowns. Donna was so helpful and explained everything I needed to know about dresses and answered every little crazy question I had. I told her what I wanted and she picked out the dress of my dreams, actually 2 of them! I left that day loving 2 dresses. I came back in May and tried on those 2 dresses and just knew the one was the dress! Donna was so helpful from beginning to end! I am so thankful for the experience that I had. She is definitely the very best and I would highly recommend. And to add, I drove 2.5 hours one way just because she’s that awesome! 🙂
Donna was absolutely wonderful! She listened to what I wanted and helped me find THE DRESS!
The staff at Athen’s Bridal are the best. They are very helpful whether you are picking out a wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses. Gina was so sweet she was able to help calm down my nerves when dealing with my mother. They were able to accommodate my bridesmaids and flower girl all at the same time as well as helping me pick out a wedding dress. The listened to my knees and what I was looking for in a dress as well as my bridesmaids. I would recommend them to anyone.
From the moment that I walked into the door, Donna made me feel so comfortable! I went to Athena’s Bridal for the Casablanca Bridal Trunk show, and left with an Allure Romance dress. Although it was a truck show, Donna treated it like a normal appointment, and I was able to try on a variety of dresses. The appointment overall was a low pressure one, where I felt great with every decision and feeling I was having. I am so happy that I said yes to the dress at Athena’s Bridal!
Donna made my experience awesome I’m happy with the service me and my party had there would recommend this place to people
Great service! Very happy with the staff and he’ll I received.
I am a 2nd time bride and in my 40’s. I went to Athena’s and worked with Gina who was fantastic. I am not a size 4 and that was no problem for Gina. I fell in love with the Sophia Tolli dresses and Gina helped me find the perfect one for me. I could not be happier and I will be making a statement when I walk down the aisle. Thank you Gina for the experience and making the experience what every bride wants.
Donna was fantastic! I went in there thinking I knew what I wanted, once I tried on the style of dress, I was dissapointed in the way it looked on my body. I started getting overwhelmed because I didn’t really have a plan B on what I wanted. Donna took care of everything and made sure that I found the dress that looked perfect on me.
I found my dream dress here thanks to Athena’s comfortable atmosphere, beautiful selection, and the patience and expertise of my consultant, Donna! She encouraged me to try on a gown I never would have picked for myself and the result was amazing – it was perfect! I’m so glad I found Athena’s, and would recommend it to any bride hoping for a personal, magical shopping experience.
Athena’s was the very first place I went to. I had a great experience but thought that it was just how it was going to go everywhere I went. Turns out, that’s way wrong. I went out 4 different times and each time going to 2-3 places. Athena’s had the best customer service out of all of them. I went back to Athena’s for a 2nd time to try on this dress I had in my mind as no other dress could compete. Donna ended up showing me another dress on sale from a trunk show which made my decision a little harder (in a good way). She didn’t pressure me whatsoever even though it was busy and there was a lot going on. She made sure that I was comfortable the whole time and handled others who came with me and their opinions very well. She offered for me to come in a 3rd time when it wasn’t so busy so I didn’t have to feel rushed making the decision. I couldn’t say enough nice things about Donna and Athena’s. I’m extremely happy with my experience and would do it all over again there.
Gina from Athenas bridal shop was so extremely helpful! I found my perfect wedding dress and veil and she made the experience a joy! I recommend going to Athenas bridal shop and seeing Gina if you want high quality service and someone who will help you find everything you are looking for!
I adore Athena’s Bridal and the excellent service I received from Gina and Donna. I went dress shopping by myself the first time for various family health reasons, so I was nervous and apprehensive to try on anything. As soon as I met with Gina she went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. She’s so wonderful! I went to a few other “fancy” salons in Tampa just to compare and be sure I found the right one. And I received lots of attention, but none of the warmth and caring I found with Athena’s. Not only did I love the dress the most, it was my favorite bridal salon I visited.
I would recommend Athena’s to any potential bride or for a special event. I found the most gorgeous Mori Lee dress for a reasonable price and I’m beyond excited to wear it! It is GORGEOUS. Though I’ve yet to receive the dress (the time frame is normal) I’m sure they will continue to deliver a quality experience, I’ll write an update when all is completed. Thank you Athena’s for making this process so wonderful!
Iris was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable with the whole selection process. She listened to what I was wanting and stayed in my price range. She was able to bring at least 8 different dresses for me. I love how her main focus was with me and not being distracted by other customers. We were able to narrow it down to two different dresses when I came in the first time. She wrote down the two dresses and kept it on file. I was able to come back the next weekend and try those two on again for my parents and then I was able to finally make the decision. I said “Yes, to the dress” and the other employees were very supportive and excited for me. I would recommend this store to every girl looking for a wedding dress.
I was referred to Athena’s by a friend and she definitely steered me in the right direction. I got an appt the same day and to my surprise found my dress at the first visit. It was actually the first store I went to. Donna was great! She listened to my thoughts about what I liked but I was willing to go outside the box. With her help I found the most amazing dress and could not thank her more. I’m looking forward to all my future dealings with her and Athena’s!
Iris was my consultant here, and she was an absolute joy to work with. My mother and I shopped together, and she provided advice and feedback, but also let us have some mother-daughter time to talk about the dresses. I ended up with a beautiful dress for a very reasonable price, but all the dresses here are gorgeous and reasonably priced.
As I’m from a small island I flew to Florida to look for my bridal gown. Athenas was found over the Internet and I’m so happy I found them! Originally I called and booked an afternoon appointment but on the morning of I decided an earlier time would better suit me. Luckily Gina was available and I was seem right away. My Thursday appointment was fabulous as I was the only one in the bridal room and had undivided attention. After figuring out my style several dresses were pulled or me and I find dress i loved! Since it was my first time trying on dresses I wanted to still give another boutique or two a chance. Gina never pushed me to make a decision rather she told me I needed to be sure! The next day after going to a different salon I was even more sure of my Athenas dress choice. I returned on Saturday and retried my dress with Gina. (The shop was busier and there was one other bride to be there but the experience was still great!) Noe i can’t wait to return back to Florida in a few months to pick up my dress!
I also was able to order bridesmaids dresses throught Gina who was also great at helping me find sizes for my girls who couldn’t visit the store but sent along measurements! Gina truly made the whole day easier!
I went into Athena’s and got the warmest and best experience ever! Gina was the one that helped me and she did an amazing job! She helped me find what I was looking for and I am absolutely satisfied! All of the ladies there were absolutely awesome and very informational. I highly recommend Athena’s to anyone for bridal or prom needs! I’m so excited for my wedding day!!!
Athena’s bridal was amazing from the searching of the dress down to picking the dress and alterations. They were very easy to communicate with and were very responsive to any requests that I had. The dress turned out to be absolutely perfect! There alterations team were on point and did a fantastic job!
After putting on more accessories, sharing more tears, taking pictures, I finally said yes to the dress!
Every girl dreams of the moment when she says “YES TO THE DRESS!” My mom traveled from Michigan to Florida to help me find my perfect dress. We were on a time crunch of 2 days. The first day we went to 3 boutiques and our day ended in tears at my house. We had an awful experience at a boutique that just ruined our day. The next morning we arrived at Athena’s Bridal Boutique at 10:00am when they opened. The experience was amazing from the moment we walked in. We did not have an appointment, but they welcomed us with open arms. We gave them our budget and they stuck to it. They had a Mori Lee Trunk Show going on and they pulled 3 dresses for me to try on. I put the first dress on and when I walked out my mom and our consultant were both in tears. I felt like a princess! After putting on more accessories, sharing more tears, taking pictures, I finally said yes to the dress! We ended our experience hugging and laughing, which is exactly how I wanted to. To make my experience even better, I received a Thank You card in the mail a few weeks later thanking me for coming to Athena’s Bridal Boutique and expressing how much they enjoyed us there. I HIGHLY recommend Athena’s for any Bride looking for a wonderful experience and a beautfiul dress.
Great place! Donna quickly identified my style and pulled dresses that matched my style with ease! She was really knowledgable and could explain the various aspects of each dress I tried on. The wide selection of dresses and high quality of service lead me to choose my PERFECT DRESS! Thank you Athena’s Bridal!!!
Oh Dona… She is an amazing person. I went to tryout wedding dresses. And I was feeling so sad because I was by myself. My mom lives in a different state. Not only that I felt very insecure with my body because I had lost so much weight and I wasn’t sure what to pick as of choice of style of dress that would suit me. Dona just made me feel so secure. And very welcomed. Like family. And found the perfect dress for me. Needless to say I thought I couldn’t never pull off a mermaid dress! But I did! Lol! Dona understood my needs. And exactly what I was looking for. I am forever grateful to her. Thank you so much!
I highly recommend shopping for a wedding dress at Athena’s Bridal Boutique. All the ladies are extremely helpful and very pleasant. The alterations department is equally pleasant and a joy to work with.
Athena’s bridal is absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend going to Athena’s if you are looking for the perfect wedding dress. Iris was so helpful and patience. She knew exactly what I was looking for, in fact I said yes to the hospital 3rd dress! I had the best experience with Athena’s bridal! Everyone there was so nice and so helpful! Thank you Athena’s for making my day perfect!
Gina was fantastic! ! I went into the shop not even sure of what dress I was going to get. Price and service were Excellent and I couldn’t have asked for anything more 🙂
Donna quickly learned my style and knew what I would like and wouldn’t like! I felt very comfortable to work with her and the prices are great!
Gina is an amazing consultant who really listened to what I wanted while also taking into account the preferences of my accompanying mom, grandma, and aunt. She was flexible, patient, and supportive of my vision and helpful in educating me of the practical implications of choosing one dress over another. Ultimately, she helped me find the perfect dress for a great deal 🙂
I bought my wedding dress at Athena’s Bridal Boutique and I’m so glad that I did. I had the pleasure of working with Iris, who let me tell you is such an awesome woman. She is a person who feels like you’ve known for a long time and who is your friend. She is that person that you imagine having as your person when choosing and buying a wedding dress. She is so sweet, funny and caring. Athena’a Bridal Boutique was the only place on the West Coast of Florida who had my wedding dress! They have lots of good variety of wedding dresses to choose from! : )
The were so accommodating to my self and my bride. We went shopping together and they helped us find the perfect dress for each of us and ones that’s complimented each other. They were sweet, uplifting , non judgemental and full of enthusiasm!! They also worked with us on our budget which was great being we bought two dresses! I would highly recommend them to any one looking for any type of dress they were absolutely fantastic! We are so thankful we found them and they were willing to work with us !!!!
We went to Athena’s Bridal after going to David’s Bridal, and it was such a worthwhile trip. My daughter was getting married in just two month, and we only had about 40 minutes that day to find a dress. The girl who helped us (Brenda) was awesome. I showed her a photo of the type of dress we were after, and she pulled the perfect dress immediately (along with others in my budget). We ended up getting an exquisitely beaded Maggie Sottero gown for just a little more than a dress we’d tried at David’s Bridal (non-designer).
But where this boutique really shined was in the alterations! My daughter wanted it slightly customized on the top, and a bustle added. The seamstress was flawless and the gown fit her PERFECTLY. It’s actually a shame I can’t upload pictures here because she was worthy of a magazine cover. Just stunning!
I had a wonderful experience at Athena’s. I picked my wedding dress with the help of Donna. She is very helpful.
I went to one other bridal shop before stopping here. I felt very rushed and pushed into a dress at the other shop I went to. I made an appointment with Athena’s. When I arrived at the shop we had time to look around before the appointment started. Iris was my consultant and she was AMAZING! She made me feel comfortable and didn’t rush me. She picked out a dress that she thought that best suited what I was looking for. I was skeptical about the dress at first but once I put it on I completely fell in love with the dress. Iris did an amazing job at finding the dress that best suited my ideas! I definitely recommend this shop to anyone and I will be coming back to look for bridesmaids dresses here!
Athena’s Bridal Boutique is awesome! Donna was extremely helpful, attentive, and honest. I’m so glad my wedding planner found this boutique and that my wedding dress was there! I Wouldn’t trade the experience at all.
Found my dress my first day looking. When I walked into the store without an appointment, they fit me in. They were kind, respectful, and very helpful.
Gina was so helpful with helping me find my perfect dress, I was looking for something unique and in a style that would look amazing in. She did just that!. I love Athena’s!
Donna and the staff at Athena’s Bridal went above and beyond to help me find the perfect wedding dress. She was attentive and knowledgeable. Donna took my opinion and what I was looking for into account when selecting gowns for me to try on. She offered options for alterations to make it my dream dress! The pricing is awesome and I cannot wait to see it fitted!
This is based on my first visit to Athena’s. I found my dress! I will post again once my dress arrives and my alterations happen. I will say I was concerned about finding a dress on a very tight budget. Donna was completely confident that we would…she was right! She was also very reassuring and tuned into what I was after very quickly.
I would highly recommend Gina. She was very knowledgeable about the different vendors. She also listened to what i wanted and obliged from the start. Great service!
Gina was wonderful in helping me and my aunt when we decided to come in and try on dresses on a whim. The attention she provided us and making sure that I was completely satisfied with the dress was more than I could have imagined or asked for. So grateful to her for helping me find the dress of my dreams
Donna was awesome showing me dresses and really made it fun for me.
This was the ONLY store in the area that carried the dress i wanted. I am so thrilled that it was this store. It is a privately owned store with sweet women inside ready to help and assist. Gina made looking my dress, altering my dress, and finding what works for me easy. All the staff was wonderful and I got my dream dress!
Donna at Athena’s Bridal helped me to find my dress this past Sunday during a trunk show and was wonderful to work with. I made an appointment earlier in the week and Donna was able to accommodate me within a few days of my call.
During the appointment, Donna took some info regarding the type of dresses I wanted to try on and my budget. Donna was very understanding about my budget and never pressured me to try on dresses that were too expensive, even when a few caught my eye. While I tried on dresses, Donna helped me to figure out which style and fabric I ultimately preferred and never rushed me. She gave enough feedback to be helpful, but never pushy. One of the last dresses I tried on was a beautiful mermaid gown which was at the top of my price range and I was almost ready to purchase it, but Donna looked through the store one last time to find a dress meeting my preferences. She ultimately found a similar dress way under my budget that was more beautiful and flattering than the dress I originally loved. This showed that Donna was not focused on selling the most expensive dress, but on helping me find the best dress for my needs. I also received $100 off the price because it was during a trunk show (even though my dress was not that designer’s), which was even better. As for Athena’s Bridal in general, I would recommend the store for its wide selection and reasonable prices. While other stores may lure you in with champagne, a fancy location and pinterest chalk boards, Athena’s excels where it truly matters, in selection, price and most of all, customer service.
Donna was so amazing. I had just went to David’s bridal (horrible experience) then stopped in at Athena’s! So glad I did, I tried on 3 dresses loved them all picked the 3rd. She worked with my budget and was extremely helpful. 5 stars!
Iris was the best customer service I’ve had since Dress shopping. She was not pushy and listened to my style. Every dress she pulled for me, I genually liked. I’ve look around to a couple more places and this one was the best experience I’ve had by far.
This was the first bridal boutique I had been to to find a wedding dress, and it ended up being the only one I needed. The ladies were warm and welcoming, and they treated me as if I was the only bride there. I fell in love with the first dress, but all of them were well within my price range. I would most definitely recommend this boutique to any bride getting married in the Tampa Bay area.
Iris was so sweet and she helped me find the perfect wedding dress for my big, special day!
I had the BEST time Athena’s. I spent hours and hours researching reviews and where to go to look for my wedding dress. I had 4 appointments scheduled and never went anywhere past Athena’s. Donna was my consultant and she was AMAZING. She knew exactly what would look good on me and knew just what dresses to pull. I was worried I wouldn’t find anything I liked and ended up liking 8 or 9 dresses. I finally had it narrowed down to 2 that I loved and Donna was so patient and gave her honest professional opinion as I tried them both on 3 more times each lol. Finally, I knew which was “the one” and bought it! I highly, highly recommend Donna and Athena’s Bridal Boutique! The prices were also very excellent as well and for top quality gowns!
I visited a few other bridal boutiques before Athenas. Athenas was by far my best experience! Donna was amazing and so helpful! She was so patient and made me feel at ease in finding my dress.
We went to many different places. Since my mother and grandmother flew in from out of state we only had a couple days to find a dress together. Athena’s was the last place we went to, but it should have been the first. They had many dresses in my price range and were so welcoming and friendly!! With dress shopping being soooo stressful they really know how to put you at easy and make it seem simple!
When searching for a Mother of the Bride dress, I emailed different bridal shops to find a specific dress that I was interested in. I received a response from Athenas Bridal Boutique that they had the dress for me to try on. Upon arriving, I was greeted by Donna. I have never encountered such an excellent salesperson. She immediately showed me the dress I came for and I didn’t like it. She then was able to make suggestions which were tailored to someone of my shape and size. I purchased a dress completely different than what I set out to purchase and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks to Donna I found the perfect dress. I would highly recommend going to Athena’s Bridal Boutique and asking for Donna. Kim Marone
Donna was a dream! This place has all of the current dresses and the service is truly the best. The quality of the dresses here blows David’s Bridal out of the water! The pricing is great and right in line with other places I have checked out. If you are within 50 miles of Clearwater check it out!
Iris and the rest of the staff at Athena’s are wonderful! Not to mention they seriously have the largest selection of beautiful and high quality gowns of any bridal shop I looked at around the Bay area. I definitely recommend them to any bride looking for a beautiful wedding dress 🙂 There was no pressure at all and I was able to visit the shop several times to show my potential dress to visiting family members and to eventually try several dresses on when my mom finally came in from out of state. They are the BEST and I cannot wait to see how everything comes out after alterations!
Athena’s Bridal has a spectacular selection of wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses! Everyone there is so friendly and helpful! I loved working with Gina to find “the dress.” She also helped me pick out bridesmaid dresses and provided helpful insight! She is the best 🙂
This place made my wedding dress shopping a breeze. I knew what I was looking for and they provided me with my best options. They were very professional and met my needs in every way!
Love Donna! She was so amazing in her choices and worked really well with my prices, thank you Donna
Donna was absolutely amazing. From The time I walked in to the time I walked out I felt completely at home like it was my own mother helping me into dresses. She gives you her honest opinion and knows exactly what you as the bride is looking for.
I first went to Athenas Bridal when I got married in 2015.. since the beginning Donna was amazing! She made sure you felt comfortable, listen to what you wanted and gave you some advice, she was truly amazing. when My bf got married 2016 I knew we had to go to Athenas with Donna again, and now 2017 my dear sister gets married this Saturday and you guessed it..!
Athenas was the place to go. with such greatvariety and great customer service this place in a gem in Clearwater. Ms.Donna and the other girls are fantastic at what they do.
I worked with Iris and she was very helpful.
Donna was fantastic! She was very considerate of my budget and found me the perfect Maggie Sotterro gown.
Donna is very pleasant. She made me feel comfortable and she was genuine.
I got my gown at Athena’s and was helped by Iris. She was so professional. She really listened to what I wanted and found my dream dress. I was very happy with alterations and Donna was always helpful and a pleasure. I love the specialized boutique feel of this store. I highly recommend.
Donna was very nice, listened, was attentive and made me feel very comfortable 🙂 Very happy to have found my dress at Athena’s.
I drove 4 hours to try on dresses at this store. Tried on maybe 5 dresses and ended up getting the one I loved! I was very happy with everything about Athenas!
Couldn’t say enough! True professionalism! Listening skills! Catered to my daughter’s schedule! Even helped me to surprise my daughter with the veil of her dreams! Alterations were a breeze! Easy to bustle too! Held onto the dress until the day of the wedding, helped me load it up for the trip to the church. Matched the shoes for her too!
Athena’s was where I began my dress search. Gina matched several dresses to the style I was envisioning, but she has an eye and showed me something I wouldn’t have thought I could pull off. She was not pushy when I wanted to wait. I went to two other boutiques and could only compare to that dress. We chose to return to Athena’s to work with the shop. They were wonderful. Gina was unavailable, but Donna assisted me with my second visit. My dress arrived when it was supposed to and my mom even found her mother of the bride dress. The ladies in alterations were great. Everyone at the shop is like family. Always so welcoming, it felt like I have a whole family of aunts! I highly recommend Athena’s for a wonderful, personal experience. They have experience and know what they’re doing!
Donna was so personable and helpful. Athenas bridal works with tons of designer. My gown is made by Sophia Tolli and has yet to come in but im sure its going to be beautiful.
Donna is absolutely great! Not pushy … very helpful … and most importantly, honest. I can’t wait to pick up my dress in April!
This is by far the best place to buy a dress! I went all over Tampa area and was tired of consultants telling me what I should do instead of what I wanted. I met Donna here and she was great! I had a picture of a dress and was not going to settle until I found it to try on. Although they didn’t have it, Donna told me how to find it and offered to better the price if I ordered it from her. Well, after searching all over the state…I found it in Miami. I actually drove there, tried it on and it was the one! Donna worked with me on ordering it and making a few minor changes. They are very organized, know exactly what has to be done and when which is great when you are planning the wedding yourself. I would highly recommend Athena’s
Athena’s Bridal provided a wonderful and personal experience for me and my bridesmaids in our search for the perfect dresses. When I arrived at Athena’s Bridal, I knew exactly what dress I wanted and my dress expert Gina suggested that I try on a dress that had everything I hated about wedding dresses and guess what- that was the one I ended up buying! They know exactly what they are doing and how to match dresses to each individual. I would recommend Athena’s Bridal to anyone looking for a bridal shop that cares more about you and your needs than the sale.
The staff was great!!! Athena’s was the first shop I tried on gowns, I went in on a Thursday evening and Donna was my lady! She was so helpful, she practically let me try on every gown in the shop! When I thought I found the one,there was ZERO pressure to buy!!
I checked out a few more shops and let me tell you, my experience with others weren’t as great with Donna!
I went back to Athena’s to purchase the ONE and they were very quick with deliver and alterations- the whole staff was friendly and professional!
When I called to ask questions, they even knew my last name … I also purchased brides maid dresses with them. I definitely have recommended Athena’s bridal to my friends!
I was very skeptical because some of the ratings I had read, but they do a FINE job there !
I had a great experience at Athena’s Bridal. Donna was very helpful.
Donna was amazing. She really helped me pick out an amazing dress. They have a wide variety of dresses and she tried them all on me. I felt like I could try on every dress in the store and Donna would have been fine with that!! It was like I was shopping with a friend or something!!
Donna was EXCELLENT!!!!!! I didn’t really have a great idea of what type of dress I was looking for. Donna pulled out several dressed that she felt would look great on me. the first dress she pulled out of the bag was a style I had never tried before and I certainly didn’t think it would work for me. BOY WAS I WRONG. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. The best part was that it was several hundred dollars cheaper than what I expected it to be. Donna went the extra mile an took pictures of me in the dress so that I could share with my bridesmaids and mother. Donna gave me her complete attention and time. She didn’t rush me or try to persuade me into making a decision. I am grateful that I made the choice to visit this store and even more grateful to have Donna assist me.
I was a walk in and most snobby bridal places dont fit you in but Athenas did. I didnt like any of the dresses so I found one online and they quickly got a color swatch for me. I still wasnt sure with the sample so they had a loaner shipped to the store in less than a week! It was the dress. I dont ever buy from a store unless the organization has the best customer service. I visited 5 tampa bridal shops and 5 st. Pete shops, Athenas is by far the best and soooooo down to earth. I appreciate a great place with great customer service to make spending over $1,000 just a little less nerve wracking 😉
I found my bridesmaid dresses and wedding gown here! Everyone at Athena’s Bridal is super friendly and helpful. They make sure that you are happy and you find what you are looking for. The ladies also make sure that the measurements are correct to ensure the best fit for you and your girls for the special day. They could all answer any questions I had and could direct me when I needed help – they definitely know what they’re doing! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience at a bridal shop, and the prices were affordable too. My matron-of-honor bought her wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses here almost 7 years ago, and I’m glad that I followed in her footsteps. I can’t wait to refer my friends and family to Athena’s when it’s their turn. Thank you Athena’s Bridal for being a part of my wedding!
Very helpful! I worked with Donna and she went above and beyond for me to get my dream dress. Would recommend this vendor to everyone!
This was our third stop in the hunt for a bridal gown and I wish it would have been the first! They had many gown options and more than just the sample size, which was very nice! Donna was very patient and helpful the day I found my dress. The alterations department was also great! I picked the heaviest and most difficult dress to bustle and yet they were so patient and meticulous in making the dress perfect for me. I can’t thank the team enough! I even went back to be measured for a bridesmaid dress that was being ordered out of state and they said no problem. Very helpful! Great group of ladies!
Donna was so helpful with the entire process. She worked with the buget I told her and picked the perfect dress for me. She made everything so easy and I’m glad I went to Athena’s.
I went to 5 different bridal boutique before going to Athena’s. I tried on about 6 dresses and fell in love with one. Donna was amazing. She helped me pick out my perfect dress. Athena’s has a wide variety of dresses to choose from. I am very happy with my choice and happy I was able to stay under my budget. Thank you Donna!!
Iris was very helpful in finding my wedding dress. The first dress I tried on was the one. She had me try on a few other so I knew that the first one was it. She did a fabulous job!
Donna is amazing! She made finding my wedding dress stres free and fun!
I selected the 3rd dress I put on! I knew right away it was the dress for me! It made me feel like a bride, but also sexy and comfortable! Donna was so helpful in selecting dresses for me and the dress I said yes to! My mom, niece and I had so much fun at Athena’s. The alterations seemed a bit much for just a hem and minor take in to the straps. Thank you for making me look and feel like a princess!
Help me find my beautiful dress and help me to make it into THE dress with a lace top customization! Completed the custom work with incredible speed and precision! They do AHmazing work and have a beautiful selection.
I selected my dress in January of this year and have been dreaming about it ever since! Picking the dress was an excellent experience because of the wonderful ladies who work there – especially Donna. She was so encouraging, supportive, and knew exactly what would flatter my figure and also suit my personality. I just had my first fitting this week, and I can’t wait to wear my dress in two months! The prices are also excellent, and they carry unique dresses and styles with high quality fabrics.
I absolutely love this boutique, they were amazing when it came to finding me the perfect dress. They listened to what I wanted and took everything I said and showed me exactly what I wanted. It wasn’t until Gina ask me if she could put me in a dress that she thought would compliment my figure that I found my wedding dress. They are professional, take pride in making sure everyone that comes in has a great experience. I would highly recommended them to anyone looking to find a dress.
Came in here just to look around and not expecting to find my dress that day. And I actually ended up choosing the first dress Donna suggested! It’s unique, quality, and perfect for my wedding.
And may I add I searched high and low before coming here.
I had a great experience at Athena’s Bridal and my gown was absolutely gorgeous!
Working with Donna was a pleasure! She was super helpful and gave me honest feedback on each dress I tried. She found me the perfect dress and I couldn’t have been happier!
I just bought my dream dress today and I am so extremely pleased with the service here! I always thought I would never be able to afford a dress from here until we just stopped in to ask a few questions after a HORRID experience with David Bridal (do yourself a huge favor and don’t even waste your time with that place) and we found a perfect dress that was $200 LESS than what we were going to spend at Davids! Donna was such a pleasure to work with and made me feel so comfortable and most important stress free!!! She was there with me to answer any questions I had and help me into dresses and was so sweet! Everyone here does such an amazing job and you can tell they genuinely care for each of their brides!!!
Gina was amazing! I was not really looking to hard as my whole party was not with me and we were just driving by but she made sure I found EXACTLY what I wanted! Such a nice little shop with Great service and I couldn’t have been more pleased.
Athenas is professional, caring and a joy to shop for your wedding. The staff is friendly and especially Donna is recommended. She is genuine and truly passionate about helping you find the perfect dress and accessories.
Donna at Athena’s is amazing! I was having a rough time finding the right dress but she was always there to suggest alternatives. Donna was a joy to work with and was very accommodating. The seamstresses were also very knowledgable and were very helpful especially since I was by myself for every dress fitting. I highly recommend making an appointment with Donna at Athena’s Bridal Boutique!
I can not thank Donna enough! Athena’s was amazing! I tried to go to David’s bridal after leaving Athena’s and I was so disappointed at David’s bridal. I love love love Athena’s, found my perfect dress for the perfect price
Although I did not purchase my bridal gown or any of my bridal party gowns at Athena’s Bridal I still have to give them a major shout out. Every time I went in to Athena’s I was greeted so graciously and genuinely. I did visit their store several times since I was interested in a couple of bridesmaid’s dresses but unfortunately the colors and materials I needed I couldn’t find in the same dress. If they had the color I liked I didn’t like the material and if I liked the material then I didn’t like the color. It was one of those moments that I wanted so badly to find something I liked and be able to make a purchase in their store. They were just so helpful and knowledgeable. Gina was an absolute sweetheart and so patient with me even though I never purchased anything from them. I had a great customer service experience. They have beautiful gowns for reasonable prices. I only wish they would have had my colors.
I said yes to the dress! I worked with Donna on Saturday when I visited Athena’s with my godmother, cousins and maid of honor. We were the last appointment of the day, so we had her undivided attention.
Even though I walked in with a very specific dress in mind (I knew the store didn’t carry it), Donna took a look at it and immediately started pulling dress she thought may be comparable. She was methodical, going around the room pulling specific gowns. At one point, my cousin and I exchanged glances because it was clear Donna was a woman on a mission!
My group had a great time, Donna conversed easily with all of them as she ushered me in and out in the different gowns. The first 2 were beautiful and after I tried on a handful, we went back into the second dress. I was concerned because it was similar to the dress I’d already had in my head so we brought the pictures back out and compared side by side. I couldn’t stop staring at the beadwork in the mirror, and imagining how bright and shiny the dress will be for my spring beach-side wedding. That was it! She had me at “strapless modified sweetheart!”
It was a very sweet and special moment, and all the ladies in the store were very outgoing and friendly with my group. Being Greek myself, I love that I found my dress at Athena’s, and I can’t wait for my big, fat, Greek wedding!
Gina was so helpful in picking out the right dress for me. I got so many compliments on my dress. The price was very reasonable. I also got my veil at Athena’s and I loved it as well. great selection and very helpful friendly staff
I worked with Donna, She was wonderful. I was able to try on all the dresses that I wanted to and I ended up picking the first dress that I tried on which she happened to pick out for me. Everyone was pleasant and I never felt rushed.
I found the dress of my dreams at Athena’s! I could not have been happier with my dress and the way that it turned out!
I would recommend Athena’s Bridal to any and every bride. From the moment I walked in and meeting Donna, to the seamstress I have been completely satisfied. I made an order and changed my mind that night. Donna was able to happily catch and update the order. Donna was up front and honest about fees and their prices beat other local boutiques. I’m one of those who will shop around for best customer service and price. After visiting CC’s, Jon’s, and 5 other places, Athena’s delivered in every aspect. I will continue to spread the word for best customer service in the Tampa Bay area!!!
Donna eith Athens Bridal is great. She helped me pick out my dream dress and was there from the beginning until the week before my wedding when I picked up my dress. I even loved the nice thank you she mailed to me after I purchased the dress
Just the right place to go for all your bridal requirements. They’re good ad they have a huge collection of various stuff.
I got my wedding dress from Athena’s. They were really easy to work with. Donna really gave my mom and myself a nice trying on experience. They had a nice selection and really reasonable prices. I only had my first alteration done there and they did it rush and did a great job. It was definitely the place to go if you want personalized attention/ intimate dress experience.
I got my complete accessories from here and some personal clothing as well. The consultants were very polite and pleasant to deal with
They are very courteous, kind and helpful, They understand your requirement and are dedicated to customer service. Thanks for the wonderful dresses for my wife and the bridesmaids. Surely recommended!!
I was very impressed with the style selection of wedding gowns. The dress was received in a timely fashion and was relatively true to the size selected. I just want to encourage everyone that orders a dress to be sure to include their measurements; as I did not, and the end result was I had to work out diligently for one month just to fit in it, BUT, in the end I did. To top it off, I was extremely delighted with the price!
Gina, Thank you so much for all of your caring and compassionate customer service. You always made me feel confident. Things would work out with my dress even when I was doubtful they would!! You are truly amazing at what you do. Thank you!!
Very affordable! Very sweet people. Was very accommodating to all my needs. Alterations were fanatastic. They were sweet and made wonders with alterations on my wedding dress. Love this place!
My gown was absolutely gorgeous and the ladies at Athena’s are so helpful and sweet. I worked with Donna to get the dress – she was a doll! And their seamstress is AMAZING!
Thank you so much for making my experience at your boutique so memorable. Donna was so helpful and really made me feel like such a special bride. My dress was absolutely stunning and exactly what I wanted. The alterations turned out amazing and I couldn’t have felt more beautiful then I did on my wedding day! Thank you!
The dress I got at Athena’s is amazing. I went back and fourth between two trying it on three different occasions, Athena’s was by far the more flexible vendor, I never felt pressure from them to buy the dress. My sales consultant Gina was an angel through the whole process.
The staff at Athena’s were wonderful! They were so helpful with everything and made finding THE dress easy! Also, they are very skilled at alterations and the dress was perfect!
My dress was beautiful ! Everyone at Athena’s was great!
Athena’s Bridal is amazing! From Donna, the bridal consultant to the alterations, they made it so easy to get the dress I wanted! The service was fantastic every time I went in to see them, even when they were busy! My dress was a Maggie Sottero dress, that was fantastic! The alterations were perfect, and made the dress fit like it was designed for me.
Athena’s bridal, Gina, and the seamstress were awesome! I received top notch service from beginning to end! I ordered my wedding dress and bridesmaid’s dresses from them. My wedding dress arrived nearly 3 inches too short an error made by the dress maker. Gina acted quickly to get the error corrected. She put me at ease and made me feel confident that I would get my dress back corrected from the dress maker in time. None of my bridesmaids were local and Athena’s was wonderful with working with all of them to place their orders for their dresses over the phone etc. I even called a few times to check on the status of my girls paying for their dresses etc. and they were very accommodating each time I called. The seamstress was also very nice to work with. The quality of her work is amazing and the cost wasn’t overpriced in my opinion.
Athena’s was great. I worked with Donna, she was very attentive and followed my dress journey from purchase to wedding day. I thought the prices were reasonable and alterations were affordable too. I found my perfect dress and it was within my price range including alterations. I also liked that I didn’t have to pay for the entire dress right away, the cost was broken down from ordering to picking up.
Donna was great. She was very patient while I tried on at least every dress they had to offer. She wrote me the sweetest thank you card after our wedding. It was a great experience buying my dress at Athena’s Bridal.
Gina is AMAZING! After going to a few other shops, this was our last chance to find a dress the weekend my mother came to visit. Gina was sooo helpful and really put into perspective what was important….how I felt about the dress. If I loved it, I was going to feel like a princess. She brought out a dress that she said she’d love to see her own daughter get married in….and well, it was PERFECT! I’m so glad we happened to stop in and give their selection a look. They are not overpriced like a lot of other places in the Tampa area…yet they still give you the one on one service you would expect when you’re dropping money on a gown that you want to love the rest of your life. The alterations at Athena’s were great too and we cannot thank your team enough! 😉 I’ll definitely recommend Athena’s to anyone getting married
I had found the dress I wanted (Cassablanca 2017) when I was up north for Thanksgiving. When I returned home, I searched for stores that had that dress. When I entered Athena’s I was greeting by Gina. I had told her the dress I wanted and she gave me a price that was $600 cheaper than up north! It was BEAUTIFUL. Everything was done with the highest quality. Gina was very friendly and helpful. I was able to order the dress, get fitted, and pick up the dress with ease.
I worked with Donna at Athena’s Bridal to find my wedding dress. I felt like a princess each time I went to the shop for fittings. Donna helped me choose the perfect wedding dress, and I also ordered my bridesmaid dresses through Athen’as Bridal. All alterations on my dress and my bridesmaids’ dresses were done perfectly!
I truly enjoyed the experience of buying my dress from Athena’s. My associate, Gina, was so patient and made me feel as though I was the only bride in the store. Any time that I was in the boutique for a fitting she would check in with me and make sure that everything continued to go smoothly. I wish that I would have bought my bridesmaid’s dresses from this store!
I purchased my wedding dress from Athena’s bridal, with the help of consultant Joanne. They had one of the largest selections of Maggie Sottero dresses in the area, and their staff is extremely helpful and genuine. I worked with Joanne, who was so thoughtful, and guided me through the entire process. Their alterations department was a great help also, and kept adjusting until the dress was perfectly fit to me.
My daughter’s wedding dress was gorgeous! They were very accommodating in the fittings and addressed all of our concerns. We had visited a couple place prior to Athena’s. Athena’s had the “the dress and veil.”
The value of the dress was amazing but the alterations were almost as much as the dress. They had a great selection and were wonderful to work with.
Athena’s did a wonderful job of helping me find my dream gown! After 2 other appointments on the same day, I almost didn’t go to my last appointment at Athena’s. I am so happy I did however. After browsing the gowns and describing what I wanted, we had a few choices. One of which was the very last sample of a gown that could not be ordered again, and was far above my price range. I tried in on anyway, and not only did it fit perfectly, but they drastically reduced the price since it was the sample gown. I was sold!
Gina was so nice a helpful every time I called or came into the shop. She also helped me order my bridesmaid dresses, which happened to be a brand that Athena’s doesn’t even carry.
I wanted a few extra alterations on my dress, and the seamstress did a BEAUTIFUL job of what I wanted. The alterations were a little pricy, but I think that is to be expected from most bridal boutiques.
I received so many compliments on my dress and I felt so beautiful in it. The only downside is I can’t wear it again!
Athena’s Bridal made finding my wedding dress one of the most special days of my life. They were so much fun and helpful! They made me feel like a true princess!!!
I had a wonderful experience here. I loved my dress, got a wonderful deal, and great serivce.
I was very happy with my dress and my bridesmaid dresses from here. I worked with Gina, she was the best!!! They have some great dresses and Gina found the perfect dress for me- it was the 4th dress i tried on and perfect!
Gina helped me find the dress that was perfect for me! I had tried on numerous dresses at other stores without success…Gina found mine within minutes! The whole experience at Athena’s was pleasurable and I have no reservations in recommending them.
I was married on 10-10-10 and bought my dress form Gina at Athena’s. I originally bought a dress somewhere else and when it came in, it was terrible! I went to Athena’a for help and there was Gina:) I told her my situation and she was so understanding and promised me she would find me the dress of my dreams and she did!!!! I found my dress that day and it was perfect. She pulled some strings and had it rushed delivered. It came in and was perfect. Everyone at Athena’s treats you like a princess and makes you feel so beautiful/ My experience at Athena’s was exactly what I need to feel confident and like “A BRIDE” I highly recommend them. Ask for Gina!!
I previously went to every big name bridal shop in the Tampa Bay area and none compare to the honesty I received at Athena’s. Donna was right on point when she asked me what I was looking for and showed me dresses that completely fit my personality and the look I was going for. I seriously recommend this shop to any bride who has a little trouble deciding what looks good on her body type or for the “tom boy” who needs a little help getting the WOW factor right!!!! 🙂 I had the BEST experience and absolutely recommend this beautiful shoppe!! I don’t usually go out of my way to seek these types of review sites but I truly can’t say enough about Athena’s and want every bride to be out there to have the same enjoyable experience I had….because lets face it, that’s what it’s all about! Life’s short- enjoy it
I worked with JoAnn on picking out my dress and she was great!!! She was awesome with my family being there and really helped with finding my perfect wedding dress. It’s a smaller boutique so I really felt that I was getting all of the attention which helped with being able to decide. Alterations went really well and the girl helping did an awesome job. She was still pinning everything up to my final fitting. Looking at my wedding pictures now the dress was perfect and athenas was great at helping me find it.
I went to just about every boutique within a 50 mile radius and Athenas was by far the most helpful & enjoyable to go to. Gina was a lifesaver, and knew exactly what would look good on me. She was so nice and used all of her experience to help me find a dress that was perfect for me. There was no high pressure sales tactics, a great selection, and reasonable pricing. I would definitely recommend asking for Gina when making an appointment =)
I got so many compliments on my wedding dress, and it truely was amazing. Marie was the sales associate who helped me and she was just the best! When we found “the one”, she even cried with me and my mother. I had the best experience there and would reccomend that all brides try a store like Athena’s that provides a more intimate setting but has a wide selection of wedding gown designers.
Great customer service. My dress came in 2 months earlier than expected. I loved my dress!!! Athena’s was a pleasure to work with.
