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!
