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!
