DO NOT GO HERE. ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. AVOID THIS HEADACHE OF A PLACE AT ALL COSTS. I bought a grad dress a few months ago from their stock. I needed the back altered because the corset closing was not right for me. I was told the alterations would be free, even though the dress was on sale (30% off because it was in their stock sale). I asked to get it in writing on my receipt for the dress but was told that it wouldnt be any problem and to just come in 3 weeks before the grad to get it done. Sadly, I trusted them and didnt get it in writing. I decided to get it altered early so I went last month for my fitting for the alterations. I was told I would be charged. I explained what the first lady had told me. Then I was told that the FIRST LADY (the one who sold it to me) made a mistake by not speaking with the seamstress but proceeded to turn it into MY FAULT. I finally got my dress after the "alterations" but it has LOOSE THREADS, GLUE MARKS, AND AN UNEVEN BOTTOM, OVERALL EXTREMELY POORLY DONE!!! Before I bought the dress I inquired about how the uneven bottom would be taken care of. I was told if and when I got the corset alterations done, the seamstress would "clean up the bottom". I guess Im crazy because I thought this meant make it even, trim the tares, and leave it with a nice clean finish. NO APPARENTLY IT MEANS LEAVE IT DIRTY, TORN, AND UNEVEN ALL THE WAY AROUND. NEVER GO HERE.
We went here because we heard of a sale going on with dresses 40% off! We found a dress we liked, but when trying it on, found that the dress was uneven on the bottom, where it was about 2 inches shorter in the back. The lady said that after fixing this weird bump just below the zipper, the length would be fine. When we went back to have the alterations done, this other lady said that the alterations would not be free, and that the length might not be fixed. I was extremely mad. . I was super unimpressed, she then went on and accused us of lying because they would never agree to that, she accused us at least 4 times of lying about the other lady saing alterations would be free, but we wouldnt have bought the dress if the aleterations werent free for an imperfection in their dress. She then looked at the receipt that said we got the dress 50% off, our receipt saysd 40%. She basically said we shouldnt be complaining about paying for alterations when we got the dress for 50%.... I will NEVER go back, and strongly suggest nobody else does either.
All the wedding outfits at Athena couture are much beautiful. The collections are so beautiful and enough for customers that you don’t need to travel far located stores for beautiful dresses. The supportive staff is much aware and experienced they knew exactly what kind of dress design and fabric quality I needed. I have been to many other stores and have also experienced horrible services but Athena couture is one best store I would recommend to my all friends!!!

I was very disappointed with the way i received my dress after they altered it, I had glue marks showing in four different spots that they couldnt remove, they couldnt even clean it up properly and they had marks all over it. Would never go back there nor would i ever recommend it to anyone i know. Dont get me wrong though, there staff were very polite and they have lovely dresses, just wouldnt do an alteration there again.
Athena couture is located in our locality which is huge benefit for us whenever anyone has to do some wedding shopping; the store is not less than any top notch wedding store of the city. They have a good collection from to designers and great service. I am happy that we have such nice store so close to us and recommend to all not because of its location only but quality dresses and nice service.
Was not very impressed with the customer service for this place. Came in looking for bridal gowns and when I gave the date of my wedding I felt the sales person didnt want to help me due to how far away my wedding was. Didnt walk with me to help me select out gowns and didnt assist me much in the fitting. Had some nice dresses but I would have appreciated more attentive service.
Woman was nice and greeted me immediately however they do not list any of the sizes on the dresses, apparently your just supposed to guess. Asked in advance if carried plus size dresses only to arrive and find out that they do not carry any, but can order in plus size. Guess your just supposed to assume what looks good on a size 4 will look good on you too.
Athena couture is one of the best shopping store in terms of wedding dresses and other accessories in this locality. I first knew about it through my friend who had already got her dress from Athena couture. The dresses are of good quality and designs were so beautiful. Highly recommend it!
The experience was PERFECT!!!!! Very happy with the service that was given to me, the dresses are all beautiful. The sale girl was very helpful and honest. The alterations was fast and absolutely amazing, I cant even see where they touched the dress. Great job! Keep it up!

I am living in Winnipeg from last 10 years and recently one of my friend want to purchased some wedding dresses for his daughter. So we had visited Athena Couture wedding shop and purchased some beautiful dress and we were satisfied and happy with our shopping.
Greeted by smiling and friendly faces here. The service was prompt and they are completely honest about the needs for your apparel, and wont try to sell you on unnecessary alterations. Very good quality work to boot!
I was happy with their service. My wedding dress was complicated to alter but she did a great job. Their alteration fee is more reasonable than other bridal store.
I just went there few months ago, found exactly what I was looking for: an affordable graduation dress. Staff was very friendly. Thank you Athena!!
