Everybody knows just how expensive a wedding can be. Wouldn’t you love the chance to buy a designer wedding gown at more than half its price and save the rest of the money for your honeymoon? We know you would! This is why we have planned a fantastic sale! Here are the most important things you should know about our Bridal Blowout Sale:

• It takes place between January 2nd and January 4th. On Friday, you will find us here from 10 am to 9 pm, on Saturday we will be open from 10 am to 6 pm and on Sunday we will be here from 11 am to 5 pm, so make sure to hurry up and grab your favorite gown.
• We will have a wide range of dresses on sale (and some of them go as far as 80% off!). Some of the designers include Maggie Sottero, Casablanca Bridal, Essence of Australia and Ronald Joyce – but many other famous creators’ dresses will be present as well.
• Aside from wedding gowns, you will also find evening dresses, gowns for your mothers and prom dresses as well.
• The gowns will come in a wide range of sizes as well. We hold sizes ranging from 6 to 30; however, remember that the vast majority of the gowns on sale will come on sizes from 8 to 12.
• Come wearing a pair of comfortable shoes and a bodysuit. Also, think of what your ideal dress will look like by visiting our website and the website of the designers we will present at the sale. At the same time though, be prepared to be flexible when it comes to “the ideal” gown as well – who knows, maybe “the one” is completely different than anything you might have previously imagined!

Winter weddings are incredibly romantic and magic. Surrounded by the cold weather and by the stunning landscape of the winter, your wedding stands a very good chance of being a complete success. Even so, you should definitely pay attention to the details that make for a winter themed wedding – and this includes your bridesmaids’ dresses too. How to choose their dresses for a winter wedding? Here are some tips:

• If you plan on having a winter wonderland themed wedding, avoid dressing your bridesmaids in white. However, you can definitely dress them in very light blue (icy blue) or in silver – and they will complement the theme perfectly!
• Another very popular choice for the winter is dressing the bridesmaids in blueberry blue. This darker shade of blue is really beautiful and it looks amazing in the winter décor – especially if you have chosen it as your wedding color too.
• If you plan on having a New Year’s Eve wedding, allow your brides to shine. Choose glittery dresses for them (or at least dresses that have sparkly accents on them) and your best friends will surely appreciate it.
• Red and deep green are also very popular choices for the winter wedding season. You can combine red and green bridesmaids’ dresses (for instance, your Maid of Honor could wear red while the other bridesmaids could wear green). Having all-red and all-green bridesmaids’ dresses is also a great idea. Also, you could settle on one of these two colors and allow your brides to choose their favorite shades too.
Here at Amanda Lina’s Bridal, you will find a very wide range of bridesmaids’ dresses to complement the natural beauty of your “favorite ladies”. Come visit us and pick your favorite dresses – your friends will definitely love your choice!

All ladies love shopping – but when it comes to shopping for the perfect wedding gown, everything will be different. While you will definitely enjoy “hunting” for the one, you will most likely feel the need to do it with people who really support you and who you are as well. This is why choosing your wedding dress shopping entourage can be quite important and why you should give it a thought.

How do you select who you should bring along whens searching for the most beautiful wedding gown? Here are some tips:
• There’s no rule to say you should or shouldn’t bring someone with you. If you want to, you can include in your wedding shop entourage whomever you want – even your spouse-to-be, if you are not afraid of superstitions!
• Generally speaking, mothers (and sometimes mother-in-laws) will be invited to shop with the bride for the perfect gown, shoes and accessories. However, keep in mind that if you don’t want this, you don’t have to do it.
• Include your maid of honor and maybe some of your bridesmaids too. They most likely know what your usual style is and they understand how you would like to look for the Big Day so they might provide you with some really good advice along the way.
• As mentioned before, you need to bring along people who will give you valuable advice and who genuinely want to be there for you. Don’t bring someone with you just because you “are supposed” to do it – bring them because you want them to be there for you for this big choice in your life!
When shopping for the one, that dress that will make you feel like a princess taken out of fairy tales, make sure to stop by Amanda Lina’s too. We can provide you with of the most stunning designer wedding gowns in the world and there’s a really big chance you will find the perfect one with us!

Every bride wants to be the most beautiful girl in the room, but all brides will want their attendants to look gorgeous as well. This is more than natural, actually – after all, these ladies have been there for you through good and through worse while you were planning the Big Day and they do deserve to look like the beautiful women they are.

Bill Levkoff’s bridesmaids collection may provide you precisely with what you need for your bridesmaids to feel amazing. We love this collection A LOT and there are many, many reasons we believe you will love it too. Here are some of the most important features of the gowns in this wonderful collection:

Regardless of the type of wedding you want to have and regardless of how you want your attendants to be dressed, there will be something you will like in this collection.
• Every gown is simple and yet really beautiful at the same time. The designs featured by the dresses in Bill Levkoff’s collection are simple and classy, but they all possess that “special something” that makes them truly unique.
• They come in a large variety of colors. It doesn’t matter if you will want all your bridesmaids to be dressed the same or if you will simply want their dresses to have something in common (the color, the length, the chromatic area and so on). The dresses in this collection can be successfully combined with one another and they are meant to fit every body type there is!

You know you want to spend the rest of your life with her – but you also know that popping the question should be a really beautiful moment she will never forget. If you are lost for ideas and if you want to inspire yourself to make your proposal as memorable and as surprising as the ones in the movies, make sure to read on. We have gathered some really great ideas!

• Is her birthday coming soon? There’s no better present than asking her to marry you! Instead of simply doing it, surprise her with a special birthday cake. Ask the confectioner to write Will You Marry Me instead of the traditional Happy Birthday and your special someone will definitely love it.
• Fridge magnets. Sometimes, being romantic is not all about spending a lot of money. Surprise your love with a special kind of proposal: one that is made out of fridge magnets. If you know she wouldn’t like anything too grand for this moment, this kind of proposal will definitely bring tears of joy to her eyes.
• Aquarium show. Attend an aquarium show with your special someone and ask the divers to put up a proposal show for you. Will You Marry Me is the kind of thing she will definitely not expect to see at an aquarium!
• Street sign. Take your love somewhere special and have a BIG Will You Marry Me sign hung somewhere really visible. When you approach the sign, ask her to read what it says on it. Before she even realizes what is going on, you will be on your knee popping the big question! Keep in mind that you might have to talk to the authorities about how this can be done, but that it will definitely be worth it!
Amanda Lina’s loves this kind of moments and we would be more than happy to be part of your wedding planning too. Take your bride-to-be to see our stunning wedding gown collections and she will more than likely love at least one of these fabulous designs!

• These gowns are quite traditional, but they are not boring in any way. Each of them has something very special about it and each of them has the ability to make you feel absolutely gorgeous.
• There’s a haunting elegance about each of these designs. Most of them come in very feminine fit and flare silhouettes meant to celebrate the beautiful curves of a lady. This also adds to the “magnificent aura” they create around the woman wearing them.
• The intricate embellishments are mesmerizing. Lace is a very important part of this collection and, as you will see, it is perfectly incorporated in these designs.
• While the collection definitely has a sense of “completeness” to it and all the designs are somewhat connected to each other, they all manage to cover for a wide range of styles.
