This pandemic has really created a lot of uncertainties, but the one certain thing was marrying the man of my dreams no matter what. It was the most magical, and most intimate wedding I can ask for. My family and friends created the support and strength I needed to get through these tough times. Amandalinas has made this day even more special by ensuring they bring my dream to reality. The dress I wore made me feel complete. Thank you so much for the best experience a bride can have during this pandemic.
We met online in 2018 and hit it off pretty quickly. We had lots in common, including a love of the outdoors, being active and a shared Christian faith. We spent the next 10 months getting to know each other, as well as each others' friends and families. In August 2019, on a hiking trip with some friends, Barry got down on one knee and proposed on top of a mountain in upstate New York. We quickly jumped into wedding planning, with plans for a 150+ guest wedding, a brunch reception, lawn games and a folk band. One of my first orders of business was finding a dress, which I did with the help of the staff at Amandalina's! Unfortunately, as the pandemic became more widespread, our original plans had to be cancelled. We went through a roller coaster of changing plans, as the restrictions changed almost daily. However, at the last minute, we were allowed to have up to 50 people together, and a friend generously gave us their beautiful backyard to host a small ceremony. Our friends and family really came together for us, offering us music, photography services and help with decorating. While it wasn't the day we had originally planned, we had a lovely ceremony on a hot summer solstice day. We still hope to celebrate with all our loved ones who couldn't be with us then at a later time, and we are enjoying our first year of married life!
My husband, Kevin, and I got married at the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort and Spa, and it was the most magical moment of my entire life! I got to marry my best friend in one of the places I love the most! A big thank you to Amanda Lina's for helping me choose the most amazing wedding dress and making my bridal dreams come true!
Christian and I met in high school 13 years ago where I developed a very big crush on him. We never dated in high school but became friends. I moved away for university and on 7 years ago we met up for a date. We hit it off so much and our friendship quickly turned into love. From high school crush to husband! This wedding dress was everything I could have imagined and more! It had such amazing detail and it highlighted all my curves. The lace was delicate, the bling was subtle, and I would wear it every day if I could! Relive the Friends episode and watch TV wearing it - maybe on our one year anniversary!
In February 2011 my good friend from university and I were headed to Cancun, Mexico for a care free spring break get away. We were so excited to escape from our long, cold, Canadian winter and bask in the sun and see all Cancun had to offer...little did I know I was about to meet someone who would become my husband. After about two days of settling into our resort and sight seeing we met a group of guys at our hotel who went by Monks, Carl, Knapps, and Jon. They were a super fun and out going group of guys from some place we had never heard of, called Chalk River, but we all hit it off well and hung out together all week. After a full week of sun and ocean fun Jon and I exchanged numbers and made sure we would keep in contact when we got back to Canada. About a month later Jon came to Toronto to watch a Supercross show, and I had taken my first trip to Chalk River, and so began our two and a half year long distance relationship. After many drives back and forth and many new experiences for the both of us, I finally finished my degree and made the move to Chalk River. We got married on Sept 2, 2017 in Mississauga and it was the most perfect day.

Ryan and I were dating for 8 years until he built up the courage to face his fear of flying and proposed to me after our flight with iflygta Toronto. I found my dress by the help of Dimitra at Amanda Linas. I wore a Maggie Sottero dress as soon as I tried it on I fell in love. We got married at St. Marguerite d'youville Church in Brampton. The reception was held at Renaissance by the creek in Mississauga. My Beach theme wedding was a hit and the only thing missing was the Ocean. For our honeymoon we were reunited with the Ocean in the Bahamas. Thank you Amanda Linas and Dimitra for making my wedding a dream come true. Michelle Medeiros
Nicholas and I (Rose) are a full loving, down to earth couple that loves to go on adventures! We love to be surrounded by our family and friends. We met online and it was connection at first swipe. We started chatting right away and when on a date within 2 days of meeting online, everything else is history. My husband made our proposal very special. He secretly worked behind the scenes and made a short film which he had inserted into the previews of a current movie. We went to the movie theater like any normal Saturday. Nicholas made sure that we got to the movies really early so we could get good seats. As we waited for the previews to start he was all nervous and jittery. We patiently waited. Then all of sudden he was on the big screen, I can't even remember what was said in the video, but there was my leading man down on one knee!
Dear Amanda-Lina's, My husband and I got engaged in September 2016, and the first thing I knew was that I needed my bridal gown. Worried that I might not find "the one," I immediately knew that I wanted to explore possible options at none other than your store. It was there that I would find and end my dress search. My veil, dress and even my bridesmaid's gowns all came from the store. From the first time I tried on the dress, to the very last time on my wedding day, I felt beautiful. Your alterations department are truly geniuses, as they made my dress fit to my body like a glove, which again, added to the overall feel of the dress. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Best, Rachel Couto
We met when I was 14 and instantly fell in love. Flash forward 10 years and he was asking me to be his wife. The following year we were planning a wedding. I have always dreamt of my wedding day since I was a little girl. My experience at Amanada Lina was one I will always cherish. I told the consultant what I envisioned and the first dress she pulled for me was a Sophia Tolli Venezia dress. The minute I looked at myself in the mirror I instantly had tears rolling down my face. As I walked out of the room toward my family and I saw their faces,I instantly knew this was the dress I wanted to get married in. Three days before our wedding my husband was in a bad accident, his mother broke her arm and was put in a cast. The day of our wedding was even more special because the accident could have been a lot worse. Nothing will ever compare to the feeling of seeing my husband's reaction when he saw me walking down the aisle. Wearing the dress of my dreams while getting married to the man of my dreams is an indescribable feeling.
I met my hubby online. Meeting him for the first time I was really scary. I told my girls if he turned out to be a serial killer and he did anything to me make sure he is dead. He turned out to be an awesome, Wonderful, kind-hearted, family guy. Our Wedding was a 4 days celebration of our love and family. Both of different cultures. We have been together for about 8 years now. Married for 3 and half months now. We are very blessed to have each other in our lives.
I met my fiance 6 years ago playing co-ed volleyball. We've been through ups and downs and it made us so strong. In 2017 he proposed to me on a boat in Los Cabos, Mexico and we decided to do a Destination wedding with all the people we loved to celebrate in the same place! Going to Amandalina's, I was given options based on exactly what I was looking for - and found the dress of my dreams that fit all my criteria after just trying on 5 dresses. I knew it was the one! It felt great on and it made me feel so beautiful!
We had our fairy tale wedding last night and my dress was a dream come true!!! So many compliments and I couldn't have asked for anything more!! Thank you to each of you for helping me find my dream dress!!! Shout out to Milana especially!!! My bridesmaids were also flawless because of you! Thank you!!❤️
Our wedding day was chilly but it was the best day & couldnt have been more perfect! All our guests enjoyed the day and dressed in tuxedos and gorgeous gowns. The whole day seems almost like a blur because it went by so fast but I would do it again in a heart beat! Looking back at our wedding photos makes me wish the day didnt have to end. From the beginning to end, the day was everything we could have imagined. The food was sooo amazing and even though taking photos was a cold experience, I love how they all turned out & our photographer was wonderful and made it so fun. My husband and I are celebrating our 1 year anniversary soon & I am so thankful for how great our first year has been and for everyone who was involved in our big day!
