    Simple and Painless Experience

    My consultant was absolutely wonderful and the lady working at the reception desk was just as lovely. They have a fantastic selection of dresses and prices. I felt comfortable in the atmosphere of the store, and wasn't afraid to ask questions, speak my opinion, and my guests had a great time. I'm glad I purchased my dress from them!

    Extremely unprofessional - EXCEPT FOR DIANE

    My first experience involved an absolutely amazing woman named Diane.There are not enough positive things I could say about Diane, from understanding my needs, being engaging, to her knowledge of the various dresses,designers and absolutely all things bridal. I left with a spring in my step after purchasing my 1st gown. I returned to the store a second time and chose my second gown, again with the assistance of Diane. I had second thoughts about the cut of the dress after looking at it on line, and Diane had me come back in the next day, we decided to go with a different dress which I felt more comfortable in.I enjoyed working with Diane and her knowledge and professionalism. I returned a 3rd time to buy a gown for my daughter,working with Diane.She, was magic with my daughter it was quick and painless.This is where we go from exemplary service to below mediocre.I was contacted that 1 of my dresses was in, along with my daughter’s; my MOH called in to make an appointment for our 1st FITTING and to find a dress for her. July 8th at 10(the day of the Roger's shutdown). Upon arrival,I was greeted in a very unfriendly manner and told we did not have an appointment.The chill coming from Lauren was palpable enough that my 12y.o. noticed.I explained that my MOH had made the appointment, I was told an appointment was scheduled for 11am for a "try on and pick up" I reiterated that it was a fitting by the seamstress.Lauren eventually made it feel like she was moving mountains to " squeeze us in" at 1230 pm, but we would have to be "quick as a VIP bride" had booked the room. I asked repeatedly for Diane as I knew she would sort it out.Due to the Roger's issue, Diane was unable to come in( as were so many affected by this outage). We went nextdoor, found a dress for my MOH(4th dress purchase) At 1230,I proceeded to try on my dress.It did not fit!The associate, told me I needed to lose another 10 pounds and then I was whisked to the back with the seamstresses.On our way back I spoke to Samantha (daughter owner) and let her know just how terrible Lauren had made our entire group feel - can you imagine my shock and awe to be told" this is how she has been trained to be".I put on my dress and was told, sorry it does not fit and we are going to need to do major alterations. And then I was told that my second dress would not be in until the end of the month,and they would not be able to do the alterations they were too busy. At the time of purchase, I’d offered to pay a rush fee in order to receive my dress on time and fitted properly - which I was told no,we had plenty of time.I paid the exorbitant fees for alterations and was told there would be even more fees.I left the store feeling defeated. I reached out to Diane and let her know what was happening -and once her phone was working, she got right back to me.OnJuly 11,I called and left a message for Sam(the owner) asking that he please return my call. I returned to the store on July 12, met Diane,she had me try on my dress again It fit! Nothing had been done, no 10lbs shed. Just the always professional Diane.My 2nd dress had arrived, and it fit. (the other staff told me it wouldn’t) July 14 I called again, left a Vm in Sam’s mailbox, and with Lauren. To this time, Sam has not called. Management does not appear to return phone calls. THANK YOU, DIANE! To the rest – you all need a lesson in professionalism.

    Very Kind Staff

    The staff were very kind and helpful, especially after hearing about how the dress I had originally bought from another store was ruined. They have an amazing stock of dresses, including off the rack if you are in a time crunch!

    Hi Andrea,

    Thank-you so much for your review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us and were pleased with our large selection of gowns to choose from!

    I said yes

    Amanda Linas Sposa was my home away from home for a very long time, to come in there after I got engaged was such an incredible feeling! I had with me my grandmother who wanted the most to see me in a wedding dress! Not knowing I would find the one that day Lindsay was my consultant and let me tell you she knew EXACTLY what I wanted. Not only was she bubbly, friendly, funny but extremely professional I felt like I was on the show. She was amazing! I was so comfortable with her she basically designed what I wanted when I walked down the aisle, my experience was 20/10!

    Thank You!

    Amanda-Lina's Sposa Boutique's reply:

    Thank you so much Eleni for sharing your wonderful experience! And your beautiful words about Lindsay. We are so thrilled that you came back here to find your dream gown. We look forward to working with you in the future.

    I said “Yes” to the dress at Amanda-Lina’s!

    I said “Yes” to the dress at Amanda-Lina’s! It was such a wonderful experience! My consultant Diane went above and beyond my expectations. She understood the style of gown I was looking for and made me feel at ease trying on dresses. Diane was very friendly, patient and sincere! The highlight of my experience was the aisle walk! I look forward to the opportunity to work with Diane again for my Bridal Accessory appointment!

    Amanda-Lina's Sposa Boutique's reply:

    Hi Jessica,

    Thank you for such a warm review. We are so happy that you had a wonderful time with Diane, she's such a gem! Can't wait to see you again for your accessories appointment. All the best!

    Treated the Bride like Gold; Mother of the Bride, not so much..

    I found my dream dress online, and of course it's only available at select stores: so we made our way to Amanda-Lina's. I was treated so so well!! Very encouraging experience for me (I'm plus sized, so shopping in general can be a scary experience for me sometimes). However, I felt the woman helping me was incredibly dismissive to my mom. I'm sure they experience an array of people - and I know there is a stereotype with some mother of the brides.. However, I did invite my mother to come shopping with me due to me actually wanting her opinion, and wanting to have these memories and moments with her. She was literally interrupted when giving input on dresses, and she was discouraged from even looking around and picking anything to recommend to me. This left her feeling incredibly hurt and dismissed by the end of the appointment, and it was heartbreaking for us both. I hate that she felt that way - and I wish I had had the clarity at the time to have said something in person: I was too in my own moment to fully take in what was happening. Even my maid of honour noticed the hostility towards my mom from the very beginning of the appointment. It's important for me to address this and be honest!

    I will say, they have an amazing selection of dresses (highly recommend anything Madi Lane) - and a great range in prices!! Their boutique is well decorated, stocked, and truly makes you feel like you're the star of the show looking for your dream dress. The staff are knowledgeable and encouraging to brides - love love love that they have a great range in sizes as well! If anything, they have the bride's back 110%

    Highly Recommend- Experience was a Dream Come True

    Amanda Lina’s is straight out of a TV show… literally, they host “Say Yes, to the Dress Canada”. In advance, I read the policies and practices of store, and booked a VIP appointment online (which surprisingly had the same fee attached as the other appointments), so I knew what to expect going into the appointment. Also, I went in with an understanding of what I was looking for (I'd done hours of research), but I wasn't "stuck" on any one dress (common sense; no stores can guarantee what's on their website will be in stock whenever it is that you decide to shop).
    The atmosphere, the ambiance and the experience were everything I had hoped and dreamed for. We had our own private room, which was easily 8’ x 8’, and the dressing room was elevated into a stage to model the gowns. My bridal party and mother were seated in comfortable, cushioned chairs and couches, and were offered complimentary bottled water. The gown selection seemed infinite, and were so well organized! Ball gowns, A-Line, Strapless, Spaghetti Straps, Plunging Backs, etc. I knew exactly which sections I wanted to stick to. They are also one of the few retailers that carry the Eve of Milady designer, which are absolutely breathtaking. Wendy my consultant was AMAZING. She was very friendly, very approachable, and very knowledgeable. It was like shopping with an old friend; she had the entire room giggling on multiple occasions. I can’t say enough good things about Amanda Lina’s. Highly recommend :D

    Amazing Experience!

    I had an amazing experience at Amanda-Lina's! They had a large selection of beautiful dresses to choose from and Nancy was great at picking dresses that fit my style and vision. She knew exactly what I was looking for! Thank you Amanda-Lina's for helping me find my dream dress!

    Huge selection, Great fittings, and Jewelry!

    We visited 2 other bridal shops before here looking for a dress about 2 months before our wedding. Nancy and the seamstresses are unmatched. Nancy's eye for details and style made the process so easy. Aside from tons of fittings, we also added sleeves to the dress and it looked amazing! We looked online for bridal jewelry and didn't find anything perfect, so Nancy suggested a hairpiece and necklace that matched so well!

    I said yes to the dress!

    I am a very picky bride and it was not easy for me to find the perfect dress. I tried couple of stores and was almost on the verge of giving up until I visited Amanda Lina's. The store itself is huge with a variety of dresses all around. And then came the miracle person- Teresa. She was nothing less than an angel, she saw my shortlisted designs, made me try a few was honest to tell me what does not look good and then went and got the dress from one secret corner! Lol. Moment I wore it, I had goosebumps and the moment I walked out of trial room, my friends accompanying me starting tearing up and then I knew this is it! So tip to all brides ask for Treasa. Then I was introduced to Nancy -my consultant for trials and fitting. She is another expert at the store, she was so kind, patient and willing to be around me until I was 100% convinced with alterations. Despite of having knee pains, she would insist on bending down to fix the train on trials. I am in awe of the dedication these two had an how they were not 'just selling'. The store is definitely overpriced but I guess the service you get is worth it!

    Amanda-Lina's Sposa Boutique's reply:

    Hi Teeney,

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a thoughtful review! We are so happy that you loved our services and that we, along with Teresa and Nancy could be apart of your special day. Congratulations once again!
