She has been in the industry for about 18 years and Is known for her warm service and unique modern designs. Her gowns are known for their intricate details, quality workmanship and streamlined cuts that flatter the feminine silhouette beautifully.

Verdant landscapes, flowers and architecture, bold colours and romantic details, serve as the inspiration for her collections. In fact, Amanda Lee Weddings was the first local bridal boutique to introduce black accents on wedding gowns, a design that has since become its signature look.

Every gown from Amanda Lee Weddings is unique – whether you’re looking for something bespoke or off the rack. She explains: “We only have one gown per design. If brides like what they’ve seen in our stores, they can be assured it’s an exclusive design that will not be repeated.

At times, I like to surprise my brides with interesting design elements, and they always appreciate the fact that their gown is one-of-a-kind.”

Amanda feels that today’s brides feel more empowered, which translates into having more confidence to carry off a unique or dramatic look. When it comes to brides who prefer something classic, she will create a style that is still different and modern.

Her advice to brides-to-be? “Stay true to yourself, but keep your options open. Designers are there to assist in helping you look your absolute best on your wedding, so don’t settle for anything less.”
