It also features bridal boutique owners Sam and Rachelle, seamstress Maria and Amanda-Lina’s team of seasoned bridal consultants.

The debut season features Canadian bridal appointments including Olympic Bobsledder Emily Baadsvik and fiancé, CFL star Dimitri Tsoumpas; Lily, whose entourage includes her godmother, fashion icon Jeanne Beker; Sharon, whose 88 year-old Matron of Honour and grandmother helps to pick out the perfect dress; best friends who fulfill a childhood dream of shopping for dresses together; and the bride who has tried on 50 gowns before coming to Amanda-Lina’s Sposa Boutique.
