Tina McLean at Mon Amie Bridal was an absolute pleasure to work with. She helped both my sister and I find the perfect wedding dress for our weddings. Since I had previously met Tina while shopping for my sister’s wedding dress, I knew she was the one I wanted to help find mine. I kept in contact with Tina prior to my appointment as my time frame to get a wedding dress was limited. Based off the descriptions I gave her, I came to the appointment with wedding dresses waiting for me to try on. I found my dress after trying on only the second dress she had picked out for me, and I absolutely LOVED it. It captured every detail I relayed to Tina about how I wanted my dress to turn out. My case was a bit different though, as I needed to alter my dress to accommodate religious needs. The team at Mon Amie Bridal from management to the alterations department worked with me every step of the way to ensure my dress was the dream dress I was looking for. Thank you to Tina and the rest of the Mon Amie Bridal team for creating the beautiful dress I always dreamt of wearing!
Had such an amazing experience at Mon Amie yesterday and ultimately ended up saying yes to the dress! I was fortunate enough to be paired with bridal specialist Julie, who used her impressive experience to help me narrow down my vision and ultimately show me the dress I ended up choosing! Overall amazing experience with friendly staff, impressive collection of dresses while still being cognizant and respectful of a bride’s budget. Would recommend to every bride!
Mon amie has a super good taste for wedding dresses, for all kinds of brides and all budgets! definitely a must go store in costa mesa!!! After all the stylist I met in all the appointments Tina McLean was truly the best!! she undestand perfectly for what you are looking for and help you with all your questions! totally recommended
I purchased my dress at Mon Amie after visiting three bridal salons I knew I had found the place! Tina McLean was my bridal stylist and she was amazing! I was a bit discouraged that day and she was my saving grace! We even shared the same wedding date which I took as a sweet sign! It just took a brief conversation of what I was looking for and as if magic she had found my dress and never went over my budget! It was stunning and exactly what I wanted. Mon Amie was even able to get me extra lace and have the designer do the hem for me. I was very pleased! I did not use their alterations as I had my own but other than that it was a beautiful experience. Thanks again Tina!
Tina McClean helped me choosing my dream gown for my wedding. It was a real pleasure to work with her and Esmeralda, the girl doing the alterations. She always finds the right words to comfort you and to guide you. She’s the best to me and I’m really happy with my Mon Amie Bridal experience. Thank you Tina !!!!!!
Although I didn't end up getting my wedding dress here, I had a wonderful experience! When I began my search last January, I had my first appointment here and Janelle made me feel so comfortable. She was strict to stay within my budget and didn't push me to buy anything that I was unsure about. I found two I loved, but couldn't make a final decision. I shared with her that I found my dress elsewhere, and she was so happy to hear I had found my dress even though it wasn't at Mon Amie! I honestly felt bad that I didn't purchase my dress at Mon Amie because Janelle was so great!!
I found the dress of my dreams at Mon Amie Bridal. I was recommended it by numerous people and this place is the stuff of fantasies. So many beautiful dresses! I had a middle/low price range and my consultant Ivy (the most wonderful person on the planet) made my special day with my mom incredible. She listened to what I wanted and stayed in my budget. She talked with my mom and I and made some awesome dress suggestions -- she was walking with me around the store and said that she had a dress no one had tried on yet and she thought it would be perfect for me. When I saw it on the hangar it was way out of my comfort zone, but I put it on and I cried. It was my dress. It was the perfect moment and she made it all possible for my mom and I. It was so me and it is like she could see the real me and found a dress for my personality. My seamstress was also amazing and the whole experience was top notch. I loved the way I looked on my wedding day!
Mon Amie is top-notch! I scheduled a "Signature Appointment" (monamie.com/signature-ap…) with them and loved the experience. To explain how the Signature Appointment works, you pay just under $300 ($100 of which is applied to a dress if you buy there) to get the store completely to yourself and a group (up to 10) friends. Delicious snacks (I say snacks, but you could easily make a meal out of it) and champagne/cider are provided so it's like a mini-party for your friends. You also have the luxury of Mon Amie's wonderful stylist (Tina) assisting you with dress selections. Before you even set foot in the store, a number of dresses have been pulled for you by Tina based on your personal style. How does that happen? Tina diligently reviews the Pinterest/Tumblr you send her before your appointment, and picks out beautiful dresses that fit YOUR style. (You also tell her your budget in advance to make sure your style doesn't outspend you!) The Signature Appointment also comes with a tote full of goodies. As someone who was honestly intimidated by wedding dress shopping, I'm happy to say Tina and Beth (the manager) made my experience both fun and laid-back. To my surprise, I never felt overwhelmed, pretentious, or "not me." (They also accommodated my friend who recently had a baby with a room for pumping.) Beyond the customer service, the dress selection was GREAT. In fact, this spoiled me when I visited some other stores in the area and was great disappointed by the selection. (Do your research before showing up at stores!) Traditional, totally non-traditional, or anywhere in between - you'll find something there you love! I highly recommend going to Mon Amie and, if possible, scheduling a "Signature Appointment." You'll love it, and so will the friends you take with you!
Mon Amie was the perfect place to go for my Wedding dress. My friend Becky went there years ago and I was her bridesmaid. The experience was excellent and still is to this day. Marianna LoMonaco found me the dress i was looking for. When i first went i wasn't quite sure what i wanted it was so hard to decide. The dresses at Mon Amie are beautiful, so hard to decide on a style. Marianna brought out the dresses that she thought would look good on me and i liked them. Tina the manager also popped in from time to time to see the dresses on me, she helped me too. Everyone is so nice. I didn't decide right away on the 1st visit, i just wasn't sure yet. I had went to other Bridal shops and ended up back at Mon Amie. I had a great experience with Marianna and I knew she knew what dress i would say Yes to and she found it! I never knew i would cry like i've seen other brides do when they put on that perfect dress and I did with Marianna. She found me that dress and I said YES to the dress! I just want to thank Marianna and Tina (the Manager) for helping me find the perfect dress. I highly recommend this Bridal Salon.
Mon Amie, they are the most amazing and accommodating Bridal Company. I had an extremely awful experience at a rental bridal store called One Night Affair. Long story short, One Night Affair took my nonrefundable deposit on a dress and then went MIA. I didn't have a dress and I am 2 months away from my Wedding. Mon Amie heard my story and literally saved the day! Jessica was helping me and she was so patient with me and was actually wanting to help. I put on this beautiful ballgown and it fit perfectly. I had found my Wedding dress thanks to Jessica and the store manager at Mon Amie. I am so thankful for their help and genuine kindness. I highly recommend shopping here for your wedding day. You won't be disappointed!
I did not find my dress at Mon Ami but I have to say the service was excellent and they had a large assortment of dresses in many different styles. Tina who assisted me was amazing and I showed her a phot of a dress that I had already tried on at another store and at the end of my fitting she said, "I would love to have you as a Mon Ami bride but I can't find your dress because you already found it". That is customer service and I highly recommend all brides to check this place out!
I can't encourage brides to visit this salon enough! I came to Mon Amie after visiting several other high-end bridal salons where I felt rushed and expendable. Granted, I'm the type of bride that refuses to settle and was hell bent on finding the PERFECT dress, but choosing your wedding dress is a big deal and I didn't want to feel like just another bride or number. So when I met Janelle at Mon Amie it was like a breathe of fresh air! She was so patient and let me pick out NUMEROUS dresses (some of which I tried on twice to narrow down my choices, because they were all so beautiful). I never once felt like an imposition and she went above and beyond to give me and my party the VIP treatment. The whole time I was trying on dresses, I felt like I was just playing dress up with one of my girl friends. I wound up finding my dress that night, and 100% believe that the experience was just as meaningful as finally being able to say "yes to dress". Janelle, as well as the whole team at Mon Amie, made me feel heard and valuable - the way every bride wants and should feel on such a special day. If you havent been here yet, GO! And ask for Janelle if you want your experience to be as memorable and amazing as mine was !
0 friends 1 review 5.0 star rating 4/21/2017 I could not have asked for a better experience working with Tina McLean! When I came to Mon Amie I had already visited so many bridal stores and still was not loving anything. Tina was the most patient and gracious stylist, she never rushed me and I truly felt like she listened to my concerns. I went there thinking I knew what style I wanted but left with something totally different. If it wasn't for Tina I would have never tried on my dress. But you must trust her expertise! The dress she suggested was a perfect fit for my style, personality and budget. Tina is the best! If you go to Mon Amie you must ask for her, you wont regret it!
I had a perfect experience at Mon Amie! It was my first time trying on dresses and I had an idea of what I wanted but I was open to anything. I was lucky enough to work with Tina who was just perfect! She was patient, but gave her opinion when needed and she pulled options that I would have overlooked. I live in NY so I did not buy my dress here but Tina ended up introducing me to a designer that I was not familiar with and I feel in love with her and ended up buying one of her dresses in NY. I have nothing but great things to say about Mon Amie and to all the brides out there, request Tina - she will make the process seamless , stress-free and fun!
I came in planning an Islamic Afghan ceremony, hoping I would be able to find something quickly in green. I had doubts about finding anything but I found a gorgeous dress made in the in house designer that could be done in green in a limited time. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a swatch beforehand but the dress came out even better than expected. Breathtaking. More than one could ask for. Tina was amazing in finding something gorgeous, quickly, and in my vision for our wedding on the Queen Mary. She had incredible vision and input and made me feel comfortable in the dressing room. She took suggestions well but I think a bride should go in and just trust her. She's got great vision fit and physique and I tried and loved a dress wouldn't have picked out myself. I was nervous when I didn't get a swatch but the best thing I did was trust them. Beth was very comforting and babysat my dress for me, both Tina and Beth giving me updates all along the way. My emerald green dress was amazing and I was a princess on the Queen Mary. The skirt and sheath combination with multicolored green beading was incredible.
Tina was wonderful!
Terrible bridal boutique! This store has no business carrying high end wedding gowns and their alterations department is a joke. They butchered my sister in laws $8000 Berta gown and charged her for it. We had to take it elsewhere to be repaired and when that seamstress saw what Mon Amie had done she was speechless. Stay far away from Mon Amie! They get your money, put you in a time crunch and your screwed. Why risk it withh plenty of other bridal boutiques in Southern California.
After going to over 10 bridal stores, I am blown away by the level of service at Mon Amie. My stylist, Tina, made me feel comfortable from the very beginning when she listened to what I imagined in my dream dress. She found the most unique architectural dress for me that matched my style and was exactly what I was looking for. Tina's years of experience, professionalism, and fun and caring personality (she even came in on her day off to let me try on the dress again!) made it a dream to work with her! Thank you Tina for making my bridal experience absolutely perfect!
I went with my sister to find her wedding dress and she worked with Max as her consultant. At first I thought my sister would be hesitant with a male consultant but MAX was so amazing and fabulous in more ways than one! She was glad she got MAX because he made the experience so much fun. By far he was the best consultant compared to other stores we went into. He was genuinely excited about my sister's wedding plans and took the time to get to know her and understand what dress she was looking for. He was amazing and knowledgeable and just darn hilarious! We laughed A LOT which made trying on dresses less stressful and more playful and fun until we found the perfect one. If you're looking to Mon Amie for your dress definitely request MAX - you won't regret it! I wasn't even the bride and I felt like a queen.
This place is amazing and what makes amazing is Maxx Martinez. He is really incredible at his job. From the moment we met, his energy and professionalism was on point. You can tell he loves what he does. I went to many bridal shops and overall, everyone was god but Maxx gives you that extra piece of "special". He sat down with my sister and I and asked about my fiancé, our wedding, and gave us his background, which he has a lot of experience. After talking, he pulled 8-9 gowns, all of which I would have chosen and one or two that I would not have picked. He zeroed in on exactly what I wanted and my style. I ended choosing a dress I would have never considered trying on. This guy knows his stuff. He dresses to the nines and his make-up is always perfect. Don't give up the opportunity to work with him because he is a male. He is very professional and was better than all the other consultants I met. Thank you Maxx! Everyone there is really nice and they have a great selection of dresses.
When my oldest step-son got engaged my first and only thought was to go to Mon Amie where I purchased my wedding gown a few years earlier. Not only were there many beautiful choices I was able to have a custom gown designed by Olia Zavozina herself. She was doing a trunk show. During that busy weekend both Olia and the staff took the time to design the most unique beautiful gown. When it arrived I knew it was breathtaking! I received more compliments than you can imagine, including from the bartender! Whether you are the bride, mother of the bride/groom or looking for an elegant gown Mon Amie is the only place I would recommend from the beautiful choices to the amazing staff. 5 Stars for sure!!
Mon Amie is the most amazing Bridal Salon. From the beautiful selection to the amazing staff. I was looking for a sophisticated gown for our summer wedding that made me feel like a bride but also be appropriate for a second marriage. I never thought I would find my dream gown there. The staff made me feel amazing and knew immediately what would be perfect. I highly recommend making this Salon your #1 choice whether you are a young princess bride, a sophisticated bride or an older bride for the second time. Definitely 5 stars!
Found my dress in 2 appointments!!!! Tina McLean was an amazing stylist!!! She knew the styles that complimented my body type. Thank-you so much! Can't wait to wear my wedding dress!
I am OBSESSED with my gorgeous Ysa Makino/Stephen Yearick/Leigh Price GOWN! It's STUNNING! I worked with Imani at Mon Amie and it was a perfect pairing. Tina, the manager, was perfectly instinctual when pairing me with Imani. She was fun, personable and knew exactly the type of gown I was looking for. I came in with a solid idea of what I wanted and knew that a dramatic Yearick/Makino/Price aesthetic was ideal. I was a little underwhelmed with the gowns that they carried but when my Mother and I found the couture gowns in the back corner, I hit the jackpot! I realize that most brides are not interested in the dramatic and want a more simple and sweet dress. Hence the selection. However, with my searching and with Imani's help, the first dress I picked and tried on was IT! YES To the dress on EVERY level. Tears were flowing, and Imani was completely supportive as a "friend" would be. She was patient and flexible, creative and the best part...I was able to work with the designer directly through Mon Amie to make it my very own. With a few adjustments made, it's going to be a one of a kind. It is stunning and elegant and the service at Mon Amie was really lovely, thanks to Imani and the rest of those working that day. Tina was wonderful and I appreciated her working with the infamous Leigh Price to get me exactly the gown I envisioned. I cannot WAIT to get my gown in the Spring. It's going to be such a statement, a piece of wearable art and I am grateful to have found my dream gown with the team at Mon Amie in my corner. Cheers!
I want to start off by saying my experience at Mon Amie has been amazing. This was the third Bridal store I went to & going inside I knew I would find my dress because they have such a wide selection of dresses. Maxx is simply just the best! We sat down in a private dressing room with complementary wine & he got to know me first before trying on dresses. He made my whole experience so personal & FUN. It was the experience you dream of & should have. I came back a week later with my grandma & mom to YES to the dress & it was surly a moment I will always treasure. Maxx & the staff made this possible. I highly recommend Mon Amie Bridal Salon.
