Last night saw the premiere of Say Yes To The Dress Canada; a local spin on the hit show that originated at Kleinfeld's in New York City. To celebrate the premiere, we tuned in and held a live Twitter chat with other viewers as they weighed in on the their favourite moments of the show.

Early on in the premiere, it was clear that glamour was the theme of the evening as we watched brides Amber L and Amy S both say 'yes' to some beautiful dresses. There were beaded bodices adorned with crystals and pearls, intricate embroidery with glimmering accents, and sparkle everywhere. Their choices had us thinking of some dazzling Paloma Blanca styles that also offer any bride the perfect hint of glamour:

Every Paloma Blanca bridal gown is deeply important to us, which is why we dedicate all our efforts and talent into design and quality. With more and more emphasis being put on buying locally and supporting local talent, here are just a few reasons why we are proud to offer a Canadian made product to the bridal community:

Service
Our knowledgeable team is always just a phone call or email away! When you contact Paloma Blanca, you are speaking to the people who oversee the manufacturing of your dress; from the very moment we receive your order, to the moment it's ready to ship off to our Authorized Retailers. We have never missed a wedding day in our 75 + years of business, and our dedicated in-house team strives to keep it this way.

Quality
Our gowns are magnificently crafted from the highest quality fabrics and stunningly accented with beautiful hand detailing and embroidery. Our passion for dressmaking has lasted nearly a century, and by keeping our dresses made in-house, it's a passion that our team can grow together on a daily basis.

By creating and producing all of our bridal gowns in our manufacturing centre in Toronto, Canada, we are easily able to conduct the quality control checks necessary to ensure every dress is finished impeccably, tastefully and to perfection.

It's All About The Bride
Since everyone from our designer, to our pattern makers, to our seamstresses, all work out of our manufacturing centre, we have the ability to make certain custom changes to your order. Have you found your dream gown but need to add extra length to the skirt? Or would you like to add straps to an otherwise strapless design? We can accommodate those changes for you. We want you to walk down the aisle in a dress that makes you feel beautiful and special; made just for you!

The picturesque backdrop of Lake Ontario was the setting for Ashley and Stirling's summer wedding in Oakville. The bride wore Paloma Blanca Style 4358, purchased at With Love Bridal Boutique, as the couple were married by the same reverend who baptized both of them.

Ashley shared a few more details from her wedding with us, along with some gorgeous images of her special day.

Where did you first see your dress?
Ashley: “I first saw my dress at With Love Bridal Boutique in Ottawa, Ontario. It fit perfectly the first time I tried it on so I knew it was meant to be!”

What was your favourite aspect of your wedding day?
It was all pretty amazing so that is a very hard question. I have a couple of moments that stick out in my mind when I think back on the day. The moment we were presented as husband and wife was such a surreal feeling. I will never forget it. I also loved our first dance. There weren't too many details that were up to my soon-to-be husband, however I left the first dance song choice up to him. The first time I heard the song was when we danced to it at the reception. He chose Lego House by Ed Sheeran whom we both love, it was a really special moment. Finally, I loved that we rented a photo booth, the guests enjoyed it so much and the best part was looking through all of the pictures and best wishes that were left in the guest book provided the day after the wedding.”

Best advice for brides-to-be?
Remember to take a moment to take it all in, the day goes by in a flash and you want to remember the important moments.”

What's one word you could use to describe your wedding day?
Unforgettable!”
