This weeks Paloma Blanca bride was submitted by her Authorized Retailer, Elizabeth’s Bridal Manor! Liz sent us a stunning picture of Rebecca and Bryan, thanks Liz for passing that on!

Our Paloma Blanca Bride Rebecca getting ready beside her Style 4364 wedding dress!

Rebecca found her Paloma Blanca Style 4364 wedding dress from our Classic Collection at Elizabeth’s Bridal Manor in Northville, MI. When we reached out to her, she was kind enough to share some of her wedding memories with us.

How did you know your dress was “the one”?
Rebecca: "After I tried the dress on, I knew it was my dress because I didn’t want to take it off! It just felt like it showcased my personality and the theme of my wedding perfectly: classic, timeless, elegant and yet fun!

What was your favourite aspect of your wedding?
My favorite aspect of my wedding was the theme that was infused throughout. From the engagement ring to the flowers, music to the dress – it was sophisticated, stylish, and elegant – and yet everyone had a blast!! It was exactly what I wanted and I had the time of my life.

Tell us about your wedding day style, what inspired it?
At first I wanted to wear my hair down for my wedding but when my stylist saw my dress, she immediately said “That is a red carpet dress and you are going to have red carpet hair.” I think everything went together perfectly. The belt I wore with it provided the finishing touch, and my hair really showcased the dress! I felt like a princess all night long and that is how brides are supposed to feel. It was the happiest day of my life!

This week we’re featuring a Paloma Blanca bride that got married right here in Toronto, at a well known landmark here in the city. Jen - wearing our beautiful Paloma Blanca Style 4310 - and Jesse tied the knot at a fantastic ceremony at Steam Whistle Brewery and shared some photos with us that were taken at other known Toronto landmarks like the CN Tower!

How did you know your dress was “The One”?
Jen: “I was a bit nontraditional and brought my fiancé to my dress appointment. Rather than guessing what he would like, I wanted to make sure he thought I was the prettiest he had ever seen me on our special day. Both of our mothers were also there to be the tie breaker if we could not decide. When I put on the dress, it fit like a glove to my body shape. It was a design that we felt could look timeless and elegant. It also fit our venues look and the look of our wedding. It was breathtaking – and comfortable!

What was your favourite memory from your wedding day?
Our wedding goal was to be something unique and different, while still keeping to the traditional format of a wedding. Picking a favorite memory is difficult because we tried to put little touches into each detail. The ceremony for example took the traditional wedding ceremony and twisted the traditions a bit. We had all of our guests read out loud stating ‘Jen and Jesse, even though we have chosen to read this in a monotone voice, we are very enthusiastic about your marriage and future life together. We would love to shout it from the rooftops, but reading in a group is very awkward and hard to communicate tone. We love you both and can’t wait to dance the night away.’ We also developed a new Canadian tradition of the ceremonial first beer. We had a server walk down the aisle with a tray of two Steam Whistle beers. Jesse and I opened our beers, poured them into one glass and each drank out of the glass. When Jesse and I started our vows to each other, we tried to keep them sweet but also funny. When we had our first kiss, our bridal party held signs behind us stating ‘congrats’, ‘hooray’, ‘finally’, etc.

What inspired the theme of our wedding?
Jesse and I enjoy beer as the flavors and ingredients can be very creative. Beers are usually enjoyed after a long hard day or in a social setting with friends. When we decided to have our wedding in Toronto, we knew Steam Whistle was a great destination as it focused on beer, but had the rustic modern warehouse look we really enjoyed. With a brewery as your wedding venue, how could you not have a fun party? We planned all of the wedding festivities to be centered around the sentence “We are here for a party, oh yeah – Jen and Jesse are getting married”. The sentence is a bit weird, but it ensured we focused on making a fun party for our guests rather than focus the attention all on us. We knew if we gave them good food, fantastic music, cute details – they would leave with a smile on their face.

Paloma Blanca Style 4506 from our Fall 2014 Collection features delicate layers of tulle and lace perfectly paired together to create a timelessly romantic wedding dress.

Front view of Paloma Blanca Wedding Dress Style 4506 with a close up of the ruched tulle bodice.

The strapless Alençon Lace bodice is covered with a cross-over ruched tulle overlay that adds an extra layer of texture while allowing the lace design to peek out of the tulle. A removable latte ribbon at the natural waist separates the ruched tulle of the bodice from the gathered tulle of the skirt, and includes a flower embellishment.

Close up of the lace appliques that are scattered all over the skirt of Paloma Blanca Wedding Dress Style 4506.

Carefully selected lace appliqués are scattered under light layers of tulle all over a classic and clean A-line skirt.

Back view of Paloma Blanca Wedding Dress Style 4506 with a close up of the back detail.

The centre back on this bodice comes down to reveal lots of back, a much sought-after quality for many modern brides.

 

Close up of the hem lace detail on Paloma Blanca Wedding Dress Style 4506.

Style 4506 is full of beautiful lace details mixed in from top to bottom, like the hem lace that continues around the entire skirt. A perfect veil match for this dress would be our Veil Style V415F in Chapel length- the matching scattered lace appliqués start right at the shoulder and are scattered along the edge of the veil to give the same scattered lace effect the skirt does.

Can’t you picture yourself walking down the aisle in this classic layered wedding dress? Call an Authorized Retailer near you to book an appointment today!
