We are excited to announce the arrival of Paloma Blanca here at Altar Bridal! Paloma Blanca is the sister brand to the Mikaella line. Our new gowns are beginning to arrive and we are elated to share them with our brides.
Founded in 1937 by Manny Bernstein, Paloma Blanca was first known as Blue Bird Dress. With its original location in downtown Toronto, Canada on the popular Spadina Avenue, the company began with a bridal gown and evening wear division. Manny’s brother Harry Bernstein also worked for the company and eventually took over the business from his brother. Continuing in the family tradition of offering unique bridal and evening wear designs and high quality manufacturing, Harry helped to maintain Blue Bird Dress as a leading design house in Toronto, making a name for itself across Canada.
Today the company continues to be family owned and operated and remains 100% Canadian made. Paloma Blanca’s flattering and inspiring designs have garnered a number of prestigious bridal industry awards. With a renowned reputation for designing and producing high quality wedding gowns with impeccable attention to detail, styling, fit and best-in-class service to brides and retailers, Paloma Blanca has generated worldwide acclaim and respect within the bridal industry.
The Paloma Blanca headquarters are located in Toronto, Canada and house both the creative design and the dressmaking process, including cutting, hand beading, assembly, finishing, quality control and distribution.
From the Designer: Every Paloma Blanca bridal gown made is deeply important to us and this is why we dedicate all our efforts and talent into design and quality. 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.
Gowns are magnificently crafted from the highest quality fabrics and stunningly accented with beautiful hand detailing and embroidery. Paloma Blanca bridal gowns offer the look, the feel, the elegance and the classic sophistication of high fashion couture gowns at an attractive price.
