Say Yes to the Dress
Canada premieres TONIGHT at 10 p.m. EST on W Network! Get ready to see
beautiful brides try on their dream dresses,
bridezilla vs. entourage drama and special appearances by Olympic bobsledder Emily Baadvsik and CFL pro Dimitri Tsoumpas. But first, in-house designer Rachelle Pollari and bridal stylist Joseph Richard Vernon reveal five juicy deets you need to know before tonight’s super exciting debut.
1. Location, location, location
Say Yes to the Dress Canada takes place at Amanda-Lina’s Sposa Boutique in Woodbridge, Ontario. "From the outside you’d think it’s a small store. But as soon as you walk through the doors, you’re in awe of how big it really is," says Pollari. "You’ll see beautiful flowers in the entrance, hardwood floors, sparkling chandeliers and all of the
wedding dresses, of course."

2. Designer names you need to know "Our boutique holds 1,000+
wedding gowns from over 17 designers. You’ll see dresses by Mori Lee, Eve of Milady, Cristiano Lucci, Victor Harper and Simone Carvalli. With all of those designers, I don’t think there’s a style we don’t carry," Pollari says.
3. Bridal fashion trends to watch "Definitely the
fit-and-flare, but the mermaid silhouette is still very popular. We’re seeing a lot of illusion necklines, where brides want to be covered up in the front but still have a sexy back. Satin is also a major trend," Pollari says. And believe it or not, white dresses are
so 2014. "We’re going for gold this year with our recent hockey win," jokes Vernon. "But seriously, for spring we’re going to see some pastel colours – think light lemon shades to start."
4. Meet the consultants "We try to pair our brides with the right consultant. We have so many different brides with different personalities and we want them to feel comfortable," Pollari states. "January is one of the best and busiest months during wedding season, so we have up to 14 consultants in the store to give our brides the best experience."
5. Bring on the drama! "If a
bride brings an entourage with too many people, she just gets more confused. She should bring her mother and best friend or sister to make it easier for her to decide. She shouldn’t bring friends who could be jealous of her and telling her the wrong things," Pollari recommends.
