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.
In the late 70s, Harry’s two sons Marty and Shimmy Bernstein began working for the family business. Working within every area of the company, from shipping and marketing to sales and design, Harry’s sons envisioned expanding the business. Eager to spread their wings, Marty and Shimmy worked together to increase distribution to hundreds of stores throughout the United States. This cross-border success ignited a new vision - Blue Bird Dress became Paloma Blanca and the company soon started to focus exclusively on the creation of bridal gowns and accessories.
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.
Based on unique and innovative designs, an uncompromising commitment to quality and professionalism, a standard of service that is second-to-none and through the development of trusted relationships, Paloma Blanca has earned a loyal worldwide client base. Paloma Blanca bridal gowns can be found in the best bridal shops in over 200 major cities around the globe.

Out of respect for other customers and stylists, please limit the number of people you bring. One or two trusted allies can usually help you get the job done.

Bella Sera is located at 85 Andover Street (Route 114) in Danvers, MA. We have a private lot with ample parking. You will enter the building under the black Bella Sera awning next to our friends at Giblees Menswear. Please note we are located on the second floor and offer a stair lift.
We ask that you do not take photographs during your appointment per the request of our designers. We are happy to provide you with a style number and website information to show off your dress to friends and family.
We recommend starting the wedding gown shopping process as early as 12-months before your special occasion date, as your dress should be ordered 9-months prior. Gowns can take some time to come in once ordered, and this ensures that you’ll have time for fittings with all you have going on!
