From a media release:
Dreams come true this winter as Corus Entertainment’s W Network captures all the excitement and joy of finding the perfect wedding dress with the premiere of Say Yes to the Dress Canada. The series features brides from across Canada as they shop for their dream dress with loved ones at the exclusive Amanda-Lina’s Sposa Boutique in Toronto. Each episode of Say Yes to the Dress Canada invites viewers to join wide-eyed brides as they face the exhilaration and emotion of saying ‘yes’, before they walk down the aisle and say ‘I do’. Say Yes to the Dress Canada premieres with back-to-back episodes Wednesday, January 7 at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on W Network.
Produced by Temple Street Productions in association with W Network and based on the popular format created by Half Yard Productions for TLC, Say Yes to the Dress Canada brings the heart of the U.S. series north to our beautiful Canadian brides. The series stars bridal stylist and fashion dynamo, Joseph, who brings his extensive experience working for some of Canada’s top fashion retailers and A-list celebrities to the show. It also features bridal boutique owners Sam and Rachelle, seamstress Maria and Amanda-Lina’s team of seasoned bridal consultants.
In Say Yes to the Dress Canada, brides-to-be are on a search for the perfect gown to match their style, image and budget. It’s not always easy with family and friends at their side offering their unfiltered opinions. Filmed at one of Canada’s leading bridal destinations, Amanda-Lina’s Sposa Boutique in Toronto, the series goes behind-the-scenes and uncovers the hurdles every staff member faces to ensure each bride is completely satisfied on what may be the single most important day of her life.
This season includes Canadian bridal appointments including Olympic Bobsledder Emily Baadsvik and fiancé, CFL star Dimitri Tsoumpas; Sharon, whose 88 year-old Matron of Honour and grandmother helps to pick out the perfect dress; best friends who fulfill a childhood dream of shopping for dresses together; and the bride who has tried on 50 gowns before coming to Amanda-Lina’s Sposa Boutique.
