Three is a Charm....

In this case...three is charming. We have happily added 3 fantastic new gowns from our top designers' 2012 line to our salon show room.

I dare you not to smile when you see Jim Hjelm #JH8206 . This gown is an adorable and flattering floral dream of a dress, sampled in a rich shade of peach with an ivory tulle skirt. Delectable.

Emerson 's arrival completes our 2012 collection from WTOO. In this case, we truly saved one of the best for last. The fit is immaculate, the beadwork is beyond beautiful, and, not to mention the great price.... "forgetaboutit"....this gown has so much going for it.

Lazaro's latest tulle design, LZ3209, is a princess's dream gown. The floral embroidered and beaded bodice is elaborate but delicate, and the full tulle skirt is fairy tale worthy. So lovely.

More Jim Hjelm 2012 Arrivals

JH #8210

Jim Hjelm styles 8210 and 8214 are the latest of this elite collection to arrive. This season has quite possibly proven to be their strongest yet, and among my top favorites. The styles are masterpieces on their own, yet versatile enough to be accessorized with personal touches for a one of a kind look. These gowns command attention with a sultry and sophisticated style.
Beyond perfection.

Grab a Spot for the Marisa Trunk Show!

Marisa may not be a designer that you have heard too much about....and for good reason. They keep their designs under wraps and choose not to advertise their gowns. They don't have to. These amazing dresses speak for themselves.

Marisa chooses to put their efforts into creating some of the most innovative and flattering collections out there, so brides reap the benefits.....and beautiful benefits they are.

Another Jim Hjelm Stunner...

The 2012 collection from Jim Hjelm has proven to be one of the most innovative and remarkable yet.

Style #8213 is obviously no exception.

Complete with beaded bodice and and flowy A-line skirt, this is sure to be a classic. The low back and delicate ribbon at the natural waist are signature Jim Hjelm characteristics, and the crystal encrusted bodice adds a touch of wow while staying true to its understated beauty.

Monique Lhuillier style #450015 would be a perfect pairing to this gown. The delicate chiffon and one shoulder design would be a great compliment to this spectacular style. Paired with Kendra Scott chandeliers in an ombre blue to lavender color combination, you are sure to have a super stylish bridal party!
