When it comes to Bridal Shows, Bridal Expo Chicago puts on one of the best! Just last week our designer gowns made an apperance on this windy city runway, and we were more than thrilled. Here are some of the highlights from the night!
This weekend not only calls for gorgeous California weather, but the Lazaro and Tara Keely Spring 2013 trunk show! Come meet Lazaro himself and chat all things wedding this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the JLM Couture Boutique in West Hollywood. Click here to make your appointment online!
We know by looking at today’s social media posts that weddings were on the brain with all the amazing ladies in white (and blush tones!) last night at the Golden Globes. There wasn’t a single look we didn’t love, but there were a select few that we couldn’t help but have a soft spot for!
Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca looked amazing in vintage Armani. She is paired here with our own Francesca’s bridal style- Jim Hjelm 8254
Haydan Panettiere looks incredible in this soft pink Roberto Cavalli gown, but we couldn’t help but think she would look just as gorgeous in this favorited Alvina Valenta style!
Lea Michele looked sensational in this white Elie Saab gown. If she was looking to walk down the aisle in something similiar, Alvina Valenta style 9302 is perfection!
Illusion necklines are all the craze right now in the bridal industry. We even have a few of our own that we are pretty smitten with!
It’s no secret that black bridesmaids dresses are becoming increasingly popular these days (and not to mention- so chic and totally classic). So we decided to round up our top 10 black bridesmaids dresses of the season! We hope you enjoy (and end up wearing one day!)

With this being our very first Christmas at the JLM Boutique, we are feeling extra festive this time of year. The holiday spirit is in the air at our little salon as garland hangs along the door trimmings and berry red flowers add an extra touch of warm holiday charm. No wonder they call this the most wonderful time of the year!
