JLM Couture Celebrates 25th Anniversary

It is now Tuesday evening and another year has come and gone. Bridal Market for JLM Couture is officially over. We started with an amazing event Friday evening (lots of photos to be posted on our facebook pages!) followed by 3 days of craziness in our showroom. We are so thankful for all of the support we’ve received from our stores, amazing publications, and dear friends over the past few days. Without you none of this would be possible and we love you all!

Alvina Valenta Monday!

We are so excited to kick off this week with some amazing insight into the new Alvina Valenta Bridal Collection. Here are a few words from designer Jessica Williams:

“For this season’s Alvina Valenta bridal collection, I looked to French Deco and the illustrations of Georges Barbier as a starting point.  With gowns ranging from ethereal to architectural, the mood meanders a path of beautiful, romantic celebration, complete with champagne bubbles, bursts of florals and fireworks.”

Ahhh. The suspense! We can not wait to see her styles walk down the runway. The photo above of Jessica makes us want to jump out of our chair and right into Bridal Market!

Hayley Paige’s dream date on Valentines Day

I would have to say my ultimate Valentines Day would involve a spontaneous adventure! To be specific: a trip to Disneyland, complete with sequined Minnie Mouse ears and heart shaped rice krispies treats! Lucky for me, my Valentines Day came a bit early as one of my FAVORITE Hayley Paige & Jim Hjelm Blush accounts, Mon Amie in Costa Mesa, California charmed me with a magical evening in Walt’s world of magic after a fabulous trunk show this past weekend. Thus proving that sometimes a girl just needs a trip to Disneyland to reignite her inner sparkle.
