Last week we swung by the grand opening of JLM Couture's new flagship boutique on Robertson Blvd, which was a fancy affair of bubbly, caviar, gourmet candy, macarons and intricate wedding gowns. Besides being a leader in the bridal design and manufacturing industry since 1988, what sets JLM apart from other salons is that instead of just hosting one designer, they come equipped with a team of talents to offer brides-to-be an array of options. JLM's designer roster includes Jim Hjelm, Alvina Valenta, Hayley Paige and Lazaro Perez, who we first fell for at A Soolip Wedding.
As for the digs, the boutique boasts two massive dressing rooms with three-way mirrors and even a video chat feature that allows brides to show gowns to their out-of-town family and friends, which is pretty genius. For clients seeking custom gowns, JLM also offers one-on-one consultations with their exclusive designers to help them dream up the perfect, one-of-a-kind design.
If you're looking to give JLM a spin, we definitely recommend hitting up one of their many trunk show events. Read on for the complete 2012 calendar.
