After months and at least 15 trips to bridal stores in 3 states (I know, i''m crazy but I like to see everything that''s out there!) I finally ordered my dress. My mom bawled like a baby when I took her to see it so I figured that was a good sign


I ended up with the first designer whose dresses I fell in love with Jim Hjelm!
Not at all what I was looking for, but here it is....

Here''s the detail on the front. I love that the embellishment almost looks "branchy" for my fall wedding. And I got it in this antique color, thought it fit well with the venue & my skin tone

Thomperchik - Thank you!

Loves Vintage - Thank you for the kind words! I really love the rich look of the fabric too one of my fav parts


Hudson_Hawk - Thanks!

tlh - Thank you, I was so happy to find some sparkly detail I loved

meresal - Thanks! I was weary about the color the 1st time I saw it, but I love how it makes the satin shine

iloveprincesscuts - Thanks, I might have one or two more pictures. I bought it after a party night with my parents and FI and wasnt in the mood to be photographed much


violet3 - Thanks, the back really got me too. I hadnt found a dress until now that I loved the front and back equally - it was always one or the other!

Deelight - Thank you! It took a long time to find it but it was worth it

Definitely, Maybe - Thank you!


dcgator - It''s so beautiful in person, it really "fits" well on the dress I think. Almost looks like artwork IRL & very thought out


Clairitek - Thanks! I really wanted a JH but everything was looking blah...until this one


PearlDahhhling - You''re so sweet

Did you post your dress? I can''t find it.

VE that dress!!


that gorgeous Jim Hjelm was #2 on a very short list of dresses for me...and I would totally have been thrilled with it! (in fact, looking at it on you now is making me wonder if I made the right decision after all...
) I''m SO happy you''ll be wearing it on your special day--it looks absolutely 100% perfect on you!!!!

I LOVE it. Glamorous without being showy. One of my top ten favorite dresses on a PS bride.

luvbug your dress is amazing!! who is the designer? i am a little biased because it looks similar to mine. how do you plan on accessorizing? do you know what type of veil, shoes, etc.? the hardest part is definitely over! congratulations on finding THE DRESS!
