Upcoming Trunk Shows at JLM Couture Flagship Salon

Sometimes I think about how fabulous getting to plan another wedding would be — especially if it meant dress shopping at the amazing JLM Couture Flagship Salon in West Hollywood. Known for their incredible selection of gowns and top-notch service, JLM is a first-stop when it comes to picking out the white dress.  This November, they’re hosting three incredible trunk shows that are not to be missed!

From November 7-9, 2014 JLM Couture will host a Hayley Paige show with designs straight from the 2015 spring collection as well as a designer appearance by Hayley Paige. The Alvina Valenta collection will be featured from November 14-16, 2014 with a designer appearance by Jessica Williams and from November 21-23, 2014 the Lazaro trunk show will take place with a designer appearance by Lazaro! I mean, does it get more amazing than that?! Not only do these shows showcase off-the-runway designs by some of the industry’s top designers, but you’ll also get to take advantage of special pricing!

Finding your dress at a trunk show definitely has its advantages (spoken from a past bride who bought at a trunk show!). JLM Couture is offering brides who purchase their gown at any of the three November shows a 10% discount! To request your appointment, head over here or call 424.249.3909!
