The Jim Hjelm signature look is graceful sophistication, designed for today’s bride. That means modern shapes and silhouettes: accentuate your shape with a mermaid or drop-waist style or choose an A-line for a sleek, chic look. It also means feminine detailing that helps you feel (and look) ladylike.

Chantilly and Alencon lace, soft and sheer English net and other vintage-inspired materials create a sense of romanticism. The wedding dresses are soft yet chic with layers that create a dreamy elegance and light-as-air feeling. If you want to glide down the aisle, these may be the dresses to do it in!

In Spring 2014, Hayley Paige Gutman, the fresh-faced creator of Hayley Paige wedding dresses took over design at Jim Hjelm. The 2015 collection was released in October, and features updated takes on the classic Jim Hjelm look.

Hayley’s hand may be seen in the cascading and tiered skirts, a favorite style of hers. 1920s-inspired feather detailing and embellished embroidery in floral or garden themes feature heavily in the collection. Flower lovers will love the two gowns with larger-than-life rose stencils on the skirt and bodice.

For those not as interesting in botanical designs, other unique additions to Jim Hjelm gowns include horsehair trim, extravagant crystals and scalloped lace edges. Sleeved or sleeveless, these wedding dresses all have the same immaculate attention to detail and are eye-catching from all angles.

Jim Hjelm wedding dresses have the right balance of class and sass perfect for a black tie wedding or romantic garden setting. Modern detailing allows you to show a bit of your personal style without sacrificing that classic bridal look. The bride who chooses to wear Jim Hjelm has both discerning taste for timeless looks and attentive tailoring; there is no compromising on either in the dresses.
