I’ve been in love with the Jim Hjelm dress below for about 4 months. I’ve gone to two separate appointments to try it on and for various reasons (shipping issues, etc) both times the dress was NOT at the shop when I arrived for my appointment I was completely devasted and in tears the second time and was thinking this was not for me because of the bad luck. However, I’m finally going to try on the dress this weekend and I’m so, so excited! Here is a link to the Jim Hjelm dress where you can see multiple views of the dress: http://www.jlmcouture.com/Jim-Hjelm/Bridal/Fall/2009/Style-8962
Because I’ve put so much weight on the Jim Hjelm dress being “the dress” I’ve been trying on dresses this week just in case I need a backup if the Jim Hjelm doesn’t work out. So today I fell in love with the Monique Lhuillier dress below. I love how it’s a fairy tale like dress. The one thing I’m hesitant about is the dropped waist. I also wanted to note that I’d wear this dress with an ivory sash and not the brown one that is pictured.
Since I’m not pictured in the dresses here’s a little bit of info about me …I’m 5′ 7″ and street 6 with dark brown hair. Any helpful thoughts and opinions are appreciated!

But I’m all about some ruffles. And some Jim Hjelm.

I’m in love with Jim Hjelm dresses!!! I voted for the first one, but hesitated for a while because the second dress is very gorgeous too! I don’t think that you could go wrong with either of them 🙂

I have to be honest. I love Jim Hjelm, and my sis wore a Jim Hjelm gown at her wedding and I almost picked one out all the way back when too..and it’s gorgeous!
But I have to go with my gut on this one, and my gut says Monique all the way!
I love the idea of a darker ribbon at the waist, doesn’t have to be brown, just in your colors as I think it’s so darn slimming as an effect and the whole lines of the dress are just drop.dead.gorgeous.
You picked out two winners, and they’re both lovely. But the one with the more ‘oomph’ is to me, the Monique Lhuillier.

I like the ML as well, but both are beautiful dresses. You’re 2 inches taller than me and a size 6, so I’m sure you can do the dropped waist!
