Paloma Blanca seems to be in the $2000-$2500 range, give or take.  Jim Hjelm can be closer to $3000-$4000, generally speaking, but some are less.

Don’t have any pictures of me trying them on, sorry.

I’m a Paloma bride! I just ordered 3906.  It’s fabulous silk dupioni that is so light and airy it’s a dream.  I too, loved all the Paloma’s I tried on.  The fit is fabulous too.  I’m going to add a super sparkly belt with it to jazz it up a little.  Here are a few pics – the front and back.

I loved both of these designers as well!  I ended up going with the Jim Hjelm Blush collection, priced around $1,200.  Here’s my dress (on the model of course!)

Of course I ended up spending more on a sparkly belt to add some bling!

Here is my Paloma Blance 4062.  I didn’t like it at all when I saw it on the website, but loved it when I tried it on!  I am going to add some crinoline underneath because the front falls a bit flat.  The fabric is amazing.
Price $2040

I’ve tried on both and, for me, Jim Hjelm is by far the better designer if you can afford him. His dresses are beautifully made and are so unique. This dress (8151 from Fall 2011) is breathtaking in person.  It was a definate contender for me but I went with a Lazaro in the end. Sorry, I dont have photos of me in the dress.

I haven’t said “yes” to the dress yet but I’ve loved 3 paloma dresses. They fit beautifully and the details are really good quality. 

After I tried these on I actually fell in love with a La Sposa gown, but If I hadn’t I think I’d be picking the second one Smile

@balle29 – your dress is beautiful on you!  I didn’t recognize it as a Paloma, so I looked at it one the website.  It looks so much better on you than on their “official” picture!

@Kemma – Thank you!! @pattnic – thank you! I know, the official picture DOES NOT do it justice at all. It is so much more beautiful in person 🙂
