What Is A Trunk Show and Why Should You Attend One?

Trunk shows are a wonderful opportunity to experience a wide selection of a particular designer and its collections. So take advantage of these showings as bridal boutiques usually do not carry full inventory of one particular designer.  Enjoy the opportunity to see the latest in bridal fashion and have fun trying on dresses you normally won't be able to.  

Bridal stores usually host weekend showings and beginning on a Thursday or Friday and running through the weekend while some showings can be a couple of weeks. 

On occasions, the designer himself or herself will participate in the showing.  Do make effort to attend these special events, as it's not only great to see a full range of the special collections, but to get designer's personal suggestions for you and any recommendations for custom alterations just elevates the shopping experience to a higher level. Our creative designer truly enjoys working with brides-to-be and an added perk to attend these shows, discounts are offered to dream dress purchases during these trunk shows.

Connect with our social media for all trunk show information and reminders.  When you would like to attend a showing contact the bridal store to set an appointment. This will reserve a space for yourself and is usually recommended by the bridal stores. 

With the date and time set, now who to bring along with you? A suggestion is to bring a close group of family members and friends to give advice and offer suggestions.  

How should you prepare for the trunk show? Prior to the appointment date, be sure to wear clothing you are comfortable in and won't be a fuss.  No need to get professional hair and makeup, but having a little bit of make up will help you envision the bridal look as a whole. Staying positive and open to suggestions will just propel this special dress shopping experience into a great time for all.  

It's good to plan about a year ahead for adequate time for wedding dress shopping. This time is needed so you can visit different trunk shows and brick-and-mortar bridal boutiques as finding your dream dress usually does not happen at the first go. As you try on different styles and silhouettes, you will gain confidence and preferences to which will become your dream dress. 

Finally, it's an advantage to attend trunk shows with an inspiration folder.  This folder can be of styles and images that you want for your dress.  This folder will not only show of your likes and preferences for dress and wedding theme, but at the same time express clearly to the bridal store what you're looking for in your dream dress.  

     For many brides-to-be, wedding dress shopping is the pinnacle of wedding planning.  Bridal trunk shows are great opportunities to see the latest in bridal fashions and best-sellers. So get connected with us for upcoming trunk shows happenings.
