Do you ever glance through a designer’s website and love everything you see on their page? But then you call around only to find that the bridal stores only have one or two of the dresses you are looking to try on? A trunk show might just be the opportunity you need to make an appointment for!
Many times during the year we have trunk show events. This is a great opportunity for you, the bride to be able to try on a large selection from one certain designer in our store. There are so many dresses made by the designers each season that we just can’t carry them all in our store. During trunk show weekends designers send us the current collection, or sometimes even a sneak peek for the next season. This way you have the chance to really see what the designer has to offer and try on more than you normally would be able to. Sometimes one of the designers themselves are sent to the store to help and show off their styles. These dresses are only with us for a short time, usually just a Friday and Saturday and then are sent back to the designer. This is a great opportunity to see so many more dresses than what is normally in the store.
The perk of coming to one of these shows is that there are usually a discount for that weekend, if you purchase your wedding dress. We all know planning a wedding is very expensive and saving anywhere you can is always exciting! Usually we offer 10% off your dress order during a trunk show.
Here are a few tips before booking your trunk show appointment:
Go onto the designer’s website and see what style of dresses they have. Is there a specific look you are going for? Make sure the designer has something you like and that appeals to you.
Be prepared to find “the dress.” Since you usually get a discount at these shows, make sure you are open to finding the dress of your dreams on and ordering it will you can get the best deal!
Trunk shows are by appointment and fill up quickly. Don’t wait too long to book your appointment, we usually suggest calling several weeks in advance to make sure you get one.
Be open to trying on dresses that you wouldn’t normally put on. Sometimes your consultant will surprise you and a dress that you didn’t find appealing on the hanger may look amazing on you!
Happy wedding dress shopping! If you are interested in coming to one of our trunk shows, the best places to find out about these events is on our website, Facebook page or on our Designer’s website.
