What is a Trunk Show (and why should I care)?

If you take a quick look at September's Bride's calendar, you'll see that we have two Trunk Shows scheduled for this spring. Perhaps you're wondering what a Trunk Show is and what it means to you as a bride.

A Trunk Show is when a designer provides his/her new and favorite gowns to a bridal boutique for a (very) limited period of time. Typically, this group of gowns will travel from store to store. It is a big deal for a boutique to warrant a trunk show, as it means that that particular boutique is respected by the designer.

For the bride, this means that a bridal store will have approximately a dozen gowns in the store that they wouldn't have normally and that you can try them on, learn more about the designer, and order a gown out of a special collection. Sometimes, a discount is offered on gowns ordered during the Trunk Show, too!

For our first scheduled Trunk Show this spring, by Novissima, you will have a chance to preview the gowns at our Open House Event on February 7 (see previous post for more info). You may then make an appointment to try on the gowns on February 8 & 9. (We will reserve a fitting room for walk-ins, too!)

Lace, vintage, unique, classic, glamorous, European; if any of these words describe what you're looking for in a gown, you simply must plan on attending this Trunk Show! We will be offering a 10% discount on all Novissima gowns ordered during the Show. We will also be showing veils by designer Jennifer Leigh that will complement the gowns beautifully!
