Everything You Need to Know About Bridal Trunk Shows

What Is A Bridal Trunk Show?

Trunk shows are fantastic opportunities to find your dream wedding dress. A bridal trunk show is an event where a bridal store is able to have all the dresses from a wedding gown designer’s newest line available for their customers to try on. Trunk shows typically only last one to three days and only feature dresses from one particular designer.

Why Do Bridal Stores Have Trunk Shows?

Typically, bridal boutiques only carry a certain number of wedding dresses from a select group of designers. Therefore, trunk shows allow bridal stores to offer their customers the opportunity to see and try on dresses that they normally do not have in their store. In addition, brides can often see the newest designer gowns exclusively during the trunk shows before they are available in stores.

Why Should Brides Go To Trunk Shows?

There are several benefits of attending trunk shows. First, during a bridal trunk show is the only time that a bridal store is able to give discounts on wedding dresses, so it is a great time to get a deal on a brand new designer gown! Second, brides will be able to see the newest style trends and try on dresses that are normally not in stock.

5 Things To Remember When Going To A Trunk Show

  1. Make an appointment. Trunk show weekends are some of the busiest days at bridal stores so to make sure that you can be seen by a consultant and get the most out of your experience, make sure to schedule an appointment. At Mia Grace Bridal, we also offer extended hours during trunk shows to make sure that every bride that wants to attend the trunk show can.

  2. Come ready to make a decision. Remember that these dresses are only at the store for a limited number of days and then they are gone. Also, the special discounts are only available during the trunk show dates as well. So, be ready to make a decision if you fall in love with a dress because unfortunately you may not be able to try it on again.

  3. Bring only your most trusted advisors. Finding your dream wedding dress is a big decision and sometimes having too many opinions at your appointment can make it difficult to make a decision. We recommend just bringing only those closest to you to the appointment.

  4. Come with an open mind! There will be lots of new styles that you can try on, don’t be afraid to try something new. The worst that came happen is that you don’t like it.

  5. Most of all, just have fun!
