Updated: Jun 27

Hello Belles and Beaus! Today let’s get Carried Away with Trunk Shows! Many people see that a store is hosting a Trunk show and have no idea what that means.

Basically, a bridal gown trunk show is an event typically hosted by a bridal boutique featuring a specific designer where they showcase a collection of wedding dresses for a limited time, often over a week or weekend. During a trunk show, brides-to-be can view and try on a wider selection of dresses from a specific designer or collection than is usually available in the store. These gowns will always be special order only. They are loaned to the store for the customers to try on. They are not store samples so they can’t be sold OTR (off the rack).

 

Trunk shows often feature the latest designs or even exclusive preview pieces that haven't been released to the public yet. They provide brides with the chance to see and try on dresses that may not be available at other times or in other locations.

 

Designers typically either send all gowns in the same size or a variety of sizing. We currently have one show going on in store. One collection is feature in all size 12. This is how most shows work. They will send certain size in multiple gowns. Other designers may send two gowns from that line in two different sizes. No worry curvy queens . We have shows for you too! Those samples are usually a size 20W (women’s cut) or sometimes our curvy shows may be a variety of sizes starting at 20W and going up to size 28W!

 

Additionally, trunk shows often come with special promotions or discounts on dresses purchased during the event, making them an attractive option for brides looking for their dream gown. It's a unique opportunity for brides to find their perfect dress while enjoying a personalized shopping experience. You can always reach out to the store hosting to find out ship times ahead of time before you book a trunk show appointment.
