Ok so this wedding dress shopping can be a bit of a minefield, from when to start looking, to which boutiques to visit. Let alone when someone throws in a statement like ‘I’m off to a Trunk show’ I mean really… a Trunk show….what on earth is that?
So, here’s what a Trunk show is:
It is an event which may run for a day or for an entire weekend where a Designer of a Bridal Collection comes to the boutique with their entire collection of wedding dresses. I know what you’re thinking, why don’t we stock the entire collection. I wish, oh wish I could, but it just isn’t feasible for a little boutique like mine to stock all of the dresses, plus it would actually bankrupt me! So twice a year we get the opportunity to have the full collection available for you lucky brides-to-be.
Why it’s great to attend a Trunk show
If you love a certain Bridal Designer and you ‘pin’ all of their dresses and stalk them on Instagram (let’s face it we all have one!) then it’s a bit like a book-signing or meeting a celeb. Not only can you talk to the Designer (eek!), you will also be able to find out a little more about the dresses and if there are any specific requirements then they’ll be on-hand to help. Plus isn’t it fab to tell your friends that you met the face behind the brand.
Is a Trunk show a Wedding Dress sale?
Technically no, as the dresses are all current collections and often brand-spanking new to the collection they aren’t ‘sale’ dresses. However ofter there is a promotion on the dresses, or an incentive such as big a dress and get a free veil.
