What is a Trunk Show Anyway?

A trunk show is an event at the boutique where a wedding dress designer showcases their entire collection for a limited time. We host trunk shows throughout the year and it's a great opportunity to try on even a larger selection of dresses than are normally in store.  They are really fun, the energy is always buzzing, and the gowns are fabulous! It's the perfect time to say YES to your dream dress!

Why attend a trunk show?

There are so many reasons to attend one of our trunk shows and here are some of our favorites:

Shop brand new collections not yet in store.

Shop the entire collection. Even though we offer dresses from that specific designer in store, we don't have the entire collection in store. So it's a great opportunity to shop a larger selection of gowns!

Designers sometimes make an appearance at trunk shows, so it's your chance to get some one-on-one time with them. I mean who wouldn't want to say yes to the dress with the actual designer?

At many trunk shows you get the opportunity to customize your gown. Want to extend the train? Lower the back? No problem! Many designers allow customizations during trunk shows only.

When are trunk shows held?

Trunk shows are held throughout the year on select weekends.  Visit our website here to see our current schedule of shows. 

Tips to make the most of a trunk show:

Come with an open mind. We always recommend trying on a gown or silhouette you never thought you would. Don't limit yourself, you just never know what you may fall in love with! Make an appointment. Scheduling an appointment will ensure that you have a Stylist available to work one-on-one with you & that a fitting room will be reserved for you. Also, trunk shows fill up fast so be sure to schedule your appointment in advance. You can schedule an appointment here Be prepared to make a decision. Remember, these exclusive gowns are in store for the trunk show only, and can only be ordered during the show. So come ready to say YES to the dress! Do your hair & makeup. You don't have to show up with your full bridal look, however, it really helps to envision yourself on your wedding day if you come with hair & makeup done. Most important, have fun! Saying YES to the dress should be fun. Go with your gut, enjoy the moment, and don't put too much pressure on yourself.  If the dress checks all your boxes, and you can see yourself in it on your wedding day, you'll know it's the one!
