Bridal Trunk Shows are a fantastic way to shop for an upcoming wedding. These fabulous “traveling dress” shows generally have several different designer collections to show off at once, so it is like a one stop shop for wedding wear. Now only do you get to see the wedding and formalwear up close and in person, a lot of times you can also try it on and pre-order your items if desired.
Another added bonus is that designers attending Bridal Trunks Shows are usually there on hand to give recommendations. And sometimes you can also be lucky enough to see the debut of a brand new collection that has not yet been offered to the public.
Bridal Trunk Shows are generally held at a bridal salon or boutique, or department stores. They will usually offer refreshments for you and your guests.
Attending a Bridal Trunk Show can be a wonderful experience for you and your wedding party. It’s a great way to get differing opinions and see what is available to you for your big day. This can be a huge relief when looking for wedding dresses, bridemaids dresses, or tuxedos, and can save you a tremendous amount of time and money.
Bridal Trunk Shows can generally be found by using your internet browser to search and also on websites and blogs that are devoted to weddings. If you are a preferred shopper, or have registered with a department store or boutique, you may also receive an invite to one of these fabulous shows. You may also ask you wedding planner (if you have one) if she knows of any upcoming Bridal Trunk Shows or can possibly help you locate one.
If you have a particular designer or store that you are interested in, visit their website and look for an event calendar, or a place to sign up for their special offers and/or newsletter. This can also be a great way to get an invite to an upcoming show.
Perhaps the best thing about attending a Bridal Trunk Show is not only the experience, but the savings. Most bridal boutiques and department stores will offer you a discount if you order at the time of the show. You can expect to see anywhere from 5-20% discount on bridal items, dresses, tuxedos, etc. Sometimes you will also be offered a special gift for attending as well, which of course if just another added bonus of attending.
You really can’t go wrong attending a Bridal Trunk Show. Even if you decide not to order anything at the show, you can still get some amazing ideas and have a wonderful time.
