What is a Trunk show?

Often misunderstood a Trunk Show is a sales event to showcase one designer’s collection of bridal gowns. Trunks shows are a unique opportunity to view and try on wedding dresses straight from the runway before they’ve been made available in stores as well as styles from previous seasons.

Why Attend a Trunk Show?
There are many benefits to attending these exclusive opportunities. Many dresses in trunk shows are hot off the runway and not yet available in stores so you could be one of the first to see the dresses and try them on! And if that’s not a big enough perk, some designers will bring dresses that aren’t available at stores, attend the trunk show and meet brides, offer discounts and custom changes, and of course their knowledge and expertise. Trunk shows are great opportunities for a fun, exclusive experience, especially if you find yourself liking multiple styles from the same designer.

When and Where Are Trunk Shows Held?
If you're in search of a trunk show you can usually find a schedule of upcoming events near you on both your local bridal salon's website and the designer's website. Trunk shows are usually two to three day events. These special events are by appointment only and do fill up quite fast, so if you are interested in attending, don't wait to make an appointment.
