As you start to think of wedding ideas for your special day, you will have many questions and concerns regarding the various tasks you need to accomplish. One thing in particular you may be wondering is what is a trunk show? A trunk show is an event held mostly by bridal salons which features a certain designer. Brides have the opportunity to preview the designer’s entire collection, including wedding gowns that may not always be carried in a bridal salon. The wedding gowns are sent directly from the designer to the salon to be displayed for one weekend. A representative from the designer’s studio is usually available to answer any questions the bride might have about the wedding gown.
The trunk show appointment policy varies in different stores. The bride should make an appointment with the store to ensure that she will have enough time for a consultation. A trunk show appointment is different from a regular appointment because the wedding gowns are only there for one weekend. The representative is able to suggest custom changes in order to create the perfect gown for the bride.
Brides are encouraged to bring someone along to help choose their gown. Bring someone whose opinion you trust and who will be helpful and supportive in your search. Since the trunk show does not last long, the bride should bring someone who will help them make a final decision once they find the perfect gown. Avoid bringing too many people, lots of opinions can get confusing. Consider bringing friends to view your fittings to save you from feeling overwhelmed during your appointment!
