Trying on wedding dresses can be such an exciting time – for me it was the first time I really started to feel like a bride! If you’re ready to start looking for the gown of your dreams, you will definitely want to know about trunk shows. Trunk shows are free bridal salon events where you can browse a designer’s entire collection during a private appointment – sometimes there are even discounts! And Here Comes the Guide has a whole section devoted to trunk shows at recommended bridal salons.
If you’re looking for trunk shows in California, the New York Tri-State area, Chicago, the D.C. Metro Area, and Boston, the HCTG calendar lists upcoming designer trunk shows, and even lets you know which shows offer a discount.
To really make the most of your trunk show experience, Here Comes the Guide has some valuable Trunk Show Tips:
• Though trunk shows take place throughout the year, you’ll have the widest selection of designers from January – March when these events are more numerous.
• Trunk shows are by appointment only and fill up fast, so don’t wait to reserve your slot (and if you can’t keep the appointment, please be courteous and call to cancel.)
• Be prepared to make a purchase in case you find “the dress” in order to take advantage of possible show discounts. But don’t feel pressured to make a decision if you aren’t 100% convinced.
Find even more trunk show tips and info on the Here Comes the Guide blog. And since January is peak season for trunk shows, you’ll definitely want to start browsing their calendar for events in your area!
