Everything You Need to Know About A Trunk Show
If you’ve already begun your wedding dress shopping, you already know the process is not as simple as buying a pair of pants at a store. In the traditional way of wedding dress shopping, you find your dream wedding dress, wait a few months for it to arrive, and then start alterations to get your dress perfectly tailored to you. Well, there’s another unique experience for you to find your wedding dress, Designer Trunk Shows.
WHAT IS A TRUNK SHOW?
A trunk show is when a bridal boutique has a more complete or full range of gown samples on hand from a specific bridal designer. Styles can often be purchased at a discount if they are purchased during a trunk show. These events usually last for only a few weeks so when you find one, act fast!
A trunk show is a perfect opportunity for Brides who love a certain bridal designer and want to see a wider range of their styles.

HOW DOES A TRUNK SHOW WORK?
During a trunk show, the featured bridal designer will send an entire collection of their newest wedding dresses or their newest line, it can range anywhere from 10 to 30 wedding gowns! These gowns are available at the bridal shop for a designated period of time, usually 1-2 weeks. This gives Brides time to try on a wider range of new and fresh wedding dresses from their favourite bridal designer.
TRUNK SHOW VS. TRADITIONAL WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING
You might be thinking, “What’s the difference between the two appointments?” Everything from booking your appointment, trying on dresses, and placing an order for the dress will be the same however, the only difference is the price. A trunk show typically comes with a special offer for the featured wedding dresses, which is a great deal because discounts are not common in the wedding dress industry.
So if you’re set on buying from a certain designer you’ve been eyeing on or love, a trunk show is the perfect time for you to buy your wedding dress.
