Tuesday’s Trendwatch – Trunk Show Benefits {re-post}

September 13, 2011

Yes, we are re-posting a blog post back from March.  You ask why?  Because it is THAT important that you re-read this just one.more.time.  We can not put enough of an emphasis on the benefits of attending a trunk show.  Now is the time to schedule, sooner rather then later….many boutiques are about to reach PEAK trunk show season.  We only want what is best for our brides!  – Jenn

The most exciting part of your Wedding is finding THE dress….. the ONE dress that seems to have just been made for you.  Its’ something you {probably} have dreamed of since you were a little girl and NOW is the time for you starting finding that right dress.  We have all flipped through Wedding magazines and gazed at the many, many pretty dresses but it can become quite overwhelming when you start to narrow down your options on what might suit you best.  There are so many silhouettes, fabrics and design details that can make or break that decision.  One of the best places to start is a local trunk show.  Many bridal boutiques host a designer trunk show at least once a month.  So you ask, how does this benefit you rather then just an appointment at your favorite boutique?  Well, we have the answer…..

A trunk show is where a dress designer {usually a brand rep} sets up shop in a local bridal boutique for a day.  During that time, brides-to-be will schedule appointments to view and try on as appropriate the ENTIRE line from that designer.  Usually, a boutique will carry only a few dresses from a specific designer – but attending a trunk show opens the door to so many more options.  In addition to being able to view an entire designer line, you will also have the assistance of someone affiliated with that designer.  This is someone who knows the dresses inside and out and can cater to your exact taste.  This gives you an even better chance of finding that exact dress of your dreams!  Now if THAT is not good enough for you, many designer also offer trunk show discounts – and thinking of your budget – even a 10% discount can add up to a few extra guests at your reception.

So call or visit your local bridal boutique and ask of they have any trunk show scheduled.  Go ahead and get an appointment now!  These spaces fill up fast….. and just think,  your dress could be there just waiting for you.
