Wedding Dress, Bridal Gown Bargain Hunting Tips

What is a Trunk Show?

A trunk is a special event that gives brides the opportunity to view and try on the latest collection of dresses from a specific designer. Trunk shows are generally hosted by a representative of the designer (if you are lucky, the designer will be there) and a local bridal dress boutique.

Most bridal boutiques carry a limited selection of dresses from each designer so a trunk show will give brides the chance to see and try on the entire line of dresses. It's also a great opportunity to ask the representative questions about his/her line of dresses.

Why Go to a Trunk Show?

Most bridal dress boutiques do not have showrooms for brides to view their collection of wedding dresses. Generally, boutiques carry only a handful of dresses for each designer. A trunk show is a great opportunity for brides to see the entire line of dresses for a specific designer. It's also a wonderful opportunity to talk to the representative and ask for his/her opinion about what would look great on you and the hottest trends.

Many bridal dress boutiques offer discounts for that specific designer's dresses during a trunk show. To take advantage of the discount, you may be required to make your purchase during your visit. However, if you already know what dress you want to purchase, it's a good idea to buy your dress during a trunk show.
