Earlier today, we filled you in on all of the designer bridal trunk shows going on at local Philly bridal salons in the upcoming week or so, so it only seems appropriate that we share this helpful little article with you, too, that we found today.
It imparts 10 things to know when it comes to shopping trunk shows—which is helpful, because the thing is, trunk shows just aren’t as regular a part of normal shopping as they are wedding-dress shopping. Sure, your fave boutique may host a trunk show with one of their more popular jewelry designers or something from time to time, but when it comes to bridal salons and trunk shows, well, it’s a real thing. They offer the opportunity for game-changing discounts, to see styles the store doesn’t normally have, and even in some cases, to meet the designer, which can benefit you in all sorts of ways beyond it just being cool. I remember when one of my girlfriends bought her dress, the designer happened to be at the store, and he ended up making her a custom long-sleeved lace jacket to wear over her dress in church, which is exactly what she wanted but couldn’t find.
So read up! And then get shopping.
