A trunk show is when a specific designer comes to a bridal salon with his/her entire collection as well as preview the new collection that may not yet be in stores.
The bride has the privilege of meeting the person or representative who is behind the creative needle. Some salons giveaway prizes and gift bags.
An easy way to find out about wedding trunk shows is to call your local wedding salon or search on the bridal designer’s websites and the bridal salon websites. Most designers and salons will have a current calendar of when and where their trunk shows will be held.
Some bridal salons have an incentive: if you buy the gown during the designer’s trunk show, they will give you a “trunk show” sale price.
