What Are Trunk Shows?

If you have worked wedding dresses for as long as La Reine’s team, then you have heard the term “trunk show” at least once or twice. Common along gown designers, these shows happen in a variety of boutiques. It’s a once in a lifetime experience that La Reine’s team hopes every Bristol bride gets the chance to be a part of!

So, what exactly is a trunk show?
To be put simply, a trunk show is a wonderful event where a gown designer or a representative from their company will travel to a specific boutique to show their new line of wedding gowns. Because bridal shops only carry a handful of designers and gown stylesny have the chance to try on gowns they might not otherwise see in the store. Bride’s have the opportunity to schedule appointments, try on items from their collection, and even meet with the designer to discuss their options.

In addition to chatting with your favorite designer and try on stunning wedding gowns, they feature even more at these shows than you could imagine! Many collections will include veils, headpieces, and sometimes bridesmaids dresses. This opportunity could give you the perfect look for your big day, all while visiting a single bridal shop.

Boutiques who have great working relationships with designers will be able to schedule some great trunk shows, especially as the wedding season begins to pick up for the spring and summer months. Brides waiting for their favorite designers to release their next collection bask in the opportunity to ask questions and opinions, and even make a final decision for their gown with the assistance of its creator.

Trunk shows are a staple in La Reine Bridal. Our team wants every bride to have a wonderful and unique experience when they enter our boutique, and one of the best ways to provide those moments is with the help of the designers themselves.
