Hello Brides! We know the whole wedding planning process can be a bit overwhelming when you first start your bridal journey. Today we're going to explain what wedding gown trunk shows are and how to find them!
What's a trunk show?
A trunk show is when a bridal designer sends us new gowns or accessories for the boutique to carry for a limited amount of time. The Bustle hosts plenty of trunk shows throughout the year for all our designers. It's great because it's the perfect time for brides to see the designer's newest collection, or trending styles we might not typically have in the boutique.
When are trunk shows?
There are a couple of ways to find out when trunk shows are being held and where! You can always visit our website, where we list all our upcoming events and trunk shows for the year. If you're looking for a specific designer's trunk show, go to their website and they typically list the dates and locations of their trunk shows near you.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes, The Bustle prides itself on great customer service! Part of that experience is providing every appointment with a private room for you and your party, as well as your own bridal stylist to answer any questions you may have. You can book appointments with us online or by calling us at 858-523-9254.
What to keep in mind
Trunk shows are only in shops for a limited time. Gowns immediately get shipped back to the designers once a trunk show ends and the shop will no longer have those gowns in store to come back and try/see again. The Bustle does not own the Trunk Show gowns/accessories so we must return the products to the designer. Luckily, the gowns can still be ordered even after a trunk show ends. Keep in mind, any trunk show discount offered by the designer are only valid for the time of the trunk show. Once the trunk show ends, the discount no longer applies.
