What is a trunk show, anyway? 

Designer & wedding gown trunk shows are common, but brides rarely think about a bridal accessory trunk show- is this a thing?

Sure is! It's a great way to find ideas and inspiration for your dream wedding look; and maybe go home with the perfect finishing touches for your day.

The designer packs "trunks" with the latest collection & sends to partner salons for a limited time event, often including perks like exclusive designs, designer appearances & discounts - what's not to love?

3 more reasons we think trunk shows are a good idea:

1. Selection, selection, and did we say, selection? Most salons double their selection during wedding accessory trunk shows. You get to see & try on more options in one place than at any other time.

2. Dedicated time for the details. Oodles of focus & anticipation goes into selecting "the" gown, but there's often little thought about accessories. Yet it's those finishing touches that make the bridal gown your own, adding your unique personal take based on your style, wedding theme & setting. 

Taking time to style your ensemble as an expression of yourself will make every moment wearing it that much more special. Treat yourself to this experience & you'll be glad you did, pinky promise!

3. Customization. Searched online and found elements of different bridal veils you like (or sash, jewelry, headpiece) - but not everything you love in one piece? With so much to choose from, there’s a good chance you’ll find perfection at a trunk show. If not, maybe explore a custom creation made just for you.

The tiniest detail; tucking a colored crystal into the side of a headpiece to memorialize a departed family member, or working a monogram into your veil design, instantly transforms your accessories into treasured heirlooms and makes every moment wearing them more meaningful.

Trunk shows are a great opportunity to explore the perfect finishing touches for your white carpet moment; with loads of selection, dedicated time to the details, and custom design & personalization options. Learn more about our upcoming trunk shows and events here.
