It's Trunk Show Season!

So the holidays have come and gone, the weather is bleak and cold, and there's just not a whole lot to look forward to in WNC until life starts blooming again in Spring, right? WRONG! Boy oh boy, do we have some things for you to get excited about! Our Asheville bridal shop has a full roster of trunk shows lined up between now and April, and we could not be more thrilled to offer these exclusives and incentives to our Wildflower brides! So, what is a bridal trunk show, you ask? Well, each designer will come out with 10-20 new styles every season, and us small independent bridal shops will pick up around 4 or 5 of those styles that we think our brides will like the most. A trunk show is when the shop receives ALL 10-20 gowns from the current season so that their brides have access to them and can try them on and order them, if desired. Not only do trunk shows allow brides access to gowns not otherwise available at the shop, but also gowns by the trunk show designer are usually all 10% off during the weekend of the trunk show. Double bridal whammy (in an awesome sort of way)!! So, if you find yourself falling in love with a particular designer, try to schedule an appointment for a trunk show in order to allow yourself the opportunity to browse the full collection, and of course take advantage of the discount!

So, do tell, which of these trunk shows are you most excited about? Our designers' aesthetics span the entire spectrum, from sleek and modern, to boho flower child, to glitzy glam! We have something for every bride!
