We sat down with local Newport bridal salon owner, Andi from Andria Bird Bride and asked about the great bridal salon mystery, trunk shows!
Q: Why do stores have trunk shows?
Andi: Bridal shops have trunk shows in order to show brides a particular designer’s full collection. It is a great way for bridal shops to display designs they don’t carry yet, and it gives brides who have an affinity for that designer the opportunity to come in and see the entire collection. If I know a bride is very fond of of a particular designer, I am always sure to let her know if I have an upcoming trunk show with that designer so that she can see and try on more styles.
Q: Why should brides come in during a trunk show?
Andi: There are two main reasons for brides to come in during a trunk show. First: it gives brides more options. Second: trunk shows almost always come with a discount of at least 10% off the gowns from the trunk show designer. Brides are never limited to just trying on the trunk show designer, so the gown shopping experience is just as open and stress-free as a regular bridal appointment but with more options!
Q: What upcoming trunk shows do you have?
Andi: My next upcoming trunk show is going to be a busy one. It’s Nicole Miller! Her modern, chic gowns are a favorite among the brides that come in. The trunk show will be filled with the newest collection, as well as best-selling styles. All gowns will be 10% off, and all bridal accessories in the shop will be 30% off with the purchase of a gown. The trunk show is Friday, April 8th, through Sunday, April 10th, and it is filling up fast! Call 401.924.3789 to book one of the final appointment slots!
Q: What is your favorite gown from the Nicole Miller trunk show?
Andi: My favorite gown from Nicole Miller is the Blake… no, wait, the Tonya…. okay, maybe…. I can’t choose!!
You heard her brides, there’s a potential to try on ALL the gowns you love and then, get a discount!
P.S. We are going to be doing a Newport Bride day at Andria Bird Bride this summer! Still figuring out the date and final details, but keep your eyes open!
