DO YOUR RESEARCH
Research the designer that's being showcased - the shop will be primarily presenting the featured designer so make sure you are interested in their styles to get the most from your experience.
The dresses at a trunk show can be on the small side (UK8/10) the reason for this is they're usually the samples used by designers at catwalk shows and photoshoots, so they tend to be ‘model size’. That doesn’t mean however you’ll be unable to try on, it all depends on the cut and shape of the dress and bridal consultants can work wonders to show how the dress could look on you. If however you’re worried about sizing then call the shop before hand and ask or if there’s a particular dress you like ask if they could get it in a larger size for you.
NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON’T
A designer weekend in just that, a weekend! This means you probably won’t get the chance to come back at a later date and re-try the dress on again so make sure you take along your trusted advisors on the day. Your mum, gran, sister or bridesmaid, anyone who’s opinion you value and trust, so if you find your dream dress you’re in the position to make the decision that day.
Most bridal shops will offer a discount at a designer weekend so take advantage of it - come ready to make a decision because the discount will only apply at the event, not after.
