What is a Trunk Show?

Our 2010 One of a Kind Meg Jewelry Trunk Show

Welcome to Wedding Trunk Show Season!

So many brides ask us, "What is a trunk show?"  A trunk show is when designers send amazing pieces, literally in trunks, to boutiques that carry the brand.  Designers send anywhere from 50 - 150 special items from their most recent collections that the boutiques do not necessarily always carry, to give brides all over  the city a chance to see, feel, and fall in love with these pieces.

Some perks about trunk shows are that you have a chance to see pieces that will be in Chicago one week and New York the next.  You don't have to spend all that extra money to travel to New York just to find the jewelry and accessories of your dreams.  Also, be on the look out for our designer attended shows.  It's a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk with the actual person designing your wedding accessories.  They have first-hand knowledge of gown designs, colors, styling and can create a piece for you.  Some shows also give you an incentive or discount of you purchase during the trunk show dates.

You must be quick to take advantage of this opportunity, because trunk shows typically last only two to three days.  You may see and try on a headpiece or bracelet you love one weekend and may never see it at our boutique again.  If you don't purchase during the trunk show dates, the discounts from designers are no longer honored.  But on the plus side, you'll be the only bride in Chicago wearing something no one else has!
