For more than 70 years, thousands of brides have traveled to Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City to find their wedding day looks. From the moment you walk through the doors, you’ll feel the magic of Kleinfeld. Not only does Kleinfeld have 30,000 square feet filled with the largest selection of wedding dresses in the world, it also has the greatest professional staff of over 200 employees who are dedicated to finding and perfecting your bridal look.
Today we’re giving away *all* of our insider secrets on trunk shows! For those unfamiliar with the term, trunk shows are events where a designer brings their entire collection of new dresses to a bridal salon. Trunk shows typically happen over the weekend and the designer or brand representative is in-store with the dresses. Though, since Kleinfeld carries the largest selection of bridal gowns – every day feels like a trunk show! Whether your Pinterest board is filled with Randy Fenoli dresses or you’re a lover of all things Pnina Tornai, there’s a number of perks to shopping during a trunk show that many brides aren’t aware of. Get the scoop, below.
A Chance at a Special Trunk Show Offer
Worried you’ll fall head-over-heels for a dress that’s just a smidge out of your budget? Not to worry, there’s always a good chance that a designer will provide brides with a special offer such as a discount! Which, *BONUS*, makes it totally acceptable to splurge on a pair of shoes to walk down the aisle in!
Meet with a Designer or Brand Representative

During your appointment, the designer or brand representative is at the bridal salon. One of the great things about having designers at trunk shows is to not only be able to snap a few selfies with them, but to also solicit their advice on styles they think might work best for you.
Try On the Newest Collection of Dresses
One of the many benefits to shopping during a trunk show is that you’re able to try on dresses from the designer’s newest collection that isn’t usually in-store. Pro tip: Stalk the designer’s Instagram to be able to show your consultant the styles you love at the beginning of your appointment! Looking for something specific? Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and inquire about a specific style you’re dying to try on prior to shopping.

Brides often find themselves stuck between different features of two different dresses. Others fall in love with one dress but wish something was slightly different. That’s why shopping during a trunk show is so great, as designers will often work with you during your appointment. You’ll be able to discuss customizations, plus, there’s a chance the designer will also sketch up a personalized look, just for you.
Choose from a Wide Variety of Dresses
If you happen to be someone who isn’t crazy about the designer trunk show happening while you shop, that’s perfectly fine. You are free to try on any dress, by any designer, at your appointment.
