Last month we hosted the Rivini Fall Trunk Show featuring Rivini expert, Indira Rivera. A Trunk Show is a prime opportunity to find your dream dress. Most stores only carry around eight samples from a particular designer. During a trunk show the designer sends in the whole collection for the bride to view during her personal appointment. The designer expert works as your personal stylist to help complete your look for the big day. They know all the custom changes and tricks of the trade. It was such a pleasure having Indira in for the Rivini Trunk Show. After working for Vera Wang for years, she made the switch to Rivini. She takes great pride in the line and has provided us with additional insight on one of our exclusive lines.
Join us on October 9th-11th for the Anne Barge Trunk Show with expert Jennifer Weinburg. The event is taking place inside Solutions Bridal Winter Park. Jennifer worked with McCaffrey Haute Couture for several years before moving over to Anne Barge Bridal. We are excited for the opportunity to have Jennifer in. Please give us a call to make your personal bridal appointment.

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!
- Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
- Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
- DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
- Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
- Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
- If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it without.it. Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
- Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
- Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
- Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
- When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
