Maggie Sottero is proud to partner with our Authorized Retailers around the world to offer one-of-a-kind experiences for you to say ‘yes to the dress’ at. Bridal events highlight different styles of gowns to showcase the newest seasonal collections, or even test new designs that are not even in production yet to get feedback from within the marketplace! They are usually collaborative events where you can meet with wedding vendors, network with other brides-to-be, or get a one-on-one appointment with a member of our design team to help you find your dream dress from the latest collection.
Different Types of Wedding Dress Retailer Events
Have we piqued your interest? Let’s take a look at some specific types of Maggie Sottero bridal events or wedding dress trunk shows you don’t want to miss.
First Look Event
This event allows you to try on the newest styles fresh off the runway-literally! These are the first samples, often worn only by models on the runway, and are shipped straight to a retailer near you from the newest collection. Extra samples are brought into the store that aren’t normally available giving you more inventory to choose from. This means you can choose your wedding dress before it is even available in stores! It’s your chance to be a trendsetter in bridal fashion.
We want to hear from you! At an Unveiled Event, we bring fresh, new designs that no one has seen before to hear your feedback. These events are an essential part of the design process. Brides just like you help decide what styles make it into the upcoming collections. What makes this type of event unique? You could leave the boutique with a one-of-a-kind design that you fell in love with if it doesn’t make it into collections down the line AND have the chance to work closely with our elite designers!
Calling all our beautiful, curvaceous brides! Want to have a curated selection of stunning gowns hand-picked just for you and your curves? This event highlights our best styles in sizes 18 and above from our expansive collection of dresses with design features that will have you feeling as fabulous as you look!
