Wedding gown trunk shows and more happening around the Big Easy
The New Orleans bridal scene is buzzing with excitement over the next week. Stores are hiring, big name designers are bringing their collections in for trunk shows and pop-ups and new styles are arriving to ensure each Big Easy bride looks beautiful on her Big Day.
First up, The Bridal Boutique by MaeMe is hosting a Justin Alexander pop-up March 9 and 10. Not only is the Be You collection coming to the store with a 10 percent discount off of any Justin Alexander dress, but brides will also enjoy a little champagne while being primped at a Corey’s Salon “style station” and a free veil with the purchase of a wedding gown.
Brides are encouraged to schedule an appointment ASAP at mae-me.com/schedule-an-appointment
Next, we’re headed to Baton Rouge, where I Do Bridal Couture will host a Bliss by Monique Lhuillier trunk show March 8 to 10. The event is the second of a two-part trunk show experience that is the largest the store has seen to date.
