The bridal world is buzzing around New Orleans and beyond. Add these preview and trunk shows to your calendar.

Town & Country Bridal is hosting a Martina Liana Designer preview show in the new boutique location at 1912 St. Charles Avenue Friday, Nov. 11, and Saturday, Nov. 12. The bridal line is sending many members of the team to the store for the show and, as a special surprise, head designer Martine Harris — who rarely makes appearances — will be in store to meet with brides. This is a preview of designs that won’t be in store for a while, so brides who attend the event will be the first to see the collection. This event is by appointment only and can be made by calling the store at 504-523-7027.

Additionally, Town & Country is hosting a Wona Concept trunk show later this month. Interested brides can shop the new collection from Nov. 24 – Dec. 8. Special incentives and pricing will be applied for the appointment-only event. Appointments can be made online here or by calling the store at 504-523-7027.

Linen Jolie Bridal, Town & Country’s Metairie sister store, is hosting a sample sale this week – today, Nov. 8, and Thursday, Nov. 10. Select bridal gowns will be up to 75 percent off and weekday, plus after hours and evening appointments are available. You can book a reservation online here.

Additionally, Linen Jolie is currently hosting a Toni Federici trunk show through Nov. 26. This show offers brides an opportunity to find a handmade veil or custom piece that will match their bridal look. Special incentives and pricing will be applied. You can book online here.
