November brings big things for the Greater New Orleans bridal scene. Brides can look forward to two trunk shows and one store opening.

First, Town & Country Bridal on St. Charles Avenue has two events going on in the store. On Nov. 4 Town & Country announced on its Instagram account that the boutique will no longer offer a mother of the bride/groom room. In order to make room for new bridal gown purchases, this week only (through Friday, Nov. 8), all mother of the bride/groom dresses are 50 percent off.

Additionally, Nov. 8 through Saturday, Nov. 9, Town & Country is hosting a Martina Liana trunk show. In an Instagram post, the boutique said it will have many Martina Liana gowns in store but will also offer brides special pieces to create their own Martina Liana gown. Special incentives will apply and the trunk show is by appointment only, which can be booked on the boutiques website here.

I Do Bridal Couture in Baton Rouge is also having a big month. From Nov. 8 to Nov. 16, the boutique will host an Amsale x You trunk show where brides have the ability to create their dream wedding gown piece by piece. In store, brides will view a selection of skirts, bodices and belts to mix and match. The trunk show is by appointment only and you can either call the store at 225-361-0377 or book online at

In addition to its Amsale trunk show, I Do Bridal Couture’s new second location in Covington is set to open on Nov. 16 and is taking appointments now. The store’s Instagram feed includes teasers about many upcoming trunk shows planned at the new location in the near future, but for now, you can call the Baton Rouge location (phone number mentioned above) to make your appointment.

Yesterday in an Instagram post, Pearl’s Place Bridal on Severn Avenue in Metairie announced it is expanding its team. Pearl’s Place is hiring in its sales and housekeeping departments for both full and part-time positions with guaranteed salary, bonuses, incentives, paid vacation and insurance. If interested, apply in store at any time Monday through Friday.
