Couples are still trying to navigate saying, “I Do,” amid the pandemic and many local bridal shops are still doing their best to bring a bit of normalcy to brides.

If you are still looking for “the one” — your dress, that is, there are several bridal trunk shows to add to your agenda.


I Do Bridal Couture in Baton Rouge is hosting a Blue Willow by Anne Barge Fall 2021 Collection trunk show from Feb. 25 – 27. The store notes that the Blue Willow collection still has the same aesthetic and style as typical Anne Barge collections but offers brides a more moderate price point.

And if you can’t make it to the Baton Rouge location, the Blue Willow trunk show will travel to the I Do Covington location the following weekend from March 5-6.

Appointments are required for each location. Schedule online at


Also, next weekend, Linen Jolie Bridal in Metairie is hosting the Haute Bride Designer Showcase March 4-6. Haute Bride has a host of accessories that include Swarovski crystals and what they consider the best materials available. The showcase will include jewelry, hair pieces, veils, belts and more to complete your wedding day look.

Special pricing and incentives will be applied, and the event is by appointment only. Schedule online at
