Miss Ruby Boutique is excited to host its very first Curve Trunk Show
taking place February 26 - 28!
If you are a curvy or full-figured bride who wants to know more about our Trunk Show or have questions about bridal gown shopping in general, you've come to the right place! We've compiled a list of FAQ's to address any questions you may have!
That way, you can learn more about this special event before scheduling an appointment!
What Exactly is the Curve Trunk Show?
We always have a selection of plus-size samples in store, but our Trunk Show was designed to give brides sizes 18 - 24 the most extensive selection of gowns possible. During the Trunk Show, we will have a selection of fabulous gowns and accessories in sizes 18 - 24 that we don't usually have in store for trying on.
What Designers Will You Carry?
Our Curve Trunk Show will feature gowns primarily from two designers. We will have a selection of dresses from the Wtoo Curve Collection - which features soft, bohemian styles that are right on-trend. We will also carry a selection of gowns from Robert Bullock Bride - a New York-based designer who always designs with high-quality fabrics and thoughtful, classic silhouettes.
What Can I Expect at My Appointment?
During your 90-minute appointment you will meet with your stylist, and she will give you an introduction to the store and our selection of bridal gowns. Your stylist will serve as your helper throughout the entire 90 minutes, making sure your gowns are pinned correctly, accessories are added as needed, and all your questions are answered. When you find your gown and say "YES!" to the dress, we're also happy to pop champagne and toast with you and your loved ones!
What If I Fall In Love With a Gown That Isn't Part of the Trunk Show?
Your choices are definitely not limited to our Trunk Show gowns. If you see another gown you love, let your stylist know! Nearly all of our gowns can be ordered up to a size 32, no matter the size of our in-store sample.
Will My Stylist Be In the Fitting Room With Me?
We always recommend that brides allow stylists to assist them in the fitting rooms. It not only ensures that our gowns are properly zipped and clipped, but also gives our brides a personal, boutique-style experience. Helping brides in and out of gowns is a part of their job on a daily basis and they know the best way to help. With that said, if you are hesitant at all about your stylist joining you in the fitting room, let her know!
Before your appointment, look online to familiarize yourself with popular styles as well as the styles we will have in store. With that being said, keep an open mind and try on styles outside of your comfort zone - thats how so many brides find their perfect dress!
What Undergarments Should I Wear?
Wearing proper undergarments is also key. If you know that you are going to be wearing spanks or similar undergarments - bring them with you to your appointment! If you are unsure of your undergarments, we recommend a nude, strapless bra with minimal pushup.
Who Should I Bring Along With Me?
Be thoughtful about who you bring with you to your appointment. If there are friends or family members who must be present when you say "YES!" be sure to bring them with you! Many of our gown samples will be in store for this weekend only, so you won't be able to recreate that special moment if you try to come back at another time or day.
