@lena_k_29:  They will pressure you to purchase but there is no reason you have to. I think with the deposit (which is rare around here) for the appointment you might lose it if you don’t purchase versus it being applied to a dress or something but it doesn’t sound like that is an issue for you.

Go and try on the dresses and see what you love. You are not under any obligation.

I went to a trunk show a few months ago to try on a dress that I thought might be “the one.” Turned out it was awful on me! You’re definitely not obligated to buy. Be prepared for them to lay on the charm and pressure though lol

I actually tried on dresses during a trunk show without intention to buy since my wedding is still quite a ways off. But I knew I wanted to wear that designer. Sometimes during trunk shows they offer some type of deal as well. If I ended up purchasing a dress that weekend of the show I would receive a gift certificate for 10% of the price of the dress to use at the bridal shop. Luckily I didnt have a pushy consultant and went back a couple days later to buy it and got my gift certificate.
