So i was thinking of driving 3 1/2 hrs to Vegas for a Maggie Sottero trunk show. My question is….
How much do you normally get off the dress if you order it then? How much do you have to put down as well?
My dress is normally 1400… Angelina

am wondering the same thing myself!
debating whether to call a store that has a trunk show of the designer i want and just pay for shipping instead.. thay may still be a better deal than paying full price.

You can get about 15 or 20% off. You should call the dress store to verify because I have heard of different % off being given for different designers.
I had to put half down when I ordered my dress.

I bought my dress from a Justin Alexander trunk show. I got 20% off and free shipping. I think that the particular shop that I ordered my dress from made me put down half (my mom took care of it, so I am not 100% sure on this). That being said, every designer trunk show and dress shop will be different. I would call ahead.

I only got 10% off for the Lazaro trunk show, plus customizations (e.g. hollow-to-hem) were comped. I think it depends on the store rather that the designer. You’ll probably want to call ahead as I wouldn’t drive to Vegas for a $140 discount – your gas price will probably be half that.

I went to a Maggie Sottero trunk show a few weeks ago in Maryland. I’m pretty sure they only gave 10% off at my store… you should call the vegas store, the sale price isn’t a secret or anything. I personally was really disappointed when I went because all the dresses were a size 6… they were mixed in with the larger sizes that the store already carried, but I had already been there once and tried those on, so I accomplished nothing going the second time. Call the store, find out what the sale discount is going to be and they should have a list of the dresses they are going to have… if you haven’t already tried it on, make sure they will have angelina….. if you already are sure you want it, I guess it could be worth the drive. Then do you have to drive there again to pick it up when it comes in? That kind of sucks. Eh.. I don’t know. Good luck.

I bought my dress from a Lazaro trunk show, as well, and I saved 12 1/2 % plus personalizations were comped (ie split dress sizes, etc) and he drew a sketch of my gown. I think it probably does depend on the salon and the designer how much you will save, so if you’re going for that reason, I don’t think it’s worth it when you’re driving over 3 hrs.
What is worth it is seeing all the dresses by the designer and possibly getting to meet her. It’s really fun so I would go for the experience, not to save money.

I got my Mori Lee for 30% off at a trunk show. Saved like $400!!

Call before hand just to make sure. Some do 10%, others do up to 20%. Also, they may provide a discount for the gown lengths. Even if you aren’t petite, see if the petite cut will be long enough for you. It’s typically 3 or 5 inches off the length of the dress and depending on your heel height, it might save you the money of a hem.

I would definitely call about the discount before I go. I got 20% off my Aire Barcelona dress because of the trunk show.

You have to call the store. I went to a Maggie Sottero trunk show and they only offered 10% off. Also, be sure to ask if they’ll have your dress. I called and asked if they’d have all the new dresses at the trunk show; they said they would. But when I went, I had pictures of about 25 Maggie dresses that I liked and they literally only had 3 of those! I’m sure it really depends on the designer and the store itself. Good luck!
