I love July for bridal couture. There typically aren't quite as many trunk shows as there are in other seasons (although there are still plenty), but check out all the sample sales! Five in July alone, plus one more in August. Wow!
Also pay particular attention to the Other Events section this month. Soliloquy Bridal Couture in Herndon, Virginia, is repeating their Wild Wedding Wednesdays this summer, with a different promotion each week. Hover over the Soliloquy picture for each of those Wednesdays to see what's going on in the salon that week.
Remember that most of these events are by appointment only, so be sure to call ahead for your reservation.
Have a very happy and safe Independence Day, and as always, happy shopping! May you meet the dress of your dreams!
