Trunk Shows at Lovely Bride NYC | junebugweddings.com


Lea Ann Belter Trunk Show at Lovely Bride LA

Every month, when the sweet ladies at Lovely Bride send me the pretty photos for their trunk shows, it just kills me that I’m in Seattle instead of LA or New York. And that I don’t need a wedding dress. And that I don’t work at their gorgeous boutique where I would try on dresses during my lunch hour. Because seriously! They carry the most romantic, lacy, pretty dresses. So if YOU are in LA, get yourself down to their Lea Ann Belter trunk show this month, and live vicariously for me a little!

October 19-28
