Calling all Mothers! So we know that all eyes are on the bride during her wedding day – as they should be! But who are the next most important ladies of the day behind the Beautiful Bride?! That’s right, the MOMS! And we at StarDust have not forgotten about you! You want to look your best on your son or daughter’s special day, and we have so many lovely dresses and gowns for you to choose from. So we are especially pleased to announce that we are hosting a trunk show this weekend at our West Plano Salon for JSS Knits, known for their simple yet elegant Special Occasion dresses, just for the mothers.
The best thing about trunk shows is the opportunity to see and shop the latest wedding gown designs, straight off the runway. The down side to this is that the gowns are often the actual gowns worn on the runway by models, so the samples are generally small – a size 6 or 8.
By the way, you might be wondering how these events came to be called “trunk shows.” The name comes from how the gowns used to be transported from salon to salon – in trunks!

Check out one of our beautiful, imaginative weddings that is profiled in the Fall 2010 issue of D Weddings! Kari Jo and Dillon Gussis celebrated their wedding day in elegant, richly colored style at the Ritz-Carlton. After a gorgeous ceremony and opulent formal reception bathed in a potpourri of purples, the couple continued the festivities with a costume change and a fun and funky after-party. After working up an appetite dancing, guests were treated to a late-night snack of milkshakes and sliders. Take a look at the fun groom’s cake in honor of tennis pro Dillon! We had so much fun working with this lovely couple on their wonderful event. Thanks Kari Jo and Dillon for trusting us with your special day, and thanks to D Weddings for taking notice of this stunning wedding!
