Weekend Ahead: Feb. 26 – 28

Blue by Enzoani
The Caracas style dress from the Blue by Enzoani bridal collection.

Shop for the perfect gown until you drop this weekend with bridal fashion trunks shows from Uptown to Dilworth to Gastonia. A stop in South Park will get your gents suited up in style.

Details, details, details

For brides looking for styles with details like beaded straps and embellishments of florals, embroidered yoke necklaces and lush fabrics of garza and taffeta — either of the Reverie and Vineyard Collections by Melissa Sweet are a definite must see. (I love the Cairo style as a shorter reception dress option!) Hayden Olivia is hosting a trunk show for both collections at the uptown boutique Friday and Saturday. By appointment only. 221 S. Tryon Street, Suite 200, (704) 333-0377, haydenolivia.com

Gorgeous, gorgeous gowns

Brides looking for dramatic and show-stopping gowns should not miss the chance to see the entire Romona Keveza bridal collection this weekend at J. Major’s Bridal boutique in Dilworth. Those looking to channel their inner-old Hollywood Audrey Hepburn style will like many of the styles available in the Legends by Romona Keveza line. Both collections will be available for viewing and ordering Friday and Saturday. By appointment only. 2400 Park Rd., (704) 372-0082, jmajors.com

Looking for lots of options?

The 2010 collection from Blue by Enzoani has forty (yep, forty) dress styles to choose from and Poffie GIrls in Gastonia is the place to see them. So many gown styles — for the formal, the fun, the flirty and the far-away destination brides — we’re certain you’ll find one or two that you fancy. Appointment recommended but not required. 512 South New Hope Rd., Gastonia, (704) 866-0198, poffiegirls.com

Let’s hear it for the boys

Your groom (and all of his men!) can visit the Men’s Made-to-Measure event this weekend at Neiman Marcus to be custom-fit for everything from dress shirts, jackets, pants or the full suit. A made-to-measure purchase this weekend gets the guys an extra 15 percent off and a Neiman Marcus travel garment bag. South Park Mall, 4400 Sharon Rd., (704) 442-7900, neimanmarcus.com
