Weekend Ahead: March 27-29

Tara Keely
This Tara Keely gown is gorgeous, just gorgeous. See more like this at the trunk show at Hayden Olivia this week.

The weather this weekend is supposed to be fabulous! But before you grab your wedding planning notebook, all your bridal mags (don’t forget your Charlotte Wedding!), and a comfy picnic blanket and head over to Freedom Park to work on some of your wedding plans in the sun, be sure to check out these two trunk shows first:

Chic, modern and fabulous gowns

Besides the Ritz-Carlton, Hayden Olivia Bridal boutique might be our favorite uptown spot—we’re always coming up with excuses to stop by to see their gorgeous bridal gowns and accessories. The boutique will continue to host the Tara Keely trunk show through Friday at the boutique on Tryon located above Emerson Joseph. Keely’s gowns are full of interesting, fresh details like beaded belts (we love the candlelight shade), florals, organza overlays, and pockets (what bride doesn’t love pockets?). Appointments are limited and book quickly. 221 S. Tryon St., #200, 704-333-0377, haydenolivia.com

Glamour without guilt

Chances are there’s a style for every bride in the Watters Brides collection—and in beautiful budget-friendly prices. J. Majors has quite the selection on hand this weekend for the trunk show at its Dilworth Boutique. (Psst, the Inez gown might be our hands-down favorite with all of that tulle!) Appointments recommended. 2400 Park Rd., 704-372-0082, jmajors.com
