Save the Date design ideas….I’m loving the chocolate brown and coral color combination. Also I’m a big fan of this clean, uncluttered look.

Designer Wedding Gowns – Trunk Show

March 23, 2009

We are huge fans of Judy and The Dressing Room and are happy to pass along this exciting news….

ST. PETERSBURG, FL. –, Judy Ferrara, is very excited to introduce the entire collection of Simone Carvalli Wedding Gowns, on March 27th and 28th . A company representative will be here to answer all your wedding and style questions. This exquisite dress collection can be seen in Brides, InStyle Weddings, Martha Stewart Weddings and The Knot magazines.

The Simone Carvalli Collection is known nationally for elegance, quality and fit. These gowns feature sophistication, romance, and glamour with a contemporary flair. Many with exquisite hand beaded work, accents of crystals, pearls and stones.

The new collection will be previewed all day Friday and Saturday, starting at 11 AM till 7 PM both days, appointments preferred.

The Dressing Room is focused on edited styles, exceptional service and personal attention, all in a beautiful setting. Located on Central Avenue, in St. Petersburg, Ferrara has designed her boutique so that bridal parties will experience shopping on a whole new level.

“The Dressing Room fills the void in finding the perfect, made-to-order dress,” Ferrara says. “I opened my boutique because I know women want a fashion-forward, yet classic look that can easily be worn by all brides, bridesmaids, moms and flower girls.

“In addition to great fashion, Ferrara wanted to bring a unique boutique experience to bridal parties. The comfortable, exclusive atmosphere helps brides leave their wedding planning stress behind to enjoy shopping with friends.

“Have you ever tried private shopping?” Ferrara asks. “You’ll wish everyone could offer this type of setting for shopping.”

Ferrara provides individual attention by appointment only – offering a private, intimate shopping experience. In order to streamline the decision-making process, Ferrara recommends that a bride bring no more than two or three people to her appointment.

Bridal fashion trends have moved away from each member looking identical and The Dressing Room based its philosophy on this. The customization options available at The Dressing Room are endless and allow brides to be considerate of her bridesmaids and ensure a beautiful coordinated look.

The Dressing Room has something for every woman’s age, body type and special event. Styles include dresses that are sexy and strapless, some with classic polish, others featuring fabrics that are modern satin, flirty chiffon, deep V necklines, elegant subdued fabrics, rich jewel tones, gorgeous pastels and smart neutrals. Size charts are provided for each designer and all of the dresses are made in standard sizes from 0 – 32.

The Dressing Room is located in St. Petersburg at 2430 Central Avenue. The phone number is (727) 323 – ROOM (7666). For additional information, visit
