When it comes to planning a wedding, we think there’s more than just one day to party. It’s no secret that we’re obsessed with all things tulle, lace, and chiffon, and that we’ve made it our mission to help brides and bridesmaids from around the world feel beautiful on the most special of days.
But being in a wedding is about more than just wearing a beautiful dress and posing for picture-perfect photos. It’s about the friendships you’ve made, the love you have, and celebrating every milestone from “yes” to “I do” and beyond! That’s why we created the Try-On Party — a way for brides and babes to party while finding their perfect wedding day looks and bond before the big day.
So, when we found out Austin-based blogger and founder of Leopard Martini, Adriana Lucia, started planning her big day, we knew we just had spoil the bride-to-be! We rented out the cutest venue, hired one of our fave photographers, Madeline Harper, and invited the bride’s best babes for a day of dress-up, desserts, and plenty of bubbly to go around!
“Revelry sets the standard when it comes to trying on wedding dresses. This Austin based brand is shaking things up with the way they throw Try-On Parties for brides. A few weeks ago, they threw the most incredible, fun, and completely authentic bridal Try-On Party for me. From the location, food, decor — it was catered solely to my personal style and matched me so perfectly. I loved absolutely every minute of it!” -Adriana Lucia, Bride and Founder of Leopard Martini
“A Try-On Party differs from a wedding day because you don't have to stick with just one style! It's a way to have all the different aspects of your personality captured — you can go from a sleek modern gown to a lacy bohemian number to a twirly princess gown. You don't have to make a final decision but you still get to feel like a bride from start to finish.” -Madeline Harper, Photographer
“A Try-On Party is honestly a photographer’s dream. You get so many different looks from both the bride and bridesmaids that you'll have content for months to come. Plus, bridesmaids are able to fully share what they think of dresses! It's a chance to find a dress that's flattering, comfortable, and makes them feel like a million bucks!” -Madeline Harper, Photographer
“We toasted, twirled, and awed at our gorgeous bride-to-be while she tried on beautiful dress after beautiful dress. The bridal party had an opportunity to try on some bridesmaids dresses and I loved the styles and that they didn’t look traditional. I’m excited to see how everything comes together!” -Ivy Veloz Reyna
“I gathered with friends at a beautiful spot in Austin, enjoyed sips and bites, and had so much fun celebrating being a bride-to-be. All while trying on beautiful dresses from Revelry with my best gals! Because who doesn’t love playing dress-up?!” -Adriana Lucia

“I’ve been working with both Adriana and Revelry for over a year. I was drawn to them by their kindness and joy — both brands are fully transparent in who they are. When Adriana became engaged I was working [in secrecy] on shooting Revelry's soon-to-launch bridal line. I knew they did bridesmaid Try-On Parties and were thinking of doing a bridal + bridesmaid Try-On Party combo.” -Madeline Harper, Photographer
“The group of women behind the scenes at Revelry are every bit as stunning as the dresses they promote. So to have this unique circumstance where I can support them, give them images to hold onto, and party with my friend before she marries her love? Well, it was a dream day!” -Madeline Harper, Photographer
“Adriana is a blogger that I'm truly proud to work with. Her heart is for the success of others and the same could be said of Revelry. I got them in touch with a not-so-subtle group text that ended up leading to a full blown celebration! I couldn't think of a better partnership or more special day to photograph.” -Madeline Harper, Photographer
“Going to this Try-On Party was really special to me. It felt like celebrating old friends — not just Adriana on her wedding season, but Revelry and Michelle, the owner, for all of their hard work. I've seen this company skyrocket in growth this past year. All the while, they have stayed humble, dedicated, and team players.” -Madeline Harper, Photographer

“I absolutely loved our Try-On Party with Revelry! There can be a lot of nerves when trying to find the perfect dress, and this event reminded us to live in the moment and have fun. That’s exactly what we did!” -Ivy Veloz Reyna
“Always have a great playlist on and you can never go wrong with something poured in the wine glasses! When it all comes down to it, a Try-On Party and a wedding are about making beautiful memories with your very best people.” -Madeline Harper, Photographer
