Finally The Bride: Sarah's Pre-Wedding Celebration Shows Why Every Bride Needs A Try-On Party

Finally The Bride: Sarah's Pre-Wedding Celebration Shows Why Every Bride Needs A Try-On Party

When we had the idea for the #FinallyTheBride series well over a year ago, we had no idea just how big our weekly wedding planning videos would get! At the time our Social Media Manager, Rachel Varina, was engaged and chatted with our fans every Sunday as she planned her Halloween-themed wedding. After getting married, it quickly became clear that the Revelry community missed having a wedding to help plan and a bride to bounce ideas off of. So, we searched far and wide and found 5 new brides from around the country to share their journeys with our community!

One of our favorite parts about hosting this series? Is spoiling babes from around the country. And with it comes one of our favorite events around: The Try-On Party! New to the idea of a Try-On Party? It’s easy! With our Sample Box system, both brides and babes can try on dresses at home and their sizes, totally stress-free! We bring the boutique to you so you can find your favorite looks without pushy sales folks, stuffy fitting rooms, and total guesswork on what will *actually* fit (because when you’re ordering a formal gown, we think you should know EXACTLY what you’re getting before you get it)! Where does the party portion come in? Who doesn’t love the chance to get their bridal party together, celebrate friendship, and have fun along the way?

Basically, it’s the chance to get your gals together, find your perfect wedding day looks, and bond before the big day festivities begin. So, we sent all of our #FinallyTheBrides their favorite bridal and bridesmaid styles and enjoyed the chance to celebrate their fierce friendships and love-filled adventures!

Our first bride-to-be getting married, Sarah, recently hosted her Try-On Party full of laughter, carbs, and all things celebratory moments. As her Labor Day wedding quickly approaches, we loved the chance to spoil her girls, get her besties together, and help her bridesmaids find their perfect wedding day looks. From sharing her grandparents’ anniversary to watching her Garden Party wedding come together, we’re so excited to be a part of her “I dos” and can’t wait to celebrate her more as the big day gets closer and closer!

“The best part about being one of the Finally the Brides is adding an extra layer of fun to the planning process! The Revelry community is so supportive and inspiring! This experience has really let me live in the present moment of planning and take this time to cherish the journey and not just rush to the finish line of the big day.”Sarah, Bride

“My Try-On Party was hosted at my brother & sister-in-laws house in Altoona, PA. My sister-in-law, Holly, is one of my bridesmaids. Altoona is where a majority of my bridesmaids grew up as well, which made it extra fun to get my hometown friends together!”

“The theme was brunch and bubbly —- just typical girl fun with breakfast foods and mimosas! 4/7 of my bridesmaids were able to attend. The other 3 live all over the place, but they were there in spirit.”

“Together, my bridesmaids and I found a date that was going to work best for the majority of girls. Lots of group chats and schedules were taken into consideration, and then we realized that Easter would be perfect since a majority of us would be back in Altoona with our families to celebrate the holiday.”

“The girls who could not attend had the option of ordering a sample box themselves. One of my girls did and absolutely loved it! She’s about 6ft tall, so she definitely wanted to try on some dresses to test the length and find the perfect fit.”

“Picking my styles consisted of each bridesmaid sending me their top 3 choices. Luckily, there was a lot of overlap between the girls, so there were at least 2 girls who liked the same dress. That is how I narrowed it down! We chose 4 total different styles for the big day. 2 girls in the Lily, 2 girls in the Abigail, 2 girls in the Kaia, and my MOH stands out wearing the Kennedy convertible.”

“Everyone should have a Try-On Party for so. many. reasons. Trying on the dresses not only allowed all my bridesmaids to feel comfortable and confident in their wedding day attire, but it also allowed me to see my vision of mix match dresses come to life! With all the styles in the correct sizes and the color swatches (and measuring tape included in the box), it eased any anxiety I had about my cohesive look! This was a REALLY big deal for me!”

“In addition to seeing the gorgeous looks, it also served as a mixer for all my bridesmaids! Some of us remain in consistent contact and some not so much, so it was great to have everyone in one room all together. Plus since everyone’s schedules are so crazy, we lumped in shower planning with the Try-On-Party too!”

“My favorite part of the party was seeing my vision come to life! I’ve always wanted mix match colors AND styles so it was a jaw dropping moment when I got to see it all fuse together. I truly can’t wait until the wedding to see everything side by side on my wedding day!”

“My experience with Revelry and the entire sample box system was nothing short of exceptional. Ordering a box is SO simple, and Revelry’s customer service and stylist are extremely knowledgeable about the products and helpful when it comes to colors and styles, different body types, etc.”

“The stylists truly make you a number one priority and explain the entire process in so much detail. You don’t even have to print a shipping label, it’s all done for you! It’s seriously simple and so effective!”

“I ended up picking the styles based on my girls! I want them to be happy and order a dress that hopefully they can wear again! I picked the colors because Steffan and I are obsessed with blues and greens.”

“Going with blue and green chiffon was a fun and flirty choice, but also romantic and sophisticated. Plus, they look AMAZING with tons of greenery — very whimsical but also a tad different.”
