When our Marketing Manager, LauraLee’s, bestie got engaged last year, we knew we needed to pull out all of the stops to make this VIP feel extra special. As soon as the date was set and the save the dates were sent, we invited bride, Michelle and her besties to a Revelry Try-On Party to help them find their perfect looks.
It turns out, Michelle didn’t just say “yes” to her bridesbabes’ perfect styles and hues — she found her dream gown as well! With the line not even officially launched yet, we couldn’t ignore that the Decklyn Bridal Gown was truly HER dress. So, with a little magic and a whole lot of happiness, we were able to outfit our bride in her dream dress for our first EVER full Revelry wedding!
“Fort Worth is known as "Cow Town," but I’m more bashfully boho than country. I took on the challenge of creating a union of the two in a truly unique outdoor ceremony filled with dark organic blooms, natural scenery, and the cutest hints of Texas natural wood. It couldn’t have been more perfect or more 'us.'"—Michelle, Bride
“It was the most perfect day, starting off with all my best friends just getting ready and laughing together. Getting to see everyone in their Revelry bridesmaid dresses and seeing how beautiful they looked and then getting to put on my wedding dress... it was just even more perfect than I imagined!”

"Wedding dress shopping was STRESSFUL at first. We had a shorter engagement and checking everything off the list with limited time means a LOT of decisions! My salon bridal dress shopping experience seemed so rushed, and I felt pretty lost until I was able to get a sneak peek at the new gowns Revelry was about to launch.”
“My wedding was in February, so I got to actually try on several of the Revelry bridal gowns before they were released to the public! Michelle, Revelry's founder, was so sweet and even helped give me feedback and styling advice! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything!”
“The Try-On Party was one of the most fun parts of my entire wedding planning experience! My Mom and I ended up spending the night at the beautiful Hotelette property in Dallas with my BFF, LauraLee, who happens to work for Revelry and planned the perfect party for me!”
“I was then able to spend more time at home with my top three sample styles and get feedback from both my parents. Being able to try on the bridal samples several times helped me make a confident decision and it was so special to be able to share it with my dad, who wasn't able to be a part of the other bridal gown shopping experiences!”
"I was trying to choose between burgundy and neutrals for bridesmaid hues. We ended up settling on the Latte color at my Try-On Party when we were able to view all the swatches and get a feel for the style of dresses my bridesmaids were drawn to. The Latte just stood out as a clear winner once I saw my bridal party twirling, oohing, and awing over the Latte-colored samples."
"Working for Revelry, I get so excited to see our dresses in the wild! Nothing makes me happier than getting to see how our brides’ big days turn out and seeing the joy on their faces! Getting to be in my BFF's wedding (which also happens to be our FIRST Revelry bride) was better than I could have imagined. I got to host the Try-On Party and be involved with so many aspects I normally wouldn't have gotten to be a part of.”—LauraLee Baird, Revelry Marketing Manager
“The dress was a match made in heaven and getting to try on multiple beautiful dresses was so fun. After chatting with the founder, Michelle, she helped me find my perfect style (and even suggested asking my tailor to add straps to make me feel even more comfortable when I hit the dance floor)!”
“Ty and I had a moment where we held hands around a door before the wedding, but we didn’t see each other, and it just increased the anticipation of walking down the aisle. Finally getting to walk down the aisle was just the best moment of. my. life.”
“I cried more than once seeing her look so beautiful on this special day and the joy that radiated out of her and Ty. It was truly magical to get to see their love in action, and surreal to be standing up next to her on such a monumental moment dressed in Revelry. She is one of the most generous, kind, and forgiving people on the planet and being able to spoil and celebrate her through Revelry was so special. Plus, it was pretty great to be the one twirling in that Revelry bridesmaid dress this time!"—LauraLee Baird, Revelry Marketing Manager
“I couldn’t take my eyes off of her. Nothing else in the world mattered once she walked through those doors. Thinking about everything we’d been through and everything to come was overwhelming. Marrying Michelle was the easiest decision I’ve ever made, and seeing her walk down the aisle was the icing on the cake to the start of us making married memories together.” —Ty, Groom
“I had always dreamed of walking down the aisle with my dad, my hero, on my wedding day. Being with my dad for those few moments and him just saying how excited he was for me and Ty was so touching. We had so much fun walking down the aisle — there was just so much joy! I was so excited to get to Ty that my dad had to help me walk slower! I’ve never smiled so much in my life.”
“I’ve never felt so much joy getting to walk down the aisle with my dad and then seeing Ty waiting for me. It was perfect, and I’ll never forget how special of a moment it was.”
"Both of us have large families, so being able to have them all involved was very important. We made everyone feel as included and special on that day as they are in our lives everyday!"
