It’s no secret that everyone at Revelry HQ is head over heels for all. things. weddings. Considering we look at gorgeous gowns every single day (and play dress up even more than we’d care to admit), anything involving friendship, lace, and love is pretty much our lifeblood. And while we all have our favorite components (our founder, Michelle, loves designing and celebrating with her besties and our Social Media Coordinator, Rachel, loves sharing her journey from engagement to marriage with the community), our Marketing Manager, LauraLee, is truly the queen of all things events, entertaining, and trends. So, what started as a casual Monday night dinner with friends has quickly turned into the Pinterest-worthy night of our dreams.
Love it or hate it, like all good reality TV, The Bachelor brings people together. Ever since LauraLee's big sister from her sorority moved to Austin, they made it their weekly mission to get together, share a meal (and a glass or two of wine), and bond. As time went on and more and more pals moved to the area, their weekly watch parties evolved as well. It wasn't until the final episode of last season, however, they decided to really kick things up a notch. They donned Revelry sequin gowns (the Bachelorette, Becca's, most common outfit), tossed rose petals everywhere, and had a night fit for a first impression rose. Naturally, with the next finale coming to a head, the group decided to up the game even more for the end of Colton's famous season.
With the recent launch of Revelry’s inclusive bridal line, the group decided that the only way to raise the bar was to trade their sequin gowns for wedding dresses. So, in honor of Colton shaking things up and changing the Bachelor game, they ate pasta, they played around in wedding dresses, and they felt like brides while watching The Bachelor get his girl.
