How did it all start?!
Always going slightly against the grain, Michelle DeLoach created Revelry in 2009 during her senior year at Texas State University. Being involved in Greek life and supporting football games, Michelle didn’t understand why the only outfitting option for group organizations & sporting teams were t-shirts. Revelry became a huge success in the Greek market by breaking tradition and becoming the go-to spot for sorority chapters to outfit their members for recruitment. Sororities had never before been offered fun, fashion forward custom apparel for their organization. To make the process easier, she allowed sororities to try on styles before ordering in bulk so their chapter could coordinate seamlessly with their sisters. As many Revelry customers graduated and got engaged, they requested to order the sorority dresses as an affordable option for bridesmaids dresses.
As Michelle's customers transitioned to the next phase of life, so did she, and realized another market in need of some help. With buying a $300 dress the first time she was a bridesmaid in her early 20's, she know something was not right. Bridesmaids needed trendy dresses they would look forward to wearing that cost less. It became her goal to bring the same business model of her sorority outfitting company to the bridesmaid market. Three following key aspects would be ground breaking for bridesmaid dress shopping; direct to customer, e-commerce and Sample Box program!
Creation of The Bridesmaid Collection
Everything worth while is worth the wait and Revelry's Bridesmaid Collection is the epitome of that. Carefully curating the right collection, sourcing the perfect fabrics and making strategic partnerships takes time. After a year of pre-production and perfecting the collection, the Revelry Bridesmaid website launched in summer 2016.
With immediate attention in the bridesmaid market weeks after the launch, many happy brides and bridesmaids are rejoicing in what Revelry has to offer.
Revelry will continue to stay true to the core value of cherishing the opportunity to dress women.
"I was answering the phones when one of our first customers called crying, she had just received her Sample Box from us in the mail. She was elated because she had found a high quality tulle skirt that was AFFORDABLE for her bridesmaids. She had been dreaming of her perfect wedding pictures and could not find an affordable bridesmaid skirt option. She skeptically ordered a Sample Box and when it arrived she surprised to say the least. I will always remember that phone call. It was a marker in time for me that the years of work were worth it and that soon, many other Revelry customers would be just as happy as she was." - Michelle DeLoach
