You know that saying “you can shorten it and wear it again” when talking about bridesmaid dresses? Does anyone ever actually do that? It was a running joke in that movie 27 Dresses because her dresses were all so wild and horrible, but sometimes even beautiful bridesmaid dresses just don’t look like you could wear them again. I’ve been a bridesmaid twice, and while I loved the dresses for the weddings, they looked absolutely gorgeous in photos, I haven’t worn either again, and it also would cost a lot of money to get them tailored.
That’s not the case with Shop Revelry. These dresses come in so many styles that easily look like they were made to be for formals, galas, or fancy parties as well as weddings. I mean, this sequin dress is a contender for my NYE dress (depending on whether or not I find a fabulous party to go to). They also offer a fun selection of separates that are truly wear-again pieces. Another wonderful thing I love about this store is that they cut out the middle man (i.e. retailers) so the dresses are incredibly affordable for their high quality. Tulle and all-over sequins can get pricy, but this dress only goes for $175 which is crazy!! You seriously can’t find another store with pricing like that for high quality, beautifully made, and uniquely styled dresses. I have been recommending Revelry to all my friends who are engaged because no one wants to be that bride who tells her gals they need to pay for a $300 dress. One more perk, they offer sample boxes for $30 so you can see for yourself how beautiful the gowns are in person before you commit to buying.
They are also passionate about dressing women of all shapes, offering size 0-32 all at the same price. That may seem like a given, but it’s rare to find stores that won’t up-charge the plus sizes. It’s a small but wonderful reflection of the store owner, Michelle, who is just as sweet as can be! I had the pleasure of meeting her over coffee and was so excited to hear about all the amazing aspects of her store that set Revelry apart from any other bridesmaid dress shops.
So, whether you’re looking for a sequin dress to wear to your fabulous NYE party, or you’re a bride-to-be searching for the perfect dresses to set your wedding apart from any others, you have to give Revelry a try. You won’t be disappointed, I swear!!
Also, thanks again to the Westin Austin Downtown for letting us use their gorgeous rooftop for this shoot. They are actually having a NYE party up there this year, so if you’re in Austin you should look it up!
I also apologize for any errors on this post, lol. My downstairs neighbors are BLARING music and I can barely think straight.
