How to Find the Perfect Bridesmaid Dresses

I shopped for months trying to find the perfect bridesmaid dresses. I went to stores, I searched online, I flipped through magazines, and just didn’t love anything.

Everything I found in-store was totally unflattering and/or extremely expensive. My problem with online shopping is that clothes rarely look the same in person as they do online. The dresses I found in magazines were mostly generic bridesmaid dresses that none of my girls would’ve wanted to purchase (rightfully so). Our wedding is black-tie so I also was trying to find the right dresses for our more formal dress code.

My bridesmaids are all beautiful and I want them to feel great at my wedding. My personal goal was to find beautiful dresses that were under $200. I think it’s important to be totally transparent about costs with your ladies from the beginning. Between bridal showers, bachelorette parties, the wedding day, and more, being a bridesmaid can be expensive.

I was scrolling through Instagram one day and I saw these gorgeous dresses from a company called Revelry. I immediately went to their website to learn more and see if they were carried in-store near me. Turns out, it’s better than that.

Revelry has a Sample Box program where they will send you dresses to try at home! This made it easy for me to see them in person and for a couple of my bridesmaids to try them on before ordering their dress. Included in the box is a sizing sheet, measuring tape, the dresses, and swatches of all the different materials Revelry offers! I ordered three different styles: The Kennedy, Rosalie, and Brooklyn. I love the flowy look of both chiffon and tulle so I knew I would like all of these dresses.

As soon as my box arrived, I drove over to my MOH’s house to have her try them on. Each of the dresses were so well-made and stunning on. After texting a few photos back and forth with my wedding planner and girls, we had chosen my bridesmaid dresses. It was that easy!

Another bonus: ALL of Revelry’s dresses are $185 or less! I still can’t believe how high the quality is for the price. And the color/ fabric selection they carry is better than what I could find in-store anywhere. As far as the dresses in person vs. online, they were even better than I expected. Also, I waited longer than most brides do to choose my bridesmaids dresses and Revelry’s production time is only 10 weeks! One more thing I loved is that there is no extra charge to order extra length. A couple of my girlfriends are fairly tall and not having to pay extra for the additional length was really nice.

Basically, brides – you NEED this! Revelry made choosing bridesmaids dresses easy, stress-free, and fun!
