Hayley and Ben’s DIY Berkshire Barn Wedding with a Hog Roast, Sunshine and Lots of Dancing by Masha Unwerth
Today’s gorgeous Barn wedding comes from very sunny Berkshire as we are transported back to...
Two weeks ago I had a BIG announcement on the blog. It was the launch day for Revelry’s BRAND NEW bridal wear collection. Up till now, Revelry have specialised in high fashion, versatile, budget friendly bridesmaids dresses. Well now they have launched their first wedding dress collection and we LOVE it! With 26 different designs, there really is something for everyone. What’s more, you can order these dresses to try on at home with their Sample Boxes, making choosing your gown even easier. Today I will be showing you the first half of the collection in detail, so 13 of their most stunning dresses. I will show you the other half in 2 weeks time. My personal favourites in this part of the collection are, Aphrodite, Meesha and Decklyn I would love to know what yours are.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and engagement season in full swing, we’re currently living on a love-filled cloud nine and dreaming of all. things. wedding dresses. Lace! Sequins! Tulle! We want them, and we want them ALL! And since our favorite e-commerce bridesmaid and bridal boutique, Revelry, just launched its first wedding dress line, we’ve officially fallen in love.
While its launching collection of 26 gowns is absolutely swoon-worthy, one of the aspects that makes us most excited about Revelry’s wedding dresses is its Sample Box process. Instead of the stress of a traditional boutique, Revelry gives you the chance to try on their styles in your home and on your time! When you order a Sample, you have 3 days to try it on again and again to decide if it’s for you! Extra bonus? You get to actually try on the gowns in your size and color choice to truly see how it looks. Can you say “gown shopping goals?!”
So, we’re breaking down half of the collection now and the other half at the end of the month to give you an up close and personal look with each of these happily-ever-after-worthy wedding dresses. Warning: You might have the impulse to order each of these gowns on the spot. And when you DO order a dress, you get to select not only your size and length (these dresses come in both regular and tall), but also the lining color AND skin tone color for all of the illusion details. Basically, Revelry wants to make sure your dress is totally and completely, “you!”
Helloooo, gorgeous. Introducing Revelry HQ’s favorite gown, this form-fitting number is a true headturner. Geometric and floral embroidery accent the strapless sweetheart neckline and fit-to-flare silhouette. A semi-sheer back bodice offers glimpses of skin for a hint of sultry and the bust cups and boning come together for comfort support and endless style. Get the best of both worlds with the fitted, shape-hugging upper skirt and breezy, flowing lower skirt complete with sweep train. And um, have you SEEN that lace? *swoon*
Chic meets subtly sexy in the Lyra gown, a stretch crepe dress that’s classically trendy with a long lasting “wow” factor. The rich, stretch crepe hugs the body before flowing with soft flare to the train for a flawless, figure-flattering shape. With the elongating, plunging v-neck front neckline, side illusions, and a low, open back, this showstopper is sure to turn heads and keep you comfortable all night on the dancefloor. For a sleek, modern minimalist look and the ideal dash of sultry, look no further than the Lyra.
Custom-made blue lace, bobbinet tulle, and a form-flattering A-Line fit come together to create the Luna, a designer dress like no other. The perfect gown for brides who were born to stand out with a pop of color, but still want to feel bridal on their big days. With illusion shoulders, trickling lace, a jaw-dropping low back, and long, flowing train, this blue-tiful dress has the perfect mixture of current accents and timeless attention-grabbing details.
If you’re looking for a true standout gown, the glamorous Raden is the right choice for the bride who wants it all. A gorgeous, on-trend geometric sequin pattern, low, strappy back, and v-neckline with light plunge come together for a fit-to-flare gown that is jaw-dropping, dramatic, and fiercely fun. The semi-sheer side-front peek-a-boo and back offer glimpses of skin and the skirt’s silhouette hugs the body and gives a bombshell shape before making a dramatic flared train that’s truly the stuff of Pinterest dreams.
Floral corded lace flows throughout this fit-to-flare gown to create an elegant and whimsical wedding dress fit for royalty. With beautiful scallop edges accenting the off-shoulder neckline, sleeve edge, and skirt hem and boning in the bodice for structure, the swoon-worthy Southampton checks off all of the boxes. The sheer lace neckline, back bodice, and sleeves offer glimpses of skin, and fabric-covered buttons add a special touch from back the neckline all the way to the edge of the train for the perfect combination of modern sophistication and classic glam.
Vine and floral embroidery motifs accent this modern romantic fit-to-flare masterpiece. The unique lace cascades from the bodice into the skirt over layers of bobbinet tulle. With a boned, structured bodice, light fit on the hips, and skirt godets that flow softly from mid-skirt to hem ending in a trance-inducing train, the Mona is a modern bride’s perfect princess dress meticulously made for the night she’ll always remember.
Guipure lace accents the Sedona’s deep v-neck bodice and cut out sides (with peek-a-boo illusion at the front and sides for security and fit) create a figure-flattering gown that’s on-trend down to the very last stitch. The keyhole detail and sheer back ensure attention from every angle, and crepe skirt creates a flowy, fluid fit. The clean, sleek style hugs the body shape through the hips and upper legs before flowing naturally to the floor, with a center back godet creating a dramatic back train straight out of the storybooks.
Whimsical romance and flattering finishes come together to create the Aphrodite, one of the most playful gowns of Revelry’s collection. Detachable, draped sleeves, luscious, hand-placed lace that trickles down the length of the gorgeous gown, a flattering deep v-neckline, and bold 3D butterfly and fun flower appliques come together to create a one-of-a-kind look. This trendy and fashion-forward sheath gown will make you feel butterflies in your tummy and fall in love at first sight!
Talk about total glam goals, the Meesha was a passion project from Revelry’s founder, Michelle, and the reason we’re now 1000% dreaming of shimmery rose gold wedding dresses. A fitted bodice, flowing train, and modernizing illusion front yoke and back come together to create one of the most jaw-dropping dresses around. With with wispy feather accents, a flattering fit-to-flare silhouette, and sparkles that just don’t stop, this is the gown that truly has it all. A special bonus? This style is also offered in white and we can’t decide which version we love more!
Hand-placed lace appliqués, layers of bobbinet tulle, and a sweeping, scalloped-edge train make for the Aurora, one of the most romantic gowns we have EVER seen. Luscious lace flows from the sheer cap sleeves into the boned bodice and down the train and the low, open back. The illusion bateau front neckline offers modern, barely-there coverage and with 5 different skin tone options to choose from, you’ll be able to create a totally seamless, totally spectacular, and totally “you” look for your most romantic day.

With the ideal mixture of fairytale beauty and modern whimsy, the Ravina is truly a bridal gown for the ages.
