What bride doesn’t want to own a gorgeous designer gown without falling over from sticker shock? Just because it’s a designer on the tag does not always mean you have to shell over a small fortune to look like a million bucks on your Big Day.

Bridal Revente has designer looks at affordable prices for the brides of New Orleans. Located Uptown on Magazine Street, Bridal Revente has rows of beautiful, previously loved or discontinued and closeout gowns. The family-owned local business, operated by mother-daughter team Elizabeth Miller and Katie Ward, began when Ward, after visiting countless bridal markets, realized nothing was being done with the discontinued and closeout gowns at the end of a particular season. An idea sparked to gather up the gowns and offer them to the brides seeking affordably-priced designer gowns.

Designer of the Week: Say Yes to the Dress for Less

Why let a beautiful gown go to waste when it could complete another bride’s dream wedding? And if you already have your gown, but don’t want to break the bank when it comes to shoes and accessories, Bridal Revente has those options as well. It can get tricky because each gown is the only gown and is sold as-is off the rack. The store has accounted for this, however, and provides the alteration services of Kathleen Cooper of Southern Simplicity. Cooper is available to guidance and alterations from minor imperfections to complex restyling.

The shop is designed to serve one bride at a time, so appointments are recommended. The store’s hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 504-592-7507 or email (info@bridalrevente.com) for appointments and information.
