Join us for a BRIDAL REVIVAL!
At Glitter & Grit, we’re always saying that your wedding isn’t “all about The Dress” – and it's not. But… why not have a night that IS?
Glitter & Grit’s Bridal Revival is the chance for YOU to wear YOUr wedding dress again, and really enjoy it this time. No pre-ceremony jitters, no shaking hands and kissing babies; just a fun night out with girlfriends, looking fabulous and having a blast!
after it’s all over, there's an opportunity to do some good. we will be accepting WEDDING AND BRIDESMAID dress donations for Brides for a Cause and Project prom, and any proceeds derived from the event will be donated to the children's hospital of pittsburgh.
here's the skinny:
this first-time event takes place on Friday, april 8, 2016 from 7:00-10:00 p.m. at the stunning hotel monaco in downtown pittsburgh.
You are invited to join in the fun by rocking your wedding, bridesmaid, or other formal dress! Tickets to the bridal revival include small bites, signature cocktails, hair and makeup touch-ups, party stations, contests, access to the revival lounge, AND (OF COURSE) DANCING!
Hotel Monaco will be offering discounted room rates for attendees of bridal revival, should you want to go all-out and stay the night. Make your reservation through this link or reference the "bridal Revival Room Block when you call 855-338-3837.
Parking: Valet at the hotel is available; we also suggest Mellon Square garage; diagonally across william penn place / sixth avenue from the hotel. parking there is $5 after 4 p.m.
**Please note: we can only accept wedding dress donations that are 2010 or newer, per brides for a cause's guidelines.
I definitely want to attend, but I'm not so sure about traipsing through the city in my wedding dress!
we feel you, girl. There will be a large room available at the hotel to change into your dress, as well as a coat/bag check to stash your street clothes. there will also be professionals on hand to touch up your hair and makeup!
can i donate the closet full of bridesmaid dresses that i've accumulated?
Absolutely! We will be accepting dress donations all night, so if you'd like to donate more than the dress you're wearing, you can drop them off when you arrive.
is this for girls only?
Of course not. guys get to play dress-up, too! Surely, your husband / boyfriend / brother / cousin / bff has a nice suit or tux in his closet. or if he's really adventurous, talk him into rocking one of your dresses! everyone is welcome.
I'd like to donate my wedding dress, but i can't attend the party. Is there a way I can still contribute?
Yes. We will be accepting wedding dress donations at glitter & grit (5300 butler street in Lawrenceville) Monday - thursday, the weeks before and after the event. please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a drop-off time.
i'd love to attend, and wear my wedding dress again - but it doesn't fit anymore! What can i do?
There are lots of tricks to tim gunn that thing! Consider layering over/under a camisole or t-shirt, using clips and/or safety pins, adding a wide obi belt, or just completely restyling your dress (Think Carrie Bradshaw). To entice your creativity, there will be a contest at the bridal revival for best restyled wedding dress!
I'd like to support children's hospital of pittsburgh, but I can't attend this event. is there another way to make a donation?
Yes! You can make an online donation to children's hospital of pittsburgh here.
