Would You Rent Your Wedding Dress?
By 0 Comments|
I was recently put on to a website called Rent The Runway where you can rent high-end dresses for a special event at a fraction of the retail price. I thought it was a great idea since in the past I have spent hundreds of dollars on dresses that I end up wearing only one time. I then started to think. With at least two friends getting married this year and a ton more on their way to being engaged, I would definitely be making good use of the site, but what about the brides themselves?
As a bride you could spend thousands of dollars on your wardrobe. The wedding dress itself will leave you eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for at least a month, but what about the bridal shower, bachelorette or even the engagement parties and… well you get the point! Renting a dress for all those events sounds like a good idea to me, but would YOU rent your wedding dress? I wore my dress once and the last time I even looked at it was the day after my wedding (PS: that was six years ago).
I decided to check out the site to see what they have to offer and was pleasantly surprised.
This first dress that caught my attention retails for $995, but you can rent it for $75 bucks.
If perhaps you are looking for a gown more appropriate to a beach wedding, this Nicole Miller beauty retails for $1,400, but can be rented here for $225.
My final pick is Moschino, which retails for $1,595 and would be great for a court ceremony. This gown can be rented for $75.
So after perusing the site I ask the question again: Would YOU rent your wedding dress? As for me? If I were able to find my dream dress for a fraction of the cost then I would say absolutely!
