Here’s Why You Should Rent Your Wedding Dress!
Save money and save space in your closet by renting your wedding dress, bridesmaid dress, or wedding guest attire from Rent The Runway!
Did you know that the average national cost for a wedding dress is $1,631? And depending on your dream dress style, the dress designer, and the store, you could end up spending thousands more! That’s a lot of money to spend on a dress you are only going to be wearing once.
By the same logic, mother-of-the-bride gowns and bridesmaid dresses can also be quite costly. Bridesmaid dresses typically cost between $100 and $200 dollars, while mother-of-the-bride dresses typically range from $200 to $800. Typically the wedding party will purchase their own dresses according to the bride’s specifications, such as by following a certain color scheme or buying a dress the bride has pre-selected. Depending on the wedding theme and dress requirements, your wedding party may also be shelling out a lot of cash for a dress they’ll only wear once. It’s a lot to ask of your friends and family, especially if their financial situation isn’t the best. And even if you have decided to buy the dresses for your mother and wedding party, it’s a huge expense for you that will take up a big chunk of your wedding budget.
But before you break out your checkbook, consider renting your wedding attire instead of buying it. Consider “shopping” for your wedding gown on websites like Rent The Runway. For as low as $69 a month, Rent The Runway will send fashion for any occasion, including weddings, straight to your door. Rent The Runway’s revolutionary fit tools help you find the right size, and you are also allowed a free do-over if your outfit doesn’t fit correctly. Then, all you have to do is wear your dress and return it when you’re done in Rent The Runway’s reusable garment bags. When all is said and done, you’ll save money because you won’t be paying hundreds to thousands of dollars for a dress that will only be collecting dust in your closet. And if you decide you really do want to keep your wedding dress, you can still purchase it from Rent the Runway at a discounted cost when the festivities are over!
