From the moment you said “Yes!”, we know you’ve only had one thing on your mind: Planning the perfect wedding you’ve been dreaming of since you were 6. However, between finding the theme, choosing the decorations and planning the perfect reception, organizing a wedding is definitely not a piece of cake (pun intended)!
More often than not, you end up having to compromise on many aspects of your special day to stay within your budget. However, if there is one thing, we believe you shouldn’t have to compromise on, it is your look! And with more and more people choosing bridal dresses rental, you can find the perfect dresses for your rehearsal dinner, your wedding reception and all your other wedding celebrations while saving more money for your honeymoon!
Why Should You Rent Your Bridal Dresses?
First of all, we know how much sentimental value wedding dresses can carry. It is normal to want to hold onto these memories by keeping a special place in your closet for the different dresses worn at your wedding! However, we all know that the probability of you wearing these dresses or simply looking at them again are very slim. More often than not, they will only accumulate dust in your closet for many years after your special day!
So why not save money and the environment, while allowing you to wear luxurious designer gowns you couldn’t normally afford? Here are our 5 tips for bridal dresses rental to help you find the perfect dresses for your different wedding celebrations.
1. Start shopping in advance
When looking to purchase wedding dresses, people usually start shopping months in advance to have the time to visit different shops and try as many dresses as possible. When renting a dress, the process should be the same! The earlier you find your dream dresses, the sooner you can move on to planning the rest of your wedding with peace of mind. It also gives you time to get second opinions - or third, or fourth!
2. Look for inspiration
When getting your bridal dresses from a rental store, make sure to arrive with your list of criteria and preferences. Go on Instagram or Pinterest prior to find which dresses you like most or which styles you think would be best for the different ceremonies. It will make the styling experts’ job much easier!
3. Let experts help you
We understand how hard it can be to realize that the dress you had been impatiently waiting to try on just doesn’t look as good on you as it does on the picture. But don’t worry! This is what the styling experts are there for.
They know which dresses compliment which bodies and skin tones, and their suggestions will most likely help you find the perfect dress for you! Just make sure to book an appointment in advance.
4. Be open minded
Although we recommend coming to the store prepared, you should always stay open minded. It never hurts to try on dresses that might be out of your comfort zone. Who knows, you might be blown away by a dress you wouldn't have normally tried on!
5. Sleep on it!
Ask your friends to take pictures of the different dresses you try on before making an official decision. Since you are renting the dresses, there is no need to make impulsive decisions. You should always wait a few days to make sure these really are the dresses for you! You could also ask our team at Beyond the Runway to help you too.
