Every bride dreams to look gorgeous on her wedding day- the most beautiful woman in the room. However, the major contributor to the bride's overall appearance is the wedding dress which is expected to be a one-of-a-kind beauty.
Nevertheless, finding the perfect dress for your style, theme and figure can be a daunting task. Most brides opt for the idea of buying a dress they can pass on or keep for monumental value while others choose to rent a perfect dress for the big day.
On one hand, buying a dress for these purposes may be a bad idea due to moths and ever changing trends, while renting a dress on the other hand can be great for your budget, because it's ultimately cheaper to rent than it is to design or buy.
Fortunately, there are several wedding dress rentals that provide top quality wedding dresses and some wedding designers or bridal stores offer dress rental services at affordable prices – with conditions on maintenance.
Even though finding a wedding dress rental is almost as hectic as finding the perfect wedding dress, we have made it easier for you. We have listed a few steps that will help you find the best wedding dress rentals.

1.     Delivery
This is the most important thing to consider in selecting a wedding dress rental. The main point of renting a dress is to reduce the cost of buying one, so you need to make sure that the rental's delivery policy is reliable and convenient for your purposes.
The standard procedure in most wedding dress rentals is that, after selecting the dress you wish you to rent, the delivery and alteration charges are included and you have the option to pick it up instead.
Using a wedding dress rental close to you will ensure that you get what you want in the right place at the right time and within returning distance.

2.     Style and design
The design of your dream dress is the next important thing that you should consider when looking for a wedding dress rental.
Since you will not have a designer to make your specific dress, you need to highlight rentals that allow you to upload a design of your dream dress. Uploading your design will help them narrow the dresses that will be displayed to you and if you're lucky, they will have something very close to your dream dress.
Also, depending on the style you want your dress to be (if you don't have a particular dress design) you should only look out for wedding dress rentals that stock dresses that fit within your style of choice.

3.     Selections
Whether you have a dress, design or style in mind, it's best to look for a rental service that offers a vast selection of wedding dresses. The availability of options will help so that you don't come up blank if you don't find something similar to your dream dress.
Having alternatives at hand can lead you to the perfect dress for your wedding ceremony.

4.     Brand
If there is a particular brand or designer which you want your wedding dress to be made of then, it's best if you search for a wedding dress rental shop that stocks that designer or brand.
Most bridal shops and wedding dress stores have particular designers whose dresses they display regularly. If you're looking for a particular designer then it's best to find wedding dress rentals that has that designer's dresses in stock.

5.     Fallback
Renting a wedding dress shouldn't be your fallback plan. If you're buying a dress, buy one, but if you're renting, you need to place your order at least 3 months before the due date. Otherwise, you may not get a dress of your choice.
So, when searching for a wedding dress rental, go for a place that allows you to place your order months ahead in case of alterations or unexpected mishaps.
