4 Tips for Renting Your Wedding Dress

Unwana Umosen

Ladies plan their weddings to be the most memorable day of their lives. They would want to look back twenty years later and tell the story of what it took to get that wedding dress. Not just with pictures, but the jewelry, shoes and the dress!

However, buying a dress costs a lot of money. If you are getting married on a budget, renting dresses is an easy way out. Now that you’re not getting a dress customized for you, there are a few things you must know.

1. Search for your dress on time:

Beautiful rented dresses are scarce. You don’t want to get to the best rental shop and realize that the dress that caught your eye online, is no longer available. Always have the upper hand in every situation. Trust me, you may not be the only one wedding that weekend, neither will you be the only one renting a dress.

2. Be careful during your reception:

You can be excited you got a great bargain. You can dance all you want during your reception because your wedding was a huge success and you’re getting married to your best friend. However, you don’t want to dance so much and mistakenly rip the dress or destroy it totally. You will pay for that damage, and that is an extra debit from your bank account, which you didn’t plan for. It only brings back the nightmare of the spending money buying a new dress.

3. Ensure to try it on before making payments: 

Do not rush the process. Your wedding dress is what will appear in the pictures throughout. It will be left hanging on the wall in your sitting room and resting by the table in your bedroom. You don’t want to take all those pictures down because you hated how you looked in your wedding dress. Make sure the dress fits properly and it has no issues. When you’re absolutely sure and ready to pay, then you’re good to go.

4. Do not be too expectant:

 Renting a dress is way cheaper than buying one, but don’t expect the price to be extremely low. You can’t rent a good dress at the price of a regular jumpsuit. It just doesn’t work that way. So, keep it in mind that just because you must have heard renting a dress is way cheaper, you may not get it as cheap as you expected.

5. You can’t have it your way:

Most dresses, have been worn by others and were customized for others. When looking to rent a dress, have an open mind to different styles. If you want your wedding dress a specific way, you need to remind yourself that you don’t have the money for that kind of luxury.

Many ladies get lucky to rent wonderful dresses and look amazing for their wedding. Note these tips and you won’t regret it. Enjoy the renting process!
