BridesmadeSo you’ve been asked to be a bridesmaid? How exciting! But after that initial excitement, everyone knows that your bank account already starts to regret it and you begin getting worried about how you will fit this extra commitment into your busy-bee lifestyle. The good news is that the wedding industry has started to advance in the right direction, with the shift toward rental bridesmaid dresses! Trust us, this trend is transforming the life of bridesmaids. Read on to find out how!


There is absolutely no need to spend an obscene amount of money on a bridesmaid dress that you’ll only wear once, and will end up collecting dust in your closet for the rest of eternity. When you rent your dress, you will pay a fraction of the price (including shipping and cleaning) and have no need for extra alteration costs. That extra cash you saved can then be spent on tons of other things for the big day. You can now afford to rent matching bridal robes, or even matching flower girl dresses for your wedding party!

Environmentally Friendly

Textile waste is an ever present issue, with North Americans sending 9.5 million tonnes of clothing to landfills every year. By renting your bridesmaid dress, you can help avoid excess manufacturing and reduce textile waste in landfills. When it comes to something like bridesmaid dresses which almost never get worn again, it makes perfect sense to rent. Zero-waste, eco-friendly weddings are trending, but most importantly they are the right thing to do. For your upcoming wedding, do your part for the planet and go GREEN with your rental dress! Shop the look here.



Renting is simple and stress-free. Your bridesmaids will LOVE you! The entire process takes place online and can be completed in under 30 minutes. Plus, your dress will be delivered right to your doorstep, saving everyone precious time. Say goodbye to hour-long trips to multiple boutiques to find the perfect dress and appointments at a tailor for alterations. Savvy brides know that renting is the way to go!


There you have it. If saving time, money and being eco-friendly all at once sounds good to you – choose to rent for your upcoming wedding!
