How to Find Designer Budget Wedding Dresses

Perhaps you are determined to buy your own budget wedding dress. But think about it this way – it is something you will only wear for one day, and then it will live in your attic forever. Your possible future daughter may not want anything to do with wearing your dress. It is a lot of money to spend on a gown that may only ever see the light of day one time.

Some brides are making a different budget wedding decision. They are choosing to rent anything from a budget wedding dress to a designer wedding dress, rather than try to buy or make one. If you are interested in an expensive designer look, this can be an excellent way to pull it off on a budget, while keeping the memories and the photos long after you return the dress. And your guests never have to know that you didn’t purchase the gown!

Sites such as Rent the Runway offer a wide selection of designer dresses and accessories. RTR does not specialize in weddings, but with over 35,000 dresses and 20,000 accessories available for rental much more cheaply than you could buy them, you’re sure to find something that fits the bill for yourself or even for your bridesmaids. When you’re finished, just mail your rented items back in an envelope, and enjoy the memories of your designer look!

Similar sites include Bag Borrow or Steal and Adorn.com. Adorn.com actually specializes in renting out diamond jewelry to brides. You obviously don’t want to rent out a trio ring set, which will be an important keepsake and accessory throughout your marriage, but you might like to select from a wide variety of diamond earrings, bracelets, and necklaces that could complement your diamond cluster wedding and engagement rings. After investing in a trio ring set, you might not have much money left over in your jewelry budget, but you, like many other modern brides, might have room in your budget to rent some stunning diamond jewelry just for the big day.
