How cool is this? Rent the Runway, the online source for renting designer duds, is launching Rent the Runway Weddings this upcoming Tuesday, January 18th!
You can now rent designer bridesmaid dresses. How amazing is that? Because in truth, you only wear that dress ONCE. You can find bridesmaid dresses designed exclusively for Rent the Runway by top designers Badgley Mischka, Robert Rodriguez and Nicole Miller. Bridesmaid dress rentals will start at $65 and include a one-day fitting in addition to an 8-day rental period.
“Bridesmaids dresses are the quintessential dress women only wear once,” Rent the Runway president and co-founder Jenny Fleiss said in a release, “with Rent the Runway Weddings, we’ll finally solve the ’27 Dresses’ problem.”
FYI: The site will also carry dresses for the bride too (but not the dress), to outfit her for all the events surrounding the wedding–rehearsal dinner, reception dress (yes, they even have a category for the “little white dress” for the bride who wants to change into something sexier after the ceremony), bridal shower etc.
