A little while ago I wrote a post about a few of my favorite websites for the upcoming wedding season. I had a black tie wedding at the end of June and instead of spending hundreds on a dress I will never wear again, I decided to rent a dress from Rent the Runway.
I looked at RTR over and over again for days but kept coming back to the same dress. This pink ML by Monique Lhuiller dress. While placing my order I decided to pay for their "Pro" option. For $30 you get free shipping/insurance for a year plus you get a free dress for your birthday. If you were to just order without Pro, shipping and insurance cost $15 per transaction so I figured I was halfway there anyway.
A day after I placed the order I received another email from RTR promoting their "mystery stylist" option. For $15 you are sent an accessory their stylist believes goes with the dress. I ended up taking the leap and trying this out as well. Didn't seem like much of a gamble and since I knew I was not going to have a chance to get to shop for any accessories it seemed like a smart decision. I was sent a beautiful Kate Spade bracelet that is usually rented for $40! I was so happy with their selection and my sister had the perfect coordinating earrings I was able to borrow.
When I received it I was not confident in my decision but once my hair and make up were done I felt like a princess. I have received countless compliments on my dress!
I would strongly recommend using RTR for any events. The process is so easy and returning the dress is a piece of cake. I can not wait until I have my next reason to rent.
