Wedding dresses are the bride’s most treasured piece in the entire wedding.
The dress accentuates the brides blushing beauty, drawing awe-inspired gazes
and sweet smiles from all the guests. The dress is the wow factor. From lacey
A-line dresses to full out Cinderella-fashioned ball gowns, you want to find
the perfect wedding dress for your day.
But you’re on a budget, and you want to save some of your wedding money for a
down payment on a house, first and last month’s rent, or buying furniture.
Renting your wedding dress will give you all the wiggle room you need to have
your cake and eat it to! Here are just a few things to think about if you’re
tossing around the idea of renting a gown.

**The Pros of Renting:** When you rent a dress, you can have your designer gown with all the lace, pearls, and material you want, without the expense. With renting, your options become a whole lot greater. Another thing to think about when tossing around the idea of renting is you won’t have to worry about where to store your dress. To be honest, storing that much material is just shy of a pain in the neck. Your closet is going to be full of you and your husband’s clothes, and finding enough room to store your gorgeous dress without worrying about tearing, staining, or ruining it can be tough. With renting a dress, you can send it back after your wedding, no hassle, worry, or extra storage space needed. **The Cons to Renting:** ****Wedding gowns hold sentimental value for just about any bride. It’s the one outfit you wore when your entire world changed; you started a new chapter with the love of your life in that gorgeous dress. Granted, if you’re on a tight budget, you might have to skimp on something else in order to have the gown of your dreams, but it’s well worth it. Plus, if you’re like some, you want your daughter to have the option of wearing it or sowing a piece of your dress onto hers on her big day. Depending on what you want most, whether it’s the perfect dress and extra closet space, or skimped décor to have the perfect wedding dress for forever, will depend on how you shop. Take the time to mull over what matters most to you, then go out and shop till you drop!
