Brides and bridesmaids there’s good news in the wedding apparel industry that will eliminate unwanted, once worn bridesmaids dresses from collecting dust in the closet years after the wedding. Similar to Bag Borrow or Steal (Avelle) – an online source to rent authentic designer handbags and accessories – Rent the Runway Weddings just launched designer bridesmaid dress rentals. Designer bridesmaids dresses that range from hundreds to thousands of dollars can be rented for a fraction of the cost (90% less than retail). Rent the Runway Weddings offers fashionable bridesmaids dresses in various colors, fabrics, styles, sizes and designers, such as Badgley Mischka, Calypso, Robert Rodriguez, Shoshanna and Nicole Miller. Bridesmaids get the designer look without breaking the bank and don’t have to store a bridesmaid dress they’ll likely never wear again.
How it works: Rent the Runway guarantees that dresses are delivered cleaned and on time. Receive a backup size for free. Rent a second dress for just $25. Send the bridesmaid dress back after the wedding at no cost. $5 optional insurance covers any damage.
