Rent the Runway

Wedding season has officially began. Instead of purchasing all new dresses let me tell you about another option. I've mentioned Rent the Runway in a previous post, here, but this post is fully dedicated to the site.

How it works: You search the site for a designer, type of dress, or occasion. This is the hardest part, trust me. I knew I wanted a lace dress shift dress so I started there and narrowed it down by the best reviews for my body type. You can narrow it down by color, length, or even neckline. 

So you found the perfect dress, now what? Next you pick the dates that you need the dress. I've noticed it's best to order your dress 1 to 2 months before your event so your dress doesn't sell out. You have the option to rent for 4 or 8 days. Unsure of your size? Read the reviews AND you get a back up size FREE. I normally order my normal size and then a size up. Designer dresses can run small.

Once you order you simply just wait for your dress to arrive! Rent the Runway has great customer service (I've experienced it) so if your dress doesn't fit they will work with you to send you another dress.  After you enjoy your dress you just put in the pre-label UPS envelope and drop it off at your nearest UPS store. No need to clean it or deal with any type of returns.

If you need another reason to check them out, Rent the Runway also has accessories to add to your overall look.
