I don’t see why it would be! Sounds like a great solution.

Not at all.  Wear the borrowed dress and think of all the $ you just saved!!!

Uhhhh, no.  Girly you can wear whatever you want!  For one, how would anyone know it’s a borrowed dress except for you and your friend unless you go telling people that you didn’t buy it?  Don’t worry about it!  If you love it then consider it one more thing marked off your list so you don’t have to stress over a piece of clothing anymore.

Borrowing sounds like a great idea! My theory is that for weddings, there are no rules for the bride, just rules for others to follow at the bride’s request Wink

Sounds like you really love the dress, so why not!  No one has to know!

My rehearsal dinner dress was 80% off at a Dillard’s clearance store. I think I got more compliments on it than tons of other dresses that I have paid full price for. It doesn’t matter where you get it from or how much you spend, just find something that you love. A borrowed dress is a great way to go!

No way! I have yet to hear a rule stating that a bride has to buy a new dress for the rehearsal. Heck, brides buy used wedding gowns all the time, why would it be any different for the rehearsal?

No I think you should totally go for it!!  Besides, who would know?  I’m often on the ‘recieving’ end of this, since I have more dresses then I know what to do with and am more than happy to ‘swap clothes’ with friends.  I’m sure she’ll feel really happy to be helping out, and you have a gorgeous dress that you obviously love – and (BONUS!) it’s free!  I don’t see why it would be a bad thing 🙂

Nope!! That’s actually a perfect solution to not being able to find one.

I’m actually thinking of wearing something I already have.. but I’m still on the lookout for something I love. I think you should go for it!>

I think its a great solution.  You get to wear a dress you love AND you don’t have to spend more money!

BTW – I’m glad I’m not the only one who buys a bunch of stuff only to return it all because it isn’t quite right.  FI doesn’t understand this at all.
