- Wedding: July 2011
I’m considering renting a formal gown b/c FI and I are young, happy, in love, and totally broke Our parents are both helping with the wedding and we’re saving every penny possible, but we have decided we’d still like to keep the overall budget extremely low just for practicality’s sake <– unromantic, I know, but it works for us.
I’ve fallen in LOVE with a very formal venue – a glass community chapel that is truly breathtaking. However, such a venue almost requires a formal gown and I really just cannot fathom spending 100s or 1000s of dollars on a gown I’d wear for one day (nothing against those who do!). So – I thought I could rent a fancy, fabulous bridal gown just for the ceremony and for our luncheon reception, wear a fabulous BCBG dress or something along those lines.
So I’m wondering has anyone else rented a gown? What was it like? Were you able to find stores with good selections? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
