Those are really pretty! How much did they cost to rent? Did the bridesmaids get to try them on in advance, or did they come in right before the wedding?

I LOVE rent the runway, and have toyed with this idea myself. luckily, RTR has two showrooms in NYC now so we could try them on if we want. You can also do a new “try 5” option and have 5 dresses sent to you to try on for 24 hours.

Love that dress!  I eyed it for a month, wanting to rent t for a Gatsby party!  Maybe bachelorette?  😉

I was just looking at rent the runway for my engagement photo dresses, thanks so much for posting your review! I hadn’t thought about about it for bridesmaid but now I think you have sold me. The dress looks great on everyone! And you look gorgeous !

@HobbyLobbyist:  I am really hoping I can convince my girls to do this. I love the dresses your girls wore and would like the long navy version for my bms. I may be messaging you with questions soon.

Love RTR! Great idea for a wedding. Maybe even for mix and match dresses?

Those dresses are SOOOO pretty. What designer are they? I just showed some of my BM’s the Rent The Runway site and they liked the concept.

Thanks for the post. I really like this idea. I would have thought that it would be expensive but its not.

Thank you so much for sharing this!  I have always LOVED the idea of using RTR for weddings, but hadn’t seen anyone do it yet.  I’m so glad to know it went well.  The dresses look fantastic!

But theres no possibility of alterations. Wouldnt you be nervous that someone wouldnt have a dress that fits? I know you get two sizes but, I’d be scared. I do consider it though.

Where has this been all my life?!?! Thank you, HobbyLobbyist for posting this.  Unfortunately my bridesmaids have already bought their dresses, but I will definitely be using RTR for my engagement photo and rehearsal dinner dress.

MrsBuesleBee:  RTR has tons of pictures of REAL girls/women wearing the dresses (not models) with plenty of reviews.  That takes a lot of uncertainty out of the sizing issue because it’s so much easier to figure out what size you need after you see real people wearing them.  You can also call/chat with an RTR stylist if you need additional help with sizing.
