if you buy it- you can re sell it. Do you think that is a possibility?

also if you buy do you get it new or used? would you get the exact dress? does it need any alterations?

It depends, do you think you can sell it afterwards?  If you can sell it for $600 (used dresses sell for about 50%), you are $300 better off than the rental price.  Even if you can only get $400 for it used, you are still better off than renting.

Honestly, for $300 – I would just buy it.  I don’t like the idea of wearing clothes that other people have worn thought – that’s just me.  I would like a dress for my wedding that I could call "mine" and could keep/pass down/etc.

I went to a lot of bridal salons on Las Tunas in Temple City, LA and they rented dresses for about $300.  You should consider looking there because I did for my wedding.  They have TONS of dresses to choose from, a lot of which are designer names.

Buy, then sell down the road if you want or need to.

I would love to rent a dress and would do so if there was anyplace near where I live that rented gowns. That being said, $900 to rent a $1200 dress is way out of line.
