    I bought my dress. I just like the fact that my dress is going to be fitted perfectly to ME and that it’s my dress. I don’t like sharing. 😉 lol But really, if you buy your dress you can always sell it after the wedding as well (and then you have a dress that fits you perfectly for the wedding). I think I’m going to keep mine though… It’s sentimental.

    I bought a dress, but I wanted something more casual that I could wear again and inexpensive. If I was going to have a big fancy ball gown, I’d consider renting.

    I’ve actually never heard of renting a wedding dress (except back home in Las Vegas).  I bought mine because I am very short, and there is no way I could get the proper length without cutting the dress up.

    I didn’t even think of renting the dress, or heard of it.  Would you be able to alter a rented dress?  Guys rent their tux, so sure, why not.  If you dont care to keep it afterwards, renting is a great alternative and you dont have to deal with selling it.

    if i could’ve rented a really AWESOME dress, i would’ve. My wedding dress sits in a cedar closet. Haven’t looked at it since i got married…but it was also a $400 dress. So if my option was a) spend the money on a designer gown or b) rent a designer gown, i’d have chosen option B in a heartbeat!
