    This is quite common in other countries. It makes so much more sense than buying dresses – not only is it cost effective but there’s so much less waste!

    • Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall

    I personally would not because I’m a huge sentimental packrat, but if you aren’t I don’t see why not! It sounds like the perfect solution.

    @miah1031:  I think it’s a great idea. I’m sure the fact that I have been married before influences my feelings, but wedding desses are a huge expenditure for most brides.

    There is a place in the suburbs of Vancouver that rents wedding dresses.


    I’m sure there are vendors near you too.

    • Wedding: October 2013 - The Fox Hill Inn

    @miah1031:  I had briefly considered renting my weddig gown, but ended up falling in love with one while dress shopping with my mom and bought it instead. There are a few shops in Flushing, NY which is part of Queens (sort of a Chinatown/Koreatown area) where you can rent wedding gowns. It’s fairly common in  some Asian traditions.

    I’m considering this still! Although there are no rental places where I’m from, I don’t think. Let me know how it goes!

    I would!!!

    I didn’t, but I did just dye my dress black and wear it to a formal dinner, so at least I’ll get multiple uses from it!

    I agree that it’s a shame to spend a bunch of money on an amazing dress that will be worn once and then just take up space. If you can find a dress you love, I think renting is a great option!

    @miah1031:  Renting is a great idea! I wish I had thought about it before I ordered my dress a few months ago because I already know that I won’t be keeping my dress after my wedding. My current plan is to donate it.
