I plan on eloping in a few months. (I’m still waiting on a proposal). We’re working with a small budget to cover rings, my dress, an officiant and a photog. I’ll be DIYIng the photo album and flowers. And that’s it!!! So obviously I don’t want to spend a lot (over $200) for a dress I’m only gonna wear for a 15-20 min ceremony and some pics, but I want to look great for my FH and my pics.
Does anyone know where you can rent a wedding gown? Either online or in the Atlanta area. What about a reputable online used gown seller? Or an Atlanta area bridal consignment store?
Thanks In Advance bees!

I’ve never used it but heard great things about Rent the Runway – they offer designer dresses of all styles, some of which could be wedding dresses. I heard of it after seeing a real wedding on a blog or magazine in which the bride rented an Oscar de la Renta from them!

@luvmesumhim: I don’t know about places for renting, but this link lists the top 10 places for buying pre-owned gowns.
I got mine from preownedweddingdresses.com, which in included on that list.

@elysion: There was an AMAZING Reem Acra gown on there a while back that I would have rented for my wedding in a heartbeat if I hadn’t already purchased a dress.

I bought a used but never worn dress off oncewed.com. The dress was normally like $800 or $900 on JCrew & I got it for $300! 🙂
