Wedding Dress Rental vs. PreOwned Purchase

If you are considering renting a wedding dress to save money, consider buying a preowned wedding dress instead. Buying preowned can actually be less expensive than renting (it’s true!) And there are so many other great benefits too.

 

Wedding Dress Rental

Wedding dress rentals typically range from $200 - $2,000. Gowns are often only delivered 1-5 days before the wedding, and usually must be returned 1 day after. A damage deposit of $200+ may also be required.

Additionally, wedding dress rental stock is very limited, no alterations are allowed, and the gown may have already been worn multiple times.

 

Buying a PreOwned Wedding Dress

PreOwned wedding dresses start as low as $100. (And PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com has nearly 20,000 wedding gowns for sale under $2,000).

If you buy your dress, not only will you have a larger selection of gowns to choose from, you won't have any time restrictions, and can alter it for a perfect fit. And fit is absolutely the difference between looking good and looking your very best.

Shudder the thought that your crazy uncle spills red gown down the back of your dress.  Not to worry, unlike a rental, you won't face any damage fees.  In fact, you won't have to worry about a single smudge or drop of dirt. You can just look and feel beautiful and enjoy your Day.
