Rent the Runway Experience [Steal]


One of my closest friends tied the knot last weekend and for her wedding, I decided to use Rent the Runway. I usually buy a new dress for every wedding I attend and then never use it again. I think renting a dress is such a great idea because you spend only a fraction of what it really costs. You save money and time.
Rent the Runway lets you choose a style in two sizes and then one more style in one size as a backup. I ordered a black dress as the main one and a blue one similar to the black as a backup. I rented the dress for only 4 days, from Thursday to Sunday.  I didn't get the dresses until Friday, because of the weather. But they let me return them on Monday, which is good. The dresses are sent in a garment bag with prepaid postal. You do not have to worry about anything else, no cleaning or buying postal stamps, everything is arranged.  

I received an email on Thursday saying that they were sending a different backup dress. They sent one of the ones I had liked on their website. I tried on the main dress in both sizes 8 and 10 (Off Shoulder Split Gown by JS Collection) and they did not fit! I tried on the backup dress (Royal Jennifer Gown by Fame & Partners) and it fitted a little tight from the waist (because I have no waist) but the length and everything else was perfect! So I wore it and although it was a little tight I loved how I looked! I really encourage you to always have a backup dress in your closet, just in case none of the rented ones fit correctly. 

For the four day rental, I paid $70. The total cost of the dress is $249. I saved $179. If you want to rent a dress CLICK HERE TO RENT A DRESS and get $30 offBut if you really like the dress here is the LINK TO BUY DRESS.

My faux fur shawl is from Amazon! I ordered it three days before the event, through amazon prime because I wasn't expecting cold weather.  

Overall the experience was good. I am not sure if I got lucky but the backup dress fitted perfectly.  I was pretty happy with the experience.
