Everyone knows the tune of the traditional wedding march ”dum, dum, da, dum.” In an effort to save you from making your own “dumb, dumb, da, dumb” costly mistakes, I’m here to let you in on a little wedding planning secret…you can rent just about everything you’ll use on your wedding day!
Look Like a Million Bucks for a Whole Lot Less
TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com surveyed a group of newlyweds that married in 2012. Their findings revealed the average amount spent on a wedding last year was approximately $28,400. One of the more expensive items on the bride’s tab ended up being her wedding gown. Sure, we all want to look fabulous, but we also want to be able to eat more than just bread and water on your honeymoon. The secret saving solution? A wedding gown rental!
There are many sites across the web like that rent wedding dresses. I’m sure they are great, but I also know half the fun of finding your perfect frock is going to the store and trying on a bunch of styles with your besties by your side telling you how beautiful you look in every single one of them. For that reason, I’ve decided to feature companies including Birdy’s Bridal in South Florida, MyrJan in NYC, and My Daughter’s Wedding Shop in Philadelphia. Each of these have actual shops that you can visit and try on dresses to your heart’s content. Some are only available by appointment, so be sure to check them out before you load up your bridal party.
But Wait, There’s More
You already knew to rent the wedding the hall and the deejay. Now you know about the dress. Did you also know you can rent accessories, decorations, flowers, and even the cake (at least the one used for pictures)? It’s true! So before you exceed your budget (and trust me, you will), look into wedding rentals. You have my personal vow renting will save you time, money, and unnecessary stress.
