We all know weddings are expensive…it’s no real secret. Whether you’re the maid of honour, bride, sister in law or attendee, you’re buying an outfit, potentially getting your hair and makeup done and paying for flights and/or accomodation, transport, food, a wedding gift and more! It’s no cheap affair. So what are modern brides doing now to save on their wedding day?
When we’re flooded with images of wedding goals on Instagram, Tik Tok and Pinterest, how can we achieve the perfect wedding look for less?
Fact: Wedding dresses aren't cheap. Generally costing at least four figures (sometimes more), the price of a gown sounds even more expensive when you consider that you'll only be wearing it once in your life (unless you get creative and wear your dress again, of course).
"The average bride spends between two and five thousand dollars on the wedding dress alone," says expert Blaire Walsh. "When only wearing that dress for approximately three to five hours, it just doesn’t seem worth it when you can focus on making your wedding dreams come true by having that firework sendoff or an extravagant Parisian-themed dessert table for your guests to indulge in."
Now more than ever we’re embracing rental or second hand and vintage wardrobes, so why not embrace a rental wedding dress? Hear us out.
Bride nowadays often have multiple wedding looks (and their guests might feel the need to too)! From the hens to the engagement party, rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and after party to the recovery day now very popular in 2022. These multiple looks add pressure on the bride to be spending big when in reality these pieces will probably never be worn again unless they’re resold or rehomed. The solution? Rent. Your. Wedding. Fits. (brides and guests included).
