Bridesmaid dress shopping is generally not the easiest part of wedding dress shopping. In fact, I’ve written previously about how challenging the search was for my own wedding! I love hearing about anything that makes the process easier, which is why I’m delighted to introduce you to Little Borrowed Dress – bridesmaid dresses you can rent, for a surprisingly affordable price!
Little Borrowed Dress offers an easy solution to finding a stylish, affordable dress for your bridesmaids. And yes, we really do mean affordable — most short styles are $50 to rent, and most long dresses are $75. The dresses are also available for purchase, if your bridesmaids prefer, and those prices are great, too! (Generally $150 to $185.) If you’d like your bridal party to wear a long gown, I think LBD is an especially great option, because most long styles tend to be a minimum of $250, and even if your gals like the dress, they probably won’t have too many other opportunities to wear it. (If only we got to get gussied up and go somewhere fancy every day!)
Little Borrowed Dress offers 12 lovely styles in 18 colors (and you can order three free fabric swatches!). Every dress is made in New York, which helps keep the quality high. We also love that LBD shows women of all shapes and sizes modeling their dresses on their website, giving you a more accurate idea of what the dresses might look like on your gals. They even have options for pregnant friends! Here are a few of our favorites:
Wondering how it works? Once you’ve made your color and style decisions, place your rental reservation online. Your dresses will arrive two weeks before the wedding ready to wear, and they even include a second size with every rental just in case! Post-wedding, drop them in the mail in pre-paid packaging, and LBD will take care of the rest.
