I mean, not only could you get a steal of a deal on your rehearsal dinner dress, ladies brunch look, and heck maybe even your actual wedding dress. Maybe you wanted to change into a short gown, but didn’t want to spend another thousand dollars, well rent a 1,300 dollar Lela Rose for 150 bucks. You can get a designer rehearsal dinner dress for 50 bucks!!! Halston Heritage, See by Chloe, D&G... just to name a few.

You can also rent jewelry, headbands, and handbags. Yeah, this site is that awesome. 350 dollar earrings for 35 freaking dollars. That’s brilliant! Have you always wanted to carry a Judith Lieber clutch, but never thought you could afford the 1,600 dollar price tag. Rent one for just 150 dollars. So, it’s pretty ah-mazing. It’s by no means cheap, but it does save you a considerable amount of money if you have champagne taste and a beer budget.

So, all you have to do is sign up on the site and start borrowing. It’s that simple.
