Tips to Rent a Wedding Gown?

Jul 31, 2008
Wedding gown is of course very important. Everyone will be look at you when you are walking down the aisle. You should pay a lot of attention on the details of your wedding dress.

There are some people who will purchase a new wedding dress. There are even brides who will hire a designer and design a new wedding dress. However, in most cases this will be a more expensive option.

On the other hand, you may want to save some money on your wedding dress. One of the things you can do is to ask your relatives to see if they have a wedding gown that you can use. You may even wear the gown your mother wore when she got married.

If the above idea of wearing the gown of your mother is not an option for you for some reason, you may consider renting a wedding gown. In fact, you need to be very careful when you rent the gown. If you are not careful enough, you may need to spend more money than you originally need to.

The first thing you need to know is that you have to rent the wedding dress about half year before your big day. Usually, you will need to alter the gown such that it can fit you. If you are going to order during the peak season, you may even need to place your order even earlier. If you do not allow enough time for the alteration of the gown, your wedding will become a mess.

It is also very important for you to check the wedding dress carefully when you pick up the gown. You have to check it with the staff in the bridal shop. If you find any problems of the dress, you have to tell the staff. You should try to see if there is any dirt or damage. You need to take a photo of the dirt or damage and give a copy to the staff of the bridal shop. You should also write down all these in the contract you are going to sign. You are doing this because you would like to prevent any unnecessary arguments when you return the dress.

You may wonder why you need to spend so much time on the dirt and damages. This is indeed a way to protect yourself. If you do not check for all the damages beforehand, you may not know how the gown is damaged if you find them when you return the gown. In this case the chance is that the bridal shop may apply some kind of penalties. However, the point here is that you will be just wasting your money if the damage was there when you pick up the gown. As a result, you should check the dress very carefully when you pick up the dress.

You may also want to know when you need to pick up the dress. The best time to pick it up is three to four days before your big day. This is because you can make sure that the dress will still fit you in your wedding.
