March 17, 2018

Men have been renting for years, while women have been left behind. But that's not the case anymore! These days you can rent almost anything for your wedding, and that includes bridesmaid dresses. 

While we sell our dresses too, most of our #MadeMaids choose to rent their dresses. It's no wonder why - there are so many reasons to rent dresses instead of buying them. We all know that most bridesmaids only wear their dress once! That's why we're sharing 5 reasons why renting your bridesmaid dress is our favourite option!

1. It's more affordable.

Being a bridesmaid should be an honour! But too often, it can become a hardship because of financial stress. Bridesmaid dresses can easily cost a few hundred dollars and when you add in alterations, it becomes a big investment for the average bridesmaid. Renting your dress can save you hundreds of dollars! BridesMade rents dresses starting at just $70 - check them out here

2. It's better for the environment.

Did you know that in North America, consumers throw out 5 times more textiles than we did 25 years ago? Most of these textiles end up in landfills which amounts to about 10.5 million tons of textile waste. This is the consequence of fast fashion, where you buy an article of clothing and have to throw it out soon after due to poor quality, or because it's not 'on-trend' anymore. Renting your bridesmaid dresses can help significantly decrease your environmental footprint, because the dress doesn't end up in the landfill and is reworn multiple times! It's an easy way to make your wedding eco-friendly. Learn more about BridesMade's environmental efforts in our social responsibility report here

4. It saves closet space.

We all know the infamous scene in the movie '27 Dresses' where Katherine Heigl opens her closet to find her 27 bridesmaid dresses bursting out. No one wants their closet full of bridesmaid dresses that they'll never wear again. Rent your bridesmaid dresses instead and save your closet for clothes you actually wear!

5. Your bridesmaids will love you for it.

Your bridesmaids will totally love you for giving them the option to rent their bridesmaid dresses! They care deeply about you, and when you put the rental option in front of them, they will know that you really care about them, too! They can look and feel great, all while save money.



These are just a few of the many reasons why renting your bridesmaid dresses is the way to go. In our modern world, renting is the future, so let your girls and your wedding be a part of that! Shop BridesMade today!
