Would You Wear a "Rented" Wedding Dress?

Last week during my ride on the train, I overheard two ladies discussing wedding dresses.  I wasn't sure if one of the ladies was getting married or if they knew of someone getting married.  However, they were both discussing how expensive wedding dresses are.  So one of the ladies suggested to the other that she "rent" a wedding dress which brings me to ask this question, "would you wear a rented wedding dress?"

Many brides may feel renting a dress is a great idea since it is only worn that one day.  Since the majority of grooms rent the tux for the wedding, a bride may feel it should be okay for her to rent her dress.  Keep in mind that your wedding day is a once in a LIFETIME experience.  I know many brides have dreamed of there wedding day since they were a little girl and even though the dress may never be worn again, memories are to be cherished of that special day, shared with their children, grandchildren, etc., and the wedding dress is a huge part of the wedding experience.

While renting may be a good money saving option, keep in mind that the dress may not be altered to fit the bride because it is rented.  If you are on a tight budget, another suggestion may be to purchase a "used" wedding dress.  However, many of the bridal stores have great sales on their wedding dresses, some as low as $99.

Many wedding traditions are specific to cultures, but there is one component of the ceremonies that generally remains universal:  the beautiful, delicate dress of the bride.  So keep that in mind when you are deciding whether or not to rent, buy used or purchase a new wedding gown for your once in a lifetime experience.
