Why Buying PreOwned Is Better Than Renting A Wedding Dress

Wedding Dress Rental Vs Buying PreOwned

What bride doesn’t want to save money on her dream wedding dress?  In 2004, PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com pioneered the wedding dress resale space as the first website dedicated exclusively to buying and selling.  In 2014, wedding dress rental has become a trend offering brides another way to save. But, the small additional savings come at a high price.

Limited Time Only
With a wedding dress rental, you can only have your wedding dress for a limited time before your big day.  So you can’t stare at it, smile at it, touch it, or even try it on until right before your wedding.  And isn’t that part of the fun?

Not A Perfect Fit
Alterations are a no-no with a rental gown.  There’s a reason brides have multiple dress fittings, it’s to get a perfect fit.  That made-just-for-you look that takes a gown from beautiful to absolutely perfect. With a rental, that impeccable fit just isn’t an option.

Nothing To Have and To Hold
Buying PreOwned means you’ll not only save up front, but you’ll get to keep the dress after your wedding.  Whether you resell it again and recoup some of your costs, or keep it for the memories, the decision is yours.  With a rental, you’ll need to ship the dress back before you even jet off for your honeymoon.
