This Dress Diary was brought to Rent the Runway by Lauren Cobb.
RTR is my obsession. I'm torn over whether I should shout it from the rooftops, or try to keep it my little secret! It is the easiest, most effortless way to guarantee a fabulous look and is an absolute must for weddings, bachelorette parties, showers, rehearsal dinners- you name it, you're covered. That’s why I chose to rent throughout my entire wedding process. I would have dressed my bridesmaid in RTR but RTR Weddings hadn’t launched yet- bummer!
For my first wedding shower, I rented the Tibi High Tea dress. It was so cute and I think, perfect for a wedding shower. I got a lot of compliments on this dress. My bridesmaid picked the Shoshanna Optical Bustier dress and looked great as well.
The second shower was a little dressier, so I went with the Mark & James by Badgley Mischka Strapless Starburst dress. This one was so fun to dress up with colorful accessories. It was light and soft and incredibly easy to wear!
The bachelorette party was at the W hotel in Dallas. Several of my girls chose RTR, and everyone looked great! My dress, I must admit, was my favorite rental to date. It was the Yigal Azrouel Very Violet Draped Dress. Gosh, what a stunning dress… I didn't want to take it off. It also photographs beautifully because of the gorgeous color. Love.
Lastly, the rehearsal dinner. I called a stylist to choose the perfect dress and she went through the inventory with me to help me find the right one. I decided on the Cynthia Vincent Metallic Mesmerizer, and there it was on my doorstep the very next day. This dress was so beautiful- and incredibly comfortable! It looked great with black tights and a shrunken blazer. I was so impressed with the level of customer service and how much she cared to help me.
I thank Rent the Runway so much for thinking of me- this service has been a dream!
