Rented for rehearsal dinner..
I rented this dress, along with another maxi dress, for my wedding rehearsal dinner at an outdoor venue near the beach in SC. I ordered this on a whim because I really loved the colors and the print on this dress, and I figured it would be super snug to get into given it was a few sizes smaller than what I normally wear. Well, whether it was due to wedding-jitter-dieting or the dress running just a bit large, it zipped up with no problem! I LOVED this dress! The colors are really vibrant, and the print is very fun. I am 5'8'', and the dress hit just above my feet wearing flat sandals. It's gathered in the front, which hid any sort of tummy situation I had going on (I was trying to avoid wearing restrictive undergarments until the big day!) The only reason I did not end up choosing to wear this dress to my rehearsal dinner was that the top was a little more low cut than I was comfortable wearing in front of my future grandparents-in-law. This probably wouldn't be an issue for people with a smaller bust size, though. I plan on renting this dress again!
