Little Borrowed Dress offers classically chic bridesmaid dresses for rent at a quarter of the retail price – saving your friends money and closet space.
Weddings are celebrations of a lifelong commitment between two loving individuals. They are also expensive. Whether you have a huge event or a smaller ceremony, the costs of getting married quickly add up. Little Borrowed Dress exists in order to help save brides, their friends and their families time and money. The company operates on the principle that bridesmaid dresses are typically bought once, then discarded or left in a closet, never to be worn again. Little Borrowed Dress allows bridesmaids to rent dresses directly from the site at a fraction of the price they would typically cost. This offers a useful alternative to the standard practice of purchasing dresses in full.
Little Borrowed Dress features 18 different dress colors to choose from. The site also sends free fabric swatches so that you can compare various colors before going with your final choice. The site offers a combination of 12 different dresses, starting at only $50. They also work with a variety of sizes, and they always send a backup just in case. Like most wedding ceremonies, using Little Borrowed Dress does require a fair amount of advance planning. The site requests that orders be placed at least three months in advance, to ensure arrival time two weeks before the wedding date. The site also sends a pre-paid envelope for bridesmaids to return their dresses with free shipping, two days after the ceremony. If you live in the New York City area, Little Borrowed Dress also features a brick-and-mortar showroom, where bridesmaids can try on the dresses before making a decision on size or color. They also occasionally take their dresses on the road, with upcoming shows in Houston, TX, Washington DC, and Seattle, WA.
