This past fall we had our pregnancy pictures taken by the lovely Holly Nylund Photography. The pregnancy was so special to us and I really wanted to have it captured beautifully. In my closest was an array of dresses, mostly in blues and blacks, but since we were expecting a baby girl I wanted something more girly and glamorous for the portraits.
I’ve been wanting to rent a dress from Rent The Runway for quite some time now, so what better excuse than for the pregnancy pictures. Rent The Runway has designer dresses from the biggest names in the industry! It’s like a dream come true to rent such beautiful dresses. We had a past client rent a dress for her engagement session and it was stunning (image below)! Here is my personal experience with Rent The Runway;
Read The Reviews: It was super helpful to see how the dress fit on real women and what their thoughts were. I’m that nerd that totally reads all the reviews before I buy anything, so I found this super helpful. It ultimately led to my deciding on the perfect dress.
They Have It All: Short, long, plus size, sparkly, and so much more! Rent the runway truly has something for everyone! I found the perfect dress for the maternity photos and I can see how this site would be perfect to rent a dress for engagement pictures, the rehearsal dinner, bridesmaid dresses, and a cocktail party.
Two Dresses: Yep, they send you not one but TWO dresses in different sizes to ensure that one dress fits properly. I read the customer reviews and reserved one dress size based off of the reviews and the other dress size based on what I typically wear. It was reassuring to know that one was bound to fit.
Easy, Friendly, and Fast: It was easy to find the perfect dress and reserve it for the session. I called customer service in regards to the reservation date and they were so friendly, they even extended my rental by a few days for no extra charge. Returning the dress is simply! Place the dress in the pre postmarked bag, seal, and drop it off in the mail! I loved that I didn’t have to worry about dry cleaning or stopping at the post office!
I’m already looking forward to my next excuse to rent a dress! Maybe girls night out, date night, or simply just because I want to get all glammed up. No matter what the reason is I know that I’m in good hands with Rent The Runway.
