Let’s face it – Being in a wedding is an honor but it’s also expensive! Dresses, shoes, undergarments, makeup, hair and jewelry costs add up quickly. While some brides may offer to pay for some of the expenses, it is also not uncommon for bridesmaids to pick up all their own costs as part of being in a wedding.
Vow To Be Chic has totally changed the expensive stigma associated with buying a bridesmaid dress that will only be worn once. Sorry, but even though you had the best of intentions, we all know your bridesmaid probably won’t wear that $290 chartreuse gown again. Bridesmaids can now rent the same fabulous gowns for a fraction of the cost made by designers all over the world. Brands like Monique Lhuillier, Jenny Yoo, Nicole Miller, Donna Morgan, and many more can all be rented for under $100.
The site makes it super simple for brides to manage and track the whole ordering process. Brides will curate a bridal suite where dresses are selected for each bridesmaid. Once ready, Vow To Be Chic will send invitations to your girls to rent the dresses chosen for them. You can track which dresses were purchased and even send reminders if they have not been ordered yet.
We were lucky enough to get a first-hand experience of what it’s like renting a dress from Vow To Be Chic. Christina, an Editor here at Glittery Bride, was more than happy to model the stunning Valerie gown in Blush designed by Monique Lhuillier.
The whole ordering process was so simple, it can be done in 5 easy steps!
Select the option to rent, buy or try on.
Choose your color- we went with blush. You even have the option to request 2 free color swatches if you want to see an actual sample of the dress colors before you order.
Choose your preferred length. They offer two custom hems for all their floor length dresses. If you are 5’1” – 5’5” you should go with the regular length. If you are 5’6” – 5’10” it is recommended you select the long length.
Choose your size. To ensure a perfect fit, Vow To Be Chic will send your dress in two different sizes. Be sure to use their helpful size chart and choose a size based on your measurements and a free second size just in case. There are lots of resources on the site including personalized sizing help from one of their bridal stylists.
Choose the date of the wedding or event. It is important to choose the correct date to verify the dress will be available for the exact date needed. Dresses will arrive 2 weeks before your event.
As promised, the dresses arrived in style and on time! – We were floored by the amazing fit and the perfect hem length. If you are looking for a way to save your bridesmaids some money, then Vow To Be Chic is a must. Your bridesmaids will love you for it!
