Rent this Badgley Mischka Hidden Waterfall Gown

 

Rent the Runway-Chances are you’ve already heard of Rent the Runway.  This massive online store allows you to rent thousands of dresses hundreds of different designers.  Need a ballgown for a black-tie gala? They’ve got a dress for that. Need something slinky and sexy for the bachelorette party in AC? Yep, they’ve got about 600 options.  While they don’t have a bridesmaid dress section per se, with so many options brides are bound to turn to them to look for bridesmaid dresses.  The sheer variety means that you can opt for non-bridesmaidy dresses like a shift from Lilly Pulitzer or a gown like the Badgley Mischka dress to the left.

Swatches: No.

Best for: Designer bridesmaid options; Brides who want non-traditional bridesmaid dress options

 

Weddington Way-If you haven’t heard of Weddington Way, you are missing out on a vital “Bride’s Little Helper.”  Weddington Way allows you to set up an online webpage where you select the dresses you want and your girls can just logon and buy them.  Easy!  Now, they allow you to rent some of their dresses.  Rentals are $75 or the girls could purchase the dress for $129.  The biggest downside-right now, the dress rentals are only available in 6 colors and 6 styles.

Swatches: Yes.
