And Rent the Runway, because maybe you aren’t someone who wants more clutter in their closet (even if that means returning your wedding dress after the “best day of your life.”) Proud of you!

Rent the Runway

Why they’re great: If you and your partner are planning to get married at City Hall, snap some lovey-dovey photos, then eat cake the rest of the day, you might as well get a bombshell of a dress you won’t mind returning once the day is over. TBH, this sounds like a great idea, as my wedding gown is sealed away in a box and stowed under a bed as we speak. Also! You can order a handful of potential gowns and have a fashion show with your family while trying to pick out “The One.” I’d suggest getting a membership (starting at $69) so you’ll have a plethora of outfits to choose from for all of your wedding-related events.

Shipping: Free 2-day shipping

Sizes: 0–22

Items we love: an ivory white crepe gown for $35+ (available as a one-time rental and with a membership and in sizes 0–16) and a white lace gown for $165+ (available as a one-time rental or with a membership and in sizes 2–10).
