Rather than spending thousands on something that’s going to be worn once, brides can spend as little as $29 renting a gorgeous dress for the big stroll down the aisle. Renting can also put dresses that would otherwise be out of reach in your hands for a fraction of the price. You can wear designers like Oscar de la Renta on your wedding day for far less than $1,000. And when you factor in what your partner has already spent on your engagement ring, not to mention other wedding expenses, it would be cool to wear an incredible dress for a lot less.

Because, seriously, budget-savvy brides don’t have to buy a whole wedding dress. For the sentimental among us, trust that by the time your daughter gets married, she’s not going to want to wear your 20- to 30-year-old gown. It’s going to be out of fashion.

Before you rent your dress, be sure to download The Krazy Coupon Lady app for more savings tips for your wedding day and beyond.


1. Rent the Runway

Rent the Runway is a fashion site that allows you to either rent or purchase gently used designer items.

How it works

You can set up a subscription with Rent the Runway, but for your wedding, you can also place a single rental order. Choose between keeping the dress for either four or eight days, and Rent the Runway will send a backup size to you, too, just in case.

Save 20% on your first onetime rental with code GETDRESSED.

Who it’s best for

If you want a designer dress that looks bridal without actually being bridal, Rent the Runway could be good for you. Each dress usually comes in sizes 0 – 14. It’s not like you’re renting a singular dress; Rent the Runway has stock for each design.

Sample Dresses

Rent the Runway has bridal-looking dresses by top designers that aren’t necessarily bridal. But they will have you looking fabulous in white.

Aidan Mattox White Lace Satin Dress


This style is available for rent for just $57. But it’s a popular dress, so the rub is that you’ll have to catch it while it’s in stock. For this particular design, you do have the option to purchase for $97.50, which is almost $100 off original retail price.


Badgley Mischka White Award Winner Gown

Rent this lacy design for just $68 – $80 (depending on your wedding date). You can also purchase it outright for $184.50. Original retail price was $615.


2. FashionPass

FashionPass is a subscription service, but you can hack it to only pay a reduced price for a 1-month subscription. Similar to Rent the Runway, you’ll find bridal-esque dresses that don’t necessarily come from a bridal designer.

Alternatively, you can purchase gently used dresses from FashionPass.

How it works

To use FashionPass, you have to set up a monthly subscription. If you’re only using it for your wedding, we’d suggest the smallest package, which gives you two clothing items and one accessory per order for $29/mo. After the first month, you’ll be charged $89/mo.

But you do have the option to cancel after your big day. So theoretically, you could just get the one month for $29. That’s leaving your wedding dress rental until the last minute, though, so this setup really only works if you’re pretty flexible.

Right now, you can get $60 off your first month (which could effectively make it free) by using code WELCOME.

Who it’s best for

FashionPass is best for flexible brides who are looking to save big bucks. Most of the dresses run on the smaller side, so you’ll have the most options if you’re below a size 10. Some dresses do run through size XL.

Sample Dresses

These dresses may not have been meant for bridal, but they certainly pull it off.

Elliatt Camo Dress


You can rent this short, sleek white dress under the $29/mo plan. Or you can purchase it for $54. It originally retailed for $136.

Likely Miller Dress

$113.00 $378.00 (70% Off)

This whimsical dress is one that exemplifies the smaller sizes available on FashionPass — it only runs through size 6. If it fits, though, it is available under the $29/mo plan, or you can purchase it for $113. Original retail price was $378.

3. Fashion to Figure Closet

We think it’s annoying when companies only offer tiny sizes, too. Luckily, there are other options like Fashion to Figure that offer up to size 4X.

How it works

Fashion to Figure is a monthly subscription service. Packages start at three items per month for $55. Currently, you can get 50% off your first two months as a first-time renter using promo code FTF50.

If you love the piece you rent, you do have the option to keep it and purchase it. Most prices are 50%+ off retail.

Who it’s best for

Fashion to Figure is best for those who are frustrated with the lack of larger sizes on other rental sites. It’s also good for those who might change their mind and not want to return their wedding dress after the big day after all.

Sample Dresses

You’ll find a lot of shorter dress options at Fashion to Figure this season. Again, they’re not necessarily bridal lines, but they’re plenty bridal enough, depending on your personal fashion tastes.

Maritza Cutout Lace Midi Dress

$113.00 $378.00 (70% Off)

Rent this lacy dress through Fashion to Figure’s membership program — or you can purchase it outright for $77.97. It originally retailed for $129.95, so you get 40% off.

Leandra Cutout Embroidered Dress

$24.98 $99.94 (75% Off)
Not quite a 2-piece set, this unique dress can be rented under the membership plan and/or purchased for just $24.98 — that’s 75% off the original retail price.



4. Tulerie

Tulerie specializes in high fashion. Prices can vary, as it’s a network of individual “lenders” you’re working with rather than a single company. However, Tulerie suggests to lenders that they list at 5% of the original retail price for 4-day rentals.

How it works

There’s no membership fee to join Tulerie — you pay on a by-the-rental basis. But it is a bit onerous to get into their borrower network. To rent, you’ll have to download their app. Then you need to fill out an application. Finally, you’ll have to complete a FaceTime application interview to meet the Tulerie gatekeepers.

If you make it through the process, you’ll be able to see rental prices on individual items. Until then, you can only see purchase prices.

Who it’s best for

Tulerie is best for those who want designer dresses in sizes 0 – 14. You’re also going to have to sit through that interview, so if you don’t have the patience, you might want to look to another clothing rental company.

Sample Dresses

Once again, the dresses on Tulerie aren’t all necessarily “bridal” by design, but they’re more than fancy enough to wear on your wedding day.

L’Agence Long Deep V Pleated Gown


This gorgeous gown is only available in size 2. By nature of the individual lender network Tulerie has set up, you aren’t likely to get options for different sizes of the same design. Just one. Rental info is not available until you make it through that interview process, but you can purchase it for $425.

Rosie Assoulin Rosette Voile Halter Midi Dress

Another option that’s only available in size 2, this halter dress sells for $795. Rental prices are available after you’re admitted to Tulerie’s borrower network.

5. Nuuly

Nuuly rents dresses and other clothing items as part of a monthly subscription plan. Sizes tend to run from XXS through XL.

How it works

You pay $88/month, and Nuuly sends you six rental items per month. You can pause or cancel your subscription whenever. If you fall in love with a particular item, you can choose to purchase it outright.

Who it’s best for

Nuuly is best for those who are willing to pay $88/month in order to get volume — six items per month. If you’re only using it for your wedding dress, you can cancel after just the one month.

Sample Dresses

Almost all designs come in multiple sizes at Nuuly.

Mae Midnight Midi by Finders Keepers

$88.00 $188.00 (53% Off)

Get the Mae Midnight Midi as a part of your 6-part monthly package.

Surplice Silky Maxi Dress by C/meo Collection

$88.00 $220.00 (60% Off)
Another wedding dress option to include in your monthly Nuuly subscription is the Surplice Silky Maxi Dress.



6. Poshare

Unlike a lot of other dress rental sites that are bridal-adjacent, Poshare has a dedicated wedding dress section.

How it works

No subscription necessary! You can rent items for four, seven, or 14 days for a flat rate. You also have the option to buy dresses at discounted rates.

Like Tulerie, each individual design is usually only available in one size.

Who it’s best for

Poshare is ideal for brides who want to rent a wedding dress without paying a subscription fee. It’s also great for those who want to shop the bridal dresses you’d find inside a bridal shop.

Sample Dresses

You can find everything from designer labels to more affordable brands on Poshare. But because you’re renting, everything’s pretty affordable, even dresses that were originally on the pricey side.

Oleg Cassini White A Line Organza Sleeved Wedding Dress

This beautiful, traditional bridal gown originally retailed for $1,058. But you can rent it from Poshare starting at $95 for four days.

Lazaro Ivory Champagne Satin Gown

$249.00 $3290.00 (92% Off)
And this wedding dress originally retailed even higher, at $3,290. Rentals start at $249, and it’s one of the select gowns that’s available in multiple sizes.

7. Janet Mandell

Janet Mandell is a place where you can rent high fashion that keeps the environment in mind. The base prices of these dresses are pricier, so rental prices are a little higher, too.

How it works

All you have to do is order a onetime rental on the website — no subscription required. Rentals are four days. If you live in Chicago or LA, you can visit a showroom to get a professional fitting and styling session first for an additional $50.

Most dresses are only available in one size.

Who it’s best for

Janet Mandell is best for brides who want to wear high fashion on their big day. It’s also good for those who don’t want to walk down the aisle with a subscription fee and those who have a slightly bigger rental budget.

Sample Dresses

You can get some seriously high-end stuff on Janet Mandell. Just check these two out.

Reem Acra Two-Piece Embellished Set


This two-piece number comes in a size 2 and is available for rent for $300 for a 4-day rental.

Oscar de la Renta Strapless Silk Tiered Ruffle Dress

Yes, you read that right. You can rent an Oscar de la Renta dress on Janet Mandell. This one is a size 6, and you can rent it for $525 for four days.
