"I shared my wedding dress with a Bride"

Renting your dress is the answer to a wedding on a budget! 💍 Meet Rotator @amberrosewilson, who listed her wedding dress on the By Rotation app. We spoke with her about the reasons why she decided to list her dress and her experience sharing it with a fellow Rotator.

The By Rotation app has bridal dresses from Vivienne Westwood to Vera Wang, sequins to feathers, there is something for everyone in the Something Borrowed Edit.

Rent Amber's Pronovias Wedding Dress

How did it feel to share your treasured item with Lorraine on her wedding day? 💍
"It felt special to share it with Lorraine. She was so thrilled to be able to wear a Pronovias dress for a fraction of the price of buying it new. It fit her perfectly - so I think it was meant to be … for both of us! She was kind enough to bring me a slice of her wedding cake when she dropped the dress back off with me which was so kind."

Why did you decide to list your wedding dress on the app? 🕊
"It seemed so wasteful to only get one day's wear out of such a beautiful dress! If it could be a part of someone else’s special day and I could make a bit of extra money out of it then it seemed like a no-brainer."

Tell us a little bit more about your wedding day and where you got married? 💒
"We got married close to where we both grew up at the seaside. I even managed to stop for ice cream on the beach with my maid of honour before the ceremony. The reception was at Sledmere Barn - my family has farming ties so it felt fitting! It was an April wedding so a little cold but we are from the North so we don’t really feel the cold."

"I managed to have a dress change in the evening - I donated my evening dress to the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation who organise and fund weddings for terminally ill people in the UK."
