The Bridal Edit

A wedding dress is guaranteed to be one of the most expensive dresses you’ll ever buy and you will probably only wear once in your life, therefore also makes it one of the most unsustainable items in your closet. It's pretty common for the groom to rent his tux, but renting a wedding dress seems to be more unconventional even though it would be the perfect something borrowed!

Tatiana, a lawyer and Rotator who has listed her wedding dress says that "instead of spending countless hours on that dress, you should focus on planning the rest of your wedding - there is so much to think about" and you can "make your outfit very personal with your hair, make up, accessories, something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue."

It's a beautiful thing really to wear a dress someone else has lived their happiest moments in and continue to make good memories in rather than having it sit at the back of the closet gathering dust... it deserves more! Louise, who has listed her Jenny Packham dress on the app agrees, “I love this dress and could never sell it, but I also know that I’ll never wear it again either. It’s time for someone else to shimmer and sparkle up the aisle.”
