I love attending weddings, even with all the planning it takes to get ready. I’ve been to many fun weddings: two on a mountain top, one on a beach, and several in other beautiful venues. The dress code for these weddings has varied, but I’ve always found the perfect outfit. In addition, I enjoy the challenge of shopping for wedding outfits.
I’ve used Rent the Runway several times and found some of my favorite looks. The first few times I used Rent the Runway, I used the event rental option and rented a dress or a dress with jewelry. I purchased an RTR membership in 2019 and used my membership to rent items for the last two weddings I attended. I rented a dress, purse, and necklace for the December wedding in Florida.
Here’s my dress from the November black tie optional wedding in Charleston.
