Prom Prep: To Rent or Not To Rent?

Fancy a designer dress for a high-street price tag? Then dress rental could be for you!

With prom season just around the corner, the rental business is booming. So are you considering renting your prom dress?

Below, I’ve listed my five favourite (reliable) dress rental websites. The way that each website works differs slightly, and it’s important that you familiarise yourself with the terms and conditions before you rent. Slipping up on one of the rules could mean having to pay full-price for a designer dress – and that would not be fun!

So, if you’ve found yourself battling between a low budget and expensive taste, check out the websites below and see what you think!

Searching for that perfect prom dress? Don’t know where to start? Well, good news, ladies – you’ve come to the right place!

My prom was last year and, I must admit, dress hunting was a real challenge. There are hundreds of websites to trawl through (not to mention hundreds of scam websites!) and some of the price tags that I stumbled across genuinely made my eyes burn.

I appreciate that dress shopping can be a time-consuming task, so I’ve attempted to make things a little easier for you. Below is a list of my favourite (reliable) websites that stock prom dresses*. I’ve listed them in order of price range (low to high), so that you can easily find the websites that meet your budget (and avoid the ones that don’t).

Welcome to Wonderland

Hello world!

Nice to meet you. I’m Talia – a self-confessed crazy cat lady from South Wales.

I’m 18, I’m a creative writing student… and when I’m not spending my time daydreaming, you can probably find me crying over fictional characters or watching YouTube videos of kittens.

I’ve been wanting to take up blogging for a while now, but my final push didn’t come until quite recently. One of my university assessments actually requires me to write a blog post, so I’ve decided to take it as a sign from the heavens and finally set up my own blog. (First post: check!)

Come and join me on this little adventure. It’ll be fun – I promise!

Talk to you soon!
