A the dilemma of destination weddings: buy or rent your wedding dress

TO BRING OR TO RENT
YOUR WEDDING OUTFITS?

Trip planning

Should you buy it and bring it with you, or is renting a local gown the way to go? Let's weigh the pros and cons of each option.

BUYING YOUR WEDDING DRESS AND BRINGING WITH YOU TO PARIS:

Pros:

1. Personal Touch: Buying your wedding dress allows you to choose a gown that perfectly reflects your style and preferences.

2. Familiarity: You already know how your dress fits and feels, reducing the risk of any unexpected surprises on your big day.

3. Sentimental Value: The dress becomes a cherished keepsake, a tangible memory of your special day.

 

Cons:

1. Travel Hassle: Carrying a wedding dress can be cumbersome, and there's always a risk of it getting damaged during transit.

2. Cost: Purchasing a wedding dress can be more expensive upfront compared to renting.

RENTING YOUR WEDDING DRESS:

Pros:

1. Convenience: No need to worry about transporting a delicate dress; simply pick it up at your destination.

2. Cost-Effective: Renting can be a more budget-friendly option, especially for designer dresses you might not wear again.

 

Cons:

1. Limited Options: You might have fewer choices compared to buying, limiting your ability to find the perfect dress. Plus, you will be thinking about that all the time and constantly stressing.

2. Sizing Issues: Alterations might be necessary, and last-minute adjustments could be stressful. And what if you don't find anything that you like or that fits you perfectly?

3. Quality Concerns: Depending on the rental service, the quality of the dress may vary.

4. Overall stress. And what if you stain the dress during the photoshoot and they charge a giant cleaning fee? And what if you rip it?

 

While renting may seem convenient, the risk factor can't be ignored. Imagine arriving at your destination only to find that the rented dress doesn't meet your expectations.

 

In conclusion, we recommend bringing your own dress and suit unless you know a really good company that rents. Though buying may involve some challenges, the peace of mind and personalized experience make it a safer bet.
