Sustainable Solutions: Hire Bridesmaids Dresses

Something Borrowed Rewritten Brooklyn

How many times have you had to buy a specific bridesmaid dress for a wedding, only for it to sit and collect dust in your closet? Chances are, it wasn't your colour or cut, or you can't find a way to practically incorporate it into your wardrobe!

After creating The Green Collection, we realised the importance of sustainability and eco-consciousness - not only in our collections, but also in our lifestyle. That's why we've found an amazing solution to the bridesmaid dress nightmare that happens with every RSVP: just hire your bridesmaid dress! Renting or hiring a dress is not only a more sustainable option, but most likely you'll be saving tons of money!

I've found a great selection of sites that you can hire bridesmaids dresses from and have included some pieces from each to inspire you! Whether the dress code is 'black tie' or 'come-as-you-are', we're sure you'll find some incredible and rentable bridesmaid dress options for your upcoming RSVPs.

With over 150 different designers, Girl Meets Dress is a great site to use to hire a bridesmaid dress! With insane hire deals, you're able to rent designer brands at a fraction of retail cost. There is no need to register- all you have to do is browse for a dress and choose whether you want to hire the dress for 2 or 7 nights! You are able to try on 1-3 dresses, and when you return the dresses you will receive a refund for every unworn item. All garments are professionally dry-cleaned and shipping and returns are free. Girl Meets Dress has a showroom in London (SW6) where you can go and try on dresses. Email to book an appointment.

We are LOVING Something Borrowed's selection of bridesmaids dresses. It's super easy to shop their website as well. Just browse their collections, add to bag and checkout to reserve your favourite pieces! If you would like to try on pieces before you rent them, you are able to purchase a 4-day home try-on service, with the cost redeemable against any future confirmed rentals! Repack your worn dress into the reusable package along with the pre-paid return label and drop off to your local post office. Something Borrowed takes care of all the cleaning for you, making it a super simple rental process.

Hirestreet is an amazing site that has such a variety of pieces to rent, but we're loving their bridesmaid dress selection! To shop on Hirestreet, once you're done browsing and you have found something you love (which won't take long!), select your size, rental period (from 4 to 30 days) and delivery date then add to bag. When your pieces arrive, try them on and only remove the ribbon attached once you have decided to wear something. Then after you wear your pieces, all you have to do is place them inside the returns bag and seal it. You do not need to wash any of the clothes - Hirestreet does that for you!
