Rent the Runway

Monday, June 2, 2014

This past weekend was a whirlwind...I'm starting to sound like a broken record. I guess I just need to get used to the fact that every weekend we are busy! It's a good busy with all (mostly) fun things. Friday night we attended M's cousin's wedding and left B at my parents house. Best. Decision. Ever.

Bringing a toddler to anyone's wedding is fun for about 5 minutes. They are cute twirling around on the dance floor and that's about it. I was wearing a floor length sequined gown (not ideal for toddler hip holding) and M had on a tux so we certainly weren't dressed for a night out with her. Without her we were able to eat our meal at a normal pace versus our usual "scarf it down method." We spun around on the dance floor (much to Matt's demise) and we even got to wait around for cake to be served! My favorite, of course. :)
so happy!

the beautiful newlyweds
I was SO excited to attend this wedding not only because we were excited for the bride and groom but because I was in love with my dress! Materialistic, yes. Sue me.

I ended up renting my gown because really how often do you need a floor length sequined gown? Plus, if I ever wore it to another event people would remember it. And I'm not one to double dip. ;)

I had a great experience with Rent the Runway and would totally do it again! They sent me two dress sizes and have a TON of reviews from people who have worn the same dress online. They detail their height, weight, and bust size and how the dress size fit for them. So easy! I can't wait till my next fancy event!

  6. I've heard of RTR and I think it's a genius idea! Especially for something like a formal wedding, where, you're right, you'll never really need to wear that dress again.
