I’m always asked where a bridesmaid can find a beautiful dress but for a reasonable price. Buying dresses for normal occasions aren’t cheap in and of itself really. So it’s no wonder that finding a formal dress fit for a wedding without breaking the bank is challenging. Beyond buying retail from a boutique or a wedding store, one option you have is to rent a bridesmaids dress. One local company in Toronto called Rent Frock Repeat, rents designer gowns for very reasonable prices. These gowns will retail for over $400 but you can rent them for under $150! They ship you two sizes, in case you are in between sizes, and if you live in the city, you can even try them on in person. Today I’ve gathered some of my favourite nude and blush bridesmaids dresses from RfR. Take a peak!
Blushes and nudes are great for bridesmaids dresses, because it can be difficult to find the exact colour you are after in the dress and you can always accent them with more colour. If you are shopping retail, the colour has to be in season when you are shopping, and, even then, it may be challenging to find the exact shade you want in the style you like. Neutrals also allow you to bring in colour elsewhere, like in the bridesmaids bouquets.
