Anyone hiring a dress?

Just thinking how i can stretch my budget and my cousin mentioned that she hired her stunning dress a few years ago. Not sure what i feel about doing that but does seem sensible in terms of getting a much more expensive dress than could afford to buy. Anyone else thinking about it???

    IWe are on a tight budget and I've also thought about hiring but struggling to find shops in the preston area that do. I've seen an absolutely gorgeous tiara for sale at £30 in the charity shop but am I just being a cheap skate!
  • I live In Newcastle and I couldn't find places round here that do it either (although I didn't look very hard). Apparently dresses end up getting so dirty/get grass stains etc it ends up really expensive for the company, so most places have stopped doing it.

    Ellie- go get the tiara TOMORROW! It's not being a cheap skate- it's being a bargain hunter! I need a brooch for the sash on my dress- I bought one in the market for £1 yesterday!
  • Sounds like others are in the same boat as me...havent really found anywhere to hire from, just wondering if it was possible! Definately buy the tiara ellie - not cheapskate at all, what a great find i feel inspired to hit the charity shops! Am thinking might have to buy with the aim of selling afterwards if cant hire?! Will have another look around though. I really want a jenny packham style 'floaty' dress i think..... good luck with your hunting!
