And the Bride Wore White

This post continues Bachelorette Week on Sincerely, Jennie. Read Monday’s post for the story on my unexpected Charleston trip, and Friday’s post about a special coworker bachelorette in Chicago.

I never thought I’d be that girl searching for every white dress or “bride” T-shirt once I got engaged. But as my bridal calendar started to fill up, I found myself also filling up online shopping carts with those things. Truly, I don’t have a lot of opportunities in life to wear a white dress (the last time I think I had one was for college graduation), so I was excited to wear white to signify that I was a bride-to-be. I used Rent the Runway Unlimited so that I could have access to many white dresses and bridal accessories. Paying a flat fee per month I thought I’d have a rotating closet, and not several white dresses hanging in my closet that I wouldn’t wear again. (For those who don’t use Rent the Runway, scroll to the bottom to see my round up of white dresses for bachelorette party events.)

Throughout my engagement I found myself using the Unlimited program differently than I’d planned. For two of my bridal showers I ended up choosing pink dresses. I chose those simply because pink is my signature color and the style of the dresses suited me better. I only found one white dress on the site that ended up being a great white dress for bachelorette party activities in Charleston. In the end, Unlimited came in handy because of their clutches fit for a bride, like this Kate Spade clutch that I would only ever carry during an engagement, and jewelry options for my wedding. Can’t wait to share wedding photos so you see what I rented for the big day!

In the end, I did purchase a white dress for my reception party dress because I wanted the option to alter it if needed. (Luckily, there was no need and it was a really affordable price for the party!) Friends got me fun T-shirts or accessories for a bride, and I purchased a few when I saw them on sale. I decided that I would be engaged for one fun year of my life, and I wanted to enjoy it by wearing any silly graphic T-shirts I wanted! Renting was an option I was happy to have at my fingertips, but I also liked purchasing some items for keeps.

    Rent the Runway Unlimited is SUCH a good idea when you have busy schedule (like wedding events!) packed into a known timeframe. And you look so pretty here in white!
