Another Rent the Runway Success at a Great Wedding

Last month I rented this Zac Posen dress for my friends’ wedding:

Rent the Runway wedding

No Turning Back dress |  Brighthouse Baubles necklace | Simply Vera shoes (similar here)

It fit perfectly except for the straps – they kept sliding off my shoulders. Since I had read the reviews on Rent the Runway before ordering the dress, I knew this was common a issue so I made sure to add some double-sided tape to keep them in place. Everything else about the dress was great. The material was heavy so it hung nicely and never wrinkled and there were pockets! Bonus: it only cost $34.99 to rent.

I wore this dress

to their wedding

and had a blast

The last two photos in this post are by Matt Miller of Diamond Eyes – an awesome, Atlanta-based wedding photographer.

Have you tried Rent the Runway? I’ve used the website twice before (here and here) and have always been pleased with the service. Feel free to leave a comment if you want more details on how it works.

Here’s to a great weekend!

Dearest Lar,

I’m still kind of in shock that you left to go back to Scotland today. I was getting so used to having you around – and it felt so right!

At this very moment, you’re flying over Ireland – I’ve been tracking your flight this whole time. Creepy? Perhaps, but it makes me feel closer to you to know exactly where you/your plane are/is. You’ll be landing in Amsterdam in less than two hours with plenty of time to catch your flight to Edinburgh. I wish I was on the flight with you! I find it so strange that we’ve travelled back and forth between the states and Europe so much in the past few years and haven’t flown together once!

You know I’ll be missing you like crazy, but I’m so glad you’ll be going back to Scotland to make a full recovery. You’ve been through so much this past month, but I really believe that by this time next month, it’ll feel like a distant dream. Okay, “dream” sounds way too pleasant, but you know what I mean.

Skype you this weekend!

xoxo, Cath

    I wish I could have kept it too, but to be honest, I don’t have that many occasions where I could wear it :) That’s why Rent the Runway is awesome!

    HI Kitcath!!!

    I’m in shock too: shock that you aren’t by my side, shock at the gray buildings, shock at how tiny (aka not XL American-sized) our flat is, shock at waking up at 3 am east coast time and it’s sunny here!

    I miss you so much already and I seriously can’t think about it or else I turn into a soppy big mess and poor Matteo has already had to put up with so much from me.

    But enough about moi — YOU, you! Look gawgeous, Cath! Holy schmoly smokies! That colour is perfect and the fit is amazing on you. I had seen the Matt Miller (amazing) wedding pics but not the first few — you a model!

    I can’t wait to skype with you tomorrow. I hope you are having fun at your conference today!!!

    LOVE YOU!!!!!

    Awwww, thanks Lar! Troy took the first few pics. The dress actually fit tighter than I was anticipating. All the reviews said that it ran big. I didn’t find that to be the case so maybe I’m in denial about my true size ;)

    Loved skyping with you even though it’s not nearly as great as being in the same room as you.

    Hope you’re having a great week back to the grindstone.

    Skype this weekend?!
    xoxo, Cath

    Cath, that dress is so made for you! I contemplated Rent the Runway a while back when I had to go to a black tie wedding. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time to get the dress I wanted :( But I definitely want to try it!

    Your photos also look so great! Especially that candid dancing photo! <3

    Thanks Laura! Rent the Runway definitely takes some planning ahead. Black tie weddings are the hardest! I have another wedding coming up in May that will require another rental for sure!
