As a bride-to-be, you have a lot on your plate from choosing your dream venue, the perfect gown, floral arrangements, reception decor and menu. With a check list this long, it's sometimes easy to gloss over our favorite piece of the wedding puzzle: bridesmaid dresses.  Here at Vow To Be Chic, we can help you check “bridesmaid dresses” off that endless list to make sure your girls are effortlessly gorgeous. Below are seven recommendations for helping your bridesmaids save stylishly. 

Rent Early: We recommend renting 4 to 5 months in advance!
We want to make sure that your bridesmaids are outfitted in your dream dresses for the big day. Reserving the dress as soon as possible is key to ensuring that each girl gets to try on two sizes of her selected style. Don't have 5 months?  Contact us and we will work our magic. (We've placed lots of rush orders!) Don't forget to keep it bridal throughout your engagement. Little White Dress rentals are the perfect way to also wear white during all your bachelorette party, your pre-wedding events like engagement parties, showers, and rehearsal dinner without spending a fortune. Preview your dress now, rent it for later.

Try on dresses on for size.
Submit your measurements, and our bridal stylists will recommend sizes for your chosen dress. Once we have your measurements we send you your selected style in two sizes months before the wedding. No need for alterations or dry-cleaning, we have it covered.

Destination Weddings
Vow To Be Chic ships to the entire Continental US. Typically, we ship our bridesmaid dresses to arrive on your doorstep a week before the wedding, but we can make the timing work with your party's travel schedule. Make sure to contact us at hello@vowtobechic.com to let us know how we can help arrange your rental dates.

Coordinate Your Bridesmaids: Create your own Bridal Suite to organize with all of your bridesmaids, no matter where they are located.
Sign up with an account and log into your very own Bridal Suite where you and your bridal party can shop collaboratively and vote on your favorite dresses. Vow To Be Chic has re-defined bridesmaid dress shopping so that you can do it from the comfort of your own homes. Our expert Bridal Stylists can help make sure the dresses look beautiful together and that everyone gets the right sizes. The Bridal Suite automates invitations and reminders for each bridesmaid to alert rent her dress on time while allowing you to easily monitor the selection, rental, and shipment of your bridesmaids' dresses.

Rent or Buy: You can rent the dress for the big day or buy it to keep forever.
All dresses are sold at the suggested retail price. Your bridesmaids can determine whether they would like to buy or rent her dress during checkout. If they fall in love with their gorgeous dress and decide to buy it after renting, contact us and we will take care of it for you! (This is a great option if one of your bridesmaids require special alterations or a unique size.)


Easy Returns: Remember to send your dresses back three days after you try them on or wear them.
Each dress comes with a prepaid envelope. After the wedding, just pop the dress in the bag (keep the hangers and garment bag) and drop it off at your nearest UPS location. Remember to return within three days or less to help us ensure that all bridesmaids have the same great timely experience you do!

Be Kind: Have fun in your designer dress, but treat it nicely.
We like to think that renting from Vow is like borrowing a dress from your best friend's closet. Vow To Be Chic covers all dry cleaning costs so don't worry about normal wear and tear, we know you'll be drinking and dancing in your dress.

Renting your bridesmaid dress is an easy, affordable way to make sure you and your girls look spectacular on the big day. Vow to Be Chic is here to help you along the way!
