The Best Occasion Wear To Rent This Wedding Season

‘Tis the season of the big blow out wedding, and not only are our diaries feeling it, our wallets are too. The search for a wedding guest outfit can be mega fun, but also a stressful and expensive experience — especially with the sheer amount of weddings happening this time of year. Fortunately, renting occasion wear for weddings has never been easier.

The fashion rental industry has seen a huge boom in the last few years, offering users the chance to rent a garment for as little as £5 a day. With peer-to-peer apps like By Rotation and HURR quickly becoming household names across the UK, other stylist-based and hybrid services have gotten popular, too, including Front Row, Hirestreet and Rotaro.

And while the savings might feel like the main draw, clothing rental also contributes to sustainable circularity in the fashion space. Plus, it works great for those wanting to try something new for an occasion, without having to make a lifelong purchase.

To take a look at some of the best dresses to rent this wedding season, scroll through the slideshow ahead.
