How Does Renting a Gown Actually Work?

When you have decided that renting gowns is the best option for yourself, here are the next steps:

1) Finding The Right Bridal Boutique

Your budget, personality, and style will help you identify and select the right bridal shop for you.

You can identify bridal shops that are within a certain price range using your budget. Then, based on your style preference to further narrow the list down.

However, it is also important to take into account the quality of the gowns at the shops. A high-quality gown can easily be identified by how it hugs your body. A good internal gown structure and cutting can do wonders for you as it will flatter your body and emphasize your best features. In short, do not fixate on the small price difference so that you don’t compromise looking your best on your big day.

Gowns originating from Europe are often of higher quality due to their long history of experience in gown design. Naturally Europeans gowns are more detailed in fabric usage and the placement of the appliques. While designing their gowns, they take into consideration every little detail in order to fit the body perfectly, it's all about balancing the body.

It is not uncommon that some brides may have unbalanced bodies such as shorter torso and longer legs or vice versa. Therefore, it is important to find gowns that emphasise your best qualities. European gowns, for instance, are designed to compliment a bride's imperfect parts, allowing her to look and feel her best.

2) Book Your First Appointment

After choosing your bridal shop, it’s time to book a consultation appointment.

During this appointment, you can then discuss with a consultant to help you identify your ‘needs & wants’!

Your consultants will also help you find the right styles and cuttings of gowns that suits you. 

This appointment will give you a feel of the quality and styles of the gowns that the shop carries. Feeling and seeing the gown in real life is very different from seeing it in photos only.

At Luna Bianca, you will get to try 3 to 8 gowns (depending on the type of appointment you book) to find which style and cut suits you.

3) Package Signing

After your consultation, if you like what you see and know that the shop is the right shop for you, it is then time to sign the package! It is also recommended to sign up with a bridal shop that can offer you multiple services such as gown rentals, photography, videography, and makeup if being cost-effective is a priority to you.

4) Gown Selection

After signing, it is time to select your gown. This Gown selection appointment will usually take place about 4-6 months before your wedding day. You will get to try as many gowns as needed to find the right one for you. Take your time, enjoy the process, and most importantly, keep an open mind.

5) Fitting Day

About 1 - 2 weeks before your wedding, you will get to do your fitting. This is when the gown has already been altered to your size. However, it is quite common for brides to gain or lose some weight between the selection appointment and the fitting day. Hence, this fitting day will also serve as a session to see if we need to alter the gown any further. 

During your fitting, Luna’s experienced coordinators will make sure that you feel comfortable beautiful, and confident and that your gown fits you like a glove. 

6) Collection Day

After making sure that the gown fits perfectly, you will usually collect your gown one day before your big day, which is a standard practice, and it is off to get yourself some beauty sleep!

7) Wedding Day

Now that you are wearing the wedding gown of your dreams. It is time to celebrate and enjoy your time with your family, friends, and most importantly, your other half!

8) Return Day

After your glorious wedding, you can return the gown the following day to your bridal shop. Now your wedding day is complete, it is now time to relax and be off to your Honeymoon!
