The Wedding Day!

If you follow my blog you know that a few weeks ago I embarked on a journey to answer the question, "Can you look like a million bucks without spending a million".   I had my girlfriends wedding coming up in La Jolla, Ca.  I was super busy and did not have time to go shopping for a dress; I leaned on rent the to help me out.  I rented a designer gown for $100.  I crossed my fingers and hoped that all would be well.  Throughout my journey anxiety of renting a dress subsided when I got my order confirmation, my dress in two sizes (they looked, smelt, and felt new), and the dress fit.  To purchase this dress, which I would probably never wear again, is around $595.  By renting the dress I only spent $100.  Now that the wedding is over all I have to do is return the dress.

So, can you look like a million without spending a million... the answer, Yes!  With rent the runway you can!

Here are some other fun pictures from the Wedding.  Enjoy!


  1. Love your blog. What a great idea to rent a dress for the special occasion. It looked beautiful too.....I wish I lived by the water like that....Such an awesome setting!!

  2. That dress looks awesome! What a great idea!

  3. I understand that the idea is good. But still there remains a fantasy in every bride's mind to wear a new dress. But your idea is still rocking if one is planning a budget wedding, and I am sure most brides will agree that budget is an important factor.
