The uncertainty that virtually every bride feels about whether to buy or hire a wedding dress goes way back in terms of trying to stick to outdated traditions. However, hiring a wedding dress has become a growing trend, especially when you consider incomes that have been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, giving every bride the opportunity to wear a designer wedding dress as she sashays down the aisle on the way to her Prince Charming!
It’s not just about whether or not you have the budget to buy a wedding dress. It’s also about whether you want to consider packing it away in the hope that the daughter you may have one day will want to wear your wedding dress. If you end up having sons, it’s going to be a moot point, to say the least!
The future of your wedding dress is your choice, and despite constant changes to constantly evolving styles of wedding dresses hitting the runways every season, if you do decide to buy the dress, whether to keep for sentimental reasons, or to pass on to a daughter or future daughter-in-law, you have every right to stick to your guns and do it your way!
In fact, if you do one day have a daughter who wants to wear your wedding dress, you two will have a lot of fun changing up finishing touches, adding alterations that will ultimately express some parts of you and some of her to make the dress entirely unique to your collaboration. But that’s for the future of course!
On the other hand, Hiring a designer wedding dress in Cape Town from Ever After Bridal does give you a little more room in the budget for the perfect wedding you’ve always dreamed of, or perhaps contribute to an extra special honeymoon to create memories that last long after the wedding dress has been returned!
