- When I was looking for a prom dress, I discovered a whole formal wear rental industry. I had no idea you could rent prom dresses/formal dresses and wedding dresses! Honestly, if you can find the right place, rental formal wear seems to me like the way to go. Unless you're some kind of socialite who goes to formal functions more than once or twice a year, or have extra money just lying around, why would you spend the money? There are formal wear rental stores located in most major cities (some minor cities as well) and if you're willing to put a little time into your search, you will probably be able to get away with spending way less!
- When choosing which formal wear store or rental shop to use, ask around! Don't always look for discount formal wear and rental stores. Sometimes you truly do get what you pay for. This being said, you don't always have to go for the ridiculously overpriced either. Find out the locations of some chain formal wear stores or rental stores close to you and go check them out. Try things on, find out return policies, deposit requirements for rental shops or if you're buying, find out if you can make payments or they require the whole amount up front.
- Used formal wear stores are a real option when looking for formal wear on a budget. Often, people buy formal wear for one thing and never wear it again, so most things are nearly new. Used formal wear stores usually have very high standards when it comes to accepting items, nothing that looks obviously used. Although there are used formal wear stores in some cities, online used formal wear stores may be the most accessible, just make sure the site offers returns or exchanges. Sometimes used things may be as-is deals, so that's another thing you want to know before you buy.
