Affordable Engagement Session Tips

Wedding Tips

The resounding answer is yes.

In the past, I have seen it happen time and time again. Clients will ask me advice on what to wear to their engagement session, I’ll offer some classy options such as a dress, and they automatically rule it out because they think it’ll be too expensive!

However recently, I have found a solution to this little problem of ours. Rent The Runway allows you to rent dresses for as low as $35 for a few days to wear to your engagement session and look super hot as you do it! The best part? You won’t spend a fortune on an outfit you will likely never wear again that sits in the bottom of your closet. OH! And guess what else is going to make your day even better!! There’s a Rent The Runway near you now in Georgetown!! AHH!!!

The misunderstandings in the past have been that it is impossible to rock a gorgeous dress for cheap. Because of this, so many people will spend well over $100 on an ensemble and still think it’s cheaper than a dress! At that, if you can get a cute blouse, pants, shoes, and accessories for under $100, I applaud you. 🙂

If you want to avoid that route, you can find an array of gorgeous dresses like these below for anywhere between $35-$100! How crazy is that?!

With all of that being said, I hope this helps solve your issue of how to look AMAZING for cheap at your engagement session coming up soon!! 🙂Images VIA Rent The Runway
