We’ve all been there… searching for the perfect dress to attend a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, wedding or engagement party… staring at a closet full of clothes with nothing to wear. Ugh. I’m getting anxious just thinking about it.
If only you could afford that fab designer dress you’ve been crazy over right? Well now you can – without breaking your bank in the process. Yep. It’s true! Rent the Runway allows you access to your dream wardrobe for all of life’s special occasions – at 90% off retail prices. Choose from over 95 designers most of which you couldn’t afford – until now.
Here’s how it works. Visit the site. Enter in your event date, size and zip code you’d like your item sent to. Then browse through the hundreds of amazing designer looks available until you find the perfect ensemble. They even have accessories! You can rent a second look for only $25 more and they’ll even throw in an additional size for free so you never have to worry about something not fitting. Awesome.
You’re guaranteed to receive your item by the date you specify and will have it for three days. Then when it’s time return it just pop it in the mail with the prepaid shipping envelope provided with your purchase. Doesn’t get much easier than that.
Oh, and you don’t have to worry about accidental damages. For only $5 you can purchase insurance on your item so no matter what happens – spills, broken zippers, rips etc; you’re covered. Kiss your crazy closet moments goodbye. Now you can be confident you’ll have something amazing to wear and know it’s not going to cost a fortune. All you have to worry about is looking fabulous and having fun. Yay!
Happy weekend everyone!!

Today I’m excited to share this gorgeous outdoor wedding shot in Portland, Oregon by the incredibly talented Jill Thomas. I love the sense of whimsy the vineyard shots portray. And just wait til you see the bridesmaids dresses…
Yup. Aren’t they adorable?
The bride added a touch of sparkle to her reception wardrobe with these killer shoes by Stewart Weitzman.
This vineyard setting is absolutely gorgeous!
I am seriously in love with these dresses. Each one is so fun and unique. By allowing each maid to chose her dress, shoes and accessories, combined with the neutral cream colored bouquets, the bride creates a simple and very pretty color palette.
Congratulations Liz and Corey! Thanks for sharing these images with us Jill – they are absolutely gorgeous!

Love in the windy city! Take a look at this adorable engagement session shot in Chicago by the fabulous Amanda Wilcher. The light in these images is just gorgeous. And Amanda must have done some serious scouting because these locations are a photographer’s dream. Clearly worthy of a feature in any major wedding magazine… enjoy!
How cute is this couple? And these colors – stunning.
A kiss under the bridge. Aww. Love this shot.
I still have no idea what the background is in the bottom two images but it creates quite a striking composition don’t you think?
I love how they incorporated their dog into the session. He’s so handsome and it’s clear the joy he brings to their lives.
Thanks to Amanda for sharing these beautiful images with us. And congratulations Sam and Andy – have an amazing time at your wedding!
