Rent Wedding Outfits For As Low As INR 2,000 With These 4 Websites
With the increasing number of Indian wedding functions, there's always a fear of repeating an outfit way too many times. Plus, buying multiple outfits with a heavy price tag is not the most economical option in the world. Which is why we love the idea of renting wedding dresses!
These days, you can rent everything from bridal lehengas, light lehengas and dhoti pants to gorgeous gowns and even saris for just 10–15% of the MRP! While there are plenty of websites you can rent them from, we picked out the best and are giving you the lowdown on each of them.
Basics About Renting Wedding Dresses Online:
- Will I Get A Good Fit? All wedding outfit rental websites take your measurements to give you a good fit.
- Can I Try The Outfit? Trials at home cost extra (between INR 200–500), except for Flyrobe (free trial).
- Hygiene: All of them dry-clean and steam press the outfit before delivery.
- Payment & Security Deposit: Can be made online, and about half of them offer COD option. All charge security deposits (except Liberent) — typically equal to the rent cost.

The Clothing Rental
The Clothing Rental is a surprisingly good (albeit expensive) find. While Indianwear options are limited, they’re pretty. They stock very nice saris, trendy Indo-western gowns, lehengas and jewellery. Overall, they are one of the few places that stock the latest trends. Online payment only, no COD; delivery charges extra.

We found a mint dhoti drape Anarkali for INR 3k. Gowns, for your reception or a white wedding, cost INR 10k. Kundan earrings (INR 1k rent) and jewellery sets (upto INR 3,500) are also worth renting from here.
