Should I Rent, Bye or Make My 8th Grade Formal Dress

Just like most other celebratory dresses, 8th grade formal dresses can turn out to be very expensive; especially when we consider that it will be worn only one time. There is however, another couple of options available to us and this is to rent or if you have the necessary skills, make your own. I would like to give you some advice on these options and you can then decide which would work best for you.


Many girls would prefer to own their own formal dress so they have the choice at a later date to bring it out for another special occasion. This is not such a bad idea because providing your dress is of a universal type style, it could prove to be suitable for all types of occasions. If renting is your choice then let’s look at what it entails and where you can source the right dress from.

If you would like to go in person to find the best dress for you then the best place to start in your high street and telephone directory. Here you will be able to find an abundance of stores where you can spend the day trying on the dresses and (hopefully) finding the one that you have been dreaming about.

Go online where you will find some companies who will supply your formal dress by mail order. This method can work well for many, however it can sometimes become tiring when the delivered dress doesn’t fit. A recent article that I found on the website called Fashion for Rent has some great tips, including some helpful websites of rental suppliers.
