Think bridal and it's hard to imagine the sustainability factor. It's a fleeting moment that only lasts for a few hours and after the party, there is little to cherish but the pictures and the video. That's where Style The Aisle and Happily Ever Borrowed come into the picture. Imagine your bridesmaid's surprise when you tell them they can rent their dress and accessories instead of spending a fortune on something they'll never wear again! These two green companies rallied together to present a new collection of rentable items for your bridal party. Not only are they keeping it green, but they're keeping you chic as well!
Style the Aisle was created to make the bridesmaid dress experience fun and stress free. You shouldn’t have to compromise fashion and elegance on your wedding day. We offer a curated collection of high quality, designer dresses to brides and their maids – as rentals. You’ve planned the wedding and you should have the bridesmaid dress that you envision. After all, a designer bridesmaid dress is the perfect accessory for a designer wedding gown.
Seriously folks, I wouldn't mind eventually owning any one of these lovely dresses and baubles. I can think of a few places to rewear: Art openings, cocktail party, wedding guest, out to dinner, baby and bridal shower, any afternoon or evening celebration . . . .Love to hear where you'd wear one of these gems....
I initially created this space for my clients. Eventually brides looking for that touch of wow found their way here. Draping and playing with fabric started some twenty years back when I did a three-year stint as a bridal fabrics buyer. After that I opened Bridal Alternatives, a custom design studio and ever since have had the opportunity of working with brides who want that extraordinary one-of-a-kind dress. I'm in love with fashion history and re-invention of the past.
Other connections to fashion? I’ve been a columnist for San Francisco Art and Fashion News and have a weekly fashion buzz on One Wed Blog. I founded The Design Project of San Francisco, a networking organization of fashion professionals collaborating their skills and talents on projects. I’m currently working on a book called—you guessed it—'Bride Chic', all about that white gown and very special designer/client relationship. I live with my husband Edgar and Chihuahua Piccalina in Marin County California.
