Not sure what to wear for a wedding? Armoire Style can help. This site offers a style quiz that will identify your personal aesthetic and then curate a selection of outfits via its algorithm and team of professional stylists. Prices start at $79 per month for a four-item capsule (any unused pieces roll over to the next month). You’ll get free shipping for deliveries and returns, plus over $1,000 worth of clothing in every shipment.

Rent the Runway

Rent the Runway gives its customers the option to choose between attire deliveries every week or month to add to their wardrobe. For those who simply want to rent an item for a wedding, you can opt for a one-time rental for a four- or eight-day period. You can pick out the garments of your choosing and select a delivery date of one to two days before the event. Once the items are ready for return, you can place them (plus the hangers and the plastic they came in since the Rent the Runway team recycles them) right back in the bag and tack on the prepaid shipping label.

Gwynnie Bee

For a monthly fee, you can browse, wear, return, and buy a variety of looks spanning from cocktail attire, which might be perfect for an outdoor, garden wedding, or upscale pieces that could work for a black-tie event.

Fashion Pass

If you want to keep your wedding attire long after the nuptials (or want to wear the same dress to a few events), consider using Fashion Pass. You can return the item to rent another piece, or if you fall in love with it, keep it and purchase it for a discounted rate.
