Even with the best intentions, even when you choose a dress for your bridesmaids that is absolutely beautiful, even then there’s no guarantee your girls will wear it again. Which usually means they’ve spent a chunk of change on something they’ll only wear once. Why not make it easier on everyone, and rent bridesmaid dresses from Style the Aisle!

Style the Aisle was founded by two friends who, as brides, struggled to find affordable, fashionable dresses that their girls could wear again, and ended up with dresses that were almost perfect, but not quite. To help other brides avoid the same challenge, they’ve worked closely with top bridesmaid dress designers to curate a collection of the brands’ most loved styles and colors, available to rent at 1/3 the purchase price.

I think their LulaKate styles are my personal favorites – so stylish and preppy! They also offer dresses from Joanna August, Swoon, Love,Yu, and Kirribilla, all in the loveliest, most flattering styles. Create an account to see the current collection!

Before committing to a dress, you can order a 3 day trial session months before the wedding, where you can see dresses in person and make sure your bridesmaids are getting the right size. Once you’ve decided on a style and a size, place your rental order, and the dress will arrive a week before the wedding, dry-cleaned and steamed, with a pre-paid bag for hassle free returns.

Wondering about the giveaway? I thought so! Style the Aisle is giving three Snippet & Ink readers FREE rentals for up to six bridesmaids, plus a 3-day in-home trial session (estimated value up to $930, depending on dress chosen and number of bridesmaids). Just leave a comment on this post telling us why you want to rent dresses from Style the Aisle for your bridesmaids.

Contest begins Monday, January 27, 2014 at 9:30AM PST, and ends Friday, January 31, 2014 at 11:59PM PST. Winners will be selected by Snippet & Ink, and notified by email. Please note: winners must live in the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec).

Official contest rules.

And even if you don’t win, you can get a free 3-day in-home trial of three dresses when you use the code PERFECTFIT at checkout. Expires March 1, 2014.

    I love Style the Aisle and all the dress options, I would absolutely love to treat all my bridesmaids to free dresses. We are planning a gorgeous wedding in Carmel and trying to keep the costs low for our guests and wedding party and this would be an amazing gift!

    No one wants another expensive dress in their closet gathering dust! This is such a fantastic idea- allows your bridesmaids to look great and feel comfortable without breaking the bank. Also, the idea of renting and re-using dresses is great for eco-friendly brides and bridesmaids!

    Having been a bridesmaid several times, nothing would make me happier as a bride than to spare my bridesmaids any expense or annoyance of buying a dress they won’t wear again! Such a wonderful idea!

    The dresses are gorgeous and it would be so easy for the ladies in my bridal party. I’ve got a closet full of bridesmaids dresses I’ll never wear again so am hesitant to ask my ladies to buy something–but it would be fun to have a cohesive look, so it seems like Style the Aisle would be perfect! Thanks!

    I am lucky to have four beautiful bridesmaids with four very different senses of style. They are more than happy to wear anything I’d ask them to, but I just know that no matter what we go for, someone’s dress will end up unworn in the back of their closet! Style the Aisle will make it easy for me to get the look we all want for my wedding and no guilt about dresses only worn once.

    It would be so convenient it be able to rent bridesmaids dresses! I was originally going to let them pick out their own but none of them have found dresses yet so this would alleviate some stress! Awesome giveaway :)

    This is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a LONG time! I had no idea this even existed. Since my bridesmaids and I just graduated from college this would make the wedding even BETTER! I have been that bridesmaid that paid a ton for a dress that did not even fit my body type and could never be worn again. This is a great giveaway! Good Luck ladies & Cheers to beautiful bridesmaids!!

    I would love to be able to give my bridesmaids free dresses as several of them will already be paying to travel out of state to my wedding – love this idea as “you can totally wear it again” never happens!!

    The most important thing about a wedding is having your loved ones with you on your special day. So I hope to keep costs down for my bridesmaids and focus on having a great time!

    I love the idea of being able to treat my bridesmaids to dresses as lovely as they are and what a fabulous benefit that they get a trial period to make sure that they’ll feel beautiful and comfortable as we celebrate together.

    Wow!!! What an amazing concept. I am getting married in November and have already been searching high and low for beautiful, affordable bridesmaid gowns that will make these important women look and feel beautiful! This would be an amazing gift for all of us.

    I would love to win this giveaway simply because this would be such a treat for my bridesmaids! Wedding expenses add up so quickly, and my bridesmaids are all at an age where everyone seems to be getting married (mid-twenties). Because of this, many of my bridesmaids are in additional weddings this year. I would love to relieve some of the stress by eliminating the dress expense for them and allowing them to feel gorgeous in such incredible gowns!

    I’ve been looking at bridesmaid dresses for my party as I have 2 bridesmaids in California, 1 in Washington, 1 in Idaho, and 1 in South Korea. They all have different body types and trying on dresses is literally impossible. Thought renting would be a great idea, but all the other sites that rent dresses don’t have a wide enough variety of styles; I’m over the strapless plain knee length looks! It would be so awesome to win this so that we can try on different dresses, and get a look together that is unique and polished for my big day!

    I would love to win! Style the Aisle is so perfect for my vision for my bridesmaids. I don’t want my ‘maids to to have to wear something they don’t like or that breaks their budget, so I’ve given them a color swatch and have told them to find their own. With Style the Aisle they all could find the perfect dress!

    These are so beautiful! I would love to use StyletheAisle for my bridesmaids – i love the idea of renting a gorgeous dress to help my friends look their best without having to buy a dress they’ll never wear again! I hope to make the bridal party as comfortable as possible, and lessen the cost for them as well :)

    I love Style The Aisle! This would be perfect because I want amazing dresses, but don’t want to ask my bridesmaids to spend a fortune. I want my wedding to be fun, not stressful for others because of money. I’ve been in enough weddings to know that no one is wearing their bridemaid dress again :) I would LOVE to win this for my friends!

    What a great idea you girls started. My soon to be sister-in-law would love to see us in some of these amazing dresses. Her wedding is in the summer and the colors are coral, sea foam, and gray. It’ll be beautiful! Would love to showcase these dresses.

    I love this idea so much. I just got engaged a little over a week ago, and have been slightly overwhelmed by all of the planning. To have the bridesmaid dresses taken care of through a great site like Style the Aisle–I would be so thankful to have one important detail crossed off my list!
