Shopping for your wedding dress is one of the most exciting events in your life. Whether you’re with your mother and your bridesmaids, or clicking around online- it can be so much fun! But if you’re having trouble selecting or don’t want to deal with pushy salespeople- it can quickly turn into a stress-fest. That’s why we’re so thrilled to share this incredible program by designer Kirstie Kelly.

Kirstie launched an innovative dress lending service last year, aptly named “Borrow Me.” Borrow Me allows brides all across the country to try on Kirstie Kelly dresses in the comfort of their own home! The concept is pretty straightforward- select the dress(es) you’re interested in, and send Kirstie’s team your measurements. They’ll send the gowns in your size right to your doorway for $35/dress, which covers the shipping. Once you receive the dress, you’ve got 48 hours before it needs to be sent back.  You can try them on in the privacy of your own home, avoiding distractions or conflicting opinions. OR, we say invite your girls over and make a party out of it! Either way, you get more time to make your decision hopefully will end the weekend with your dream dress!

We are such big fans of this concept- and it doesn’t hurt that Kirstie’s gowns are stunning. We’ve shared our favorites from the 2013 collection- one of which you may recognize from our recent cover shoot. We’re curious- are you as in love with this “Borrow Me” concept as we are, or do you prefer the traditional shopping process?
