This just in: Rent the Runway's new Bridal division will launch January 18th. The new site will cater to bridesmaids—yes, ladies, now you can rent your bridesmaid dress instead of shelling out a whole bunch of cash on something you'll probably never wear again! Exclusive collections for the site have been designed by Badgley Mischka, Nicole Miller, and Robert Rodriguez. The site will also stock non-exclusives from labels such as Shoshanna and Calypso. Bridesmaid dress rentals will start at $65, which includes a one-day fitting in addition to an eight-day rental period. The site will also rent wedding accessories (jewelry, handbags) from $10.
