RTR solves age-old wedding challenge ensuring women never have to buy another dress they won’t wear again!
New York, NY (February 20, 2018) — Rent the Runway announced today that it is doubling down on its eight years of deep experience and data dressing women for weddings with the launch of RTR Wedding Concierge, a new service making dressing for the full range of wedding events — from the engagement party, to bridal shower, to the big day — easier for the bride, her wedding party and her guests.
Since its founding in 2009, Rent the Runway has been the sustainable, cost-efficient go-to for women who don’t want to buy another formal dress they won’t wear again. A quarter of new customers are using RTR for wedding events and starting today, the company is formalizing this relationship with a brand new program that includes a full-service concierge, at-home try-on, personal styling, access to an unmatched range of styles and accessories, and more. With 75% of new users referred by a friend, Rent the Runway is now allowing brides to register their weddings with RTR to give guests access a 20% off discount code.
“Women rely on Rent the Runway during the most important moments in their lives, so it’s a natural step for us to offer a highly-personalized, full-service experience to make dressing for a wedding easier and more fun,” said Jennifer Hyman, Rent the Runway Co-Founder and CEO. “We have unprecedented data on wedding attire and trends and are thrilled to leverage what we’ve learned directly from our 8 million+ users to provide this enhanced experience.”
The RTR wedding program features:
Special Discount for Wedding Guests
Every couple that registers their wedding will receive a custom code for all wedding guests to receive 20% off. Plus the bride will receive a complimentary month of RTR Unlimited when 15+ guests use her promo code.
Access to thousands of designer dresses and accessories from the best names in the business including Badgley Mischka, DVF, Jill Jill Stuart, Kate Spade, Marchesa Notte, ML Monique Lhuillier, Nicole Miller, Trina Turk and more.
At Home Fittings
For the first time ever, RTR is offering the bride and her wedding party exclusive at-home try-on to ensure the perfect fit before big wedding events.
A dedicated member of the concierge team will help the bride with all logistics, from fittings to shipping, so she can focus on the fun.
Access to personal stylists for the full range of wedding events. Our wedding trend experts will curate on-trend and complementary bridesmaids styles for the wedding party since many brides are favoring non-matching looks, and make sure that each person is beautifully styled.
For any couple that registers their wedding with RTR, a welcome package includes exclusive perks from RTR’s favorite wedding brands including Minted, Black Tux, Oasis, and Zola (valued at more than $300).
