Borrowed Wedding is proud to announce that their highly anticipated website is officially set to launch on September 1, 2020. The first of its kind; this new online marketplace makes it simple and affordable for couples to rent or share wedding decor, anywhere in the world.
The unique platform connects couples or individuals who purchased their wedding decorations with others looking for a more cost-effective solution to rent items for their own weddings. Similar to other peer-to-peer rental marketplaces, such as Ruckify and Airbnb, Borrowed Wedding creates an opportunity for all parties involved. Those who use the site as a rental provider can expect to pay an average of 50% - 80% less than they would through a traditional rental company. At the same time, couples who choose to list and rent out their wedding decorations will have the ability to recover some, if not all, of the costs they incurred from their own weddings.
“We started Borrowed Wedding as a way to make weddings more affordable for brides, grooms, and couples everywhere,” Jenny Wegener, former wedding planner turned co-founder of Borrowed Wedding explains. “Getting married is one of life's biggest milestones and it doesn’t seem right that budget restrictions often get in the way of allowing couples to bring their wedding visions to life.”
Borrowed Wedding makes it possible for anyone to rent unique wedding packages from real couples by the day, night, week, or month. With tons of resources available to users, the platform makes it simple for couples to showcase their wedding inventory to a global audience, along with helping renters find and book these distinctive packages online or from their mobile devices. In addition to simplicity, it’s completely free for users to create profiles and list wedding packages through the platform.
“Our goal was to create an innovative, environmental- and budget-friendly solution that makes dream weddings more accessible and affordable, and with Borrowed Wedding, we are confident we will be able to deliver on that concept,” adds co-founder, Stephanie Dickson. Given the uncertainty surrounding large gatherings, Borrowed Wedding also creates a unique opportunity for couples who have had to postpone their weddings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After postponing her own wedding in April, Dickson adds, “We hope those who already bought their decorations will see this as an opportunity to support the community by listing them as a way to help others save hundreds, if not thousands, on the cost of their rentals.”
Adding to the excitement surrounding the launch, Borrowed Wedding will give away a Styled Photoshoot valued at $1,000 to one lucky couple on September 1. To enter to win, and for full contest details register online at www.borrowedwedding.com and follow @borrowedwedding on Instagram.
