Vera Wang Wedding Dresses for $500 Thanks to New Site Borrowing Magnolia

Planning a wedding is all about romance, love, family and, of course, spending a lot of money. The average American wedding cost nearly $30,000 according to The Knot and the average wedding dress eats up nearly $2,000 of that budget. Set your sights on a high end designer dress, you are looking at a price tag in the $3,000 to $5,000 to start. So what does a bride with champagne wishes and a Kool Aid budget do? You rent! At least that is what the ladies of Borrowing Magnolia have in mind for those brides hunting for the look for less.
