How to Start Wedding Suit Rental Business

Would you ever consider helping a couple for their very special wedding? Starting a wedding suit rental business is very fulfilling and profitable as well.

Most brides and grooms are content with renting their dresses for the wedding instead of spending huge money in creating, storing, and preserving them. Here is a comprehensive guide to help you with this opportunity.

Most people are so practical nowadays. They would rather choose a wedding suit dress rental compared to spending a fortune in gowns and tuxedos. With rental dresses, the bride and groom can just choose the dress, wear it, and then return it within the allotted period of time. They don’t even have to worry about dry cleaning.

Wedding Suit Rental Business Plan

It’s relatively easy to start a wedding suit rental business even from home. A small scale venture can easily progress into a large one. Definitely, there’s always a good demand for this type of industry. Here are some advantages to your clients if you’re thinking of starting this business:

  • Save lots of money – purchasing wedding suits could cost thousands of dollars but rentals would only cost hundreds if not less. In fact, many rental businesses even offer packages that include jewelry, shoes, and veil.
  • Maintenance – your clients will no longer worry about cleaning their dress after the occasion.
  • Limited space – a suit rental will save them storage space in the house.

Wedding Suit Rental Business Guide

To start your own wedding suit rental business, you need to think of the types of suits you would rent to your clients. In fact, you can even diversify to rent punch bowls, place and plates settings, backdrops, tablecloths, and even outdoor canopy tents.

Then, contact some wedding rental businesses around your area to make sure that you will charge your clients correctly. It’s also important to research your competition and make various strategies on how you can offer great products and services better than them. Remember that there are a lot of couples getting married everywhere. Just open your eyes and find a good niche to begin with.

Don’t forget to register your business in the state and/or city where you are located. Buy your wedding suit items and then spread the word that you have quality dresses available for rent. It’s also recommended to go to bridal trade shows or exhibits to market your business. In this industry, referrals are very important. You may work out an arrangement with photographers, bakers, or jewelers to give your name to their clients as well so that you can have an ongoing market list. Finally, think about your transportation and storage issues. It’s a good investment to purchase a service vehicle so that you can deliver the suits with ample time before the wedding.
