Our gorgeous Melbourne based customer Melina recently attended a close friends wedding and decided to hire her Autumn wedding guest dress from GlamCorner! Our sophisticated midi-length Mossman ‘See No Boundaries’ dress was perfect for the elegant dress code and Melina looked absolutely stunning! She shares more about her rental experience below:
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
I had a wedding of a dear friend and former work colleague. It was at Albert Park in Melbourne. The bride is gorgeous, it was such a stunning venue and I wanted an outfit to match the special occasion. But I didn’t want to spend a lot of cashola on a whole new outfit that I would probably only wear once.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
The start of the year has been packed full of events. Weddings, engagements, 30th birthday parties. I’ve had something on basically every weekend since January! I’d had enough of repeating outfits and pestering my friends to borrow off them. My wardrobe is also overflowing with dresses I’ve only worn once!
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it
This wedding was at the start of April. The Mossman ‘See No Boundaries’ dress was perfect for the Autumn nuptials. The long sleeves made it suitable for the cooler night. I loved the khaki colour, the high neck and the lace. It was a little bit different, that’s why I liked it. It was also one of the new arrivals and I hadn’t seen it anywhere else yet.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time? For your first time renting a dress, what made you consider it?
I had never rented a dress before, but always wanted to try it. I was initially hesitant because I was concerned it wouldn’t arrive in time, or the fit wouldn’t be right. But the website made all the steps very clear. My dress even arrived five days earlier than I ordered it. The whole process was so smooth! It’s like having an endless wardrobe.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner
GlamCorner was recommended to me by a very close, trustworthy and always stylish friend. She consistently looks fabulous and has been hiring outfits for quite a while, so I knew I could trust her advice! I did research a few other hire websites but GlamCorner had the best range and availability. I should have known my fabulous friend was onto something.
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
The website makes the whole process very clear. All of my questions could be answered just by reading through the hiring steps. I loved being able to wear the dress, then pop it in the postage bag and send it off without having to worry about dry cleaning. It really couldn’t have been easier. I would absolutely recommend it to other women. The dresses are really affordable and the range is great.
Thanks Melina! You looked amazing and we’re so happy we were able to help you find the perfect Autumn wedding guest dress for your special occasion in Melbourne. We look forward to seeing you again soon xo
