Gorgeous bride-to-be Sarah recently hired our Bronx and Banco ‘Positano Dress’ in white for her hens weekend in the Yarra Valley and here she shares her seamless rental experience and why hiring a designer dress is an economical way to look stunning without being caught wearing the same dress twice!
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
I rented a dress from GlamCorner for my hens party, which was a winery tour with my girlfriends in the Yarra Valley. Given I’d be the centre of attention, naturally I wanted to wear a stunning dress that I felt both comfortable and glamorous in. Wearing a designer dress appealed to me because it felt special and exciting for this once in a lifetime event. Designer dresses are also typically of a higher quality with more interesting and unique designs than what I’d find in chain stores.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
I knew there would be plenty of photos taken at my hens party, meaning it would be hard for me to wear whatever dress I chose again without people recognising it. When you buy a designer dress its an investment, so you don’t want it to be something that you can only wear once! Renting a dress was the logical decision.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I chose the Bronx and Banco White Positano Dress. It’s a beautiful and feminine lace mini dress that was perfect for a spring winery tour in the Yarra Valley. I chose the colour as I wanted to wear white to stand out amongst my girlfriends as the bride to be – and I certainly did! Everyone loved the dress and I received tons of compliments. I wore the dress with black heels, a black bag, rose gold jewellery and a flower crown.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
This is my second time renting a dress from GlamCorner. I previously rented a floor length gown for an awards gala I attended and had such a great experience that using GlamCorner again was a no brainer. GlamCorner is the only renting service I’ve ever used.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I discovered GlamCorner while I was researching dresses to wear for the awards gala, and agonizing over spending $500+ on a dress I’d likely only wear once. You want to feel and look beautiful for special events, but buying a new expensive outfit for each one is definitely painful so I decided to look into renting one. GlamCorner and a few other similar services came up in a google search and I chose GlamCorner as they had the best range with excellent reviews, as well as very reasonable prices.
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
Using GlamCorner has been an excellent experience – it’s SO easy!! Just pick the dates you need an outfit, see what is available that fits into the category you’re after (colour, length, style etc), and browse your options. The hardest part is picking something as all the dresses are stunning! I particularly love the option to hire a backup dress for a small additional cost, just in case your first choice doesn’t fit or look quite right. I’ve never had a problem receiving or returning the dresses either, its simple and pain free. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend GlamCorner to other women and do so all the time. I’m definitely a dress renting convert, and intend on continuing to use GlamCorner for special events in the future.
Thanks Sarah! We’re so happy we were able to make the perfect dress hire possible for your Hens Weekend. You looked incredible! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
