Have a Spring wedding coming up and don’t know what to wear? Spring weddings are our favourite! All of the flowers are in bloom, the sun is out and the weather is just right. Spring calls for pretty pastels and flirty florals and our collection of Grace and Hart dresses are the perfect fit for a Spring wedding guest. Be inspired by our gorgeous Melbourne based customer Jess, who hired our Grace and Hart ‘Frilling Around’ Midi dress in Lilac for her friends Spring wedding.
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
My special occasion was a close friend’s beautiful wedding in Melbourne, and the first Spring wedding I have ever been to. I really wanted to find something that unique and pretty that fit the theme, but also something that didn’t break the bank! Renting a dress seemed like the best option, especially for a dress that I’ll most likely only end up wearing once.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
If I’m shopping for something in particular, I often get overwhelmed, spend a long time trying to find something I love and end up spending a lot of money on something I only end up wearing once. Renting a dress seemed very appealing as I could save money and time, and still be able to wear a designer dress! I also loved the $15 backup option, as it removed any stress I had about the dress fitting and looking right on me!
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I chose the Grace & Hart ‘Frilling Around’ Midi dress in Lilac – and it was beautiful! This dress was the first dress I saw that just stuck with me- I had a good look around the site but I just kept coming back to this dress as it seemed perfect for a wedding, and a perfect way to start the Spring season! I just loved the lace detail, and the quality was even better in person. I also wanted something that wasn’t too figure-hugging and I loved the way this flared out from just under the bust!
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
This was my first time renting a dress, and I had never really considered it before, but while I was Instastalking I saw some beautiful dresses I liked, and discovered they had been hired! When I found GlamCorner, I read the reviews and they were all so positive and the range was great- for a fraction of the full price you would usually pay. I also liked the option of not committing to keeping a dress I would most likely end up only wearing once. You also have the freedom to choose from such a wide range of quality designer dresses to fit any budget. In my case, I was looking for something under $100 – and there was plenty to choose from!
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I did a bit of googling for dress hire sites, and GlamCorner just stood out from the start. They have such a huge range of dresses, and I just found the site so easy to use. I also loved the customer review section, as you could really get a feel of what the dresses look like in real life, rather than just on the models.
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
The whole experience was just so much easier than I thought it would be! With such a wide range of dresses, and the option of choosing a backup for only $15, it just gave me a complete peace of mind. I would 10/10 recommend to other women, and I’ve already been telling my friends how easy everything was! From the initial website search, to the return express satchel included in the delivery – everything was just so so simple, and I am already looking for my next dress!
Thanks Jess! We’re so happy we were able to help you find the perfect Spring wedding guest dress to wear to your friends Spring wedding in Melbourne! You looked beautiful! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
