Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
My special occasion was my engagement party. I wanted to wear something really special that didn’t send me broke before the big day! The Grace & Hart dress I hired was just perfect for that. I received so many compliments from people, telling me how stunning the dress was.
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
I love dressing up. There is nothing better than rocking a brand new outfit, but not when it sends you out of pocket. Sure, you might look amazing for an evening, but more often than not, my dresses don't see the light of day again. Even if you do end up wearing something more than once, chances are you won't wear it often enough to get back what you paid for it. So renting a dress seemed like the perfect option for me on this occasion.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
I choose the Renaissance set because it had a classic yet elegant feel. The lace detail and the shape of the dress was just perfect and exactly what I had in mind for my special night. When I buy something I usually wear it once or twice and then hand it down to my sister or friends. I love how GC brings in new dresses and styles from high-end brands at such affordable prices.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time? For your first time renting a dress, what made you consider it?
For me, this was the first time hiring a dress. I had heard friends talk about how renting dresses was really becoming a big thing. I was a little unsure about how easy the whole process would be. So after coming across GC I made a phone call to ask a few questions and had a lovely lady run me through everything. It was all so easy! Choose your dress, wait for it to arrive, wear it, and put it back in the return bag.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
A simple search for “engagement dresses” into Google pulled up Glam Corners website. The website was super easy for me to navigate through. I knew I wanted white, so I used the refine tab and the date which I needed the dress for, and the search pulled up some beautiful options. I was surprised with how many beautiful dresses there were to choose from.
How was your overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
I couldn’t have been more happy with my whole experience at GC. The staff are genuinely interested and want to help customers find the perfect dress. A few things which sealed the deal for me; I loved the fact you can add on a “backup dress” – just in case the dress wasn’t quite what you are after. This was so reassuring because it was for my engagement, so I had two amazing options should one not fit. Both of the dresses that arrived were in as-new condition. I was sent a text on Sunday reminding me to drop my dresses back the next day. I didn’t have to worry about dry cleaning or a thing, I simply placed the dresses in the provided slip and dropped them to the local post office. I was then was contacted by GC telling me the dresses had safety arrived back at GC HQ.I cannot recommend GC more highly to everyone out there, I will definitely be using them for all future events.
What an amazing story Venetia! We're so happy that GC was able to be a part of this special moment with you. You looked absolutely amazing and clearly marked this occasion with a casual level of elegance and style. Good luck for the upcoming Big Day and we can't wait to dress you again soon xx
