Our gorgeous Perth based customer Amrei had the daunting tasking of organising her wedding ceremony in just 4 weeks and made the decision to save time and money by choosing to hire her wedding dress from GlamCorner! With the option to try-on dresses before you hire or book a backup dress just in case the first doesn’t fit means theres no stress involved! All of our designer dresses and gowns are available to hire for a small fraction of the retail price meaning you will save hundreds, even thousands, by choosing to rent. Amrei chose to hire our amazing Grace & Hart ‘Valentine Gown’ in Ivory for her special day and here she tells us more about her first dress hire experience:
Tell us about the special occasion you had and why you wanted to wear a designer dress for it?
I was getting married so I wanted to have a beautiful designer dress for my wedding day. We only decided a month ago to get married so it was a very rush job and any girl that has gone wedding dress shopping knows how long it takes to get a dress made, not to mention the cost! We are actually getting married in January, 2017 in New Zealand but due to both of our mothers failing health we decided to have a small ceremony here in Perth in October. The dresses arrived early, fit perfectly and were clean and pressed. Ready to go and another thing ticked off my massive list.
The day of the wedding was just amazing, everyone pulled together helping us to make the day so special and the dress was just beautiful. Everyone commented on how much they loved my dress and couldn’t believe it when I said I had hired it for under $100. It really was just a magical day and the ease of hiring the dress and how it all worked out just made the day less stressful and I have to say organising a wedding in 4 weeks along with everything else that is going on is full on!
What was it about this occasion that made renting a dress so appealing for you?
I decided to rent a dress for a couple of reasons. I have a wedding dress for New Zealand and I didn’t want to spoil that moment by everyone knowing what my dress would look like, so I knew I needed something else. Also, the timing of the whole thing was a major factor; there was no way that I would have found a wedding dress in time. Lastly, I have no need for two floor length formal/wedding gowns in white, this is why renting a dress was the only option.
Tell us about the dress and the designer label you chose, and why you chose it?
The dress I chose was the Grace & Hart ‘Valentine Gown’ in Ivory. It looked like a wedding dress and it had a beautiful back cut out which I wanted in my other dress but there were too many things I wanted in my wedding dress and try as you might you can’t fit them all in one dress! I couldn’t do a try on with this dress so I also took the option of having a backup dress just in case. I choose the Bronx and Banco ‘White Florence Midi’ but didn’t need to worry as the Valentine Gown fit perfectly.
Have you rented a dress before or was this your first time?
I have never rented a dress before but I have a friend who swears by it and I thought I would give it a go. I have many beautiful dresses that sit in my wardrobe that I have only worn once or twice and I couldn’t justify spending a lot more money on another wedding dress I would only wear once.
Tell us about how you first discovered GlamCorner?
I googled all the dress hire places in Perth and online. I went to a store in here and tried on some dresses but none of them were what I wanted and it was more expensive. I looked at some different sites but GlamCorner was the easiest to use and had the most options so I booked the dress and waited, hoping that it would all work out. It did!
How was you overall experience with GC (online and offline) and would you recommend us to other women?
I have no complaints. The website is the easiest to use and I could sort by colour which was great. I loved the try on and back up options and it was just beautiful to look at. The dresses arrived two days early and they were both perfect. I put them in the return postal bag and dropped them off to the post office in the morning. So easy! I have already recommended GlamCorner to all my friends and I will definitely be using GlamCorner again so I don’t have to sentence another beautiful dress to sit in my closet forever!
Thanks Amrei! We’re so happy we were able to make the perfect dress hire possible for your special day. You looked incredible! We look forward to seeing you again soon xoxo
