We can never get enough of seeing our customers have the best time at their events, especially our wedding day customers! Our beautiful customer, Lorraine, chose to wear the Candy Dress in Ivory by Jadore to her destination wedding at Boracay Islands! Featuring a stunning off-shoulder style, dreamy white lace and a mermaid hemline to complete. Read more about her wedding designer dress hiring experience below.
Tell us about the occasion that you rented GC item for?
My husband and I secretly eloped on the beautiful island of Boracay but we still wanted to throw a wedding party to surprise our families and closest friends. We wanted the party to be fun and relaxed so we did it at the same time as our daughter's first birthday. While our guests were having dinner, we showed them our wedding elopement video :)
Why rent over buy?
Ever since becoming a mother, I have been very conscious of spending my money. Before I can just buy what I want but now, I always ask myself, "Do I REALLY need this?". I didn't want to spend thousands of dollars on my dress that I will only get to wear once (twice if I get divorced LOL). That's at least five years worth of clothes for my daughter.
I am a big fan of GlamCorner. I found out about them two years ago from someone's blog (it was about being a savvy bride). GlamCorner is the practical way of dressing up without the massive price tags. I also don't have to worry about dry cleaning and they offer complimentary insurance. Winning!
Did you enjoy your overall experience with GlamCorner? What part of the process was most memorable?
YAAAASSS! Every time I receive my GlamCorner box, I get very giddy. It's like the adult version of playing dress-ups. I don't usually show my husband the clothes I rented from GlamCorner. For this occasion, it's different. When I tried Jadore's Candy Dress in Ivory, I felt like a bride again. I ran to my husband and showed the dress. It looked like a wedding dress. I am petite, so it looked like a long dress with a short trail. I was able to move around and danced in this dress. It was beautiful.
Would you recommend us to your friends and family? If so, what would you tell them?
I highly talk about GlamCorner not only to my family and friends but also to my clients. I am a freelance makeup artist so I get to meet a lot of brides to be. I remember one client who said to me that I talk about GlamCorner like as if I own the business HAHA! Our makeup trial went for three hours because we ended up browsing all the styles that her bridesmaids can wear.
What else would you like us to know?
GlamCorner's selections are good. I am slim and petite. It's very hard to find my size. It's either size 6 is quite tight or size 8 is a bit loose. The size charts help me a lot to choose the right size. If I am unsure, I can pay an extra $15 for a Back-Up Dress. My personal favourites are Nicholas, Rebecca Vallance, Elliatt, and C/MEO Collective. I am very lucky to grab some amazing bargains during their clearance sale.
I hope that one day, Australian brands like Dion Lee and Albus Lumen can join this bandwagon. P.S. The GlamCorner staff are amazing. They are very helpful and the customer service is soooooo good. They do care and look after their community.
