Our lovely customer Victoria decided to wear the Mercury Midi Dress by Pasduchas to her friend’s wedding at the Hunter Valley. Featuring a satin silk fabrication in a blush colour and a flowy silhouette, this style is perfect to stand out against the natural setting! Read more about Victoria’s experience below.
Tell us about the occasion that you rented the Mercury Midi Dress by Pasduchas for?
I rented this little number for a fancy wedding out in the Hunter Valley. It was a gloriously dry and hot Australian afternoon, and the venue backed onto bushland. It was the wedding of for a friend of mine who runs a successful business (which includes wedding reception planning), and I knew the whole event would be outrageously glamorous. I often shy away from pink, however, this rose gold colour popped against the muted palette of the Australian bush and I think it looked nice.
Why rent over buy?
I am trying to get into the “slow fashion” culture, or at least trying to avoid single-handedly destroying the environment with my love for frocks. There are also clear cost benefits, as I find myself disinclined to wear the same dress to a different wedding, as I often have overlapping friends. I get the adrenalin rush of a new piece of clothing without the $500 price tag.
When I first started looking into renting dresses, GlamCorner was clearly the most reputable and came with the most credentials. It’s risky business guessing what dress is going to fit a woman’s body, but each time I have been highly impressed with the service. I would be too scared to try another company now that I have had so many success stories with GlamCorner.
Did you enjoy your overall experience with GlamCorner? What part of the process was memorable?
This is the third time I have rented with GlamCorner, and each time I have been highly impressed by the prompt service and professionalism. The other times I have rented with GlamCorner I had to make some speedy returns for different sizes, and GlamCorner was able to facilitate that for me without a problem. The only issue this time round was that I loved both my primary dress and back-up dress, and had to do a quick survey with my friends as to which one I should wear!
Would you recommend us to your friends and family? If so, what would you tell them?
Definitely yes, and have done so on a number of occasions. I have advised that in my view it’s the best way to get designer dresses at a quarter of the cost, and it’s a fool-proof strategy with the back-up dress/easy returns system. So far I have only rented for weddings, but I would like to branch out and consider doing it for other major events, like 30ths and Hens etc. Each time the Customer Service team has been exemplary.
