How long can I hire a dress for?

Dresses are available for Short Term hire (4 days) or Week-Long hire

(7 days).

How far in advance can I book?

We know time can get away from you and wedding season can be busy. We take bookings 6 months in advance so you can tick it off your list early!

How do I return the dress?

For a hassle free return, you will receive a pre-paid satchel with your order. Just place the dress in the satchel and put it in a yellow post box or hand it in at the post office for scanning on or before the date shown on your enclosed information card.

What if I am running late with returning the dress?

In the event that the dress is returned late, there is a $15.00 per day late fee that applies. Our dresses take much time and care to clean and prepare ready for our next customer so it is most important that every effort is made to return them on time. The late fee will apply each day until the dress is returned until the maximum amount of the RRP of the dress is reached. In the event that the dress is not returned, the late fee will apply and in addition any other reasonable costs to cover its replacement.

What happens if the dress is damaged or stained?

Please don’t fret. Please do not try and clean or repair the dress. Email us at to advise us of the situation as soon as possible. The dress will be assessed upon its return and if the damage is less than $30.00 to repair, it’s on us. However if the dress is damaged beyond that, a cost will be incurred. If the dress is damaged beyond repair 100% of the cost of the dress will be charged and any other reasonable costs to cover its replacement.

How can I choose the best size and fit and can it be tried it on?

Please refer to our Size Guides. If you are in Adelaide, South Australia please email us to arrange a Try-On Booking and we can provide you with more information. If you are having trouble choosing a size, please email us at and we will be happy to assist you.

Care after wear?

Please do not clean the dress after it has been worn. We professionally clean all of our dresses.
