Does GMD have a shop to visit?
No, we are purely an online rental boutique and we don't have a physical location where you can come and try on dresses. All products are delivered to you.
When do I place my order?
There is no specific time in which you have to place your order before your event. If could be 3 months before, or 3 days. Of course, the sooner you order the higher the chance that your favourite dresses will be available for your event date, but don't worry if you do it last miniute, we send all dresses using a Next Day delivery service.
How long can I borrow a dress for?
On the website you select the option to borrow each dress for either 2 nights or 7 nights. But if you want to hang onto it for longer because you need time to accessorize, or perhaps you are going on holiday, that is no problem! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can either renew it for you, or give you a quote for a longer rental period.
Can I try on the dresses?
Yes. There are 2 options:
Option 1: (Standard for all orders) When the dresses are delivered for your event you will try them on.
Option 2: If your event is more than 30 days away from the date you order you can opt to use our ADVANCE TRY ON service. You will receive the dresses asap and choose one to have re-delivered for the event. This service is ?30 per order (non refundable) and you can tick this option at the checkout.
How many dresses can I try on?
There is a limit of 3 dresses per order. With some of the large dresses with lots of material this could be limited to 1 or 2. We will deliver them to you and after you try them on you will tell us which one you have decided to wear for your event. You will then keep all of the dresses until after the event and return them in the same box. Once we receive them back we will refund you for the dresses which you did not wear.
When will my dresses be delivered?
When you select your event date, you can view your delivery and return date. We always send an email the day that the dresses are dispatched, so you know that your dress is on its way. Your dress will never just turn up un-announced!
