Turns out there's a new(ish) Canadian company that has made the entire process super simple, streamlined, and practical. Launched in May 2011, Rent frock Repeat is a designer dress rental service that you will want to visit often.
You can search for a dress by availability (i.e., available this weekend), best bets, what's new, special offer, price range, size, designer, colour, style, sleeve, dress length, occasion, body type, or neckline. Cross-match this to your desired arrival date and rental length (4 or 8 days), and you can have a fabulous dress for your next occasion!
Rental rates start around $50 and your rental includes two sizes of the same dress to ensure you get the right fit. Shipping to Calgary is $31.95 and all shipping rates include return cost and supplies.
Honestly, I'm 100% sold. Time to plan an event so I can rent one of their gorgeous frocks!
