Dress Hire FAQs

What is the best way to book a dress?

The best way to secure your hire is to book directly through the website.

You are also able to book and pay for your hire at your try-on appointment by cash or EFT if the garment is available for your selected date.

If your booking is for a week day please contact TDS via DM on Instagram or through our contact box on the website.

Do I wash the dress before I return it?


Please return all garments to TDS unwashed.

What if I stain the dress?

Do not attempt to remove any stains yourself as this may make it worse.

We request that you notify us of any stains/damage to the garment as soon as possible so we may consult with our dry cleaner/seamstress.

When do I have to return the garment by?

All garments must be returned by no later than 8pm on the Monday immediately following your event unless you have made alternative arrangements with TDS.

Please refer to our dress hire T&Cs regarding late fees.

Can I try on the garment before I hire?

Yes, we do offer and recommend try-on appointments.

An 15 minute try-on appointment can be booked online here for Thursday and Friday evenings and Saturday morning.

If my event is on a Monday – Thursday how do I book?

If your event does not fall on a weekend, you will need to contact TDS via DM on Instagram or through our contact form here.

To assist us in confirming availability please let us know of the garment name, size and date of your event.

Can you hold a garment for me so I can try it on at my appointment?

Unfortunately we are unable to hold any of the garments.

In order to secure a garment it must be booked by paying the full hire amount.

Try-on appointments are subject to availability so if you wish to try on a specific dress we recommend that you contact us on the day of your appointment to confirm if it is available.
