Men hire suits, why can't ladies rent bridesmaid dresses?

Now we can!

Borrowed bridesmaid dresses have landed in Australia.  Welcome to Simply Borrowed!
We're on a mission to make bridesmaid dress shopping simple, stylish and affordable.  

Let's wind back to a gorgeous wedding earlier in the year, at which I was honoured to be a bridesmaid...

As we pulled up at the venue, I walked towards the group of sharp looking groomsmen (genuinely impressed) and turned to the bride, "Where'd the guys get their suits?" She replied "They hired them!"  

And in that moment, the idea was born. 
Men hire suits, why can't ladies rent bridesmaid dresses? 

From an idea to this very exciting launch day, it's already been an amazing journey and we'd like to share some of the highlights with you! 

A huge THANK YOU to our amazing and talented partners - JO.N.KO Studio (graphic design), Silverback Tech (web design), Embellish Makeovers (hair and makeup artists), Creative Cargo (photoshoot stylist) and Tharaka (photographer)
