Rental Returns

If the return date falls on a day that the boutique is closed (Sunday and Public Holidays) the next day will be the required return date.

Cancellation Policy

  • Rental Bookings: A cancellation fee per order applies to all cancelled bookings. Cancellation fee for dresses with a rental fee <$200= $45; dresses with a rental fee >$200= $75. If your event is cancelled or you cancel your hire, Dress for a Night will happily refund the rental amount minus $45 cancellation fee. The $45 cancellation fee applies per dress (not including the Backup Dress). Cancellations must be advised 48 hours prior to the Booking start date, before the item is collected by the customer or posted to the customer. Cancellations within 48 hours of the Booking start date qualify for a store credit (valid for 12 months). The Backup Dress fee can only be refunded prior to the dispatch of the item.
    • Example: cancellation of an order of 1 dress = 1x $45 fee/ $75 fee
    • Example: cancellation of an order of 2 dress= 2x $45 fee = $90 fee OR 2x $75 fee = $150 fee
    • Example: cancellation of an order of 1 dress + Backupdress (cancellation advised prior to dispatch) = 1x $45 fee/ $75 fee

Condition of rental items

  • All items available to rent at Dress for a Night are items that have been worn previously and are dry cleaned by a professional company "Limes Dry Cleaner". Dress for a Night also engages qualified seamstresses to mend and repair items. The condition of rental items are "as new" or "near new". Due to the nature of the item being worn multiple times, there may be minor visible repairs and imperfections. We recommend all customers to inspect garments prior to renting. Thank you for joining the greener and more affordable alternative to fashion by renting a garment.


  • We are able to post interstate. We use Express post satchels, which enables a guaranteed next day delivery in most areas. Please refer to the Australia Post website for further information on the Guaranteed-Next-Day-Delivery network in Australia. If the users location is out of the Express Post network, it will take more than one business day and Dress for a Night has no control over this. We recommend an 8-day booking for all areas that are outside metro/ CBD areas.
  • The return postage will include a prepaid return label which is addressed to our business.


Fit Guarantee and Back-up dress

  • On receiving the dress, interstate customers or customers unable to try on dresses in store are entitled to a Fit-Guarantee. If the dress does not fit, Dress for a Night will provide a refund, minus the postage, or a store credit.
  • Please note, there is a limit of one Rental Fee refund per order. If two full-priced rental dresses are returned unworn, customers can claim a refund for one dress' rental fee and a store credit for the other dress' Rental Fee.
  • Backup dress: A backup dress can be added to an order at a 80%OFF reduced rental fee. The backup dress fee is non refundable. Limit of 1 Backup Dress per order. The dress of lower rental cost will default to be the backup dress.
    • If the customer wears either the backup dress, or the full priced option, we do not refund the difference in price between the two.
    • If the customer does not wear either dress (= two dresses are returned with tags attached):We will refund/provide store credit for the booking fee for the primary dress only. The fee for the Backup dress will not be refunded. 

Dry Cleaning​

  • Dress for a Night will dry clean the dress after the hire period. We use experienced dry cleaners that are familiar with the care instructions. Customers agree not to attempt to clean the dress, if the customer attempts to clean the dress and it results in permanent damage, additional costs may incur.

Damage to hired Items/Lost and Stolen hired Items

  • We expect our customers to take reasonable care of the hired item. However, it is possible some damage may occur. For minor damage that is repairable for a cost of less than $100.00, Dress for A Night will not charge customers.
  • Dress for a Night offers free damage insurance to the value of one hundred dollars ($100) to cover minor damage or staining. For minor damage and/or staining if Dress for a Night assesses (at its sole discretion) that the cost of repairs will be over one hundred dollars ($100), then the customer will be required to pay the difference (e.g. if the repair cost is one hundred and fifty dollars ($150), then Dress for a Night will require the customer to pay fifty dollars ($50). The repair or replacement costs will be charged to the customer credit card details that were provided at the time of booking. Customers will be notified of all charges in advance. Repair or replacement cost may be up to the amount listed as the Recommended Retail Price (RRP) at the time of booking, less the booking fee.
  • If the item gets lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair, whether or not such loss, theft, or damage is attributable to any negligence, failure, or omission of the customer then the customer will be liable to pay for replacement of the item. In assessing the replaceable value, Dress for a Night will take into account, the demand of that dress in the market, the availability to purchase that dress in the market, the condition of the dress, and the rental fee that the customer has already made. Charges can be up to 100% of the recommended retail value in addition to the rental cost that the customer has already paid.
