When the big day has finally been set, spend thousands making it special and not on your one-time dress. The Volte offers you a very special wedding dress hire option that will save you money and time.

Back to the planning. The question was popped, and it was amazing. There was candlelight and a long walk under a star-lit sky. Or you were wrestling with the kids in the backyard and the question bubbled up and out of the moment. Whatever way it happened; you’re now planning a wedding. This is the moment that two individuals have to share their love and commitment for one another in front of the people who mean the most to them. It’s a more than just a momentous occasion. It’s sharing the most intimate moment of your relationship commitment and it should have everything to make it feel and look as special as it already is. Especially the show-stopping dress to trump all dresses. And we have plenty of them to choose from.

Can you rent a wedding dress?

Absolutely! A wedding dress rental will cost you a fraction of the price of purchasing your wedding dress. The Volte specialises in hosting a network of people who have amazing, dream wedding dresses and gowns, and loaning them out to the women who are planning their special day. Your dream wedding dress designer is on The Volte because we are home to world’s biggest designers and collections.

If it’s not your wedding day and you’re looking for a knock-out gown for the vows and reception, choose from our formal dress hire options from Australia’s best and most loved designers. Our designers include home grown superstars like Bec and Bridge and Alex Perry. Attending a beach wedding? Choose stunning Boho vibes from the Queen of Exotic Culture, Camilla. Nobody designs a garden party frock quite like the sisters from Zimmermann. Zimmermann dress hire options include everything from fun and flirty to formal and demure.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding dress?

The cost of hiring a bridal gown from The Volte depends entirely upon the gown and the owner. We’re confident that we have a design option to suit every budget and that you’ll have more fun spending the money for a wedding gown purchase on your honeymoon plans instead. You can be definitely sure that a wedding dress rental is less than a wedding dress purchase, and with wedding dress hire rates being so affordable, you can really stretch your designer dreams.

The same applies to the rest of the bridal party as well. Dream wedding dress designers usually also have a range of bridesmaid dresses to suit. Outfit your entire bridal party from the best designers in the world from The Volte.

When it comes to choosing your wedding dress hire then timing must be an absolute precision exercise. You do not want your dress arriving late. The earlier you choose your dress, the better your chances of avoiding delays so pre-book with the owner of your chosen dress as early as you can. All of our rental rates include dry cleaning, so you don’t have to worry about that when it comes time to return it. Receive your dream dress, wear it for the day and get all of your photos the way you dreamed of them being, then simply send it back with the pre-addressed postage option.

We have dresses available all across Australia. Search through the wardrobe and style racks in SydneyMelbourneAdelaidePerth and Brisbane. When you have found the perfect dress, ensure the sizing is correct. It’s always a good idea to send the owner a message to confirm any areas of concern. This is your wedding dress, after all. Once you the gown you want booked and ready, use our secure online payment method designed to protect both you and the owner.

How to find an affordable wedding dress?

Start your search for your wedding dress on The Volte. Our collection can be filtered by event to ensure that you’re only going to search out the truly spectacular bridal options. Choose from traditional gowns full of long tulle trains and plenty of volume or opt for a subtler modern design in muted tones and gentle, flowing silhouettes.

If you’re opting for a more non-traditional event and just looking for a special gown that marks the occasion instead of the Cinderella ball gown, our collections include the best from the best in Australia. Bec and Bridge are particularly gifted with feminine chic dresses designed to hug the hip and accentuate the natural female form without the drama of a fuller, more complex gown. If you’re all about the drama and you want to be bold and beautiful, Alex Perry has a gown or five that are made for women who want the world to stop and take notice of them for a while. Camilla’s sensual and fantastical collections are inspired by her travels all around the world. She draws inspiration from other cultures, from nature and from her own spirituality to design and create bespoke Bohemian fashion with a deft, personal touch on every garment.

The Volte has a dress for every woman and every occasion, including the biggest day of her life. Spend the thousands for a wedding dress on the life you’re building after the party, and opt for a wedding dress hire option from The Volte. Rent a dress for your wedding.
