One Night Affair Gown Rentals
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I rented my prom dress from them back in 1998 and had an absolutely wonderful experience! Nobody else had a dress that could even come close to competing with mine, it was so amazing and I still remember feeling like a movie star walking into a movie premiere. Having never forgotten that feeling, needless to say, when I got engaged last December, I immediately thought of them and was hoping that they were still around. I had moved to Seattle 9 years ago, so I'm not up on everything that's going on around Los Angeles. I was really excited when I found out that not only are they still around but they had so many more options to offer to make it convenient for someone like me who is out of town. They told me if I didn't want to fly into Los Angeles that I could do the entire rental (or purchase if I wanted to...which I didn't want) by internet. I actually preferred to fly down so I could physically see everything that they had to offer....I like to see the fabrics and lace and try things on, and not to mention, have someone help me with that whole process. Considering that I've never been married before, I really needed some direction with the whole thing because I was completely stressed out and overwhelmed with this whole wedding idea! A prom dress was one thing, but a wedding dress...this was a whole new ballgame. I flew in the end of January, had an appointment on a Friday evening, I found an overwhelming amount of gowns that were absolutely gorgeous and the staff was unbelievably helpful, friendly and nice (I don't know what some of you other people were talking about), they walked me through everything and gave me some extremely creative ideas (which I ended up in the end using), but even so, I couldn't make up my mind, so I left and ended up coming back the next day, having slept on things, I was ready to go back and make my decision. Nervous as I was, that was the best decision I have ever made. The gown was unbelievably beautiful by the designer Eve of Milady, I got all the extra "STUFF" to go with it, jewelry, veil and headpiece, even the understuff. I ended up flying in one more time a couple weeks ago, just before my wedding to have it altered and fit to me, which again worked out splendid, not a single glitch, and I took it home with me. My wedding was as magical as anyone could ever imagine, I couldn't have hoped for anything more...I looked and felt like a princess bride, and everyone was completely blown away when I told them that I had rented it from the same place that I had rented my prom dress 12 years ago in Los Angeles. I have nothing but fantastic things to say about One Night Affair and I will make sure that I tell everyone that I know and anyone who I don't know who will listen, that I highly highly recommend them, they are one of my favorite memories of my entire wedding day Show less
