Fitzroy Dress Rental- Changes the Way We Do Fancy!



Weddings have become major events and rightly so. It’s a celebration of love and we are all here for it. But for many, these are challenging financial times. More people, whether they are part of a wedding party or a guest, are looking for smart and stylish ways to be more budget conscious. “Sustainability” is the buzzword of the day and continues to thrive when it comes to what’s trending for weddings. Rentals have extended beyond decor and have even trickled into fashionable options.

When we visited Toronto-based dress rental company “The Fitzroy” we were blown away with the service and the selection. At their new and much larger location in The Junction public is invited to “come in and play dress up”. With access to thousands of stylish party dresses for all shapes and sizes range from 0 to 20, it’s a worthy exploration. Many of the dresses we’ve noticed are from New York and California labels. 

But it’s not just the selection of fashionable cocktail dresses, evening gowns, and destination outfits at this stunning 9,000 square foot space that is impressive. If you’re someone who isn’t sure what suits your body shape or curious to get out of your comfort zone, then their on-staff stylists are happy to help. Highly recommended tapping into their expertise even if it’s just to see what someone else envisions you wearing. 

There’s no commitment or obligation to rent any dress on the spot. But the opportunity to try does give you a good idea of what can be yours when needed. Take photos of all the dresses you adore and look spectacular in. Take note of your sizing. Then, when the day comes, you can order what you want online. Fitzroy will even deliver and pick up. 

Rental prices start at $100 for a four-day rental. You can also do eight days or more. Price varies. More intricate dresses are priced slightly more but nothing compared to what you would have to pay outright. Besides, if you don’t plan on wearing a dress more than twice, what’s the point of purchasing outright?  An incredible deal for some of the most elegant and stylish dresses on the market today. 

No worries of having to dry clean or have to deal with unexpected minor damages happen. They have a $5 insurance fee to cover any damages. 

We also love how the staff will make note of the event where you will be wearing the outfit to minimize any possible duplications should other attendees rent from the company as well. By the way, the staff are also pretty honest about what works well on your body. We appreciated that. 

The dress rental company also carries bridal dresses, mother-of-the-bride/groom dresses and even pretty options for flower girls. Styles range from elegant classics to modern day trendy for all ages.

Fitzroy Dress Rental is located 213 Sterling Road, Unit 111 in Toronto. You can also see the styles of dresses, pricing, and book online.
