  3. Peace of Mind. We take the stress out of hiring by allowing you to try on and collect your outfits 5 days before you need them.  Hire from us and you most definitely will not be trying to sort them out the day before.

Hiring Process

Step 1. Initial appointment.  Visit our team of highland dress experts in store to see each tartan or jacket up-close and get help to find the right outfit for you.  Tell us all about your event and we can suggest tartans, jacket styles and accessories from our range that will make you stand out from the crowd!

Step 2. Fitting appointment(s).  For weddings, we recommend having an initial fitting appointment up to one year before the big day so that we can ensure the approximate sizes required will be available when you need them.  A fitting appointment is recommended 8-10 weeks prior to your big day for all adults included in your hire order.  This will allow us to confirm the size of all garments to be hired.

Step 3. Collection.  Your outfit(s) will be available for collection from us 5 days prior to your required date.  When you come to collect we would love to see it on you, just to make sure everything fits like a dream and so we can make any last minute tweaks that are necessary.

Step 4. Enjoy the Day!  Once you're all kilted up, strut your stuff and bask in that liberating feeling of freedom!

Step 5. Return.  It would be great if you could return your outfit to us as soon as possible following your wedding or formal event.  Don't worry about cleaning, we will sort that out.
