Formal Tips

Your Formal ‘One Night Stand’

How to save big bucks while still looking fabulous for your formal.

Formal’s all around the world are known for being the most glamorous and looked- forward to night of your high school life, though it is also known for being one of the most expensive nights of your life. Hair, nails, spray tan and makeup… the list can go on! Many girls look for different boutiques for their perfect dress, which ends up sitting in the closet collecting dust, not being able to justify wearing such a ravishing looking dress to another event. Instead of spending big bucks on a dress you’ll most likely never wear again, you might want to consider hiring out your formal dress this summer.


The formal dress is one of the most important spectacles of the night, which can either make you or break you. Too simple and it could look underdressed or cheap, but too over- board and it can cost you a fortune. Sometimes the eBay $50 dresses just don’t cut it anymore. This is where your formal one night stand comes in.

This small Adelaide boutique is gaining popularity and is perfect for school formals. One Night Stand is located on 422 Pulteney Street in Adelaide, who hires out expensive, high-end retail gowns for a quarter of the price! Renting out over 150 dresses each week, many teens and adults alike turn to this store for their go-to evening gowns.

Cheap, affordable and glamorous are words used to describe this store. Weekend hire for dresses (including dry cleaning) starts at $50 for lower-end dresses to $250 for high price labels such as Ae’lkemi gowns, which retail for $1700. If you want to budget your formal this year, I also suggest getting a group of girls together and going to a dress rental boutique to save so much on your formal experience. You’ll be the envy of every girl who spent a fortune on a dress which now hangs, forgotten and worn-once, at the back of their wardrobe!
