What does consigning a dress mean?
When you consign your dress with FMBR, you remain the owner of it. We rent it out to future brides or young ladies, and you receive a percentage of the rental fee every time it rents out.
What kind of dresses do you accept?
We currently accept designer wedding dresses, prom, homecoming, and Mother’s dresses that are newer than 2013. We accept all sizes and styles.
What if my dress gets damaged?
If your dress gets damaged beyond repair, you will be compensated for the entire rental price plus $100 for wedding dresses and $50.00 for formal dresses. (ex. Wedding Dress rental is $500, compensated damage amount is $600.) When a renter signs a rental agreement, she knows that she is responsible for this amount if it comes back damaged. We have found that renters are very careful with our dresses and have very little trouble with this!
How do you keep track of what is mine?
We keep an account for each person that has a dress in our store. Your dress and accessories are all tagged with numbers that correspond to your account.
How many times can my dress be rented out?
The number of times a dress can rent out varies from dress to dress, depending largely on style and size.
How long will you keep my dress?
We will keep your dress as long as it continues to be stylish and in good condition. However, when your dress starts showing wear, you will be notified that it can longer be consigned.
What happens when you don’t want my dress anymore?
When your dress can longer be consigned, you will be notified and have 30 days to either pick up your dress , notify us that you would like it shipped to you at your cost, or let us know that you would like to donate it to a charity of our choice.
How do I know when my dress rents out?
A Notice of Rental email is sent out at the end of the month to the owners of the dresses that were rented/ worn during the month.
How do I get paid when my dress rents out?
You will receive a check in the mail approximately 2 weeks after you receive your Notice of Rental email.
Am I responsible for the cleaning of my dress?
We require that your dress be professionally cleaned before accepting it into our shop. After that FMBR assumes responsibility for the cleaning of your dress between rentals.
I want to consign my dress. What do I do now?
To consign your dress, please give us a call or fill out an application on our website. You will receive a response within 48 hours of submitting your application. If your application is accepted, you will be given a call that allows you to schedule an appointment with FMBR to drop off your dress.
What happens if I want my dress back?
If you need your dress back for any reason, please notify us, and we will have it ready for you to pick up within a week. If your dress is under contract to be rented, you will have to wait to pick it up until after it has been worn.
