The week of your event, or as soon as you receive your outfit if you choose to have it delivered to you. After taking your measurements when you made your reservation, our experienced team prepares your outfit. Then, a fitting a few days before your event provides the opportunity to make any final alterations, if needed, to ensure a perfect fit.

Times can vary depending on the number of people being dressed for the event. Please plan about 1 hour. Our team of professionals is very efficient and used to working with tight turnaround times. That is how we can offer full service in under an hour.

Ideally, as soon as you know the date. If the event is during wedding season (May to September), We recommend that you order your outfit about 3 months in advance. As delivery times vary by region, you should place your order no later than 10 business days* before the event.

*Weekends excluded.

Yes, but fees may apply depending on the timing of the cancellation. For rentals cancelled 15 days or more before the event, you can transfer the $50 (non-refundable) deposit paid at the time of reservation. However, for rentals cancelled less than 15 days before the event date, the deposit is both non-refundable and non-transferable because the rented clothing has already been prepared and reserved for you.

If the outfit has already been delivered, no refund can be issued.

For online orders – If the event is cancelled before the outfit is delivered and you inform us at least 15 days before, you will receive a full refund.

Customers can trust transactions on our site, which uses PayPal technology. Protecting your confidential data is of the utmost importance to Classy.

It may take up to 72 hours for your card to be charged, depending on the terms and conditions of the applicable banking institutions.

We take the utmost care of our formal wear. A non-refundable $6 general insurance fee is included with each rental. This mandatory fee covers stains and the normal wear and tear of the borrowed clothing. Note that in the event of loss or irreparable damage, you are responsible for paying the cost of replacing the article of clothing in question.

Not usually, no. As soon as you receive your outfit, please remove it from the box and hang it up. We use an anti-wrinkling treatment on our clothing so that you can wear it right away. Residual wrinkles should disappear quickly. Please contact our customer service team if your outfit is still wrinkled several hours after hanging it up. You may have to use steam to remove stubborn wrinkles.

Delivery Icon

Delivery

Purolator will deliver your outfit to you three to seven days before your event. You will be provided with the tracking number for your package by email as soon as your order ships. In general, no signature is needed upon receipt. However, if the delivery service does not leave packages at the door in your neighbourhood, please provide an alternate address or have the package delivered to a Purolator pickup location.

Yes, we deliver everywhere in Canada except the Yukon and Northwest Territories.

Unfortunately, no, not at this time. Please note that all returns must also be shipped from a Canadian address. If you need to rent an outfit for several weeks, please let us know at the time of your reservation.

Unfortunately, Purolator does not deliver to PO boxes.

Standard delivery fees vary based on postal code. The exact delivery cost will be indicated before you validate your order once you have indicated your delivery address.

We ship your clothing in a high-quality corrugated box. The outfit is hung on a coat hanger and folded once in a special garment bag. We recommend that you hang up your clothing as soon as it is delivered to give any wrinkles time to disappear.

Since a signature is required upon delivery, if the Purolator worker cannot hand you your package directly, they will return another time. However, if no one collects the package after 2 attempts, it is sent to a postal company pickup location.
