Crafting dresses that make mothers feel magical.

Custom Mother of the Bride Dresses Melbourne

Celebrate love in style with a custom dress that is made just for you. Create a dress that symbolises love, family and celebration.

At d’Italia, we are passionate about providing mums with more options for dresses for their child’s big day. Elegance, style and modern touches are not only reserved for the younger generations. Together, we create a custom gown that you’ll fall in love with.

Our dressmakers have versatile skills, allowing them to create more than just wedding gowns. Our team will work with you to craft a dress that reflects your style and is made for your body. Your d’Italia consultant can also work with you to create a dress that fits the theme or colour scheme of the wedding. Your consultant will walk you through various fabric and silhouette choices to ensure you love every detail of your dress.

Our dresses are thoughtfully designed and created to make you look and feel your best in your dress. As part of the bridal party, you deserve to feel glamorous and beautiful. Make your dress dreams come true with d’Italia.

Feel radiant in your dress as you watch your child say, ‘I do’.


Having come to us, within minutes of discussing the formality of the wedding and their personal tastes and preferences, a majority of mothers are pleasantly relieved to realise that we can design and create them a unique, perfectly appropriate, stylish, elegant and flattering outfit – with no stress, and no guess-work – to ensure they will feel supremely confident on a day which is just as much theirs as it is their child’s.

We stock a delightful range of semi-formal to very formal Italian silks, French laces and beadings, in an impressive range of colours and styles. With a combination of these fabrics, our many years of experience in all areas of bridal fashion and our free in-house design and styling service, we will guide you in the right direction to ensure you present appropriately. Your look will be stylish and elegant, and your garment designed and fit your body shape perfectly – all these factors are the key to flattering you to your utmost, no matter what your body shape. We know all the tricks…!

Having never found themselves in this position before, it is common for mothers to leave their outfits to the eleventh hour – with only weeks or a couple of months to go, they find themselves at a loss. That is until they come in to see us, of course! It is with this said that we encourage mothers to start early (at least 8 months before the wedding) in their search for ready-made garments so that by the time they realise that their best option is to have theirs custom-made there is still sufficient time to be able to secure a booking with one of our seamstresses or tailors. Our team of seven seamstresses and tailors are often heavily booked at least eight months ahead, due to customers securing early up-front reservations. Bookings are taken for the month in which the outfit must be completed, whereas when your work is actually started is up to you.

d’Italia is renowned in the bridal industry for the creation of superb wedding dresses and gowns, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses, and mother of the bride or groom outfits. We very much look forward to meeting you to assist in the creation of a perfect outfit – one that will be appropriate, stylish, elegant and unique for you, the bridal mother…

d’Italia will make the exact style wedding dress or mother of the bride/groom dress you want, with custom corsetry to fit you perfectly, using the best quality silks and genuine French laces.

Intricately designed and thoughtfully crafted from the finest fabrics. Our Ready to Wear collection offers a selection of beautiful gowns for the romantic bride at heart.

Creation of a perfect garment takes time and care. It is for this reason that the seamstresses are booked well in advance. d’Italia’s referral seamstresses are regularly booked up to 12-18 months in advance of events as appointments and fittings are spread out over a number of weeks – deliberately planned out into the future – so that there is no unnecessary stress involved in having to rush anything.

Our expert designers and consultants will do their absolute best to guide you with selecting the most suitable fabrics whilst having a strong focus on your budget and design goals. Reach out to our designers today to get a rough quote by calling- 95094633
