Custom Wedding Dresses vs. Ready-to-Wear.

Imagine every little detail you’ve dreamed of in your wedding gown coming to life.

Walking down the aisle in a gown that is crafted just for you.

This is why our brides opt for a custom wedding dress. No more compromising on style, fit or craftsmanship.

● Be part of the design process from ideation to creation
● Your vision brought to life
● Custom-made for you and your body for the perfect fit
● Unlimited fittings
● Choice of high-quality designer fabrics
● Hand-made in Melbourne

However, Ready-to-Wear can be a great option for many brides. Although we’re passionate about crafting custom dresses, d’Italia offers limited collections of bridal gowns in our Melbourne bridal store for brides who prefer a pre-made option. These gowns are designed in-house by our experienced designers using high-quality fabrics.



Ready to wear wedding dresses are those that you can find in a store or order online, while custom wedding dresses are made specifically for you. A custom wedding gown will often fit better as they are made to your exact measurements and allow more creative freedom in terms of design. With custom gowns, you’ll be able to get the perfect fit, choose your own fabric and design details, and end up with a one-of-a-kind dress that you’ll love.
The time it takes to make a custom wedding dress will vary depending on the complexity of the design and the availability of materials. We recommend booking your first appointment with d’Italia 12-18 months before your wedding date. This time frame allows you to communicate with your designer, make any necessary adjustments as you come in for regular fittings, and receive your wedding gown in plenty of time for a final fitting before your big day.


The average cost of custom-made wedding dresses – including construction and fabric is:

Without lace, beading or embellishments- $2,500 – $3,000

With lace, beading and/or embellishments- $3,500+ (average)

The cost of a custom wedding dress varies depending on the materials used and the complexity of the design. However, as a guide, most brides invest $2,000 to $3,500+ in their custom gowns

There are many different types of fabrics that can be used for a custom wedding gown, including silk, satin, lace, and tulle. The fabric you choose depends on your dress’s overall style and your budget. Our expert designers and consultants will assist you with fabric selection.
