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 timeframe 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 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.

Yes, it is definitely possible to be able to re-create that exact bridal gown that you’ve been dreaming of. In fact, not only is it possible to re-create a World class couture gown, but we believe that your gown will be much better than an off-the-rack bespoke piece. Whether you’ve sketched it up yourself or have images and inspiration ideas to share, our talented team of designers can bring them to life. Our in-store designers have a great eye for detail and can refer to any image and confidently recommend the appropriate and most suitable materials and laces to be able to re-create your vision and goal.


There are many different types of laces which can be used to create a range of beautiful wedding dress styles. The most popular lace fabric for wedding dresses is beaded lace or embroidered lace which can be used to create a fitted, mermaid style wedding dress or a more traditional ball gown silhouette. Lace can also be used as an overlay on another fabric such as tulle or satin to create a softer look. Chantilly, Beaded and Guipure are all popular types of lace which can suit different styles of wedding dresses. They’re known for their intricate patterns and delicate scalloped edges.

A lace wedding dress can suit any silhouette you desire whether it’s a fitted mermaid style or a more traditional ball gown. If you want a softer look, you can opt for a dress with a tulle or satin underlay. For drama and volume, go for a full skirt with a fitted bodice. A long sleeved wedding dress in lace is also a good option for creating a statement look while giving you more coverage. This is a great option for winter weddings or if you simply want to keep your arms covered. You can also find lace wedding dresses with cap sleeves or illusion sleeves for a more modern take on the classic look.

There are many different types of necklines which can work well with a lace wedding dress. A sweetheart or V-neck will show off your décolletage while still looking romantic, while a high neck can give the illusion of a longer neck.

There are a few different skirt options which can work well with a lace wedding dress. A ballgown skirt will give you a dramatic look, while a mermaid or trumpet skirt will hug your curves. You can also go for a more relaxed A-line skirt.

Since lace is such a delicate fabric, it’s important to take extra care when cleaning and storing your wedding dress. Always consult the care label before attempting to clean your dress at home. Always recommended to take it to a professional dry cleaner. When storing your dress, wrap it in acid-free tissue paper and keep it in a cool, dark place in a plastic bag.

The beauty of a lace wedding dress is that it can be dressed up or down. For a more formal look, pair your dress with pearl or diamond jewellery. If you’re going for a more relaxed vibe, opt for floral accessories or a bridal headpiece. Our designers can help you create a dress that personifies your unique bridal style. We can help you develop your entire look and provide suitable styling options when it comes to bridal veils for your wedding day.
