Plus Size Wedding Dresses

Every bride deserves to feel beautiful…create your dream wedding dress with d’Italia.


Elegance and style. That’s what our bridal designers and dressmakers bring to each custom wedding gown they craft. At d’Italia, we empathise with the challenges faced by plus-size brides in their search for the perfect dress. Too often, bridal stores offer limited options, leaving you feeling compelled to compromise on your vision for your wedding gown. But at d’Italia, we’re committed to changing that narrative.

d’Italia is for the curvy brides. We’re dedicated to creating gowns that make you both look good and feel good. We craft gowns that don’t just fit your curves but accentuate your features and allow you to feel your most beautiful on your big day. Our Melbourne bridal store is an inclusive, accepting space that allows for a fun, exciting experience.

From the moment you step through our doors, you become an integral part of the creative process. You get the opportunity to be part of every stage of your custom wedding dress creation, from initial sketches to walking down the aisle. With detailed craftsmanship and an expert eye for design, work with d’Italia to create a dress that feels like magic.

Let’s begin…

We craft the dress of your dreams and bring your vision to life through bespoke design and attention to detail.

Designing your own wedding dress allows you full control over the style and fit of your gown. The perfect dress for the perfect day.

d’Italia’s exclusive collections of wedding gowns are passionately designed and created with the finest fabrics. Our collections push the bounds of design, bringing together timeless beauty with modern elegance.

The d’Italia Process.

No designer fees. Affordable pricing. Made for you. Your journey to walking down the aisle in the dress of your dreams begins here. Through our detailed process, we work with you to bring your vision to life. To assist in envisioning your dress, we welcome you to try on gowns from our signature d’Italia collection, Curate by d’Italia. This limited collection of elegant pre-made gowns allows you to experience our wedding dresses—and you may just fall in love.


Your journey begins at our Melbourne bridal store with your personal design consultant. This obligation-free consultation allows you to explore the possibilities and allows our designers to understand your vision.


During your consultation, our designers will create initial sketches of your dress and help you select the perfect fabrics.


Once your design is finalised, it’s off to our seamstresses to go from sketch to reality.

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.


Not at all. The only difference is that a plus size wedding dress is created to flatter a curvier figure. The d’Italia team will take your measurements and ensure that the dress flatters your body shape in all the right places. Our dressmakers bring your dream gown to life, creating gorgeous gowns that celebrate your figure. Curvy brides can feel classy, elegant and most importantly comfortable on their wedding day with exquisite couture designs from d’Italia.

Yes, we create couture outfits for the mother of the bride. We understand that every bride wants her mother to look amazing on her big day, while still complementing the bride’s own style. More importantly, we want the mother of the bride to feel confident and beautiful. We offer a range of styles, fabrics and silhouettes to suit every body type, budget and taste. Where ready-made mother of the bride outfits are often unglamorous and frumpy, at d’Italia we design contemporary couture outfits that will make the mother of the bride feel fashionable and luxurious without taking attention away from the bride. We also offer mother of the groom outfits to ensure the wedding party looks cohesive and stylish.
