“Simple” means that there is little or no embellishment. The beauty of the gown relies heavily on the silhouette, the lines, the perfect fit and the quality of the fabric & dressmaking that enhance the wow-factor of the finished look.  It’s a style that’s timeless, chic and glorious in its simplicity. Brides who aren’t fond of embellished gowns can still look fabulous by using wedding accessories to make a statement like teaming a simple wedding dress with a full-length veil or sparkling tiara.

The creation of simple styles directly from images or sketches is simple for d’Italia’s elite team of bridal couturiers, as their level of expertise means that they can accurately replicate any style with their own hand-crafted patterns. This also means that brides can dictate what they would like to add or change about a style they have chosen.
