Vintage Wedding Dresses

Beautiful fabric and lace — simply perfect for a vintage-inspired gown.



Vintage is classy, elegant, sophisticated and feminine. Our vintage wedding dresses combine contemporary silhouettes, feminine details and luxurious fabrics- perfect for the modern bride. We design gowns for brides looking for elegant wedding dresses with a modern twist. Using 100% pure silks the softest of laces, all our designs  are custom made for each and every bride. d’Italia carries a select range of the most beautiful French laces in vintage styles, including pure silk laces which are soft and delicate, with intricate and elaborate scalloped borders. The colour of a vintage wedding gown is a feature, as the whole essence must be that the silks and lace do not appear to be brand new – rather, they give the illusion of having a history.

Our European laces come in vintage oyster, crème and delicate ivories to replicate that vintage air. At d’Italia you get your dream vintage wedding dress using the finest quality fabrics and intricate vintage styled laces.
