Vintage Wedding Dresses

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

At d’Italia you get your dream vintage wedding dress using the finest quality fabrics. If you need a bridal couturier we have an exclusive referral service. You are assured a beautiful wedding dress with the perfect fit.

When a bride has her heart set on a vintage style for her wedding gown, nothing else compares in the ready-made bridal boutiques.

Vintage is classy, elegant, sophisticated and feminine. d’Italia gets that. d’Italia can make a vintage style gown effortlessly.

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 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 French laces come in vintage oyster, crème and delicate ivories to replicate that vintage air.

For brides who have their hearts set on beaded vintage style laces, d’Italia also carries French hand-beaded Chantilly and Guippure laces, embellished with vintage-crème quality pearl and/or crystal beads and sequins. The range also extends to French hand-beaded silk and lace trims, and antique-style Swarovski crystal motifs.

The creation of vintage styles from images is simple for d’Italia’s elite team of bridal couturiers, as their level of expertise means that they can accurately duplicate 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.

What To Do Next

Call d’Italia now to arrange a one-on-one private consultation to discuss your requirements and get a costing for your wedding dress. Consultations are obligation free and free of charge.

Please note that because d’Italia is so popular for brides who want to make their own dress, the seamstresses are now taking bookings for mid-late 2016 completions. The earlier you book the more confidently we can secure you the most suitable seamstress for your style of gown and completion date. There are some places left for 2015 completions, but this can’t be guaranteed until you call us to find out availability.

Also, most of d’Italia’s laces take months to arrive from France once ordered - so the earlier you plan ahead, the better your chances of getting exactly the dress you’re dreaming of.
