"I recently had the most amazing experience with d'Italia! After knowing exactly what I wanted in my dream wedding dress and not finding anything remotely similar in any bridal stores around Melbourne, I was very disappointed. I was told several times by Melbourne bridal retailers, that what I wanted to achieve was next to impossible, as it was too expensive and fabric impossible to come by. I then came across D'Italia and made an appointment where I was absolutely thrilled to find nothing but incredible service, being understood immediately about what I dreamed of for my dress, and finding the exact lace/beading that I had been looking for. This was an absolute dream come true as I was ready to give up looking, and compromise in settling for a dress which I would never have been as happy with. Not only did I find exactly what I wanted in d'Italia, but I received it at an exceptional price ($4,500)! I know that I would not have been able to find my dress in any bridal retailer for less than $10,000!!! Susanna was an incredible help, worked with me to design the silhouette, detailing and overall idea I had in my head and helped bring it to life! I was almost in tears with happiness and shock that this dream had actually come true! THANK YOU d'Italia for your exceptional service, incredible experience and making me truly the happiest bride in the world!! " - Felicity

"I am getting a bridesmaids dress made for a friends wedding, I am heavily tattooed and was concerned I wouldn't look elegant on the day. I also have absolutely no experience with this kind of thing... at all. Shuchi responded to my emails promptly and booked me in for an appointment with no dramas. She was so helpful with finding me a beautiful fabric that looked great against my skin (there are about a million shades of ivory, she found the right one). She listened to my budget requirements and we worked something out for a good price. I expected to feel very out of place but I couldn't have felt more comfortable."

"I had spent over three months looking for 'the dress', and could not find it anywhere. I had seen a few dress designers, but they wanted to charge an arm and a leg, then, I found D'Italia!! Great service, advice and a fraction of the price! The team is very knowledgeable and now I am able to have the dress that I love, instead of settling for something I like. Thank you so much d'Italia!" "

"I've been waiting to get the butterflies in my tummy excited feeling from knowing that I've ordered the dress of my dreams... finally I have it!! I would highly recommend meeting with Suzanna at d'Italia. Her expert advice, kindness and care made me feel so happy and confident that I will have my perfect wedding dress. Suzanna was amazing - she fitted in both my appointment and seamstress at short notice and the dress came in at such a reasonable price. Such beautiful silk, lace and beading, you know you are paying for quality at d'Italia. Thank you so much Suzanna!"
"I knew exactly what i wanted for a dress, but it was so far out of my budget that I would only ever be able to dream about it. I went to all the designer wedding dress shops in Melbourne looking for something with a similar look and lace, but there was just nothing that could manage to stretch my budget to. I went online and found d'Italia and saw the amazing dresses they created for fractions of the cost of a dress in a designer shop. I made a meeting with Suzanna, who made me relaxed and comfortable and welcome instantly. I showed her pics of the dress I wanted and how I would want it for myself. She knew exactly what i wanted and drew an image down for me. We discussed prices and I came back a couple of days later to have a look at fabrics. Suzanna surprised me by sourcing the exact lace in france that matched the lace in my photo. I was so excited! we came within budget and before the end of the day, I had ordered the most amazing lace and silk from France and Italy, met up with my dress designer, got measured up, and have booked dates for fittings. I was hesitant It would work being an interstate customer, and having my wedding in Thailand. But both suzanna and my dress designer, assured me all would work and work within my availability. Im so excited to get my dress and i cant believe Im going to get the dress I thought i would only dream about!"
"Friendly and helpful service from Suchi, she made our visit fun and easy. I can't wait to see how my dress turns out with the beautiful french lace we choose!" "
"Was lucky enough to get the dress I had imagined french lace, perfect fit in less than 3 months. Was made at below my budget which really shocked me. Easy to deal with, quick and professional with heaps of experience (you can tell) enjoyable process, highly recommend."
"I highly recommend you go to D'Italia if you are looking for your perfect wedding dress. I had the BEST experience there and I did not expect to find exactly what my dream dress was with all the fabrics available. Not only do they have wonderful and high quality fabrics, Suzanna at D'Italia provided me with excellent advice who also spent a lot of time with me to get my glamorous wedding dress in the making!! Keep up the fantastic work and thank you very much :)" "
