We asked Alyssa of D’Italia five questions in five minutes:
What is the most important piece of advice you can give to engaged couples?
Getting engaged and planning a wedding is super exciting!! Make sure you have fun with the planning process otherwise it can get very tedious and not enjoyable. Brides need to try and stop putting so much pressure on themselves to have the most perfect wedding! Every wedding is different and unique in its own way and almost every wedding will also experience hiccups along the way. This is okay…in fact completely normal! Have fun and be true to yourself and you’ll have the most enjoyable time bringing your dream wedding to life!!
Tell us about a hidden talent you have?
Our small little team combined can speak 3 different languages!!
As a vendor, what excites you about the wedding day?
Seeing our bride’s happy and smiley faces in their gorgeous custom gown is always a massive highlight for us. We are all so passionate about designing beautiful dresses and being a part of such a memorable experience for couples. Our goal is to make our brides feel 1 in a million and exceptionally special! It’s always great to see our brides faces light up when they wear their custom wedding gown for the first time on their wedding day.
What are you known for?
At d’Italia we specialise in designing and creating stunning custom-bespoke bridal gowns from the most beautiful and unique fabrics from all over the world. We work with our brides one on one to create a sketch from all their ideas before we begin the exciting making process where your dress will be hand-made in our Melbourne-based studio. It’s a very special experience for everyone involved and a real joy to see our bride’s unique dress all finished and ready to be collected.
If you could choose a song to play for the rest of your life what would it be?
We all love a good Disney song! If we had to pick, it would have to be something like “A whole new world” where we can sing our hearts out over Karaoke. Shot gun Princess Jasmine’s part!
