Italian Renaissance 
Wedding Gown

In order to show off their extraordinary wealth, the Italian nobles of the 15th century used huge amounts of fabric in their voluminous garments. It was not uncommon to use 10 yards of silk to make a chemise, with nearly half of that being used for the sleeves! This generous use of fabric plus the myriad of wonderful sleeve styles and ornamentation is what makes Italian Renaissance Wedding gowns so wonderful. They're comfortable, too, and are a favorite for wedding and bridesmaid gowns. Price range $350.00 and up.

Bianca - This fully-lined italian renaissance wedding gown is made of satin and brocade and trimmed with woven braid. The sleeves are chiffon, and the gown laces up the back. There is also a detachable train of embroidered chiffon.
