The Story...

Welcome to Bellissima Bridal Boutique.

If you are visiting the boutique is because the big day is coming. Congratulations babe! I wish you all the happiness in the world.

Let me spend a few words to introduce myself. My name is Sara, I am from Italy, but I live in Australia since 2013.

I am the creative mind behind Bellissima, but first of all, I am a wife and a mum.

So thanks again for stopping by…I can’t wait to help you along the way to your special day!

The incredible journey that brings me to the creation of Bellissima started right after I gave birth to my little girl Giorgia.

One day I asked myself: “when was last time I felt the most beautiful looking at me in the mirror?” The immediate answer was “on my wedding day!”.
Well, I know this might sound a bit obvious, but, if you think about it, how many other occasions do you have to focus 100% on you, in your life?

That day I felt the most gorgeous girl in the world.

I loved the attention I was given. I loved how my girlfriends cuddled me before the special day. I liked how my mum and grandma helped me to dress up. I loved how my hair and makeup was done. I loved how emotional was my father leading me to the altar.
I loved how my husband looked at me all day.
And I felt gorgeous even when I cried dancing with my brother.

I want you – bride to be – to feel the same way, and I am sure you will.

I would love to help you to feel gorgeous before, during and after your wedding day.

BBB is designed for you

Bellissima Bridal Boutique is the results on months of research and selection of the best bridal and bridesmaid robes.

Bellissima is luxurious, feminine, elegant and designed to drape your body and make you feel beautiful instantly. My collection of bridal and bridesmaid robes includes unique pieces, selected satin fabrics and raffinate lace trims.

Bellissima’s collection is perfect to celebrate pre-wedding moments such as the bridal shower, to get unforgettable getting-ready photos with your mum, sister(s), bridesmaids or your little flower girls before the wedding and to feel beautiful every day after the big day.

You will not put your bridal robe in the wardrobe as the wedding dress (unfortunately this is its destiny). Your bridal robe will become one of your favourite items to wear hundreds of times because everytime you wear it you will feel that pleasant sensation of feminine and elegance and it will bring back love and memories of your big day. I promise.

I personally package every single robe in a gorgeous organza bag ready for you to unwrap and treat yourself or spoil with a perfect gift your lovely bridesmaids that took care of you along all the way. They deserve a piece of this journey too.

I have a gift for you

I am glad I got the most amazing video and photos of my wedding day because they are memories for life and every time I watch them it is like it was yesterday.
On the other hand, I don’t have as many photos as I wish of the bridal shower my bridesmaids organised for me of the incredible day spent in the spa, between the mountains, all surrounded by the snow.

I do not have pictures of my hair and makeup done in my beautiful bridal robe while dreaming, watching the snow fall from the window. I do not have enough photos of the morning I spent at home with my family before the ceremony. The time just flew, and it will never come back.

The moments you shared with your best friends and family, the parties they organise for you, the attention, the cuddles before those special days are full of joy and excitement as the wedding itself. These precious moments are all about you – the bride to be.

Time flies but memories last forever.

I want to give you a reason to get as many photos as possible to help you remember those feelings. This is my personal gift to you that will help to keep your memories safe. Send me your best photos of your moments with your family and friends, and I will prepare an elegant digital photobook for you.

I know the happiness this little gift will bring you, so I feel it’s the least I can do and. I’m sure, when you will look at it in 2/10/20 years time, you will be glad you got it.

If this is not enough, I will give you an extra discount if you want to have it printed for you or as a present to your bridesmaids.

I wish you all the best,
Sara

Did you know?

“Bellissima” is the Italian word for “very beautiful”.
As the Italian grammar is more complicated than what you can ever imagine, here is the explanation:
– bellissima – with the A at the end – is for female singular nouns like Annette is bellissimA.
– bellissimo – with the O at the end – is for male singular nouns like Daniel is bellissimO.
– bellissime – with the E at the end – is for female plural nouns like Annette and Clare are bellissimE.
– bellissimi – with the I at the end – is for male plural nouns like Daniel and John are bellissimI.

My wedding was celebrated during winter time, in Italy, the 15th of December 2012. It was an unusual date for a wedding, but I love the atmosphere before Christmas: the cold weather, the fireplace, the lights, the silver and the golden decorations, the trees and the snow. Well, the night before the big day I was lucky enough to get the most beautiful and romantic snowfall I’ve ever seen. When I woke up, it was a spectacular view.
Furthermore, on the wedding day, the sun shined an gave us an almost spring day. It is very unusual in northern Italy on the 15th of December!
Having the snow and that beautiful sun together was magic.

One of the models in the product images is me. Yep, I enjoyed going back to the pre-wedding moments. A special thank you to Grace and Sophia, they are absolutely stunning in the bridesmaid robe. To my little daughter Giorgia, she is still too young for the baby line, but she loved it anyway. To Twidale Hair and Makeup Studio that did a fantastic job. To Advantage Media for making my idea possible.
