Minimal lines, asymmetries and elegant looks, the Max Mara bridal-wear best represent the elegance and modernity of the brand that unites in the bridal collections the wearability of its prêt-à-porter clothes and the sartorial quality with which they are made, fundamental characteristics that contribute to making the wedding day unique and unforgettable.
