The modern grade of the unconventional gowns, by Bahamian designer Phylicia Ellis, makes a bold and elegant statement, and island-inspired bouquets, with a color story in greens, lavender, yellow, and a taste of burgundy, remind brides that you can bring your culture into your wedding and still keep it current. Sophisticated jewelry calls to mind classic pieces with a modern twist.
A Phylicia Ellis bride is far from traditional, and with this collection, the designer experimented with scuba materials mixed with brocades, tulle, and ruffles. The results are airy and effortless bridal styles that are fun and also flirtatious and fun.
Unique Designs lend an extra touch of sparkle and drama to the modern bride who wants to shine on her day.
The bouquets hold a garden-style medley of roses, French dianthus, dahlias, and mini Callas accented with lush Ruscus. A whimsical touch of asparagus fern gives a light movement and feminine flair to bouquets finished with a satin ivory-and-white ribbon trim.
