Illusion necklines are to die for in this collection. Ellis Bridals’ fashion team debated long and hard over just which one to pick (there were many favourites) but in the end this simplicity and contemporary illusion necked gown was the winner. Elegance is expertly combined with style in this sleek Ellis Bridals ballgown. Distinctive cut-out lace adorns the neckline, carefully placed to create a beautiful floral piece. The full skirt is crafted from luxurious satin, layered with tulle and hand-placed beaded lace. This beaded lace detail continues across the dress, catching the eye as you move. A wedding dress unlike any other. It was made for an effortlessly swept up hairdo and it leaves your arms free for diamond adornment!
Are you channeling winter glam? Perfect for early January or spring weddings when there is still a nip in the air, try this sleeved lace and satin Ellis Bridals gown. Contemporary and elegant, this design reimagines the ballgown. In a cascade of pleated satin, the skirt is simply unforgettable. The sweetheart bodice is covered by wide neckline illusion lace sleeves and back. The wide satin belt shapes the figure, while subtle pockets ensure stylish convenience for the modern bride. Never forget the importance of a pocket! Keep your vows ready to hand, a chapstick or, if you’re like us at weddings, tissues for crying! The wide and flawless satin skirt of this dress was made to walk down the aisle in the pure grandeur of a stately home, church or botanic garden.
3D florals were simply breath taking at Bridal Fashion Week. They just breathe new life and energy into every wedding.

This divine A-line Ellis Bridals wedding dress is crafted from layers of floating dot tulle, layered with completely sweet beaded lace daisies. From the sweeping skirt to the sweetheart bodice and even along the slim straps, this dress is reminiscent of summer wildflowers. Bohemian elegance at its best. This dress just screams for a delicate, pale flower crown and floral accessories, tiny daisy earrings and complementary flower accents on your bridesmaids.
