Who are Elysee ?
Elysee launched in 2019 as part of the Bridal Collective group which includes iconic bridal brands Enzoani, Blue by Enzoani and Badgley Mischka, all of which are internationally renowned for their amazing bridal style and exceptional fit of dresses. We were so excited to have this new bridal brand in store and were not disappointed ! Taken from the Ancient Greek word Elysium meaning a place or state of perfect happiness, Elysee uses modern silhouettes which accentuate your figure and contour your body whilst taking style inspiration form neoclassical art and architecture to create contemporary, romantic wedding gowns which will make you look and feel amazing on your wedding day.
It’s all about the details - How to get a designer bridal look on a budget
Elysee are the best bridal brand for designer style at a purse friendly price point. We love the figure hugging Athenais wedding dress which embodies new bridal trends with elegant off shoulder detachable tulle straps and illusion corset back detailing. This mermaid style wedding dress combines floral lace embroidered with delicate sequins with super soft layers of tulle and luxury french Chantilly lace in the bodice and dramatic sculpted train for a subtle all over shimmering sparkle. Available in a choice of ivory/ivory or ivory/nude this dress is perfect for modern romantic brides.
Less is more - Make a statement in style when saying ‘I do’
Elysee have perfected simple wedding dresses which are elegantly designed with clean, sleek lines for a sophisticated silhouette. One shouldered dress Victorie is a minimalist brides dream in figure hugging crepe with contemporary asymmetric illusion back detailing. We love love love this dress on its own but did we mention there is the option to add a matching crepe cape with a dramatic lace edge train ? Perfect for winter weddings and brides who want to make a statement when walking down the aisle.

Your wedding day may quite possibly be the most you are photographed ever so it is reassuring to know that you look good from every angle .
