‘Opening up yet another fragment of the frontier of beauty….’
Continuing our efforts to explore stylish options for today’s bride, we are focusing on the Modern Bride. She’s a fashionista, stays up with the trends and loves making a statement. We chose Hotel Indigo in Athens for its sleek, urban design. The simple, geometric lines compliment her sleek, form-fitting mermaid gown from I Do I Do Bridal.
We chose to play off the pickups in the gown with an up sweep of her hair, finished with a cascade of gentle curls down her back, showing off lots of beautiful shoulder and skin. Sparkle is key, and the long ear rings and beautiful comb set off her dark complexion.
The flowers were kept simple, and sleek, a repeating theme, and European Floral’s choice of calla lilies was perfect. Graphic, yet elegant. Glass vases combined on the tables in interesting shapes with single blooms or stones or branches create interest on the tables and are don’t block any one’s view. Large silver branches in over sized containers provided another way to add silver and shimmer to the room simply and easily, but with big impact.
Our Modern Bride, played here by our lovely model, Sabrina, has fun with her perspective, and loves to be the center of attention. And in this stunning dress surrounded by these fabulous details and gorgeous architecture, she’s sure to make that happen.
