Ombre Wedding Trend

Ombre, otherwise known as a French term meaning “shaded” is one of Springs hottest fashion trends this year.  As models sport the multicolored apparel, which consists of shades graduating from light to dark, brides too will be incorporating the colorful trend.  The soft and subtle look is elegant and perfect for a spring/summer wedding.  Brides that desire a combination of light and rich hues will love the contrast ombre exudes.

There are several sophisticated ways to incorporate the look into your wedding.  For example, you could choose a wedding gown  or bridesmaid dress with an “ombre” effect.  The look is simply stunning in gowns as it transforms from a light and airy nature, to a rich saturation of darker hues.  If you prefer not to go this route consider tying the look into your accessories, cake, and even flowers.  We’ve put together a few ideas below for a variety of inspirational ways to incorporate the Ombre effect into your big day! Enjoy!
