Wedding Trend: Ombre Details

Ombre – oh how we love you! For those not familiar with the word, ombre is french for shaded – or maybe you thought ombre was a cowboy as my husband did until we were watching Project Runway a few weeks ago and he was so confused why a dress was called ombre and he didn’t see a cowboy. Pretty funny! Anyways, this has been a pretty big trend this summer and I’m predicting it will be even bigger this Fall. So many ways you could incorporate ombre into your wedding day! Some of my favorites…

If you love the idea of pink ombre, maybe your bridesmaids in pink ombre is the way to go! You could have them in this pink ombre dress from Dessy or have them each wear a different shade of pink like these bridesmaids (photographed by Jill Thomas) to create an ombre effect. :)
