Crossing into Wedding Trends: The Ombre

Last week I blogged about this year’s Pantone Color of the Year, Emerald Green. But what other trends does 2013 have in store for the wedding world.  Blackbride.com blogs, “One of the hottest wedding trends right now is Ombré. For your wedding this trend is very simple to use with various shades of color.”

Reed goes on to define this trend for us, “ombre is a french term that means appearance of tones, with colors graduating from light to dark.” Ombre has been gaining popularity for the last year or so and now has broken into other areas of fashion and style such as decor, accessories, attire and weddings.

Ombre is a concept that can be styled into your wedding theme for a fresh, fun look.  Incorporate it into bridal wear, accessories and decor items.  Ombre’s popularity breeds endless, fabulous DIY project ideas to make a statement and add personalization to your special day.

Bridal Ombre.  Getting back to it’s roots, ombre originated as a hairstyle trend.  Talk to your stylist on how to get the perfect sun kissed ombre locks.  Go bold with an ombre toned wedding gown or for a quieter statement incorporate graduating tones into accessories like a hand clutch.

Ombre Decor.  Wedding cakes are a hot ombre trend.  Go with a sleek, simple tiered cake and add a soft ombre or stylemepretty.com’s teal, ruffled ombre wedding cake plays with color and texture.  Dress up any surface with an ombre effect from the ceremony aisle with densely scattered flower petals to DIY hand died  ombre reception table linens.
