If you’re trying to settle on your colour scheme then here’s an idea to put a twist on things. Ombré is a French word that means shaded or shadow. In terms of fabric, it means having a design where the colour is graduated from light to dark.
Style icon Gwen Stefani pioneered the ombré wedding trend when she married Gavin Rossdale back in 2002. She wore a custom-made pink ombré silk faille wedding dress by John Galliano for Dior. (See Gwen bottom left.)
As you can see, this soft fading or blending of colours isn’t just for fabric. You can use ombré colours on everything from your stationery to flowers to cake. I love the idea of ombré bridesmaid dresses where your girls are dressed in different shades of the same colour.
