O is for Ombré (Part 1)

Ombrehaving colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark

I'm so not over Ombre!  I know the Ombre hair style has had it's day in the sun and we are seeing less and less of the dark roots with light ends.  Although this trend is fading out (literally) of the fashionable Hair World, it's alive and kicking in the Wedding World.  I have not had a Ombre theme at a party I've coordinated so I hit the world wide web and my favorite online store to see what the buzz is all about.  There is a mecca of cool ideas and I couldn't pick just a couple examples to share with you so I decided to run the gamet with a 3 Part Series.  Today I'm showcasing awe-worthy A-M Ombre,  Part 2 will feature neat picks from N-Z. Part 3 will be a DIY Rustic Radiant Orchid Ombre Cake that I baked myself.  Well, here we go...


Aisle Runner

I love how the color gets more intense the closer you get to your Groom.  Petal Runners by PetaleDeRose are extra unique because you get to pick the number of colors, what those colors are and how long the total runner is.  You can't get more cutom made than that!

When shading through so many colors you really create a defined and dramatic affect.  Also using various textures it gives depth and makes it interesting.

Infinity Scarf

If ya'll have been following me at all you know I LOVE scarves.  I think they add depth to an outfit, are functional and make great gifts.  It's easy to buy a great scarf for your Bridesmaids, such as this one from  , because no matter if they are petite or plus size it's sure to fit.  Plus, if you get it in a color scheme that compliments their dress they can wear them as the night gets chilly.
