As you are in the throes of wedding planning at this very moment, you have probably already come across many pictures of wedding ideas that incorporate color in creative ways. It may be so many ideas out there that you find yourself even more torn about the way you would love to integrate your main color schemes into your wedding décor. Is it going to be too much color? Is it not going to be enough color? These are the questions that may be running through your mind.
I’m here to tell you that you can have the best of both worlds when it comes to adding the right balance of color! Today, I want to give you an exclusive look at the ombre beach wedding inspiration that we are serving up.
The word “ombre” itself is a word derived from the French, which literally means “to shade”. In the early 19th century, the ombre technique was used for printing and textile treatments. In more recent years, the art of ombre has been made more popular as a famous hair coloring technique used by stylists from all over to give clients more dimension to their new ‘dos. However, the ombre trend now goes beyond those things and has become an all-round go-to styling technique for graphic designs and even immaculate baked goods creations!
The origins of ombre will certainly surpass any initial assumptions as this being just another type of gradient for sure. Ombre has also extended to the interior design world, combining different material and fabrics together to display a gradual progression of color; from light to dark or vice versa.
For ombre beach wedding inspiration, you can use this same technique and get creative with how this particular art of shading and blending colors can really help enhance the style of your big day!
If you’re not quite sure how to integrate this technique into the parts of your wedding planning and designing that counts, you’re definitely in for a treat (and some much-needed guidance, I’m sure!) Let’s explore the many ways you can try ombre out for your wedding, shall we?
You Are Cordially Invited…
Although invitations may seem unthreatening due to their small sizes, they are definitely not insignificant by a long shot! Your wedding invitations are an extension of you and your hubby-to-be, as you both are creating a welcoming vibe to your big day. Not to mention your invitations give a subtle hint to the theme of your upcoming wedding.
Some awesome color choices to consider for your beach wedding would be shades that reflect the environment you’d be in. Try light, but cool shades of blue or turquoise to represent the seas, warm shades like oranges and reds that are symbolic of the sun rising and setting, and loving shades of corals and pinks reminiscent of seashells.
Here Comes the Bride! All Dressed In…Ombre?
With a beach wedding, you’re almost certain to get a little sand in the train of your dress. So why not make it worthwhile and create an ombre effect with your dress that would give it an interesting pop?
With the ombre style, you can choose from a variety of light fabrics and textures like chiffon and ruffles so that the graduated shades naturally flow to the bottom. With very light shades of blues, greens and pinks, the effect of walking down the aisle and frolicking along the shore with the ombre style will make it look as if you’re turning into a mermaid! The bonus? Your bridesmaids and flower girls can get in on the action too!
50 Shades of Jewelry
Don’t listen to those that tell you that it’s impossible to achieve the ombre style in your jewelry. Those people just don’t know style! Because ombre is the perfect balance of shaded hues, you can add the same effect to your accessories. Add just the right touch with a nice ombre necklace and a bracelet to match, or even just a bracelet and earrings combo.
After making sure your ombre jewelry set is picked out, you can also pick out pieces for your bridesmaids whether their dresses are ombre or not! Either way adds cohesion to the style of the bridal party as a whole.
Ombre Encore Décor
Perhaps one of the biggest parts of your wedding planning will be concentrated in your wedding decor for after the ceremony. This is the part of your wedding where everyone will be able to celebrate your new union with you. Likewise, you want them to be comfortable, relaxed and in awe of the experience you create with the designs and colors you use. You can use ombre sparingly by featuring it in the napkins or go all out with allowing the ombre to explode with color on all the table and chair setups.
Floral Bouquet of Ombre
Your bridal party’s look is not quite completed without a handful of exquisite floral arrangements to walk down the aisle with! Roses are a perfect choice to achieve the ombre style with, as they come in so many beautiful shades! Because of this, you’ll be able to add even more shades to create your very own ombre effect for your bouquet and the bouquets of your bridesmaids.
Don’t be surprised if you catch yourself or your guests being completely mesmerized by the hues! These bouquets are definitely something you want to preserve through the years!
Deliciously Blended Cakes
Last but not least, it’s time to cut the cake! To finish off your fabulously ombre-styled beach wedding, you can enjoy the fruits of your labor with a cake that is just as gorgeous as your invitations! With the ombre style, you really don’t have to add any extra embellishments, as the shaded hues make for a scrumptious display. To continue the effect, you can apply it to the inside of your cake for a lovely surprise!
