Today’s gorgeous and colorful wedding decor ideas are inspired by an unforgettable wedding dress! Heather’s Badgley Mischka blue ombre wedding gown was part of her Rajasthan, India inspired celebration a few years back, and it remains one of the most memorable wedding dresses we’ve shared on Junebug. I love ombre’s soft fade of color, and luckily, ombre wedding decor and fashion are everywhere this spring, so we have lots to share with you today…
The word ombre is French for “soft gradual tones of color or shading“, and what a great approach to pretty wedding day beauty as well! Nordstrom has ombre covered in their beauty department. Chanel Quadra Ombres Eyeshadow has four beautiful shades of pink and plum for your eyes, and The New Black nail color kits make ombre nails super easy! Nordstrom also carries ombre ponytail holders by L.Erickson in enough colors that they’re sure to have the ones your bridesmaids would need during a fun night of dancing!
Pink and peach are always pretty, but using them in soft, graduated shades just heats up their romance factor! Clockwise from upper left: Champagne pink and peach wedding cake by Martha Stewart Weddings; a peach ombre napkin diy project with super easy instructions from This Is Glamourous; cherry blossom and chestnut macarons from Canelle et Vanille; ombre rose petal wedding ceremony aisle decoration from Martha Stewart Weddings.
Rich, decadent jewel tones! Clockwise from upper upper: lovely ombre silk rehearsal dinner or bridesmaid dress from Nicole Miller at Zappos.com; a sweet wedding cake with ombre sugar hearts by Erica OBrien Cake Design; darling party forks from MademoiselleChipotte on Etsy.com; and earrings of amethyst, garnet and topaz by Livjewellery on Etsy.com.
And if you’re still thinking about Heather’s blue wedding dress too, here’s some inspiration in gorgeous shades of blue! Clockwise from upper left: blue and green chandelier earrings from Kendra Scott at Nordstrom.com; blue ombre bridesmaid’s dress from Dessy. Isn’t this bench from Anthropologie fabulous? It would make the sweetest special love seat to sit at while eating your reception dinner, or a fantastic seat for guests in your photo booth! And after the wedding, you’d have a beautiful (ombre!) memento of your special day. Turquoise ruffled cake from Wild Orchid Baking Company.
