I’m all about finding new trends and looking for them in every aspect of design. Last week, my sister and I were watching some E! news show and we were both in love with the ombre coloring that Giuliana Rancic had going on in her hair. Her hair fades from rich brown roots, to ashy brown in the middle and the ends are colored a golden blond color. In French, the word “ombre” translates to “shaded.” It’s used when a color starts off deep and saturated, and gradually fades into lighter or whiter color. I just love it and lately, I can’t get enough of it….so of course, I had to incorporate it with some wedding inspiration!

Check out Giuliana’s hair. I feel like I should apologize for the boobalicious-ness in the photo in advance.


Here are a few of my favorite ombre things:

I also love love love Gwen Stefani’s wedding gown, which fades from white into a rich fuchsia. Can someone please make this gown, but instead of fading into pink, fade into cream/taupe? Please and thank you ahead of time.


Don’t you just love that wedding dress?! It’s pink and fun, but not overly so. The girl clearly has great taste.

Martha Stewart Weddings jumped on the ombre trend train too, with these beautiful cakes that fade from peachy cream to a nice blush color.


I’m also loving these ombrified wedding invites from Minted. How perfect are they?! Subtle and elegant, but also very fun and unique!


And lastly, this is my favorite ombre trend of all time. I’m doing this to my nails this week. What do you think? Would you rock this manicure at your wedding? I know I would!


Are you all ombre-d out now? I know I just can’t get enough of this!

  • I'm pretty sure "ombre hair" just means you need your roots done. But I LOVE those minted invites. AWESOME.

      hahaha. that's true. now if women need their roots done they can just say "oh, it's ombre hair!" i still love it though!

  • I googled "ombre nails" and found this. I think I like it even better! I think I'm going to try it as soon as I have my shellac taken off. 🙂
