A beautiful trend from America: ombre weddings!

What are Ombre Weddings?
Ombre is a French term which means gradually. Colours gradually pass into eachother. Ombre Weddings are weddings in which you gradually pass the colours of the syling into eachother. You can pick one colour, but also a colorful palette...what you love most!

What to pay attention to in your styling?
It is important that colours truly gradually pass into eachother. If you make use of small vases, the flowers have to be put very close together. It is possible to have round tables, but long tables are fine too. How you put the flowers depends on the shape of the table. For example, a round centerpiece on a round table and one long lane of flowers on a long straight table.

Where to make use of ombre?
Clothing: your wedding dress, dresses of the bridesmaids, ties of the man
