Few options are prettier for a summer wedding palette than an ombre gradient of citrus to berry hues. Or what we like to imagine as ‘popsicle’ and ‘sorbet’ colors! And what would those be? Why, pink to fuchsia to orange, of course! It may seem like a lot going on. But with the season being so sunny and festive, now is the time to bring on the colors. So we found these gorgeous ideas for how to apply the ombre effect in selected elements—from the ceremony to your guest tables to your favors!
A Summer Palette with Elegant Possibilities
1 – The bridal bouquet is a fabulous opportunity to go ombre through flowers! This oh-so-romantic arrangement we found via a real wedding on 100 Layer Cake is a perfect model—and is just one among the gorgeous ombre applications you can swoon over in this feature!
2 – Other decorative ombre accents to consider would be garlands, pompoms, ribbon streamers, and the like. Thanks to etsy stores like Dancing Mooney that offers this paper garland in peach, pink, and coral, you can find charming and quite affordable pieces!
3 – What better place to have that delectable color shading than on your wedding cake? This example from Le Delicieux uses bands of pink, fuchsia, and orange frosting for a simple yet so sweet effect.
4 – Bridal accessories offer another chance to play with color shadings. How creative is this bride’s umbrella, found via the One Wed photo archive, wrapped in strips of fabric in these summery sorbet hues? Love it!
5 – Mustn’t forget favor packaging! Something as simple as switching box lids and bottoms, as in these silk two-tone favor boxes by Designed by Christina, works beautifully. Just tie on coordinating ribbons and you’ve got the ombre effect!
6 – Get your bridesmaids into the ‘ombre act’ with dresses selected precisely for this range of colors. Stumbled upon this image via Pinterest, and thought how doable this would be…and delightful in photos, too!
7 – As if being wed in Paris weren’t enough of a dream in itself, the venue, decorations, and florals in this elegant wedding via Elizabeth Anne Designs make it even more so! This lovely peony centerpiece in ombre pink, peach, and fuchsia is a mere ‘sneak peek’ for you to visit the full post.
8 – Your wedding sweets table can bring on the color gradient so stylishly! Just see how this modern bridal shower dessert display spotted in the Catch My Party gallery did it. Baked goodies to candies galore—all in the pink, peach, fuchsia range. Yum!
LOVE those colors together!!
