It’s Ombré, Hombre.

It’s hot. It’s happening. It’s colorific fantastickness (it is so a word) that’s all over everything fashionable. That includes weddings.

It’s ombré. It’s everywhere. In case you need to know exactly what we’re talking about?

ombré noun

Having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.

Here’s some more examples…


Rose petals down the aisle. Thanks to The Martha.

Tea-stained escort cards.


Invitations via Etsy seller Whitney Rae Paper.


Ombré bouquet from Lauryl Lane Botanical Stylist.

A little ombré fascinator I’m working on for TruLu Couture.


Love the simplicity of this pretty little cake via Balancing Bites.


White to dark ivory wedding gown via NY Mag.

One thing about the look is: don’t ombré do it. You don’t want everything to be ombré . Choose an aspect – like all your paper products. Or the flowers. You might also consider a few separate things, like the cake and the invitations, using a color or two plus an accent as a whole story. Remember, it’s FIVE COLORS!

And remember the definition? It’s light to dark. That doesn’t mean a rainbow. People are calling stuff ombré that not’s really ombré.

I’m just sayin’.

Be careful with the color choice, keep it simple. Less is more in this case! You can follow a trend without being trendy.

What do y’all think? I’m loving the really soft ombré, not so much the bright stuff.

In response to us teaching Connor to pray this is just how we feel. I know everyone has their own opinions but its more about routine, setting aside personal time for God, allowing him to participate in prayer (despite that he probably doesnt understand it), building that foundation that as he begins to understand he realizes that we are sinful and we need God's forgiveness (even though God already says He forgives us), and it helps with attention, pronunciation, and learning. All things a child learns is from mimicking and being a "parrot"
in reality "worry" is a very real thing. Despite the fact we have a loving Savior, we are also told to fear God. Our sin is real and something we should be cognative of, but blessed enough to know that God does forgive us and we should rejoice in knowing this. Thus, the celebration when we say "Amen!"
