The latest bridal trend taking brides by storm are Ombre Wedding Dresses. For brides looking for alternative wedding ideas the ombre wedding dress is the perfect solution. Brides can really have fun with this look while still keeping the traditional white wedding dress at the core.
Darker ombré colours such as purple, black and blue can really give a gothic vibe for a more unconventional wedding. This is a great twist for brides that really want a non traditional wedding dress. For a softer look I also love the paler pastel ombré colours which really add a feminine modern twist to a traditional wedding.
Ombre Wedding Dress colours?
An ombre wedding dress has a graduation of colour fading out to the natural dress. It can be deep colours, one colour, a mix of colours or pale colours – think watercolour effect. Typically this is an effect applied to the dress once it has been bought or you can find the finished wedding dress usually on handmade websites such as Etsy.
If this is the look you want make sure you ask a Dress alteration specialist about this service. It is not something you should DIY yourself. Etsy is a great source for shops providing this service.
However, I can also recommend Bexbrides who specialises in ombre wedding dresses, providing a colouring service on your dress as well as her own collection of wedding gowns.

Unconventional Wedding Dresses
One thing we are seeing is the formality of weddings giving way to a more laid back vibe. For some having a formal wedding ceremony and traditional sit down formal reception just doesn’t reflect modern couples today. Not to mention the cost of such stereotypical wedding events are very expensive. Instead couples are opting for more personal unconventional weddings where there are no rules. Therefore, it goes without saying that wedding dress trends would go the same way. The Ombre wedding dress takes centre stage at an alternative wedding and we think its a trend that is here to stay.
