It can be difficult to find an unusual theme for your wedding, but an ombre theme is not one that most people think of. Here are some tips on how to create an ombre theme for your wedding.

Overview

When planning a wedding there are so many different options for themes and colour schemes that it can be difficult for a bride to choose. Many brides will want something different that is memorable and sets them apart from other brides. An ombre colour scheme is an unusual choice that not many other brides may have chosen and can be a beautiful effect. This is one of the hottest trends of the moment. Here is an explanation of what an ombre colour scheme is and how it can be successfully incorporated into your wedding.

What is Ombre?

This is a French term that means the appearance of tones that graduate from light to dark. Ombre can be differing shades of one colon or shades of colour that move from one colour, say yellow, to a different colour, such as pink. The effect gives the appearance of watercolours that have blended.

Bridesmaids or Attendants Dresses

One of the more obvious ways to incorporate an ombre scheme into a wedding is in the bridesmaid dresses. Take a look around bridal boutiques or check out some online stores to see if they have got anything that meets your needs in stock. If not, visit a fabric store and have the dresses specially made. This will mean that you will get the exact colour and design that you want.

Stationary

Many printers can incorporate an ombre scheme into any stationary, such as invitations and place cards. These can be designed in any shade you wish to coordinate with the rest of the colour scheme. Stationary can be further personalized by careful selection of the font size, style and wording.

Flowers

There are many flowers that naturally have an ombre effect with the tips of the petals a different shade to the main part of the flower and these are worth considering for both the bouquets and table decorations. Another option is to get dyed fabric flowers that can be custom made to suit your needs.

Decorations

The choice of decorations can add a real personal touch to your wedding and there are many options available. Banners are one options and these may be available from the same printer, stationer or wedding supplier who has created your stationary. Balloons are another option and there are many different colours available that can be chosen to match the colour scheme of the wedding.

Ribbons

Finally, ribbon can add a special touch to several different aspects of the wedding. These can include the clothing, the flowers and the decorations. A thorough search of different fabric stores, haberdasheries and online craft retailers should help you to discover a ribbon that will work well with the rest of your ombre scheme.

Now I just used Gold and Silver with White along with Orchids and resonated the feeling I had within me in a hope to create a dream life as wedding is just a licence to legitimise a legal standing to sleep with a man or a woman with a promise to remain monogamous for the rest of their being.
Now in todays day and age, a woman can use marriage as a tool or a weapon to be a legitimised slapper to change husbands in the name of love and above all search for one true being by sleeping with many i.e. multiple marriages without legality only to find their heart has hardened and their values of life diminished with low morality and broken spirit that results in fall in the quality of life in general not just of themselves and their marriage.

My wedding dress was a double layer total lace with a detachable train. Its just a symbolism of purity for a virgin getting married not a whore of today's world who dramatise purity when they have slept with many. I was a virgin when I got married. Now I am a Married Virgin because husband cheated went mad and now cohabitate with his mother and two sister in-laws who have dying husbands.

Be in love not in the concept of being in love and wearing a wedding dress. I wear such patterns all the time as a model and bridesmaids dresses too as they are great Victorian style evening wear. That is all that there is to it.

Men like demure women, but the one who treats them with love and care can be weighed in gold. 99.9% don't exist. I stand with the 0.1% who do but get hurt with the vamps and scumbags churned out with today's society.

Men get whores dressed as maidens and women get bastards with wagging tales who act distinguished after sleeping with many.
Men are getting experience while women get the word prostitute labelled to them.

Seen thin Lizzie??? Its make up that hides all. Just like the dress that symbolises personality and hides what needs to be hidden with character remaining the same. buy a dress that goes with character not because it looks good. Telling this as a fashion designer with my own designer label.

Now the flowers, choose ones based on their meanings as they have an interpretation and a symbolic meaning to the ceremony. Some flowers are meant specifically for funerals, others for symbolic sex, still others for spirituality, some for longitivity and marital bliss.
Essence is about figuring out which one they are. I chose orchids and they are Wild with a scent too. Violet and White and a real flower bouquet cascading down and decorated the premises the same way. I never used Roses as they are of the 7th Chakra.

Bridesmaids are also to be virgins not old hags in their lady bits.
My bridesmaids were virgins as with the flower girls.
