We absolutely love the latest trend for ombre bridemaid dresses hot off the catwalk by Sorella Vita. The phone has been ringing off the hook at Limelight with brides enquiring when these gorgeous dresses will be available. Good news girls – they started arriving today and the four colours currently available are glorious! Ombre offers style-savvy brides the opportunity to bring the perfect touch of personality and individuality to the wedding party with that all important nod to effortless co ordination. The ombre fabric is exclusively custom dyed for Sorella Vita and we especially like Lavender Fields which offers a rich soft purple through to lavender. For an ultra feminine look with real edge and a wonderful depth of colour mix and match ombre styles with a solid shade in the same colour palette.
Ombre offers tantalising opportunities for creative brides to incorporate hints of colour into other areas of the wedding while keeping the over all look subtle and fresh.Take a look at the Essense pinterest board for inspiration
Perfectly named By The Sea is a dream in shades of blue. We think ombre works really well in a combination of long and short styles and as Sorella Vita have produced ombre fabrics for eight designs, each bridesmaid can choose the design which most flatters her figure whilst wearing the hottest trend of the season.
Maid Your Way is the perfect way to style your all your bridesmaids individually – with two straps, halter neck, one strap, no straps! With one dress, your bridesmaids can drape, twist, or wrap the gown to create more than 18 different looks. Available in all four ombre colours the options for styling are inspirational. For styling ideas, watch the video at:
For the ultimate in sophistication combine different styles in ombre Nightfall with solid black or charcoal, add statement accessories and you have the perfect look for city chic or a black tie wedding.
Or reflect the ombre trend with carefully chosen solid shades in graduated within the colour palette – fresh & exciting – true aisle style!
the number of options is truly inspirational.
