With a “Best Day Ever” theme, and a blue ombre wedding gown, this wedding on our wedding blog today is full of fun and flair! The bride in her ombre gown was backed by a beautiful blue bridal party all donning different dresses. The jewel toned bouquets and arrangements looked bold and rich against the blue details and natural mountain setting, and we think it all came together flawlessly! Here’s what the creative bride had to say about skipping tradition in favor of a wedding all her (and her groom’s!) own. Oh! And how she made her awesome escort card display!
I chose a monochromatic blue color scheme because it was a vibrant contrast against the natural greens and browns of the venue. I wanted a glamorous affair set in a natural setting, and the gold table runners set on my farmhouse tables were the perfect juxtaposition. I chose bold jewel tones for the bouquets and centerpieces which looked warm against the navy and royal blue bridesmaid dresses and dinner napkins.
I originally wanted a completely non-traditional gown, but was convinced by my sweet and traditional mom to wear white. It is, after all, the only time you get to be a bride with a big white gown, being the center of attention. I tried on the gown begrudgingly as I didn’t want a mermaid style, but was immediately in love with it; I remember skipping through the store. It was a beautiful gown but was simply missing something. I asked if the designer would be able to dip the bottom blue, and after many drawings and re-designs, I ended up with my dream wedding gown. I wanted the gown to be the main event and didn’t want to over-power it with a belt or veil, so I wore simple vintage studs and a small flower crown that my florist crafted day-of. It was a last minute decision but ended up being one of my favorite parts of the look.
My favorite detail was my escort card display, which was also the most inexpensive element. I gathered 170 blue paint samples from Lowes and simply wrote the guests name and table numbers in a white paint pen. They were orgainsed in an ombre pattern and each color had a fun paint name like “beach towel” and “emerald sparkle”. The ombre pattern ended up looking like a work of art which was amazing considering it was a collection of free Behr paint samples. I loved it.
