Color Splash: Ombré

We just love, love, love ombré! While the word is actually French for shaded or graduated color, ombré makes us want to shout “olé!” because it is so festive. Incorporating ombré is a great way to bring in a monochromatic color palette in a fun and interesting way. While the look is fun, it can also be very elegant! Check out all of these gorgeous ideas!

From baby pink to coral to hot pink, there are so many shades of pinks, your options are virtually endless!

A blue ombré color palette can be just stunning!

LOVE these gorgeous earth tones! Cream, yellow, peach, orange, taupe and brown combine to make a very warm color palette!

Purple is still huge - what a gorgeous way to use it!

These greens and teals are so cool and fresh! Perfect for spring and summer!

You can even do ombré with a combination of colors, giving your wedding a more rainbow theme, a great option for the whimsical bride!

What do you think of ombré, ladies? Anyone planning to incorporate it in your wedding?

The Spring 2012 collection is now in store, and our staff and clients have been going crazy over them!

These gorgeous dresses, featuring tons of the fashion details we raved about here, are so stylish and versatile that they truly can be worn again after the wedding! We especially love those rich jewel tones which offer a great alternative to the LBD for your next cocktail party!

Lazaro and Tara Keely Fashion Show Recap

As we kick off another exciting weekend of wonderful trunk shows, we wanted to share with you a little recap of the fabulous Fashion Show we hosted when the incredible Lazaro Perez was here with his collections.

Glamour and drama was the theme during an evening of fashion, food and fun as we showcased nine chic styles from the 2012 spring line of Tara Keely bridal gowns and two dozen show-stopping Lazaro bridal gowns, also of the spring 2012 collection. The elegant fashion show was modeled after the runway shows we attend in New York during Bridal Market. The intimate show gave our attendees an up-close look at the gowns’ sumptuous fabrics, exquisite beading and embroidery and the impeccable fit Lazaro is known for.

Several brides enjoyed appointments with the renown designer and were thrilled to find THE GOWN perfect for each of them with his assistance. Brides were blessed with a rendering of their gowns sketched by Lazaro on the spot – what an awesome keepsake!
We LOVE the emotion on this bride’s friend’s face; it says it all! (and look at Lazaro's expression as he watches - you can tell he truly loves his work!)

Here are a few fun photos of our team with the incomparable Lazaro!
The whole gang! It was an honor to meet this bridal fashion icon!
Our fearless leaders - Marsha and Jenny with Lazaro.
Our own adorable and talented Michelle Green with Lazaro. Michelle was the mastermind of this incredible event. Kudos, Michelle; you outdid yourself!
