The ombre effect has been hitting the wedding scene by storm and is now one of the hottest trends. Ombre is french for shaded and the effect refers to the romantic watercolor look when soft, pale hues gradually progress into full, vibrant shades.  If you envision having a very chic and whimsy wedding, this multicolor gradient look is a perfect addition to your decor. It can be incorporated in just about any part of your wedding from the bridesmaids dresses to the centerpieces. Here are some great ideas to inspire your own ombre effect!

With summer in full bloom, what better way to take advantage of the amazing Californian weather than to have lawn games at your wedding. Some game ideas include mini golf, horseshoes, bocci ball or even badminton. They are a great way to help your guests let their hair down, get to know one another and keep entertained during cocktail hour while you are getting your photos. They also make great photo ops with adorable signage and vintage game sets. Have fun!

With summer just around the corner, what better way to celebrate the season than with sugared fruit centerpieces at your wedding. You can sugar just about any fruit from lemons, strawberries, cherries, apricots and pears. All you need is to beat up some egg white and coat the fruit either half or completely. Then roll the fruit in course white sugar and leave on a bed of sugar to dry. They will definitely add that touch of sweetness and sparkle to your wedding.
