Many of today’s brides are considering getting away from the pure white or ivory wedding gown in favor of more colorful options. Ombré dyed gowns have been making their debut on the runway and all over picture pinning websites such as Pinterest. The dip-dye technique seems to be everywhere including the fashion runway and the pink wedding gown of singer Gwen Stefani.
One California artist made a trend of her own wearing a second hand that she customized by dying it to match her pink, blue and purple ombré hair. The artist and bride, Taylor Ann, 24, wanted to make the hem of her dress resemble the colors of a sunset in the wood by utilizing a palette of burnt oranges, reds, and deep purples in succession and used the same color theme throughout her wedding colors.
Chronicling the entire process on her blog, Taylor Ann found the too-big gown at a discount store and chronicled its transformation on her blog. Her first airbrush attempts were met with trepidation and within the first few minutes, she thought she might have ruined her dress. Taylor Ann took a break of took a few days before gathering the courage to return to the project. After a lot of time and patience and three layers of airbrushed paint applied to each layer of fabric, she came out with just the right color gradient that she was after.
The splash of color of Taylor Ann’s dress held next to her side-braided hair and other wedding décor is truly reflective of her. Against the backdrop of Lake Arrowhead, the effect is nothing less than stunning.
