Welcome to Party Simplicity’s latest design challenge: ombre bridal shower invitations!
What is ombre you ask? Ombré (om·bré) is actually a word of French origin. It means having colors or tones that shade into each other or in which the color is graduated from light to dark. It is a gradual change in shade from light to dark or from one color to another. It is much like a gradient and may be done as a yarn dye or in printing. It often creates a striped effect.
Ombré has become popular in weddings and wedding showers. You’ll often see the effect being used in cakes and floral arrangements. In wedding and bridal shower invitations, it will often be expressed as a true gradient with colors shown shifting from one to the next. While these invitations can look pretty, I wanted to see if we could come up with some ombre inspired bridal shower invitation designs that were a bit more outside the box. So, this is what inspired the idea of this design challenge for our Party Simplicity designers. I tasked our designers to come up with one unique ombré bridal shower invitation design… in any color they wanted. They only had to keep within the spirit of ombré for their designs.
Check out the designs our designers came up with. Each one had quite a different take on the theme and we have quite a variety to show you! Here are the results from our talented Party Simplicity designers.
If you are thinking of having an ombré themed bridal shower, maybe you’ll want to use one of these ombré bridal shower invitation designs. Just click on the image to get to the product page where you can personalize the text and purchase them.
If you like a design and want matching products (perhaps words of advice, recipe cards, bingo cards, thank you cards, stamps, stickers, or favors), you can also contact the designer of the invitation to see if they can make that product for you. Our designers are also happy to do any color changes for you, so don’t hesitate to ask. The contact information is on the product page of each invitation.
