Best of Kelly Faetanini’s Signature Ombre Wedding Dresses

Who remembers when jaws hit the floor in 2013 during the fall bridal market? This marked the first year that Kelly Faetanini’s signature ombre styling debuted. Lighting up the runway with whimsical personality, her gown with its unforgettable purple feather skirt became an instant viral sensation. Initially, ombre was considered for the bride looking more for an alternative wedding dress, but now brides really have fun with color and the ombre option has the ability to still keep the traditional white its core.

Not all of the ombre gowns are as dramatic as that first purple feathered frock – many feature romantic and subdued hues of ivory, blush, pink, grey and blue – but with that first daring design move, a Kelly Faetanini signature look was born. Today, our ombre styles include layers of ruffles, dramatic laces and fun feather skirts. They range from romantic and flirty to fun and classic. One thing is certain – they are always distinctive.

When you begin the wedding dress shopping experience, you will find that many words and phrases are tossed about when describing details and signature elements.  You’ll hear talk about unique whimsical touches, dramatic lace cutouts, sparking bling accents and other elaborate embellishments. And most top fashion designers will include several distinctive, notable elements in their collections time and time again, causing certain features to become associated with their name and their brand.

The same is true of Kelly Faetanini. Her beautiful gowns offer brides a classic styling with a modern twist. Many Kelly Faetanini gowns can be customized with a matchless ombre effect, adding lovely ivory-to-blush, pink-to-blue and other subtle yet fabulous use of color making these wedding gowns even more unforgettable. With unrivaled color effects and unequaled color techniques, Kelly Faetanini ombre gowns combine traditional looks and styling with trendy color application for a truly stunning bridal ensemble.
