The New ‘It’ Color: Gray Wedding Inspirations
Posted on October 28 2018
Grooms look so very handsome in grey tuxedos, so why do the grooms get all of the gray fun? This year the new ‘it’ color for brides is none other than gray. While the bride still might opt for a white or ivory wedding dress - the color gray allows you to really accent that white or a single favorite color like pink or yellow. Below are some beautiful ways we think you’ll be inspired by the color gray this wedding season.
For the ‘it’ grey decor think grey matte linens accented with bright whites and metallics like silver or gold. You can go rustic with your look and add greenery as a table runner to give your reception tables a bit of texture, too. When it comes to accenting on grey with flowers try hydrangeas or even balls of baby’s breath or roses. The white will really make your grey linens pop.
Gray For The Bride
Don’t be afraid to go really feminine with white on white and pops of gray. For instance, we love the Ivory Boho Open Back Dress with a bouquet of baby white roses. Simply ask your florist for creative ways to add a few pops of grey to texturize the bouquet and you’ve got one stunning look.
For your bouquet try white garden roses and add dusty miller leaves that have a grey tint to them. We just love a grey accented bouquet on a white dress like the Wedding Ivory Wrap Maxi with Tulle. This dress creates a very romantic look amongst pops of gray. Of course, it will also look lovely with your bridesmaids dressed in the Urban Gray Backless Maxi!
Gray Wedding Treats
Incorporating gray into your wedding treats is an adorable wedding trick we absolutely love. Try a matte grey fondant, with Chantilly white icing, and gorgeous white roses to accent on your wedding cake. We just love this idea of a cake on a grey tablecloth with a simple, white lace doily - makes this gray really romantic and feminine. Instead of splurging on a five-tiered wedding cake, have a small cake and give out heart-shaped cookies iced in green and accent colors like pink, yellow, or blue - don’t forget to put your initials on there in a romantic way like K+B or J+S for loads of wedding fun.
