Once a wallflower color stuck between the spaces of bolder neutrals and brighter colors, gray is now having its day! Gray wedding color schemes are rising in popularity and in style. We love the color for its ability to play up pastels and to soften into silver. Take our advice: it’s great to go gray!
Check out the color crush we’ve put together. It’s soft, it’s elegant, it’s fresh and it’s full of ideas for introducing your gray wedding day.
Gray wedding invitations will tell your guests that your personalities and your unique wedding style will be the stars of the day. Choose a vintage look with sweet flowers and lovely flourishes. Or go with a gray wedding invitation with a pop of a bright color and design for a more modern look.
Think you can’t find gray flowers? Think again! Light blue and faded lavender flowers, when mixed with silvery lambs ears or dusty miller fillers, are on the gray scale in a big way. You can also mimic gray with white flowers with big, black centers like anemones. Even the brightest white roses or hydrangeas take on a gray hue when arranged with gray seed pods, globe thistle blossoms and lavender flowers. Want even more in your gray wedding bouquet? Add metallic ribbon and spray the posies with a shot of glitter floral spray.
A gray satin wedding dress or bridesmaids’ dresses will gleam like silver. When the men are in gray suits, too, your entire wedding party becomes a canvas for the accents you want to stand out. Think soft with pastel pink flowers. Think bold with bright red or yellow bouquets. Think all-white for a look that’s so elegant!
Think about the look you want to convey in your wedding reception decorations. Love vintage? Mercury glass candle holders, vases and decorative items are a hot trend and they will make your gray wedding shine. Going formal? Choose shiny silver candlesticks and accents for rich gleam. Rustic? Use galvanized pails to hold flowers and drinks.
