Still searching for the perfect color combo for your nuptials? Look no further – we have some gorgeous inspiration for you right here. Red and gray is a unique color palette that blends a neutral shade with a bright hue of red. Together the two create a harmony that is perfect for walking down the aisle. These two gorgeous colors will work for any season in which you’re planning to say “I do.” Here are a few ways to fit the shades into your special day:
Want the perfect mix of fun and glamour? This Mustache and Lips – Faux Glitter – Invitation has it all. A gray background, vaudeville-style mustache and bright red sparkling lips give the stationery some personality and pizzazz. The glitter brings just a touch of glam without overdoing it.
While the traditional tiered cake is always a great option for your dessert, it’s not the only way to go. Cupcakes are a tasty alternative and can be easily decorated to fit your theme, style and personality. Top your favorite flavor cupcake with white icing and a bright red heart. Use gray cupcake liners to blend the two shades together.
Keep the bridesmaid dresses simple with a solid gray color. Let each girl choose a dress style that suits her body type, as long as it’s in the same shade of gray. Finish off the look by giving each girl a bouquet of bright red roses, which will stand out beautifully against their pewter gowns. For the bridesmaids that want to go bold, a touch of red lipstick can add some drama while still staying on theme.
If you stick with the traditional white gown, add a splash of color with some feminine bright red pumps. Coordinate your shoes with a red headpiece, earrings, necklace or a bracelet.
Have your groom sport a little bit of the color trend as well. Gray suits are all the rage these days, and can work for both casual and more formal affairs. Finish off his dapper look with a red bloom for his boutonniere.
As for the main attraction at the reception tables, grab a few gray vases, whether they’re vintage, modern or contemporary, and fill them with your favorite red flowers. Go for a different bloom at every table to shake things up!
