Grey is a popular staple when it comes to wedding colors. It’s the perfect neutral for anyone who doesn’t want a base color as striking as black or as bright as white. Grey is soft and complementary to all colors, especially lavender! Notice how purple is its own beautiful color yet blends so naturally with grey. If you’re a fan of ombré style, this is a great color combo for you. The wedding cake shown here demonstrates the potential of these two hues working together.
The soft nature of this color combo creates an incredibly inviting look, especially on wedding invitations. This Floral Extravagance laser cut wedding invitation by celebrity wedding planner, Colin Cowie, is a wonderful example of how easily (and beautifully) grey and lavender pair up. A lavender background with dark grey wording is simple and gorgeous. The laser cut floral design lends a touch of garden charm.
Here, there and everywhere!
If you choose grey and purple wedding colors, get ready to have fun with your decorations. Why? Because this color combo is so subtle that you don’t have to perform a balancing act to make sure they play well together. Your look is going to depend more on clean placement and making sure purple sees the spotlight.
