Monday Mood Board: Grey Wedding Colours
Morning lovely ones! I hope the weekend treated you all kindly. Oh, and how please is it October already?! We we’re graced with the presence of some hugely talented individuals at yesterday’s designer wedding fair. I mean, how much pretty was the Royal Hall filled with? A huge thank YOU to everyone that joined us, including some beautiful couples and super-wonderful wedding people. Now, just 6 day’s till we’re back at it again at the oh-so opulent Carlton Towers. We love all of this wedding fair season malarkey!
Today, however for our Monday Mood Board feature, we’re looking to one of our favourite wedding trends, and of course, it has to be grey wedding colours. Isn’t there is just something about the colour that when incorporated into styling, and even the fashion, it looks sophisticated, chic, and gives a soft whimsical classic look? We are in love with today’s mood boards, and we hope you love them too…
As always do share with us your own weddings, or idea’s on how to incorporate grey into your special day. To get us started though, here is a colour palette designed to impress; start your theme of the right way by posting beautifully designed stationery to your guests, of course, complete with lovely calligraphy.
The color grey, whilst often associated with bleak cloudy days (typical October, eh?), can create quite the opposite effect when implemented into a wedding color palette. Despite its “colorless” pigment, the neutral hue is a seemingly colorful alternative to other neutrals used in weddings, such as white, ivory, or champagne.
Just take a look at these gorgeous gowns. Not only does it still carry on that ethereal whimsical vibe, but we love how this simplistic colour can be dressed up with sleek embellishments and ornate jewels, or dressed down with leather details and a plunge neckline. A much more modern, yet chic way to wear grey on your wedding day.
Since modern metallic décor details are becoming more and more popular, grey beautifully complements both silver and gold embellishments on wedding cakes and sweet treats. The colour grey and metallic details combined make for the most impressive cakes, don’t you agree?
Another advantage of the colour grey is that the hue can work just as well for a vintage-themed weddings as it can for a sophisticated opulent celebration. All cakes on this board would look great for both styles – add lace for romantic vintage, or gold leaf for a modern, yet classic look.
& The Styling…
Couples can choose to highlight a neutral wedding colour palette by including cream details, silver or mirror accents, and light-colored blooms to grey décor. We are crushing over the pretty pastel blue hues, and the contrast of dainty elegant flowers with rustic brick walls.
Capturing the beauty of this colour palette is all in the details, whether it be subtly placed upon your delectable cake, simple elegant touches on your reception table or the colour of your wedding dress. Look for delicate ways to bring grey and stone like hues into your scheme
