Timeless Traditional Wedding Inspiration in Charleston

Today, we are swooning over this breathtaking styled shoot. Hosted in the ever-romantic Charleston, this wedding does not disappoint. This historic venue has been around since the 1900s, and has everything a girl could want on her big day- from the striking wood floors to the heavenly windows that let in an abundance of natural sunlight. If you want a traditional wedding with a bit of a twist, take note of what this talented team put together.

From the grey tablescape, blooming yellow flowers, and delicate letterpress invitations, we are loving how these dreamy colors and textures effortlessly complement one another. The bride’s unique wedding dress is the real star of the show though. We cannot take our eyes off of its stunning lace top! The bride’s soft makeup look and elegant up-do are truly a look to remember.

Grey Classic Wedding on High Grove Estate

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing this stunning classic wedding inspiration with you all! Set on an elegant Southern estate overlooking Lake Laurel, you’ll quickly see why these vendors fell in love with its vintage charm.

Perfect for any time of the year, this chic color palette is neutral enough to be used during any season. We love the various grey hues, and baby blue colors paired with just a hint of mint. Though this wedding feels traditional, it also encompasses some boho style flare. This swoon-worthy wedding dress has an embroidered lace bodice with an illusion neckline. If that doesn’t make you fall head over heels, the cathedral train will!

Their elegant floral watercolor invitations set the tone for this event. Filled with soft creams, pastel blues, and chic grey tones, this vintage design perfectly matches the reception decor.

There’s nothing dull or gloomy about a grey palette. Chic and completely sophisticated, the ombre trend is new again. Paired with neutral black and grey hues, a few shiny gold accents really top off this look. The result- a minimalist look we can all get excited about. If you’re looking for a grey wedding theme, here is your needed inspiration! From the ceremony to your wedding reception, here are some easy ideas for your big day.

white and black floral wedding invite with metallic gold foiling

Featured Wedding Invitation: Crisp Petals. See our full Wedding Invitation collection here.

A contemporary take on the floral trend is when a feminine motif meets a more masculine color palette. Monochromatic hues make this botanical invitation the perfect backdrop for gold foil stamping. On the back of card, you can choose to carry over the floral design or opt for a simple black or white. Foil is available in four colors: Gold, silver, rose gold and copper.

Extra inspiration for a silver and grey wedding:

Walk the aisle as if it were a runway. This bride’s art-decor inspired dress is truly fashion-show worthy. It has just the right elements (such as a flowing skirt) to say bridal but unique details that make it couture chic. The groom’s suit is understated but not lacking with its own unique details such as a piped lapel and standout bow-tie.

A dramatic look is achieved through contrasting hues. White anemone flowers are the perfect example. Paired with Brunia Silver blooms, it’s the perfect flower bouquet for a winter white wedding. Dusty Miller leaves soften the look.

Ombre Cake
This three-tiered ombre wedding cake gets added interest with a soft ruffle detail. Minimal colors and sculptural artistry will command all the guests’ attention.

Gold-rimmed clear dinner plates add a pop of metallic detail against a silver tablecloth. Details are kept minimal with a light grey napkin topped with a white menu.

Mercury Glass Votives
Mercury votives create a radiant atmosphere for dinner guests and ties in beautifully with the silver, grey color palette. Throw them on the tables to add a romantic glow.


Perfect for any season of the year, this elegant color palette will WOW any wedding guest!
