If you’ve spent any time shopping, browsing the web for trends or perusing a style magazine this season, you may have noticed an immense amount of gray neutrals mixed with the bright, hopeful colors of spring. Gray, although traditionally thought of as drab and dreary, has taken on new life in 2009 and promises to be one of the most modern mix-ins that you can have in your wedding.
I personally have an intense fondness for the grays of the season, from deep slate-gray to a lighter San-Franciscan Fog gray. A wedding infused with gray will appear modern, classy and sophisticated. So instead of dreading May Gray, welcome it with a flourish. Try mixing gray in to your wedding with some of the following color pairings:
Yellow and Gray: From top to bottom, left to right: Two Birds Wedding Invitation from Wedding Paper Divas; Bari Jay Bridesmaid Dress; Yellow Bouquet from Brides.com; Dwell Studio Peony Decorative Pillow from Target; Luxe Pewter Shoe from Heels.com.
Purple and Gray: From top to bottom, left to right: Luxurious Lace Thermography Wedding Invitation from Wedding Paper Divas; Gray Wedding Cake from TheCakeGirls.com; Catherine Malandrino Silk Ruffle Hem Dress from Gilt Groupe; Diane Von Furstenberg Pura Lopez Satin Heels; Purple and Gray Throw Pillows from Maison & Objet.
