Gray Wedding Theme Color Inspiration May 12 2016

Gray is a great base color 

We’ve had some stunning color combinations before and I know we’ll have many more to come but today’s color combination is one of my absolute favorites thanks to its versatility. There is no limit to a gray color combination and the best part about using shades of gray is that you can literally control how feminine/masculine a wedding should look and feel. It’s amazing. In fact, if you wanted to really add a fine level of color detail, you could control different parts of your wedding ranging them from feminine to masculine with just a few shades and color hints. That easy.

Perfect for the grooms who want a stronger touch to their part in the wedding!

In short, a gray color combination is the best compromise between a couple choosing wedding colors and there are some powerful color hints that add so much life and character in the details of the wedding.

To name just a few, here are some of my favorite gray combinations:

 

White and Gray

    A stark white with a cool gray and some softer hues like blush, dusty blue, lavender or lilac and champagne make excellent choices for the bride who wants something gentle. On the flipside adding some coral, navy, or gold will definitely add life to the wedding theme and these colors make excellent highlight colors to shades of gray.

     

    Blush Pink and Gray

    Totally Dazzled Vineyard Crystal Brooch 410-S

     

    I covered this color combination last year when the wedding industry saw a peak of this combination. It’s simply gorgeous. Blush, like gray, can be dressed up or down in any which way and makes an excellent base color. These two together are soft and create a warm, fairytale combination and with a few rhinestone touches like the Vineyard Crystal Brooch the color combination comes together as something spectacularly magical. 

     

    Lavender and Gray

    The shade of gray in this color combination controls how the lavender looks. With lighter grays, lavender will look wispy and feminine while a darker shade of gray brings out the serious side of lavender. Highlights of soft blues, pinks, and even greens make the lavender and gray combination a lovely strong set of colors to choose from with plenty of detail options.

     

    Green and Gray

    Believe it or not, this is a thing, and it’s amazing when the right hues are chosen and paired together. This combination has a very romantic feel to it and is a lovely mature color. It’s strong and earthy, really a fantastic combination. I love the idea of using the Crystal Napkin ring here. The clear stone is perfect for this intense color combination and the design of the napkin ring is as strong as the colors.

    Vintage Diamante Napkin Ring 412-S-N

    I love how naturally gray and blue pair together. It’s important to choose the right hues as an oddly paired blue and gray doesn’t look good at all, however with just the right shade of gray you can make blue stand out a mile. I suggest using blue as a highlight color and using shades of gray as the base color for this combination. Navy, royal blue and dusty blue colors pair extremely well with gray. My suggestion is to pair this theme with the striking Vintage Diamante Napkin Ring.
