Spotlight is on the color GREY!
July 10, 2010
Every year there is a new saying “______ is the new black”. Every color has had that spotlight, this year the honor goes to grey. It now adorns walls, shoes, and red carpet gowns. But nothing is more chic than a grey wedding. I know what your thinking, “a grey wedding? How can that be chic?” Well for starters, ANY color coordinates well with grey. Every person in your wedding will look fabulous in grey. With it being such a popular hue now, every designer is making grey a fashionable option for everything from tuxedos, bridesmaids dresses to the adorable flower girl gowns.
Imagine your guests opening their mail boxes and pulling out an elegant silvery-grey envelope and upon opening it, they lay their eyes on a beautiful, monochromatic flower embossed envelope. This is a wonderful way to gear up your guests for an event they are sure never to forget.
Just like women, not all men have to wear a specific color as they wait for their bride to make her way down the aisle. Grooms now want more choices when it comes to the big day. Let them choose what they will wear (with your help of course!)
There are many ways to spice up grey. Add not only a pop of color but also add a cheerfulness by using sunflowers for your bouquets and centerpieces. Yellow may be too bright and over-powering for many brides who otherwise love the color. Using grey as the main color on the scheme and using yellow adds a dramatic effect that is bound to have your guests talking about your beautiful wedding for years to come.
Having an elegant wintry reception? Grey is your answer! Adorning the grey tablecloths add small Christmas trees, or birch branches with snowflakes and candles and you will have the winter wonderland that you are looking for. Going for a more regal look? The color of royalty is purple, below is a wonderful example of the perfect way to add the royal touch to your reception.
There are many more ways to use grey to liven up your wonderful day. One thing to remember is be creative, and think outside the box!
