Grey and Yellow Wedding Inspirations
When it comes time to decide on your wedding theme, grey and yellow make a beautiful summertime color combo that plays perfectly into the hot to trot vintage and rustic inspired wedding trends. Not only are they just pretty together, but the muted grey with the splashes of yellow creates an elegant and delicate look to your entire wedding.
When it comes to the wedding day attire, dress your gals in vintage grey bridesmaids dresses, and throw in a pop of color with yellow bouquets and yellow heels! You can even bring the colors into your own look by donning yellow or grey shoes under your gown, or adding a grey or yellow sash or belt to your wedding dress. With wedding dresses in nontraditional colors becoming more and more prevalent, you could even find a grey gown for you! For your man, grey has become the IT color for men’s suits and is a fab way to get that hipster or vintage vibe. Opt for a tailored three-piece grey suit so he can throw off the jacket for a more cas feel during the reception, and a yellow tie or bow tie will bring the color scheme full circle.
Yellow flowers are pretty easy to come by, giving you options for sweet-scented bouquets and centerpieces in just about every price point. Yellow roses, daisies with their yellow centers, daffodils, dahlias and the little pom-pom looking billy balls will give you bright yellow flowers that will go perfectly with white or green floral accents. Give your guy a boutonnière with the same yellow flowers tied up in a pretty grey ribbon to complete his look, too!
Your sweets are also a great way to bring in the yellow and grey color scheme – I love this cake and how it uses polka dots, texture and chevrons to add the grey and yellow in a whimsical yet not overwhelming way. Offer your guests yellow lemonade in mason jars, add lemonheads to the tables as a little treat, or opt for lemon cupcakes. Yum!
For your décor, anything looks pretty in yellow and grey, so it’s really up to you what elements you want to bring into your day. Go for different shades of yellow candles on grey stands, or hang a yellow and grey banner along the wall of your reception. You can even add little yellow or grey wedding favors to the tables to bring an added dimension to the place settings. Use grey linens with yellow napkins, and add grey signs to your sweetheart table that say “Mr.” and “Mrs.”
So if yellow and grey are your colors of choice, have fun! No matter what you do, you’ll have a lovely and elegant wedding that shows off your great taste and style.
