Board {#19} Pewter & Fern

Happy Thursday lovelies! I feel like I’m always talking about grays but they’re just too good to get old {for me at least}! So with the spirit of Spring in the back of my mind, and blending pretty pewters, grays and silvers with gorgeous Spring greens we came up with the perfect mix for an April or May wedding. I’m thinking gray suits, elegant bouquets, awesome boutonnieres in the form of greens, + pewter favors & invites. A perfect palette to get our heads out of winter!

Shades of Grey

Oh hello, Friday! How nice of you to arrive! Well last weekend I don’t know about you but I found myself casually obsessing over the cast of the 50 Shades of Grey movie so of course I couldn’t resist making a little 50 shades of grey inspired post. All of the book craze aside, grey has always been and will always be a timeless wedding color. So whether you’re going for the pale greys or the charcoals here’s to hopefully enough to inspire some grey wedding planning over the weekend!

Board {#6} Coral, Grey + Shades of Pink

Pretty in shades of pink plus a little coral and pale grey is what’s getting me out of bed this morning! Lots of colors perfectly {we think} blended together for a bright palette. This is a combination that makes you think twice. Well.. four times? One for each color maybe; because you usually don’t actually see such a variety in one palette – generally it’s just in the bouquet. But this is one thing on the Spring agenda that I think we’ll see a lot more of. Drawing on the idea of ombré anything… (that fading of light to dark on dresses, in bouquets – seriously anything these days) is where the idea for a combination of pinks and a sprinkle of coral came in. The result? Well I’ll let you decide…

The Wedding Palette – Blue-Grey Wedding Bliss

I know I always say this but I love when I almost convince myself to dream of things like having a destination wedding in Paris, or wearing a crazy organza avant-garde wedding gown, or many of the other things that I write about but would never imagine myself doing at my own someday wedding! And today, here we go again… I’m not really a decisive color person. Black is sadly my favorite but I have a soft spot for deep blue and bright orange in home decor and I really like bright colored dresses (but not shirts) so when it comes to the wedding palette, I’m all over the map… and I imagine I’m not the only one who just can’t nail down some color choices.

As you go back and forth between your options, may I suggest you consider one that isn’t really too popular in the wedding circuit but boy is it beautiful! So much that I think I’ve done it again! I’ve sold myself on the blue-grey wedding color palette! As always, with our wedding palettes these are meant to be our own version of the traditional inspiration board; I like to combine different elements of a wedding that are all easy enough to replicate for any bride to be. I’m loving our picks to take us into the weekend and hopefully convince you all how wonderful this palette can be! Some of my favorites… the handcrafted blue-grey wedding invites (third photo), my top choice for a wedding dessert, the macaroon – in a blue-grey tint (sixth photo), a pearl necklace with a little something blue (second photo), an uber-artsy pale blue headpiece (forth photo), blue-grey nail polish for the bride (eleventh photo) and my very favorite… the never-do-you-see-at-a-wedding blue-grey bow tie (thirteenth photo).  The beauties of the blue-grey wedding palette.. anddddd onto the weekend! Enjoy

The Wedding Palette – Elegant Yellow and Grey

When I think of yellow and grey I think Anthropologie, Brooklyn, chevron, hipster and vintage… so where does the wedding palette come in? Well, not sure why exactly, but I definitely am not thinking of classic elegance when the yellow and grey wedding palette pops into my mind… it seems that most of the yellow and grey weddings I see have a beautiful vintage vibe which is why today, I’m trying to think exactly the opposite of everything that “typically” comes to mind. And so we’re going for an elegant yellow and grey wedding palette!

I actually love this combination, but what I don’t love is seeing things like too much chevron (why is it that this pattern is ALWAYS either yellow or grey)? Before I go on… I know, I did make a slight exception with my first photo because this bridesmaids dress and bouquet is fabulous! Anyway, I also don’t like seeing things like yellow dresses and grey stockings (really… this is a wedding), and shoes that somehow combine these colors (very rarely does this work). I also randomly came across a yellow and grey garter… this is a big no no for me… ugh I’ll pass!

So what makes for a classy and elegant yellow and grey wedding palette?

The lighter the yellows the better here. Aside from the awesome bridesmaids dress that I already mentioned and couldn’t resist, I think the less of a mustard yellow the better in terms of making this an elegant palette choice. On the fashion front I’ve kept my other choices very light.. the preppy groomsmen in grey with a beautiful yellow accent boutonniere (second photo), the incredible yellow and white bridesmaids dress (third photo), handmade groomsmen ties from Apple & Ivy’s Etsy shop (love the mix of a bold pattern but light color shades – forth photo), or for the brave grooms, hide some yellow suspenders under that grey suit (fifth photo)! More suspender options in the last photo if you can’t get enough!

Moving onto the paper products… I love the table setting in our sixth photo… the place card is dainty and the “thank you” note is perfectly classic. Picking the right invitation design is key to keeping this palette elegant, so I love the invites in our seventh photo!

And from the paper to the decor, the bouquet (eighth photo) defines my ideas for this palette, incorporating the yellows and greys but keeping it very traditional with roses and other white colored flowers mixed in. Other decor ideas I love… the lovely table setting (eleventh photo), and wrapped boxes for your welcome table or as a centerpiece idea (twelfth photo). Finally, I couldn’t leave out the food… choose a traditional cake as dessert to balance the non-traditional yellow (thirteenth photo), and no wedding is complete without the macaroon (tenth photo)… yellow please, who wants to eat a grey macaroon anyway?
