A Grey Affair

Forget 50 shades of grey, soft grey is one of my absolute favourites when it comes to wedding colours. It’s not a choice that many people may make, however when used alongside other stunning colour tones such as dusky pink, berry tones, peach twists or simple nudes it can shout out, ‘stunning alternative’ to typical wedding colour schemes.

If you want a base colour, a stylish base colour that pops out using a sophisticated look, then look no further. I mean, look at this suit for starters.

Grey can be used for a frosty winter style using colours and textures, such as the ones used in the bouquet below. For a more striking look you can use brighter tones and textures. It really is an all-rounder.

This dress is something that I can only really say WOW to. The colour, tone and intricate detail really are a one off, WOW!

When using this colour I always think it’s best to use it as a main colour, for example, this table setting has the grey overlay/table cloth as it’s base colour with small grey accents being used throughout. The main colour pop is being demonstrated through the flowers, using tones of your chosen colour will add class and style as well as colour interest.
