Undoubtedly a popular colour, while we are all embracing the use of grey in our home decor, it seems perfectly natural to feature it as a wedding colour. While you might not like the idea of predominantly grey wedding decorations, it’s certainly worth considering as an accent colour, whether you choose deep charcoal grey with yellow or a softer dove grey with pastel blue. It’s time to be inspired!

Grey with… Pink & Peach

Grey with... Blues
Grey and blue is a little less feminine than the shades of pink and peach. It’s a lovely choice for a summer wedding, but also lends itself well to a winter wedding with the addition of metallic.
This shade of sage blue is lovely with grey, and perhaps a hint of pink too.

Nature simply lifts this paler shade of grey. While the table linen here could have been white, the grey is infinitely softer.
