Today I'm excited to bring you 3 of the hottest neutrals to hit the wedding scene since the color black. When it comes to styling your wedding, neutral colors offer a multitude of ways to add personality to your wedding decor, proving that neutrals are anything but dull. Soft hues, such as beige, khaki, and rain-cloud gray, create a calming atmosphere, while the contrast of a gold and white color scheme introduces elegance and flair.
Go bold with splashes of rich neutrals, such as chocolate brown or slate gray, or go sleek and subtle with a tone-on-tone white look. The choice is yours!

Gold is arguably the most popular neutral in weddings right now. It's metallic quality really makes it feel special. And for that reason, we're seeing more and more couples choose to add elements of gold to their wedding days. I like gold because it's easy to incorporate a vintage inspired theme and it adds a bit of "fancy" to any affair.

Gray, also a huge color for weddings right now, has taken the wedding industry by storm. More and more often we're seeing grooms and groomsmen dressed in gray suits instead of classic black. And we're also seeing more and more brides selecting gray for their bridesmaid dresses as well. Overall, it's a color that has continued to grow in popularity. And it's easy to see why!

Brown became really popular in weddings a few years back (with a huge peak in 2007 - 2009). I remember when I was planning our wedding, brown was the "it" color for neutrals. We were seeing brown bridesmaid dresses pop up everywhere, and it was used often to communicate that rustic flair we've all grown to know and love.
