Inspiration Board # 232: Red + Slate Gray

April 26, 2009

{Red, Gray + White}

What's one of the 'it' color combinations for 2009? Spicy red and slate gray are definitely one of the top contenders. Just check out how sophisticated these two are! Slate gray is the perfect compliment to red! I just love how gray tones the color red down yet still lets it shine! That's why when Maura wrote to me with this palette in mind, I was just beyond excited to get to work! In my design, it was important to me to create a vintage feel. I did this by incorporating charming touches that I considered timeless. The lovely invitations and table numbers were designed in a specialty font that really stood out as being unique. {continued...}

Bridesmaids wore slate gray dresses made of chiffon and held bouquets of red roses and black magic. To add an additional pop of color, I chose red hot heels for the ladies to wear. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, the couple chose a cupcake buffet. This idea truly proved to be a crowd pleaser! For an added touch, each cupcake had a cherry on top. When it was time to say their goodbyes, the couple ran through a tunnel of sparklers and drove away in an old fashioned get-a-way ride. How cute is that?

I really love this color combo!
Red is our dominant color, with pink, cream, and green accents, but I love the gray! I suggested it to some people and everyone shot it down since we are having a summer wedding.

I think red looks lovely with gray too-especially for summer weddings. Sometimes people just can't visualize it :)
