Inspiration Board # 239: Gray & Shades of Yellow!

May 4, 2009

{Gray, Shades of Yellow + White}


When the color of sunshine meets the color of a drab dark rainy day..there are bound to be sparks! Just look at how the brightness of yellow compliments the coolness of gray. Oh how these colors were born to go hand in hand! This is, in my opinion, one of the top 5 hottest color palettes for 2009! That's why when the fun and spunky bride-to-be, Cydney, wrote to me about this amazing color palette- I was absolutely thrilled to put together some custom inspiration for her upcoming wedding. In my design, ladies wore a light shade of gray and carried bouquets of forsythia. {continued...}

Oh how their bouquets popped against the chiffon gray fabric of their gowns! Simply stunning! For invitations, I decided to incorporate a Bella Figura design which both complimented the overall feel of the wedding and made a beautiful statement. To add a touch of whimsy, ladies all wore a pair of little ballerina slippers and each had a lovely flower pinned into their hair. The overall design for the wedding was incredibly soft and airy but had some quirky modern touches that made for an incredibly fun night!

Sweet and stunning! LOVE those ballerina shoes and the hair pins! Goldfish crackers on the reception tables for a sea/lake side wedding would be fun.

Wow--I just came across your blog and I love it! I really like this palette especially, since those are our wedding colors--with some navy thrown in for good measure. :) Thanks for your comment!
