{Winter Whimsy}: A Palette of Cranberry, Slate Gray, Gray & White

{Cranberry, Slate Gray, Gray & White}

What happens when you pair the intensity of deep cranberry with shades of gray and white? A sort of unexpected elegance emerges. It's romantic, it's bold & there's no mistaking that this combination is packed full of personality! In this design I incorporated lovely tea length bridesmaids dresses. I chose a pinstriped gray suit for the groomsmen while a cranberry tie was chosen to coordinate with the overall palette. One of my favorite items in this board has to be the rustic style boutonniere that the groomsmen has on his lapel. Doesn't that look romantic? I happen to think so. Some other stand out details in this board include motif featured on the invitation & as well as that fun and whimsical calligraphy. Guests left this wedding feeling that they had been to a romantic & very regal affair.

So how are you feeling about cranberry + gray? I personally L-O-V-E any shade of red. But that's not to say that it's for everyone! Some people are just not cranberry fans! But for those of you who assured you're not alone! There is something so fun about this palette. Any brides-to-be out there who are considering cranberry in their palette? Do tell! xo

I was so excited to see this post! This is exactly the color scheme we just decided on. I'm thinking though of possibly doing cranberry BM dresses. Do you have any suggestions on flowers?

This is pretty. I am struggling with finding the right color pallette for my upcoming March afternoon wedding. My bridesmaids' dresses are cranberry - which I love. So I have to incorporate that color - I love the rich classy-ness of it, however, I also like soft romance and would love to have a romantic color pallette accented by rich cranberry. Any ideas? The wedding will be at 3pm or 3:30 in the afternoon in a church - very formal - as my fiance wants "black tie" but yet it's late afternoon so needs to be a little softer in my opinion. Thanks!
