{Color Your Wedding Beautiful}: Yellow + Gray

When it comes to finding the perfect color palette for your upcoming wedding do you often find yourself feeling overwhelmed with possibilities? If you do, I want you to know that you're definitely not alone. And although selecting a color palette should be one of the easiest things you do along your journey to say 'I do,' I often receive distressed emails from brides just like yourself who are struggling with their choice. Well, I'm here to tell all you palette confused brides out there it's going to be difficult to make a bad decision. Because the truth can make almost any palette look lovely!

1. newlyweds 2. popsicles 3. polaroids 4. bouquet

Take this palette of shades of gray and yellow. Admittedly, this palette is one that I've had a long time love affair with. And although I ended up using a completely different palette for my wedding day, I definitely was tempted by this one. It's just one of those palettes that I thought my guests would be pleasantly surprised by. Ultimately, though another one just spoke a little more to me and so I went with my heart! So where are you at with your palette decisions? Have you decided? Are you on the fence? I'd love to hear how it's going?

I'm in the middle of that situation right now! I had my colours picked and now I'm not happy with them and want to change! :( It's way too hard to pick only a few colours from so many beautiful combinations.

You are so right. I think almost any colour palette can be made lovely! This colour combination is so beautiful and the possibilities seem endless! I chose a classic black, white, and dark red for our wedding, 5 years ago! :)


Jess September 21, 2011

Yes, I love the softness, yet the contrast of bright and dark. So dreamy!

Kristine {In Love, Engaged} September 21, 2011

I REALLY love this color combo as well and would have totally chosen it for my wedding if my (now) husband was more fond of yellow. But we stuck with gray! I completely agree with you though--that any color palette can be made beautiful!
