{Color Your Wedding Beautiful}: Coral, Orange + Gray

If I had to pick a color of the year, I think Coral would be it. Coral is such a vibrant color and to me it's the kind of color that you can really use for any season depending on what you pair it with. Coral is just a special color. And since gray is admittedly my favorite neutral of all time... I love it when I see these colors come together. Throw in a pinch of orange and you've got yourself a palette that's full of potential...

So tell me, are you as much of a coral lover as I am? It's definitely a color that I would love to see more of in weddings. It just has that something special that we don't see enough of! I personally love to see coral used in tropical settings and destination weddings. Maybe because I mostly associate coral with being exotic. So what do you think? Might you consider using coral for your upcoming wedding? Or maybe another project?

Both are great color for a wedding. It's just that gray looks more elegant and coral has this cool feeling.
