One of the most fashion forward trend this year is yellow and grey wedding colors. This color combination is a fun and uplifting theme that offers many options for any season. A yellow and grey theme can work to create several different wedding atmospheres. The most common one is a summer feel. However, this color combination can convey a country themed wedding, as well.
As a guideline, the pale yellow tones make great spring color, while a bright yellow is usually used in summer weddings. If, you are planning a fall or winter wedding, consider darkening the yellow a few shades for a beautiful and warm golden hue that is sophisticated and elegant, especially when paired with deep shades of grey.
Your Wedding Party Attire:
Yellow can be a funny color for apparel, as it does not always match everyone’s skin tone or match every season. If, your wedding party is not happy about wearing yellow attire, consider opting for grey dresses with a pretty yellow ribbon, instead. Suit your groomsmen in grey tuxedo’s and use yellow flowers, sashes, and ties to brighten things up. Another great idea is to wear yellow heels under you wedding gown.
Use citrus accents with vases and other containers. Decorating the reception and ceremony area with yellow flowers such as mini daffodils, roses, orchids, tulips, lilies, daisies, or chrysanthemums is a great way to carry out your theme. Adorn all of your decorations and floral arrangements with grey accents.
Adorn your guest tables with pillar candles in yellow that are nestled within a grey circle of chiffon or tulle fabric for a simple, but elegant centerpiece. Or perhaps tall clear vases with single yellow roses are more suitable to your style.
To add a romantic glow to your decor, fill large, clear vases with lemons slices pressed along the sides, fill the vase with water and place a small bouquet of flowers on top. Another option is to fill the vases full with lemons.
Lets Not Forget The Food:
Lemons pair nicely with many different dishes. Pasta tossed with lemon thyme sauce, and chicken glazed with a lemon sauce are a couple of ideas. Serve lemon sherbert in between courses to help clean the palettes of your guest. Considered serving a citrus themed dessert such as lemon meringue or iced lemon cupcakes.
Choosing your color scheme is only beginning to creating your unique and memorable day for everyone involved. However, a color scheme helps to set the mood and can be used in many different ways. Consider adding yellow and grey wedding colors to help set the mood of your very special day.
