Wedding Inspiration: Purple and Gray

Oh, sweet gray, how I love thee!

Gray is the new “hot” color in everything from fashion to design and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  It makes the perfect compliment to almost any alternating wedding color, and that is no exception to the color purple.  I adore the color purple, so feminine and elegant, that there is no question I love the idea of pairing purple and gray together.

This color palette works well in any time of the year and even looks stunning in the winter!

Purple or gray looks great on most skin tones and is a great choice for the bridesmaids or groomsmen to wear.  Gray tuxes are a nice alternative to the traditional black tuxes and are a good fit for a daytime or evening wedding.

One of the ways to make your purple color choice stand out is to incorporate lighting in to your reception.  With the right lighting you can make any room look like a million bucks.

You can even choose all white flowers and use purple lighting to give the flowers a purple hue…love it!

Gray linens or lavender linens are a great base for white and shades of purple flowers.  You can add more purple if you want a more dramatic look.

Hope you enjoyed this Purple and Gray Wedding Color Inspiration!

Happy Planning!
