Today we’re pairing soft and pretty pink with chic and contemporary grey for couples looking for a modern but romantic palette for their Big Day. This is an easy palette to replicate and will appeal to both brides and grooms – grey is a gorgeous, elegant colour that’s having a bit of a moment just about everywhere (interiors, fashion, weddings – you name it) while blush pink is always a popular colour choice for weddings and of course Pantone named the fabulous Rose Quartz as one of their colours of the year in 2016, so you’re sure to find plenty of pretty pink decor and accessories about.
The way to go about this palette is to use white or ivory as an accent and work in your pink and grey through your decor and accessories. Maids would look fabulous in soft blush or rose pink (check out some of our favourite pink bridesmaid gunas here) but would look equally gorgeous in a cool grey, particularly come winter time. Add hints of blush through accessories from a pop of pink in the flowers, as a tie for wedding bouquets or as a sash for your little flower girl. For the lads, grey suits look sharp and stylish (and will defo be worn again) – work in a touch of pink through the button hole, pocket square or tie (we love this adorable secret message from a bride to her pop tucked underneath)!
In terms of decor, think sophisticated grey or pretty pink fonts on your stationery and menu, add a pop of pink to the centrepieces through your flowers, rock a fabulous pink wedding cake and hang balloons and lanterns in assortment of shades to create a pretty and fun focal point. This colour palette is easy to work with and can be greyed up or given an even more feminine twist by adding more of either shade! Check out some ideas below…
