Lilac Gray Wedding Theme { Pantone Spring 2016 }



Happy Friday everyone! We have come more than half way now and it’s no.6 of the Pantone Spring 2016 ” Lilac Gray Wedding Theme ” You may be thinking, “Gray, Really?!” Gray is a mid tone neutral, which means that it is very easy to use in combination with one or more colours, and it is not as dark and bold as espresso or navy. But when you add a bright colour such as purple or yellow or even pink it makes for a very elegant and gorgeous wedding. I think this lilac gray would make a fantastic palette when combi with shades of soft purple. Once you start to think about it, you can see why gray is becoming more and more popular for weddings. You can see in previous posts that I’ve done lots of grey and you can click to see them here : grey and pink wedding palette , grey and navy wedding palette , grey and yellow wedding palette, grey and mint wedding palette, grey and peach and much more right all grey’s palettes.

To use lilac gray in a Spring wedding, think about layering it into the fabrics, such as bridesmaid dresses and tablecloths. A dove gray or pewter color makes a very chic and minimalist choice for your attendants. Soften the austerity of gray by choosing a dress in a soft fabric like chiffon or organza. If you want to add a splash of colour by the bridesmaids’ faces, a great way to do this is by giving them bridesmaid jewelry in a colour like red or lime green. Alternatively, you could keep the colour palette very restrained, and have each bridesmaid wear jewelry in clear crystals. This could be very elegant for an evening wedding.

Consider decorating your ceremony with gray and silver chairs, tied with big, lilac or soft shades of purple sashes, and have purple petals fill the aisle.  You may also consider using shades of purple tulips instead of roses, because they are not only a beautiful, early summer flower choice. Take your gray  theme, and carry it throughout, and go wild with it in your reception venue. Your guests will be so impressed with the elegant, yet beautiful feel this colour bring to the occasion.
