Pretty jewel tones are popular wedding colors nearly any time of the year, but they're particularly festive during the cooler months when your ceremony and reception are begging for rich, warm colors to enliven your space. One of our favorite combos to do just that? Berry and grey!

The mix of bright, cheery berry tones paired with sleek, classic-yet-modern grey results in a vibrant color palette that still feels formal. To make this unique combination work for you, determine what kind of reception you'd like to host. If you're thinking chic and elegant, keep your palette mostly in the grey family and add pops of bight berry for unique accents. Feeling more fun and romantic? Start with mostly berry-tones and use grey shades to ground the space.

Here, we share some of our favorite ways to incorporate these two shades. An invitation, like our favorite pick from Bella Figura, can easily include both tones in a way that still looks refined. We love the unique details and playful type. Grey bridesmaid dresses have become very popular, but make your girls standout with a floor-length dress that includes pops of punch berry. As for your cake, an all grey confection will sit rather pretty on your dessert table!
