With spring now underway, it's time to start thinking of dreamy pastel colors for your wedding color palette. A combination we love that won't remind guests of a baby shower? Lemon and slate. The soft yellow hue pairs perfectly with sleek slate for a look that feels seasonal yet still entirely chic.

To make it work, use gray tones for the bulk of your décor elements and make elements pop with sunny yellow shades. Start with invitations, as your stationery is the perfect place to introduce your intended wedding style. This cool, geometric invitation from Avie Designs let's guests know they're in for a modern bash.

For dinnerware, we're obsessed with this Hermès place setting. Depending on what your wedding style is, dress your 'maids in gray or yellow looks. We love gray for a more formal bash and yellow if you're planning a celebration with a more relaxed vibe. Guests can sip on a pretty signature cocktail and head home with a favor wrapped in a geometric box featuring your two favorite shades.

Not loving this palette as much as we are? Not a problem! Check out more beautiful inspirations boards to inspire you on your big day.
