Precious pastels never go out of style, but sometimes, they need a modern dose of a sleek, complimentary hue to wake up what could potentially be a sleepy wedding color palette. A pretty pair we love? Dark gray and soft pink. The ballet-inspired pastel hue is sugary-sweet and charming, while the gray adds maturity to the palette. This pretty-in-pink combo offers a romantic aura and a lovely femininity, but also a dash of masculinity thanks to deep, classic gray hue — it is your groom's day too, after all!
Delicate and elegant, incorporate this soft-hued palette into endless wedding day details. Cordially invite your guests with these classic-yet-modern invites from Paperless Post, featuring an on-trend brushstroke element of your sophisticated wedding colors.
When the big day arrives, brush a romantic pink blush along your cheekbones to give yourself that blissful bridal flush and then ballerina-twirl down that aisle with an armful of some pretty petals, like this enchanting dahlia bouquet by Fifty Flowers. Give your 'maids a dose of the hue as well with barely-there pink bridesmaid dresses — a universally soft and flattering shade your girls will thank you for!
Make your sit-down dinner just as chic by dining on this formal plate set by Mud Australia and ABC Home, that expertly embraces both coordinating shades. And finally, as the night ends, send your guests off with an edible wedding favor as sweet as this charming color combo — posh elderflower and rose lemonade, prettily encased in a pink and gray-calligraphed bottle.
