Forget fifty shades of grey, the only shade that you should be concerned with is that of the dove.

Not only is it very on trend this year, it also provides a beautiful soft palette for the whole wedding.  Delicate and warm, it is a colour of natural elegance.

There are many wonderful things that come from choosing dove grey as your main theme colour – as you will discover while you read! – but first things first… how does it lend itself to décor?

The true beauty of dove grey is that it goes perfectly with nearly every colour under the sun. You may of course pick whatever shade you like, but we particularly recommend selecting blush pinks or a gentle peach as they complement the grey’s lovely warm hues. Pale pink roses, delicate foliage and sprays of white blossoms all look gorgeous against the dusky background, and this makes for a lovely table. Coincidentally, it also works really well with the Corinthia London Ballroom.

If erring from your childhood dream of the traditional white gown is more than you can handle, then worry not! You can still be bang on trend by turning your attention to the bridesmaids’ dresses. Not only will your bridemaids will be eternally grateful to you for dressing them in such a flattering colour, nothing makes a white dress stand out more than a dusky grey backdrop.
