Grace & Grey – Garden Wedding Inspiration in Soft Shades of Grey & Blush
Summer is all about the outdoor spaces so today’s inspiration board is centered around a graceful and elegant garden affair, and in a similar palette to the Southern inspired board I created just this time with a less dusky green, paired with an ethereal duo of greys…..

As is so often the case, the key to keeping this look chic is keeping it simple – simplicity is, as the say, the ultimate sophistication! Show restraint with the palette, choosing just soft, silvery shades of grey and a hint of blush. And whatever venue you choose, give your celebration a romantic garden vibe with lashings of seasonal greenery.
Choose somewhere like a vineyard or country estate, with the grounds and space to create a separate ceremony setting and reception area. A floral arch and vintage church pews for your ceremony, then rustic, wooden cross back chairs with farmhouse style tables for the marquee reception. Hanging floral installations will bring the outside in to your marquee and allow you to keep centerpieces simple – freeing up space on your tables.
Layering textures will add an opulence to even the most simple setting and decor. Rich fabrics such as chiffon for your bridesmaids, satin for your shoes, and a touch of velvet here and there, will add a sense of luxury and elegance. I especially love the white sugar icing flowers on the white iced wedding cake, it is such a timeless look.
