Gray Wedding Details
The sophisticated graphic design on this dramatic cake was fashioned from different sizes of chocolate nonpareils. A combination of round and square tiers extends the cake's architectural interest.
A Sunny Table
Sunny and steely, dialed up and dulled down, the combination of yellow and gray makes for a contrapuntal dance that's neither too sweet nor too subdued.
Pretty Pewter Seating Cards
Here, marigold card stock offsets gray-on-white seating cards, which are adorned with whimsical line illustrations. Guests' names are printed on the tags, and the table numbers appear on the bright yellow paper they're pinned to. A pewter tablecloth further alludes to the wedding palette.
This lemon-and-gray flower arrangement is finished with anaglypta embossed wallpaper surrounding the vases. The centerpiece is subtly textured, yet simple enough not to overwhelm an ornate dessert or an elaborate dinner.
Graceful Gray Reception Table
Silver-gray garlands of satin ribbon festoon walls and the reception table. In the center of the table, a large footed vase filled with river rocks holds bejeweled branches; their beads were attached by hand.
This bouquet seems as if it has arrived fresh from a country garden, yet the gray accents and ribbon give it an air of sophistication.
This formal white stationery suite by Mrs. John L. Strong, engraved in gray ink, is the first glimpse guests will get of the sophisticated color scheme.
Golden-and-Gray Flower Girl
There's more to flower-girl attire than plain white or sugary pink. In fact, dressmaker Roxbury Baby will fashion a frock out of any fabric you send them, as with this yellow-and-white silk-voile dress. Just as unusual: the silver-pewter shoes, which are an elegant but still age-appropriate touch.
