If you read any design blogs, or if you’ve set foot in a decor store in the last year or so, you know that the combination of yellow and gray could not be hotter right now. We’ve spotted this color pairing at weddings too, and we can’t get enough.

First, take a look at this inspiration board from chock-full-of-eye-candy blog The Perfect Palette:

This color combination is seasonless – it would be just as appropriate and pretty in spring as it would in fall. A bright, citrusy yellow could brighten up a winter wedding, and a buttery yellow paired with charcoal gray would be gorgeous in summer.

It’s also a pairing of two colors that are generally regarded as gender-neutral, so you can play up whatever feminine or masculine details you like.
