Yellow and grey are proving to be a major color trend for 2011. The colors compliment each other really well, mixing a lesser used neutral with such a bright and cheery primary color. Grey and Yellow are really easy colors to use but make sure to use shades that will compliment the season of your wedding. Check out these photos for inspiration for your own wedding:
I love this photo. It’s a great idea to use loads of grey and then add pops of yellow. Also, by having your bridesmaids wear a neutral color they are guarenteed to have a dress they can wear again and won’t go out of style (color wise at least )

These pretty little flowers are called Billy Balls. They are such a beautiful shade of yellow and they are easy to incorporate into any wedding. They make really great boutonnieres as you will see in a minute or two. Billy balls are a nice hearty flower that can handle a lot of stress and they add a great vintage feel!

This save the date is another great example of using a load of grey and pops of yellow. This save the date is so adorable, I love that it captures that great summer feeling of catching fireflies! You can already tell that this wedding is going to fun and imaginative.

It’s very important to incorporate the theme and feel of your wedding into your invitation so your guests will have an idea of what to expect. This invitation, which adds white in addition to the grey and yellow, lets the guest know that the event will be fairly informal and will probably incorporate a lot of natural elements. I could see them having a homemade looking buttercream cake with a pair of birds on top to further tie in the theme.

I don’t think I need to say much about these shoes, except that they are fabulous and I need them.

This is a really great image because it gives you an idea of how to change up the shades of yellow and grey and it will completely change the feel of the event. This picture has taken me from a vintage yellow and grey to a more country, rustic yellow and grey. The dresses and matching shoes are great!

I told you billy balls make great boutonnieres! They look really great with the grey vest and yellow tie. The perfect about of color! If you want to go for a boutonniere that is a little larger billy balls look great paired in threes.
I had to end with food. I’m sorry. It’s all I think about. These cake pops are gorgeous!
