It’s 2021 and as nothing has been normal for a while, so why should Pantone stick to just one colour for its colour of the year? Instead, they’ve released two! ‘Illuminating’ and ‘Ultimate Grey’ are “two independent colours that highlight how different elements come together to support one another” The perfect way to describe 2020/2021. As always we now wait in anticipation to see all the complimentary wedding products that will launch into the wedding industry to allow us to create a beautifully styled wedding where these colours will be the focus. It’s the perfect colour combination for all season weddings. Here we take a look at some of our favourite yellow and grey wedding ideas and show you how you can add them to your own wedding day…

Your stationery is the first thing your guests will see so make it stand out, using your wedding colours as the focus. Use bright yellow with a smouldering grey for a bold and vibrant look and feel, or muted tones if you’re going for a more classic luxurious look. We love these designs, and they truly show the scope you can have when it comes to using these colours and moulding them to your theme.
Using different tones of yellow and grey within your flowers can make the statement you want for your wedding day. Brighten up your grey styling with a pop of colour when it comes to your bouquet and buttonholes. They can be mixed with dried flowers and feathers for an autumnal wedding, or how about dried rose buds for an alternative, ethical, wedding day confetti.
The classic dove grey suit is super stylish when it comes to a chic wedding day vibe, so mixing in a vibrant yellow is perfect for a spring-summer wedding. Whether it’s going super bold and choosing yellow shirts, or adding a simple yellow detail in your cufflinks, tie or pocket square, it will coordinate your yellow and grey wedding to perfection.
If you’re an alternative bride looking to use yellow and grey in your bridal look, then these items are for you. A whimsical floral headpiece or a fancy, colourful fascinator is perfect for a vintage vibe. If that’s not enough, choose a tie-dye yellow wedding dress, we love this naturally dyed one, perfect for a laid back boho vibe.
If you want to carry the theme into your accessories, we love these ones. From personalised handkerchiefs that come in an array of embroidery colours, to luxury grey personalised garters. Or, if you’re looking for a small gift for the morning of the wedding and want to keep with the theme, how about these cute bride/groom keyrings!
Yellow in the jewels is where it’s at. Yellow diamonds are becoming more and more popular, and I’m sure you’ll agree, are truly beautiful! Whether you want a vintage vibe or an elegant ring to tie the knot, a yellow diamond will definitely make a statement sparkling on your ring finger. These ones are definitely making us swoon.
