As you all well know, we’re pretty big color freaks here at Grey Likes Weddings. It’s definitely our numero-uno-style-inspiration and there’s nothing more thrilling to us than rainbow of color options (ehem! the Mrs. Box collection). So, you can imagine our excitement when Weddings In Color, a rad new book from our friends over at Chronicle Books, made it’s way into our studio. This candy-colored planning guide is packed with totally do-able DIYs, super-honest interviews with industry experts and gorgeous inspiration imagery. The authors, two major wedding professionals, Vane Broussard of Brooklyn Bride and Minhee Cho of Paper + Cup, have covered everything you can imagine from innovative menu designs, to floral head pieces to creating a confetti bar (yay!).
We’re especially into the color wheels that open up each color chapter. If you’re looking to pinpoint the perfect green hue as reference for your calligrapher, you’re sure to find it in one of the seventeen greens on the wheel. It’s probably somewhere between sea mist, chartreuse or pistachio. Oh, and yes, there are individual color wheels for metallics, black, white and gray. Love.
Another thing that we’re kind-of obsessed with are the achievable DIYs. In keeping with style of the modern and contemporary wedding, the DIYs are cool, graphic and basically guaranteed not to look like Pinterest fails. And let’s be serious, no matter how proud you are to have done-it-yourself, a sloppy craft project does NOT elevate your tablescape.
In an industry that been inundated with vintage-rustic, this modern take on contemporary weddings is a breath of fresh air. Weddings In Color is super comprehensive but super straightforward and will help you navigate all the essentials in creating a bright and colorful celebration.
So, this book is basically the PERFECT gift for any bride. Shower, engagement party, thanksgiving—she’s gonna love it. Or…maybe it’s your turn to get a gift?? (cue the drumroll) Yep! It’s a giveaway! We’re excited to be giving away a copy of the book + wedding notebook (as seen below).
