I initially thought about doing a beige and white theme, where my table cloth would be beige and my flowers would be white.  I thought it looked elegant since the room was already beige to begin with.  But after looking at other people’s wedding albums when we were trying to pick out a photographer, I realized that color really does make a difference and really makes pictures pop.  My bridemaids are wearing chocolate brown and I’m going to have the colors be magenta, blue, with a hint of green and white.  That way, everything will look vibrant since my wedding is in July.

Grey may wash things out and make your pictures turn out dull and washes people out, especially if they have pale skin.  What about chocolate brown and tiffany blue.  I hear that’s very in now with a touch of silver or grey (since you like grey).  I think that may be nice.  Let me know what you eventually decide!

I don’t think you should give up your dreams of grey. I also wouldn’t suggest chocolate linens if the walls are navy/black. The white or ivory will help brighten things up. A lot of wedding trends actually are calling grey the new black. I think that if you pair it with a vibrant color it will look perfect for a chic NYC wedding in July. I have seen it being paired frequently with a sunny yellow.  Although, almost any bright color would work… just depends on your taste. Maybe pink/coral, caribbian blues, or even orange/ivory. Best of luck!!

I agree a sunny yellow would look gorgeous with navy!

Would it be worth it to you to separately rent linens, so that you could use gray or another color? I agree the chocolate and gray together would be a bit blah. White or ivory linens would be fine, but white/ivory with gray might leave things a little blah, unless you really use flowers and other accents in bright colors to make the room pop. I really love the idea of gray with green (very simple/modern), or gray with fuschia if you want someting more vibrant.

Lime green with the grey! (it might be hard to work with flower-wise) but would look really neat with little "pops" of bright green here and there 🙂

How about mixing grey with pink? You can go very demure with a palette of soft greys, pinks, and creams; or you can use hot pink to make things really pop. I’ve changed my mind a bajillion times on my colors, and I still have 2 years to go! LOL you’ll find something. Look at this board I found:

Grey & Pink

Good luck!
