marbled grey and auburn

Marbled grey + auburn isn’t a common wedding color palette – but I think that it is an absolutely gorgeous one. Classy AND unique – what’s not to love about that?!

For a wedding color combination with so much stone-like and cool hues it’s important to provide a balance and warm things up a bit. The brick-red chair at the reception table is a really nice touch as are the peach flowers adorning the marbled wedding cake and the leathery brown escort card.

Bronze wedding shoes would look great on any bride with auburn colored hair and the wooden cake stand is a simply wonderful way to warm up that grey cake. It’s a perfectly balanced palette for a perfectly lovely wedding day!
