Yellow + gray is such a versatile color combination, both in terms of formality and season. It is equally appropriate for an informal backyard summer wedding as it is for a black-tie ballroom wedding in January. The tricks to this color scheme in tending it one way or the other are your choice of graphic design, wording layout (as well as wording itself), and typestyle.
The above paper suite contains a simple, pocket-style wedding invitation of graphite accented with a yellow damask fixed band with Swarovski crystals. The invitation is printed on white with a yellow damask backing. The white mailing envelope is lined with a matching custom yellow damask envelope liner.
The escort cards above have two colors to indicate meal option at the reception – gray damask is one entrée, yellow damask is the other. All escort cards contain crystals as well.
The wedding menu above doubles as a table number and is three-sided, self-standing, printed fully in yellow damask, with table number and menu information on all three sides.
And here, we have another example of yellow and gray wedding papers – a wedding invitation in a suede-like gray fabric box. The box is adorned with a wide, bright yellow grosgrain ribbon and a hand-sewn flower made with yellow striped cotton fabric. The invitation itself has yellow polka dots.
The seating cards for this invitation are double-sided and mimic the yellow polka dots from the invitation. Guests’ names are printed on one side, and their table number is shown on the back.
