Charcoal for the Naughty AND Nice

With Christmas only a week away, we're finding it hard not to get consumed by the list of presents we have to buy. Luckily, online shopping continues to be a life-saver, and we're not just saying that because we're an online retailer too!

But back to weddings. We've noticed that the color gray continues to increase in popularity this year. It's quite interesting to us since gray is not exactly the first color that you would associate with a celebratory occasion. But it does give a nice subtle tone that is muted but still elegant. Brides are also balancing it out by pairing it with a bright color to lighten the mood. The most popular combination is gray and yellow, but we're also seeing it matched with pinks and purples.

Dessy has picked up on this trend and has expanded its Charcoal Gray and Marigold colors to their Stretch Charmeuse dresses for next season. They've also added Oyster, which is a lighter gray, to their Matte Satin color palette. We'll have those new swatches up on our site in a few weeks. A perennial favorite is also Landa's Lemon color which is available in Satin and Chiffon. Julie used Dessy's Style Board tool for some inspiration:
