New Color Combo: Charcoal & Emerald

I'm going to be a bridesmaid in a September wedding in which one of the wedding colors is charcoal. While the bride is doing a lovely combination of charcoal against soft pastels, I also love when this dark neutral is expressed with bright pops of color, such as canary yellow, featured in the image below.

However, lately I prefer unexpected color combinations. So I came up with an emerald green and charcoal palette, offset by the cool crispness of white.

What are your favorite unexpected color combinations for a wedding?



  1. This is the first I've seen of this combo. I'm thinking it would be perfect at Xmas with shades of gray muting into silver . . .

  2. That's a great idea! I could definitely picture this for a Christmas wedding as well.

  3. the emerald color looks amazing with the charcoal - I'm loving this combo.

  4. What a gorgeous blog! I love the emerald green and gray. Hmmm...I'm thinking that might be a great color combo for decorating my dining room too!
