Is it grey or gray? Both spellings are acceptable just like color and colour or theater and theatre. “Gray” is widely used in the United States, whereas “grey” is always used in Great Britain. According to a survey conducted both in the U.S. and England, many people believe “grey” is an actual color perceived as the hue of “silver” and “gray” is a sliding scale of values from black to white.
Hence, the spelling “grey” is more popular and definitely far more elegant. Most of us know “grey” as in Earl Grey, Grey’s Anatomy and of course, the one and only, Christian Grey.
Unfortunately, we are not talking about Mr. Grey, we are talking about spring event colors. Grey can be described as gloomy, dreary or dull. But, we don’t see it that way. We know that Grey is the complete opposite ~ intriguing, luminous and complementary. If used independently, it also makes a powerful statement. (Perhaps, why it’s the namesake of the fictitious character) No doubt, it’s such a great shade to play with.
From a light silver, to a shimmery pewter, to a deep charcoal, shades of grey work well with so many colors on the palette. Grey is the perfect neutral to pop all other colors. Jewel tones such as orange, yellow, turquoise and plum are hot for spring weddings, showers and Bat Mitzvahs, and they all blend beautifully with grey.
Regardless of how you spell it, or how you use it, you are guaranteed to have a STYLED EVENT.
