Not all summer brides have to be in a traditional white or ivory wedding dress with a bright, colorful bouquet. Why not make a breathtaking appearance in an ethereal silver gray gown accented with sparkly blue accessories? Such a gorgeous way to bring in the requisite “something blue” for your wedding, set against classic gray. We’ve put together a bridal style board for you, with links to each element’s source and the corresponding prices—totaling less than $4,000 for the entire ensemble!
Silver Gray and Blue: How to Get the Look from Head to Toe
To add glamour to the understated elegance of soft gray, we recommend adding silver and gold highlights and sparkling blue accessories.
Gorgeous in gray
Begin by selecting a wedding dress that perfectly captures that ethereal image, like this “Lobelia” gown (1) from Carousel Fashion on etsy. We love the grace of the softly gathered chiffon skirt, and the sheer sleeveless top glitzed up with sparkling beadwork.
Sparkly accents in blue and silver
Accessorize this with glittery blue jewelry pieces. For your hands, a stunning antique Victorian pearl and sapphire ring (2) on an 18k gold band from EraGem. To highlight your face, a sapphire and rhinestone hair piece (3) handmade from a 1920s Art Deco brooch by Amore Treasure, available via Amazon. Then, around your neck, a necklace of blue Swarovski crystals on gold (6), handmade by DK Dangles also via Amazon.
For more silvery accents, how lovely would this Majorella rosary (7) be, beautifully crafted using freshwater pearls with a white-gold crucifix and sterling silver beaded chain, from Bellenza ($245). Plus on your feet, silver dress pumps (4) from Betsey Johnson, via Amazon.

What about some bridal beauty tips for this ensemble, you ask? Note, for instance, the “messy bun” hairstyle on the wedding gown model. It’s the perfect blend of classic and contemporary casual. Want to give it a try? Here’s a 3-step how-to from Makeup.com.
And of course, there’s the all-important bridal makeup that we posted about here, here and here. Don’t forget your finger nails, though! For this silver gray and blue bridal selection, Ella + Mila nail polish (5) in “Grey Skies” shade would be perfect. It’s available via Amazon.
