The Definitive Grays Wedding Guide (or, how to antiquate the modern wedding)

What to do, what to do?  You could organize a wedding list at a plain-jane department store, or at a simple home decorating store.  Or, you could furnish your new life together with unique pieces that are infused with elegance and time.  Grays not only can help you with all you’ll need for the big day, but we also are a one stop shop for wedding lists that deliver gifts with more heart than a George Forman.

Diane Harby’s elegant lace collars, shawls and veils give a traditional diffidence to any bride.  They can also be used out of bridal context, adding a feminine touch to any outfit.
