Red and White

What says winters more than red and white? These colors are so evocative of the winter celebrations, including Christmas and Valentine’s Day that they quickly suggest a mood of pure happiness. As these colors are common for winter weddings, have fun mixing up prints like checks, stripes, and toile. For a more sophisticated look, play up with different shades of red and white.

Silver, White, and Light Blue

For a modern take on a snowy winter wonderland, pick a palette of silver, white, and icy blue. This color scheme lends your wedding a stunning, classic wintry look that evokes dramatic landscapes of ice, snow, and sky. For decorations use ice sculptures, white Christmas lights, and white flowers. Add sparkle to this subtle palette with shimmering mercury glasses, antique glitter, and sparkling crystals.

Cinnamon and Purple

Cinnamon-a shade of brown complements the color purple very well. To use this wedding color scheme for your big day, dress your bridesmaids in either color and add a pop of the other color by wrapping sashes around their waist. Use flowers like lilacs, hydrangea, and lavender wrapped in cinnamon colored ribbon for bouquets and centerpieces. You can also add a few white roses to lighten the atmosphere.  Alternatively, use clear vases for centerpieces and put brown gems or rocks at the bottom before putting the flowers.

Pale Gold with Black or White

Pairing pale gold with either black or white is a perfect color palette for a winter wedding. Pale gold is elegant and brings to mind the glow of winter sunlight or fresh snow. Add this glow to your wedding ceremony with subtle gold accents and lots of candlelight.

These are some of your favorite winter wedding color ideas that we think will inspire you. However, don’t just limit yourself to the traditional winter wedding colors like white and silver. Get bold and put your spin on any color palette to make it truly yours!
