Winter brides, unite! Want to add a seasonal touch to your wedding occasion without going overboard? We have some suggestions for you! While there’s nothing wrong with a basic red and green color scheme, we understand if you’re looking for something a little different, so we put up other wedding color scheme ideas to inspire your winter wedding decor.
We looked to magnificent winter scenery for inspiration. There are the blue undertones of freshly fallen snow and that rare crystal clear winter sky, as well as the stormy grays of dreary days and winter blizzards rolling in. One is full of magic and ice, while the other is moodier and earthier. You can’t go wrong with a white-on-white palette that turns your wedding function into a modern winter wonderland.
Other color schemes put a spin on modest festive motifs. Rather than going all out with red, we recommend mixing varying shades of red—from crimson to burgundy—into your bouquets and tablescapes. Do you like evergreen accents? To bring out the dark side of winter, pair them with a crisp black rather than red.
- Winter Blues
Consider the winter landscape as a source of color ideas. Whether you’re designing the tablescapes or the backgrounds for the wedding ceremony, bring out the deep blue of a crisp winter sky and the dusty shadows of a fresh layer of snow. Boost the overall effect of the enchantment by sprinkling in a few metallic notes here and there.
A collection of three large abstract canvases create an eye-catching masterpiece in this one-of-a-kind backdrop for the wedding event. A blustery snow day is conjured up by watercolors in icy tones of blue and gray, which are tempered by the cozy atmosphere of candles that are flickering.
We are huge fans of wedding ideas that are not only practical but also appealing to the eye. Guests who attend your wedding should be able to stay warm thanks to rolled-up blankets in a variety of blue hues.
- Black Tie Elegance
The color black doesn’t have to imply gloom and doom. On the other hand, it takes on an air of elegance when combined with gilded details, and it exudes a sense of festivity when combined with evergreen accents. The combination of posh and rustic, with a touch of festive glam, is the ideal way to celebrate the holiday season.
Inviting guests with black invitation cards that feature gold foil typography is a contemporary and dramatic choice. We are particularly taken with the brushstrokes that have been foiled in gold at the top of the invitation because they give off an artistic sense.
Aisle markers made out of floating candles, pinecones, and greenery are a great way to bring some warmth to otherwise cold black ceremonial seating.
This table setting manages to make rustic materials look more elegant than they ever have before. When placed next to wooden plate chargers and a centerpiece that is inspired by the forest and has foliage and antlers, black linens and gold mercury candles give off an upscale vibe.
- Berry Tones
Flip the traditional Christmas red color scheme on its head by using a gloomy color palette of berry-toned tones. Different hues of red, ranging from wine to crimson, give richness and texture to holiday decorations by going off the usual holiday route. Combining flowers that are in season during the same time of year is an excellent strategy for achieving this appearance.
When contrasted with a white bridal dress, a bouquet with deep tones of burgundy and scarlet looks really stunning. This bride finished off her look with a lace wrap that was repurposed from her mother’s wedding gown.
Decorate a circular arch with luscious foliage and scarlet and white blooms to achieve the appearance of an industrial structure that has been given a touch of a garden.
A trio of sugar-frosted berries is an excellent way to add a pop of color to golden cocktails. Add a touch of holiday cheer with a leaf from an evergreen tree.
A subtle reference to the holidays is made by using wine-colored tablecloths and centerpieces in shades of ruby red. To create an atmosphere reminiscent of winter, decorate the tablecloth with pinecones and swaths of greenery.
