Winter is coming…

If you couldn’t tell by the biting, chilly air in the morning or the Christmas decor out in some store fronts, winter is coming! Though I am not one to jump up and down in excitement at the cold, I do love the winter wedding season. Not only does snow make for beautiful, breathtaking wedding photos, but the winter season also offers stunning wedding color combinations. When it comes down to it, the possibilities for choosing your wedding colors is truly endless and there is nothing more awesome than when a bride is able to take a color palette that is basically unheard of, and use it to make something spectacular on wedding day. But there are just some color combinations that are perfect for a certain time of year, and these are some of my favorites to see in the winter. If you’re reading this and aren’t getting married in the winter, don’t worry! If you like one of these palettes, use it anyway! One thing I will never stop telling my brides: What makes your wedding the most beautiful is that it reflects you and your future hubby. Make it your own!

Side note:

I have created all of these palettes based on my favorite winter color combos and have used various pictures from the internet to give you an idea of how they would look for a wedding. The place each photo was found is listed below each collage.

Pretty Palettes

“Winter Berry”

This palette is one of my favorites because it combines reds and purples beautifully, allowing you to incorporate colorful options together while keeping your theme wintery.

“Icy Blue”

I love how this palette plays on the icy winter days. It’s truly magical when paired with gold accents and is perfect for the couple who wants to enjoy a sense of a winter wonderland on their special day.

“New Years”

This color palette is truly timeless for any black tie wedding, no matter what season you’re getting married. I love it for winter because it reminds me of the glitz and glitter of New Years day. Here, I have styled it as a formal, modern wedding. If you truly want to go for the “New Years” look, use more glam and gold. Any way you style this palette, it’s bound to be a show stopper.

The Christmas palette is nothing new to the winter wedding season, and for good reason because it is beautiful and can be styled in so many different ways. Some use bright red with hints of dusty greens to capture the true “Christmas” feel, though I like to play with the darker side of the Christmas colors. Here, I have gone with a less obvious version and combined burgundy and a very dark grey with the dusty, natural looking greens. However you like it, this choice is perfect for a December wedding.

“Winter Greens”

This color combination is by far my favorite for ANY time of year. Greenery paired with white, with accents of soft browns and golds will never be outdated. There are so many ways to style these colors and they can truly work for any time of year. Here, I have gone for a more “woodsy” theme using Evergreen as one of the main greenery choices.
