If you’re looking for winter wedding colors, it can be easy to think that you have to limit yourself to green and red, and making the whole thing look like a giant Christmas party. But if we haven’t convinced you that Winter Wedding Magic is real yet, let’s look at winter wedding colors, those amazing hues that come along with season.
Not only is winter not just about holiday colors, you don’t have to stick to just snowy white either! There are so many dreamy, moody options that bring out the best of the season—from festive, holiday-inspired metallics to icy shades of blue or lavender to deep, rich, ultra-cozy shades you could dive into. So, let’s talk winter wedding colors, the many shades of the most enchanting season.
The Shades Of White winter Wedding colors
What is more iconic and enchanting for a winter wedding than snowy white? It’s the shade that falls from the sky and blankets the trees, the pure white look that makes everything seem so silent and calm and still and otherworldly. The shades of white wedding is restrained and sleek, while still being pretty and ethereal.
Saturated Winter Wedding Colors
If all-white isn’t your thing, you can go the other direction with a rich and saturated high-contrast palette that puts dramatic pops of shadowy, striking shades of burgundy, oxblood, evergreen, and indigo against a crisp, white foundational palette. Think of it like coat-wrapped carolers in the snow. There’s something ultra-romantic about the drama of sultry, dark, touchable textures and moody shades that come together for an elegant, vintage vibe with just the right amount of holiday.
Ice-inspired Winter Wedding Colors
Go with colors as light as an early snowfall, with shades that recall a wintry landscape with a delicate flush of color that adds a little more. Barely-there lavenders and icy blues, stripped down shale, and effortlessly elegant slate. More subtle than spring’s candy-colored pastels, more delicate that autumn’s hearty brown and reds, this restrained minimalism leaves a clean, fresh impact that’s cool without being chilly.
Metallic Winter Wedding Colors
And then, those metallics. If you’re a pedal-to-the-metallic kinda couple, you toss those sparkly, shiny shades around like it’s the last New Year’s Eve before the apocalypse. For those who like sparkle but are not Extra types, I say go subtle. That means mixing them up with a hefty dose of matte shades and textures. Silver is definitely your wintry friend, but let it sing—don’t crowd it with too much noise, decor, and clutter. A pop of festive gold, rose gold, or bronze among a soft, cream landscape can go far. Think: a touch of loud New Year’s Eve glitter, or a hint of celebratory holiday sequins, but with the contrast of a quiet white, champagne, or clean gray, as serene and stripped-down as a cozy winter’s night.
Greenery-inspired winter wedding colors
And, let’s not forget our winter wedding MVP, the evergreen tree. When the rest of the world’s blooms are throwing in their petals, she’s in it to win it all season with her gleaming, green majesty. Give her some credit with an evergreen-white-brown palette reminiscent of scenes you’d see from a fantasy sleigh ride. Go green and all-natural with your “florals,” layering the beautiful, intricate textures of conifers: drape fir cuttings on tables or spunky spruce boughs in bouquets, and pepper an occasional, tastefully placed pinecone throughout.
