What are the colors for winter weddings?

Light pink and pale blush, navy blue and forest green. While this trio of colors may be synonymous with July, they also work surprisingly well for winter. Deep red, wintry white and navy blue make this floral creation appropriate for cold weather. The horns are the perfect finishing touch for the season.

Perfect for a modern, minimalist vibe, a white and grey color palette will give your wedding a streamlined, ultra-chic aesthetic. Use a variety of textures such as raw silk, velvet, vellum or faux fur to give this color palette some dimension and depth (this set of winter wedding invitations is just one example of how to achieve this). Reds and browns are the perfect colors for autumn-winter weddings. These earth tones are rich with life and act as a great metaphor for your happily ever after.

This color combination also provokes a very healthy appetite. Use brown sparingly and lean on touches of red to make things pop. It's not a combination, but another color theme to follow is the traditional all-white hue. An all-white wedding, which is very reminiscent of cold winter temperatures and snowy landscapes, can be refreshing and tremendously spectacular in winter.

Not only is it clean, sophisticated and luxurious, but it is also surprisingly easy to implement, as most of the wedding elements are already white. Although white may seem like a simple color, it can make a big impact. To liven up the décor, use plenty of textures and dimensions at the wedding, so that the color doesn't just run to nothing. Combine different fabrics, plants and greenery to add dimension.

Don't shy away from adding greenery and natural materials to liven up the look.
