wedding colors for winter

Imagining yourself walking (down the aisle) in a winter wonderland? Winter is a magical time of year for a wedding. It’s a time to get cozy and gather family around you, create a festive and opulent occasion, or escape to a peaceful snowy landscape. Bring the beauty of winter into your celebration with these color combinations and venue ideas.

What’s the inspiration for your winter wedding?

December, January, February

Your inspiration Your venue Your colors
A cozy log cabin A barn, lodge, or wooded estate Ivory, tan, and red, or cinnamon, ivory, and wine
A winter wonderland A ballroom, an airy event space, or a lodge with a view White and silver
Forest foliage A ballroom, barn, or wooded estate Evergreen, ivory, and gold
The holidays A mountain resort, ballroom, theater, or lodge Evergreen, burgundy, and white
Winter harvest A winery, ballroom, or barn Plum, sage, and gold

Evergreen foliage and serene snowscapes are what make winter special. Whatever venue you choose, you can capture the essence of the season with fragrant evergreen garlands and frosty metallic accents. Jewel tones create a luxurious atmosphere for formal events, or you can look to winter produce and spices for color inspiration for a rustic look. Think cozy for your favors and after-ceremony treats: blankets, gloves, mulled wine, and cocoa will warm hands and hearts.
