Top Winter Wedding Colors

Calling all winter brides! Want to make your wedding seasonal without being overly festive? I’ve got some ideas for you! Hey it’s Rachel with Rachel Z Photography and I have a quick look at some of the top winter wedding colors to inspire your big day!

Winter Blues

Turn to winter weather for color inspiration. Elevate the blue of a clear winter sky and the dusty shadows of a blanket of snow. Add a few metallic notes here and there for a bit of extra magic.

We love a wedding idea that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Roll up blankets in varying shades of blue so guests can keep warm during your nuptials.

Rustic Neutrals

From dried leaves and bare trees to frozen prairies and cozy barns, a neutral palette plays homage to winter’s pastoral side. Think mangers and farmhouses to influence those rustic vibes, from wooden banquet tables and burlap accents to weathered structures and organic bouquets.

Rose gold ferns, white orchids, and dried hydrangeas combine for a natural bouquet full of organic textures that looks like it was plucked straight from the woods. Heighten the look with a velvet taupe ribbon.

Freshen up beige linens with a sprig of greenery and a sweet floral. Gilded flatware lends a dash of glam to an otherwise bucolic setting.

Burlap linens, wooden banquet tables, and white tapered candles are equal parts cozy and inviting in this farm-inspired reception. Add a runner of greenery for a pop of color.

All Black Everything

Black doesn’t need to be dark and dreary. It looks sophisticated when paired with gilded accents and festive when coupled with touches of evergreen. It’s upscale meets rustic, with a dash of holiday glitz—the perfect seasonal combination.

Black invitations with gold-foiled typography are both modern and moody. We especially love the gold-foiled brushstrokes at the top of the invite for an artsy vibe.

Add warmth to black ceremony seating with aisle markers fashioned out of greenery, floating candles, and pinecones.

Rustic has never looked so sophisticated. Black linens and gold mercury candles carry an elevated air next to wood plate chargers and a forest-inspired centerpiece of greenery and antlers.
