Winter officially last from December 21st or 22nd to March 20th or 21st, depending on the year. For those planning a winter wedding, it can be a magical time of year, a time of quiet and calm before the world wakes up to spring. Here are some considerations for a winter wedding. The most important aspect of planning a winter wedding for people who live in places that get snow is that people who are traveling to come to the winter wedding will have to brave the airports and roads at a time of year that might be difficult. This is something to keep in mind if there are lots of family members coming from far away. Once the logistics are planned though, winter can offer some great backdrops for your wedding. Here are some ideas for winter wedding colors.
Winter Wedding Colors: Red, white, and black – The classic wedding colors, these also go well with winter by matching the snow and the leafless trees. The red gives you just enough accent to look absolutely gorgeous against a white backdrop. It’s very easy to find red and white flowers, especially roses.
Winter Wedding Colors: Silver and white – nothing quite says snow like white and silver as your winter wedding theme. They’re both very easy to find items in. White flowers are very easy to come by – calla lilies make beautiful bouquets – and silver is easily incorporated into the décor.
Winter Wedding Colors: Shades of blue – Snow can take on a blue hint sometimes, and so can your wedding party! Instead of having the gentlemen in black and white tuxedos, try navy blue suits; also, bridesmaids can wear different shades suited to each person. You can get tulips in many shades of blue, and orchids as well.
Winter Wedding Colors: Soft grays and purples – A gentle gray and lavender color scheme can give your winter wedding fairy-tale qualities without making the colors seem garish against a white backdrop; these are also very easy colors for bouquets. Pussy willows should be in season for your winter wedding, and they can be an original, unique way to dress up centerpieces and bouquets.
Winter Wedding Colors: Red and forest green – Typically considered Christmas colors, your winter wedding can feature red and green formal wear and décor – for bouquets you can have holly and ivy, even spruce boughs. Spruce would give the wedding a warm aroma, as well.
Whatever your winter wedding colors end up being, congratulations!
