When we think of winter weddings, many of us imagine the more traditional colour schemes of red and gold or blends of various deep tones. In reality, the options for winter wedding colour schemes are abundant, from festive favourites to variations on copper and frosted pastels. Let’s take a look at some of our favourites.
Navy and Silver
How we love the thought of a starry winter sky, pairing deep midnight blue with silver and perhaps even a touch of gold. It’s romantic and elegant, with navy a perfect choice for your bridesmaids.

Delicate pastel tones are generally thought of as perfect colours for spring and summer weddings. Add dusky lavender, grey and muted tones of green to offer a wintery edge.

Blush Pink and Burgundy
Take the classic winter burgundy and give it a twist with the addition of pretty blush pink. This paler tone takes the weight out of the heavy burgundy, while the deeper hue brings warmth and that winter vibe.

Grey-blue and White
We love this romantic, delicate, wintery vibe. Add a hint of silver and embrace the grey by blending different depths of the shade, from dove grey to charcoal. If you’re looking to create a serene, relaxed vibe, this is a great choice.

Copper, White and Green
Fresh, clean and contemporary, this colour scheme works well in both country and city settings. Copped is easily incorporated through candlesticks and vases, white linen is effortlessly elegant and stunning greens come through in garlands and wreaths. We’re particularly partial to eucalyptus... and mistletoe of course!

We love the classic, contemporary style of black and white - the perfect choice for an evening wedding with a black tie dress code. Take it a step further and add rose gold to the mix, modernising the look and lending a little warmth.

Red and Gold
Nothing says Christmas quite like red and gold, with a hint of green too of course. It’s wonderfully romantic, giving you the opportunity to incorporate red roses and a fabulous Christmas tree!

We love moody, decadent purples with deep blues and greens. If you’re feeling bold, add a pop of colour, perhaps yellow or peach. This winter wedding colour scheme makes a statement and is just the thing if you love a more boho style of celebration.
