Getting married during winter is an excellent choice for couples who are trying to save money. It can be complicated to find the perfect color scheme for a winter wedding, however. Unlike autumn weddings, colors like brown and orange do not seem to work too well during winter. Luckily, there are a number of beautiful color schemes which can work out great for winter weddings.
Silver and Blue
This is a personal favorite color scheme for winter weddings. Many people decorate their Christmas trees with silver and blue ornaments. In addition to white, silver and blue are generally associated with the snow and ice that is characteristic of winter. This color scheme can be perfect for couples who are planning a winter wonderland theme. Have your bridesmaids wear a frosty blue. Opt for light blue and silver décor – which could consist of snowflakes and icicles.
Red and White
Red and white are the two colors which are generally associated with Santa. Since this is a very popular wedding color scheme, you do not have to opt for a Santa theme, of course. There are many beautiful wedding dresses which incorporate both of these colors into the design. Have the bridesmaids wear red and find ways to incorporate both of these colors into your centerpieces.
Red and Green
Couples who are planning on a Christmas wedding theme will of course want to think about a red and green color scheme. This scheme can be a lot of fun. Choose vibrant shades of red and green for the bridesmaid dresses, centerpieces and décor. Find ways to incorporate Santa and the spirit of Christmas into your decorations. If you think that red and green is too tacky for even a Christmas wedding, you may want to think about choosing red or green and silver for your color scheme. Sage and red can also work well.
Silver and Gold
Although silver and gold are not normally thought to mesh well together, the one exception is during the holiday season. If you are planning on a Christmas wedding theme, this color scheme could be a great option. Choose silver or gold bridesmaids dresses and incorporate both colors into your centerpieces. Consider incorporating a lot of gold flowers into the wedding cake.
Your Favorite Color Scheme
Who says that you can’t use whatever color scheme you want for a winter wedding? If the colors don’t match the scenery or don’t seem to do anything for the holiday season…so what? It is your wedding day, so feel free to choose any color scheme you love. If you like hot pink, bright yellow or tiger lily orange, feel free to go with it. You should be entitled to the wedding that you have always dreamed of, regardless of the time of year.
