But we’re here to help because you deserve a wedding that is as elegant and timeless as you’ve always dreamed of! Keep reading to get inspired by our favorite trendy winter wedding color palettes.

Emerald and Gold

If you’ve been dreaming of a winter palette with lots of greenery, go with an emerald-focused palette. This deep shade is elegant and exudes luxury, especially when it’s paired with metallic gold accents. Emerald also looks beautiful on everyone, plus it perfectly contrasts white. You might also add in a touch of grey or brown. For flowers, we recommend white roses or garden roses, white ranunculus, and lamb’s ear eucalyptus. If you prefer, you can also use seasonal greenery.

Icy Blue Hues

A popular color come winter is blue, next to every shade. From a dove grey to a light mauve and a sky blue. These colors will lend a cool and icy vibe to your event while maintaining a chic and modern look. Paired with bright white and metallic silver or gold, it will be timeless and airy. This range of colors makes it easy to pull off a mismatched bridal party, which will lend a lot of dimensions. For your flowers, you can feature pampas for a more boho look. Or go with a traditional arrangement, with white anemones, gardenias, and bright greenery.

Sage and White

A palette similar to emerald and gold, sage and white is a muted alternative. This color combo is more preferable for a bohemian or rustic-themed event. For this palette, you can add more color with a range of ivory and browns, plus metallic gold. The darker browns you add in, the more dimension you will achieve. When choosing flowers for your arrangements, consider garden roses, camellias, and eucalyptus. Meanwhile, pampas grass and bird feathers will make for fun inclusions.

Crimson and Gold

Prefer a bold winter wedding palette? You can’t go wrong with crimson. A deep red, crimson exudes sophistication and class. The perfect choice for those who want to make a statement! To complement this color, add in small touches of pink – but not too much. As well as black, deep plum, and metallic gold. This mix of colors will be a memorable palette for a winter wedding, that will contrast well with a cool outdoor setting. For flowers, we recommend red and plum ranunculus with king proteas and lots of dark greenery.

Black & Brown

We love a moody winter wedding, and you can achieve just that with a palette of black and brown. These colors make for a dark but warm setting, ideal for a cozy indoor wedding. Especially if your venue features a rustic or industrial interior. However, these colors also work well for a formal, black-tie affair, as they contrast beautifully with bright white or ivory. When it comes to decor, make use of seasonal foliage like pine and pinecones. Or keep it elegant with all-white florals and dark greenery.
