While most brides prefer to get married underneath a spring or summer sun, some couples choose to tie the knot in autumn or winter. Each season brings its own level of magic, as well as their own color scheme. While fall’s palette may strike you as obvious (think reds, oranges, yellows and chocolate), winter can be a bit more of a challenge, though no less wondrous.
While fall and spring are seasons of subtle, soft colors, summer and winter are all about the boldly contrasting hues, making the colder months perfect for a modern aesthetic. One of the most romantic and powerful accent pigments you can incorporate is red. It will bring warmth, fire and passion to an otherwise “cool” color scheme; because this hue is such an attention grabber, use it to guide the eye to the focal points you think are the most important, whether it is the font of the invitation, the flowers in your hand or the cake. Keep in mind that red is flattering tone for a wide range of skin tones, and also invigorates appetite and lust. Because of the emotion it naturally evokes, this makes it the ideal accent color for the popular and modern combination of black-and-white that, by itself, may seem devoid of excitement.
Blue, the coldest of all the options on the color wheel, is perhaps the obvious choice for a winter wedding. One of the most popular wedding colors in general, it has a regal air that creates a calm, assuring atmosphere. However, be careful with this particular option; too much blue can actually have a depressing effect and make the overall energy flat. Therefore, consider either featuring it with lighter colors like white, beige or pink, or featuring a lighter tint. Another wintery trend, metallic, will also add dynamism to the wedding. Brides with fair features will look especially dazzling and wintery when sporting this color paired with silver, as seen with the Sleeping Turquoise collection found at ShopHQ.
Brown is one color that can be combined with numerous other colors without clashing. Combine it with ivory for a classic look, while brown and pink has a more modern appeal. Brown can also evoke the feeling of nature and if paired with dark green gives any wedding a crisper look that hints at rejuvenation in an otherwise snow-covered time. The options with brown are numerous and can work well for both formal and casual wedding venues.
This post would be incomplete without mentioning white, the most wintery color of them all. It can be combined with any color for a variety of effects; pair it with one of the above hues for a dramatically contemporary and chic effect; for vintage charm, use off-whites and combine it with cooler tints of pink, lavender, greens and blues. You can also incorporate white’s darer cousin gray for a less contrasting visual. This shading automatically evokes class and timelessness, and has the ability to mute otherwise overly bold colors.
Plum and Forest Green are two colors that are made by combining cool blue with warmer hues (red and yellow respectively). The result is that darker shades will provide a touch of whimsicalness while harmonizing with the season’s sophistication and formality. Another trend that belongs in any winter wedding is metallic silver and gold. The shimmer effect can brighten up any humdrum color scheme; silver will suggest the notion of snowflakes and icicles; and gold will create a lovely contrast to the season, adding glittering warmth while maintaining the impression of royalty.
While recent trending wedding colors have been shades of mustard and gray, gold and pink and purple, something has to be said for a pure, country blue. This is a beautiful color and it works well with a variety of accent colors. If you love the thoughts of country blue as your wedding color, take a look at these ideas and gain some inspiration.
Country blue paired with a pale teal and periwinkle is absolutely beautiful. This palette works so well together because each color is light and muted, for a fresh look that isn’t overpowering in any way.
This country blue is paired with a spring green color that is unbelievably fresh and stunning. Beautiful light green bridesmaids’ dresses compliment the bride’s ivory dress and the overall look is very spring-like.
For something a little more vibrant, this palette pairs country blue with vivid yellow, turquoise and green. The jewel colors go so well together, and the result is a splash of colors that delights the senses.
Here, different shades of blue are used that give this wedding color palette a very vintage feel. Dark, regal blues perfectly contrast with the lighter country blue colors and the cake brings all of those colors together.
This fresh, frosty look is obtained by combining country blue with gray, baby blue and silver. A brooch bouquet adds a little bling to the look and muted tones keep this palette pleasing to the eye.
Use these ideas to help you determine how to incorporate country blue into your wedding palette.
