Deciding on a colour scheme is one of the early tasks marrying couples have to contend with. In fact, it’s the next logical wedding planning step after choosing your venue. Your wedding colour palette has such a huge part to play in your wedding day, and it’s a bigger role than many brides and grooms anticipate as WeddingWire details:
“A wedding color palette has always helped set the tone for the big day. Black and white denotes a sophisticated, formal affair; green and pink can complement a garden wedding; gold dictates a more glam setting. But these days, an array of colors (or lack thereof) without a strong connection can work together to create a certain vibe — think a rainbow of hues to create a feeling of whimsy and fun, or neutrals for a timeless touch.”
Creating a wedding colour palette that works for you and your chosen venue isn’t the easiest. If you’re tying the knot in winter, however, taking a hint from the season can give you the inspiration you need to ensure a truly dreamy scheme.
We share the five dreamy colour schemes that are made for winter weddings, and could just be made for you…
White and gold
There’s something decadent about keeping things simple and sophisticated with this classic white and gold scheme. It’s rich and luxurious without feeling too ostentatious and offers a winter-friendly twist on the traditional white wedding.
To let your very own winter wonderland shine through, use gold as an accent colour by adding touches of this sparkling shade to your table settings, floral arrangements and bridal ensemble.

Blush and burgundy
Add a twist to a classic Christmas colour with the up-and-coming blush and burgundy colour scheme. These two stunning shades may be different tones of the same colour, but they work beautifully together to ensure a striking, seasonally inspired winter wedding palette.
Baby blue and pink
You may think pastels are out for winter weddings, but think again! This baby blue and pink scheme is a top colour combination this season, and the results are fun, feminine and utterly beautiful.
To add extra interest to these pastel shades, play around with texture. Use linen, feathers and foliage to create a cute, cosy and intimate feel in your ceremony space and on your wedding tables.
Copper and green
Whatever the weather is outside, you can celebrate your nuptials in nature with this beautiful colour scheme.
Copper and green is a colour combination that’s inspired by the great outdoors. Incorporate wood, real greenery and dried foliage to ensure a warm palette that’s in touch with the natural world. Use copper to dress your bridesmaids, accessorise yourself and your groom, and add some understated, sophisticated shine to your cake and centrepieces.
Navy and peach
Combining a classic jewel tone with a softer shade is a great way to complement the season and increase the cosiness of your winter wedding day.
Navy blue and peach work wonderfully together, making it a striking colour scheme for spring and summer. Add in a hint of seasonal plum and you have a contrastingly beautiful, glamourous mix that works wonders at autumn and winter weddings too.
