Winter Wedding Color Palettes for Winter 2020
By Katy Eriks on 2020-07-27
Weddings are likely to look a little different this year. When you first got engaged you probably didn’t think you would have to deal with quarantine, social distancing, and mask requirements as part of your plans. Maybe you planned to marry in the spring but pushed your date into the winter instead. Or, your 250 person guest count became an intimate crowd of less than 50. But, maybe a winter wonderland wedding has always been your dream. Whatever the scenario of your wedding this year, we’re here to provide some inspiration on winter wedding colors as you get ready for the big day!
Champagne and Gold
Champagne and gold can easily be incorporated into your wedding with beaded bridesmaids dresses, hammered gold flatware, and gold tie bars for the guys. In keeping with your theme, consider having a champagne flute waiting for each guest to usher them into your sparkling cocktail hour. These creamy colors pair well with dark navy, charcoal gray, and lush greens and can help add texture to your table settings.
Platinum and Steel
Nothing says winter wonderland quite like shades of silver and gray. We love monochromatic weddings with gray suits and silver ties and a colorful boutonniere that pops off of the color palette. Consider shades of purple or antique blue as your accent colors. Set the mood for your big day with crystal chandeliers and a decadent dessert bar.
Hunter Green and Scarlet
While red and green may seem like obvious color choices for a winter wedding, it is all about how you use these colors to step up your wedding style. Plaid is trending for winter 2020 weddings and we love to see ties and pocket squares that combine green, red, blue, and cream. For decor, plaid prints can be added to your napkins, escort cards and programs. Hunter green bridesmaids dresses pair great with blue or gray suits and red ranunculus or anemone flowers.
Burgundy and Taupe
Still in the red family, without looking too much like a holiday color, burgundy may be the most popular choice for winter weddings. We love burgundy dinner jackets, ties, and burgundy trimmed pocket squares, especially as options to help the groom stand out. Taupe bridesmaids dresses and green bouquets can help make your wedding warm and inviting. And, don’t forget to serve matching Merlot wine to your guests as well.
Even if your wedding is taking place in your backyard, living room, or local courthouse, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have every detail you’ve envisioned. And, if you’re opting for a small ceremony this year and a big party for your one year anniversary, we hope this is a bit of inspiration to keep up the excitement of planning.
