If you are having (or thinking of having) a winter wedding in 2012, choosing wedding colors may be a hard decision. There is no rule that your wedding colors must be red and green to have a winter wedding. There are some really beautiful color schemes for winter that may surprise you.
One of my favorite color schemes is a simple all white/ivory wedding with hints of color to pull everything together. An all white or ivory wedding can make a big statement and I love the idea of using a light blue or pink to highlight everything. You can use branches, pinecones, and ornaments (which can double as favors) as accents in your décor.
If you are a girl that loves bling then a winter wedding might be perfect for you! Crystals and gems highlighted against a white or ivory backdrop is stunning.
Another untraditional color scheme for a winter wedding is teal, brown and silver. Using all white flowers give a modern winter feeling.
Of course you can’t go wrong with using burgundy or red but that doesn’t mean your décor has to scream Christmas. Small touches of red go long way and some brides are adding black for a modern, yet romantic feel. You can even add an aqua blue color to spice it up!
Just a tip… if you are planning a 2012 winter wedding wait until January to stock up on all of the leftover Christmas decorations. It is inexpensive and if you are crafty you have plenty of time to create some wonderful centerpieces to give you a perfect Winter Wedding!
