Snowy Color Palettes for Your Winter Wedding

We just love winter weddings and the color palettes that come alive! The winter of 2018-2019 will be no exception and we can already tell it will have some of the richest and most romantic color combinations that we just love to use in our designs!

Pear, Pomegranate, and Blush

How about Pomegranate, pear and Blush used with soft natural organic elements, free form shapes, lush and wispy. - such as shown in the wreath.

Tumeric and Sky Blue

For those who are outdoorsy and love the blue sky and yellow sunshine we love to incorporate breezy fabrics, and rich mustardy turmeric with rich sky blues, periwinkle, and creams.

Gold, Apricot and Cream

Another of our favorites is the Gold, Apricot and White and for those who want an even soft almost monochromatic pallet - shades of custard and ivory are very warm, and inviting like a watercolor with velvet and lace.

Brides-to-be are already picking out their 2019 wedding colors and planning for nuptials in the new year. If you’re among the flock of 2019 brides, here’s a look at the color trends we are seeing pop up in the fashion world.

We expect to see brides incorporating these trendy new colors with classic favorites. A good wedding color palette has three or more shades. Common rule of thumb for color is 60-30-10. Here’s what that means: aim to balance visuals with 60% of your primary wedding color, 30% of the secondary, and 10% of the final accent color.

Winter Bordeaux and Dove

Bring striking tones into the dreary grays of winter with a deep pomegranate red like bordeaux or claret. Accent these colors with the trendy metallic silver. To create balance and avoid oversaturation from the red, choose a cool gray or blue to go with it. We love the look of skyfog, or dove. Altogether, this creates a calm background so the red and silver will really pop.

In the end, it’s important to choose wedding colors for your big day that align with your wedding vision and personal style. Just because a color is trendy and in-season doesn’t mean you have to use it! Like we said, you have plenty of room to play around with these wedding color trends. After all, combining trendy and classic is itself a major upcoming trend! 

Since this is the wedding industry, expect the 2019 wedding color trends to be a mixture of something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.

Let us know: what are your favorite wedding colors? Do any of the 2019 wedding colors or palettes strike your fancy?
