Winter Wedding Colour Trends
Colder months have arrived again, and even though, the Maltese winters are quite mild, the longer nights and festive atmosphere is bringing the opportunity of those magical winter weddings. When we set up the Big Day in these months, people often tend to think of an authentic Christmas wedding, with snowflakes, romantic candlelight, pine cones, and the traditional combination of red and green colours. It can actually present a lovely, cosy Christmas themed ceremony. However, in this article, we collected three different colour selections for the perfect winter wedding so you can be sure to create an unforgettable memory, without giving the feel of a qlichlé-like postcard.
These colour selections will show you three concepts and will guide you through the most popular winter wedding colour trends.
There may be nothing you want more than a traditional Christmas themed wedding. As an alternative, you might dream of a festive and glowing decoration to bring a warm and chic look, or maybe wishing to have a frosty winter wonderland with cooler shades and a snow-covered venue. Knowing that the possibilities are endless and the choice of colour can be a tough decision, we collected some ideas we want to share with you, to create the wedding of your dreams.
Luxury and Elegance
Colours: Gold, Champagne, Pastel, Beige
When the weather turns chilly, and we all need to search for our winter coats, what could be a better option than to bring a bright and elegant decoration that will glitter away the moody winter days? Alluring gold and soft champagne tones can be easily incorporated into your design by using them in your invitation card, choosing a champagne-hued fabric for the linens and chair covers, or even for the bridesmaid dresses. Textured table linens are a great way to give warmth. Combined with golden and copper centrepieces, they highlight the festivity of the season, while lighter pastel colours will gently maintain the soft and romantic luxe of your wedding.
Black and white themes turned out to be another way of making the event elegant. The colour limitations can be balanced by adding a touch of gold or bronze, while the simplicity and discrete decoration will guarantee the exclusive and refined look.
Magical Winter Wonderland
Colours: Silver, White, Blue, Violet, Lilac, Ultra Violet, Grey,
Sparkling lights, icicle-inspired centrepieces, snow-covered aisle and reception.
There is so much to love and be amazed by when we are planning to set a frosty winter decoration! From vases to glasses and lights, snow can be added to almost any other feature of the composition. Having snow-white flowers and snow-covered branches arching above the aisle is not only beautiful but also matching the recent colour trends. Pantone chooses the ultra-violet to be the colour of 2018, and there is no better tone of purple that inspires mysterious and cool lightning, accompanied by ice-blue and lilac shades. Brides will have a wide range of blue hues to choose from, with elegant elbow length gloves and fur stoles. Multiply the shine with crystal or silver chandeliers to add a striking element to your dazzling winter wonderland. If you find your venue slightly cold or rigid, you can implement classic red forest berries with holly and ivy to the tables and the aisle, to bring some vibrant freshness to the composite design. To harmonise the theme with the small details decorate your bouquet with muted hue colours and crystal brooches.
Cosy Details for all Senses
Colours: Red, Green, Gold, White, Champagne, Ivory
What could be more authentic than using the classic colours of Christmas for a winter wedding? The eye-catching gold and champagne will take care of the soft tones and the discrete glow. The classic red gives warmth, while the green tones like emerald and sage will bring the sensation of natural refreshment. Even though this palette is used around the world every year, no other theme could be a better foundation for those sweet little touches that make your day unique, creative and memorable.
What about a mesmerising ceremony in front of a fireplace, followed by a woodsy furnished dining venue? Blankets and the sweet fragrance of mulled wine can create a rustic, still warm and cosy atmosphere. Get inspired by nature! Pine cones, berries, evergreens, cinnamon are all excellent materials for table runners and centrepieces.
Lately, a trend shows where the newlyweds are decorating with wreaths that the guest can take home with them after the wedding, keeping a lovely memory about your special day. You can also get yourself into the hearts of the smaller ones by offering cream-topped hot chocolate
The fabric of the dresses is a crucial detail to keep an eye on since no one wants to see freezing bridesmaids, or a shivering bride walking down the aisle.
As the epitome of luxury, silk is one of the most popular choices when it comes to winter bridal dresses. Pique, velvet, and brocade are also beautiful, warm fabrics. The heaviness of these materials will give you that extra coverage you might need in the cooler venues, and as a plus, they commonly enhance an elegant and royal look. Fur stoles and detailed crystal designs are great ways to achieve that delicate shine that every bride dreams of.
There is always something enchanting in Winter Weddings. If you want to take your guest to a beautiful and unique ceremony, these ideas will definitely help you to create a wedding that people will never forget.
