There is something so beautiful and so special about winter weddings. I think often we can be all too eager to opt for a summer date because we’re counting on the (super unreliable) weather when a winter wedding would be just as beautiful and a fraction of the cost.
Very often the colour palette of choice for a winter wedding is red. Now don’t get me wrong, this can be and very often is, stunning but because I think it’s important to break the mould, the colour palette for this board is something a little different. The rich green and purple used here retain the luxury and warmth of that ever-popular red but are something just a little bit different and I can already hear guests gasping with amazement at bridesmaids in that beautiful shade of green. (The combination of purple and green in all it’s many shades and hues is a fail safe one. Way back when I launched the blog I featured this one which just shows how you can create a completely different feel by simply adjusting the shades of particular colours.)
As for the rest of the wedding I see an uber modern venue just like the fabulous Haymarket Hotel in central London, a super chic cake like this one from April Reed a roaring fire and a twinkling (but ever so chic) Christmas tree. For favours I’d choose modern, minimalist Christmas decorations and for flowers I’d pick something like the beautiful Anenomies pictured above and team them with winter berries and ivy to keep the winter/Christmas feel going. Perfect!
