But new trends for winter color palettes are fairly generous, from the classical festive favorites to variations on copper, metallics, pinks, frosted pastels, greys, blues, and so much more.
And you don’t need to worry about seasonality if you decide to opt for a preserved flower bouquet, which is an excellent wedding flower option that many brides are still unaware of. Preserved wedding flowers are beautiful, natural, budget-friendly, won’t wilt or die, are not subject to seasonality, and are just as stunning as fresh wedding flowers.
Here’s a is a roundup of our favorite winter wedding color schemes!
Dreaming of a White Wedding
Reminiscent of a winter fairytale, a white wedding is associated with light and purity. The white wedding will always be a staple of bridal fashion as this monochromatic choice remains forever modern and elegant.
If you’re using only white for your winter wedding colors, you should incorporate a variety of textures so that the colors don’t fall flat. Also, combine various fabrics, patterns, sparkle, plants, and greenery to add dimension.
Tip: If your dress is white, and you don’t like the look of white-on-white, throw in a collar of dark green ruscus leaves to make the bouquet stand out.
Pretty in Pink and Various Combinations
Blush Pink With Berry Tones
Want to make a bold statement in the middle of a quiet winter wonderland? Berry tones blended with the daring blush pink will do it. From cranberry to raspberry and every shade in between, this cheerful combination will add a touch of color and energy to your special day.
Tip: Add a bit of ivory, and you’ll have a palette that’s lively and joyful yet romantic.
Blush Tones With Burgundy
Take the classic winter burgundy and twist it with some pretty blush pink. The paler tone balances out the darkness of burgundy, while the deeper hue brings warmth and the winter vibe. It’s an ideal color palette for radiating elegance, sophistication, and beauty.
Red Wedding Accents
You can never get it wrong with pure red accents. The traditional and romantic red bouquet is a timeless symbol of love, passion, and romance.

Red & White
As festive and seasonal as you can get, red and white are the most classic winter wedding colors. Synonymous with the holiday season, they will bring a sense of festive joy to your wedding. Perhaps the trick to smartly embracing these colors into your wedding style is to opt for an overall minimalist theme. The colors alone will probably be enough to give your wedding all the Christmas-y vibes.

They’ll also add a contemporary feel to your wedding and are ideal for incorporating trendy accents. If you love cool colors, then this stylish match is for you. Add a hint of silver and embrace the grey by blending different depths of the shade, from dove grey to charcoal. If you’re looking to create a serene, chill atmosphere, these colors might be the lucky winners.
Tip: Throw in a bit of romantic ivory for a touch of warmth.
Although pastel tones are generally considered perfect colors for spring and summer weddings, frosted pastels can surely bring on a wintry vibe. Add dusky lavender, grey, and muted tones of green to summon the frosty style.
