I know it’s hard to think about your winter wedding when it’s almost 90 degrees outside. I get it, I’m literally sitting directly in front of my air conditioner as I write this. That being said, we’re always thinking at least 4-6 months ahead here so this actually makes perfect sense. If you’re planning a winter wedding, it’s time to kick things into high gear because that chilly weather will be here before we know it.
I’ve put together some of our favorite winter wedding color palettes to get you in the mood.
Shades of Gray
I’ve been hearing the word “neutral” a lot lately and as much as I love pastels and bright colors alike, gray is really refreshing. Shades of gray (side-note that book makes me rethink writing, “shades of gray” every single time) are a more modern take on your classic black and white.
Love gray but still looking for a more layered look? Try mixing in metals on the big day. There are so many opportunities — jewelry, flatware, vases, the list goes on.

Classic Black and Winter White
Speaking of the good old classic black and white, if you have a power struggle going on in your head between classic and modern, I have a suggestion for you. Keep your color palette black and white but add unexpected twists. When it comes to save the date and invitation land, your choice of fonts can make a big difference here (don’t worry, we’ll help you). Pairing a black and white invitation with more modern or whimsical fonts immediately gives you an extra splash of personality — neither boring nor outlandish.
Wine and Copper
We know that wine isn't a surprise when it comes to wintery colors, but what about adding copper or rose gold to the mix? We love that idea! So soft and pretty. Seriously, we’re thoroughly obsessed.
Black and Blush
If our darling Fat Cat mascot had a formal winter wedding, this invitation would be a contender for sure! I adore how that shiny blush foil pops off of the black background. And that calligraphy-style font — I can’t even. If you’re daring enough to opt for a black invitation, pretty please pick this one.
