I’m using charcoal grey BM dresses and pink flowers becasue I wanted a bright color for contrast.

DH and I just had our ceremony but are planning a formal wedding/celebration in Jan ’12. As of now, our colors are garnet red and ice blue (more dusty than aqua).

I like using silver in a winter wedding. You can add lots of sparkle.

I’m getting married in Janurary and because it’s so close to the holidays (January 8th) and we have several religions in our family, I am doing my best to keep away from any Christmas or Hanukkah related colors.  I really didn’t want to do any red or green.  I’m not a “midnight” blue/winter ice kind of person.  So instead of doing a snowflakes and sparkles type thing, we’re opting for a pretty formal, black and white.  I think navy and white would also be nice.  We’re going to do black bridesmaids dresses, and black lace and brocade type designs on everything else.  Hope that helps a bit!

 

Also, does anyone have any ideas on how to keep a black and white wedding from feeling so overly formal?  I don’t want it to turn into black tie, but I also don’t want to get into cheesy prom dress territory.  We’re currently thinking about this dress in either black lace on top of black, or black lace on top of white, and using that as a going off point.

January would be good with a jewel tone or metalic color. I would stay away from pastels, because that screams spring, and harvest colors like orange/brown/rust. I would think something like a deep purple or fuschia with silver or white. One thing to do is to look at your venue and see the colors that are already there, so you know what you can work with.

I am a January bride which originally broke my poor lil’ heart because I thought you couldn’t have a beautiful winter wedding. Then I saw and fell in love with a deep blue, not navy, not teal, somewhere in between. At David’s Bridal they call it Juniper blue. I’m pairing it with silver and white. 

I agree that jewel tones are best for the winter – it’s the perfect time to use those deep, rich colors.
