I think deep reds and gold with some accents of natural colors like greenery and brown will get the cozy warm winter feeling you want. Silver I think will be more cool if that is what you want to go for.

Deeper purple and red would be nice!  I would accent with some gold (you said you wanted warm!)

My first wedding was a winter wedding. I used lots of dark green, pinecones, greenery, candles, sparkly things, etc. You could mix both gold and silver, though gold lends itself to warm tones and silver with cool.

Ivy would look lovely. I saw a magazine article recently and the couple had sprayed pine cones in silver and lots of candles The bride dressed the bm’s in red and the groom had a red tie. The bride used berries and lots of dark green in her bouquet.

Hope this helps.

If you want a nice warm feeling but still winter Id go for gold or ivory with another color. I like the idea of red and gold, its very inviting and romantic in my oppinion!

@Stressed_Bride15:  Our wedding was Scottish themed, but our colours were red and black with white and silver accents which sounds similar to what you’re envisioning. I’ll show you a picture of our bridal party and if you like it I can show you more of what we did.

Edit: Posting it shrunk the picture 🙁

@Stressed_Bride15:  I’m doing purple, black and platinum with lots of crystals and my centerpieces are white calla lily bouquets are purple with white bridesmaid dress top is platinum bottom black and shoes in purple. I’m having purple uplights in the room but the chairs will be platinum and the tables black 🙂 I’m hopping the uplights helps not make it too dark but bright and warm ish

I’m doing crimson and gold. I think it will look warm and rich, and hopefully classy!

I’m doing purple/ivory/gold with touches of green –  our wedding is the week after Christmas, so the venue is decorated already.

I LOVE red, white, and gold together, maybe with a touch of pink: not too Christmasy, but warm, inviting, and perfect for winter! It would also look great with a ton of candlelight and candle centerpieces.

I may be biased since my color is red, but I think red and gold would be beautiful for a warm winter wedding.

hot beverage bar!

centerpeices were lanterns with pinecones and then the rose petals down the table with tea lights and smaller pinecones

favours were maple syrup

We had a Christmas wedding last year and did red, gold and burlap with lots of candles.  Our reception was at a lodge, so it had a very warm feeling.

If I were doing a winter theme, for me it would be all soft white and natural wood (light and dark browns) colors.  I’d have pine cones galore, burlap, yarn, wool, birch and maybe – maybe –  some pops of one warm color, like emerald green or rich deep berry (not both, to avoid a christmasy look).  I’d wear a cozy sweater as a cover up, have a roaring fire, and tons of candles or twinkle lit branches.

Jealous!
