I have absolutely no fashion sense. I was not born with the ability to tell what looks good when designing anything.
I will be having a winter wedding, most likely December of 2013. I’m at a total loss for what colors I want.
It’s cold where I live. I want there to be lots and lots of snow on the ground. So I want the reception (indoors) to have a warm and comforting feel. I don’t want to use blue in the colour scheme because although it creates the winter wonderland feel, I don’t want the feel inside to be cold. Outside is the winter wonderland inside, I want a toasty atmosphere.
However, I do like the look of the crystals and the tree branch style centrepieces. But I want lots of candle light and have it feel very intimate and romantic. I also don’t want it to feel overly christmas-y but I am okay with the odd pointsetta, or christmas tree in the room, as long as it’s not overdone with the christmas.
I like the classy look. I was thinking of using red very subtly to add some colour with silver or gold? I love the look of red roses. But I don’t want to overdo the red, but also I don’t want it to stand out and look out of place.
Can someone direct me to some nice pictures of what I’m describing? Or tell me if I should forget about the red idea? I don’t even know what colour bridesmaid dresses I want. Was thinking black, then red, now I”m back to black again…
I just don’t know what I’m doing!
Also, I think I might have posted this in the wrong place… but I have no idea how to fix that.

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.

I wanted teh exact same feel to my wedding that you want! I think I acheived it 🙂 We had our wedding at a pioneer village. the hall had 2 fire places and our colours were cranberry and plum. Here are some inspiration pics from my 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

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.
