What are your colors? Flowers? Decor? We’re getting married in Disney but we still want a touch of winter. We are thinking of silver and candles for the decor but I really want red, orange and yellow for the flowers which aren’t really winter colors. Please share what you’re doing and/or any advice.

I think silver is a great winter wedding color. Also, think about warmer colors like warm reds, deep blues, warm greens, browns, and of course white, gold, copper would all work really nicely.

Here are some pics of branches (very winter inspired) and the second has yellow flowers too.
I think having a winter theme/ feel just means having a warm feeling, so going with a lot of candles and dimmer lighting will help give the feel of winter.

Our colors are Green and gold…I didn’t want to go with the typical silvery winter look, but instead we went for something warm and homey. (:

I think red can definitely be a winter color. You might still be able to use the red/orange/yellow color scheme if you think of it as a nice cozy fire and add some natural/rustic elements. I like the silver and metallic colors too.

My colors are eggplant and navy blue with hints of antique gold. We’re going to be using gold candles as centerpieces.

I’m kind of in love with navy blue weddings with lots of red roses and white and silver accents everywhere, but that’s just me 🙂

I love cranberry or any shade of dep red for winter weddings. The idea of pulling inspiration from a fire sounds fun. I would also consider subbing gold for silver, especially because you will be in a warmer climate and silver is kind of icy.

Our colors are blue, grey/silver, and cream. I wanted a romantic winter feel.

Our inspiration is a peacock feather… BM’s in deep teal dresses, with lots of blues and greens & bronze, gold, and amber throughout the decor. Originally I was leaning more towards teal/olive and at one point I flirted with Teal, Navy, Purple, and other jewel tones. But I really love the warmth that the amber/gold/bronze evoke. This idea actually came from our florist who mentioned doing deep orange flowers.
To the OP – I don’t think that anything is off-limits for winter. It really depends on the vibe you’re going for and the look of the venue. As others have said – red/yellow/orange can totally be winter – and romantic too. Hot & spicy like your romance! 🙂
