When planning a wedding, there are some things that the happy couple should be thinking about above all else. Once you’ve already nailed down the venue, for example, and selected your gown—arguably the most important aspects of the planning process—you can move on to some of the smaller details, like deciding your wedding colors. Like any other part of the wedding process, each season comes with a new set of trends to consider, and if you’re currently in the process of picking your winter wedding colors, you’ll want to listen up.
In order to stay on top of the trends for your wedding, we asked Alyssa Longobucco, The Knot’s styling and planning editor, for her expert insight on the colors she’s been seeing brides opt for this season. Keep scrolling to see all of her thoughts on the colors below.
A slightly darker, moodier shade of green, it instantly adds a touch of luxury and sophistication to any event and, as a bonus, has so many different uses. Have your wedding party rock it as a suit or a dress (it looks amazing on any skin tone) or ask your florist to go big on the winter greenery as décor (like hanging installations of pine branches) and save yourself a bit of money on flowers in the process.
This print is so chic.
You'll never want to take this off.
Velvet is perfect for the winter.
A deep, rich burgundy is a great shade to choose if you're looking to bridge the gap between a fall and winter affair. If you want to really make an impact, opt to go tone-on-tone with various shades of rich burgundy and dark fuchsia for a totally wow-worthy event.
We love this neckline.
You'll get so many compliments on this.
Wear this for a wedding or to a formal party.
Gold, copper, and silver are gorgeous any time of year, but there's something so special and festive about using them throughout the holidays for your wedding. Instead of feeling like you have to stick to one metallic tone, why not work in all three? With an emphasis on shine and glitz, a palette of mixed metallics will feel totally fresh and on trend.
Turn heads in this.
Simple and chic.
This looks so comfortable.
For those black-tie affairs.
While pastels traditionally feel very spring, light blue is huge this year—and it can be just as beautiful in January as it is in May. To make it work, pair it with accents that make it feel a bit frosty, like lots of faux-fur throws and soft cream shades. The end result? A dreamy winter wonderland scene totally worthy of your "I dos."
This is foolproof.
Dress this up or down with ease.
This dusty hue is perfect for the season.
