Frosted Cranberry – Cranberry, Gold & Winter White Wedding Inspiration

Christmas Eve Eve….. wow has Christmas come around quick this year! I am finally feeling more prepared for it after a weekend of shopping and wrapping (accompanied of course by Love Actually and a glass of sherry) – how about you, are you on top of everything for Christmas? Last Christmas I went with a fabulous emerald and silver colour palette for my seasonal inspiration board, but this year I have chosen a rich, dark cranberry red with winter white and a splash of gold for warmth……

 Doesn’t it just exude opulence and glamour? Think Cranberries touched with frost, twinkling Christmas lights, open fires and dazzling gold finishing touches (decor, table settings and stationery) In fact, it is far too pretty a palette to be kept just for Christmas!

Or be bold and choose a coloured wedding dress like this elegant pocketed dress from Elie Saab’s Fall/Winter Haute Couture Collection – with its bateau neckline and full skirt, it has a 1950s feel but with a modern edge (I could see Audrey Hepburn  wearing this with her beautiful auburn hair)…..
