Garnet Glamour – Glittering Winter Wedding Inspiration in Garnet & Gold
Continuing the Garnet theme here on Chic Vintage Brides, in celebration of January (and garnet being January’s birthstone), today’s inspiration board is a glamorous and darkly romantic take on the shade. Full of deep, rich colours, opulence and fabulous florals, it exudes an intimate warmth and would be perfect for a Winter wedding…..

As a Winter bride myself, it is my favourite season for a wedding – dropping temperatures and snowy backdrops gives us ladies the perfect excuse for throwing on a fur (faux of course!) jacket or stole, and shorter days mean longer nights which is ideal for a softly lit, champagne charged party! And for just such a celebration rich jewel tones and metallics are a match made in heaven. Add to that hints of pretty pink and you have a palette of modern sophistication, with a nod to times gone by .
Best of all, this is a colour theme that would work in almost any venue, it would wow your guests in a historical country estate house, it would look elegant in a hotel, and it would layer luxury and warmth to a rustic barn! Whatever your chosen venue, I love the idea of sipping champagne in front of a roaring fire, before dancing the night away to a live band under sparkling chandeliers with the scent of fresh flowers filling the air.
If you have set your heart on a Winter wedding but are unconvinced by this colour palette you will find lots more wedding colours and inspiration boards in CVB’s archives!
