5 Perfect Palettes for a Winter Wedding

Hello lovelies! You may remember I promised some weeks ago, after you all loved the Autumn wedding colour palettes I shared, that these perfect palette posts would become a more regular feature and today I thought it was about time I delivered on that promise (OK, so I confess, I rather loved the post too and just couldn’t wait any longer to share the next one!) So this week’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons features 5 of my favourite palettes for a Winter wedding, and finishes with a chance for you to have a say on which one becomes the next inspiration board! As a Winter bride myself I can tell you there is no time of year more magical for a wedding. I know you’re not convinced, but wait until you see these…..

For the most elegant look keep the red deep and mix with ebony and pearl…..

 In fact this reminds me of one of my very earliest wedding inspiration boards (from all the way back in July 2012!)…. you can see it here if you missed it.


4. Use the lush green foliage that abounds in winter, mixed with pine cones and berries they are just as lovely as any flowers – and are sure to make your centrepieces and decor far more affordable! Mixed with a hint of gold and lashings of bright royal blues (a table runner is such a clever way to add colour to your winter tables!) it makes for a stylish but fun colour palette…..
