Winter Wedding Color Ideas

From bold reds and classic shades of ivory to pale pinks and greens, we give you endless possibilities and color inspiration for your winter wedding, including centerpiece ideas, bridal bouquets, invitations, and more.

White & Green

Neutral colors for your winter wedding bouquet create a simple, classic look. Here, we paired white roses and calla lilies -- great winter wedding bouquet choices -- with touches of green. Give your bouquet texture with a dramatic monochromatic look by mixing and matching different varieties of white flowers.

Pink & Yellow

Let winter's best-known flower inspire your winter wedding colors. Marble Star poinsettias bloom in pink and yellow and are a lush choice to accent your reception. Display them in vases, pitchers, or shallow dishes as table centerpieces. The best part about these festive winter flowers is that they're inexpensive, so you can use them to decorate in bulk.

Reds, Purples & Dark Pink

Explore the spectrum of reds for your winter wedding by decorating in shades of the hue ranging from bright pink to purple. In a bouquet, the colors pop against a simple white wedding gown. Here, we used chocolate cosmos, calla lilies, gloriosa lilies, dahlias, orchids, seeded eucalyptus, and ferns for this informally arranged bouquet.

Red, Plum & White

Bright red and deep plum create a color combo to use in a winter wedding, especially when paired with white or silver. Here, amaryllis -- displayed with plum and white fruit covered in sparkling sugar and placed on a footed glass dish -- makes a colorful and unique centerpiece for a winter wedding.

Red & Green

For a December wedding, red and green are a classic color combination. To get the look, set these rich red pillar candles inside rings of greenery and red berries to form a festive reception table centerpiece.

Pink & White

Use sweet, feminine hues, such as pink and white, instead of festive colors for a pretty winter wedding bouquet. Here, we paired classic pink roses and white stephanotis to create a stunning yet simple flower arrangement.

Bold Pink & Red

Red and pink are classic romantic colors that will make any winter wedding a bold affair. Use the colors in a cascading spiral of roses down your wedding cake for a dramatic touch of color.

Ivory & Deep Brown

Ivory is an elegant winter wedding color that is always in fashion. Use it as the single color in your wedding cake, with white chocolate fondant lilies and ribbon as decoration. Servingware in deep brown sets off the ivory beautifully.

Light Green, Black & White

Keep your groom involved with a masculine color scheme. Here, classic white and black gets a boost from various shades of green in this reception table centerpiece. Use these colors in a simple and elegant arrangement, such as our black square vases filled with light green hydrangea and surrounded by white votive candles. Squares of fabric featuring the colors add to the display.

Light Pink & White

Light pink and white play up the romantic aspect on this winter wedding cake. Here, we play up the tiered white cake with a simple pink ribbon wrapped around the bottom edge of each layer.

Shades of Green

Play with different shades of green for a seasonal monochromatic look. Festive greenery paired with green apples and hint-of-green berry sprigs makes a natural -- and scented -- winter wedding centerpiece. Bonus: Flower-free decorations keep you on budget.

Pale Green, Cream & Brown

Pastels aren't just for spring -- announce your winter wedding with shades of pale green and cream with dark brown accents. Here, sophisticated cream invites are wrapped with a pale green bow and placed in a small brown box.
