Cozy

Classic Red, Navy, Sage, Champagne

Play with these colors

Classic red is bold, beautiful, warm, and intimate. Hot red paired with deep, cool navy blue adds instant warmth and makes a stunning statement for a winter wedding. Soft sage green and champagne tone the overall palette down with their organic vibe and neutrality. Some may associate this palette as being a tad moody, but we think the vibrancy of red tied with the other cool hues adds life and offers a gorgeous eclectic feel.

As you choose your wedding stationery, intertwine your personalities into what you’d like to send out as an announcement of the upcoming day! For example, if you’re a flannel-wearing casual couple, customize a fun buffalo plaid invite to send out.

SPICE

Custom Burgundy, Ivory, Ashwood, Custom Sage

Play with these colors

Rich brownish-burgundy is deliciously spicy during the chilly winter! This overall organic palette of neutrals including burgundy, ivory, ashwood, and a eucalyptus shade can be dressed up or down for a beautiful winter event, especially rustic weddings. While made up of four hues, this combo is not overwhelming and is easy to incorporate. The very outdoorsy-inspired spicy blend is warm, romantic, and it definitely gives us the feels!

Eucalyptus, pinecones, ivory roses, and rich wooden accents are perfect décor complements with this organic palette! Custom spices make for great favors, and eucalyptus leaves make for easy and beautiful confetti for a rustic wedding.

Navy blue weddings evoke elegance and sophistication—and this classy combo is the perfect place to start.

A wedding in the winter months calls for a cake that captures the icy atmosphere but that still adds elegance and warmth. Add dashes of color to your cake(s), and decorate with touches of winter berries and greenery.

IMPERIAL

Five colors don’t often blend so well together, but this chic winter palette proves otherwise! If you go with lots of hues, keep in mind the types of materials, textures, flowers, and metallics that will help complement your wedding day palette.
