When my husband and I got married, it was in the middle of summer at a courthouse in Florida. I don’t regret the way we got married BUT if I had been able to plan my dream wedding, it would have occurred in Fall or Winter at an outdoor location.
I know that a lot of women want to be June brides or they want to get married at a beach or lake. No thank you. Give me the great outdoors with falling autumn leaves or wisps of winter in the pine trees.
I may not be planning a wedding but that doesn’t mean I can’t help you with yours. Right? I’ll expect an invite in the mail. 😉
While doing research for a totally different post, I came across several beautiful landscape photos. What struck me initially was the overall beauty but what really got me was the color combinations that made these photos stand out. It’s very hard to explain so I’ll let the photos do the talking for me.
Winter Wedding Colors: Palettes Inspired By Nature
Beautiful Bough Palette
I’ve always loved green and gray but when you put the colors next to each other, with the soft blues and grays, wow.
Birds of a Feather Palette
Turquoise and coral mixed in with navy and muted green makes for an eye-catching color combo. I mean, is that bird beautiful or what?!
Cuddle Weather Palette
The deep brick-red color in this photo immediately grabs your eye but when you look closer, you’ll find steel grays and blues with a few pastels thrown in.
I Think We’re Alone Now Palette
I can’t say enough about the colors in this photo. The shades of purple with the contrasting gray are jaw-dropping.
Winter Wonder Palette
If you like dark neutral colors, this wintry wonderland photo delivers. The taupe and muted yellow keep things from appearing too dark. This photo also makes me want to grab a cup of cocoa. 😉
About These Photos:
There are so many beautiful photos to scroll through and I’ve caught myself spending an hour or three just browsing (especially these barn photos).
Below each color is what’s known as the HEX code. The hex code is what identifies one color from another. This code allows you to reproduce that color on your computer or in design software like Photoshop, PicMonkey, etc.,
The HEX code allows you to use that specific color in wedding invitations, RSVP cards, table numbers, etc.,
If you like one of the color palettes that we’ve shared, take a screenshot with your phone and then save the palette to your Pinterest board for future reference. There’s nothing worse than coming across a color you love only to discover that you don’t know what it is or where you last saw it.
If you’re looking for beautiful wedding fonts (that are free), don’t miss this post. It includes a list of both hand-lettered and calligraphy styles.
Now tell me, which color palette is your fave?
