A Green, Red, & Gold Winter Wedding
I know what you’re thinking: red and green for a Christmas-inspired winter wedding? How original. But deepen those shades and throw some gold in there, and now you’ve got a fresh color palette. The combination of cranberry red, emerald green, and metallic gold looks so timeless and luxurious. It reminds me of the holiday season – which is why it’s perfect for a late winter wedding.
First, decide on your main color. Are you drawn to the hunter green that reminds you of pine needles and forests, or to the crimson red of roses and berries? Your main color should be the focal point of your decor and attire: red or green bridesmaid dresses, groomsman’s ties, tablecloths, chair covers, and flowers. Bundles of pine with red roses or berries make gorgeous centerpieces – or even small, decorated Christmas trees if you really want to stick with the Christmas theme.
Now for the accent colors. If you’ve gone with green as your main color, opt for red details, such as your napkins, place mats or plate chargers, bouquets and boutonnieres. Scatter red rose petals along the aisle and tabletops. I prefer gold for an accent color because it’s so shiny. Gold napkin rings, candlesticks, silverware, wedding favors, or even some gold glitter in your centerpieces are subtle details, but will add that pop of sparkle.
I love the idea of incorporating plaid or flannel into a green, red and gold wedding. Don’t forget to pick the perfect venue! A barn, country club, or ski lodge complete with a stone fireplace will provide a cozy winter ambiance.
