2022 Top 10 Wedding Color Ideas For Winter
You don’t have to stick with red and green, a palette of white and silver, or black and gold if you’re planning a winter wedding. There are plenty of other color combinations out there that are just as beautiful that will create a winter wonderland feeling on your big day.
Here are 10 of our favorite 2022 winter wedding colors that are perfect for your seasonal celebration, whether there is snow on the ground or not.
Cloudy Silver and Sage
Sage is among the most popular wedding color ideas for winter. Its soft hue can be brought out during any season, but we love pairing it with shades of tarnished silver and gray when it comes to winter weddings.
Add sprigs of silver dollar eucalyptus or soft lamb’s ear to bouquets and floral arrangements. Silver mercury glass candle holders and tarnished silver décor, like vintage tea pots used as vases, will give this color palette an old world vibe.
Black and White
White is trending in the wedding world because of its minimalist appeal, but it’s also true that it’s simply a classic bridal color. Any combination of whites and neutrals can look striking in the winter, but we especially love winter wedding colors that combine classy black and white.
That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to host a black tie affair. You can make your ceremony and reception appear a little less formal by integrating black details in unique ways. For example, black wine glasses will be a pleasant surprise to guests, as will a bride wearing black and a groom wearing white.
Blue-Gray, Burgundy, and Terracotta
If you love burgundy winter wedding colors, but you don’t want your nuptials to look like everyone else’s, try this unique color combination.
Terracotta is a popular wedding color at the moment because it can give your wedding an earthy, natural, or boho feel, depending on how you decorate. Incorporate ceramic vases filled with dried flowers for a bohemian wedding or create rich charcuterie boards on terracotta-colored cheesecloth table runners for a more natural, deconstructed feel.

Let the mountains inspire your winter wedding color ideas! Draw out the natural colors of the mountain range where you’re getting married, but if you aren’t in the mountains, don’t fret. You can still make this color palette work, especially if you pair shades of gray with Veri Peri, which happens to be Pantone's color of the year.
Incorporate natural elements as much as possible. If you’re getting married outside, keep things simple with a wooden arch. Take photos in the snow, and allow your bridal party to wear different shades of gray. Pops of Very Peri can show up in the textiles you use to decorate ceremony chairs and reception tables.
Metallics are popular at winter weddings, but we like unique winter wedding palettes that go beyond using shades of silver. Instead, we recommend mixing and matching different shades of metallics for a dynamic look.
For example, when creating place settings, use gold charger plates, traditional silverware, and brass goblets. Floral centerpieces can be displayed in antique silver vases that are surrounded by rose gold candle holders.
Navy and Emerald
Winter wedding colors with navy blue are popular, but they can end up looking tired and boring because this hue is so overdone. Enliven this color by combining it with emerald green. Formal affairs can incorporate pops of black, while less formal affairs can incorporate ivory.
Pink Wedding Cake Decorated With Berries, Figs, and Pansies: Love My Dress, Floral Centerpiece With Pink Roses, Blueberries, and Berry-Colored Ranunculus: Chic and Stylish Weddings, Dusty Rose and Berry Color Palette: Pantone
Dusty Rose and Berry
Don’t think using pink in your wedding is best left to spring and summer nuptials. The combination of dusty rose and berry is right at home at a winter wedding.
Traditional touches, like pink roses, can look beautiful adorning your ceremony and reception spaces, but we especially love taking the term “berry” literally. Cover your cake with raspberries and strawberries, incorporate berries into charcuterie boards, and scatter tables with candied cranberries and figs.
Cream, Brown, and Clear Acrylic
Cream and brown are great 2022 wedding colors for a winter wedding, but if you want to take this color palette one step further, combine it with acrylic details.
Use clear acrylic chairs at your ceremony and reception. Top a naked wedding cake with an acrylic cake topper and create custom clear acrylic menus. Bring in natural elements through the use of wood and dried florals, like pampas grass.
White Place Setting With Silver Details and Red and Blue Flowers: Style Me Pretty, Bride in a Blue Fur Holding a Bouquet of White Poppies and Red Roses: Ruffled Blog, Red, White, and Blue Color Palette: Pantone
Red, White, and Blue
When you think of winter wedding color ideas, red, white, and blue probably don’t come to mind. That’s exactly why we want to include them on our list! When done properly, this palette looks a lot less like the Fourth of July and a lot more like a colorful winter wonderland.
Black and white poppies and red carnations make stunning flower arrangements, while blue table cloths, furs, and ribbons can make your nuptials feel more modern and less like a dollar store barbecue.
Peach and Powder Blue
Peach and powder blue are most commonly associated with spring weddings, but when you choose the right materials and details for your big day, they can look beautiful in the winter as well.
Incorporate ice sculptures into your décor, either on reception tables or at the ends of the ceremony aisle. When incorporating peach, use fabrics like tulle for a frosty feel, or heavy velvet and furs, for a cozy feel.
