Top 10 Winter Wedding Color Ideas With Emerald Green
A deep emerald hue is a beautiful choice for a winter wedding because it’s the color of fir trees and wreaths. But that doesn’t mean your wedding has to look like a cheesy Christmas party. There are many season-appropriate colors that pair well with green that will make your wedding look less like a holiday party and more like the winter wonderland wedding of your dreams.
Here are our top ten winter wedding color ideas that include emerald green.
Bride and Groom Posing in Front of a Table Decorated in Black, White, and Green: Marry Me Tampa Bay, Black and White Place Setting With an Emerald Green Napkin: Flora and Fauna Flower Co., Black and White Color Palette: Pantone
Black and White
If you’re dreaming of a black tie affair, look no further than a black and white color palette with splashes of emerald green.
This color combo lends itself well to weddings that are surrounded by snow because it provides the perfect white backdrop. Black is a classic choice for the groom and groomsmen, with white shirts that allow emerald green ties to pop. Touches of green can be added through garlands made of greenery, napkins, and ribbons.
Navy and Black
If you prefer a color palette with a little more color, swap out white for navy. It's one of our favorite winter wedding color ideas for 2022 because it’s such a classy combination.
We love the idea of layering crushed velvet table runners in emerald green over navy tablecloths for a dark, moody look. Navy colored geodes are a surprising touch in centerpieces, while all-green floral arrangements fit right in with the winter season.
Silver and Birch
Silver and green are beautiful winter wedding colors, especially when they are paired with the tan and gray hues that are found on the bark of birch trees.
Incorporate actual birch into your décor by placing floral arrangements on birch slices or put votive candles in birch logs. Silver can be incorporated through the use of silverware and candlesticks, but gray velvet also fits right into this color palette, whether it’s draped on a ceremony arch or worn by your bridesmaids.
Peach is a classic wedding color that is usually reserved for springtime nuptials, but we think it looks just as beautiful in the winter when paired with shades of emerald and snowy white!
It’s important to get the balance of light and dark right with this color palette. Emerald green tablecloths and floral arrangements with lots of greenery ensure this color combination looks appropriate for a winter wedding.
White Wedding Cake Decorated With Green and Gold on a Rose Gold Tablecloth: Nashville Bride Guide, Bird’s Eye View of a Reception Table With Gold Accents, Silverware, and Flowers: A Fresh Event, Mixed Metallics Color Palette: Pantone
The rules used to say you could only pick one metallic shade when decorating, but those rules don’t apply anymore. Choosing a variety of metallic shades adds depth and interest to your emerald green color palette.
Order a wedding cake flecked with gold and display it on a rose gold tablecloth. Mix and match candle holders in shades of silver and bronze. This color palette is an especially good choice for DIY couples because the flexibility of decorating with a variety of metallics means you can find exactly what you’re looking for at estate sales and thrift stores!
Floral Table Runner With Greenery and Deep Red Flowers: Sweet Root Village, Bride and Groom Kissing Surrounded by Green and Burgundy Floral Arrangements: Green Wedding Shoes, Burgundy and Wine Color Palette: Pantone
Burgundy and Wine
Red and green are a classic holiday combination that can be elevated when you pair emerald with the deep shades of burgundy and wine.
Deep red roses are popular with traditional couples, while calla lilies are a favorite among couples who are looking for a gothic vibe. Serve red wine in crystal goblets and use emerald velvet napkins at each place setting.
Bookshelf and Card Catalogue Decorated With Green Plants in Terracotta Pots: Junebug Weddings, Bride Holding a Bouquet of Greenery and Terracotta-Colored Flowers: WedPlan, Brown and Terracotta Color Palette: Pantone
Brown and Terracotta
Terracotta wedding colors are popular at the moment, and we’re here for it! Paired with brown and emerald, this color palette is a great choice for earthy, boho brides and grooms who are planning a winter wedding.
Decorate with natural materials, like terracotta clay candle holders, and wooden details, like driftwood centerpieces. Dried palms and pampas grass look beautiful in flower arrangements with living leaves and flowers.
Blush and Mauve
If you like the boho look, but want to inject more color into your wedding day décor, consider combining emerald with blush and mauve. Pink bunny tails look right at home in winter floral arrangements, while eucalyptus and fir branches allow you to inject dark greenery into your decorations.
This color palette can also provide you with the perfect balance of feminine and masculine energy at your wedding, with bridesmaids wearing dresses in shades of pink and groomsmen wearing dark green.
Tall Floral Arrangement With Red and Yellow Flowers: Rachel Frisell, Bride Wearing a Mustard Skirt Standing Under a Floral Arch With the Groom: Altar'd Events, Cranberry and Mustard Color Palette: Pantone
Cranberry and Mustard
If you’re looking for an unexpected twist on classic Christmas colors, try combining shades of cranberry and mustard with emerald green.
Decorating with cranberries and evergreen boughs are a great way to decorate for the season, but pops of mustard yellow will keep things from looking too Christmassy. If you love yellow, incorporate it into your color scheme with bold choices, like table runners, bridesmaid dresses, and ribbon. Or, tone it down with pops of yellow in between plenty of greenery and red mums.
Bridesmaids in Emerald Green Wearing Sage Shawls Standing With the Bride: Rachel Graff Photography, Sage and Dust Color Palette: Pantone, Wedding Cake Painted With Greenery and Decorated With Roses: Mallory Cheung
Sage and Dust
Sage is a beautiful wedding color. When combined with emerald and dust, green becomes the star of your color palette.
This color combo offers a lot of flexibility, so you can make it completely your own. It can be romantic, with sprigs of greenery and feminine florals on the ceremony arch, or botanical, with sage-colored air plants nestled into geometric prisms. Green velvet and shawls make for a cozy winter wedding celebration, while decorating with green agates can make your nuptials look magical and luxurious.
Emerald is the perfect color for winter weddings, enabling you to choose a vibe that’s just right for you, depending on the other colors you combine it with. Whether you like the idea of holiday colors with a twist or you want a color palette that is winter-appropriate without screaming “Christmas!”, you’ll find the perfect combination of hues on this list.
