If you love weddings as much as I do, then you know that picking your color theme can set the whole mood of the perfect wedding.

It starts you on the path to finding the perfect dress, the ideal cake and just the right magical touches for your special day. The options are pretty much limitless, but here are some of the top 10 choices for winter wedding colors.

10. Forest Green

Forest Green

This dark and dreamy shade of green transitions nicely from fall into winter and is popular year after year. In fact, dark, forest green bridesmaid dresses are available every winter.

9. Deep Plum

Deep Plum

Whether you like the word purple, plum or eggplant, this darker shade is perfect for the season. You can pair it with a lighter lavender or team it up with a crisp white.

8. Chocolate Brown and Lush Red

Chocolate Brown and Lush Red

There is something about pairing a deep, dark chocolate brown with a luscious red. It just screams rich and decadent, which is perfect for winter wedding colors.

7. Vibrant Red and Teal

Vibrant Red and Teal

This unconventional color combination may seem a little bold for some, but think of it more as a way to liven up the winter doldrums. Announce to your guests from the moment they receive your “Save the Date” card that your wedding is some serious fun.

6. Classic Black and White

Classic Black and White

Black and white was very popular for weddings in the 1980’s and has since become a classic color combo. You can even suggest in your invites that guests stick to that palette in their attire as well. Who doesn’t love to wear a little, black cocktail dress?

5. Metallics with Neutrals

Metallics with Neutrals

Copper and gold paired with pale beiges, browns and taupes create a soft color palette that just glows. In fact, metallic colors will glow and sparkle nicely at a candlelit ceremony and reception.

4. Pale Pink with Taupe

Pale Pink with Taupe

“My colors are blush and bashful. I have chosen two shades of pink, one is much deeper than the other!” (Julia Roberts, Steel Magnolias) That has to be one of my favorite movie lines of all time. It reminds me a little bit of this color combo, but it really is very soft and feminine.

3. True Red with Traditional White

True Red with Traditional White

For Valentine’s Day, nothing says “I Do” like a white wedding dress with a red sash. It’s another classic. The favors and other wedding details all fall into place so easily, too.

2. Dark Teal and Chocolate Brown

Dark Teal and Chocolate Brown

Another color combo that works well both in fall and winter is this great pairing inspired by the fabulous Flemish still lifes of the 17th and 18th centuries. You can even sneak in an eye-popping tangerine here and there to capture the viewers attention like they did.

1. Ice Blue and Silver

Ice Blue and Silver

This color combo is the epitome of winter wedding colors. You can really go all out and create a winter wonderland full of snow and sparkles and, as an added bonus, it’s the perfect excuse to wear a (faux) mink cape. Yea!
