Dreaming of a white wedding? Well, maybe not quite white but if you’re going with a pale color palette (whites, creams, beiges) then why not do it right… that is, in the winter! Let the mood step in and pray for a little snow to add to the beauty of the pale winter palette but even without the luck of mother nature and an outside snowy wedding day photo op, the pale wedding palette can really be lovely for a wintery wedding.
Your guests won’t be expecting it which makes it even more fun, but it’s also refreshing to see the bridesmaids in, say, cream or off-white dresses for a winter wedding (third photo) – you can always choose a shrug as your bridesmaids gift to make sure they don’t… freeze? Fur is always a must for the bride (eighth photo), but if you’re not into this (overused) style… (though still one of my favorites), try a classy jacket like the one in the eleventh photo. This is a bit different than what we’re used to seeing on the winter wedding front, but still as lovely. Moving onto the groom’s fashion, and sticking with the pale theme, I love the casual look of the groom in the third photo. Pairing khaki’s and a beige sweater is perfect for this palette and a laid back winter wedding. And finally the fashion touches… shoes, shoes, shoes! There are plenty of nude heels to pick from, and some of the most fabulous styles at that… but I actually like the simple picks we found today (sixth and ninth photos) for this palette.
And now onto the rest… on the paper front keep everything from the invites (seventh photo), to the menus, place cards and programs in the same pale palette. For the flowers, you can keep these white but add very small touches of color like the bouquet in our tenth photo. And on the food front.. keep the dessert and signature drinks along the same palette lines (this means no red sangria or cranberry martini’s)… stick with things like buttered rum (add extra cream to get it to be a pretty pale color), or an eggnog drink, and finally for the dessert… I’m slightly biased, but yes, I loveeee macarons (fourth photo). They never disappoint, and have become my go-to because in any palette, and nearly any theme these come in handy!
