Wedding Colour Themes for Autumn and Winter Weddings
Now that you are engaged and you have completed the guest list, you need to start considering what colour themes will be central to your wedding.
But, before you make a decision, you must first consider your groom. Think about his colourings and consider which colours he would look good in. Then, think about your bridesmaids. Not all bridesmaids will look their best in every colour and equally it is important to consider their body shape, size and skin tone. Lastly, pay close attention to the dominant colours in your reception room as this may also have an impact on your decision.
The most popular colour choice for Autumn and Winter brides is still burgundy. This is largely due to the classy, regal and opulent feel that this colour exudes and as a result it has managed to stand the test of time. Depending on the depth of the shade, burdundy tends to suit most people. However, take care if you have a blonde bridesmaid with pale skin as she may look a little drained in a deep shade of burgundy. This colour is always best matched with deep creams and golds so when it comes to accessories, lighten the feel of the burgundy up with gold bridal jewellery, gold organza ribbon in floral arrangements, gold favour boxes, ivory crystal nets, cream and gold table scatter and gold sparklers etc. This ensures that the burgundy of the dresses stands out and is not dominated by other areas of detail.
Much as burgundy is an ever-popular choice, recent polls have hinted that chocolate tones are becoming a more common colour theme. Whether it be chocolate rose petals scattered on reception tables, chocolate satin edge ribbon, bridesmaid dresses and chocolate wedding favours. Some brides have reported though, that when some bridesmaid dresses were photographed in poor light, the dresses appeared almost black, so watch out for this.
If you are looking to have a more traditional winter wedding, then why not go flat out and make red your dominant colour? It does not need to look tacky if you are careful with the shades of red that are used. Best to stay away from cherry reds in the winter and stick with deep reds that can be teamed with rich creams. You may even choose to have some red on your dress bodice or go for a completely red gown if you are a cheeky bride. And why not? After all, if you canít do it on your wedding day, then when can you do it?
Perhaps you are looking for a safer option, in which case join forces with thousands of other brides who opt for traditional gold. No matter how you do this, you canít possibly go wrong. Gold and ivory always oozes class and sophistication and naturally suits all skin tones. There is always such a vast selection of gold stationery, wedding favours, bomboniere, wedding jewellery, shoes and handbags that will blend brilliantly with any gold wedding theme. Equally, in years to come when you look back at your wedding photo album, your pictures will not age in terms of fashion. This means your future kids will think you are really cool - and that has to be a winning factor for choosing a gold themed wedding doesnít it!?
