Colours to wear to a Winter Wedding


You’ll be wedding-ready in no time with our guide to the best winter wedding colours! You have to pick your colours wisely as anything too bright and colourful will make you stand out from the others and might not be the right style for a winter wedding. Typically, the perfect colours for a wedding at this time of year are more toned down and darker compared to summer, using tones such as red, green, gold, black, blue, purple and berry.


Purple – a Royal colour associated with Advent which makes it a perfect colour for a Winter wedding.

Gold – is the colour of the sun and light – both very important in the dark winter. Gold was also one of the presents brought to the baby Jesus by the wise men and traditionally it’s the colour used to show the star that the wise men followed.

Blue – this colour is often associated with Mary, the mother of Jesus. In Medieval times blue dye and paint were more expensive than gold so it would only be worn by Royal families or rich people. Mary was often painted wearing blue to show that she was important.

Red – the colour of Holly berries, which are said to represent the blood of Christ when he died on the cross. Red is also the colour of bishop’s robes which were worn by St.Nicholas and then became Santa’s uniform.

Green – Evergreen plants, like Holly, Ivy and Mistletoe have been used for thousands of years to decorate and brighten up buildings during the long dark winter. They also reminded people that spring would come and that winter wouldn’t last forever. The Romans would exchange evergreen branches during January as a sign of goodluck and the ancient Egyptians used to bring palm branches into their houses during mid-winter festivals. And of course the most common used of green during the Winter is for Christmas trees.
