Winter Wedding Inspiration - Burgundy & Navy

Rea Shaw winter wedding

There's something magical about getting married in the winter months. The earthy, rich colour palette sets a sophisticated and glamourous mood. Two colours that work well together in this season are navy blue and burgundy. Navy is a classic, timeless colour and burgundy oozes warmth, which together can create an enchanting atmosphere for your wedding day. Lets have a closer look on how you can incorporate them together.
This time of year can bring sunny days but cold nights. So depending on what time in the day your getting married, you may want to opt for a shrug over your dress for you and the bridesmaids, which still looks feminine but you will feel warmer for having photos taken outside.
Fabrics such as velvet are a wonderful choice as they are a warmer fabric to wear and will add a luxury feel.
If having several bridesmaids, why not mix and match with your two colours to create a more interesting vision.
The groom can be bold with a burgundy suit with black tie which will fit in perfectly with the holiday party season.
Or pair the contrasting colours with a navy suit with flashes of burgundy with the tie, waistcoat and hanker chief. If you are deep in the months maybe a tweed suit maybe appropriate.
Think chrysanthemum's, roses and red gerbera's for your flowers with complimenting foliage such as eucalyptus, ferns, ivy and berries. Ideal for the brides bouquet and buttonholes.
Floral crowns will look amazing to add some colour to your hair. And floral hoops for the bridal party to carry will fit in with the theme as an alternative.
The Cake
If its all about the flowers, go for a modern nude sponge cake that is very on trend.
The two colours for this palette work well together to create a beautiful wedding cake.
A perfect time of year to serve mulled wine to your guests and maybe something a little different such as a Pomegranate Martini.
Making jam and chutneys this time of year would make the perfect little favour to give your guests.
You can really get fancy with your decorations for your venue. If you like florals, create statement pieces such as floral hanging hoops above the tables, round picture frames or use drapes to make an alter.
Designs with floral and wreaths will add to the beautiful decor. Choosing foil such as Burgundy will show menus's and place cards off as they glimmer in the candle light on your tables.
I hope this has inspired your winter wedding.
