We’ve fallen in love with the idea of using non-traditional colors for a winter wedding. Everyone sees plenty of red and green during the holidays, right? A color scheme of deep brown and shades of blue is perfect for adding unique warmth and unforgettable sparkle to a wedding in the chilly months.
Here’s what we came up with for tablescapes that will welcome and WOW guests at a winter wedding. Each uses the same elements in slightly different ways. You can use the same centerpiece look for each table, but we suggest using all four all looks and spreading them out over your tables to create variety and visual interest.
For this spectacular centerpiece, we used a traditional evergreen wreath base, then added metallic gold branches, gold-tipped pinecones and leaves to bring in the brown tones, strands of metallic blue beads and copper ribbon for variety. In the center is a flared vase filled with various styles and shades of blue ornaments and beads. Encourage each guest to take home an ornament as a favor when the reception is over! Complete the table’s look with blue place cards, mocha napkins and mocha favor boxes at each place setting.
Use the same vase filled with ornaments and beads in the center of the table, and surround it with square votive holders filled with blue beads or sand — you can’t have enough candlelight at a winter wedding! Tie your mocha favor boxes with blue ribbon for a finishing touch.
A simple, shimmering espresso candle in the same flared vase will create a clean, but still elegant, centerpiece. Tie coordinating ribbons around the vase to tie in your colors.
Enjoy celebrating your winter wedding with your guests in a unique and colorful way!
