Subdued colours burst into our wardrobes in the last 12 months. Mustard yellow, olive green, and (our personal favourite), this vibrant burnt orange.
If this colour palette doesn’t scream “cosy fireplace” then nothing does! To get the most out of these winter colours for bridesmaid dresses, you could try doing mismatched bridesmaids.
This palette is not for the faint-hearted. With a strong base colour like this, make sure you match it with some warm wood tones and mellow ochres.

The dark red and burgundy wedding trend is still going strong this season. According to Wilkins Bridal in Christchurch, it was one of the most requested bridesmaid colour schemes in the last year.
And what’s not to love? This rich winter colour palette instantly reminds us of mulled wine, cosy blankets, and gets us all love-struck and ready to celebrate!
Match these colours with some complementary forest greens and you will have your wedding guests swooning.

After burgundy, champagne and gold have been one of the biggest wedding colour trends in the last year.
This winter colour palette can be dressed up or down for the perfect winter vibes. Either tone it down with subdued creams and browns, or go full ballroom glam with glitter and diamonds!
Obviously New Zealand isn’t known for its snow-white winters, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a touch of winter magic to your wedding with this palette.

No winter wedding inspiration would be complete without an ice cold palette.
The trick with cold tones is to match it with cosy accessories. Blue and grey blankets. Soft, rustic bouquets. Twinkly lights across the ceiling. It is all about matching super classy with extremely cosy!

What better way to celebrate winter than match it with a warm, earthy colour palette.
With these delicious tones, we are thinking evergreen trees, candles, fireplaces and soft, cosy rugs. This is definitely more of a rustic vibe!
To pull this off, match it with floaty materials, and an irresistible rustic location like a barn, marquee, or wine cellar.
Don’t let the weather scare you- These cosy colour palettes might just create the most magical wedding ever!
