Things are getting snowy up here in Colorado, and many of our brides are busy planning for a cozy winter wedding. And what’s cozier than the warm, rosy glow of copper? This color palette is so on trend for winter, as brides are turning to something different from the dark jewel tones that are so common this time of year. (No shade to jewel tones, we love a dark, moody aesthetic too). But when you combine the bright freshness of new fallen snow with shiny copper accents, the result is simply magical. Get inspired to start planning your own winter wedding below!
Warm and Bright Winter Wedding Inspiration
If there was ever a day to wear a tiara, your wedding is it! Place a delicate copper crown atop your head for pure winter wedding perfection.
Accent your groom’s ensemble with a copper bow tie, pocket square and boutonniere for look that is oh-so debonair.
All that glitters is your bridal party! And your girls will definitely want to wear these gorgeous, sparkly gowns again. We love the mixture of fabrics and texture. Just like hammered copper, each piece is unique!
Less is more with these elegant letterpress invitations. Soft grey ink and cream colored paper are accented with a bright pop of copper in the envelope liner.
Neutral florals and dried plants give unique texture to your winter wedding bouquet. Tie them off with a copper ribbon if you’re missing that metallic sheen.
Fake a copper-y glow and stage your ceremony in front of a candle lit brick wall. The more fairy lights the better. And don’t forget to keep things safe with copper and glass candle chimneys. Amp up the romance and line the aisle with creamy rose petals to complete the look.
A stained glass box soldered with copper wire is sure to stand out against a snowy white backdrop. Plus you can re-purpose it after the wedding as a cozy home for an air plant or succulent!
The Table Decor
Dress your table with vintage glassware, eucalyptus and copper place settings. Add a faux fur table runner to give a unique texture and sense of winter wedding coziness.
Copper cocktail mugs are the obvious drinking vessel of choice for this wedding theme. Fill them with a Moscow Mule or spiked hot cocoa and they’re sure to be a hit.
Hand lettered signs and copper plates will make your appetizers and entrees shine.
We are loving the trend of simple, color block cakes. And edible copper leaf steals the show when set atop neutral tiers of decadent fondant.
Let your guests take their copper mugs home at the end of the night! Or if you’re not serving drinks in them during the reception, fill them full with cocoa mix so they can make their own sweet treat later.
