Getting married close to Christmas can make for a memorable wedding. It’s the time of year that family gathers together. Lights are strung up everywhere. And weddings in winter are typically less expensive than spring weddings. If you’d like to have your wedding at this time of year, but don’t want to get sucked into a red and green theme, here are some tips.
Play up the magic of the season with metallic, jewel tones and a little bit of sparkle. A metallic color palette can be used in a few different ways. All the bridesmaids can wear shimmering gold floor length dresses for a sophisticated look or go with shorter sparkly silver dresses for a more playful style. For these options keep the accessories simple.
For an idea, slightly out of the box, try a two piece outfit on your gals. Bronze and cream can be a stunning look. The shimmer of the metallic is balanced out by the calming cream color. Keep the silhouette simple. You don’t want there to be too much going on. A straight skirt that ends above the knee paired with a lacy cream blouse could look elegant. Cream or bronze pumps would work well with this look.
Another idea is to keep the color palette neutral with black or cream dresses and accessorize with metallic, sparkly or jewel toned items. Use metallic belts and silver pumps or try a pop of color for the heels and matching clutches. If you’d like, you can match your gals with the same color heels, like a blue t-strap shoe.
