As cool fall turns to blustery winter, it's time to start considering deeper wedding color palettes. Sure, we'll always love pretty blush pink details and poppy metallic hues, but as the colder months settle in, we love a warm and inviting pairing fit for cold-weather nuptials. Whether you're trying the knot on a mountaintop or near the water, consider a hunter and celery palette for the perfect tone-on-tone combination.

While a monotone palette of green hues might seem less than thrilling, one look at this gorgeous inspiration board and you'll realize how elegant mixing a light and deep color can be. Hunter is the perfect tone for winter weddings, since its rich, regal hues will add tons of warmth to your reception space. And for fun highlights, nearly pastel celery green is the perfect choice. It's light and airy and looks but looks crisp and clean when combined with the deeper shade. Plus, the combo couldn't be a better complement to winter wedding details, like tons of evergreens, red berries, and cool-weather accessories.

Softer than black, but with the same slimming effect, your girls will love introducing this new hue into their wardrobe.

Layering the two tones into your flowers and tablescapes are as easy as can be, too. Pick greenery in an array of shades and find contrasting dinnerware for a polished finish.
