A snowy winter wedding calls for some icy cool hues that match. Look no further than the shades of the sparkling snow and indigo sky right outside your venue window! A deep, regal indigo and sleek silver have the all the richness a winter wedding color palette calls for, but this chic combo has a stroke-of-midnight twist. With an easy elegance and shades that allude to the most romantic nighttime winter sky, this glam palette kicks the glitz up a notch for a winter wedding with a blizzard's worth of glam romance.
First thing's first: Capture the glamour these winter night colors bring with crisp invites like this stunner from the Oscar de la Renta collection for Paperless Post. The rich dark blue hue, contrasted with the cool white will let your guests know they're in for a sophisticated soirée.
Your girls deserve a frock just as dreamy as the night sky. A deep, midnight hued gown, coupled with a healthy dose of sexy sparkle, brings your indigo and silver color scheme to life. Have them brush an ultra-modern dark blue polish on their nails, like OPI's Eurso Euro to complete the glitzy, formal look.
A smoky, silver eye is both trendy and sexy — and brings your palette to your bridal beauty look! Stash your compact for late night touchups in a structured silver clutch, like this metallic beauty from Edie Parker.
As for breathing these lush, snowy shades into your event space, long indigo tapers on your tabletops exude all the timelessness and formality you crave. Use pewter candleholders for a dash of winter whimsy. And a classic white tiered cake makes for a clean canvas, turned stunning with a blue hued floral motif and sleek silver details.
Finally, send your guests off into the same winter night that inspired your whole soirée with artisanal soap, luxuriously packaged in an indigo and silver tin.
