This stunning color inspiration is making its way into weddings this fall and winter season and we could not be happier. We have all the inspiration you’ll need to fall deeply in love with these wedding colors!

Ivory adds a softer touch to this color palette and gives this bridesmaid attire a sweet look. Go bold with deep blue wedding fashion or opt for slate gray attire for a more neutral tone. There is something so magical about these colors together!

Creating a winter wonderland with these colors is easy. Winter white with touches of blue and gray create a clean and simple look. Incorporate pale greens, light purples or yellows for a soft pop of color. Create this chic bouquet of thistles with shades of blue, gray and purple – with DIY instructions from Flower Chic.

Midnight blue wedding decorations can be a challenge to find and match. Use shades of blue with the slate gray color for your ceremony or reception décor with a splash of deep blue here and there. Look to Etsy for unique deep blue details – like this guestbook made with vibrant blue flowers.
