Colour Crush #3 - holly berry red and icy white

It’s all about a Christmas inspired colour scheme on the blog today with this Colour Crush palette from Gabrielle at The Green Gables – lashings of festive holly berry red and icy white tones. 

Sometimes one colour is all you need. Red is a gorgeous colour to use in a Christmas wedding, not just because of its festive glow. Red is a bright, bold, cheerful, vibrant colour and in several cultures symbolises good luck and happiness.

You can choose the red to suit you, from bright orangey reds to deep purpley reds. Make red the prominent theme with solid blocks of colour in the flowers, bridesmaid dresses and stationery. Or for extra Christmas sparkle use red as an accent colour with lots of white and touches of silver and gold.

What’s your perfect palette for a Christmas wedding?
