Ask Kate: Winter Wedding Silver, White and Navy Theme

January 18, 2013

I need help planning a winter wedding with a silver, white and navy colour scheme. We are getting married in London on a budget but I am having trouble finding a venue.


A winter wedding of navy, white and silver will give a very sophisticated look, perfect for a formal city wedding. You could wear a white bridal gown (rather than ivory), with a navy coat or cape with white fur trim.  Your bridesmaids  could wear long, velvet navy gowns, with white fake fur jackets for warmth and hold bouquets of white flowers, tied with navy and silver ribbons.  Try Debenhams and BHS Bridal for lovely inexpensive off-the-peg bridalwear.

Your groom and best man could either wear navy suits or grey suits with white shirts and navy ties. Your groom may choose to wear a white or navy waistcoat to stand out from the crowd.

Decorate your reception tables with striking white New York style topiary tree centrepieces, navy floating candles, and silver snowflakes. Navy cameras and napkins will finish off the look.
