The Opal Winter Wedding


After all of that talk of opal colors, texture, and sparkle from yesterday’s Fashion Week post, I thought I would give a little inspiration for all those brides out there. Who’s says you can’t add a little color to a winter wedding. I think this is a great start for a January bride who wants to stay relevant to the season but shake it up a little. Side note-I really want to figure out how to make those slate blue macaroons up there on the top. Whoever thought of edible glitter is a GENIUS. I bet if I did some digging I would find a recipe for it somewhere.

I digress, would you try opal for your winter wedding or is this color palette best kept for the springtime bride?

  1. I think opal can be beautiful if done right. If not careful, it could wander into “high school winter wonderland dance,” but I’m sure w/ your advice it would be far from that.

    • I completely agree Suzanne. You have to be very proactive when it comes to editing your ideas to keep it sophisticated. Too much of any one thing could really throw it off. If it were me, I would use cream, blush, and gold as my base main colors because they are the most neutral. Then, sprinkle your palette with touches of pale slate blue , soft wintergreen, and lavender. And by touches, I mean VERY carefully edited choices for your things like the font on menus, escort card details, tags on favors, etc. I have a tendency to get carried away so it is best to remember what Chanel once said “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” That applies to weddings too.
