Girl, there isn't much more that we love more than deep reds. I am obsessed with Claret. This color also serves as a stunning winter color! Claret is an eye-catching color that'll make your bridal party pop! Claret looks best when paired with more neutral tones, but be wary of dusty tones as they can clash with the vibrancy of this red!

We totally understand if having a winter wedding is an intimidating thought. Winter can be unpredictable and uncomfortable if you don't play your cards right. But some of the most beautiful weddings I've ever seen have been winter weddings. Besides that, winter weddings are almost always cheaper simply because winter is considered the off-season for almost all wedding vendors. Do some research and see if a winter wedding would fit the vision you have for your dream wedding!
