Tips for the Perfect Winter Wedding Dress

We love a Winter Wedding Dress and Winter Weddings! The décor options are completely unique, the food is hearty and comforting, everything seems warmer and cozier. We have shared a couple of our Winter Wedding ideas with you, including How to Keep Your Guests Warm, Winter Decor Ideas, and Winter Wedding Make-up Tips.

Of course, you should also choose your wedding dress according to the season – the last thing you want is to shiver all night because your dress isn’t keeping you warm enough! Here are some tips on how to choose the perfect Winter Wedding Dress.

1. Add Drama

A splash of opulent colour will do wonders for your wedding look – bringing warmth to the colour palette, however not all brides want to add colour to their gowns. To add a similar element of drama, why not make use of lace over exposed skin to bring that WOW factor? Think a low-cut back, covered in gorgeous lace. This will supply much-needed coverage from the cold breeze, while still keeping the look feminine and dramatic. Winter Wedding Dress Winter Wedding Dress

2. Accessorise for Winter

If you don’t want to cover yourself completely just to stay warm, you should consider the use of accessories to layer over your wedding dress to keep out the chill. A Fur Stole in a deep, rich colour will keep you warm without bulking your look. For the edgy bride, a tailored biker jacket looks so cool, and for the whimsical bride, why not have a cape made to keep the chills at bay? Try a Sequin Jacket to add a touch of glam and sparkle, plus the added benefit of keeping you warm. You could also invest in a pair of dainty gloves to keep your fingers warm while you’re outside taking your photos. Winter Wedding Dress Winter Wedding Dress Winter Wedding Dress

3. Fabric

Your choice of fabric is very important if you’re getting married in the winter. If your ceremony and reception will all be held inside, you could make use of light silk with lace. But if you’re bound to have some outside time – even under a marquee tent with heaters, you should consider heavier silk, or woven fabric to keep the wind out. Winter Wedding Dress

4. Sultry Sleeves

We love a sleeved wedding dress! It’s so dramatic, elegant, and alluring, plus it has the added benefit of keeping you warm. You could ask your dressmaker to make your dress in two layers. The bottom layer covering up to your bust, and then the top layer of lace completing the look with sleeves. Winter Wedding Dress Winter Wedding Dress

Armed with these tips, you will definitely be able to create the perfect warm Winter Wedding Dress that still looks elegant and sophisticated, but does the job of keeping you warm!
