How to choose the perfect winter wedding gown

Winter weddings may not be standard fare, but they are unique in their own way. When you decide to get married when it is cold, you are set for adventure and excitement. Unlike a summer or spring wedding, when most wedding dresses work, you have to plan your winter look in detail to stand out as a stunning bride.

After all, there are more challenges to overcome; like staying warm in what you wear. Here we shall look at some factors that will help you feel good, without compromising on style when choosing your wedding gown.

Style with sleeves

Find a wedding dress with sleeves to stay warm. You can choose from stylish cap-sleeves to three-fourth length sleeves, butterfly sleeves or even full sleeves. While these do not have to be thick fabric, even lace or embellishments on sheer fabric can add a touch of drama to your look, making you a perfect winter princess.

Accessorize appropriately

If you have your heart set on a strapless gown, do not despair. You can pair it with a befiting shrug, stole or wrap, so you do not shiver when exposed to the cold. If you have a snow wedding planned, you will be the epitome of style in such accessories. Your outdoor photographs will be splendid, and undoubtedly frame-worthy when you flaunt your style in a stunning cashmere wrap or warm winter jacket. Pay attention to your footwear; a stunning pair of snow boots will not only keep you cozy, it will also be appropriate for the winter theme you are hosting.

Look lovely in layered skirts

Be a snow princess in luxuriously layered ball gown skirts. The cold weather will make this choice perfect, and you will benefit from the added layers that keep you cosy and snug. Don’t hesitate to choose poufy princess gowns in heavy lace or pretty embellished mermaid skirts, as this is the perfect weather to feel comfortable in these patterns.

Choose luxurious silk, satin and velvet

These fabrics drape well, but can weigh you down in warm weather. Fortunately, they work to your advantage when you wed in winter. Larissa and Duchess Satin gowns look elegant and sophisticated against the natural backdrop of white. Pair it with a fur wrap and you will be a vision in white.

Embellishments and ruffles for drama

When the natural background is white, your gown should have some special feature to make it stand out. This is what embellishments achieve. Sparkling details in crystal and metal can help you shine and shimmer through the wedding ceremony. Another superb choice for a winter wedding is a mermaid gown with ruffles in the skirt that imitate the grace and splendor of snow – it will make the perfect complement for the beauty of the landscape outside.

Be bold with color

When everything around you is white, why not choose a wedding gown in a different color? Stunning gowns in plush dark colors will help you stand out, or you can go for subdued colors like baby blue or blush. Make a statement with patterned fabric or gowns with contrasting colors in classic designs to look delicate and dainty.
