Winter Bride Must-Haves to Stay Stylishly Warm
You’ve always dreamed of a winter wedding. Saying “I do” with glistening white snow all around sounds incredibly romantic to you. The only thing you’re not looking to forward to is being cold. Because it’s hard to enjoy all the special moments with goose bumps and chattering teeth.
You don’t have to forgo style for staying warm, or freeze for the sake of fashion! In fact, there are many chic style options for the bride getting married in the off-season. From the dress to outerwear, here are gorgeous bridal looks that will have you feeling winter’s magic throughout your wedding day!
Long-Sleeve Wedding Gown
Kate Middleton and Miranda Kerr stunned us with their long-sleeve wedding gowns. A high neck is anything but frumpy. Exquisite lace sleeves and unique tailoring at the shoulder are beautiful details that personality. A modest neckline evokes a timeless beauty that is always in style, no matter what season. This simple column gown by designer Jesus Peiro encapsulates modern elegance. Showcasing a decorative overlay and slim silhouette, this Lili Hod design is delicate and romantic with a hint of sexiness. Channel your inner ice princess with this embellished tulle ball gown by Hayley Paige.
A lux stole will keep you cozy and warm on the way to the reception. Wear the accessory in a few of your photos and you’ll forever capture the memory of your winter wonderland wedding. Radiating sophisticated glamour, this faux fur stole is versatile and can be worn on and off the shoulders.
Take the chill out of winter by covering up a sweetheart bodice gown with a dazzling hand-stitched sequin sweater. Paring wonderfully with a full tulle skirt, the piece will transition your attire from ceremony to reception with ease. Added bonus – you get two bridal looks for a fraction of the cost.
Complete your ensemble with a striking bridal jacket. Black accents are trending in wedding fashion right now and this edgy fringe jacket hits all the right marks. Go for vintage glitz with a shimmering sequined smoking jacket in white gold. A luxurious fur bolero is a must-have for a bride getting married in the coldest of seasons.
It may not look like much, but a bridal capelet offers just enough coverage to make wearing a strapless gown much more bearable on a frosty day. A crystal adorned design is so dazzling you won’t even have to bother with jewelry. A silk chiffon cover up channels a delicate and feminine mood.
Live out your snow queen fantasy by adding a bridal muff to your wedding outerwear. Extremely popular during the 19th century, the item may seem a little out of place today. But put in the context of a winter wedding and the muff becomes a show-stopping accessory guaranteed to make an impression. The piece can be worn alone or embellished with a bejeweled brooch.
Don’t leave your bridesmaids out in the cold! When it comes time to give out bridal party gifts, surprise your best girlfriends with a soft, chic pashmina that complements their dresses.
Winter is just a few months away. Don’t wait until the last minute to find outerwear that keeps you cozy and looking fabulous on your wedding day!
