Winter Wedding Gowns

If you’re looking for ideas for your winter wedding gowns, then you’ve definitely come to the right place. Whether you’re looking for bridal gowns, or bridesmaid dresses, there’s plenty of things you can do to ease the process, and that’s what we’re here to help happen.

It might seem like there are thousands of things to consider, and you might feel quite intimidated by the prospect of starting from scratch; that being said, if you break it down into some simple stages, you’ll find the process much simpler to handle.

Let’s take a look at just a few of things you should consider when deciding on your winter wedding dresses: _________________________________________________________________


1. Material

While the traditional velvet winter wedding dresses are naturally very popular, there are plenty of other options that you could go for. For example, duchess satin is an excellent choice, especially if you’re going with sheer white as your primary color. Other materials to consider include organza or tulle, which you can layer with other fabrics to make a truly stunning dress. Since it’s winter, using faux-furs or heavier fabrics is a popular choice also.

2. Style

Clearly it’s your own wedding, so no one should tell you exactly what style of dress to wear. That being said, winter wedding gowns are slightly different to standard gowns (the good ones that is) and so you should definitely consider a style that you may not have previously thought about. For example, sleeves work well with winter dresses, and they can be styled in numerous ways. They are also practical in keeping the cold out.

3. External factors

Things like the weather and the amount of walking you are going to be doing are small but vital things to consider. For example, on a winter day you don’t want to be walking through muddy patches of grass with a long train, especially if you’re having an outdoor wedding. Choose a dress that’s going to be practical, as well as stylish.

4. Color

If you’re going for a winter wonderland wedding, then obviously it’s going to be all about white. However, for a Christmas themed wedding then you’re going to want darker colors, such as browns or reds. Purple is a particularly popular choice in fashion circles, but in general try to avoid anything too bright or garish.

5. Accessories

Most winter wedding gowns aren’t enough on their own, so it’s worth looking at ways you can accessorize. Try a shawl or a cape which you can wrap around your arms – these are classy and will also help keep the cold out.

6. Decoration

Think of necklaces or other sparkling decorations that can add a little bit of “pop” to your dress. These will look elegant and round off the rest of your outfit nicely.

Hopefully those tips have given you some good ideas for your winter wedding gowns. As you can see, there are a number of options, but if you break it down into stages, you should be fine. Your wedding dress is one of the most important things you will ever wear, so be patient and spend time getting it right.
