If you are getting married in winter, it’s important to make sure your wedding attire is appropriate for the cooler weather. Of course, most wedding dresses are tailored for a summer wedding but we’ve compiled some beautiful winter wedding fashion ideas to keep you, the bride, warm. It’s all about comfort with style because you don’t want to remember how you nearly froze to death on your wedding day.
Kate Middleton knew a thing or two about winter wedding fashion. The Duchess wore an angora cardigan on the night of her wedding reception. If you are looking for a similar style, the cosy style knits are very much on trend this season. Cropped cardigans are the perfect style to balance a flared skirt.
A full length coat like this one from Etsy will not only keep you warm, but make a stylish statement. This style of coat will work with a slinky, more fitted wedding gown.
The lace bolero is a sweet way to keep your shoulders and upper arms warm on a cold day. The cropped style won’t take attention away from your stunning gown if you need a blended look.
The fur cape is a sophisticated style that will suit most wedding gowns. Fur is usually warm so this vintage-style option would work well at an outdoor wedding.
A fur shawl just covers the shoulders and can be worn draped around the upper arms. It’s certainly a luxe look perfect for your wedding attire.
A knitted capelet can be worn over a strapless or sleeveless gown covering the chest, shoulders and upper arms. They are surprisingly warm for the little that they cover because of the thickness of the knit.
Why not wear a cape in the same shade as the groom’s suit? It’s a romantic look and is best suited to be worn after the ceremony.
The knit poncho is another winter trend that can be worn over a wedding dress. Grey and neutral coloured ponchos work well for a winter wedding. You could also wear one that is similar in colour to your bridesmaid’s dress.
If the thought of wearing something over your wedding dress doesn’t appeal to you, consider wearing a wedding gown with long sleeves. This dress shows that sleeves don’t compromise on style.
