Although winter weddings have a magical quality about them, the bride-to-be who chooses to say her I do's during the more frigid months has one thing in particular she has to think about: how to stay warm. Even if it's not snowing and the bulk of the wedding takes place inside, there will be times when the winter bride has to make her way outside (winter photo ops, anyone?).
If you're thinking about a winter wedding, don't let the thought of being cold steer you away. There are plenty of ways to keep warm that are as functional as they are fashionable.
1. Wear Long Sleeves
Long sleeves are so on-trend that even spring and summer brides are digging them. But trendy or not, the long sleeve wedding dress will keep you cozy as you walk down the aisle or take photos with the family under the oak tree. Plus, sleeved dresses are just so pretty, like the Rebecca dress from our Modest Wedding Dress collection.
2. Wrap it up in Faux Fur
Aside from keeping you warm, a white faux fur shrug will look oh-so romantic wrapped around your wedding dress.
3. Pick a Heavy Fabric
The heavier your wedding dress fabric is, the warmer you'll be. Even if you want to wear a sleeveless dress, you can choose one that's made of thicker fabrics like taffeta, brocade, satin, velvet, or layers of tulle.
4. Cover Up in a Coat
For any outside moments, put on a stylish coat that fits your wedding vibe. Choose from leather jackets, pea coats and plaid, denim jackets, trench coats with faux fur lining, or go the distance with a vintage, long cape.
If a coat or cardigan is too bulky, keep it on the light (but toasty) side with winter accessories like mittens, hats, and scarves. Wear them down the aisle for a unique bridal style or don them when it's time to head outside.
