There are so many things to consider when buying a wedding gown. There are all the usual elements - from styles to suit your figure and dresses to complement your wedding theme - but you’ll want to consider the season you’re getting married in too. Whether you opt for something a little warmer to wear for your winter wedding or you’d rather embrace seasonal glitz and glamour – there’s no shortage of stylish winter wedding gowns.
When it comes to winter-ready wedding gowns, there are plenty of elegant designs to choose from. One of our favourites is this Pronovias gown, which combines classic bridal style with modern charm. The slash-neck and sleeves offer that little extra coverage while the pretty bow detail and lace overlay are in keeping with modern trends.
