Winter wedding dresses

Over recent years, more and more designers have included gowns in their collections that are perfect for winter weddings so when you start looking for your dress, you’ll have more choice than ever. Obviously, the style of the gown is absolutely your choice and it should work with you and the overall feeling that you’re creating for your day. That said, there are a few design details that couldn’t be better for winter weddings as you’re about to see:

An embellished bodice is always gorgeous and that’s definitely true in winter when it reminds you of frost and ice. We love the heavier skirt here too – ideal for colder months.

A gown with sleeves is always going to be a good idea in winter and a lace design gives you a beautifully delicate look.

Embrace the trend for bridal separates and combine textures for a fabulous look. A luxurious knit above a dreamy tulle skirt couldn’t be better.

If the thought of an open backed gown appeals but you’d like something a little warmer, how about a design that combines a little exposure with a slightly more coverage? Again, we love the sleeves and the mixture of fabrics here too.

Pockets are another super details for winter wedding dress and this gown with its high collar and heavyweight fabric is a winter dream.

However, there are no rules that say you have to wear a dress! If you’d prefer an alternative winter look, a stunning jumpsuit really couldn’t be better.

Accessories for winter wedding gowns

Accessories really let you put your own personal stamp on your wedding day look. In winter, you’ve got a whole host of extra accessories to choose from!

The bridal bolero is the ideal accessory for winter weddings. Easy to wear when you’re outside, it can be quickly removed when you’re back indoors and it looks amazing in photos too.

Why not opt for a colourful cosy knit shawl instead of a bridal bolero? This are perfect for rustic or boho weddings.

If you take a look around specialist shops or search online, you might be lucky enough to find a vintage jacket for a touch of decadence.

We all know the saying ‘cold hands, warm heart’ but who wants frozen fingers on their big day? Gloves look great in photos and they’ll keep you cosy.

What could be better for a winter wedding than a touch of sparkle and these glitter pumps are perfect. If you’re worried about snow and ice, flats are a good choice!
