What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

Although spring and summer tend to pack in the most weddings, some brides love the idea of getting married during the chilly, snowy winter season. But it’s cold outside, and you’re probably wondering what you should wear to look your best, stay on trend, and still manage to keep warm. The good news – luxurious fabrics, longer lengths, sleeves, and layers are all in your favor. We’ve put together a selection of chic looks that make perfect choices for a winter wedding, and you’re sure to find something that fits your unique sense of style.

Basic Black with a Sleek, Modern Twist

Basic black always looks elegant at a winter wedding, and you’ll stay warmer if you go with a black dress in a longer length. Give it a modern twist by choosing a dress with sexy cut-outs and an asymmetric cut to really stand out. Keep it modern and sleek by going with silver heels and a black and silver clutch with geometric details to add just a touch of shine to your look. 

The Understated Lady in Red

Attending a holiday wedding? Red is the perfect color. Choose an elegant fabric for your little red dress, keeping it sophisticated instead of over the top. A winter white clutch, elegant drop earrings, and a pair of winter white stilettos will be the perfect accessories to complete your outfit.  

Shimmering Metallic to Dance All Night 

Metallics have been trendy all year long, seen on the runways and on celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Nicole Scherzinger, and they continue to be hot for winter 2018. A shimmering metallic dress is a festive choice for any winter wedding. Choose a dress with a relaxed fit and a long, flowing skirt so you’re free to dance the night away. Basic black accessories, like a small black clutch with a gold chain and a pair of black booties, keep the look formal and elegant. 

Romantic Winter Florals 

Florals aren’t only for spring and summer weddings – they’re a perfect choice for winter nuptials, too. Fall and winter florals were hot on the runways, with big names like Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, and Michael Kors showing off stunning floral prints for the fall/winter 2018 season. To keep it appropriate for winter, choose florals on a black backdrop. Carry the floral theme on into your accessories, choosing jewelry with floral touches. Ivory stilettoes make the perfect footwear choice no matter the colors in your floral pattern.

Rich Velvet in Jewel Tones 

According to Who What Wear, rich fabrics like velvet are a perfect and warmer choice for a winter wedding. A velvet dress in jewel tones like garnet, emerald, sapphire, and amethyst all provide a celebratory look that’s perfect for celebrating a loved one’s big day. Complete the look by choosing strappy heels in the same color as your dress.  

A Chic, Unexpected Jumpsuit 

An unexpected jumpsuit is a perfect way to stay comfortable, warm, and chic according to the wedding experts at The Knot. A shimmery jumpsuit, metallic jumpsuit, and jumpsuits in basic black all make perfect options for a jumpsuit. Select sophisticated accessories, such as a structured clutch and lace booties, to amplify your wedding look.
