Staying warm and cozy can be a difficult task though in the middle of an outdoor winter wedding. There is no reason to let falling temperatures ruin your perfect day. We’ve gathered easy tips to help you decide what to wear to a winter wedding to keep you warm while still rocking your style.
Wedding Gown Cover-ups
Wedding gown cover-ups are the most popular and easiest way to keep warm. Pick a shawl or wrap that flows well with your gown. Faux fur shawls and wraps are very popular right now. The cover-up should accentuate your wedding gown, making it look more like the perfect accessory to your dress instead of the stealth warm heater that it really is.
Adding a cardigan sweater with a bright color like red looks great for a winter wedding. Pair the bride bouquet colors with your cardigan color and you are good to go.
If you’re seeking warmth and a vintage look, accentuate your gown with a velvet burnout in a dark green color or neutral colors. The velvet burnout secretly warms your shoulders and arms too.
Metallic isn’t just a popular color for your wedding reception centerpieces. Make your gown pop with a metallic sequin jacket that makes your gown the talk of the reception and keeps you warm at the same time. Problem solved.
Looking for a rustic look for a cold winter wedding in the woods? Try a vintage leather jacket to keep you cozy while accentuating the authenticity of your rustic theme.
Retro Jean Jacket
Are you a rebel without a cause? You would be surprised how cool a short jean jacked will look on a white wedding dress. This jacket will ensure warmth at all times too.
Try a Shirt
Are you a flannel girl looking to make a statement with a flair of southern charm for your winter wedding? Don’t be afraid to try a flannel denim or button-up shirt as the top part of your wedding gown ensemble.
Sweaters and Scarves
If you’re looking at an outdoor winter wedding with temperatures that’s don’t look inviting, try a knitted sweater and scarf that you can make stylish around your neck. To make this sweater and scarf ensemble even more special, it can be made by a loved one just for your special day.
Who says you need a wrap or a jacket to keep you warm? Try an actual lace shirt. A deep red or green lace top works great for a winter wedding that has a holiday theme and would be perfect to wear to a winter wedding.
Wedding capes are in right now and they make you look like a Disney princess. If you are worried about being cold and want to make a bold statement, try wearing a warm cape trimmed in fur that will keep your head and your neckline warm and cozy.
Bring on the boots. Boots are cool and stylish for outdoor winter weddings. Rain boots, snow boots, cowgirl boots. They all work well with winter wedding attire.
Coats for the Groom
Find a formal black coat to coordinate with the groom’s suit. Pair it with a brightly colored scarf to accent his winter wedding ensemble and the bride’s attire.
Winter Wedding Party Tips
Make sure bridesmaids have matching coats or shawls that coordinate with the bride’s attire. The groom’s party should consist of coordinating coats and scarves.
