When thinking about winter fashion choices, people tend to think of heavy layers, lots of fake fur, velvets, and wool. However, that doesn’t have to be the case, especially when it comes to dressing wedding. Here are some helpful hints on how to keep warm while still having your dream dress.
Bring out your inner princess with brocade:
A rather heavy and luxurious looking fabric, brocade can be lovely way to keep warm during a winter wedding. Consisting of patterns stitched into the fabric itself, it creates a visually interesting aesthetic and adds a little glamour to your dress. Since most people associate brocade with the renaissance and nobility, it can help bring a little sumptuousness to your look and make you feel like a princess.
Go For High Glam In Silk Mikado:
Don’t let the name fool you, silk Mikado is another great choice for getting married in winter. While typically silk is thought of as a light airy fabric, silk Mikado is heavier and far more structured, so it creates a little bit of weight and insulation against the cold. Plus, the sheen of the dress creates a definite old Hollywood feel, and ups the glam factor to any wedding.
Think About Wraps and Shrugs:
Just because temperatures are lower, doesn’t mean you have to give up your dream of a sleeveless or backless dress. Why not consider a lovely long-sleeved shrug during the ceremony and then go bared shouldered during the reception, where you have a little more say over how warm the room will be? Wraps can also be a classy way to keep bare skin warm, while not sacrificing your sense of style.
Don’t Forget Your Bridesmaids:
Remember, your dress is going to have way more fabric than the ladies you have chosen to stand up with you. So, make sure you keep them warm and toasty, so they aren’t shivering their way through the ceremony and reception. Their dresses should be made of heavier material too, have wraps and shrugs ready, and, if it matches your aesthetic, gloves, just incase their hands get cold.
