I love getting glammed up for any occasion, but I just can’t stop myself when it comes to a wedding. It’s a time to celebrate love and romance, but it’s also a time to celebrate show-stopping outfits – as long as they don’t upstage the bride, of course! Although many couples choose to get married in the summer, where you can whip out the summer dresses and strappy sandals, it’s not so easy to choose an outfit for a winter wedding. You want to stay stylish but you also want to stay warm, so how do you strike the perfect balance? Keep reading for all the deets.
4 outfit ideas for a winter wedding
All Black Everything
When it comes to weddings, it’s normally a given that you don’t wear black. This color is normally reserved for funerals, and most people avoid it at all costs. However, the rules change slightly when it comes to winter weddings. The color palettes of winter and summer weddings are completely different, and this means that blush pinks and bright yellows often look out-of-place in the freezing temperatures. Because of this, you can actually get away with wearing black to a winter wedding. My go-to black outfit? The ultimate lace LBD, complete with a black blazer to give it that extra somethin’ special.
The Longer, The Better
As you look outside and see the snow on the ground, you probably couldn’t think of anything worse than wearing a dress to a wedding. After all, your legs would go numb within minutes, wouldn’t they? Well, not quite. Although it might not be the best idea to wear a miniskirt for such an event, you can still wear a dress to a winter wedding. Long dresses will be your savior because these dresses will cover everything you need them to cover, while still embracing your flirty feminine side. Because you’re acknowledging the winter with the long material, this allows you the chance to play around with more colors and patterns.
The Ultimate Jumpsuit
Choosing an outfit for a winter wedding can be difficult, and this is largely down to the weather. You just can’t predict what the weather is going to be like on the day, and you have to prepare yourself for any weather change. In my opinion, a jumpsuit covers all bases.
Feeling a bit hot? You can take off your jacket and let your strappy jumpsuit do the talking. The rain comes pouring down? You can rest easy knowing that your covered legs will not be sodden by the time you make your way to the church.
As if that wasn’t enough to persuade you, jumpsuits are always going to be stylish. You just need to pair it with a necklace and a clutch and you’ll be the second-best-dressed there.
Suited and Booted
You can always expect to see a few suits at a wedding, but who says that the men are the only ones who can turn up suited and booted? I love wearing a tailored suit with my heels because it’s chic, sophisticated, and totally on-trend. You can play around with the pattern and the cut of the pantsuit, and you can even add a skirt into the mix if you want. All you need to do is pair this suit up with a shirt, a beautiful set of heels, and a hairstyle of dreams. The best part? You’ll stay warm the whole time!
The thought of an upcoming winter wedding can fill you with dread, but it doesn’t need to be that way. Winter weddings are the perfect chance for you to experiment with new styles and outfits that you wouldn’t ever wear during the summer months.
