Winter Wedding Trends and Styles

Although winters can be chilly and dim, winter weddings are growing in popularity, shedding light on the true beauty of a winter bride.  

Here are some wedding dress trends to look out for this winter season!

Heavier fabrics:

· Silk satin and silk Mikado fabrics are heavier, which makes them the fabric of choice for winter weddings.

· Ball gowns and trumpet mermaid styles are very popular in these fabrics.

· Strapless to long sleeve bodices are perfect for winter weddings. Currently, winter brides that choose a strapless bodice will pair their look with a bolero jacket or luxurious cashmere wrap.

 A great example is the Justina McCaffrey Gown Silk Satin Gown .

Lace Boleros and Jackets:

For brides that are looking for coverage over their strapless gown, a sophisticated alencon or luxurious Chantilly lace bolero is the perfect choice, such as this Justina McCaffrey delicately beaded Chantilly lace bolero.

Boleros and Jackets not only help with the outside elements, but they also help with coverage for traditional church ceremonies.

Beadwork & Embellishments:

Whether its crystals, pearls or clear sequins, beading on a winter wedding gown will make any bride feel like a princess. 

The crystals will sparkle against the glistening snow and the evening candlelight.  For the bride that wants to make a memorable entrance, she may choose to wear a gown with tone on tone or silver embroidery that is accented with sparkling clear crystals and pearls. 

She will definitely make her guests eyes light up with delight, especially in this Reem Acra “Incredible” couture bridal gown.

Color:

Blush pinks and ice blue gowns have become popular for the bride who wants to be different, yet still wants to be elegant and glamorous. 

A great time to wear these colors is during the colder months. Look for a subtle, soft blush gown that will bring warmth to a lighter skin tone, especially in the winter months. 

A beautiful choice is the Monique Lhuillier “Bloom” with Chantilly lace and tulle.
