Randy, Nicole, I can't think of better people to ask this question than you! The majority of weddings happening in warm weather, there seems to be few good options for winter brides. I'm considering a Montreal wedding next February with a winter wonderland theme, but really can't find many dresses that would be season-appropriate. Can you suggest any alternative better than a regular summer dress that comes in a heavier fabric and add a furry shoulder cover-up? Another site recommends a red dress, but I want white or ivory! Thank you! Montreal Bride

Hi Montreal Bride, I am originally from Montreal myself and I know what you are saying about options for colder weather dresses. I am planning mine for Thanksgiving weekend in Montreal and we both know that the weather could be sunny and warm or at about freezing. I am chosing to add sleeves to my dress and instead of a shrug or bolero jacket I am getting a cape made in one of my wedding colors...I got the idea from my sister who had a hooded white velvet cape when she was married and she carried a muff with an orchid on it instead of carrying a bouquet. Mine will not have a hood and will be in a beautiful bold rust orange. Good luck with planning your wedding.

Dear Montreal Bride, May I suggest a cape? My mom made a hooded cape for my sister that was bridal satin on the inside and white velvet on the outside. I am going to be wearing a cape with my gown for my October wedding in Montreal, but mine will be in a beautiful dark orange (one of my main wedding colors). Good luck planning your wedding.

Dear Montreal Bride, I can understand your dilemma as most gowns today are made strapless. As far as fabrics go, it's true that taffeta and shantung are lighter than satin, and so is lace, but both are usually lined at least with one layer of lining, and up to 6 layers depending on the construction of the gown. Also keep in mind that a lot of dresses are made with a built-in petticoat that will add extra layers of warmth. If you just wish to cover your shoulders and arms here are several options. One is to have a custom-made bolero or shrug out of the same fabric as your gown. There are some stunning ones that are beaded and embroidered by Monique Lhuillier and Lazaro. Romona Keveza and Augusta Jones also make some pretty lace ones. The second is a cape, shawl, or stole purchased or custom made. The third is a pashmina to wrap around yourself. The fourth is a fur bolero, jacket, stole, or shrug. I realize that this may feel like it has been added onto your outfit, but then you can remove it and be able to party and dance without the restriction of a set-in sleeve. Think of it as an accessory as you would a light sweater or coat to wear in the winter. Keep in mind that probably most of your wedding will be taking place indoors where there is heating. Also, I feel that a lot of the rules for what a person should wear were made before we had heating and air conditioning. My motto is, "If you know the rules, you can break the rules!" Thanks for the question. I hope this helps! PS. I don't understand the red dress option. HMMMM?? I do agree that you should wear white or ivory! Best! RANDY

To whom it may concern, I'm not a wedding and marriage kind of girl. I never dreamt of it since I was a little girl (like most girls) and am (maybe now - was!) a big jaded sinic of the whole marriage/wedding concept. The reason I am writing you today is hard to believe even for me. While I was not a fan of the whole girly wedding thing, I must admit I am addicted to your show and have been watching since day one. I never knew that I could be so into this type of thing and I truly owe it all to you guys at Kleinfeld's. From the president to all the sales associates you guys are truly contagious with such a level of dedication and passion for what you do. I see how you guys always do everything in your power to bring joy to women preparing for their special day. Even though I've never been to your store or imagined myself looking, let alone finding a wedding dress I have an annoucement to make. No! I didn't just get engaged (nor anytime soon to my knowledge), but you know how you guys always talk about the moment when a bride "knows" that this is the dress. Well... while playing around on the computer, as the true insomniac that I am, I completely and utterly and unbelievebaly just had that "moment"! Out of nowhere, I think I've found "the dress"! I tried to save the website and even the picture of it because I never felt so strongly or sure about something this quick. I am the most indecisive person - PERIOD! It takes me years just to figure out what to eat at a restaurant- no seriously I'm not kidding. So when this happened just now at 5:30 ish A.M. I had to go with my heart and take it as a sign that this is it. Please! Please! Please! I've searched your website over and over and still cannot find the actual Style number and/or Name of my version of "the dress". Hee-hee. I am attaching the picture below and where I exaclty found it on your website in hopes that someone will be able to tell me the Style number of the dress and the description of it like the ones you find when looking up any others. How to find this picture in case it helps find info for dress: a) go to website b) click on far right category/link that says "Say Yes To The Dress" ( http://www.kleinfeldbridal.com/index.cfm?pid=Say-Yes-To-The-Dress ) C) it's right on the page that opens up once you do- b) Fondly, Un-Jaded
