Getting Married in the Winter? Here Are Details to Look For in Your Dress

Winter is in full swing here in New York City, and that means winter weddings are on everyone’s minds. Thinking about having a winter wedding or planning to get married somewhere snowy? We’ve got dress inspo for you! Find out which details we suggest looking for in wedding dresses to keep the winter weather vibes going, below.

Sophisticated Sleeves

Sleeves were trending this fall at Bridal Fashion Week—the perfect detail to carry into this season. The easiest way to stay warm while still looking fashion-forward is by opting for a wedding dress with sleeves. Whether you prefer a simple silk crepe, romantic illusion with appliqués, or dreamy lace, there’s plenty of sleeved options to choose from.

Festive Fabrics

Temperatures are cooling down, and that means more freedom to play around with thicker fabrics that otherwise would be too warm during spring and summer. Try a chic Mikado or a heavier Alençon lace to fend off the cold and match the festive vibe at the same time.

Detachable Details

Planning to get married outside to take advantage of the beautiful winter scenery, and then move inside for your reception? Try a style with a detachable skirt or bolero. Not only do you get two looks in one, but a bolero or topper will also provide warmth as you say your I dos.

Chic Capes

Not only a great way to layer, but an excellent alternative to a veil, a cape is a great winter-weather approved option to pair with your wedding dress. Capes are also a great way to get two looks in one (or even three), depending on if you do a veil and dress combo for your ceremony, and then a cape and dress combo for your reception.
