Add fur or other wintery accessories to winter wedding dresses. Fur is elegant, charming, and perfect for the season! You might add a fur stole, a cozy cashmere wrap, or even a pair of long leather gloves accented with pearls. With these types of accessories, you get the beauty of both worlds. You can wear a sleeveless or strapless dress at the reception, and during other parts of the day (when you are arriving, outdoors taking photos, or during the ceremony), you can don your wintery accessories. You will evoke the image of a film star from the 1940’s. Hint: You could even add some fur or feathers to a vintage hairpin. Just make sure not to do overdo it; if you are already wearing a fur stole it is probably best to keep your hair accessories simple.
Experiment with blues, silvers, and grays. A light icy blue wedding gown is absolutely stunning. You could also wear an ivory dress (whichever shade suits your skin tone best) and accentuate your waistline with a charcoal grey sash.
Fabrics for winter wedding dresses. Winter is the season for heavier fabrics, such as silks, satins, and thicker laces (like Battenberg), and your dress could be embellished with pearls, other beads, crystals, and sequins. Dresses with sleeves are also making a comeback (take a look at Grace Kelly’s 1956 wedding gown).
