Winter is a wonderful time of year to get married. The colder temperatures and shorter days offer you the opportunity to make your ceremony and reception truly unique. One of the best ways to do this is by winterizing yours and the wedding party’s wardrobe. It’s fun, affordable, and looks terrific in pictures and in person. Here are some great options to make your wedding wardrobe look amazing.
Winter allows you to escape the traditional pastels of a spring or summer wedding. Don’t be afraid to go with darker, richer colors for your bridesmaids’ dresses. Navy blues, deep purples, and scarlet hues add a touch of drama that plays well with the early sunsets at this time of the year. Consider an ivory dress and veil rather than a stark white, and use black tuxedos to compliment the girls’ attire. Jewel tone gems can be worn as the perfect accent to these rich, vibrant colors.
Winter means colder temperatures. What better way to compliment this than with heavier clothing? This is especially dramatic when the ceremony or reception is held in a venue with plenty of windows that may look out on the snow-covered grounds. Skip a traditional veil for a fur hat. They can be found at a reasonable price from sites like FurHatWorld.com. Trade the typical bridesmaids’ bouquets for muffs, and have the men wear dressy gloves to coordinate with the wintery theme. When bundling up, dress in floor length gowns with long sleeves for a more cohesive appearance among the girls.
Add Some Ice
Nothing shouts winter more than ice. Add the feel of ice to your wedding wardrobe with bridesmaids’ attire and flowers created in lighter shades of blue while the bride’s dress can be made out of a crisp, white with plenty of sequins and beading for additional sparkle. Diamond or crystal jewelry will further enhance your ice filled look. Consider tiaras or rhinestone and crystal hair combs for the bride as well as bridesmaids. Choose tuxedos in lighter grays, tans, or even whites for a more wintery style to match the women’s wedding day style.
Adding a touch of winter to you and your wedding party’s wardrobe will help create a wintery theme to the entire wedding day. Use any of these tips to create truly unique looks without blowing your entire wedding day budget. You’ll end up with a magical day that no one will soon forget.
