Winter wedding gown

A classic winter wedding gown dress needs to have the right accessories. Many brides prefer to wear wedding boots to a winter ceremony. Capes and jackets are also very common and often worn by the wedding party.  Additionally, not to be forgotten are head coverings or muffs and gloves.


Winter wedding dresses

Winter wedding dresses tend to be heavier than those that are worn in the summer. Brides have a tendency to stay away from the light fabrics. Winter gowns often use a lot of brocades and pearls. Velvets and other heavy cloths are ideal for this time of year. Designers like to use faux fur and feathers in many of their creations. The dresses for the wedding party should follow along these same lines.

Winter Brides that have chosen to have a Christmas theme wedding often like to have red used in their wedding gown. This may be something as simple as a tiny bit of red ribbon to a gown that is completely red with just a bit of white used for trim. Dark green is another color that is often favored by winter brides and their maids.

Why wait? With all the possible winter wedding ideas forget about summer, and the heat and bugs, consider a winter ceremony.
