5 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Winter Wedding Dress

Are you having a winter wedding but not sure how to choose your winter wedding dress? Don’t worry! There are a few things you should consider before purchasing your gown but we can help. Let’s take a look at 5 tips you can use when choosing your winter wedding dress.

#1 – Choose Your Colors

Before shopping for your gown, have your wedding colors chosen. While many brides will stick with the traditional white dress, others may opt to add in pops so it is best to know your colors first.

#2 – Decided If You Need A Covering

Does your wedding dress have sleeves? If not you may wish to consider choosing something to cover your arms such as a wedding fur wrap, chiffon bolero jacket, gray faux fur bolero, or a lace bridal jacket. Wedding jackets for brides are ideal for colder weather because not only do they keep your arms and back warm but they are also a nice accent to your dress.

#3 – Choose Your Shoes

Many brides tend to think their wedding shoes should match their dress and while they can, they don’t have to. You can choose to have your shoes be one of your wedding colors for a fun way to add a pop of color to your otherwise white gown.

#4 – Sashes Or Belts

While some dresses are completely stunning without a sash or a belt, it is a fun way to add interest, design and even color to your dress. If you prefer a plain wedding dress but still want just a little bling, a belt is the perfect way to go. They come in many designs, offer crystals, gems and beads as well as they can be in a variety of colors to match your wedding.

#5 – Jewelry

Some brides opt to have understated jewelry, allowing the dress to be the shining star. Others feel that larger jewelry pieces just add to the overall look and style. Consider purchasing your wedding jewelry from the same store as your gown so you can try on your gown with the jewelry to have a clear idea on what the whole package will look like.

Getting married can be overwhelming and exciting all at the same time. Add in trying to find the perfect dress and accessories for your special day and it can be downright scary but it doesn’t have to be. Take a deep breath, look at magazines, books and of course online. Check out the latest trends, look at classic looks and do your research. Once you have narrowed down the style you wish to focus on, head on in to a local shop or check out various online retailers for the dress that is perfect for you. Once you have that picked out, adding in all the other fine details will be easier and fun. Don’t get too overwhelmed because in the end, the day is about you and your partner, the rest will all fall into place!
