Winter Wedding Outfits
Winter wedding outfits may seem trickier than their summer counterparts, but are a wonderful opportunity to explore romantic glamour. Leave the pastels and brights to the summer months; winter weddings are the perfect time to indulge in jewel tones and luscious fabrics. Swathe yourself in velvet and top off with fur-trimmed accessories, such as a shrug or bolero, to keep the chill out and the glam factor high.
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts – When planning wedding outfits, a holistic approach is best taken; the entire ensemble needs to be considered as a whole, without conflicting pieces vying for attention. Chic wedding outfits are made up of complimentary elements – hat, bag, shoes, jewellery – which harmonise with one another. Building upon the foundation of a great dress, carefully considered accessories will complete an ensemble, adding up to equal an impressive wedding outfit.
Stick to the classics – Lots of photos are bound to be taken. In the years after the wedding, you want to look back on the happy day with fond memories, not cringing at how awfully dated your look was! Trends are great for everyday fun with fashion, but are best in small doses for such a special occasion. Sticking with the classics and what you know suits you best will ensure you feel good on the day, and save you embarrassment years down the line! A classic, versatile piece will stay in your wardrobe for years, ensuring you get your money’s worth.
Consider comfort – A wedding usually has several stages of ceremony and celebration, making it a long day. Often beginning in a chilly church, you’re likely to end your day working off the wedding cake on the dance floor. Keep in mind venue and comfort when selecting wedding outfits; what may feel good in the comfort of your own home could be a different story after a three-course wedding breakfast (not forgetting the champagne!) Layers are important; you may spend a lot of time outside posing for the official photographs, only to be working up a sweat dancing later on. And no matter how gorgeous those high heels are, they have to be comfortable and fit properly, otherwise navigating loose stone paths at the church could prove tricky!
