Snowy winter months are perfect for having a fairytale wedding. Frosty white shades all around you would look enchanting, alongside the entire bridal ensemble. While the dreamscape of cold months is perfect for creating a magical feel, the crispy winter can make the search for the perfect bridal style extra difficult. The bride must pay more attention to the gown, shoes, hair, and make-up choice during the cold months, so it’s good to have a few tips in mind if she decides to have a winter wedding.

The Gown

If you’ve decided for a winter wedding, you should definitely consider wearing a wedding gown with long sleeves. It’s imperative that you’re warm, cozy and tucked in, so be sure to go for the Duchess of Cambridge-like look, and have a gorgeous embroidered long-sleeved wedding dress. A gown with sequins, crystals, and silver embellishments will look fascinating in combination with an enchanting white veil. A half-sleeve A-line wedding dress would be another amazing choice that will keep you warm and comfortable. Whether you go for an off the shoulder or a noble line tank top, you’ll look gorgeous.

Cover Ups and Accessories

Cold winter months call for some warm cover-ups. You don’t want to catch a cold and get sick on your honeymoon just because you didn’t want to hide your gorgeous dress under a coat. Fortunately, faux fur cover-ups come in various hues, so you can choose from white, beige, ivory to caramel, and brown. Put a faux fur stole over your shoulders for a gorgeous and elegant look. A fur coat is also a good choice, especially if you’re having your wedding in the area with very cold winters. A cardigan, a light bridal jacket or a bolero could be a great alternative to a fur coat. Just go for cream, ivory or white tones and you’ll look beautiful.
Pin a stole with a vintage brooch, add some of your favorite bridal jewelry sets to the entire ensemble, and get that stunning winter bride look everyone will admire. Long lace wedding gloves would be a perfect addition to the wedding look. This is especially true if you’ve opted for a cap sleeve wedding gown. Long lace wedding gloves would look elegant and sophisticated, so be sure to consider them when choosing the ultimate bridal look.

Hair and Make-up

Winter humidity and cold air can be dreadful for the hair. Prevent any frizzy locks and make sure to nourish the hair with a serum before you style it. Furthermore, since the weather is sometimes unpredictable during the winter, it would be a good idea to have an elegant bun instead of a curly hairstyle. You won’t have to worry about fixing your hair or fizziness. Consider using berry shades for your make-up. Violet, copper, and reddish brown are some of the hues that would make the perfect winter bride make-up. A timeless red lipstick in combination with a lighter complexion and rosy cheeks is all you need to look amazing on your wedding day.

The Shoes

You might not be able to have princess-like strappy sandals, but that doesn’t mean you’ll look less fabulous. Satin white shoes are one of the choices you should consider if your wedding venue doesn’t concern earthy grounds. If the winter gets really cold and icy, opt for a pair of lace up winter boots that will provide you with stability and prevent you from slipping or twisting your ankle. A low heel white satin and lace embroidered pair of pumps is another ideal footwear that will also be comfortable.

Final Thoughts

Winter weddings call for a little more preparation, so be sure to have all the previous suggestions in mind. Prepare your hair, get a warm dress and cover-ups, and consider various footwear in order to have a warm fairytale wedding.
