With Fall quickly coming to an end, winter is upon us. We say goodbye to those autumn reds, oranges, yellows, and greens, and bring in the winter whites, cool blue, and deep reds. Winter is the perfect season to bring out holiday colors, go bright and sparkly, wear some elegant sleeves, and top it all off with a gorgeous fur coat.
Don’t let the cold weather temperatures limit your dress choices. If strapless is your thing, go for it. But, if you want to switch things up a bit and feel like you’re in the winter, try a dress with some long sleeves. Sleeves add a touch of elegance to a gown that sleeveless can’t quite capture. You’ll be sure to a be a princess on your wedding day. If you still want a strapless look, try an off the shoulder dress with sleeves to get the best of both worlds.
A winter wedding is the perfect time to break out that fabulous fur. If you don’t own any, Aleana’s Bridal will rent one to you for your wedding day. It’s a simple and classic way to keep you warm on a cold winter day, without covering up your dress or taking too much away from it.
If you don’t want to be cold, then it stands to reason that your bridesmaids wouldn’t want to be cold either, right? Although you’re less likely to find long sleeve dresses for your girls, there are still options to keep them cozy. If you don’t want them to freeze, gift them a warm accessory to keep things uniform. If not, don’t be too picky about what they wear over their dresses. They just want to be warm!
If it’s cold out, you don’t want your toes to freeze. Don’t be afraid to wear some cozy boots or moccasins. As long as you get it hemmed accordingly, no one will even see the shoes beneath the dress. You can also wear them outside, and swap them out for another pair once you’re inside.
