It is very obvious that spaghetti and strapless wedding dresses are not suitable for a winter wedding. That is because of the cold weather, yet it’s not that it’s illegal or something. If you can stand the cold temperature and no problem having a strapless romantic wedding dress, then go for it. There’s also a solution if you want a strapless, a one-strap or a spaghetti wedding dress. With the use of a blazer or a short coat, any of those three kinds of dresses may do to protect your skin from coldness.
2. Aim for Elegance and Sophistication

It is important to make your look elegant despite the cold and chilly weather. You do not have to tie your beautiful hair, instead, simply put your hair down and make it stretched. Well, that is if you have a long hair which must be at least below the shoulders. Any wedding dress would be a match if your hair is placed down. Just wear a tiara or a jewelled comb that supports your veil so you can look more sophisticated. To make your look stunning with your wedding dress, have a nice hairstyle as well that makes you feel warm. That can provide cover for your ear and shoulders to keep you cozy.
3. Go for Dark Shades

There is a color code for wedding dresses, which is also essential to consider and keep in mind. When choosing a winter wedding dress, dark colors are much better because they provide warmth. Plus, you can’t wear any bright color during winter. The bride needs to wear white wedding gown, but if you want to follow out of the norm, then select a darker color. This also applies to bridesmaids, maid of honor and flower girls. The best choices of colors of winter wedding dresses for a bride are plum, dark sage green, black and hot pink, and burgundy.
4. Don a Thick Dress
Note, there are other kinds of wedding dresses that have sheer top and skirt. Those are not suitable for a winter wedding, because they cannot give warmth. However, there are still thicker materials to select from such as heavy satin, velvet, silk, wool, and 100% cotton. Those are things that can keep you feel a lot warmer during the ceremony until the reception.
5. Feel Comfortable

While the secrets are out, it’s time to begin your short journey of finding your wedding dress. I’m pretty sure you are excited as ever now especially that you have an idea of what to look for.
