What To Wear To A Winter Wedding

what to wear to a winter wedding

Winter weddings can be daunting. You don’t want to outshine the bride, but you do want to come a very close second – and we’re here to make that dream achievable. Pastel shades and garden cocktails are out, but rich hues, luxe textures and large glasses of Shiraz are very much in.

The Beaded Number

Would it really be a winter wedding without a bit of party season sparkle? Sequins might be a bit OTT for a wedding, but their sophisticated cousin the beaded dress is perfect for that glamorous 20s inspired feel.

The Stroke-able Number

Velvet is the key fabric of the party season. Try something like this Celine Teal Maxi Dress, for a style that’s really wearable and won’t leave you feeling like you’re dressed in your nan’s curtains.

The Metallic Number

More subtle than sequins but with all the festive glam you need. Go for a textured crinkle like this metallic maxi to make you look more chic and less quality street.

The Red Siren Number

If a winter wedding isn’t a place to get festive, then when is? We’re not suggesting you go dressed as Mrs Claus, but a red dress, like this wrapover style, is the perfect seasonal look.

The All In One Number

Because sometimes, the thought of getting your legs out when it’s approximately -30 degrees outside (or at least thats what it feels like) isn’t the most appealing idea. Which is when this Cape Plunge Front Jumpsuit comes in to save you.

The Winter Floral Number

Florals aren’t just for summertime, a dark floral dress is the best way to work a classic sunshine look for when it’s more drizzle and grey cloud than golden hour.

The We’ve Got You Covered Number

Long sleeve maxi dresses are perfect as they give you (some) protection from the elements. Another plus is it also means there’s no prep needed for the parts of your body that might not have seen the light of day for a few months – win win!

The Classic Lace Number

As long as it’s not white, a lace dress is a perfect wedding guest option. This Daliah Lace Dress in a forest green is a real winner for any winter wedding.

The New Season Slip Number

A slip dress will always be the ultimate go to for any occasion, and you can still count on this for a winter look. Opt for a darker shade liked this Cowl Neck Midi in a dark green – so you don’t look like you’ve turned up at the wrong wedding. Just throw on a structured blazer to keep that chill off.

The High Neck Number

You may think a high neck is a bit Mother of the Bride. But this Gracie Midi Dress with a draped high neck, adds some real sophistication and class to your wedding guest look.
