Occasion dressing for the cooler season can be just as fun as summer time. A winter wedding (in the UK December, January and February) is a time for the Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom and Grandmother of the Bride to show their style credentials. A sophisticated dress and matching frock coat with detachable corsage offers an instantly put together look. While dressy trouser suits give an alternative look that is ultra modern. Figure flattering plus size clothing from Navabi and Chesca provide the perfect balance between style and comfort.

For great savings on previous collections look to Just Last Season. Here you will find complete occasion outfits from Jacques Vert, Eastex, Precis Petite and Windsmoor. Weighty fabrics are definitely the order of the day during the colder months; velvet, brocade and thick satin are ideal for an autumn or winter wedding. Fabulous frocks can be teamed with a wrap, fur stole or shawl for added warmth. Winter occasion outfits need never be dull and can look striking in rich tones of evergreen, merlot, midnight blue, silver, silver grey, magenta, teal, charcoal and aquamarine.

Modern Winter Wedding Outfits

Modern wedding outfits, bridesmaid dresses and bridal wear styles can be found at Phase Eight and Coast. Elegant day dresses and evening gowns from Gina Bacconi, L.K. Bennett, Hobbs and Karen Millen will keep your look bang up to date. Plenty of shimmer, lace and fun colour block dresses guarantee to get you noticed.

Wedding stores are very helpful and are packed with designer outfits for a wedding and the Mother of the Bride or Groom can get inspiration on the best style and colour

Up to the minute collections from classic tailoring to fashionable flair and contemporary styling will suit a younger Mother of the Bride as well as more mature sophisticated ladies too. Modern women whatever their age will want an outfit that is unique and striking after all they are going to be in the spotlight too.

 

The luxurious fabrics and embellishments found on autumn and winter occasion wear give a regal feel to any outfit making it that more special. Choosing matching accessories including designer hats, fascinators, shoes and handbags to compliment rather than dominate is the secret of a successful Mother of the Bride outfit. The trick is to find a balance there is no need to try and have everything matching.

 

Winter Wedding Colours

Winter outfits can be just as elaborate as spring and summer creations and there is no need to go for a complete cover up. Dresses can be with or without sleeves and topped with a jacket or wrap in stiffer material like velvet. Fur stoles and jackets edged with fake fur offer a wonderful tactile appeal.

There may not be the warmth of the sun but a Mother of the Bride winter wedding outfit certainly can be a kaleidoscope of vibrant colour. Warm deep pinks, purples, gold and brown will look stunning with a backdrop of a winter setting.
