Winter Wedding Colours

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.
