What to wear to a winter wedding

Dressing for a wedding in winter doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style for warmth. Your invitation to a winter wedding ceremony in the UK means the opposite. It’s all about choosing a heavier fabric, longer-length dresses and the right cover-up. And you can still wear a sleeveless dress and florals, swap pastels for bold patterns and colours. A dressy trouser suit or jumpsuit with long sleeves are warmer option too.

Wedding outfit ideas for colder months

Dressing for a Winter Wedding

Consider whether the venue is inside or outside when attending a wedding during the winter months. The prospect of rain, wind or even snow in the UK is undoubtedly possible during the winter season, in which case a long sleeve dress may be the default option on a chilly day. Even if the reception is indoors, the wedding ceremony may include standing outside in the cold, throwing confetti or waiting for the wedding photographs.

Best Winter Wedding Colours

Winter wedding 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 jacquard silk jacket or velvet wrap. Faux fur stoles and jackets edged with fake fur offer a wonderful tactile appeal too.

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

What colours to wear to a winter wedding

Winter opens up new ideas for bright, bold, darker shades and seasonal colours suit that winter wedding guest outfit or dress. Stand out colours include rich navy blues, burgundy, purples, and yellow and quirky pops of deep reds and bold fuchsia pinks.

Winter Fashion for Wedding Guests

Winter weddings are becoming increasingly popular, so make the most of what the season has to offer. Key looks for winter include velvet, embroidery, lace, prints, pleats, sequins and shimmer. Choosing a little sparkle allows plenty of wear out of your winter wedding outfit, especially around Christmas.

There are plenty of trends to dip into once summer is over, with maxi and midi lengths a more practical choice. Wedding guest dresses with sleeves, and higher necklines provide a little more coverage while looking just as elegant.


How to style a sleeveless dress for a winter wedding

Just because it’s winter, don’t rule out wearing a sleeveless dress for a special occasion. It is easy to cover up and keep warm in a style that compliments the dress. You will find occasion dresses with matching jackets or coats and other winter wedding outfits from brands such as Gina Bacconi, Phase Eight and Hobbs.

A winter wedding is an ideal time to put together your winning combination. A neutral tailored coat always looks chic and works well left undone over shift dresses. At the same time, a fabulous faux fur stole will add a luxe look to both day and evening gowns. Arm coverage also includes chiffon boleros, shrugs and shawls, cropped jackets, and elegant beaded capes.


Is it OK to wear a floral dress for a winter wedding?

A floral dress is not just for spring and summer; it is a versatile print that transcends seasons. So embrace your love of florals and botanical prints no matter what the temperature is outside. Go with bold colours, especially berry hues, for a rich, opulent look perfect for cold-weather dressing.

Timeless dress suits also work well for the Mother of the Bride or Groom and Grandmother. You will find coordinating layers from short coats, longline jackets, boleros, and shawls. A silk dress and jacquard frock coat are a stunning choice for colder months. Best of all, the dress can easily be dressed up or down later in the day at the reception.

Winter wedding outfits and special occasions needn’t be dull. It’s not just the Mother of the Bride or wedding guests looking for the season’s best styles. The party season is just around the corner, so a little inspiration will help find the perfect look for an evening event too.

Embroidered jackets, silk dresses in beautifully cut wool coats to match, dressy trouser suits and beaded dress suits make dressing up fun.

Can you wear trousers to a wedding

You most certainly can wear trousers to a wedding. Not everyone is comfortable in a dress, and trousers can be just as occasion-worthy. Dress up wide-leg trousers with a pretty silk blouse, heels, and a well-structured jacket. Alternatively, go with a tailored trouser suit for a more refined look. Finally, a beautiful lace overlay jumpsuit is a great dress alternative for a special occasion.

Keep your style fashion-focused with velvet gowns, long-sleeved midi dresses, and chiffon wide-leg trousers with matching camisole and jacket. Timeless buys can be adapted to see you through the cooler months and many more.

Young Mother of the Bride Dresses

For a young Mother of the Bride outfit, look to dresses inspired by the latest trends. A short fitted dress with a Bardot neckline or peplum waist is an elegant combination. Fit and flare dresses with a dipped hem are far from matronly and so chic for an edgy option. Other youthful occasionwear for a wedding includes off-the-shoulder and wide-collar dresses with a full skirt. Complete your look with the perfect day-to-night bag, accessories, and dancefloor-ready shoes.

Designer Mother of the Bride Dresses

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 a winter wedding outfit that is unique and striking after all they are going to be in the spotlight too.


Mother of the Bride Wedding and Occasion Coats

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


Winter hats and fascinators

There are many types of hat styles to suit all face shapes and personalities. Not everyone feels confident enough to wear a hat; that’s where fascinators come into the mix. These can be just as stunning and less likely to block anyone out of the wedding photos. If you are petite, an upturned brim will give the illusion of height, whereas taller ladies can carry off the most extravagant creations.

Whether you choose to wear a hat to a wedding is up to you. However, here are some suggestions and styles of headwear for a winter wedding.

  • Downturn disc hat
  • Ivory and black lace disc hatinator
  • Pillbox with diamanté feathers and curls
  • Flower and loop small side disc hat
  • Silver Grey hat with feather and quill
  • Jade disc fascinator
  • Claret felt pillbox with bow
  • Black floral mesh headband
  • Purple bow disc fascinator
  • Sequin pillbox fascinator

Choosing the right accessories

Luxe textures and embellishments found on winter wedding outfits give a glamorous feel. You need to add the finishing touches. All the same colour accessories can look flat and dull, and that’s not the result you are after. So instead, look to contrast the colours of your outfit with your bag, shoes, hat or fascinator. Adding a deeper shade to your dress will add depth and interest to the overall look.

Whichever outfit you choose for a winter wedding, you need to feel comfortable, so plan what you will wear in advance and ultimately enjoy the special day.
