A white wedding, in a very different sense of the word, can be a beautiful thing. Snow makes for a stunning backdrop and unforgettable wedding photographs – so much so that now, more than ever, brides and grooms are choosing to wed in a winter wonderland.
So, as a guest – what should you wear? Well, in the winter months, when all can seem a little bit darker, a spot of sparkle goes a long way in the style stakes. Metallic garments have a wintery feel, while plum, berry or a deep red are all fabulously festive.
The good thing about shopping in winter means that there is always a huge range of glittery courts, platforms and even simple pumps for when you’ve had enough of your dancing shoes, but not the dance floor. Bag-wise, opt for a sleek clutch to hold all your party must-haves.
As wonderful as winter can be, the chill in the air can be an issue but, on the bright side, it’s a good excuse to throw on some faux fur. A wrap, cropped jacket or full-length winter coat will take you from icy to eye-catching.
Rather than a full-sized hat or fascinator, a dramatic headpiece is an interesting way to decorate your hair at winter weddings – anything else could detract too much from the sparkle of your dress or shoes. Always remember that, no matter the season, less is more.
As ever, the correct accessories are key to winter wedding style. Chandelier earrings and pendant necklaces are gorgeous at winter, while an over-sized brooch will look beautiful on that fur wrap.
