Are you a lucky bride-to-be whose wedding will be graced by the crystalline beauty of a winter wonderland? Picturesque as your winter wedding might be, you’re going to need to stay chic and warm when you pose for your photos or when you go to and from the ceremony venue. At some point, you will be forced to endure the cold, so make sure your wedding dress will keep winter’s chill at bay! Here are three things winter wedding dresses must have so that you can stay comfortable cozy throughout your big day:

Heavy fabrics

Weighty fabrics like peau de soie offers all the warm and insulation you need from winter’s chill. When lined well, thicker fabrics can also provide adequate protection from the cold.


If you choose to go sleeveless, you can wear a bolero, cape, or shrug, made of the same material as your wedding dress. Alternately, you can veer away from the matchy-matchy route and use wool, cashmere, or velvet to provide a nice contrast to your wedding dress. Most designers suggest using capes to cover up – they’ve got lots of room, which means they won’t squish the shape of your wedding dress.

Stoles and wraps are another way to stay warm without taking too much attention away from your dress’s design. Other stylish substitutes for sleeves include opera length gloves, or a furry muff to keep your hands toasty warm.

A chic hat

Keeping your ears and head warm is just as important as keeping the rest of your body warm. Try a headpiece made of feathers, marabou, or a fur-lined hat.
