Winter Wedding Accessories

1. Wedding Dress Styles

Opting for a long-sleeve wedding dress is not only an easy way to stay warm but is classic elegance.  You only have to look to Meghan Markle’s beautiful Givenchy wedding dress - now showcased at Windsor Castle – with its three-quarter length sleeve and off-shoulder style, proves practical can be stylish.


2. Stay Warm!

If you have your heart set on a short sleeve or sleeveless dress, a faux fur stole or cape could be the ideal winter warmer for your wedding day. One of our lovely brides, Polly opted for a delicate veil-style cape for her big day in October 2017 which meant more photos on St George’s Terrace.


3. Bridesmaid Dresses

At this time of year, you can be forgiven for indulging in a little glitter! Sequin/glittery bridesmaid dresses look great in photos whether it’s red, silver or gold. If you want to tie in with your bridesmaids, why not match with a pair of sparkly shoes or waist band?


4. Colour

A romantic colour scheme can add real warmth to a winter wedding, especially if you include deep ruby or mahogany tones. Earthy green hues and a splash of tartan creates a cosy feel to any reception venue.


5. Post-Ceremony

When thinking about your winter wedding favours, practicality plays quite a big part. If cooler temperatures are forecasted for your big day, blankets or pashminas are perfect to warm your younger guests. Irish cream miniatures and spiced wine or cider are popular winter tipples.


Other things to think about….

  • Lighting – with the sun setting earlier this time of year, you may want to think about adjusting your photo schedule. A quirky alternative to extra lighting would be fairy-light umbrellas – handy if its rainy too!


  • Travelling – no matter how far you are travelling to your ceremony it may be worth to consider extra time.


  • Stay warm – wrap up and keep warm with thick woolly tights. If you are wearing a full-length dress no one will see and you’ll stay toasty.
