AUTHOR: BIRDY GREY | DATE: 12/11/2023

So you scored an invite to a winter wedding? How chic! Dressing for cold-weather nuptials can be both glamorous and challenging. How do you not spend the evening freezing? What shoes do you wear if there’s snow on the ground? The good news - it’s not as challenging as you would think. And as long as you’re not sporting a black tie gown and snow boots, you’re good.

A winter wedding is an opportunity to showcase your style prowess while keeping the chill at bay. With the right attire—be it a velvet dress, a tailored suit, or statement accessories—you'll not only be dressed to impress but also comfortably enjoy the festivities. Here's to celebrating love, fashionably and warmly!

Remember, above all, it's crucial to adhere to the dress code specified on the invitation. Whether the event calls for black-tie elegance or a more relaxed dress code, always strive to strike that perfect balance between fashion and function.

Feeling confident in what you're wearing is key. It's about being comfortable enough to enjoy the celebration without constantly fussing over your outfit. Winter weddings are a blast—filled with love, joy, and fantastic photo ops. Your outfit should not only complement the snowy backdrop but also reflect your unique style. So, embrace the season, rock that dress with flair, and get ready to celebrate love in the coziest and coolest way possible!

Here's a no-nonsense breakdown on what to wear to a winter wedding with three fool-proof outfits that are perfect for any party you’re a guest at.

 

Platinum Plus

A platinum dress is the perfect color choice for a cold-weather soiree. Donning a cool color offers a modern, inventive take on a winter theme and contrasts the traditional colors of the season. Opt for our Lisa Dress, a fabulous floor-length option for a cocktail or formal event. This flattering style is crafted in shiny satin, with a smooth, glossy surface, perfect for glamorous weddings and special events alike. Slightly thicker than our matte satin, this fabrication shines bright for high voltage style and moves like liquid metal.

Looking to layer? Throw our black blazer over your shoulders for a chic take on frosty-weather dressing. Pro tip: try a men’s jacket for a modern, oversized fit. The boxy cut gives your look an ‘80s flair. Top off the style with sheer black tights and pointed black pumps for a high glam style.

Say Yes to Neutrals

Looking for a fresh take on a winter wedding guest dress? Opt for a streamlined neutral gown. Our Ash Dress in crepe fits the bill. Known for its lightly pebbled hand feel, our stretchy, body-hugging crepe fabric is perfect for a modern look.

Top the look off with simple gold heels and a bold red lip for elegant style. Maybe even throw on a (faux) fur stole! It is winter after all.

Velvet Dreams

Winter calls for rich, luxurious fabrics that keep you warm while looking drop-dead gorgeous. Think velvet—a sumptuous material that exudes opulence. Choose jewel tones like emerald, cabernet, or navy to make a statement. A velvet dress screams sophistication and keeps you snug when the temperatures drop. Try our Hannah Dress or a simple, sophisticated style.
