Winter Wedding

The busiest wedding season typically runs from the end of April through the beginning of October and then things slow down considerably. It makes sense- lots of people want to have at least part of their wedding outdoors, whether it's a ceremony in a woodsy setting or a reception at a local yacht club. Whether it's a glorious, sunny day with clear blue skies that you're hoping for, or surroundings of bright red, gold and orange with peak fall foliage, it's understandable why the majority of brides choose dates during those months.

But there are always a few brides every year who opt for a winter wedding. They're the ones checking the weather report and actually hoping for a cloudy forecast- they actually want something to fall from the sky on their wedding day- they want SNOW!

Of course, formal wear doesn't always mix well with freezing temperatures, so these brave winter brides have to find an extra accessory or two to keep warm. If you are one of those brides, have no fear- we have all sorts of stylish choices to keep you cozy and elegant:

This fur capelet in ivory is about as luxurious a choice as you could make to keep warm for a winter wedding.
 
If fur is a little out of your price range, try feathers- they look almost the same, and are warm and fuzzy, too!
 
Of course, you don't have to be entirely matchy-matchy with your warm fuzzies, either. This gorgeous silver fox wrap looks just as great with this lace Monique Lhuillier gown as it would with a wool overcoat. And let's face it- if you can wear at least some of your wedding attire again, wouldn't you want to?
 
Another thing our winter brides tend to love is sparkle. A lot of brides have been choosing New Year's Eve for a wedding date, so it stands to reason they'd look for a glitzy gown to match the event! Simple sheath gowns with maximum sparkle are the New Year's Eve bride's first choice- they sparkle like the top of the Chrysler building while still being small enough to easily dance the night away in them. What more could you ask for?
 
 
Of course, if you don't want to sparkle head to toe, you can always just wear some bling-y accessories. Maybe a nice statement earring or a spectacular headpiece like this:
 
 
When I was in the midst of planning this blog post, we had a bride in for one of her last fittings and she just epitomized the "winter bride" look from head to toe! Check out Chelsea- her gown sparkles from top to bottom and she found a perfect fur jacket to keep her cozy and warm for her December wedding. We love everything about her look and can't wait to see photos!
