Buying a winter wedding dress style is one of the luxuries of holding a winter wedding. Why? Because while summer wedding dresses have limitations, winter dresses have none. Wearing a cape with faux fur would be inappropriate for a summer wedding, however it is perfect for a winter wedding. However, unlike summer, if you wore a short sleeved dress at a winter wedding, no one would bat an eye. Summer is associted with florals and pastels, but those can also be worn at winter weddings, however, it might be uncomfortable to wear a black wedding dress at a summer wedding. Thats the greatest part about having a winter wedding dress, the versitility.
Accessories are another great advantage of winter weddings.You can't wear boots to a summer wedding (well you can but come on, ugh). Fur trimmings are gauche on a summer wedding dresses, but fabulous on the trim and hem of dresses. You can't use a muff to add style to your dress in the summer, but it's one of the best and most unique accessories a bride can have at a winter wedding. A muff can be used in place of a bouquet as well.
Colors are another advantage of a winter wedding. Black is in! And a black and white dress will add class and sophistication to a modern style wedding. Trying for something different? Red is the color of passion, love and heat. Make his blood run hot in your hot-red winter wedding dress. Red is also the color of Christmas, which makes a red winter wedding dress the perfect choice!
I haven't even mentioned fabrics. Wool, heavy satin, velour, velvet, these are the fabrics available for winter, which are very inappropriate to wear during summer. Brighten up fabrics with lucious sparkling sequins, embellishments and pearls.
With all these choices, it's a wonder that weddings still take place mostly in June.
