Top Five Winter Wedding Dress Styles
For the bride who dreams of getting married in the cooler months, there are a few key elements to pay attention to when picking your dream dress, including whether your wedding will be indoors or outdoors. For brides having an outdoor wedding, you will want to consider the temperature and weather conditions when picking out a dress.
Popular winter wedding dress styles often include long sleeves and thicker fabrics like satin and silk to provide more coverage on the neck, arms and collarbone area. These will also provide extra warmth for those cooler temperatures and allow you to move freely without getting overheated while you dance the night away!

The long sleeves and deep scoop back are complemented by the voluminous skirt embellished with layers of ethereal tulle and lace applique that create a romantic look. This dress is available with additional options for customization.
Can I Wear Detachable Accessories for my Winter Wedding?
In short, yes! While it all comes down to style and personal preference, adding some sort of sleeve to a sleeveless gown or an overskirt to a fitted gown will add extra sophistication and warmth to your look without sacrificing style!
Detachable sleeves are especially favorable for winter brides having an outdoor winter wedding ceremony in the cold and indoor reception in the heat, where detachable sleeves can be removed. You may be surprised at how many options there are when it comes to overskirts and sleeves for wedding dresses, so be sure to ask your bridal stylist for available add-ons that will work with your gown. Lines such as Martina Liana and Martina Liana Luxe have a great variety of customizations and add-ons available.
Winter Bridal Accessories
Bridal looks are fully completed with accessories and jewelry! First and foremost, always opt for pieces that make you feel comfortable and confident. From there, consider your wedding dress style when choosing any piece of jewelry – you want to keep in mind the special features of your dress to ensure your jewelry complements it and not overpowers it.
For a bridal gown with a V-neck, a pendant or drop necklace will look stunning. On the other hand, a statement necklace will work better with a strapless and sweetheart neckline since there is not much fabric along the collarbone. Snowflake-inspired designs, such as earrings and bracelets are also a great option to infuse the season into your look. In addition to your bridal jewelry, outdoor weddings are a great excuse to accessorize with a fashion-forward overskirt, shawls or gloves to complete your winter bridal look!
