The winter months can be a great time to hold a wedding; however, it can be hard for guests to find the perfect outfit. You will need to find an outfit that suits your personal taste, budget and the nature of the occasion. Here are some things to think about if you are invited to a winter wedding.
According to Wedding Ideas, the cost of a winter wedding is likely to be far less than during the popular summer wedding season. If the bride and groom are lucky, they might even end up with a beautiful snowy backdrop for their wedding photos.
Winter wedding-wear often includes thick, heavy and sumptuous fabrics such as velvet and lace. Long-sleeved dresses are often popular at this time of year for obvious reasons. Depending on the formality of the event, you can even opt for floor length gowns, cocktail dresses or a smart party dress. As this is a festive time of year, you are likely to find plenty of garments with sparkly embellishments. While sequins and jewels are OK in moderation, try to resist the urge of going into full sparkle mode or you might upstage the bride!
Colour-wise, you will be looking at wedding guest dresses from stockists such as https://www.axparis.com/collections/wedding-guest-dresses in deep, dark hues, such as navy and black. You won’t get away with these colours in the warmer months, so embrace them now! Burgundy reds and rich, dark greens can also add to the festive appeal.
For men, a full suit is entirely appropriate at this time of year. Tweed can be a great choice – thick, versatile and smart, the tweed effect comes in a range of subtleties and can work just as well on a pinstripe-type suit as on a farmer’s jacket replica! It is particularly ideal for a rustic barn wedding. Velvet and wool suits are a little more niche but will certainly pack a punch.
In summer, there is no end to the possibilities when it comes to footwear. Heels, sandals and even embellished flip flops are all fair game when the weather is fine. In winter, you might be battling against the elements, so suitable footwear is a must. For women, a heeled boot always goes well with tights, while men can’t go wrong with a tan brogue.
