The Bride and the Dress

Look for gowns made from organic fabrics. Instead of buying a white dress, you can find beautiful ivory dresses for winter that look fantastic with warm winter floral bouquets in shades of deep red and plum.


Don't feel obligated to wear a gown with long sleeves to avoid the elements. Although sleeved gowns are popular, you can still wear a slinky gown with little to no fabric around your arms. You can always wear a faux fur stole or wrap some cozy cashmere around your shoulders for that chilly photo op.

Winter wedding fashion is also a great chance to wear heavier, richer fabrics that would be far too heavy and stifling in the summertime. If you love ball gowns, winter is the best time to buy that full length wedding gown you've been dreaming of.

Woodland Whimsy

Look for nature inspired jewelry with sea glass, stones, driftwood, twigs and feathers. Many designers use recycled wire and other findings for an eco-friendly touch.


Classic White and Silver

A simple pearl necklace against recycled sterling silver is gorgeous. Caged wire wrapped pearls are a unique take on an old classic.


A winter wedding bouquet is not as limited in color, texture and variety as some may think. There are, in fact, many elements from nature that can be used to create a unique and beautiful bundle.

Pine cones as woodsy additions to bouquets look wonderful nestled among bright flowers. Velvet bows can brighten up a dark and dismal winter day! There are many ways to incorporate these into your bouquets or even tied to your bridesmaid's dresses or your flower girls tights or in her hair.

A seasonal option, juniper boughs are beautiful for a bouquet, as aisle runners or as a sprig displayed on your groom's boutonniere.
