There is something magical about a winter wedding. The bleak landscapes, the cosy atmosphere, and the warm vibes all come together to create a truly enchanting setting for saying “I do.” And of course, one of the most important elements of any wedding, no matter what the season, is the bride’s wedding dress.

Winter wedding dresses are a special category in themselves, as they need to strike the perfect balance between style and functionality. The dress should make the bride look beautiful and keep her warm and comfortable during the chilly weather.

If you are planning a winter wedding and still haven’t found your dream wedding dress, we have some advice and examples to help you make the right choice.

Advice for Choosing Your Winter Wedding Dress

Here is some advice to consider when selecting a winter wedding dress:


The material of your dress is what will keep you warm. Winter wedding dress fabrics can include:

When trying on dresses, pay attention to how the material feels against your skin and how it will hold up in colder weather.


Brides love winter wedding dresses with sleeves as they provide both style and warmth.

Some wedding dresses come with sleeves, while others offer the option to add detachable ones. Customisations like adding detachable sleeves are always possible with our in-house alterations teams. This gives you the flexibility to wear sleeves for your ceremony and portraits but remove them for dancing at the reception.

The choice will depend on your personal preference and the style of your dress. 


This is a personal preference, but for extra warmth (especially as the winter night creeps in), consider wearing undergarments. The undergarments you choose can also provide additional shaping and support for your dress.

Some great undergarment options include:

Be sure to try on the undergarments with your dress to ensure they don’t influence the fit or silhouette. 


Accessories are a great way to add some extra warmth and style to your winter wedding dress. Popular winter wedding accessories include:

Just be sure to choose accessories that complement your dress and don’t overwhelm it. 


Regarding winter wedding shoes, comfort and practicality should be top priorities. 

Opt for closed-toe wedding shoes to keep your feet warm, and consider adding non-slip soles for slippery conditions. If you’re feeling brave, you can also opt for cute winter boots! Just make sure they fit well with your dress length and style.
