Choosing a bridal dress for a Sydney winter weddingJanuary 7, 2019
It’s important to choose a bridal gown that matches in with the seasons, but, in winter, you want to select a dress that won’t have you shivering through the night because your dress isn’t keeping you warm.
How to choose the perfect winter dress
Add some drama
A splash of colour always works well, but not all brides want to add colour to their bridal gowns, but you can still add some drama. Why not use lace overexposed skin? The Provonias Draga from Bridal Secrets is a perfect example, with its full Mikado skirt and train, full lace sleeves that sweep into a low sweetheart bodice while the back of the gown has buttons from the top of the neck to the end of the train. This stunning ballgown has lace sleeves that will help keep you warm, while still looking feminine and dramatic.
if you don’t want to cover yourself completely you should consider using accessories to layer over your wedding dress while keeping you warm. A tailored biker style jacket looks cool, or a cape or stall, or a sequined jacket to add a touch of sparkle, any of these will keep you warm. You could always buy some nice long white gloves to keep your hands warm when you are outside.
The fabric you choose is important if your ceremony and reception are held inside and you are not going to be outside much you could use a light silk with lace. If you are going to be outside, you need a heavier silk or woven fabric to keep the wind out.
They can be dramatic or alluring and, they keep you warm. Bridal Secrets recommend the Melrose by Sottero and Midgley, with beautiful lace appliques and long illusion sleeves, the dress has a gorgeous fitted bodice with a scalloped hemline of crosshatch tulle, which flows over the jersey fit and flare silhouette. This is a dramatic, yet romantic design, complete with illusion sweetheart neckline, a sweeping train and a double illusion keyhole back.
In winter you can choose an enclosed shoe, rather than strappy sandals, depending on your dress, and the style of bride you are, you can also opt for ankle length boots to help keep your feet toasty warm. Enclosed shoes or boots also allow you to choose a shoe that may be more comfortable than strappy high heels.
Armed with these tips, you will be able to find the perfect winter wedding gown that suits your wedding theme, your body shape, and most importantly keeps you warmer, while still looking like the stunning bride you are. The last thing you want to do is catch cold on your wedding day.
