Winter weddings can be magical, but figuring out what to wear can be a challenge. In this style guide post, we'll provide you with advice on how to style a formal dress for a winter wedding, from choosing the right fabric to accessorising for the colder weather. Let's get started!

1. Choose the Right Fabric

Winter weddings call for warmer fabrics, so opt for dresses in velvet, satin, or thick crepe. These fabrics will not only keep you warm but also add an extra touch of elegance to your outfit.

Layering is key when it comes to styling a formal dress for a winter wedding. You can add a fur stole or a jacket to your dress for added warmth and style. These accessories also add an extra element of glamour to your look.

4. Consider Your Footwear

When it comes to footwear, you'll want to choose something that not only looks good but also keeps your feet warm. Consider wearing closed-toe heels or even ankle boots with your dress.

5. Choose a Bold Lip Colour

A bold lip colour can add some colour and warmth to your overall look. Opt for red or a deep berry shade to complement your winter wedding outfit.
