3/4 sleeves

Choose a dress with sleeves just under the elbow. Not only will this keep you relatively warm, it also looks very sophisticated for night-time wedding.

Long silhouette

A floor-length gown is perfect for winter since you can wear close-toed shoes, and keep your feet and pins warm! If this idea seems rather matronly, choose an off-the-shoulder style to keep it modern and fresh.

Anything with sheer sleeves or panels is great for a winter wedding dress since it won’t feel too warm or constricting once you’re inside. It gives the perfect amount of warmth without feeling too over-heated.

Multiple layers

A dress with an abundance of layers is bound to be a good thing if the weather is cold and dreary. They’re bound to keep you warm without requiring any additional accessories such as a shawl or pashmina.
