The search for winter wedding dresses is officially on, as we edge out of summer and into the cooler months. Luckily, there’s nothing more romantic than the idea of a winter wedding. Watching a couple say their vows at a cosy wedding venue surrounded by crisp white snow (fingers crossed)? Sign me up. The only problem? What on earth to wear?
Enter: the best winter wedding guest dresses. A far stretch from your summer wedding guest dress, and probably even your autumn wedding guest dress, a winter wedding guest dress needs to be something that’ll keep you warm when you’re sat down (or taking endless pictures), cool while you’re dancing, and – of course – feeling uber glam.
Shopping for said winter wedding guest dress is no easy task; whether you want something with long sleeves, a midi dress covered in sequins, or a mini silhouette cast in lustrous velvet or satin, you still need to be mindful not to outshine the bride. If you’re not one for dresses you could always turn your attention to alternative wedding guest outfits (think trouser suits, midi skirts, strong blazers) or wedding guest jumpsuits.
