While a wedding in the warmer summer months is always enticing due to the long, light days and warm temperatures (and unlikely chance of rain!), a winter snow wedding can also be beautiful and unique. What’s more exciting is the fantastic variety of accessories that a bride-to-be can incorporate into her wedding ensemble. It takes a brave bride to bear the winter elements, particularly if it’s in an outdoor ceremony, but there are a few things you can do to ensure that you’re feeling snug and comfortable on the big day.
The best way to protect against the harsh cold when you’re in the snow is by wrapping up your bare skin in a faux fur. With the popularity of the strapless wedding gown, if you do choose to wear one on your wedding day, but are hoping to wed outside in the snow, it’s a good idea to wrap up your shoulders with a little bit of fur for extra warmth and added luxury. The last thing you want is to be quivering down the aisle as you walk towards your future husband! Faux furs come in many different colours and styles and you’ll be sure to find one that suits the design of your dress.
Every snow princess needs some sparkly gems to doll up her bridal ensemble. Think icy diamonds, stark white pearls and dazzling embellishments. It’s a fun idea to pick jewellery pieces that may resemble snowflakes and icicles, like drop diamond earrings or a big statement necklace. This will add to the winter wonderland theme, while remaining elegant and classic.
Regardless of what times of the year you tie the knot, it’s always a good idea to choose flowers that are in season. So, for a winter snow wedding, make sure your bouquet reflects that season’s flowers, but still keep it within the theme and colour scheme of the day and attire. In keeping with the snow theme, think baby’s breath, lily of the valley, sweet William, magnolias and roses – all in whites and soft colour palettes. A bouquet of any of these flowers, or other winter bloomers, will tie in perfectly and look divine!
Stylish open-toed heels and strappy flats simply won’t do for a snow wedding, so it’s time to think about what you’re going to wear on your feet! Just because you’re getting hitched in the snow, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on stylish footwear, but just make sure that you have close-toed shoes – to avoid frozen toes and frostbite on your wedding day! There are plenty of gorgeous shoes available, so start shopping around until you find the perfect pair.
