Best wedding dresses for a winter wedding

Four wedding dresses for party season

When it comes to shopping for your winter wedding dress you should look for something that not only reflects your bridal style but is practical too. You don’t want to be at the altar shivering, so look for something that captures your taste but has the right touch to keep you winter-ready. It also means you’ll fit the season better, rather than being stood in a summer gown with a winter’s day as your background.

Illusion gown

Illusion gowns are perfect for brides who want it to look like they don’t have sleeves or a back to their gown, but still want to have the material there for support or for warmth. They come in a range of different shapes and styles, so illusion gowns aren’t limited to one certain cut of the gown. Instead, you can go for the shape you feel suits you the best and then look for an option that has the illusion top. If you find your dream dress but it doesn’t include the illusion you were hoping for, speak to your seamstress. Alterations will be available to transform the gown and add the illusion you were looking for.

Long sleeve and backless

For brides who want to have sleeves on their gown but don’t want too much of their skin covered up, backless dresses with long sleeves are perfect for a winter wedding. Much like illusion gowns, you can get this style in a range of different designs and materials. A minimalist bride might go for one in satin material, whereas lace would be perfect for someone looking for a more vintage style.


Nothing says party season quite like a sparkly gown, and why should it be any different with your wedding dress? If you’re looking to really stand out of the day and bring the shine to a winter’s day then getting a dress with embellishments is the way to go. You can also find various styles that have these embellishments on them, so once again you don’t have to settle for a particular cut of the gown to get this look. If you find the perfect dress but want to add more sparkles to it, this can be done during your alterations. 


Lace is a popular choice for brides all year round, but it looks particularly beautiful against the winter backdrop. The best part about lace is there are so many different patterns to choose from that you’re guaranteed to find one that suits your own unique style. You can even opt for some that have leaves and snowflakes in them to really match it to your winter wedding.

There are so many options for the perfect winter wedding dress that you won’t be struggling for choice when it comes to choosing your gown. The most important thing is to make sure you feel your best in it and find one that makes you feel truly special for your wedding day.
