Bridesmaid dress ideas for a winter wedding


It would seem that the preparations for a winter wedding should go exactly the same way as the one happening during any other season. Obviously, to some extent that is true. However, when it comes to the outfits it is not. Especially when considering the outfit for a maid of honour. There is a number of factors that have to be taken into consideration when choosing clothes for her or else you risk destroying the visual aspect of your wedding. Therefore, read about these few things you should take into consideration when choosing a winter version of your maid's attire.


First of all, remember that a dress by no means grants enough protection from wind and cold. That is why she will have to wear additional pieces of clothing. Do not believe that indoors, for example in a church, it will be warm enough to make a dress only suffice. Within cold church's walls it can be even colder than outside. Therefore, just like a bride, her maid has to wear a fur coat. Obviously, it does not have to be real fur, artificial one will suffice. The important thing to remember is to make sure that the coat of a bride and the one of her maid are different. Otherwise, it would cause a confusion as to who is the most important person at that ceremony. Moreover, it is also a good idea for a maid to wear opera gloves. They will fit the occasion and protect her hands from cold at the same time. The only thing that you cannot do anything about are her shoes. They have to be light stilettos and it would be unfashionable to replace them with warmer boots.


As to the colours acceptable there is only one, simple rule concerning winter weddings: a color of a maid's gown and fur coat has to be cold. A cold colour will perfectly reflect the aura and the weather which will certainly contribute to the visual harmony. If she would wear, for example, a red dress, then it would create a sharp contrast between what is happening inside the church and outside of it. Furthermore, remember that a bridesmaid dress has to emphasize the features of the one of a bride. Therefore, you cannot pick any random, cold colour. Provided that a bridal gown is white one of the best choices for a maid is to wear a bright blue dress. In this way, it will not only match the weather but also the dress of a young bride. Other viable choices are emerald green, deep blue, and silver. All of them will make your bridesmaid look fabulously. You may even experiment with connecting two different colors, for example, a blue dress and a silver fur coat.


To sum things up, when it comes to winter weddings you simply cannot escape from warmer clothes. Many brides tried avoiding warm clothes for the sake of better looks which usually ended up in catching a flu. Besides, who said that the looks have to suffer due to winter clothes at all.
