Nothing beats the enchanting beauty of a winter wedding. Gorgeous icy hues, festive touches, twinkling details – winter weddings and brides alike can look utterly dreamy. And if you’re all about that winter magic spark, we’ve got you covered. From the perfect blooms to the chicest way to stay cosy and warm, here are our five must-have accessories for the brides of the cold season.
Nothing is more in-tune with the icy winter hues than crisp white, immaculate bling. For a timelessly elegant look that captures the whimsy of the season, opt for pearl jewellery for your Big Day. If you’re planning a bohemian affair complete with a romantic, flowy bridal dress, go for ‘ropes and ropes of pearls’, the Coco Chanel way. Whether you choose a perfectly coordinated pearl set, a beautiful pearl necklace featuring off-round, Baroque gems of the sea or a statement pair of dangly earrings, pearls manage to perfectly convey that special charm of the festive season.
Taking the cosy-chic approach on your winter wedding day is definitely the right call. And yes, that means that your perfect strapless dress is in dire need of another layer – a cosy, warm, fluffy layer. Shawls, collars, scarves and cropped jackets are all welcomed to be part of your bridal arsenal, especially if they come in fluffy (faux) fur. Not only are fur shawls the perfect way to stay warm without sacrificing on fabulousness, but they are an opportunity to add an extra touch of dazzle to the look with a vintage brooch pinned on the shoulder.
Unapologetically romantic, lace gloves are the kind of statement piece with the power to transform your bridal look – not to mention that they make any type of gown instantly more winter-appropriate. Upgrade the fairy-tale appeal of your Big Day with a pair of delicate white gloves that adds whimsical points to your winter-magic celebration. After all, these are the kind of bridal accessories that call for a fab photo-op. Whether you keep it simple with the gown and go all out on accessories or opt for a mish-mash of laces, textures and patterns, the choice is yours.
Whether you opt for a perfectly-appropriate snowflake hairpin or simply choose to incorporate the twinkling glimmer of the cold season into your bridal attire, you simply can’t go wrong when taking the sparkly route. Choose a large, statement hair piece if you’re going with a half-updo – and for a side updo, go for individual pins featuring glittering crystals, white pearls and crisp white florals. For a more festive approach with an added pop of colour, incorporate holly red berries into your hair game, whether opting for dainty pins or a boho-inspired bridal halo.
With their fluffy cloud-like look and snug appeal, cotton flowers make the perfect winter blooms. The classic combo of white and green, plus the added natural wood of the branches makes the ideal winter wedding bouquet. For extra festive vibes, incorporate pine tree branches, cones (with or without the optional ice coating) or red holly berries in your bridal bouquet for a look that carries a decidedly celebratory charm.
