Be Inspired By Winter Wedding Dress Trends

As the winter chill sets in, it is easy to see why it’s the perfect season for a romantic wedding. Whether you plan on exchanging vows under a canopy of twinkling fairy lights or celebrating your love in a candlelit reception, the possibilities are endless!

But what is a dreamy winter wedding without the perfect dress? Forget those summer worries about sweltering heat—winter opens up a world of luxurious fabrics, cosy cover-ups, and dramatic silhouettes. And who better to walk you through the world of winter wedding fashion than expert wedding dress designers in Brisbane? Let’s get stuck in!

Luxe Fabrics and Textures

Opt for fabrics that exude warmth and luxury:

  • Velvet: Rich, regal, and undeniably warm, velvet is a showstopper. The plush texture of velvet drapes beautifully and creates a flattering silhouette that works for different body types. For a dramatic look, consider a full velvet ballgown. If you prefer something more modern, a velvet sheath dress with a plunging neckline or a high slit adds a touch of sophistication.
  • Brocade: Its intricate woven patterns evoke timeless elegance and offer a unique textural element.  Brocade fabrics can vary in weight depending on the weave. A lighter brocade is perfect for a fitted bodice or a flowing skirt, while a heavier brocade is better suited for structured silhouettes.
  • Lace: A classic choice for winter weddings, lace can be layered for added warmth and romantic detail. French lace is delicate and floral, perfect for a romantic gown. Chantilly lace is lightweight with a scalloped edge, making it great for long-sleeved dresses.

Dress to Impress (and Stay Warm!)

If you are expecting a chilly evening, here are some options to stay cosy without sacrificing style:

  • Dramatic Sleeves: Bell sleeves, bishop sleeves, or even detachable puff sleeves add a touch of flair to complete the look.
  • Bridal Cape: A modern alternative to a veil, capes can be crafted from lace, tulle, or even faux fur for a dramatic flourish.
  • Faux Fur Stoles: Nothing says winter glamour quite like a faux fur stole draped over your shoulder.
  • Lace Wedding Wrap or Shawl: A delicate lace wrap or shawl gives you that vintage romance when draped over your shoulders, wrapped around your arms, or used as a veil for an ethereal touch.
  • Custom Bridal Coat or Jacket: Luxurious cashmere, wool, or velvet, tailored to your figure, featuring exquisite embellishments and details like a faux fur collar to keep you warm in style.
