In terms of style and design, winter weddings tend to be elegant and sophisticated, but don't be afraid to play with cute, cozy details so the cold doesn't reach your guests. For the bride, we love pairing boots, faux fur or even a leather jacket with your gown to keep warm and add some fun to your look. For the groom, a velvet jacket lends itself to a classic English look (think James Bond) and a tailored coat for outdoor portraits is the perfect finishing touch. Since a groom's style is extremely important for a complementing the bride, Central PA Tuxedo offers tailored suits, which are a fantastic investment for the groom.
The gowns in this feature are from Lilla's Bridal Boutique and as you'll see, layers are key for the winter brides! In order to stay warm as needed, consider different looks throughout your day. Lace jackets over a strapless gown provide an extra layer for you that enhances your overall look but is removable. So, for the ceremony, consider that style with your hair down, under a mantilla veil and pair that with classic, nude makeup. For the reception, remove your lace jacket, put your hair up and add more dramatic makeup. This will free you to warm yourself by dancing the night away!
