If you’re saying your, ‘I Dos’ in the depths of winter, you don’t have to sacrifice your style just because it’s a little chilly outside. There are elegant ways of adding a little warmth to your ensemble and here are some breathtaking examples…
The Long Sleeve
The long sleeve offers many advantages for a winter bride in that it gives you a layer of warmth in a cold chapel, or shields your arms from the elements as you run from your car to your reception venue. Long sleeved wedding gowns can also discreetly cover up arms if you’re a tad self-conscious – we want confident brides on the big day! Most importantly, the long sleeve encapsulates a regal grace like no other design; remember how stunning Kate Middleton looked in her long sleeved Alexander McQueen dress by Sarah Burton?
The Three Quarter Length Sleeve
The three quarter length sleeve presents a compromise between the long sleeve and the short sleeve and boy does it make all the right statements – it’s classic, timeless and still covers up the upper arms as you step out on your special day.
The High Neck
A high necked gown can cut a classic shape on any bride and adds an element of sophistication to any bridal look and it has been known to elongate your body and flatter your silhouette in photographs. If it’s good enough for Kim Kardashian, it’s good enough for you.
BEAUTIFUL WITH BOTH – THE HIGH NECK AND LONG SLEEVES
When you just can’t decide on which winter bridal style to choose, why not opt for both? High neck gowns with sleeves are classy, different and will help keep those goosebumps at bay of the temperature hits rock bottom.
