At Flossy & Willow, we LOVE the fact that the clocks are changing. A winter wedding always makes us happy and with November just around the corner, we can start talking about Christmas! Today, we’re sharing some great wedding ideas for longer nights so that we can all embrace winter with open arms.
Let’s start with wedding dresses because we don’t want to see any brides being their own ‘something blue’! Feeling cold is not what you want on your big day so for a winter wedding, choose your gown carefully.
We’re totally hooked on dresses with long sleeves right now and lace sleeves couldn’t be prettier. Some of our favourite designers include long sleeve gowns and tops in their collections so you can be snug and stylish. Take a look at the latest gowns from Catherine Deane and Willowby by Watters – they could have been designed with winter weddings in mind.
Keep it cosy…
Speaking about staying warm on your wedding day, how considering a wrap or shrug? You could opt for a feather bolero or a baby soft cardigan and we love seeing brides wearing coloured or sparkly numbers for that party season look. You could also indulge with velvet, leather or a chunky Christmas knit! We’ve got a great selection of cover-ups at Flossy & Willow so you can trial your look at your appointment.
If you’re going to be outside for any part of your winter wedding, don’t forget your feet! We’re not suggesting that you ditch the pretty heels for sensible boots but remember that soft, muddy ground is no friend of designer shoes. Instead, opt for shoes with a block heel and maybe ditch delicate fabrics such as suede. Of course, the best option is to have two pairs – a sensible pair AND the dream heels you’ve always wanted. It’s a green light for the Choos right there!
We can’t end this look at wedding ideas for longer nights without mentioning lingerie! Gorgeous nightwear is an absolute must and a beautiful robe or kimono makes photos on the morning of your wedding all the better. Our favourite label has to be the amazing Violet & Wren. Their botanical inspired prints are downright dreamy and utterly perfect for honeymoons too…
