Finding the perfect outfit for a winter wedding doesn't have to add extra stress - check out our edit of the best outfits.
Getting the right outfit for a wedding is always difficult, but what makes it harder is when a wedding falls during the winter months – which poses the question, if you can’t wear black, what do you wear to a winter wedding?
The trick is to look formal and dressed up – but not too much. After all, you don’t want to distract attention away from the wedding party. For summer weddings, pastels and light floral prints are perfect, but winter weddings require a change in approach. Think deeper, richer colours and darker florals as an alternative to black.
As for accessories, why not try mixing it up a bit with metallic accessories instead of black? Metallics are a top trend this year and there are some great pieces available on the high street right now.
This dress from JD Williams is perfect for nailing that winter wedding look – but remember you don’t have to wear a dress to a wedding! There are plenty of other alternatives on the high street, from midi skirts to trouser suits, that have a sense of occasion.
