What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

Hat Hire Ireland


Deciding what to wear to a wedding as a guest can be tricky at the best of times, let alone during the coldest season. There are so many factors to consider when it comes to winter wedding dresses for guests – the weather conditions, the location, and the formality of the event – just to name a few.

In order to make it a little easier on you, we’ve put together some handy hints – so read on for everything you need to know in order to style the best winter wedding outfits.


Take the weather into account

If you’re going to be in a freezing cold area, be sure to dress for warmth. There’s no way you could have a great time if you’re uncomfortable, so dress for the conditions. Depending on the day and location, a winter coat may be required, or else you may consider a shawl for lighter coverage.

Footwear is incredibly important for winter weddings – if there’s a chance of frost or snow, be sure to have sensible shoes so you’re not slipping and sliding your way around the venue.


Be sure to align your outfit to the formality of the wedding

As with a wedding in any season of the year, it’s important to keep to the dress code. Winter wedding outfits for guests that adhere to a black-tie standard may include floor-length dresses with love sleeves. For a less formal wedding, however, this would leave you looking too overdressed.


Find the right colour for the occasion

When it comes to dresses for winter weddings, as with any ensemble you put together, colour is everything. Often, couples will hint at the colour palette for their wedding in their wedding invitations. Referring to the invitation can be helpful if you’re not sure where to begin. 

As a general rule of thumb, you can’t really go wrong with the deeper or darker end of the spectrum – think hunter green, navy, brown, maroon, and of course, the old faithful, black. If you’re looking to step things up for a formal winter wedding outfit, try to add some gold, silver, and copper into the mix.
