The "wedding boom" is traditionally in the warm season. Perhaps that is why wedding collections come out once a year - in the spring - and consist mainly of light low-necked dresses that expose the back and chest, often without sleeves. Chiffon, satin, satin, lace - the fabrics most often used in wedding dresses - are very beautiful, look, of course, spectacular, but they are not able to warm at least a little. What to do if winter is in the yard, but you really want to get married? The most important thing is to identify the main difficulties associated with the time of the year, and outline a plan for overcoming them. I warn you right away that being a bride in winter is not so easy
The main problem is related to the appearance of the bride. How to dress so as to look tender and touching, as befits a bride, and at the same time not to catch a cold? Remember, drinking alcohol regularly is not an option: a drunken bride is, as the unforgettable donkey Eeyore would say, a “heartbreaking sight”. I don’t want to refuse professional photography against the background of my native city: very beautiful photos are obtained. Alas, not all outerwear is combined with a traditional magnificent wedding dress. Most sheepskin coats and fur coats, even very expensive ones, turn the bride into a tastelessly dressed lady. It will be better if, instead of a fur coat, you purchase or rent a short fur coat: it will be fastened even on an outfit with a very magnificent skirt. Here are just the drape of swan fluff, offered in bridal fashion salons in winter will not warm as it should, so you have to spend money on a short light coat, even if this waste can not be called practical. Thus, the choice of a winter wedding dress is a whole problem.
It will be useful to choose a dress with sleeves and a stand-up collar. If the above items are made of lace, consider that they are not. In any case, they will definitely not become an obstacle for winter frosts and thorny winds. Contrary to common sense, have you got the most open dress? Look for a suitable cardigan or blouse so as not to put a coat on bare hands: believe me, the feeling is not pleasant.
The best option for a bride celebrating a wedding in winter is a two-piece dress - a set of a wedding dress and coat. Both parts of the kit are sewn from the same fabric, and then fit perfectly together. During a photo shoot in nature, the coat should be tightly fastened, but in a cafe or restaurant it can be effectively thrown into the arms of the groom. The only thing to take care of is a suitable scarf or voluminous neck scarf.
Another mistake that brides often make in the autumn-winter period is dark shoes. Of course, light boots are definitely an impractical purchase. After the wedding, you will dress them a couple of times, no more. Alas, you will have to allocate funds for this purchase. Judge for yourself: both during a walk and during the festival you will have to raise the hem of your dress more than once or twice (don’t lift yourself more expensive - the bottom will be hopelessly ruined by salt and dirt) and show your shoes. So it makes sense to ask the consultant of the salon where you ordered the dress, whether they sell at the same time and the appropriate boots. As practice shows, they sell or help find. It’s not a fact that shoes will cost cheaply, but the result will exceed all expectations: boots with a top made of shiny or translucent material will perfectly fit your look.
A radical solution to the problem of a suitable outfit: after the registry office, the bride changes her clothes and goes on a traditional walk in the winter city, and after the promenade again wears a wedding dress. Perhaps in the general photo the young one will be difficult to distinguish from an ordinary guest, but you will not overshadow your holiday with an unexpected cold or a common cold. Believe me, even when it comes to weddings, health is the most important thing. But imagine how unusual and touching the bride looks in winter, among the snow and snowstorms!
