- Summer & Fall might be popular wedding seasons, but what if you’ve received an invitation to a Winter Wedding? As the weather cools down, you’ll have to consider the venue, dress code & budget to find a perfect winter wedding guest outfit.
- I love more decadent fabrics in warm, jewel tones for the season. Rich velvet, sequin, sleek satin & bold prints are your friends in textures. Higher necklines, longer hems & puffy sleeves can offset the chill in the air.
- Below, I’ve rounded up 30 perfect winter wedding dresses for every style & budget. From stunning long-sleeve sequin mini dresses to lush billowing gowns, there is something for everyone on this list. Keep reading to get more tips & inspiration!

Winter Wedding Tip #2: To accessorize or not? The answer is always to accessorize! If you are wearing a single-tone dress, add silver or gold chain belts to cinch the waist.

Winter Wedding Tip #4: To re-wear or not? If you want to make a statement in a billowing gown or a printed maxi dress, by all means, please do.
