What does a beautiful winter bride make? While it may be too cold and dark to have the ceremony outside (brrrrr!), Fabienne Slater of Elian Concept Weddings & Events says winter brides should embrace the magic of the season and work with the elements to bring elegance to indoor events.

So what can brides to do brighten up and prettify their winter weddings?

Lace it up!

“Lace is such a fashion-forward theme. Look for lace details on stationery then pair with lace napkin rings, lace gloves and a Kate Middleton-style lace-trimmed dress. You can also find lace dresses for your bridesmaids on the high street.”

Wear coloured shoes
“Statement shoes work well with a winter setting. A bright colour pop of red, pink or purple will add personality to your outfit.”

Be a winter princess with some dazzling head jewellery
“You can add sparkle to your winter wedding with a jewelled headband. Perfect for long hair, set in glamorous waves.”

Stay warm and luxurious in faux fur and feather wraps
“Keep warm outdoors with faux fur or feather wraps, or angora cashmere boleros. Wonderful Wraps have some gorgeous, dramatic cover-ups and capes.”

Keep it all white as snow
“A white winter theme is classic and enduring – and also easy to match. Bouquets of white roses, crisp white table linen and snow-white chair covers will look effortlessly elegant.”
