Ball Gowns

Style WG3979

Layers are a must for a wintery wedding day, consider a ball gown with endless yards of organza, lace, or tulle! Ball gowns with intricate lace and beading are perfect for a more traditional bridal look. For a more updated touch, try a sleek and unembellished ball gown for a modern and sophisticated bridal style! If the temp calls for even more cold weather, put on tights underneath your dress for added warmth (no one will be able to tell!).

Lace Wedding Dresses

Style MS251205

Mixing textures add warmth and depth to your winter wedding look! A gown with a combination of ornate lace and tonal beading mimics the intricacy of a snowflake. You can opt for an all-over lace dress or one with perfectly placed lace touches.

Long Sleeves

Style SWG820

A gorgeous gown with lace-adorned long sleeves will keep your arms from feeling chilly on the big day. No matter what silhouette you choose, long sleeves are the perfect way to show off more lace or beaded detail on your gown! Plus, an illusion fabric makes this coverage elegant and adds another dimension to your look.

Subtle Hues

Blush tones and champagne hues are a subtle alternative to a traditional white gown that will stand out against a snowy backdrop. Soft shades add an ultra-romantic and whimsical touch to your wintery wedding. Consider these off-white tones when finding your winter wedding dress.

Winter Bridesmaid Dresses
