BHLDN’s stylists share their picks for the 5 best winter wedding fashion trends:

1) Wedding Gowns with Sleeves

The Kate Middleton-inspired long-sleeved wedding gown trend continues and whether you go for full length, cap sleeve or something in between, wedding gowns with sleeves offer extra coverage appropriate for the winter season.

2) Sparkly Column Wedding Gowns

A winter wedding is a great time to choose a gown with sparkle. A beaded column gown feels festive but still sophisticated.

Harlow Gown 

3) Glamorous Bridal Boleros

For extra warmth, add a pretty topper. We especially love the idea of a cozy cover up made of feathers or faux fur or a knit shrug with a touch of twinkle. A beaded capelet may not be as snug but it adds plenty of glitter and texture to your wedding attire.

4) Accessories with Serious Shine

Take cues from shimmering ice and snow and opt for crystal bridal jewelry and headpieces. Pile on vintage style diamante earrings, bold blingy bracelets, jeweled bridal headbands…this time of year, more is more.

5) Low Heel Wedding Shoes

The threat of inclement winter weather makes choosing wedding shoes with low heels or flats a must (unless you’re up for pairing snow boots with your wedding gown, which we’ve seen plenty of brides pull off!).
