If you’re a bride-to-be wondering if you can wear a sleeveless or strapless gown for your winter wedding or fall wedding, we’re here to help. Yes, the weather isn’t suited to baring arms unless you live somewhere down south. But that’s why bridal caps, bridal stoles and wraps, and bridal jackets were created! And then there are muffs! Muffs have to be the chicest way to keep your hands toasty. Yes, a nice pair of gloves, be it leather, or lace, or up-to-your-elbows is pretty chic, but a muff says Jackie O. AND Kate Moss. They’re elegant yet unexpected, so why not add one on the day you’re going to dress above and beyond? Sleeveless wedding gowns and strapless wedding dresses are still the norm, even with all manner of beautiful sleeved wedding gown options out there.
So, what’s the short answer to the question of sleeveless in winter?
Absolutely! Today’s most popular wedding gown styles include strapless and sleeveless gowns that you can wear year round if you bundle up.
With the help of some easy-to-wear bridal wedding accessories, you can stay warm for your outdoor events, or photo ops without sacrificing that traditional wedding day look. You can add a faux fur wrap, bolero jacket, or chic muffs. We love this gorgeous vintage fur stole from StyleMePretty.com:
The best part? Cold weather bridal accessories can add additional drama to your wedding photos. First, it’s jacket on and then jacket off…or jacket flowing in the wind. Or think of a gorgeous fur or faux fur stole draped over your bare shoulders. Then there are the muffs to keep your hands toasty.
Looks beautiful, right? And cozy, too! As the bride, you don’t want to freeze…no matter the weather.
