What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

By Alice Aylett Roberts

Planning what to wear for weddings can be a bit stressful at the best of times. Unless the marriage ends in a sticky divorce, then those wedding photos last forever, so you'll probably want to look your best, yes?

But, when you throw in the always unpredictable British weather, this delicate operation can be truly daunting. Read our winter wedding fashion guide to banish your frocking woes. Just don't try wearing them all at once.

This chic beaded bag will inject some glitz and glamour to even the plainest ensemble. Box clutches are ideal wedding accessories with room enough for your phone and camera, but small enough not to inhibit your signature dance moves.

Chilly weather means a high likelihood of goose pimples. Keep your legs cosy and coordinated with some pretty hosiery like these classy fishnets (yes, such a thing exists!) from Wolford.

Sturdy shoes

Sensible shoes don't mean they have to look like something your arthritic Gran would wear. These sturdy but chic heels will keep you on your feet till the open bar runs dry and ensure you don't take an undignified tumble.

A dress with sleeves

A skimpy sleeveless dress or strappy number is rarely going to see you safely through our glacial winter weather, not matter how warm-hearted the festivities make you feel. This dress with sleeves at House of Fraser also ticks the lace trend nicely.

A warm coat

The quickest way to ruin a carefully planned wedding outfit is to throw an old coat over your lovely new frock and hope that it will stop raining long enough to actually take it off. With this snazzy pink fur coat from Miss Selfridge you can wrap up warm and stay stylish.
