Introduction:The weather outside may be frightful, but your winter wedding will be delightful thanks to the following bridal helpers.
Strapless bridal gowns are trendy, but you'll look and feel like a sensuous snow queen in a long-sleeved wedding dress. Especially gorgeous are off-the-shoulder fur trimmed bridal gowns, which accentuate your elegant neckline.
Also, trending are fabric combinations in silk, lace and chiffon, with bling-embellished bodices of pearls or crystals. The Victorian wedding dress is popular this winter. And, ruffles are back.
If you positively would die unless you go strapless, invest in a bridal cape of velvet or faux fur to wear outdoors. Matching or not-matching with your wedding dress is of no matter. It does matter that you keep toasty so a nasty cold doesn't grab you. Once at the venue, donning a pretty pair of opera-length gloves will keep you warm during the ceremony.
Bridal Helper: Don't forget to cover your head while you are in route. A cute fur hat is perfect.
Your choice of bridal shoes has a significant impact on your wedding day comfort. Be mindful, you will walk and dance a lot and the entire day could be wrecked if you develop blisters or sore feet.
But --- finally, finally designers and brides are meeting in a comfy, yet flattering space. Those ridiculously high-high heels are out and you can expect to find bridal ballet slippers, platforms, peep-toe pumps, slingbacks and open toed pumps that are the epitome of comfort and style.
Bridal Helper: Take your wedding gown when trying on shoes.
Traveling to and from the wedding venue and reception, keep your tootsies toasty in a pair of low-heeled, white boots.
Today's pendulum has swung back toward the traditional wedding veil. Passé are the flowers, feathers and bare bridal heads of seasons past. You may opt for a short or long veil. Many brides are choosing the laced-edge veil or mantilla.
While you gotta love lace edging, you may not love the dear price. Be mindful, the longer veils require more lace and translate to more money used from your wedding budget. The cathedral length, raw-edged wedding veil is the most budget-friendly.
Bridal Helper: Choose your wedding gown first and decide on your hairstyle before selecting the wedding veil.
Your bridal jewels are the last stop along the long road of decision making. Ultimately, wedding jewelry should be uniquely you.
Pearls are classic and timeless and complement the silvery white winter wedding theme. Fiery crystals in clear or white hues are another great option. Or, you could combine crystals and pearls.
Simply look at the winter pallet from snowflakes to ice cycles to guide your decision on color and style of your bridal jewels.
Bridal Helper: If you own a piece of signature jewelry, problem solved.
Believe it or not, "destination weddings" are totally sizzling this season. Think about this: it's economical to elope and with a little effort, you can get married where you honeymoon.
Eloping puts the focus of your wedding day where it should be - on you and your husband-to-be. It becomes less about the dress and all about the marriage. You will be less stressed, when relieved of planning and decision making.
Later on, you could throw a big bash for family and friends for a small fraction of what you would have paid for your wedding dress alone. True, eloping isn't for everyone, but it is a bridal helper worthy of consideration!
Bridal Helper: Guys rarely resonate with the huge wedding scene. An elopement might just be a win/win experience for all.
