Winter 2014 Wedding Trends: Dresses
Be the belle of the ball, and the most stylish of them all on your wedding day with this guide to winter wedding dresses for 2014.
The winter season is well indeed upon us, and if you are planning a winter wedding it may start dawning on you that you are going to be a bit cold in your fabulous strapless number. But you still want to be on-trend, as one of the best-dressed brides of the year.
So how do you keep warm on your wedding day while still looking wonderful? Here are a few winter 2014 wedding trends to inspire you:
Rebel Belle Bride
Who says you have to wear white and be elegant on your big day? Shake things up a bit with an off-white or pearly coloured dress, with plenty of free-floating tulle and satin sheen. In a dress like this you won’t only stand out from the guests, but all the other brides this winter, as a real style risk-taker.

When someone suggests a pink wedding dress it is easy to have images of Katie Price and her pink meringue from her wedding to Peter Andre. But trust us, you can have an alternative dress and still look every bit a stylish bride. In fact, pink dresses are a huge hit for winter weddings this year. Vera Wang designs saw flashes of bold and hot pink whereas Monique Lhuillier opted for more dusky hues. However daring you are, we’re sure a pink dress would make you look like a princess on your big day.

If you want to feel sexy and glamorous on your wedding day, but don’t want to reveal too much, you could try a peek-a-boo back dress or a low v-neck. This way you’re showing a little flesh, but will still look elegant and feminine.

You can still be sexy and covered up. You’ll also be a lot warmer, especially if you’re planning a date with a marquee. Whether you wear a shawl, stole, wrap, bolero or coat, opt for a cover up in the same shade as your dress. But don’t forget a little sparkle!

As Light as a Feather
If you are not one for bling, but still want something a little extravagant with your dress, think about feathers. They have such a dramatic effect and almost look like flourishes of snow. Plus, there’s something fun about a feathered wedding dress!

We all know that a red rose is one of the most romantic flowers. And since there are flowers at your wedding, why not carry the theme across and into your dress.
Flower motifs, appliques and adornments will create a 3D floral display on your dress, so it is unique from any other wedding gown on the market. We love the idea of cascading rose petals on a tulle skirt.

Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeves
Whether you opt for an unusual colour, a peek-a-boo back or feathers, keep yourself warm and bang on trend with a sleeved dress. Long sleeves have been in style ever since the royal wedding of Kate and Will. And this trend sees no sign of slowing, especially with the UK’s unpredictable weather.We think full length or three-quartered lace sleeves are the perfect addition for any modest bride.\r\n
