Not everyone wants sunshine on their big day. Couples are now opting for that crisp, frosty morning with winter wonderland themes. Winter weddings have now become very popular. Unlike a summer wedding, we know the predictable weather and we can dress for such occasions, still looking stylish. Formal Wedding Attire You can go with either a cotton or wool suit in the winter season. It is a smart idea to stick to dark colours like navy or blacks. While a pastel colour shirt will do, I would recommend a classic white crisp shirt with a contrasting tie in dark bold colours. Informal/Casual Wedding Informal weddings can a little bit more relaxed, still in the darker tones, suit or blazer/trousers are acceptable. The opposite to a summer wedding, blazers should be dark in colour, dark tweed, grey, black matched with medium grey, navy or black trousers. For winter weddings a tie should always be worn, to add a little bit of formality. To add some warmth Depending on the temperature you will need to carry with you some form of overcoat, stylish Crombies, Macs and maybe even leather gloves to add a touch of elegance. Dress to impress – remember weddings last a long time. After much dancing and prancing make sure your clothes are not just clean, pressed and appropriate but that you show up in a suit that fits well and is comfortable enough to party in. The last thing you want to be remembered as the guy in a powder blue suit with a huge tear on his rear!
