Since posting the “December Wedding, Should You or Shouldn’t You” post (see below) I have been seeing so many posts on holiday wedding ideas that I had to write another blog. And yes, this one is in support of the “do” for December/Holiday weddings! The fashion alone makes it worth the risks you take by having a winter wedding…I have been obsessing over the fur wrap from the previous post ever since I posted it!
And along with a stunning white wrap for a bride, a December/Holiday wedding almost insists on a gown that will have wintery traits; think snowflake embellishments, mesh details, and hints of glimmer. The illusion neckline that is popular right now fits right in with this kind of detailing; check out the gowns and necklines below. How stunning would these look next to holiday lights?
The fun you can have with bridesmaids gowns and accessories is endless as well. Think you have to stick with red or green accents when having a December wedding? Think again! This photo shows a deep icy blue that is sophisticated yet still depicts December. Accented by a beautiful (and functional!) fur wrap and complimented with pure white bouquets, you have a bridesmaids ensemble that is simple yet stunning:
Top it off with a pine needle boutonniere and you have your holiday touch:
A wedding on or close to New Years can be a ton of fun to accessorize as well. I LOVE the look of these silver bridesmaids dresses (and the age old line of ‘you’ll wear it again!’ is actually true for a gown like this!):
Remember, have fun, enjoy the process, and no matter what happens on your December wedding day, ENJOY the day! No weather issues or traffic jams can take away the meaning of the day…Happy Planning and Happy Holidays!
