Guest Post :: Ideas For A Magical Winter Wedding Look

I kind of love how winter weddings are starting to gain momentum. December and January weddings have been some of my favorite to attend just because there is a different feel floating in the air and for some reason the decorations, dresses, tuxes, candle light, and decorations just seem a touch more elegant for some reason. Today Georgia Selih, journalist and author at highstylife.com, is guest posting and sharing a few tips on how to create a magical winter wedding look.
Ideas for a Magical Winter Wedding Look
Every wedding season comes with its own set of advantages. While summer weddings allow for dancing under the stars, outdoor ceremony and reception, breezy gowns and colorful cocktails, there is absolutely no denying that winter weddings possess a kind of elegant magic that you simply can’t achieve during summer. Winter allows you to go over the top, be as glamorous as you want without ever looking overdone and too much. The same applies to d├ęcor – winter is the perfect time to turn to rich dark hues such as navy, purple and even magenta as these will contribute to the overall elegance and elevated vibe. Now, you may think that winter poses certain restrictions when choosing your perfect wedding dress, but when one door closes another opens. You have way more options than you may think, so stay tuned and be dazzled with the abundance of choices that will grace you on your winter magic day.
The Grace Kelly
What bride wouldn’t want to look like Grace Kelly? The embodiment of high-style and unmatched elegance is something most brides-to-be strive for and if your idea of a perfect gown revolves around these notions, you won’t be able to resist the gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown. The gown features subtle beadwork, long sheer sleeves and a gorgeous crystal-embellished belt that will leave everyone in awe when you walk down the aisle. The veil is absolutely mandatory as it adds to the sophistication, and the sleeves, although sheer, will provide a surprising amount of warmth. A simple updo will complement this dress like nothing else, and keep the makeup simple – neutral eyes and a perfect burgundy shade for a pop of color. Add a touch of bronzer to bring warmth to the face, and keep everything else intact.
Straight out of a Fairytale
As little girls, we have always watched fairytales and wondered if we would ever get the chance to dress like princesses do. Well, if there is ever a time when you can allow yourself to break all the rules and be a princess, even just for a day, this is it. If you are this girl, then this Sareh Nouri gown will make the little girl inside jump for joy. The bodice features ¾ sleeves with golden embroidery that oozes luxury. The cleavage is just revealing enough, yet still modest, and the skirt is so gloriously poufy, that it’s worthy of a queen. Since the skirt is free of embellishments, make sure you get some Cinderella-like wedding shoesso instead of simple, go with bejeweled and ostentatious. In the spirit of golden glam, you could definitely go big in the makeup department. Play with warm golden and brown hues, bronzer and gorgeous golden highlighter. You could keep the lips neutral with just a nice peachy nude and a rich lip gloss. And since you have a bit of skin showing, old Hollywood waves would be the perfect hairdo choice.
Clean and Simple
For those brides who have a soft spot for simplicity and minimal elegance, a gown with a cap sleeve bodice and a simple A-line silhouette with zero details except the tiny amount of floral embroidery along the sleeves is just what the style doctor ordered. The simple belt emphasizes the waist perfectly, making this dress flattering for different body types. Still, as it is short-sleeved, you might want to have a faux-fur wrap or even a white coat close by, but luckily, there have never been more options for these details than now, so just take your pick. When it comes to hair and makeup, with a dress so minimal, you have plenty of wiggle room. You can go with a strong pop of color on the lips – bright plum of fuchsia and just a touch of plum on the cheeks for that winter flushed look. Keep the eyes neutral – pale rosy tones lashes. The hair would be perfect up, but not in a tight bun – a relaxed one with a few strands casually framing your face will give you the effortlessly gorgeous look that’s always in style.
