Winter Wedding Guest Outfit

What to wear to a winter wedding as a guest featuring Coast dressHaving only ever attended spring/summer weddings up until now, I'm super excited to be attending a couple of winter weddings this year!  I've probably watched too many romantic Christmas films, but there definitely seems to be something magical about a winter wedding concept.  So, fast forward to mid-winter and you'll most likely be wanting to cover your arms to avoid the sound of your chattering teeth echoing through the venue.  However, with the next month or so in mind (once winter kicks in), what could you wear as a guest to a winter wedding?

What to wear as a guest to a winter wedding

Dress - Coast (similar styles in their current sale)

Shawl - Vintage

Bag - Ralph Lauren

Colourful and floral winter wedding guest outfit
With weddings being such a happy occasion, the idea of writing off colour completely doesn't sit well with me!  Instead I've reached for this pretty number by Coast, but then paired it with all-black accessories to be in fitting with the season.  The addition of faux fur, ostrich feather or pretty much any other soft outerwear then makes for a quick and chic way of updating an otherwise chilly look to the winter celebration.  Finishing touches?  Think pared-down fascinators, dark hosiery and a berry lip.  Oh, and a pair of skyscraper heels can't hurt!

Winter weddings have given me yet another reason to adore the season and all that comes with it.  It's so exciting seeing images pop up on my feed of Christmas lights starting to be turned on, and weather reports of upcoming snow (here's hoping)!  I hope my tips have given you some food for thought - and if you've been to a winter wedding (church or otherwise), I'd love to hear what you wore?!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  2. I love this look, Gabrielle! Pink and black is such a great colour combination, and the floral pattern is so pretty. My brother got married in December, and I remember that I was very glad that I had a jacket to keep me warm. Your faux fur shawl is a great idea because it's practical and also looks very luxurious! Lovely photos :) Angharad x

  10. The idea of a winter wedding sounds really romantic indeed, and different from the usual weddings. Planning an outfit for this kind of events can be quite a challenge but you definitely nailed it with this gorgeous look. The dress is a dream and the accessories are exquisite! Not to mention those high heels *.* And omg, the first picture is literally -literally, perfect.

  17. Even though spring/summer weddings are more popular, I really like the colours in autumn/winter weddings. You have wider colour selection :) Your outfit is perfect for a a/w wedding, the colours and the accessories you picked definitely completes the outfit. I'd probably go for similar colours with faux fur. You truly look beautiful in that outfit x

  39. I have never been to a winter wedding, but if I did, I would definitely take your suggestions. I love the idea of a more lively-colored dress with dark hosiery and heels. The faux fur stole is also perfect! Unfortunately, fascinators are not very common in the U.S. - I do love them. XO

  46. Like you I've watched too many romantic christmas movies (I need my dose of them every Christmas). I've never attend a winter wedding but I'm sure it should interesting. You elegantly (as usual) nailed the guest winter wedding look! You're such an elegant and classy young woman. This is something you can't get, you're born with it or not.
    Love this colourful dress and this lovely shawl!

    You really do look stunning and I'm quite thankful that I may have helped inspire this post ;) (ten days! ten days! eeek!......)
