What to wear to a winter wedding?

By Richa

Winter weddings are coming! Are you looking for a shawl or jacket to keep you and your ladies cosy on the big day? Well, let’s see if we can help you find some other chic styles to keep you snuggly this upcoming winter wedding season. Read on!

There’s a lot to consider when planning any wedding, but winter weddings come with their own unique challenges and considerations and the freezing cold temperature is most definitely one of those challenges. Staying warm at a winter wedding is essential, nobody likes to see red noses or blue hands plus goosebumps are not so romantic right? So picking the right few accessories to keep you cosy is the key. While winter weddings have a gorgeous charm of their own (the foggy nights and the nip in the air), they can be pretty brutal on the ladies who want to make a style statement. Brrrr… don’t worry pretty women you can still look your stylish best without freezing to death.

A winter wedding is a paradox in itself. While the chill of the air adds to the excitement of the big event, it also leaves one at wit’s end to figure out what to wear. One cannot, after all, hide those designer outfits and well-earned curves under bulky woolens. But who said you need to compromise on your overall look if it is wintry.

Choose heavy fabrics such as velvet, brocade or silk with detailed embroidery work. The very much in vogue embellished blouses in velvet and in other thick fabrics can definitely keep you warm while making heads turn for your glamorous avatar at the event. Velvet gives a royal look in colours like maroon, blue or purple shades and also the fabric gives some warmth to the body.

Apart from the fabrics and colours we also have everything else got covered (excuse the pun!) to help you beat the winter chill at your wedding. Here are few more styles that you can follow and become the total diva:

Royal jackets and Capes — “Elegant jackets and capes are one of the most fashionable ways to flaunt your style while keeping yourself warm during winters. Layer a smartly fitted jacket or cape over a saree or lehenga for statement look while keeping yourself cozy and comfortable in a chilled winter wedding,” says Gaurav and Nitesh from Studio AV. Capes are a draped version of the exemplary pashmina or a more contemporary take of the jacket. “While a winter wedding is approached with great anticipation, for women, the eternal question is: how do I keep warm without looking frumpy? And, without catching pneumonia at the end of the festivities! Fashionistas are increasingly turning to Indo-western silhouettes to cover up. Depending on your outfit, a long or a short cape can serve as a quick, go-to accessory that will also keep the doctor away! What’s more, capes offer flexibility as they can be either draped casually in an anti-fit style or worn more formally. Royal jackets work well too, but remember, these are more fitted and are generally used as an accent piece that completes as well as complements the outfit,” says Designer Madhu Jain.

Pockets in Lehengas or Suits: Gaurav and Nitesh from Studio AV opine “Pockets in lehenga or suit is a very unique and new development in the fashion world. It’s a great option for the brides to keep their hands warm during winter and it also comes in handy for keeping some valuables in them. Apart from providing a chic look to the traditional attire, it serves an important purpose as well.”

“Pockets add a contemporary element to your otherwise usual lehenga or suit. They provide some space for the bride to keep her cute love notes or her phone for that last-minute selfie. Stay hip and chic by trying appliqué brocade pockets (patch or inserted) to create a different look,” says Designer Amy Billimoria.

Trendy Gloves: Ok, you are thinking we have gone crazy, but trust us you can rock gloves with a saree and if you get stunning gloves custom made to your lehenga we actually think you would make an awesome style statement. “The ethnic gloves add a Victorian touch – bring out the royal princess in you and also keep your hands warm. The ethnic gloves with thread embroideries and sequined embellishments look dainty and feminine,” said Designer Shruti Sancheti.

Layering Up! “Layering is the best way to go for during winters. Give a twist to your simple trouser and top by layering a long jacket and a scarf with it. There are numerous possibilities to play with while layering. That’s the reason why winters are considered one of the most fashionable seasons. Explore the endless options of teaming up your 1 single wardrobe item with another and get a new look everyday!” further said Gaurav and Nitesh from Studio AV.

While designer Amy Billimoria suggested that “Layer up the outfit to create oomph and at the same time stay warm, this is the best bet this season. Pallazos teamed with asymmetric kurtas and vests or capes plus dupattas. Saree worn over lehengas and accessorised with a hand-embroidered belt is also a great choice.”

And Designer Madhu Jain stated that “Layering up can be fun and the results, stunning! Not to mention, innovative. But remember, each layer should act as a foil to the layer under it. Team up a saree with a short, long-sleeved shrug to grab eyeballs. Or add some drama to your lehenga with a flowy jacket with slits right up to the waist so that it does not interfere with the skirt’s free movement.”

Fusion Funda: Outfits with Indo-Western silhouettes can become picks for alluring winter wedding looks. Jackets or tunics with leggings, trousers or dhoti pants and long skirts paired with trendy winter blouses can become wonderful Indian winter wedding dresses. Another great option would be floor length gowns or our desi anarkalis with sufficient conceal on the top.

Leg Warmers Under your Lehenga: Okay, not a very hot (irony much) thing to do but, well; when the temperature is down, you rather keep your legs warm without anyone noticing (make sure your leg warmers are 3 quarter lengths). Thermals showing from under your lehenga would be an epic fail now wouldn’t it?

What’s More…

Designer Madhu Jain suggests “For those donning sarees, now is the time to bring out those quarter-sleeved sari blouses in warmer and luxurious fabrics such as knits, velvet, and silk. Keep the necklines high to double the warmth factor. Or, slip into a well-fitting thermal camisole under a kurta for some extra snugness. My personal tip: velvet, apart from being very warm, can look very dressy and classy, but over-embellishment of the fabric tends to take away from that.”

“Feet tend to get cold and a traditional bride can experiment with closed shoes such as jootis instead of open footwear. The long wedding ceremony, which is often held in the dead of night, can be uncomfortable too, so I’d say that a bride could think of wearing sheer stockings, as long as they are skin coloured. And of course, a steaming cup of coffee, tea, or soup can add natural radiance to the bride and also warm the cockles of her heart,” she further added.

On the same notes Gaurav and Nitesh from Studio AV suggested that “Shawls are the most classic and traditional way to keep warm in winters. Team up a simple plain saree/ lehenga/kalidar with a Parsi or Kashmiri embroidered shawl and glam up the look while keeping yourself warm. Play with different types of drapes for the dupatta/shawl to make the look unique. The bride should have a cup of coffee or any hot drink at regular intervals. Stay near the fireplace and be among people to remain warm. And the best option is - dance your way and keep the chills away!”
