A bride's typical attire is already all dressed in white, but some of our favorite bridal fashion details include some white touches that hint at winter and snow! Delicate lace ballet flats mimic snowflakes on your wedding day and a couture white bridal jacket is perfect for outdoor photos with your wedding gown. We've rounded up a few of our favorite winter wedding attire ideas for the bride, but think about a snow white dress, a furry white shawl or wrap to keep warm, a delicate white veil. The list is endless.
The white wedding attire doesn't have to stop with the bride. Your groom or your partner can also wear white. A white dinner jacket with a white pocket square looks amazing. A couple all dress in white on their wedding day, now that's chic!
You can go beyond the couple and talk about white dresses for the bridal party and for the guests. And all-white dressed bridal party may seem unconventional, because traditionally the bride wears white and everyone else wears every other color. But, we've seen an all white dressed bridal party and it looks incredible. Especially, when the bridal party dresses are mismatched, (Mismatched means the dresses are different styles and different designers, some short, some long, long off the shoulder or halter - whatever that person feels most comfortable in) and all-white dressed bridal party is so chic and stylish.
In addition to the couple and the bridal party, you can also ask that your wedding guests wear white as well. Again, this might seem a little unconventional, but when done right, it is incredible. Trust me. Couples make dress recommendations all the time, such as black tie or cocktail attire. Requesting that your guests wear white is no different. It is super fun and sets the tone for a wintery celebration! Oh the pictures, I can see it now!
With your wedding table linens, charger plates and even candle decor, your wedding table designs can make a huge impact with your white wedding decor.
Amazing photography backdrops made of white flower walls, white winter trees, white chair decor and even white confetti carry your wedding theming throughout the day.
The white decor options are endless. When thinking about all white for the decor, make sure to think about the room that is already there. What color are the carpets, the walls? Consider how the all-white decor will looks compared with already exists in the room and go from there.
With a winter white wedding you'll be keeping to a simple color palette. Choose some accent neutrals like silver, gold or champagne to sprinkle in throughout the wedding. Between white, clear (think acrylic and glass!) and you neutral accent color you'll have a magical wedding design. (We love this collection of clear and acrylic wedding ideas.)
White wedding decor doesn't have to mean stark or modern. Think about varying the textures used throughout your ceremony and reception space to give some warmth to your all white soiree.
