What to Wear: Winter Wedding

by Amanda Jane Jones

One of my favorite movies is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. One of the more memorable songs, June Bride, says “Winter weddings can be gay, like a Christmas holiday!”  The holidays are such a magical time…then add in a wedding? Sounds lovely to me. Below are some ideas for what to wear and what to give at a winter wedding.



TO WEAR: Dress / Necklace / Shoes / Coat / Clutch / Bow Belt

TO GIVE: Art Print / Sculpture / Custom Address Stamp / Napkins

    I am struggling with something to wear to a winter (black tie optional) Orthodox Jewish wedding. Apparently, I can’t expose my arms or show skin in general. (Not that I’m going to be a hoochie mama or anything, but not showing anything makes it tough.)

    Love the clothes and Seven Brides but I hate Christmas Weddings. My calendar is so packed with parties and concerts and a million kid things that I hate to have to squander my precious time on a wedding. I have a super good friend getting married this weekend and going to her wedding means I’m going to have to skip my daughter’s regional choir Christmas performance. Which I don’t want to do. Ugh. Christmas weddings are rude!

    I’m going to beg my children to not get married in December. Or at least not until December 27th.

    I’m a big fan of emilie friday and use her calligraphy set. The rubber stamp is a great idea!

    @Leslie: What about a beautiful, slim fitting, black turtleneck and a pencil skirt with some sparkle. Awesome tights and pumps. . .you’re set and WARM.

    Great collection & inspiration above. Made me even more excited for my own winter wedding in January.

    A year or so ago, I brought a fantastic dress that would be awesome for such a conservatuve wedding. A fitted, three quarter length sleeve midi pencil dress, it hugged every curve but not too tightly, which looks awesome with stilettos as the dress is demure. Then the shoes/legware are the sex and the dress is seductive but with an elegance that wouldn’t look out of place in 1956!

    Love that dress – I’ve asked Santa if I could have it in red for this Christmas 🙂 Incidentally, we also did a post about wedding outfits and featured that dress in different (slightly more summery) colours Just goes to show it really could be the perfect dress!
