Of course, there are still certain rules to uphold as a wedding guest, usually pertaining to dress code. Most of these guidelines include colour restrictions (white, red, dark blue and dark green are colours to avoid for Western, Indian and Chinese weddings, respectively) and it’s best to wear something sophisticated to be respectful to the bride and groom.
With that in mind, here’s our expert guide on what to wear to a winter wedding…

Wear black

Black is a classic way to meet formal, cocktail or black-tie dress codes, and this chic fringed dress takes inspiration from ’70s party looks. A pointed-toe heel with crystal details prevents the look from being too simple.

Look festive

Winter is perfect for velvet, and this plum shade will ensure you don’t look like Mrs Claus. Balance the volume of the dress with chunky heels, and you’ll bring class and Christmas spirit to your reception.

Do winter floral

Florals aren’t just for spring or summer, and a winter floral done right is a classic wedding look. Highlight the yellow and orange aspects of the print with the bold gold heel.

Stay warm

If your wedding is mostly outdoors, it’s a good idea to wrap up. This is a fun take on the knit dress—it’s far from chunky and the aqua shade is bold without being distracting. Complement the open knit details on the arms and chest with mesh shoes.

Feel comfortable yet chic

If there’s going be a lot of food at the wedding, wear a kaftan! This stunning silk number features a colourful geometric pattern, and a wrap-around sparkling heel adds elegance to cut through the flowy silhouette.

Go glam

You can’t go wrong with pink, so you definitely won’t with two shades of it. If abundance is the theme, go all out with pink silk with crystals and feathers.

Play with details

A tasteful cut-out is a fabulous detail on any dress. This one is especially eye-catching thanks to the cut-out on the ribcage, emphasised by a gold chain. The rest is long sleeved and draped to prevent you from exposing too much.
