My fiance and I are planning a beautiful, private ceremony in a park. I picked out a beautiful, strapless silk-chiffon dress that is flowy and delicate and I love it. However, we're getting married in December, and the ceremony is going to take place outside.

Any ideas on how I can stay warm during the ceremony and still show off my pretty dress?

Since the weather has turned cold (yay Fall!) I think it's the perfect time to look into options that'll keep you warm on your winter wedding day. I've got things that'll keep you warm from head to toe, and please almost every style and wedding theme. So grab a cup of coffee, get comfy under a blanket, and let's go virtual shopping!

Shawls

White faux-fur shawls are a super stylish option.

Here's a warm and fuzzy faux mink shawl and it comes in white, ivory, black or brown. Love me some options.

Capes

Here's a more open-style white faux-fur capelet. This should show off more of your dress, but keep your shoulders and back all cozy. Get it here.

OMG, I want this satin-lined half cape with a hood, just because! This review in particular made me think it'd be great for a wedding: “This was perfect for my March wedding. Wore it for outdoor pictures and it was just lovely — complimented my ivory and light pink dress perfectly.”

This cape will keep you very warm and feeling wonderfully romantic. Perfect for a Medieval Renaissance wedding!

Gloves and sleeves

Lindsay wore these amazing arm warmers from Vaisto Clothing on Etsy. I love love LOVE these babies. If you want more colors and/or sparkles, these arm/leg warmers from KD Dance offer a lot of options.

How adorable could super warm knit hats be on a winter bride? I'd die of the overwhelming cute.

Fuzzy ear muffs in a variety of colors! This way you won't have to hide your fancy hair, but your ears will still stay warm.

Comments on Furry, funky, and fun options that’ll keep you warm on your winter wedding day

  1. I’m looking at getting either a cape or a cropped knit cardigan and fingerless gloves (so amazingly warm and comfy while being able to exchange rings, genius!). I am thinking of gifting my bridesmaids fingerless gloves to match their dresses and the bouquet wraps, and perhaps knit sweaters for then as well. We will be in Southern California, which could be anywhere between 50 and 70 degrees during the day, though it will most likely be around 60. Since we are having an outdoor ceremony and pictures and I get cold easily, these should keep me plenty warm 🙂

  2. We are eloping in late November and I am seriously debating buying a vintage fur. Would it be a waste of money and detract from my dress or would it look lovely, be a great splurge, and keep me warm from the November chills? Thoughts?

  3. If I may be so bold… When it comes to underthings, how about something a little more cutesy? I will probably get married in fall/winter, and I plan on wearing a hoop. This might get chilly, but Victorians got cold, too. They solved this with drawers and lots of petticoats, some even made of flannel. So I will be wearing full-length drawers (covered in lots and lots of eyelet lace frills) under several layers of petticoats. Depending on the weather, I might even break out the flannel.

    P.S. Capes are awesome. I will most likely be wearing a cape, too.

  4. I keep coming back to comment on this. I had a muff as a child – a teddy bear one. Liking the idea of having an adult muff – ; ) but maybe not white.
