First things first, it is going to be cold and there is no getting away from that. Embrace the chilly weather by wrapping up warm in a statement cover up. There are so many choices, and you’re guaranteed to find something to suit your style while keeping cosy. We recommend donning a chic coat, faux fur bolero, stylish knit, leather jacket or an elegant shawl. Invest in a high-quality piece and you’ll have the chance to wear it again and again throughout Winter. A cute cover-up is perfect for walking to and from venues, and will keep you warm when you’re hovering around chatting outside. If you want to add an extra dash of glamour (who doesn’t?!) why not add a gorgeous brooch? It’ll give your outfit a sprinkling of Winter sparkle. Glitzy Secrets have a stunning collection of brooches – from Art Deco-inspired pieces to dazzling designs!
Winter is the perfect time to mix and match fabrics, textures and prints. Team a silk midi skirt with a stylish knitted jumper, or rock a velvet blazer with a pair of chic trousers. The contrasting materials and prints will look stunning together, and you’re guaranteed to look like the most fashionable wedding guests in the room. Plus, it means you’re more likely to keep warm by layering up.
‘Tis the season to sparkle your way through the day. Opt for an outfit that has a subtle hint of glitz and glamour to it. We’re talking jumpers adorned with sequins, skirts bejewelled with delicate beading and make-up that shimmers all day long. Metallic hues are made for this magical season, so make the most of it and embrace it with your wedding guest outfit. Don’t forget about your hair accessories and fashion jewellery – you’ll find lots of show-stopping designs on Glitzy Secrets.
When it comes to Winter outfit ideas for weddings, consider rocking black. It’s totally acceptable to wear black to a Winter wedding, you’ll just need to add a few pops of colour here and there. A pair of hot pink heels, or an emerald green clutch bag would look striking. A statement necklace in metallic and jewel hues will add a contrasting look that turns heads.

We recommend that Winter wedding outfits always have long sleeves – that way you can look cool yet keep warm. Plus, if you’ve worn a floral dress to a Summer wedding with long sleeves, you can easily wear it to a Winter celebration. Pair it with a black leather jacket and black heels and you’ve created a completely new look.
While we’re on the topic of shoes – we suggest always wearing closed toe heels for extra comfort. While you may have your heart set on that pair of sparkling heeled sandals, will you be cosy and comfortable in them all day? You’re bound to feel the cold and that will only affect your day as a wedding guest.
Winter weddings offer you the chance to change up your style, get creative and experiment with beautiful new accessories and trends. What will you be wearing to a Winter wedding?
