According to The Knot, winter is the least popular time of year to have a wedding. Probably due to the frigid temperatures in some parts of the country, but I would rather be chilly than sweating through the ceremony.

This post is all about winter wedding guest dresses and the gorgeous styles you’ll feel beautiful wearing.

I had my wedding in February and it was a little chilly here in the south, but there was no way I was having a summer wedding. The last thing I wanted was my makeup dripping off my face!

I love love and weddings are just so beautiful. Also, I love getting all glammed and dressed for the occasion. I love rich fabrics, like velvet and satin, jewel tones, and sequins this time of year. But you will also have to take the weather into consideration.

You may want to opt for a maxi or floor-length dress to stay warm. If the wedding is outdoors, think about outerwear. Dresses with puff sleeves may be difficult to fit in a coat so dress accordingly.

Additionally, try to keep your attire occasion-appropriate. Bright floral prints or super tight dresses may not fair well at a black tie wedding. However, if the wedding is taking place during the day and the weather permits, a mini dress may be wedding guest dress approved.


The best thing to wear to a winter wedding is something that you are going to be comfortable in. If dresses are not your thing, try a jumpsuit or black slacks and a festive top.

You’ll also want to reference the wedding invitation for a dress code. Many will let you know if the wedding event will be semi-formal, formal, or casual. You’ll want to adhere to these recommendations as it is the couples’ preference.

Additionally, you’ll want to stay away from anything that will draw too much attention. Leave your avant-garde pieces for another day. You will also want to stay clear of wearing white or anything that may resemble white.
