6 bridal beauty tips for a winter themed wedding

The bridal gown

Bridal gowns are not usually designed for winter themed weddings. The only thing you can do to ensure you won’t be cold on your wedding day is to choose a nice bridal dress that goes well with gloves and a fur coat.

The bridal shoes

The bridal shoes are usually chosen to match the bridal gown. But for a winter themed wedding you will not be able to wear sating shoes as your feet will froze. You should consider wearing an elegant pair of white boots while you are out door, and switch to a pair of elegant white shoes at your wedding reception.

The bridal undergarments

All the brides want to impress their partner on their wedding night and to be sexy and attractive. But before choosing your bridal undergarments keep in mind that if you have suffered from cold during the entire wedding day you won’t be able to feel the gentle touches of your groom on your wedding night. Also, you don’t want to risk spending your honeymoon sneezing and blowing your nose. To avoid all this you should consider wearing thicker garters and a body under your wedding gown.

The bridal fur coat

Your winter themed wedding is the perfect occasion for you to buy a fluffy white fur coat, a bolero or an elegant fur jacket. Keep the fur coat unbuttoned as you don’t want to be hot and sweet when there is so cold outside. If your budget doesn’t allow you to buy a fur coat, you could go with a Russian mufta to complete your winter bridal look.

The bridal bouquet

The bridal bouquet is one of the most important details of a wedding. But a floral bridal bouquet might not be the best idea for a winter themed wedding, as they will wilt on the low temperature. But if you insist on having a floral bridal bouquet avoid lilies, orchids and all the flowers that have large petals.

The bridal makeup and hairstyle

We strongly recommend you try your makeup and hairstyle before the wedding so that you can see how your hair resists to high quantity of hair spray or other substances. You should avoid curls, as they tend to look soaked in the cold weather. Also, keep in mind that you have to use foundation for the cold season and waterproof make up.
