Pin-Worthy Winter Wedding Bridal Outfit Ideas To Save Right Now

Oct 17, 2022

A wedding for a bride is a momentous event and among everything, the most crucial part of her special day is her bridal ensemble. Winter weddings are no doubt absolutely beautiful and most favored among the other seasons. Getting hitched in cold weather while carrying your best bridal look with those sexy back designs can be a bit of a task, isn’t it? But on the positive side winter weddings will allow the bride to get her bridal outfit designed in any fabric she wants. Especially fabrics like raw silk, velvet, organza, crepe, khadi, and satin - which are not a great choice for comfort during other seasons. 

Winters are around the corner, and so is the wedding season, and to help you with the planning, here is a list of stunning bridal outfits that will not only make you look absolutely PHAT (Pretty, Hot, and Tempting) but will save you from the bites of winter too. 

1. Full-sleeves Floor-length Anarkalis

We all know by now that the trend of Anarkalis is not going to fade away so soon in South Asian weddings. Among all the other ethnic outfits, Anarkalis look stunning and comfortable too. In seasons like winter, brides can go for the heavily embellished floor-length Anarkalis with full sleeves. If you are going for a light-weighted fabric then opt for embroidered work all along the outfit. Go for a double dupatta and style it the way you want. The good thing about floor-length anarkalis is you can wear leggings or a layered sharara or a gharara that can protect you from the cold waves. 

Moss Green Floor Length Anarkali

This moss green floor-length Anarkali with intricate embroidery and full sleeves is such a unique yet gorgeous choice for a wedding ceremony. Apart from the color of the Anarkali what will make you stand out as a bride is the peach-colored floral dupatta. You can go for another dupatta or a stole to style the look. This outfit is apt for your mehndi, sangeet, or bridesmaid going to her BFFs wedding.

There will be freedom of choosing any kind of fabric, but as we already mentioned, try to choose heavy fabric outfits. To all the new brides or ladies, have some fun styling your outfit, any kind of season, day and time should not stop you from looking your best.
