We all love a festive party and the winter months are perfect. The Christmas theme and spirit is what really captures the imagination.
I my self had a Christmas wedding and it was a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. Imagine having all the Christmas trees and decorations for the back drop to your wedding and all the festive food for your wedding guests!
As for the Wedding outfits for the Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom little changes. The colour pallet tends to change however the fabrics still remains the same as spring or summer outfits. Silver and golds are very popular with pewters and bronzes for richness. Berry colours are beautiful and very traditional, rich red or burgundy or luxurious greens are fabulous. Black is not as popular as it used to be, but maybe only as an accent colour or in your accessories for example your shoes and bag.
My Mum chose devore silk velvet in a beautiful colour pallet of gold, copper, burgundy and bronzes for a coat which went over a simple velvet two piece. Her hat was velvet which complemented the colouring of her outfit.
You obviously do not have to wear velvet. The outfits are amazing and by just adding a little fur or velvet just takes it up a notch on the chic stakes especially for a Christmas Wedding. Add sparkle to your outfit for example have extra in the decoration on your hat or in your fasinator. Do not go too over the top, keep it chic and classy.
If it is a church wedding remember it can be chilly so think carefully about what outer layer will complement your outfit. How about a fur stole or coat or a pashmina wrap. A big no no is do not wear your everyday coat.
Some winter Weddings can be an evening affair. Why not wear a gorgeous evening dress or cocktail dress.
Whatever you choose you will look fabulous.
