We all know that weddings can be stressful for many reasons – getting everything prepared, coordinating with family and friends, adding some special touches to your attire, and more. There is no room for error – especially if you’re attending a winter wedding – and the last thing you want is to make fashion mistakes that may embarrass you or your family. With a few tips, you can avoid doing this and enjoy the day. Here are a few fashion mistakes you can avoid when going to a winter wedding.
1- Wearing Light Clothes
There is no escaping the cold weather, but dressing in light clothes can make you feel more vulnerable. We want to be warm and stay safe while we’re out and about, so dressing with layers and protecting yourself will help keep the cold out.
2- Wearing Bright Colors
We’re not saying you should wear a long dark gown to a winter wedding, but it is important to remember that the location will most likely be colder during the winter months. Try to avoid wearing anything too bright, as this can make you look chiller and make the other guests feel like you are trying too hard to be noticed (even if it’s unintentional).
If you choose to wear a classic suit, vibrant floral prints, or overly bright colored clothes, make sure they are subtle and not overpowering.
3- Dressing for A Certain Place
Another mistake many people make is assuming all weddings are held in the same place, such as a church or banquet hall. If there is an outdoor ceremony, it may be held in an area with gardens, ponds or even natural scenery. As such, you should wear a formal and conservative attire.
4- Wearing Open Shoes
You should avoid wearing open shoes to a winter wedding. This is because you might have to walk in snowy or icy conditions – and high heels are not ideal. In addition, you may be outside for quite some time, and your feet could get cold if you’re not wearing appropriate shoes.
5- Wearing Heavy Makeup
If you’re attending a winter wedding and are going to be in photos, then you may want to consider toning your makeup down, as the camera may exaggerate all the flaws on your face.
6- Not Considering Wearing Hats
You might be going to a winter wedding and not want to wear a hat. Chances are, however, that you’ll be wearing one in the event that it is snowing or raining during your ceremony.
7- Wearing Tight Clothes
You should also avoid wearing outfits that are too tight as they may be uncomfortably warm on your skin. Clothes should allow you to breathe and move comfortably, so stick with comfortable pieces that can be layered if necessary.
8- Wearing Delicate Jewelry
Finally, another mistake many people make is choosing delicate jewelry pieces to wear to a winter wedding. You could easily lose a ring or necklace while walking in the snow, so wearing something simple and less expensive will ensure that you don’t ruin your look with an expensive piece of jewelry (that you might lose).
Overall, preparing for a winter wedding could be stressful, especially when it comes to fashion. Some fashion mistakes you should avoid include wearing light clothes, open shoes, and delicate jewelry, among others. If you manage to avoid these mistakes, you are going to rock!
