When the temperatures drop…Keeping the bride warm

Weddings in Winter can always be a little bit of a minefield. Weather obviously always plays havoc with most plans and there are so many things to bear in mind when planning or deciding on having a wedding in the Winter – not only do all the colour schemes have to change (orange and yellow look a little odd when everything’s so grey around) Photos are harder to take as no-one wants to be clambering around in the mud or the freezing cold let alone posing for them, the reception area has to be picked careful – no outdoor soiree and the wedding favours are more than likely going to be a rug than anything else but the one thing that worries us here at HQ is keeping the bride warm enough!

Sure enough your wedding dress is often the most important thing on a brides mind but as the temperatures drop the dress choices go down – there is no humane way of wearing a completely strapless gown in -1 degree weather that’s for sure! The last thing you need to be worrying about is freezing yourself and lets face it, no photo will look good if you’re pulling a clinched ‘cold’ face, be a savvy bride and have a look at our picks for best Bridal cover-ups and how to team them with our delicious bouquets
