Are you a winter bride who is getting married in December/ January? We promise you that your wedding will be magical if you have chosen this time of the year to tie the knot. However, while you will want to look stylish and amazing on your wedding day, we strongly advise you to stay warm and cosy. After all, dear winter brides, you do not want to freeze. Well, believe us when we are telling you that it is possible to look stylish as a winter bride, without freezing to death.
So, all the winter brides out there, follow these easy hacks to make a resplendent and stylish winter bride.
1. Choose your outfit material wisely.
The most important thing for winter brides to keep in mind is the fabric of their bridal lehenga. Sheer fabrics like net and georgette will do nothing in protecting you from the cold weather. Go for heavy and rich fabrics like velvet and raw silk. They won’t let the air pass through them easily and will keep you warm. Also, these heavy fabrics look very rich and will lend you a royal look.
2. Opt for double dupatta with your bridal lehenga.
Wearing a double dupatta is the first choice of many winter brides. You can use this trend to keep yourself warm at your winter wedding. You can wear a simple net dupatta with a heavy velvet dupatta. The net dupatta will add style and the velvet one will protect you from cold winds. You can use this trick to wear a warm shawl as well. Get a pretty pashmina that goes well with your lehenga and you are good to go!

This is that one trick that winter brides swear by! Wear leg warmers under your lehenga if the weather is too cold for you. If you are worried about getting them exposed, you can opt for leg warmers with 3/4th length. Trust us no one will notice.
