A faux fur stole. "For the chilly winter months, consider some beautiful ways to k0eep cozy while walking down the aisle. Faux fur stoles add warmth and a lux vibe to any wedding gown for outdoor photos and ceremonies, and matching faux fur wraps for your bridal party make for a cohesive look." —Mandy Connor, Owner, Hummingbird Events & Design

A wedding gown with sleeves. "Don't shy away from a wedding gown with sleeves. Sleeves are in for any season — the added warmth they provide is simply a bonus!" —Connor

Breathable fabric for men. "Choosing the right fabrics can make a huge difference in your comfort level on your wedding day. Breathable options like merino wool look great and feel great, meaning you'll be comfortable all day long without having to sacrifice style." —Jason Jackson, President & COO, Generation Tux

Warm fabrics for women. "Choose your fabrics carefully. Gowns with velvet and satin elements can provide added layers of warmth without losing elegance. And detachable skirts give you the option of keeping your legs warm until dancing begins." —Connor

Accessories! "Rather than building your entire look around a heavier gown, instead focus on adding warmth through layers and accessories. Think long gloves, a faux fur stole, or even a bridal-inspired bolero! These items can easily be added to your attire for a chillier outdoor ceremony or reception and removed for indoor photos or parts of the day with heaters nearby so that you can still achieve the look you're envisioning." —Leah R. McCoy, President, Wedding Gown Preservation Kit
