We love winter weddings. Something about the season – jewel tones, cold weather, and snowy landscapes – makes for wonderfully romantic wedding ceremonies and receptions. If you have been invited to a wedding that falls over the cold winter months, you might be wondering what to wear to a winter wedding.

Should you dress for the weather? What colors look best during the colder months? What will make you look and feel great? At Confête, we have all the winter wedding guest outfit ideas you need to look your best!

Color Crush: Greens

Green is our favorite color to style and wear to a winter wedding. Green is flattering and chic no matter the shade – olive, emerald, or seafoam. In the winter, we love to wear jewel tones in silky and shimmering fabrics. The Eden Silk Ruffle Slit Maxi Dress fits the bill. We also like the Eva Olive Green Satin Ruffle Maxi Dress for its ruffle details and open back. The Bowery Sage Ruched Midi Dress is a versatile option that pairs beautifully with tons of jewelry and accessories.

Chic Black

Black in the winter says major sophistication. The Rachel Knit Midi Dress is a dream, while the Mina Black Velvet Jumpsuit has the perfect blend of holiday vibes in a classic silhouette. If you’re looking for a true standout winter wedding guest outfit idea, try our Rosie One Shoulder Bow Jumpsuit. Super chic and on-trend, it’s an item you can wear to your holiday office party.

Metallic and shimmery fabrics are perfect options if you’re wondering what to wear to a winter wedding. Our favorite is the Halle Shoulder Tie Deep V Maxi in Silver – we love pairing it with a glittery rhinestone bag or bold rhinestone earrings. The Jordan Metallic Wrap Maxi Dress also serves ultimate winter drama.

Winter Pastels

Autumnal and winter pastels were a major trend on runways this year. Cool blues and powdery purples are top of our list for what to wear to a winter wedding. We love the Alana Slate Pleated Cut-Out Long-Sleeved Maxi Dress and the Georgie Slate Blue Wrap Dress as options for a winter wedding guest outfit idea.
