Winter may be the most romantic time for a wedding. A cozy venue filled with candles and snow falling outside? Gorgeous! Not to mention it’s still cuffing season, so singles could meet someone special. That said, dressing for a formal event in cold weather isn’t easy. Here are 13 winter wedding guest dresses to consider.
Some winter weddings go all in on the Christmas theme or fall around New Year’s Eve, so sequins and sparkles are appropriate. However, if you’re not the glitter type, below are some velvet, satin and lace options.
With dresses ranging from $55 to $298, there is something for every budget. Take a look below to get some ideas of what to wear to your next cold-weather nuptials.
1. Banana Republic Factory Velvet Midi Dress, $55 (Orig. $110)
Slip this slinky velvet dress on and go! It comes in two winter-appropriate colors and looks great under a faux fur jacket.
This dress has a lace overlay with a peekaboo cutout at the waist. It’s classy but a little bit fun, too.
This jumpsuit is business in the front with its straight-leg pants and party in the back with a full skit.
Yes, this isn’t technically a dress, but this jumpsuit is still a great option for that wedding you have to attend this winter. Pants are warmer and sometimes better for dancing.
Florals aren’t just for spring. The pink flowers add a pop of color to this black velvet midi dress in the colder months.
6. Open Edit Sequin Midi Slipdress, $79

Simple doesn’t mean boring, and this dress is proof. This dark purple is pretty for wintertime weddings, but it also comes in Black and Rust Orange.
BCBGMAXZARIA dresses are always well-made and usually pretty pricey. However, you can score this one for about $120 at Marshalls and look like a million bucks.
Go glam in this shiny silver mini dress. The ruffles will move with you on the dance floor!
Sure, this is called a “Nap Dress,” but there won’t be any napping if you wear it. It comes in a wide range of colors and fabrics for every season, but this blue velvet is a standout for the colder months.
