Although weddings are generally more likely to be a summer affair, winter weddings are now being chosen by more and more couples. Winter weddings can be as stunning as summer weddings, but when it comes to dress choices, they sometimes leave guests struggling. Take a look some ideas from XV Kings Menswear via EJ Menswear
Here are some ideas that will help you get ready for a winter wedding.
Up the Layers
Hopefully, you will not be left standing outside for too long, however, particularly if the weather is good, you should always be prepared for outdoor group photographs. You won’t need to bother dragging a bulky winter coat around with you all day if the wedding takes place entirely in a hotel, but adding subtle extra layers can be a huge help to keep you safe. It might sound old-fashioned, but in cold weather, a vest or white t-shirt underneath your shirt can really make a difference.
Wear a coat that is smart
You’ll need a suitable coat if you’re going to a traditional wedding that takes place at more than one venue. When you stand outside the church or other place, a smart wool or similar coat in a dark subdued shade looks great worn over a suit and will keep you warm. The art of matching a coat with a suit can be difficult to strike a balance between smart and warmth. Try and put together some examples of coats that look great in formal settings.
You may want to add some layers if it’s especially cold, such as a scarf and gloves. At a formal wedding, your regular cold weather accessories might not cut it so consider purchasing a clever coordinating package that complements the colour of your coat and suit. Good options are simple dyed scarves or typical patterns such as stripes or argyle knit – stay away from something that is too outlandish or casual if you don’t want to look and feel out of place.
