Wedding wednesday no. 7 // if i was a winter bride…

After a brief pause from "Wedding Wednesday" last week for the Impeccable Pig X Lonestar Southern launch, I’m thrilled to be back with a new wedding-related post!
Y’all know by now that I’m getting married in June, and everything about the day will be colorful, fresh and oh-so-summery. As excited as I am to be a summer bride, I’ve always thought there’s something so romantic about winter weddings. There’s something about the added festivity of the season that makes for a truly beautiful occasion! (Not to mention my parents actually got married the week after Christmas!)
So today, I thought it would be fun to share three winter bride looks from Nordstrom if I was getting married during the holidays! Scroll below for the dress I would wear to a winter rehearsal dinner, the dress I would wear to a winter engagement party, and the dress I would wear to another winter wedding.

rehearsal dinner

DRESS   vince camuto feather trim off the shoulder dress   |   EARRINGS  pearl studs   |   SHOES   christian louboutin simple pump (similar here)   |   CLUTCH  ysl clutch   |   LIP COLOR  "merry rose"
Nothing says "I’m the bride" like a white dress at a rehearsal dinner party! I almost wish I was having a New Years Eve wedding, because this dress would make for the most fabulous going away ensemble! With the classic shift cut and the gorgeous feather neckline, this dress was made for the winter bride. But honestly, it would make for an amazing rehearsal dinner dress year round!
A note on sizing. I ordered an XS, my usual size, and found this dress ran a bit large. Try ordering a size down for a more snug fit!

engagement party

DRESS  red strapless dress   |   EARRINGS   red bow earrings   |   SHOES   christian louboutin simple pump (similar here)   |   CLUTCH  ysl clutch   |   LIP COLOR  "merry rose"
I know that the unspoken rule these days is that the bride wears white to every occasion, but there’s something about an all-red look that I find just as captivating… especially for a winter engagement party! Stand out from the crowd in this gorgeous red strapless frock paired with the prettiest bow earrings. Not only will you set the tone for an incredible engagement party, but you can wear this ensemble again and again!
A note on sizing. I ordered a 0, and found it to be a bit big. I’m usually either a 00 or 0, so if you’re between sizes, order the smaller.

wedding guest

DRESS   black velvet sequin dress   |   EARRINGS   black feather earrings   |   SHOES   christian louboutin simple pump  |   CLUTCH  ysl clutch   |   LIP COLOR  "merry rose"
I’ve found when it rains, it pours… with weddings, that is! I have so many friends who have either gotten married or who are getting married this year. So, not only do I need to have my own bridal looks, but also wedding guest outfits to celebrate others in! Take a break from all-white with this black, velvet sequined number. This dress is perfectly festive, incredibly comfortable, and an amazing option for any wedding you have during the holidays! (And can anyone say perfect New Years dress?!)
A note on sizing. I ordered a 00, and found it to be a perfect fit! I’m usually either a 00 or 0, so if you’re between sizes, order the smaller.
Whether you have a winter wedding coming up, are soon to be a spring bride, or are simply looking for an ensemble for your next festive occasion, you’ll find everything you’ll need at Nordstrom. (Did you know they even having an amazing online wedding suite?) And since getting the perfect dress is of utmost importance, don’t forget about free shipping! Try on and return to your hearts desire until you find exactly what you’re looking for!
Now I have to ask… which look is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!
