If you’re heading to a classy winter locale like Alaska for your best day ever, may we suggest packing a long sleeved wedding dress with a little sparkle?
Mallory Dawn by Maggie Sottero offers coverage for cooler temps without sacrificing style or romance. It’s the perfect choice for a nature-inspired celebration with dramatic winter backdrops!

There’s nothing quite like a bishop-sleeved bridal gown for a winter wedding. This covetable trend is one-part 60s icon, one-part Renaissance romance, and one-part modern muse—combining seamlessly for an exceptionally stylish and comfortable silhouette.
We especially love a luxurious, embellished crepe wedding gown like Armante by Sottero and Midgley. Styled with moody jewel tones and gorgeous greenery, it brings a much-needed dose of cheer and vibrancy to your mid-winter blues.

For a sweet and bohemian cold-weather wedding vibe, opt for a delicate lace fabrication and effortless style á la Deirde by Maggie Sottero.
This lightweight winter wedding dress features sexy illusion details and a plunging back, yet plenty of bodice and skirt coverage for frosty conditions and rustic venues. It looks gorgeous in any season but exceptionally romantic for the winter. What more could we ask for?

What’s a winter wedding in the Redwoods without a little sparkle? Opt for a crystal-embellished bridal gown like Arleigh by Sottero and Midgley, and you’re basically wearing a head-to-toe statement piece for your big day.
This winter wedding dress’s minimalist crepe fabrication is also luxuriously soft and stretchy—i.e. ideal for inclement weather conditions.
Long Sleeve Bridal Gown for a Cool-Season Wedding

If you’re shopping for a winter wedding dress with sleeves, you’re working with two major categories: the demure and formal bridal aesthetic (often featuring full coverage in crisp satin and classic motifs), and the sensual and intriguing vibe (often with illusion details and one-of-a-kind lace patterns).
Antonia by Maggie Sottero belongs to the latter category, featuring a gorgeous knit lace in a relaxed fit-and-flare silhouette. It’s a divine choice for your chic, sexy, and ultra-romantic winter wedding vision.
Vintage Beaded Ball Gown for a Glamorous Wedding

Planning a black-tie reception for a holiday-themed wedding? Our vote goes to Allen by Sottero and Midgley—a glam, glitzy, and over-the-top ball gown wedding dress with oodles of sparkle, beading, and tulle. (Think of it like our bridal-gown equivalent of a New Year’s Eve champagne tower.) Get inspired by this real bride wearing Allen for her winter wedding in the link!
Psst… this winter wedding dress features a sister variation, Allen Lynette, for more coverage in the bust and back. Both variations feature white, ivory, and rose gold colorways to cover all your shimmery palette potential.
Elegant Winter Bridal Gown with Low Back

Evangelina by Maggie Sottero is one of our chicest winter wedding dresses for any season. However, it’s particularly suited for a glam, elegant, and romantic winter aesthetic (as demonstrated by this gorgeous real wedding here).
The minimalist crepe fabrication evokes freshly fallen snow, while delicate back beading feels like shimmery stars on a cozy December evening. What could be more enchanting for your happily-ever-after in a winter wonderland?
Modern Bridal Gown for Your Cool-Season Celebration

A halter neck may feel like a summery trend, but we’re grooving more on its potential for winter themes and holiday accessorizing. Cue Winifred by Sottero and Midgley, a chic lace design featuring an elegant halter neck and deep V-back.
This winter wedding dress features a perfect bodice design to complement faux fur shrugs, silky shawls, or jewel-toned pashminas. Divine!
Unique Off-the-Shoulder Lace Sheath Wedding Dress for a Sleeve Changeup

An off-the-shoulder mermaid bridal gown is a gorgeous choice for winter weddings (think of the shrug potential!). But we’re especially grooving on how this real bride added sleeves to completely personalize her Sabra wedding dress by Maggie Sottero.
Whatever your sleeve preference, use Sabra’s unique lace pattern to inspire your winter wedding details—from lush bouquets and romantic table settings to your shimmery-est signature cocktail.
