Over recent years we have been witnessing a significant increase in the number of brides turning away from a traditional spring/summer wedding to instead celebrate their nuptials with a winter wonderland spectacular and as a result we have enquiries regarding our Dressmaking Fabrics for weddings have picked up apace. Of course traditional summer weddings are always stunning however there is something particularly magical about a winter wedding. With a winter celebration you can take advantage of extra special features such as log fires, twinkling fairy lights and if you are lucky a dusting of snow. A winter wedding is truly spectacular and is the perfect opportunity to be creative with your decor, photography and the design of your gown. There are a number of reasons a bride may opt for a winter wedding including a wider availability of suppliers and of course personal preference.

For summer wedding we see similar colour schemes of Dressmaking Fabrics retaining their popularity year after year such as pastel shades of pink and blue. Summer bouquets are normally crafted from pretty summer blooms such as lilies and roses whereas for winter celebrations brides can take advantage of the opportunity to experiment with a more dramatic colour palette. Dressmaking Fabrics in shades of scarlet, purples and even black are a popular choice with winter brides and paired with bouquets and decorations made from beautiful winter ornaments such as berries, holly and ivy results in a simply stunning effect. Of course the most important aspect of a winter wedding celebration is the brides gown; many winter brides will opt for a much more dramatic gown than a traditional white and choose cooler shades such as bronze, gold and silver. Our selection of duchess satin Dressmaking Fabrics are the perfect choice for an elegant winter bridal town and due to their substantial weight, duchess satin fabrics are perfect for a heavier, fairytale gown.

When marrying during the cooler temperatures of a British winter, warmth and comfort is particularly important to consider. However this does not mean that you have to compromise on style. Traditionally, winter brides have been known to opt for a stole to keep themselves warm during the ceremony however, thanks to design houses showcasing a stunning collection of winter bridal couture many of our winter brides have become much more bold and adventures with their choice of bridal outfit with brides choosing outerwear accessories such as cape, shawl or even a full length coat crafted from more contemporary Dressmaking Fabrics such as faux fur and velvet.
