Finding the perfect wedding guest dress is hard at the best of times (although we do love the buying and searching process), let alone when it’s freezing cold outside! When it comes to winter weddings, you’ll probably want to go for a dress that fits the festive fashion theme (darker colours like blues, reds and greens) that are a bit longer, possibly even with long sleeves to brace against the cool outdoor temperatures. Although, if you’re more of an ‘I’ll wear what I want and accessorise with a nice coat and shoes’ kind of person, we’ve got you covered there too!

Here are 50 of our favourite winter wedding guest dresses, perfect for the winter season:

Final Thoughts

Finding the perfect dress for a winter wedding can be difficult.

But, we hope this list of some of our favourite winter-appropriate outfits for weddings gave you a bit of food for thought. Happy shopping!
