4 Christmas Wedding Looks

Tis the season to get married


Christmas weddings are becoming more and more popular. While peak season remains Summer in the eyes of a venue, there seems to be nothing more magical than the candle-lit, crisp evenings and gorgeously wintery Christmas weddings. So 2022 brides, it’s officially 12 months until you’re getting wed, and it’s time to start looking for a winter wedding dress that ticks all the boxes. Here’s a few ideas from our luxury bridal designers at Hannah Elizabeth Bridal.

When it comes to shopping for a luxurious Christmas bridal gown, some brides like to look at long-sleeved wedding dresses that keep them a little more snug on the day itself. This is particularly needed if you’re planning on having photographs taken outdoors, which of course you’re likely to do! Long-sleeved bridal gowns are both sensible and sultry – perfect for a winter wedding look.

Another popular Christmas bridal look – sparkles! Sparkles, sparkles, sparkles. Many of our brides over the years have opted for stunning bridal gowns or bridal separates that have embellished details, as opposed to lace or floral features. An embellished bridal dress adds that extra touch of wintery wonderfulness to your day.

However, that being said, some brides also opt for modern, crisp winter bridal style – complete with a tuxedo for the groom. This look usually accompanies a crepe bridal gown which screams winter chic.

No matter your style, at Hannah Elizabeth Bridal we have a range of bridal dresses and separates guaranteed to suit your winter bridal style. Book your appointment today to find ‘The One!’ in time for your opulent winter wedding! In the meantime, check out our 5 top winter wedding looks below.

1. Eugenie by Vera Wang

The brand new Vera Wang Bride collection here at Hannah Elizabeth Bridal features the most incredible bridal gowns, with many suitable for a December wedding. However, the gorgeous Eugenie bridal gown by Vera Wang is our top pick. Featuring a sheer, embellished layer over a crisp white sweetheart mini dress, this designer wedding dress is the ideal dress for our fashion-focused brides. And of course, this winter bridal gown is complete with puff sleeves – the bride in this dress will certainly shine.

2. Separates by Catherine Deane

Catherine Deane has been a long-standing favourite at Hannah Elizabeth Bridal for many years now. The stunning Bridal Separates and Bridal Gowns provide so much choice and flexibility for our brides, to help them really embrace their own style and vision for their big day. 

Either of these bridal separates would be incredible for a winter wedding. Both the Tyler Top and the Monique Top can be paired with the brides choice of bottom (we’d recommend the Delia Skirt!) and provide a sophisticated, glam Christmassy look!

And for the brides who LOVE the crepe finish – we’d recommend the chic Olive by Love Story Bride, complete with fashion-forward cape. This gorgeous ‘modern bride’ dress features a high neck and sculpted ‘V’ back – the ultimate standout look for a winter wedding. The Olive Cape by Love Story Bride adds a further touch of glam sophistication and almost creates an angelic vision that fits beautifully with a Christmas wedding.

At the end of the day, there is no set winter bridal gown and many bridal gowns that suit the summer weddings also suit winter weddings – you just may need to think about keeping warm in any outdoor shots. That said, our suggestions above have been popular for many wintery weddings due to having features or detail that fulfil a vision of a Christmas wedding. Whether it’s the sparkles and embellishment, the longer-sleeves or the angelic vibe of a modern cape – we hope you loved our winter wedding dress inspiration! 

At Hannah Elizabeth Bridal, we’re proud to help the modern bride help find the luxury chic bridal gown of her dreams. Book your appointment today to start your journey to finding ‘The One’!
