What To Wear To Your Winter Elopement
Winter snowbirds, listen up. It’s your season. The air is crisp and clean, the atmosphere is warm and cozy, and New York City is a glittery carpet full of lights and wonder. Now that we think about it, it’s a great time to elope.
There are a ton of advantages to getting married this season, but winter fashion isn’t one that usually comes to mind. At Elope Studios, we’ve seen brides rock all kinds of gorgeous ensembles that are light years away from a traditional wedding dress (and usually a lot more stunning). There. We said it.
If you know a winter elopement is for you, but aren’t sure what to wear, we’ve got your back. (Rather, a few of our favorite past winter-brides have your back.)
Snow Queens, unite!
THROW ON A DECORATIVE SHAWL:
Twirl it up, wrap it around, and totally rock it. Adding a unique shawl with an intricate print or unique texture is an awesome way to jazz up your elopement look and keep you nice and cozy. (Bonus: this is a great way to work in a family piece for your *something borrowed!*)
"WOW" THEM IN AN ACCENT FAUX FUR:
Throwing on a fuzzy faux fur screams GLAM and “THIS DAY IS A BIG DEAL!” Hey, is this your elopement or the red carpet? Trick question. SAME THING!
STUN IN A ROYAL COAT:
I’m talking tailcoat, metallic lining, double-breasted, too-many-buttons kind of coat. Wrapping yourself up in heavy duty outerwear ensures you’ll be able to get through your vows before the frostbite sets in and keep you looking gorgeous AF.
Elegant white gloves? Yes, please. Kick-ass boots? We’ll take two. Accent earmuffs? Literally, duh, why aren’t earmuffs a marriage standard yet? Make your elopement an opportunity to practice the “more is more” attitude.
Sure, some people will argue that you technically can’t wear alcohol. But also, those people probably never stepped outside after downing at least one or two “Hell yes, we did it!” tequila shots. Suffice it to say, you can always count on booze to keep you warm, but you didn’t hear it from us. Because promoting drinking would be wrong.
