The ‘Save the date’ is
penciled in your agenda, a polished invitation card is somewhere in the closet
and the wedding website lost in your emails. A winter wedding is all the more
precious because it is rarer than warmer days’ occasions. We gathered some tips
for you to look fabulous and make the most of that treasured party. We don’t want to outshine the bride, but we
Winter Color Palette
Weddings are the perfect occasion to opt for color. This
autumn winter season, tones are warm with a colorful freshness, calming and soothing
hues inspired by nature, and a touch of retro. Fall Winter 22/23 color trends
feature oxide orange, jade green, brass, honey, dark oak, midnight blue, digital
lavender and luscious red.
This Fall Winter season fabrics are about a balancing
grounding soft textures and whirls of fantasy. Runways revealed the freedom of
fluid fabrics, the sparkle of shiny metallic, the mystery of modern geometries,
the romance of floral embroideries and plays on sheer. Dance the night away in
flowy mousseline, shimmery taffeta, studded jersey or iridescent georgette.
The dress code on the invitation card gives a hint for what
to wear but the key is always choosing what you are comfortable with, that
suits you. White tie says most formal; a floor length gown. For black tie and
formal mentions, choose a long or short dressy dress, or opt for a tad more
laid back taffeta top and skirt. If the card says festive attire don’t hesitate
to play with sparkles and bold colors. When packing for a spectacular
destination wedding, we would recommend choosing a lightweight fabric for your
dress to leave space in your suitcase for a fab morning after outfit.
Why not try the key hair and make-up trends of the season? A
sleek low ponytail, a polished or messy side part line with extra volume, or pulled
back hair with a slight retro volume as we chose for our models this season. Hair
trends go from long and flowy to retro chop style short cut. The eyelids turn
into a canvas to paint a multicolored palette, metallic, smoky eyes or winged
liners. As for nails, trends get playful; drop some pearls or crystals, metallic
hues or two-toned abstract geometries. For extra fun for the occasion, French
manicure is back but this time the tips are colorful and funky. Our easy,
beautiful and a tad groovy reco; match your dress color.
Time for the final touch; accessories. In case you need to
walk in the cold, make sure to choose a cashmere shawl, a cozy furry wrap or a
long wool coat that you can drop indoors. Add a pair of heart or geometric
shaped earrings, some grand pearls, or layer maxi bracelets. As for shoes, we
say there are no rules; go bold with black or silver ankle boots, dazzle with high
heeled pumps, or choose sandals with an artsy or a smooth plain color pair of stockings.
Grab a mini IT bag or a clutch, something with an easy handle, chain or
bracelet, so you can carry it, hands free to be whirled around on the
