Dressing for a Winter Wedding Is Hard, But We're Here to Help

Dressing for a winter wedding raises its own set of unique questions. Will I still look good in photos if I wear a coat? Will my outfit still suit the dress code if I wear a jacket? Can I last the entire course of the wedding in these shoes? (We’ve already rounded up the comfiest shoes to wear by the way.)

Temperature aside, all you need is a dress that will make you feel your best (read: fit perfectly) from ceremony to the dance floor. It's also important not to compromise and buy something at the last minute in a panic—take your time and get it right early. Whether it's a wedding on the beach, at a farm or winery, or even a traditional ballroom soirée, we've got you covered with these editor-approved outfits.
