Winter wedding season is here, and you’re probably wondering what to wear.

When it comes to wedding attire, there’s no wrong answer. You can wear whatever makes you feel like the best version of yourself. But if you’re someone who’s looking for a bit more guidance, we’ve got you covered with our guide to winter wedding attire.

We’ve broken down what you should wear by seasonally appropriate fabrics like velvet, satin, and more- and we’ll also share some tips on how to make each fabric look it’s absolute best!

Even with cold weather, weddings are a delight to experience. And with wedding season in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll wear to your next wedding event.


Velvet is a warm fabric that can be made of silk, wool, or synthetic fibers. It’s often used for dresses, jackets, and coats but can also be worn as pants or skirts. Velvet is a formal fabric that works well on dressy occasions such as weddings. Many of this year’s winter gown and dress coat fabrics are incorporating this luxurious texture with deep jewel tones and it looks incredible against a winter backdrop.

Heavily embellished fabrics

For the bride, heavily embellished fabrics are ideal. This can be anything from embroidery to lace and beads, sequins, and feathers. These types of embellishments aren’t just for the bride anymore. Even as a guest at the wedding, showing off and looking great is still important. Some of the best attire this season includes a little something extra to make it stand out.


Sleeves are back in style and they look fabulous on everyone who wears them. This is great news to keep you warm in the winter months and they’re being seen on everything from cocktail dresses to formal jumpsuits.

Satin or silk

If you’re looking for a natural fiber that’s soft, luxurious, and has a sheen to it, then silk is the fabric for you. Silk is often used in clothing because of its smooth texture and versatility. You can find silks in both woven and knitted versions—the former is made with several threads simultaneously while being twisted together while the latter involves creating a single thread out of many fibers at once. The two different processes also produce different types of silk: woven or knitted. Woven silks are flat; knitted ones have some stretchiness to them (which makes them ideal for waistbands). Silk is already such an important part of the big day and can be found all over the place—in tablecloths and napkins as well!

So there you have it, everything you need to know about what to wear to a winter wedding venue in 2023. The most important thing is to make sure that whatever you choose is something that makes you feel confident and comfortable so you can enjoy the celebration to the fullest!
