Winter White Bridal Elegance: The Addition Of Fur

Oh, to marry in the Winter! A Winter bride. To be a bride in any Season is blissful. However, to appreciate the bride of Winter against a Winter white background is a vision to honor. There is something ethereal about a bride with a background of glistening snow. A natural “wedding garland”, indeed. For those that marry in climates where snowfall will bring swirling flurries cascading into a Winter wonderland, this ode to Winter bliss is for you. Crystalline water ice that falls from clouds as snow provides an exquisite setting for such a momentous and significant event as a wedding. White against white. Perfection. What better way to welcome the coolness of the season than with a “wrap” of fur? A bride wrapped in the warmth and glamour of fur is a timeless classic. Elegant whether real fur or faux. A Romantic vision of “Pure Allure”

Whatever “wrap” of warmth and elegance is chosen, whether a stole, a capelet (or cape) or a bolero, the luxurious embellishment around the shoulders of a Winter bride will capture a lovely vision of elegance. A Stole, narrower than a shawl, pairs sensationally with a gown of traditional white or even with a modern twist of color. Wrapped and carried about the bride’s shoulders or arms, its luxurious comfort with a sheen is an elegant adornment. “Off the shoulder style” that is a fashion statement of iconic status, the stole, as well as the other layering garments that can “wrap” in style, are often lined with luxurious fabrics, such as smooth satin. Perfection for a Winter bride

In appreciation of the Winter bride, congratulations to those that will “Wed” in the beautiful season of Winter. As snowflakes dance and the weight of the snow lays on the tree branches, may the imprints made in the snow create memorable moments of bliss. Wintry bliss and wedded love
