Winter is a beautiful time of year for a wedding anywhere, but especially beautiful in Houston, Texas. During winter the blistering heat becomes only a memory, while many lovely trees and flowers continue to bloom. Brides don’t have to worry about snow and ice marring their wedding ceremony, and if a touch of snow should fall, it will only make their wedding day that much lovelier. A winter wedding also allows a bride to choose from a much broader variety of bridesmaid gown styles, including fabrics, color and accessories. If you are having a winter wedding here in Houston, Texas, consider some of the ideas below.
Styles. Look for styles that are unique to winter, ones that would not be chosen for a spring or summer wedding here in Houston, Texas. Long sleeved gowns, higher necklines, and heavier skirts can all be considered. Of course, if you think sleeveless bridesmaids gowns would be best for your winter wedding, you should go with the choice you want, but if you are undecided there are some beautiful choices for winter wedding bridesmaids gowns. Longer gowns, skirts with petticoats, and wraps and jackets for the gowns can all be considered. Shop Anna’s Bridals on the Gulf Freeway in Houston, Texas for some beautiful bridesmaids gowns.
Fabrics. Heavier fabrics such as velvet and crepe silk can be chosen for your winter wedding bridesmaids’ gowns, as can fabrics that have heavy embroidering on the skirt or bodice. You can use more layering than you would for a summer wedding, either tiering and overlaying the skirts of the bridesmaids gowns or, for an especially elegant look, adding a lace overlay for the sleeves (lace can also be used alone.) Fabric choices you would normally avoid during the hot summer months (to avoid wilting bridesmaids) can now be used. Colors can be deeper and darker as well, such as a lush cranberry or sapphire. Try Montage Bridal on Bissonnet in Houston, Texas for some lovely bridesmaids gowns.
Accessories. Wraps, as noted above, can be an elegant touch to your winter wedding bridesmaids’ gowns. Shawls, shrugs and cropped jackets can all be worn in Houston, Texas winters, either in complementary or coordinating colors, and will look gorgeous in cashmere or faux fur. Even a soft sweater can make a lovely accessory for your bridesmaids gowns. Consider having identical wraps for both your own wedding gown as well as your bridesmaids – this will look very elegant in your wedding photos. Since the Houston, Texas winter weather also permits it, wraps may be essential for those outdoor photographs.

Shoes. Your shoe choices are endless when it comes to a winter wedding in Houston, Texas. Unlike colder climates, you can still choose a delicate sandal for your bridesmaids. Traditional dyed satin pumps are always an option, but you can also consider ankle boots or even a delicate granny boot for your wedding. This will depend on the style and length of your bridesmaids gowns, of course, but marrying here in Houston, Texas does open up your options a bit (no need to worry about wading through snow banks in a sequined mule with kitten heels.)
