Check out this bride in her wedding here.
Some brides prefer to marry in the spring or summer, and others dream of tying the knot in the fall or winter. While we love winter weddings (the snow! the holidays! the romance!), it can be tough to find a dress fit for a cold-weather wedding — you’ll want to stay warm without sacrificing style. And that task can be even tougher for plus-size brides. Here, are a few things to consider if you’re a curvier girl shopping for a winter bridal look.
Remember: Sleeves Are Sexy
Well we all can thank Kate Middleton for this one. Follow the Duchess’s lead by rocking a long-sleeved wedding dress. Whether you want a cap sleeve or a full-length sleeve, the more covered up look is crazy stylish (and warm!).
Throw on a Shawl, Cape, or Bolero
Cover-ups (from moto coats to cool capes) are definitely in right now. Any type of topper would be an optimal choice for a plus-size winter bride for warmth and for modesty concerns.

Think About Fabrics and Textures
If you’re marrying in the summer, it may be too hot to wear a big Duchess-satin ball gown with a tulle overskirt — but winter brides don’t have that problem! Plus-size girls can experiment with different fabrics, embellishments, and textures without worrying about breaking a sweat down the aisle.
