If you think the cold and snow give you any excuse to not dress appropriate for a winter wedding then you need to think again:
- No Wearing Uggs -- Strolling into a church looking like an Eskimo for a couple's nuptials even if it is only 20 degrees outside is not acceptable. Wear dressier boots to compliment your outfit and a little heel doesn't hurt.
- No Wearing a Long Dress (if you are not in the bridal party) -- I don't care if it keeps you warmer by covering up your legs. Not appropriate and it is likely to get wet from dragging in the snow. Choose a dress length more appropriate for your body type and pair it with the boots in number 1.
- No Wearing White -- Who cares if you blend in with the snow?!?!? It's the Bride's color. Don't wear it! Choose a jewel tone that works well with your skin tone and will be festive for the season.
