There's nothing quite like a winter wedding. As if the holidays themselves aren't thrilling enough, throw in a wedding and you're sure to burst at the seams with excitement. But planning a wedding during the coldest months of the year isn't as picturesque as one might think. Between working around the holidays and preparing for the possibility of snow, there is actually a lot you have to take into consideration — the most important being the weather. While a light snow fall on your wedding day can could be nice, Jack Frost works in mysterious ways. There's always a chance that you could be faced with a snowstorm or below zero temperatures without much warning, which could leave you and your groom with a pretty big problem. Dealing with the snow in a wedding dress isn't really an ideal situation, right?
Aside from combatting the snow, the one thing you shouldn't have to worry about when facing Father Winter's signature chill on your big day is being cold. So with this in mind, we set out to find the best selection of coats you can actually wear over your wedding dress. Pairing a coat with a large white gown isn't as easy as one might think. Only so many colors, lengths, and styles can work when paired over layers and layers of white tulle, so it's important to choose wisely. From floor-grazing brocade options to short faux fur cropped styles, we've rounded up a selection of the best options on the market. Regardless of if you're a classic bride, a bohemian bride, or an eclectic bride, we believe we've found something for you.
