Why not?
(but also – why does your FI get such a major say in your dress selection?)

I’m doing a tea-length dress in winter – similar concept (skin exposure in winter), except it’s not like I can pull on a sweater if I get chilly. 😛

[ETA] One more thing – in your original post, it seemed to me that you were saying you’d change your wedding date over a dress. That (to me) isn’t really a valid reason for changing your date.
Wear what you want, when you want… anyone who says something about it has too much time on their hands (or a love of turtlenecks)

I think it can totally work! When you try on your dress, ask to try it with lots of different types of veils! You will be surprised at how much a veil can change the look of your gown. My sister had a similar dilemma. She had always pictured satin and sleeves for her winter wedding, and then she fell in love with a strapless lace gown! She ended up choosing a longer veil that fell over her shoulders and it completely transformed her look! 

Its important to remember that this is your only day to wear the dress of your dreams, so pick the one that you love! You can always work with accessories to make it fit your vision! Have fun and good luck!

You can DEFINITELY wear a lace dress in winter!

@anemone681:  I think that is a fine look for a winter wedding. I don’t think that any particular gown would be wrong at any time of year.

@anemone681: I think lace is beautiful for Winter. Go with your heart.

I’m wearing a lace-backed dress for my winter wedding in three weeks. (Granted, I’m in Texas so it could be 70 degrees, but still.)

It’s beautiful and can definitely be winter appropriate. Go for it! You could always add a cute wintry accessory, like faux fur shrug or something. No need to change your date

You can definitely pull it off for the winter…I mean people wear sleeveless dresses all the time in the winter so I don’t think a backless would be at all inappropriate for the season.

@CakeyP:  It’s not like her FI is telling her to get a style she hates. I wanted to look beautiful for my husband at my wedding, and if I knew he preferred a style (that I also liked) why wouldn’t I want to find a dress like that?

@mg1363:  I was just worried that she might have only looked at that one style, because of him (and didn’t look at other styles just for herself). I asked mostly out of concern, but you have a point – she did say she loves the style, too. I didn’t mean any harm by it!

Honestly, I love backless dresses, so I really don’t have any qualms about them!

My cousin got married last year on December 22 and she wore a backless Maggie Sottero. I can never remember exactly which one it was, but I definitely think you can. I mean, how much warmth is the back really going to add anyway?

Wear it!  I’d say do it in white, but put in some red lipstick and a dark eye, FAB!
