I’m getting married in November in Boston, so it’ll be cold. I originally thought I wanted a tulle ballgown, but when I tried some on they seemed to summery to me (those ones did at least). I ended up with a taffeta ballgown that is much heavier than I was expected to pick, because it seemed to fit the season better.

I am in Australia so my winter wedding will happen in July… but to answer your question, it did influence my decision a fair bit. As Australia is a hot country, most wedding venues are only really set up for outdoors and whilst I do have an indoor ceremony location, all my photos will need to be taken outside (fingers crossed it doesnt rain too bad!). I ended up choosing a very heavy satin dress and I am wearing my grandmothers 70 year old vintage white fur bolero to keep warm (hope that doesnt upset anyone Embarassed). Cant post a pic as I am on DP’s computer as my ipad is playing up Frown

I haven’t really thought about it, to be honest–I haven’t been dress shopping, yet. I plan on having the consultant give me some input about it, though (as I’m drawn to more lacy/tulle gowns).

@evie19 her is my dress. Mae by Sottero & Midgley. You can see pics of it on other people on the website (and other Bees have worn it before), unfortunately I was too busy crying to remember to take a photo of me in it! I will also be adding cap sleeves to it for added protection from slippage as I have a small bust

This was my second choice dress and if I was having a winter wedding I think I’d have been more swayed to wear this dress.

@Evie19: LOL re Elizabeth Taylor.

I adored the top of that dress but the bottom was big, too big for me to handle I think, but would probably have been grateful of it for a Winter Wedding.

It meant that I felt free to get my dream dress, a huge taffeta ballgown.  It also meant that rather than looking for a cute simple shrug or anything, I was happy to accept my mom’s offer to let me wear my grandmother’s old mink stoal.  Finally, it meant that I refused to look for open-toe shoes.
