This is a good time of year because all of the holiday collections are out.  You could also get away with wearing a short, sparkly dress with opaque black tights.

Macy’s, Nordstrom Rack, Bloomingdales, Banana Republic, even Ann Taylor would be good.

Any cocktail dress with a faux fur shrug thing. Or a really nice blazer. Tights are always an option too.

ETA: if the wedding is in ON…I’d opt for a really nice pant suit, or a long dress (if the wedding is formal enough for one). The perks of long dresses and pant suits are that you can secretly wear leggings underneath for an extra layer. (Which I am SO doing for my wedding next year, haha)

People go out all year round in all sorts of weather. Wear whatever is appropriate for the degree of formality of the wedding.  I presume the venue is heated.

Wear outerwear that will make it comfortable to get there dress coat, tall boots, gloves etc.

Well, there is no such thing as overdressed, however if you aren’t sure about the dress code, the time of the event should dictate appropriate attire.  I actually prefer winter events, you can get away with so much more dramatic clothing choices and colors than what summer allows, plus the winter accessories trump summer for my any day!  If it were me, I would look for something like this, in a buff and chocolate combo with some dreamy leather knee boots and a wooley, drapey wrap instead of a coat.

I like the sparkly dress/tights idea. Last year I worethr exact same thing –  a sparkly black lacy cocktail dress and black tights to my company Christmas party.
