This one was a hard one for me.  Many of the dresses (especially floaty ones) looked too “summery” to me.  My wedding is in the middle of December and it’s black tie.

My dress is a shinyish satin with a bit of bling.  Perfect for winter!

@Millia:  do you have anymore specifics like time of day or if you like a certain shape?

My general advice for a Christmas wedding would to be to just think of it as winter, red and green is a little too on the nose for me. Look for dresses in heavier fabrics like satin. Silver elements or sashes add a wiintery look or a mohair sweater like the Duchess wore at her wedding.The slinkier dresses and the grecian chiffon dresses scream ‘summer beach wedding’ to me.

I could see this as an “ice princess” look

I am wearing a satin and tulle lace dress from Allure style 8764. Its satin under and lave overlay and I love it! I still have my new DB dress,its satin mermaid but just isnt what I wanted in the end. I love strapless but this lace one is sooo wonderful and has sparkle on the right shoulder:)) It will be in white, this is ivory sample. Remember you might like any type of material, you never know unless you try on everything! Organza is also nice. Mori Lee has tons!!

I am wearing Lazro 3018 which I love.  It is all satin and it is going to be in a bright white color.  There is a lot of bling around the belt so it will be great!

This is my dress:

 

 

I think the satin is a perfect material for a formal winter wedding and the beading is really elegant.

I would definitely go for a sating ballgown if you’re basing it on the season, but a better idea may be to base it on your venue.  If you’re getting married somewhere with a lodge/rustic feel, a sating ballgown may not be your best option.

i’ve got the sottero & midgley “sharon” dress … the beading and sparkly belt felt instantly christmassy to me!

My second choice was a satin number. I think if you avoid chiffon you can’t go wrong. Most dresses look great with a fur wrap x

I’ll be wearing a champagne satin Ronald Joyce gown. I was a little worried about the satin but its proving popular! Is anyone worried about the bad weather? I’m getting married in the English countryside so I’m guaranteed either rain or snow. I’m having nightmares about my satin dress staining or sucking up moisture like a sponge!!
