Well, for one, it’s best to try on a lot of styles. Many on here can vouch that you usually end up with something completely different then you think you will. The main thing I would consider is fabrics, I think you could def. get away with ruffles in the right gown for a winter wedding, however, don’t limit yourself on the “style” see what you like, but know that once you go to try stuff on, the likelihood is high you’ll change your mind 😉

This was my ultimate fall/winter gown

It was my runner up. I had been drooling over it since 2007, tried it on, I loved it, but it just wasn’t the “one.” 🙂

I think both dresses can be appropriate for a winter wedding, especially with the right accessories, but i do think the monique dress looks more “winter” to me then the ruffled dress, but its due more to the fabric and style. The satin, lace, and long sleeves seems more winter then light and airy ruffles and spaghetti straps.

I think the accessories and overall feel of your venue will dictate/compliment the winter look you are going for. I think ruffles are extremely romantic by nature.

Totally agree with the ladies. Try different styles.

I think ruffles can be gorgeous in winter! Check out this inspiration board: the ruffled dress fits in beautifully.

Some of the unusual ruffled dresses in this post remind me of winter too:

Particularly the one on the right here; possibly not technically a wedding dress but just for inspiration 🙂 With floral lace it might look a bit spring-insipred but if they were subtly snowflake shaped it could be perfect.

If you love ruffles but don’t want to commit to a full ruffled skirt, you could try a ruffled bolero like this:

Hello snow queen!

I think ruffles can be great but i am biased and love the first dress…as I am wearing it during my winter wedding, lol.
