I think your dress looks super cute on you! I’d love to see you in a natural fur (for the rich brown color, not necessarily real fur) stole. You could drape it around your neck and have it come down over your shoulders, but it wouldn’t hide the beautiful lace detail on the back of your dress the way a cardigan or shawl might. And it would look so lux!

First of all, you look great and that is a beautiful dress! So long as there is heat in both places I doubt there should be any problem with feeling cold and depending on the size of your wedding, once you get a bunch of people in the same room it tends to get pretty warm. You won’t look ridiculous in a sleeveless dress in the winter – lots of ladies rock completely strapless regardless of the time of year. If you were trying to get married outside in the winter without anything over top that wouldn’t be practical but for just some pics it shouldn’t be too bad. My cousin got married on a day when it was -30 in a strapless dress and she wore a white fur stole and white mukluks for outdoor pics but didn’t need anything indoors.

I second the idea of a fur stole or little fur cape in brown or white! Doesn’t have to be real fur. The dress is perfect for a winter wedding, love the detail on the back

You look amazing!! I was also a winter bride in Feb in Canada and it was around the freezing point. I did have a 3/4 length sleeve on my dress and honestly it makes little difference! Inside I was totally fine and outside I was cold! that little extra bit of lace really does nothing to keep you warm lol. I would also second the idea of getting a faux fur or something for outdoors. I did some pics with the fur, some without.

storygirl:  I am getting married this Saturday. I was in Charming Charlie’s this weekend helping my mom pick out jewelry and came across this beautiful fur/stole. I’m planning on wearing it for a few outside pics. It was only $35.

I got married in Feburary (during winter storm Maximus ha) and I wore an off-white cape over my one shoulder dress. It was perfect for outside and inside I’m definitely glad I didn’t have sleeves or anything because it was HOT in the venue.

I’m making a cape for December wedding. My Mother-In-Law freaked when she saw my strapless dress.  She had to be reminded that Midwestern US winter is not Northern Sweden winter. We’re around 50° F here now, she’s around 6° F.
