What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

Last weekend we went to a wedding of one of our favorite couple’s in Northern Virginia. It was nice to make a trip back to Virginia as we are only able to go back home a few times a year now that we’re living in Austin. We got to see both of our families and a bunch of our friends at the wedding. The groom is one of our best friends from high school, so Dom was a groomsman. The groom met his new wife (!!) post-college through mutual friends, they started dating soon after meeting each other, and the rest is history!

As much as I love weddings, the one thing I struggle with for winter weddings is figuring out what to wear. I always worry about being too cold, looking ghostly pale, or finding a color that works for both the season and the wedding formality. While I have several wedding guest dresses for summer and spring weddings, I had only attended two winter weddings prior to this one. For one of those weddings I ordered a dress from Rent the Runway, and for the second I bought a dress.

This time around I didn’t find any dresses I loved on Rent the Runway, so I decided to order a few dresses from various stores and see how they looked. Below is my round up of dresses to wear for a semi-formal or formal winter wedding, for those of you who need some inspo!
