As the Coronvirus pandemic sweeps the world many engaged couples are finding themselves having to delay their spring and summer weddings to the fall and winter months. Many brides are now asking how they can transform their summer wedding plans into a seasonally appropriate fall or winter wedding, and particularly how they can re-style a light, summer wedding dress for a fall or winter ceremony. Fear not! At Genevieve Rose Atelier we simply adore a cooler-weather wedding and think there are many styling advantages to marrying in the fall or winter. Here are some of our favorite simple and affordable ways to transform your spring wedding look into a very chic and winter-worthy outfit.
One of the easiest ways to winterize a wedding look is by rethinking your hair accessories. Instead of opting for fresh flowers or natural hairstyle with no accessories, choose a veil or headband in a luscious wintery fabric such as velvet and with a little bit or texture or sparkle. Or choose a more substantial accessory like a pillbox hat or hatband to embrace the polished and refined glamour of a winter wedding. Here are some of our favorite Genevieve Rose Atelier wedding hair accessories in velvet and our best-selling (and forever favorite) pillbox hat styles:
Of course you might need to add some actual warmth to a fall or winter wedding look but that absolutely doesn't mean buying a new dress! There are lots of wonderful and stylish cover-up options available now for brides. Some, like a stylish coat or faux fur cape can be worn just for your journey to the chapel and for outdoor photography. Other styles, such as a beautiful sheer cape or - our favorite new bridal category, and one favored by Kate Middleton - chic knitwear, can be worn for the entirety of your ceremony and reception.

You can also add a little winter glamour (and warmth ) with these unexpected bridal accessories: add a pair of long lace or point d'esprit gloves and switch your summer sandals for a pair of chic ankle boots in a neutral shade or even metallic to add a little sparkle to the season. And if you're finding your favorite blooms are unavailable in the cooler months, why not swap a traditional bouquet for a lovely faux fur hand muff.
