Happy first of December! We’re kicking off the month with a wintry lineup of the latest designer looks for December brides. Drawn from the latest selection of Fall/Winter 2018 collections, these ten winter wedding dresses embody the magic, sparkle, and elegance of the season.

Unlike those tying the knot during the summer months, December brides can take advantage of heavier fabrics and sumptuous cuts. Ashi Studio has created a stunning lace number with a daring contrast between long sleeves and a deep-V neckline, and a peplum-like waistline with a dramatic cascade of ruffles. Berta also features a plunging neckline, which is balanced by demure appliques. Although it’s not a wedding dress, we also love Francesca Miranda’s lace bridal jumpsuit for a rehearsal dinner or an outfit change for the wedding reception and afterparty.

Inbal Dror gives the phrase “Ice Queen” a new meaning with a silvery peek-a-boo lace gown, featuring a structured bodice for a regal effect. And if a full-on ballgown is what you’re looking for, Ines Di Santo’s classic lace ballgown is the ultimate winter wedding dress for a December princess bride.

For a bit of snowy texture, Isabelle Armstrong has designed a gorgeous gown that seamlessly blends modernity with a more conservative silhouette. Our winter wedding dress pick from Lihi Hod showcases a similar texture, but with a more fluid cut – a gown that evokes the feeling of a mid-winter night’s dream. Reem Acra’s romantic two-tone dress is another beautifully ethereal option.

Brides who prefer the curve-hugging appeal of Pronovias will love the latest 2018 collection, with an exquisite gown decked in beading and a plumed mermaid skirt. Finally, what says “winter wedding” more than a statement-making bridal cape? Zuhair Murad has produced yet another example of couture perfection with a show-stopping lace number that will leave your guests speechless.
