A winter wedding is suitable for those who do not want to wait until summer, do not like the heat, or want to celebrate when pure white snow is everywhere. But it is important to provide clothes for the bride and groom, so that the outfits look not only beautiful, but also the young ones feel warm in them on the street.
Wrap for the bride for a winter wedding
If the bride has a classic white dress, then the cape can be of the same color. If the young woman does not want to hide her thin waist, then let her wear a bolero cape. To make it warmer, it is better to sew this new thing out of fur. You can make the main product from a material with a small pile, and trim the cape and the bottom of the sleeves with white fur with a large pile.
Redraw the pattern. As you can see, it is quite simple and for one bolero vest for a winter wedding you only need 1 piece of a pattern. But since this is a fur bolero vest, you will need not only the main, but also the lining fabric. White satin crepe is perfect as the latter. Take this canvas and cut out exactly the same detail from it.
- If you have faux fur, then fold the base and lining fabric right sides together and sew on a typewriter so that the neck remains unstitched. Then turn the bolero through it. And if it is natural fur, then you need to sew these two fabrics on your hands.
- When you turn the cape for the bride to the front side, sew the sleeves that were previously sewn on the sidewalls here. Now you need to decorate your product with fur with a large pile, sewing it onto the sleeves and through the entire bolero from the middle of one part of the neckline on the back to the other.
- Also, winter wedding clothes for the bride can be replenished with a cape. This product will also be warmer at a winter wedding. Vary the length of the cape at your discretion. If you want the resulting sleeves to be up to the elbow, then you can sew the same cape as in the photo. If the sleeves are longer, then the cape itself should be longer.
- You will determine this figure when you measure with a measuring tape from the beginning of the shoulder to the place on the arm where the drape is. In this case, it is 30 cm. But you can also make 40 or 50 cm. Look at the pattern how you will need to fold the fabric in half. Then you draw on it such a ring, which will be the main product. The inner semicircle will also come in handy. Cut out a collar from it.
- Decide on its length and width 10 cm. Transfer the pattern to the fur, cut out the base of the future cape from it. Now take the collar blank, fold it in half lengthwise with the right sides to each other. Sew small cuts on the wrong side. Turn the collar over your face and place the top of the cape between the two pieces. Sew the collar to the main garment.
To fasten the drape, secure the loop and button or other type of fastening at the top. You can use a special one for fur.
You can sew a longer cape so that the bride's arms are completely covered. Then first determine the length of the future product, then put it aside on the pattern. See how a darker mink looks good on lighter fabric. In this case, the dress may not be classic white, but to match the trim.
Here's what else a drape for a bride can be.In this case, you don't even need to make a fastener. The pattern here is the same as in the previous case. But you need to sew a cape with a lining and then sew the side cuts so that you get such a ring. Then you will sew a ring from the tape of the appropriate color, which will help to gather the cape at the front.
Such a cape of the bride will effectively hold on the shoulders, as in the left photo.
And on the right photo there is a warm cape with a hood. It is also quite simple to sew. First, you will make a semblance of a long cape, then sew a hood here.
Provide a drawstring to secure this garment. You can also sew a clutch, which also looks impressive. Then the winter wedding will be great, because the bride will be the most beautiful at this celebration and she will be comfortable in her outfits.
The bride can warm herself as she wishes. If she has a light coat, then let her put it on. Various scarves, stoles are appropriate. The main thing is that the young should be warm in such a dress. Now you can buy beautiful light warm fishnet tights, stockings. These will not only decorate her legs, but also warm them.
As for shoes, as this is a winter wedding, it is not recommended to walk in shoes in the snow. Therefore, short ankle boots are perfect for this purpose; you can buy them with fur trim.
How to dress for a winter wedding groom?
The beloved must also be sufficiently insulated. But unlike the bride, the groom will have a suit that is not as cold as a dress. Therefore, pondering over the dressing of the groom, it is possible to advise him to put on a sheepskin coat or coat that will complement the image of the spouse. Let him attach a boutonniere made in winter style to the lapel of his jacket, then the image will be complete.
To complement the image of the bride, you also need to take care of the bouquet for her. Since this is a winter wedding, the floral arrangement should be in line with this time of year.
