Some brides couldn’t bear the thought of getting married in the midday sun on one of those baking hot days we (albeit rarely) get in the UK. Being warm and cosy and sipping mulled wine with fairy lights and candles flickering all around is some brides’ idea of perfection. Saying ‘I Do’ when there’s a chill in the air alongside the love, perhaps ideally with a light snowfall or the backdrop of the snow-capped mountain. An intimate gathering of your closest in front of a roaring fire – is this your idea of bliss? If so, you’re in luck, because TDR has a huge range of dresses that are versatile enough to be suitable for all seasons, but especially for a bright, crisp and cold winter celebration.
Winter fabrics are less chiffon and more mikado or brocade. You might consider sleeves or a cover-up in the form of a shrug, jacket or even a stole. Sleeves can be fixed or removable and we can work with you to perfect that big day look whatever your setting!
A winter wedding is every bit as charming and beautiful as its summer counterpart, if not more so. Plus, you might benefit from discounted rates with your venue or suppliers and there will be much more availability for those all-important planning appointments.
Here we highlight our favourite gowns for the perfect winter wedding.

A beautiful blend of soft tulle and textured tulle adds extra dimension and drama.
Cruz 20SC649 Sottero and Midgley
We’re not saying these 3-D floral long puff sleeves have to be the only feature on your wedding dress, but they certainly work the spotlight.
TATIANA Sassi Holford
Tatiana is recognisable by her undeniably romantic aesthetic thanks to the intricate re-embroidered lace adorning the entire gown. Crafted from Chantilly lace with re-embroidered laser cut chiffon flower applique, no detail has been spared when it came to creating Tatiana. Featuring a low v bodice with long puffed sleeves that flows into a full skirt for a little extra drama. Make a memorable entrance in this dramatic yet modern gown.

For added drama and to create a fuller silhouette, pair the dress with a lace-trimmed tulle overskirt. Shown in Ivory/Champagne.
