Wintry wedding glam that wows
By Paloma Naderi
Every bride wants to shine on her wedding day, but there’s something about a winter bride that has us thinking sparkle—lots and lots of sparkle. A winter wedding is not for everyone, so it takes a special gal to pull on a faux fur bolero over her strapless gown and swap the dainty bracelet for long, satin gloves. We like to think these daring winter belles deserve a little reward for braving the elements in a ball gown, and our selection of glitzy and glamorous wedding accessories would be just the perfect gift. With shimmering shop windows and glittering snowflakes as our inspiration, we’ve rounded up a stunning set of glamorous goodies to adorn every ankle, wrist and lock at your winter wedding.

FIT FOR A WINTER WONDERLAND
Badgley Mischka makes some of the most jaw-dropping designer pumps for brides around and this sexy peep-toe pump is both special and affordable, so head over to Zappos Couture to snag these special sparklers at a very nice price. And what pronounces winter glamour more strongly than a fluffy white muff? For the right bride, we think this faux fur option from David’s Bridal would be a great way to both keep your hands warm during the ceremony and stand in as a pretty replacement for a pricey bouquet of amaryllis.
For the understated bride who prefers a subtle pop of bling to glitzier options, these jeweled hair pins from Anna Bellagio and peacock feather brooch would be gorgeous perched in an updo or curly half up-half down look. Just the right amount of dazzle to show off your fabulous do and get you some attention, too!
BEYOND THE RING
We love standout wedding jewelry for your big day, but it’s important that it’s subtle enough not to detract from your gown, ring and brilliant smile. The gorgeous winter-themed snowflake pendant and star-spangled bangle from Swarovski are bright but not too bold. Not into diamonds and pearls? These sweet bow stud earrings from Tiffany are a lovely option for your wedding and will transition great into everyday use.
