Lucky for you, we’ve gathered some of our favorite styles that fit every month of the year. Read along to discover ideas on which of our glamorous and boho wedding dresses match the season of your wedding day.
Wedding Dresses for Winter
With the brisk weather during the winter season, dresses typically require the option for a little more coverage. Here are some of our favorite winter wedding gowns with sleeves.
Depending on the date of this month, your big day can land in between the fall or winter season, allowing you to either add in fall themes or plan for a more festive winter celebration. But if you’re leaning more towards planning a winter wonderland themed event, Style Roma is a shimmering lace winter wedding gown that will make all your holiday dreams come true. Crystals, pearls, rhinestones, glass, and bugle seeds trace throughout the bodice replicating shimmering snowflakes on a winter night. The full A-line silhouette features a cascade tulle skirt, adding drama and volume to your bridal look. Re-embroidered lace appliques with sequins trail all around this gown and continue down the timeless chapel train.
Simple, yet fanciful, this illusion long sleeve wedding dress is a perfect match for the first month of the year. The long illusion lace sleeves on Style Surfside are perfect for the brisk winter weather, while the soft embroidered lace mimics snowflakes and adds a graceful touch to this design. Elegant floral lace appliques give this winter gown timeless, swoon-worthy details that will match the cool season perfectly.
For the month of love and romance, this long sleeve wedding dress with a detachable overskirt is the perfect fit. Style Hydra is a luxurious mermaid dress that exudes romance with its form fitting silhouette and see-through bodice. The illusion long sleeves feature lavish lace and beaded details. This gown includes a tiered detachable overskirt which gives your wedding day a 2-in-1 look, easily taking you from ceremony to reception. The sparkly Swarovski crystal details all along the gown make it a glamorous choice for a Valentine’s day event.
Spring Bridal Gowns
With the sweet scent of the spring season comes floral inspired gowns that go beautifully with the fresh floral blooms that are in season.
For a month that falls in between the end of winter and the beginning of spring, it only seems right for a bride to tie the knot in a gown that embraces the transitions of the seasons. Style Monaco is decorated with shimmering re-embroidered 3D floral lace appliques with sequins. These stunning embellishments replicate springtime blooms while the dainty off-the-shoulder sleeves allow for a sweet coziness once the sun goes down and the weather becomes a bit brisk.
The lace illusion cathedral train is decorated with an exquisite floral lace design that embraces the spring season, while the sparkly beading adds a vintage winter touch.
With diamonds being the birthstone of April, it only seems right for this month’s bride to wed in something that is equally as glamorous. Style Valencia is a crystal beaded strapless mermaid wedding dress that shimmers with sparkles from top to bottom. Not only does this gown feature statement worthy metallic corded appliques, but also a stardust tulle fabric all throughout the design. The tulle adds out of this world faceted sparkles that will have you shining brighter than a diamond. If that isn’t quite enough shine for you, then you’ll love the specialty beaded details traced throughout the gown.
As the month of May comes near to summer, finding a gown that balances a bride’s mid season ceremony is a must. Consider the dreamy A-line skirt on Style Boheme that features soft re-embroidered lace appliques with sequins. This rustic gown is perfect for a boho bride getting married at an outdoor venue. The scoop front neckline is super flattering as it lengthens your neck and accentuates your collarbone while the illusion scoop back shows just a hint of skin. These carefree details let a bride embrace golden hour during the ceremony and the cool breeze during the evening reception.
Summer Wedding Dress Ideas
For our rustic brides that love lace details and plan on tying the knot at an outdoor venue, here are our favorite boho summer wedding dresses.
The month of June calls for a gown designed to look like a romantic midsummer night’s dream. Style Laguna is a boho lace gown featuring a soft net A-line skirt that flows elegantly during the light summer breeze. The floral lace appliques resemble June gardenia and other seasonal blooms. The sleeveless style and lightweight skirt makes it easy to stay cool during a warm June ceremony. Beaded details along the bodice add dreamy sparkle while the low keyhole back is the perfect finishing touch.
Light-weight and dreamy, Style Caspian is another perfect bridal gown for the summer season. Soft embroidered net fabric is paired with a flowing A-line silhouette to create a dreamy gown that is sure to keep you cool during your big day. Rustic summer brides will especially love the embroidered floral appliques that are fit for an outdoor summer ceremony (like an amazing beach wedding). There’s also a sexy hidden leg slit at the front skirt lining that allows you to show off your sun kissed skin elegantly.
For a bride that’s planning on embracing the last few weeks of summer, consider Style Alora, a long sleeve bridal gown. Crafted from an elegant floral patterned lace and long illusion bishop sleeves, this gown is the ultimate boho wedding dress for an end of summer celebration. Perfect for the warm day time ceremony and evening brisk soirées, the light-weight A-line skirt will make it easy to enjoy your day while also leaving you to look timeless as ever.
Wedding Gowns for the Fall Season
With the Autumn season comes a little more magic and sparkle. The cooler temperatures make this an ideal time to get married. Here are our favorite fall wedding gowns that are perfect for an end of the year celebration.
When it comes to an early fall wedding, a top choice amongst Val Stefani brides is Style Zia, a sparkly mermaid gown with a detachable train. For a daytime ceremony, consider including the romantic detachable tulle train that features lace detail along the hem for a grand walk down the aisle. Then in the evening, remove the train to reveal a beaded mermaid silhouette, perfect for dancing all night long. For the brisk evening reception, the soft tulle off-the-shoulder sleeves are sure to keep the bride cozy yet glamorous.
What could be better for the autumn season than a gown that’s adorned with romantic re-embroidered floral lace appliques? Style Lisbon is a floral lace wedding dress decorated with pearls, rhinestones, and crystals. The sleeveless style gives you a chance to embrace the romantic fall air, while the grand semi-cathedral train unfolds into an autumn shaped leaf. You’re sure to shine at your fall soiree.
For a ceremony that’s embracing the fall weather and all its beauty, Style Oralee, an organza and lace bridal dress, is a top pick for this season.
