Winter weddings in the Alps are pretty much guaranteed to be three things; Pretty beautiful, deeply memorable, and COLD! If you’ve chosen a winter wedding you’ll be needing some appropriate accessories. Your love will keep you warm, but some stylish accessories to go with your amazing adventure wedding dress (or jumpsuit!) will keep you warmer. I’m thinking less delicate veils and Jimmy Choo stilettos, more elegant-yet-cosy knits and statement jewelry – practical, yet gorgeous in your photos.

Just because you’re getting wrapped up to say ‘I-do’ on a glittering mountain or a frosted lake, doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel like the adventurous snow queen you are. There is a huge range of accessories out there to help you feel special and bridal at your winter wedding, from high street to hand made.

I’ve gathered some of the best winter wedding accessories that will look great, help fend off the elements, and that you might wear again!

Bridal Jumpers & Knitwear

Choosing the right bridal jumper or knitwear item to go with your winter wedding outfit will add a layer of much-needed warmth, and an extra level of detail we can play with in your photos. There’s something for every budget and every adventure included here.


Etsy has some great handmade options for different kinds of knitted and wool jumpers and shrugs if you want to support a small business:

On The High Street

Don’t discount the high street when looking for bridal knitwear or jumpers for your winter wedding! I’ve selected a few great options, all for under 60 euros.

Try ASOS for some really cute white & ivory sweaters:


Lulus has its very own bridal range, but there are also some beautiful pieces in their normal collection too. Try these knitwear pieces with statement sleeves, or backless features to show off details of your outfit.

Shop the Lulus cream backless sweater and balloon sleeve ivory sweater.

Cover Ups, Wraps and Shrugs

If jumpers are less your style or if you are looking for something that you can wear for short periods of time just to keep the edge off, a cover up or wrap might be for you.

Bear in mind that they won’t keep you warm enough if you are planning to head out into the snow, but they do add an extra layer and can add detail to your winter wedding outfit.


Bridal wear shop BHLDN have a great range of different cover ups, whether you are looking for fur or feathers, they have lots of different styles available.

Winter Wedding Coats

At some point during your winter wedding, you might have to get bundled up in your coats! Whether that’s while you’re walking (or sledding, or skiing…) between locations or if you’re at altitude, I’ve found a selection of winter coats perfect for the adventure bride.

Winter Coats For Adventure Brides

If you’re looking for a winter jacket that you can wear for future adventures, why not consider something like Patagonia’s Nano Puff or their down jacket available at Backcountry or REI for couples in the USA:

If you are based in the UK, you can also find some great outdoor jackets at Ellis Brigham & Blacks, including the Patagonia Nano Puff, this white Patagonia Ski Jacket, this ski jacket from Salomon or this insulated parka from Merrell

Style & Substance

We turn once again to the high street for some winter coats for the style-conscious bride. If you’re in need of a hard-core, technical winter coat, the previous section is probably the one you want. If you want a warm and fashionable extra layer, you might find what you’re looking for here.

If you are looking for something bespoke, there are some fantastic designers on Etsy making bridal coats, jackets and even capes:

Alternatively, try classic high street options such as ASOS for a YAS white blazer (perfect for a shorter length dress!) and a Collusion long line fur coat or BHLDN for a fur wrap.

Hats, Gloves & Scarves

For practicality on your adventure winter wedding day, you’ll probably need a hat, scarf and gloves combo. Why not treat yourself to something new?
