4 Must-Have Wearable Accessories for Your February Wedding

February is in the middle of winter, and there is a good chance you will be exposed to the elements for at least a little while on your wedding day. If you are getting married in February, you should invest in the following clothing items:

  • Coat or Shawl: Any February bride needs a stylish coat or shawl to cover her shoulders and stay warm. Your coat or shawl will come in handy when you take wedding photos outside and when you walk outside from the ceremony location to the reception location.
  • Leggings or Tights: When the temperature is at or below freezing, layering is your best friend. Wearing leggings or tights will keep you warm throughout your wedding day. Most wedding dresses are floor-length; therefore, you can hide any undergarments you wear for warmth.
  • Proper Shoes: You will want to wear closed-toed shoes at your February wedding. If you will be walking through snow or mud to take photos, you might consider bringing boots or comfortable sneakers that will most likely be hidden by your long wedding dress.
  • Coverings for Your Bridesmaids: If you want your bridesmaids to look uniform, you should pick a matching warm garment for your bridesmaids to wear. Your bridesmaids could wear matching faux fur wraps, or they could even wear matching shawls in a contrasting shade to your own shawl or covering.

You will be warm and cozy on your wedding day if you remember these must-have items. By planning ahead, you can avoid being too cold at your February wedding.

3 Must-Have Personal Items for Your February Wedding

A February bride can wear all the necessary layers to stay warm, but there are additional must-have personal items she needs to remember on her wedding day, such as:

  • Chapstick: Cold weather often causes dry skin and chapped lips. Chapped lips may even crack or start to bleed in extreme cases. You or a bridesmaid should carry chapstick to ensure that there are no dry or cracked lips in any wedding photos.
  • Mints: Mints are an essential item on your wedding day. Make sure you have a mint right before the ceremony so that your breath is fresh for the big kiss.
  • Hand Warmers: You and your wedding party will need hand warmers, especially if you are going to take wedding photos outside in February. The groomsmen can hide the hand warmers in their back pockets when the photos are being taken.

Your February wedding is not complete without these must-have personal items. From avoiding chapped lips to regulating the temperature of your extremities, you must be prepared to combat the cold.
