Winter weddings are ready-made for gorgeous photos, and winter bridesmaid dresses are no exception. As with shopping for winter wedding dresses, you do need to plan for the cold temperatures that accompany a winter wedding's picture-perfect snowy backdrop. After all, No one wants a shivering bridal party. Setting a date between December and March shouldn't limit your options when it comes to bridesmaid dresses, though. In fact, a cold-weather wedding provides plenty of opportunities to get creative with long sleeves, elegant necklines and faux fur wraps.

Many winter brides also choose a color palette that complements the season, playing up elegant jewel tones and picking bridesmaid dresses in flattering velvet textures or with pretty beaded embellishments. Twinkling lights at a winter wedding reception reflect beautifully off sequin details, so keep that in mind for an easy way to add glam to your party. Wintry shades such as dusty blue, navy blue, gray and silver hues are also popular, especially if you want your bridesmaids to mix and match for the big day.

This list of 25 cold-weather bridesmaid dresses includes a variety of stylish options in winter's hottest colors, so you can curate a look that's unique to your winter wonderland.
