In fact, a cold-weather event offers plenty of opportunities to get creative with long sleeves, maxi skirts and cozy bridesmaid shawls.
To prove it, we've gathered the best winter bridesmaid dresses from traditional and new dress retailers, including stylish options from Birdy Grey, JessaKae, Lulus and more.

What Should Bridesmaids Wear for a Winter Wedding?
For winter weddings, look for dresses with rich and warm fabrics (like velvet, silk and satin) and choose a bridesmaid color palette that complements the season, including elegant jewel tones and gowns with embellishments. Wintry shades like emerald green, navy blue, dusty blue, burgundy and black are all popular for December, January and February weddings, or you can mix and match hues if you prefer the look of mismatched bridesmaid gowns.
As for the style of your winter wedding party dresses, there are gowns with long sleeves, high necklines and maxi-length skirts—but those aren't your only choices. Short sleeves, sleeveless silhouettes or even strapless necklines can look equally beautiful for the winter season (just make sure to recommend a faux fur wrap or shawl for your besties to layer with).
