If you live in a tropical climate, like us, getting married during the cooler months is the goal. So once you’ve locked down the location, caterer, photographer, and band for your magical "winter" wedding, it's now time for the hard part – finding the perfect wedding dress to accompany the cool and windy weather.

With a large number of gown designs and designers out there, you’d think finding a once-in-a-lifetime dress would be easy. However, that’s rarely the case. Because as brides, we understand that you want to be the center of attention, and that your dress should accentuate your best features while making you look like a goddess who can eat however much she wants. 

Which is why if you’re still trying to figure out what wedding dress to pick for your special day, fret not, because below we have the five biggest winter wedding dress trends!
