    Well since i am getting married in February 2012 and it could well possibly snow, im a teeeeney bit excited incase it does as i think my pictures would like fab with a bit of snow. Although i dont like the idea of it being thick of snow, icey or slushy.

    So i have bought myself a pair of ivory and red wellies just incase :)

    Anyone else braving the grand old month of February???

    Red wellies would be ace!

    Hard to know what the weather will be like, but then it can be hard to know in june!! My parents got married in Jan 40 years ago.. their bridesmaids had velvet skirts and the little one a coat with a fur trim.. sweet (well apart from the fact that they were green velvet skirts, orange coat and my mum had pink carnations in her flowers! (She said she anted cream roses but couldnt afford.. not sure the whole themed thing was so big 40 years ago!)

    What colours are you having?? a little jacket may come in helpful just in case?

    When you click the link you have posted they are the same as mine although mine are red with ivory ribbon, I love them so much i want to wear them now. I think i would get some funny looks though :D

    Im having my bridesmaid in red with ivory shoes and im the opposite ivory dress with red shoe/wellies.

    Here is a pic of my bridesmaid dress. The dress without the straps.

    And im having my flowers girls in this dress with a little fluffy shrug incase they are to cold.

    Oh your bridesmaid and flower girls dresses are lovely! They will look amazing if it snowed with the red :D

    We got married in May, and it snowed! I had to buy wellies from the supermarket on the morning of the wedding! :lol: They only had one pair in my size so I didn't get to choose what the looked like either! All good fun :D

    Hopefully if will snow but not too heavy as we are going to have some fun shots in the snow with all my bridesmaid and flower girls. Might even get a shot of the dress and wellies.

    I really cant wait now and wish it would hurry up, knowing my luck if will end up snowing really heavy and the church we are getting married at is on a very narrow little country road and my cars will never get up the lane!!!

    What will be will be i suppose :)

    Funnily enough I was only thinking the other day that no-one on here seemed to be a 'winter' bride, but now we have you!
    Like the others I think it would be fab if it were snowy esp for the pics, as long as you are prepared with wellies, which of course, you are  x

    Make sure you invite people with 4x4 cars, just in case! :D

    Sounds amazing, I love the thought of a winter wedding.

    I love the red! Wedding wellies are awesome. Helen on here had some for her wedding in Canada and they looked fab. I don't think hers were specifically wedding ones but just seriously cool patterned ones. A winter wedding is brilliant, I was having a Sep wedding but am now May but if i'd not been pregnant would happily have done winter, just don't fancy trying that quickly to get back into my dress or juggling the whole prospect of feeding a baby whilst wedged in a corset!

    Snow would be wonderful. All dreamy now!

    This is from the mirror online

    BRITS have been warned of another big freeze this winter – with snow falling as early as October.
    The premature frost, with below average temperatures over the next few months, was predicted by forecasters Exacta Weather.
    Expert James Madden said on its website: “As we head towards winter, I expect to see the first signs of some moderate to heavy snowfalls as early as October or November in certain parts of the UK.
    I expect December, January, and February to experience below-average temperatures, with the heaviest snowfalls occurring within the time frame of November to ­January across many parts of the UK.”

    Hopefully this does not effect any of us brides who are getting married this year or beginning of next year as we may need a few husky's to get us there and then when we arrive we will look like snow queens!! :huh:

    Well since im getting married on what would have been my nans and grandad wedding anniversary i let her choose the colours. Good job she has good taste. I wanted every colour possbile and could not decide (So much easier when someone does it for you) so it actually fits well with the wintery feel. x
