Since “Black Tie” is the next most formal wedding dress code – after White Tie – and usually means the wedding is an evening affair, a range of long evening gowns proposed by Adrianna Papell can be your choice for a winter wedding. The dresses come in luxe winter hues such as navy, cream, silver and gold with glamorous touch of beads and sequins for giving a little sparkling effect.

Black Tie Optional
The wording “Black Tie Optional” suggests something slightly less formal than Black Tie, where the ladies can opt for a long dress, a dressy suit, or a formal cocktail-length dress. For this season’s wedding venue, Adrianna Papell suggests various lines of cocktail dresses, including a range of sheath, blouson, and shift dresses with attractive detailing such as glittering beads and sequins, chic cape sleeves and flutter sleeves, as well as luxurious fabrics like lace, chiffon, and satin. Even there’s an eye-catching cape dress mixes a flowing cape back.
As for the long gowns, although they come in much simpler designs than for the Black Tie, the dresses still offer elegance and luxury to the wearer.
