While winter may signal the end of wedding season for some of us, it doesn’t mean the end of wedding-related events! The nice thing about attending these chilly-weather celebrations—think bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelorette outings, and rehearsals—is that you can often get away with repurposing your holiday party dress. In the winter months, sequins, glitter, velvet, and even sparkles become totally appropriate for any and every wedding event. Here, we’ve rounded up seven looks we’ll be sporting underneath our parkas:

Like so many other ’90s trends, the slip dress is making a comeback! We love the way this simple shape looks for weddings. (It might have something to do with the dress Monica wore when she married Chandler…) The new slip dresses are still as no-fuss as ever, and the body-con silhouette is still anything but boring! Here, some of our favorites for 2014:

Bridesmaid’s got back! While wedding gowns with dramatic and elegant backs have been a major trend in 2013, after October’s Bridal Fashion Week we’re willing to bet that the backless trend will hit bridesmaid dresses in 2014. We love that it’s subtly sexy and more fashion forward than your traditional bridesmaid silhouette.

When it comes to getting a beautiful back for the big day, we recommend exfoliating with dirt. luxe salt scrub followed by a little Caudalie Divine Oil for seriously glowing skin.

Here, our favorite new ways to get the look.

As soon as you get engaged, people start asking you two questions: “Have you set a date?” and “What are your colors?” While figuring out the the answer to the latter question seems like it would be easy enough, it can be more challenging that one might think! First, if you love fashion, design, and beauty, choosing just a few colors can be tough, and it’s often surprising to find out that the colors you love wearing don’t always work well in wedding decor. Then there’s the tough reality that the colors you love might not be your future bride or groom’s favorite shades. If you’re struggling to pick your palette, here are our tips for choosing your wedding’s color story.
