    Bridal Cover Ups for Winter Weddings

    November 26, 2013  8 Comments

    As it starts to get ridiculously chilly outside — especially here in the Midwest — we thought it was a great opportunity to share bridal cover ups for winter weddings. When A & I got married, we chose an early December wedding in Michigan. We lucked out with pretty gorgeous weather for winter, along with a little sprinkle of snow as we exited the church after the ceremony. I chose a faux fur stole and it was the perfect accessory to keep my shoulders warm. However, anytime from October through March is anyone’s best guess at how chilly you will or will not be in your wedding gown. And, like Halloween when your mother made you wear a jacket over your costume, no one wants to cover up their gorgeous dress. In this post, you’ll find a few hand-picked suggestions for bridal cover ups that will warm you up without ruining your style. Plus, we’re giving away a wearable item for the bride to wear while running errands, lounging, and wearing on the honeymoon by ArenLace. Read on to find out more…

    2. Sequin Jacket

    I don’t know where this specific jacket is from, but this sequin jacket is cute. I also love this short sleeved sequin jacket and this cashmere sparkly sweater in charcoal or gold.

      The flower girl robes are so cute. I would have never thought of that, but I’m sure the flower girls would love to have one just like the bride and bridesmaids.

      I love the sweatshirts with “bride” on them and also the robes that have “Mrs. ___” and “est___”. I think I’ll definitely invest in one, or both, of those!
