We featured a Real Wedding where the bride wore a light pink silk scarf with her wedding gown, and we remember it like the post was yesterday. The bride, Debbie, wanted a simple, sweet, and elegant wedding day look, so her light pink scarf was the perfect thing to tie into her personal style. If you’re looking for an accessory to tie into your bridal ensemble, perhaps a silk scarf is just what you need for a fun pop of color! And, if you’re not sure where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. I love scarves and wear them as often as possible. But before I became scarf-savvy, I had that feeling where I would see pretty scarves at the store and feel like I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off… you know?
That’s why today we are helping to nudge you a little into the right scarf-savvy direction with a few tips + tricks on how to wear a scarf. Wearing a scarf around your neck isn’t the only way to work it; you can wear it around your neck, as a headband, as a wrap, as a cuff bracelet, styled into your braided hairstyle, and more. You can even decorate your reception or ceremony site with scarves… your love nest, too! Read on for plenty of scarf-filled goodness compiled just for you after the jump!
How to Wear a Scarf with your Gown
The most popular way to wear a scarf is worn around one’s neck. If you’re braving a cold wintry wedding, consider a silk scarf for a pop of color or a pretty pattern in lieu of a heavy wrap. It won’t keep you as warm as wool, but it may just be the lightweight accessory piece for which you’ve been looking. Besides, if you get a chill I’m sure your groom will be happy to lend you his suit coat, right? ;)
Here is one example how to wear a scarf with your gown. This is Debbie, the bride we mentioned early in this post:

The pearl bouquet wrap is one trend train I’m hopping onto with both heels! A pearl bouquet wrap is an simple solution to a traditionally plain bouquet wrap typically made of satin or lace. A pearl wrap can be added to the satin or lace for a glammed up look, no matter how simple or extravagant it may be. Spotted via Style Me Pretty with gorgeous floral design by Flowers by Felicia and photography by Kristin Weaver.

If your wedding venue has a no-petal-throwing policy, there are plenty of lovely handmade alternatives. One such example is a flower girl pomander (also known as a kissing ball) which is typically a ball of flowers secured with a ribbon handle. We spotted this ‘Everlasting Memories’ flower girl pomander via SiboDesigns as one sweet example:
