You may be wondering… what is a bridal bolero? A bridal bolero is a shrug or jacket for the bride-to-be. While most bridal boleros are made in white to match the gown, that isn’t always the case. In fact, most boleros can be made in your favorite shade to add an unexpected pop of color. Now that you know what a bridal bolero is, read on to find out three reasons why you need one PLUS browse a few of our hand-picked favorites by Uptown Urban Craft. Enjoy!
3 Reasons Why You Need a Bridal Bolero
1. A bridal bolero will keep you warm. If you’re a fall or autumn wedding bride, you know how unpredictable the weather can be. Even the smallest bolero will give you a lightweight layer of warmth to keep you from freezing your you-know-what off.
2. A bridal bolero will cover you up. A bolero is a great way to cover your shoulders for religious reasons. It’s also a terrific way to keep you feeling confident during the ceremony, since a bolero can help hold everything in place. No wardrobe malfunctions or corset slippage during the ceremony!
3. It can add a POP of color. A bolero can add color to your look. We mentioned that most boleros can be made in any color fabric so you can match your groom’s tie, coordinate with your bridesmaids or wear a bolero in your favorite shade of pink. If you opt for a white bolero, you can still add a pop of color with a brightly colored fabric or heirloom-quality brooch.
The boleros shown above – and below – are beautifully handcrafted by Laura, the designer and owner of Uptown Urban Craft. Laura is passionate about creating a custom bolero for your special day with plenty of styles from which to choose. Check out a few additional styles we adore:
