Are you a winter bride and you’re asking yourself… what am I supposed to wear over my wedding dress in winter? For the best cover up for bride (or bridesmaids) to wear, you’ve come to the right place!
As a past winter bride myself, I know how important it is to wear wedding cover ups to stay warm (without, ya know, covering up your beautiful gown!) especially in cold wintry weddings. Today we’ll talk about wedding cover ups and wraps that go over your wedding dress to stay warm in winter weddings, fall weddings, and even those chilly spring or summer nights.
Let’s take a look! It’s our latest Ask Emmaline question!
Wedding Cover Ups and Wraps
When bride-to-be Vanessa wrote to us about her February wedding, we couldn’t wait to swoop in to help. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline Bride! My wedding is in February and I’m looking for wedding cover ups and wraps to wear. Do you have any suggestions for what to wear over my wedding dress that looks cute? I haven’t been able to find anything I like. Thanks!”
Hi Vanessa! Great news: if there’s anyone who knows all about the latest warm cover-ups and wraps, it’s us! We love figuring out what to wear over your wedding dress in winter without stealing the show and ruining your wedding photos.
Here are four of our favorite warm bridal cover-up options for you to consider.
1. Silk Wedding Scarves
For wedding cover ups for dresses any time of the year, go with silk scarves! A silk wedding wrap will cover you in warmth and elegance. These handmade scarves by Planted Pigments are one-of-a-kind: Mallorey uses plant based pigments to dye the scarves and wedding wraps. This is one of my favorite wedding scarves: it has a hint of something blue!
Or this one, perfectly named: ombré skies!
You can even get luxurious custom scarves made here in your favorite shade.
2. Faux Fur Shawls
Faux fur wraps are ideal in winter weddings because they’ll actually keep you warm. Plus, it will tie into the fun winter wedding look and may even become your favorite new winter accessory.
We spotted these faux fur wraps at Sissily Designs as one option.
As you can see, they’re the experts in faux fur and there are so many lovely color options and styles from which to choose.
3. Pashmina Wedding Wraps
For winter and fall weddings, a pashmina shawl or scarf makes great wedding cover ups and wraps. You can choose inexpensive wraps in a variety of colors from YadiMercier, like this one shown here.
You can also choose a monogrammed pashmina or shawl, great for your “something blue”! By Ella Winston.
4. Plaid Wedding Cover Ups
For ultra-cozy wedding cover ups and wraps, wear a plaid blanket scarf like these by InTheBagDesins. They have a ton of plaid options to coordinate with your wedding colors! I love this look, especially in the fall.
We also love these plaid wedding wraps from EllaWinston. There are many plaid styles from which to choose for your wedding cover ups and wraps.
5. Crochet Cover Up
One of the best winter wedding cover ups and wraps? A crochet bolero! Wrap yourself up in cozy comfort with a custom-crocheted bolero! Pick any color you like best! By MODAcrochet.
These are 100% handmade! I love this style (photo via ModaCrochet):
