Are you a winter bride and you’re asking yourself… what am I supposed to wear over my wedding dress in winter? You’ve come to the right place!
As a past winter bride myself, I know how important it is to stay warm with a bridal cover-up (without, ya know, covering up your beautiful gown!) especially in cold wintry weddings. Today we’ll talk about what to wear 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 + it’s kicking off the week!
Warm Bridal Cover Ups
When bride-to-be Vanessa wrote 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 still need a warm cover-up or wrap to wear. Do you have any suggestions for what to wear over my wedding dress? 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. Bridal faux fur wrap
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.
You can see more or get yours here.
2. Pashmina shawl
For winter and fall weddings, a pashmina shawl or scarf is always a good way to keep warm. 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.
3. Plaid scarf
For an ultra-cozy wrap, wear a plaid blanket scarf like these by ShopWarmThreads. They have a ton of plaid options to coordinate with your wedding colors! I love this look, especially in the fall.
4. Crochet bolero
Wrap yourself up in cozy comfort with a custom-crocheted bolero! This is another great option for what to wear over your wedding dress in winter. Pick any color you like best! By MODAcrochet.
And there you have it: warm bridal cover-ups! These are all perfect for what to wear over your wedding dress and still look stylish! :) Hope it helps and thanks so much for writing!
