When temps drop, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style. Bridal cover ups are more fashionable than ever, so winter brides are in luck! Whether you chose a halter or strapless gown that shows off your shoulders or simply feel chilly in the on-trend sheer or lace sleeves, sometimes an extra layer is what you need to be comfy yet still pulled together. Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered with 5 bridal cover up options sure to please even the pickiest of brides.
Bridal Cover Up: Beautiful Boleros
A feathery or other such bolero adds a certain sophistication to any bridal look. These by BHLDN are fun and feathery.
Perfect for winter or outdoor ceremonies, a bolero adds style that can easily be removed for cocktail hour or beyond. Peter Langner‘s more unique bolero is detailed enough to perfectly compliment the unembellished gown underneath.
All Wrapped Up
A faux fur wrap in a dark color can work with any bridal gown and can be worn again after the wedding. Fun, practical, and memorable! There are so many faux fur wraps around in a variety of colors, so shop around for one that speaks to you.
Bridal Cover Up: Captivating Capes
You can feel like a superhero in a cape! Pair a cape with beaded adornment for some added flair to a less embellished gown, and your ensemble is complete. Check out this dramatic cape from Naeem Khan.
If that’s too dramatic how about a beaded option from BHLDN?
Bridal Cover Up: Preppy yet Pretty Sweaters
There are so many sweaters you could pair with a bridal gown, and a winter bride can opt for cozy cashmere for a luxe effect. Often a sweater can give off a preppy vibe, but really, let’s face it, a sweater atop a gown is just practical when it’s cold out. Look for one with pearl buttons for full-on bridal vibes.
The Bridal Jacket
These days one only has to browse Etsy for many bridal jackets. You could think out of the box and go with denim or leather, or perhaps more conventional with a lace or silk jacket. No matter which style you choose, a bridal jacket is a great way to cover up if changing locations from ceremony to reception, or just to feel more covered up for outdoor photos. Plus many of them can easily be worn again, like this option from Nicole by NF, making it a practical option, too.)
