All of you Winter brides are likely nailing down all of the final details for your impending nuptials. One of those details? What to wear to keep you warm when you’re exchanging your vows or snapping pictures with your sweetheart. It can be a challenge to find the perfect finishing piece that is both functional and fashionable, but I’ve rounded up some gorgeous options.
Embellished, Ladylike Cardigans
One of the easiest solutions to staying warm on your wedding day is adding a cute, stylish cardigan. To keep from looking like you threw on grandma’s sweater over your gorgeous wedding gown is to find a cardigan that complements, not competes with, your wedding gown. A cropped style will be best, as it won’t interfere with the skirt or detract from your overall look. Go with a white, ivory or pale pink, depending on your dress color or opt for a cardigan in one of your wedding colors. Look for feminine details, such as bows, embroidery or sequins to add some pretty pizzazz.

If you’re more of a glamour girl, then you’ve gotta break out the faux fur. Count your lucky stars that this season, faux fur, particularly in white, is a popular trend, so you will have no shortage of jackets, vests, stoles and boleros to choose from. There aren’t too many limitations with this look, since the fur is an obvious addition to your overall look, not just an accessory. However, stick to shorter styles, as a long fur jacket will compete with your dress. If you’re planning to wear a fur piece for the ceremony, I’s go with a classic white to keep with the bridal theme. But, if you’re donning this warm weather accessory just for photos, have some fun with it. Go with a brown or even a light gray. One must: Avoid colors that are not natural. A light pink fur stole might sound pretty in theory, but in practice, you’ll look like a wanna be Playboy bunny…wearing a bunny.

Whatever you choose, plan to have something on hand other than your groom’s tux jacket, even if its just a pretty pashmina. Comfort is key – and trying to exchange vows with chattering teeth might prove more difficult than one would like!
