Keep warm with designer winter wedding accessories from Queens & Bowl
Every bride deserves beautiful winter wedding accessories. Many of you will be dreaming of a white wedding with snow, crystal clear skies and bright sunshine, though the hope will be that it’s just not raining! It’s around this time of year that brides who have planned a winter wedding will begin looking for the perfect designer accessories.
Whether we like it or not, we have to be mindful of the weather when planning a winter wedding. Come rain or shine it’s going to be cold and while there can be no compromise on the dress that doesn’t mean a bride has to be bundled up in a big heavy coat and scarf.
There are options available to stay warm and still look as beautiful as can be. Carefully chosen capes, stoles, jackets or shrugs can be worn with a designer wedding dress to ward off the cold while retaining your look of timeless beauty and glamour.
Designer Wedding Stoles & Capes
Wedding stoles are worn around the shoulders and brought to the front where they can often be tied. These winter wedding accessories have religious origins so are perfect for a bride having a big church wedding. Wedding capes are similar in style and design but tend to be larger, offering more coverage for colder climes.
They can be made from either faux fur or feathers and are typically white, providing the perfect accessory for the traditional bride. They are also ideal for a vintage wedding theme, especially for that 1950s movie star look, as you can see from the two examples below.
Glamorous Wedding Shrugs & Jackets
A wedding shrug offers less coverage than a stole, cape or jacket so is probably better chosen for a late autumn or early spring wedding, not the dead of winter! However, they are a super classy thing to team with your perfect wedding dress. Again, the options can be faux fur or feathers and again the look is one of extreme glamour, sure to make any bride feel very special on the big day.
This Marabou shrug in champagne by Sasso offsets a white gown very well and as you can see, it looks fantastic.
For colder weather an ostrich feather wedding jacket is a great option. Take a look at this exquisite piece from top designer Sasso.
Ideal for a 1920s inspired wedding, it looks great with a slinky wedding gown and can be fastened at the front as required.
So remember, ladies, if you choose your winter wedding accessories wisely it might still be cold on your big day, but it doesn’t mean YOU have to be!
