Wedding day cover-up is a great way to keep winter chills at bay on your wedding day. One thing you definitely don’t have to compromise on is style because there are so many ways to go depending on your preference.
A wrap is the ideal cold-weather accessory to pair with a wedding gown or bridesmaid dress. You can opt for soft cashmere, lace-trimmed or velvet wraps to fight off the winter chill and the wrap styling makes it easy to slip over your gown. A wrap topper has a well-fitted silhouette that works perfectly to highlight your waist and show some figure. A complementary bow can be a great addition.
A light sweater can make for a preppy cover-up while still looking pretty and feminine. A sweater with delicate embroidery and pearl buttons can fit effortlessly into any wedding theme and wedding party. They can also serve as a fun accessory to play with at the wedding.
Matching sweaters in different colors with your bridesmaid can add a playful burst of color to the occasion. A monogram on each sweater will be a great personal touch.
A cozy scarf manages to be demure yet chic all at once and can make even a sleeveless gown winter-ready. Opt for a chunky knit scarf with a wintery fringe to keep warm and toasty despite the cold weather in the cocktail hours. You and your maids can twist it around your necks or use it as an off the shoulder wrap for extra warmth. An oversized one can also be used to snuggle in long after your wedding is over!
4. Feather Jacket
A feather-trimmed cover-up paired with an illusion neckline can add a touch of glamour to your wedding look. It has just the right hint of drama and will keep your warm and snuggly all day long. Pick up an ivory version to wear over your gown as you head outside for photos in the snow. With this flamboyant feathery number, all eyes will be on you, no matter the temperature!
You can never go wrong with a blazer – it will look just as chic over your wedding dress as it will with a pair of jeans. A tailored blazer paired with a bridal jumpsuit screams smart, sophisticated and undeniably stylish. A well-fitted, white blazer worn alongside a formal strapless dress works beautifully. Or try a casual blazer with your wedding gown for a laid back look.
You can incorporate a frill or ruffle detailing on the blazer to make it look more bridal while you’re standing in the wedding reception.
6. Something Extra
You can totally ditch the bride tag altogether and opt for a kimono, denim or a leather jacket, to stand out from the crowd. Don’t be afraid to mix up your look; think flowing satin gowns paired with a short leather jacket or billowing lace gowns with a denim number draped over your shoulders.You can personalize it with floral appliques or hand-painted “Bride” or your partner’s surname emblazoned on them.
There are so many gowns cover-up options, you’ll be sure to find one that is suitable for your taste on your big day. The best part is cover-ups are convertible pieces and it can be an investment piece that can work for more than just the wedding.
