Cozy Wedding Wraps – 5 Stylish Choices to Keep You Warm

If you are having a fall or winter wedding you may want to consider adding a wrap to  your wedding attire. It can create a new dimension to your overall look and at the same time will keep you cozy and warm.

There are quite a few wedding wrap options. Here are 5 great choices for you:

Cardigan Sweater

The style of your wrap should complement your gown and the formality of your wedding. For example, a fur stole would not be the best choice for a casual backyard wedding, but a vintage shawl would be perfect.

And don’t be afraid to add color as seen in many of the photos below. Coordinating the color of your wrap with your flowers creates a beautiful vision.

One way to create a unique look is to look in vintage shops for a wrap that will add a special touch. The last shawl in the first collage below is vintage.

When looking for photos for this post I came across a lot of Etsy sellers who make wedding wraps, so you may want to look in to that option, as well.

Take a look at the collages I created for you below and find the wrap that is perfect for you! There are more choices on our Pinterest board.

    I would love to order the white fur cape with the hood on it. It’s the short cape and the girl is holding snow. Is there a website that I could order that off of?

    Would it look nice for the bride to wear a shawl in the same color as the bridesmaids dresses, but have the bridesmaids wear tan shawls? Specifically the bridesmaids will wear burgundy dresses with tan shawls. I can’t decide if the brides shawl should be ivory to match her gown, or could it be burgundy to match the girls dresses?

      Hi Sandy, I think there are a lot of options and really, it is a matter of opinion. The main thing is that I wouldn’t recommend the bride wearing a burgundy shawl and the bridesmaids wearing tan/ivory. For bridesmaids I suggest matching burgundy shawls. For the bride I suggest ivory to match her dress. If the bridesmaids were not wearing shawls I think burgundy would be fine for the bride. But since they are wearing shawls I don’t think it will work for the bride to wear a shawl that is the same as theirs. I think it will help if you can see the various looks. Here is a link to a search I did on Pinterest for “Bridesmaids Shawls”. I hope this helps! Scroll down and there are quite a few examples that I think will help you see how various combinations look.

      Best wishes!
