17 Chic Ways to Stay Warm at a Winter Wedding
With the leaves changing, the temperatures dropping, and the snow falling, there are even more romantic opportunities for breathtaking wedding photos. There's only one issue: It's cold! The likelihood of you lasting outside for more than a minute before you start shivering is minimal. Enter: Our ultra-chic picks for bridal coats and capes. After all, we wouldn't want you to miss the magic of the season just because of a little weather!
Your wedding dress should be the star of the show on your big day, so if you're choosing something to layer over it, it needs to be just as gorgeous as your dream gown. Vintage brides may love a luxe fur coat or stole to cover up for their fall or winter nuptials—you can go for white fur if you want to keep it ultra-bridal or find one in a natural hue for a real Old Hollywood vibe. Fashion-forward, modern brides will love a white leather or metallic motorcycle jacket—this would look especially gorgeous over a classic lace gown or a textured sheath for a chic contract. A beaded cape and jacquard jacket will add that extra-glam pop to your wedding day look. If you want to get really decadent, you can go for an embellished tulle, lace, or fringed number to take your look to the next level.
The best part about looking for a bridal coat or cape is that you can definitely wear them again. Intrigued? Click through to see our favorite big-day outerwear looks.
