One of the most important considerations when planning a wedding is the season when it will be held. Summer weddings have always been popular for their easy and light ambiance, but fall and autumn weddings have this distinct ethereal charm that still enchants some couples into holding their big day during the cooler seasons of the year.
Unlike summer weddings where it’s basically “anything goes” in terms of wedding elements — including the attire of the entourage — cooler season weddings have it more challenging in quite a lot of aspects. Aside from the ideal venue, one of the dilemmas fall and winter brides need to solve is how to keep their nearest and dearest warm and cozy while still managing everything to be stylish. The good thing is that this can be easily solved with just the right research.
In this article, we will be rounding up the best fashion garments you can incorporate into your bridesmaids’ attire to keep them snug and comfy as they do their duties — from walking down the aisle to assisting the guests. Read on for some trendy inspirations you can tie into your cool-weather wedding outfits.
Warm Your Bridesmaids Up With: Good Ol’ Jacket
Of course, the best way to fight the cold and keep warm is with a good ol’ jacket! The amazing thing is that there are plenty of ways you can get creative with this garment. There is a selection of materials you can choose from, depending on the theme of your wedding. If you’re having a Gothic wedding, leather jackets are the way to go. If your theme is rustic, denim jackets would be ideal. To make things more interesting, have the jackets personalized with your girls’ names on the back or their designated role (bridesmaid, maid of honor, etc.) in the wedding.
Warm Your Bridesmaids Up With: Snug Shawl
Fall weddings are well-loved for their crisp weather (not too cold) and it’s just the right setting for your bridesmaids to wear some snug shawls instead of heavier garments. Match the shawl to the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses for a more cohesive look. Check out CICINIA, your one-stop bridesmaid dresses shop which also offers matching fashionable shawls.
Warm Your Bridesmaids Up With: Fancy Faux Fur Stole
Glam and gorgeous, faux fur adds a touch of opulence to any outfit. Hit two birds with one stone (fashion and function) with this type of accessory for your bridesmaid. You can choose a stole in complementing color for the dress that they would be wearing. A blush pink bridesmaid dress would look phenomenal with a cream or white faux fur stole.
Warm Your Bridesmaids Up With: Soft Scarves
Another option you can furnish your bridesmaids with to ensure that they are warm and wonderful during your big day are soft scarves. There are several options for the type of scarves you can provide – cashmere, silk, cotton, chiffon, and even lace. If you want something out of the ordinary, you may also opt for crocheted scarves – plush and pleasant to wear.
Warm Your Bridesmaids Up With: Comfy Bolero
Another pretty cover-up you can provide to your girls is comfy boleros. They come in different lengths – from long sleeves to short and cap sleeves so you can match them to the style and silhouette of the bridesmaids’ dress. Bling up the boleros with sequins, beads, pearls, or crystals to make them more pretty and dazzling.
Warm Your Bridesmaids Up With: Cozy Cardigan
If you want something homier and more casual, you should consider cardigans for your girls. A cottagecore autumn wedding in the woods would be the perfect setting for cardigan-wearing bridesmaids.
Warm Your Bridesmaids Up With: Bold Blazer
Blazers are lighter than jackets but chicer than a cardigan. If your modern wedding will land during a cold month, have your girls wear a blazer to match their edgy bridesmaid dresses. Blazers are sleek, well-tailored, and ultra-fashionable, just what the outfit for your special day should be.
