I was going through the exact same thing as you when I got married this year, also on march 30th! We were married in a mountain town that still had some snow, so I opted for a white faux fur shrug… And I did not wear it once. It was about 45-50 on our day, and the tulle in my dress and the adrenaline of the day kept me warm. I actually got a little hot! If I could do it again, I would save the $100 I spent on the shrug and skip it.

I know this already happened but I was in NY on that day and saw a bride wearing a blazer while she waited. SO CHIC!

Asos has some darling white blazers, also might I suggest Anthropologie?

SO cute.

I’m planning to wear a faux fur jacket. Not sure if I will need it or not, but it only cost me $15, so I thought it was worth it. I think it’s casual enough that I can wear it to the office as well. And it doesn’t look nearly this fuzzy IRL.

Maybe a cardigan or sweater in a light, luxurious textile?

Sequined bolero or shrug?

Or even a shawl!

Blazers are a great idea. I was going to do that (got married on the 29th of March.) But I couldn’t find a blazer I liked that was quite the right ivory (most looked too yellow with my dress.) So in the end I just wore a simple black leather jacket in between pictures.) there are a few pics of me wearing it and it actually looks alright.  

One thing in terms of fit: when I tried on blazers that were longer they looked kind of funny because my dress flared out. So my slightly shorter jacket ended up being the perfect length. If your dress is fitted like in the picture you should be fine.

Or a white moto jacket? This would be fun to wear after the wedding.

@McBezel:  I LOVE LOVE the idea of a blazer! I actually started a thread about bridal blazers a while ago.

I wouldn’t gone with a black contrast but I should imagine any suiting place should be able to offer you an ivory blazer. I know BHLDN often have tailored jackets as well.

What does your dress look like? Would you be looking for a longer blazer as above or a shorter one cropped at the waist?

White Blazer Perfection!

White blazer mirrors his and is a fun juxtaposition of her feminine wedding dress
