I’m getting married on March 30 in New York. March has iffy weather around here. It could be 60 degrees, or 40, so I’m not sure how to handle outerwear. In the past, that day averages a temperature of 52 degrees.
I think the idea of a bridal blazer is awesome, as shown by this pic (except I’d like the blazer to match my ivory satin dress):
If nothing else, this would just be used to get me from point A to point B comfortably.
I think this solution offers the best options for such an iffy time of the year. If I get something like this … and it’s 60 degress I’ll be hot and look like an idiot (although I would love to wear one):
Or, I could wear a lace bolero for outdoors and the ceremony, as shown in this pic (which I’m pretty sure is my gown), but would not do much to keep me warm if its freezing:
What would you do? And also, anyone know of a good place to find a bridal blazer?
I’m leaning more toward the blazer, and just going bare armed during the ceremony. Looking for some advice 🙂

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?

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?
