@aekc:  I’m a February bride, so I feel you with the coat consideration. I like the addition of the tartan, but when you described your maids I had a different vision. Have you thought about camel, instead of white for the coat? I love the look of a long, camel coat and think that especially if the tartan is greens and blues and red it will look really polished.

@aekc:  What about a cloak/cape? I always think they look so beautiful and elegant. It’s just never cold enough where I live.

@aekc:  Oooh! I think that would look so elegant with camel! I’m actually wearing a camel coat I snagged last summer (long before we realized we were having a February wedding). This is clearly a model, not me. The coat falls more or my mid-calf. I will likely wear a navy blue scarf. My bridesmaids are wearing navy, floor-length dresses.

@aekc:  Maybe use it for the trim instead of fur?

@aekc:  Or have Tartan lining! White outside, Tartan inside. Maybe reversible?

@aekc:  Thanks! It’s from Brooks Brothers. I think they call it their Polo Coat. I got it at an outlet in rural North Carolina for $180 or so. I think regular retail is, sadly, significantly higher than that.
