That my bridesmaids will have to wear something to cover their shoulders since our wedding is at a cathedral (but the bride can wear strapless). Does anyone have any suggestions for something pretty that would work? We already ordered their dresses in black, and our colors are black and white, so I’m not sure if it would be bad for the bridesmaids to wear a Bolero jacket in cream with their black dresses? Black on black is like they are attending a funeral!

Maybe get them pashminas? That’s what my girls used for the ceremony. Do you have any other accent colors you could use, like silver?

Would help to see a picture of the dress, but how about a white organza wrap, or a shrug (it’s purple in the picture, but here’s a link where they sell other colors – http://www.tjformal.com/52927/631734/Pretty-Maids/Pretty-Maids-Bridesmaid-Shrug-J04.html?ref=cj):

A bolero is a good idea. Otherwise you can give them a cream pashmina (and personalize it if you want) as a bridesmaid gift and they can wear it during the ceremony.

@Heatherloveskenny: I think it would work nicely! if you want another option, how about a white shawl with black detailing? or even lace shawls? They’ll cover the shoulders, as required, look pretty, and can be used for other things as well. The might also be a tad cheaper than the bolero jackets….

I love that purple one, we actually are usually a lot of brooches in our decor (Glam theme) so that would go. But I think its made of satin and the dresses are chiffon :-/
We don’t have any accent colors, but I’m thinking about adding maybe a champagne or neautral color so I don’t have to change around everything that I’ve already planned, just adding a touch of champagne accents or something.
Thank you everyone for the help! I found pashminas on etsy for really inexpensive that can be customized. So that will work also!
