@BigWhiteDress:  I’m wondering the same thing! You could get a fur bolero. What is your dress like?

I think the faux fur shawls/wraps are the best more-formal option.  

If you could find a chunky cropped cardigan in a nice fiber it might be something they could wear again.  Your dresses look pretty drapey so they should be on the more fitted side.  

You could consider giving them mittens as a gift! I think this photo is super cute: 

 

Are you going to have them wear boots or tights?  If you’re not doing pics outside, they’ll probably be warm enough with just a wrap.  Maybe have some plushy blankets in the limo for the ride over in case it’s chilly in there too.  I’m originally from MN and I survived winter trips in formalwear with blankets.

I’m getting married in December in Pittsburgh, so I had a similar thought for my maids.  I want outdoor photos if it is at all nice weather, and I want them to be warm. I ended up buying them these jackets on sale at Nordstrom just a few months ago.  They will go with full length, black gowns.  Now is probably the time to look for sales while the weather is still nice!   I’m also wearing a white fur that used to belong to my future MIL so we should all look good together.

Also getting married early March in Pittsburgh.  I’m looking at pashminas currently, but I’m not sure if it’s something I’ll go with or not.  I love the look of these faux fur ones.
