I really enjoy reading these boards (I love advice of all kinds) but this is my first post.
I’m getting married SOON (March 24) and am having a bit of last minute panic about what to wear over my turquoise silk cocktail dress. March 24 is going to be cold, dreary, early spring weather in Nova Scotia and although the wedding is 100% inside, I’d like to find something to cover my shoulders that I can wear down the aisle and during dinner at our museum wedding. Mostly I want to add a bit more glamour and class to my outfit.
I already have a white/peacock feather bouquet, black heels, and vintage AB rhinestone jewelry.
So, the shoulder question. Silk wrap? Shrug? Bolero? Faux fur stole? Real vintage fur stole? Marabou stole? I have stoles on the brain today. But yesterday I was pretty set on a silk bolero. What would you wear?

I like the idea of a fur stole. Maybe not 100% white though and a facinator like this

Awesome fascinator! I’m a little bit afraid to go too feathery, what with the feather bouquet (which I did get from Etsy and the vendor did an amazing job on). ON the other hand, I really like feathers!

I like the idea of a fur stole for walking down the aisle, but I’m concerned it will be out of place and/or impractical while having dinner. I’d go with the silk wrap so that you can position it however you want to before, during and after dinner.

@2ndtime: I totally get what you’re saying. Do you think there’s a way to wear a wrap that’s a bit more structured? I’m trying to avoid this look, which is elegant, but will not work with my curves (I don’t think):

In the end I bought a vintage marabou feather stole from etsy! I’m super psyched. It’s pretty fuzzy/furry looking but less risk of blood being thrown on me at some point during the day. I can wear it as a scarf during dinner but over my shoulders during the ceremony. Now to locate shoes for my wide, wide feet and contemplate the glove question….

I think a fur stole would look great
