OK bees I’m searching for a winter coat to go with my ivory DB strapless trumpet gown style WG9871. I want a coat that will look cute but that I can wear after my wedding. Our ceremony is outdoors on Dec.21,2013–if you know Indiana weather you know that means an avg temperature of 30-35degrees.
Here are the coats I’ve found so far that I like…
Coat option 1:in grey
Coat option 2:in grey
Coat option 3: dark red

- Wedding: February 2013 - Mansion House at the MD Zoo
I am too lazy to click links, so this may be no help. But I would recommend looking on modcloth.com Lots of coats/jackets that are really pretty and not terribly expensive. I covet like 8 of them at any given time, and not for my wedding, just to wear.
I am getting married in February, found a fur capelet for $70 in a thrift store.

I like the first one best! But the first two are super adorable! I picked one over two because I don’t like the lace on the coat with the satin of the dress as much.

They are lovely.
You could also check consignment shops, etc., for an awesome vintage coat.

I really like the red one!
Also, if you haven’t ordered from FanPlusFriend before, they tend to run a tad bit small. So be careful with your measurements, but all of those jackets are beautiful and FPF is a good company. ^^

I love FPF! Also, bodyline has some really cute stuff (although not so much if you’re plus-sized, which I have no idea if you are or not!)

OK well now I have a new website to stalk and daydream about owning everything on it.
The red one is my favorite for with your wedding dress. The others are stunning but I think the shape of the red one will “go” better and create a really beautiful effect.

Thank you everyone! I think I’ll go ahead and buy the first jacket and then continue to look elsewhere. I haven’t thought about thrift stores. I live in a small town so I’ll have to check in to that next time I go to Indianapolis!
@LondonAugust: Thanks for the advice, I’ve never ordered from them before! 🙂
