If you’d like them to have a shawl or pashmina, I’d personally recommend buying them one that isn’t satin so they can use it again after the wedding. There are so many beautiful options out there that are versatile enough to be worn for your wedding and for everyday. Maybe some other brides have photos of what their girls used?

I’m not sure they NEED anything for the ceremony — but it’s really up to you whether you like the look! 🙂

@MissKit:  I like the shawls, but I’m a little hesitant about them for November – is it too much to put your bridesmaids in faux fur as well?

I’m with  Gemstone. A satin wrap on top of a satin dress will be very difficult for the BM’s to keep in place (slippery fabric).

Do they need their shoulders covered during the ceremony?

It’s not tacky or unfashionable.  If you think it will be cold and they will want to wear a coat or jacket between venues, I would buy a pashmina or a cute cardigan that they could use at theceremony if need be or at the  reception if they were a little chilly.

@MissKit:  To maintain a formal look, I would try something like a black on black embroidered/beaded wrap/scarf

@MissKit:  For a wedding I was Maid/Matron of Honor for, we had long black dresses, and pink and orange pashminas. That prolly sounds weird, but it looked awesome. I agree with a PP that maybe something other than satin – though for me because satin on satin would look really heavy. Something like chiffon, or a pashmina, or other, gives a good texture variant.
