Also curious about this topic. I’m getting married in October and my girls are wearing a nice but casual dress. I’m wondering if a cardigan would look to casual if the groomsmen wear black suits? One of them has said she thinks a shawl would look better because it’s dressier, but I kind of hate shawls…. and they seem useless in actually keeping people warm which is a concern of mine. Does anyone have a photo of what groomsmen in black suits with bridesmaids in cardigans might look like? (BM dress below)

mediatourist:  Can’t seem to edit my post O.o forgot to mention that some of the other girls were concerned that their tummies “poke out” in this dress so the cardigans would hide that. (I’m like, I don’t see the problem – we all have internal organs. But I don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable.)

mediatourist:  Another idea might be a scarf cape. It’s basically just a large square scarf folded in half,then stitched closed on either side for the underarm seam. The middle is left open. Ted Baker does a bunch of these but you (or your seamstress) could make them easily.

julies1949:  Only my opinion , but this is the only cardie look  I have ever seen  that I personally like  . Nothing wrong with them of course ,and pretty damn  useful for winter but i think they render  the  whole look  too informal   for me  . But your pic looks great , and I absolutely love the bride’s wrap ( assuming faux fur of course)
