    No way can you wear a sweater on your wedding day

    Not really my vision of bridal, but hey, it's your day!

    It's do-able, for a casual wedding

    I like the idea

    I love the idea!!!

    No problem!  My BMs and I also wore faux fur for my wedding for your same reasons ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, do it!  I love all the pictures here.  I’ve been on the lookout for a super-soft, simple sweater in case it gets chilly on our wedding day. : )

    I like the idea! As long as the sweater is a little nicer quality (aka no $15 from Target) … I’m thinking either a nice cashmere for lighter weight or a good quality wool knit. The one you posted is really nice and with a simple dress, it could be very nice!

    I think it’s adorable! I may have to steal the idea and find a bright yellow one for my wedding! It’s indoors, so I’d only wear it if we go outside, but still, it’d be cute for photos!

    I love the idea of a sweater!  Tons of great options and I think it’s a great way to personalize your look.

    Have you seen the episode of My Big Fat Wedding which Dina (from Real Housewives of New Jersey) was?  Notice the top left picture.. It’s a great dress and I think it looked phenomenal.

    If you look at the bottom left there’s a video…

    Go for it! I think it’d add an intimate, cozy feel to your wedding. Plus, being a girl who’s spent her whole life in tundra climate, I am very pro-sweater! Nothing like a sweater to make you feel warm, loved, and totally ready to take on the world! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You could come up with a unqiue design (I voted that I loved your idea btw DDW) and post it on alchemy on Etsy or to this favorite etsy seller whose designs I adore, and have one created for you!  I like the idea of an ornate sweater! 

    Maybe show us your dress or what you’d like your dress style to be and we could all work together (you deciding of course) what kind of style sweater would look both glamorous and fabulous with it???

    I think it’s a great idea.  I’m a huge fan of Bonzie’s work with her caplets and boleros on etsy, and I wonder if she could create a larger yet still romantic and warm sweater?  Have you checked her style out?  Maybe something more substantial in fabric but just as ornate?

    I love this style, but you’d need something more winter friendly but love the ruffely look of this:

    and here’s a sweater she made in pewter:

    Here’s a link to her etsy shop:
