    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!!!

    I am wearing a cape on my wedding day.  I made it myself, and haven’t taken any pictures, but I will when I get home today and post some.

    You should definitely wear a sweater! My friend knitted me one for my wedding & it was perfect. It was a great pop of color, kept me warm, (mine was green) and now whenever I wear it I’m reminded of our wedding day.

    I voted yes for a casual wedding but, I do like the idea- it also depends what your dress is like and the theme of your wedding. What about a faux fur long sleeved shrug/bolero or a knitted shrug? I think the cute cardigan is fine but, a shrug would be even better. Since we are getting married outside in the snow in Colorado in I’m going to be wearing a long sleeved shrug, something similar to faux fur pictured:

    I just bought this cute sweater for my wedding in case it gets chilly. I found it at anthro and love the blush color.

    I’ve been looking for a good sweater but I just can’t find anything.  I’m planning on having it just for the reception though.

    I saw a really lovely magazine shoot where they were in the snow and the “bride” was wearing a really lovely ball gown type dress and over the top she had a wrap around cardigan that ballet dancers wear. It was a baby pink colour and was nice and fluffy looking like maybe cashmere or angora wool. It looked great – and warm! LOL

    Victoria’s Secret has an adorable little cashmere cardigan in lots of different colors that also might work for cold weather brides. 🙂
