    Very pretty! I’ll be getting a fur wrap for my wedding, as it’ll be october and outside. It can go either way, be very cold, or be moderate. I’ve seen both over the past few years.

    I’m thinking something like this, in ivory :

    with my bridesmaids in something like this :

    With that dress, I don’t think you want anything that’s going to detract from its amazing neckline. So, while that jacket would work, I think you need to trim it so it fits under the ruffles completely without changing their shape. Probably need to lose about half the width at the front for that, so it only comes around about as far as the line of your nippples LOL. 

    I think the bolero sleeves like JLo in that photo is you best option, too, it you can get away with it.

    @jenilynevette:  I love your bridesmaid’s wrap, they look so unique.

    @bohosioux:  Well the inspiration is nice, but I don’t think it’s right for your dress. And I really dislie the jacket as is, but I’m sure you can find something. Just remember to get something you like and makes you feel good.
