Okay ladies, I’ve become a little obsessed with the cardigan with your wedding dress look. I don’t know if it’s a trend I missed out on, but I just recently found it and decided I loved the idea. I’ve been searching for a while now for something to cover my arms in my dress, I am a little self conscious about my arms, they could use to be a little more toned! lol But, though desperate, my search has turned up dry. I am picky, and nothing seemed to match my dress right in the stores. I looked online and though there really are some beautiful things out there, I just found some of it to be too fussy. My wedding is just a mesh up of all the fun stuff myself and my Fiance love (I admit mostly what I love!) It’s eclectic and hopefully fun! A little vintage, a little modern, and a little nature-ish. My dress is elegant, at least in my opinion, I just love it (after months of thinking I wanted a new one! Silly me!). I honestly think the cardigan look is perfect for me, it’s simplistic but still elegant. What do you ladies think? I’ve done a little homework and found some pictures I liked showing off this look.
I do have some detail on my dress, some beading on the bodice and what not. But I don’t think it will hide it or take away from it. This picture shows a lot of detail on a girls dress but it’s perfectly visible.
And this is another great picture.
And this one is a bit fancier! lol
Purple is my main wedding color!

I LOOOOOVE cardigans with wedding dresses. If we were getting married earlier in the Spring, I absolutely would do it! I love how it can add a punch of color. So pretty!

I don’t like the look of colorful cardigans with the wedding dress. It just looks too casual to me. If you need sleeves, what about something sheer or lacy?
ETA – I know everything about this picture is terrible, but this is what a quick search yielded. You get the idea!

im going to wear one, depending on the weather maybe not during the ceremony but for sure for some pics and throughout the night. were getting married at my Father-In-Law cabin outside so it just makes sense to have something to cover up with.

I’m in love with this look!! I really intended to do it for my day-after shoot, but forgot my cardigan 🙁
ETA: i got my cardigan for my engagement pics from the new york and company outlet near my town. try looking at their website http://www.nyandcompany.com/nyco/cat/Apparel/Sweaters?addFacet=1002%3Acat60038

Thanks for the feed back ladies 🙂
@redheadem: Lace is absolutely out of the question, it looks terrible with my dress (which is diamond white organza) it’s just a miserable clash, I wish it weren’t because I wanted a lace element in my wedding, but it’s just not good!
@troublesmom: Wearing it for the ceremony was something I was debating as well. I am having an indoor wedding simply because Ohio’s weather is really unpredictable! It could be freezing and rainy, or wicked hot. But either way my venue will accommodate with AC or heating. Can’t beat that. I also have options for beautiful outside pictures so it’s the best of both worlds. I know it’s a great look in pictures, but I’ve never really seen and ceremony pictures…Maybe I should do some more homework and see! lol

im wearing a cardigan with my dress and it took me AGES to find the perfect one.
i realised that nothing would go with my giant ballgown skirt unless it was a cropped cardigan. here is the one i found in the end, on ebay of all places…
this is just a pic of me prancing around the house in my dress, cardi and hair piece.. so of course, i am not done up for the wedding hehe….

@deerdonna : Thanks for that 🙂 I was thinking of doing a cropped one as well but wasn’t sure. Will you be wearing it for your ceremony though?
It’s nice to know I have a date twin out there! I was told the first weekend of any month was a weird time to get married…Uh, whatever! Makes no sense lol.

Can you post a picture of your dress? Or did I miss a picture? A plain short cropped cardigan is perfect I think! I love the look.

I think our Blogger Bee ” Mrs. Mole” wore a cardigan!

Not a fan at all. It just looks too casual with a fancy dress.. theres plently of formal coverup options. But maybe I’m just too traditional in that sense.

I really like the cardigan look – but I feel like it tends towards a casual style…
So, my preference would be to wear the cardigan just for the reception…
Another option is to get a bolero – I found one I loved, it was actually handmade of satin I believe. It looked much fancier! 🙂
