I love it! I think it’s so fun.  I was thinking about doing it as well but I think I need something a little heavier since my wedding is a winter wedding.

Check out BHLDN.  They are pricey but stunning.  I like the second to last one the best: http://www.bhldn.com/shop_bridesmaids-party-goers_cover-ups?showAll=1

J. Crew and Ann Taylor Loft have some simple but nice ones as well. 🙂

Thanks so much for this post 🙂 I thought about doing a cardigan aaaaages ago but couldn’t find anything I liked. In the meantime I went out and bought a faux fur bolero but after reading this post, I remebered how badly I wanted one so I just quickly went over to the shops and found a cardi in the perfect colour for $10 just in case I change my mind on the day.

I LOVE the cardigan look. Would you do a purple cardi..? I think a pop of colour like that is so fun! The one in the pic with the little ruffle is gorgous. I chose my shoes first which made it easier to pick the bolero and cardi. Allanah Hill is an Aussie designer that does gorgeous knits.

I won’t be wearing one for the ceremony, but I will probably get one to put on afterwards. All of my girls are wearing them for the ceremony though!

I ordered an inexpensive cardigan from Old Navy to have just in case I was chilly. I didn’t put it on until the end of the evening.

I was a cardigan bride! I am still loving the look of a pop of color with a wedding dress 🙂 I got my cardigan from Target for $19.99. I would just keep your eye open and something will catch it!

I am on the cardigan band wagon. My dress is strappless and I have a number of scars on my shoulders/arms that I am trying to cover up… Enter shrug….

I will be wearing this one on my big day, in a olive green colour to match the belt I am making for my dress, I have yet to make it though.

I definitely prefer the sheer or lacy options. The fancier normal cardigan is okay, but it still looks a little too casual IMO. I’m not a fan of a regular cardigan with a dress as “dressy” as yours.

There are lots of options to check out on Etsy! Boleros, cardigans, every colour etc.

Well seeing that Princess Kate wore a cardigan over her second dress for the reception I can’t agree that it is too casual – if it was good enough for Buckingham Palace it was good enough for me! I wore a cardigan before and after our wedding, we got married in November and it had snowed 2 weeks before so I got cardigans for myself and my bridesmaids. We didn’t wear them during the ceremony or reception, but I think they looked cute in the few pics they made it into. I doubt I can add pics from my phone but I’ll load one up later!
