I think you should see this as a fun challenge…there are so many options depending on the time of year your wedidng is to take place. Cardigans, boleros, shrugs, and you even have the option of adding capped sleeves. You got your dress at a bargian and she’s gorgous. Use all that money you saved to make it uniquely YOU.

I love the idea of a cardigan, but then again, I am a cardigan type of girl!  I think you should add a yellow caridgan to your dress!

If you can afford it, I’d get a fancier white shrug for the ceremony, and a yellow cardigan for the reception. The yellow cardigan would definitely be re-wearable, if you need to justify it coming out of your household budget, instead of your wedding budget.

I like moara’s idea. You could be a two-look bride, with only one dress. I did something similar. I had removable lace cap sleeves added to my dress that I wore to the ceremony and took off for the reception. And I think the yellow cardigan would give you a more “party” look.

Have you considered adding a grey sash to your dress? I think that sashes help define the waist for us curvier brides and draw attention away from less flattering areas (for me, that’s my arms!) I wore a blue one and it made me look (and feel) thinner.

@Mrs.tobe: I LOVE that!

I’m not a huge fan of cardigans with wedding dresses. I think it’s a bit too casual. I love a fancy bolero though!
