    Mrs.Z.:  The 2 white shrugs are way too casual for that dress.  The grey faux fur is a better option, but I think there’s something better out there.  I think the lace will compete with the work on the dress.

    Mrs.Z.:  The faux fur is lovely. I think it would look great!

    Mrs.Z.:  I love the gray faux fur – especially since you have gray shoes. Love it!

    I voted neither. I don’t really like any of them for a wedding.

    What about seeing if you can get extra of the fabric/tulle from your dress in the same color and have the seamstress or someone that is handy make you a matching shrug? Etsy is also particularly good finding these kinds of things.

    You don’t want to be too busy and distract from the dress. It sounds like you will have other accessories as well…

    Of those that you picked, I’d have to pick the grey fur. But I can’t really picture it together. Have you thought of a brown fur shrug? What would that look like? 

    You could also look at a fur wrap in a blush colour. I think that would look really nice. Or are you wanting the contrast in colours?

    BHLDN has a blush faux fur shrug that I think is more interesting, otherwise I like the idea of a brown fur shrug. Not really a fan of the other options you posted photos of. This might be one of those situations that you need to order a few and try them on with your gown until you find what works best. Here is a link to that blush one however at BHLDN: http://www.bhldn.com/the-bride-bridal-cover-ups/sadie-wrap-blush/productoptionids/0848592b-d439-4e88-b197-5a7086f4ba0f

    Not a fan of any. The dress is far too pretty for anything posted so far.

    Mrs.Z.:  I deff like the fur the best. That silver shrug is cute too but for my tastes the fur shrug better suits what I like. I think it looks so fancy and beautiful but it is whateve ryou think you will feel beautiful in on your wedding day! 🙂
