    I actually bought a grey faux fur, so i’m a little biased. i think it adds a touch of elegance ๐Ÿ™‚

    The faux fur is best. Definitely not the white ones, far too casual

    Not sure if this is your style, but you could always go for a blush/pink stole to match your dress. Anthropologie ships to Canada (so you’d definitely get it within a month) and I think it even has stores in Canada… anyways, this one is on sale! And if you use the promo code “EXTRAEXTRA” you get another 40% off, bringing this to $42 down from $98.

    I’d suggest a contrasting ivory/white shrug.  Everything at a bridal store takes months to order, so I’d check out local clothing stores.    

    You might call your local bay to see if they have this in stock: http://www.thebay.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/en/thebay/brands/accessories/faux-fur-stole-0040-ej4m7338–24

    At a lower price point, Laura usually has faux fur boleros:   http://www.laura.ca/19608-Faux-Fur-Open-Front-Bolero.aspx

    There’s always a white fur infinity scarf at Danier: http://www.danier.com/kiele-combination-infinity-scarf/d/2008_c_450_cl_9490

    Definitely the last one. The first two are wayyyyyy too casual for what you want, and the fox is, well, um, if you’ll forgive my honesty, it’s ugly.

    Better yet, talk to a seamstress and have something made ๐Ÿ™‚

    Shrink-E-Dink:  Glad it helped someone! I’m not sure how much longer the extraextra code will work, so if you’re thinking of getting it, I’d go soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like Lakeside003 suggestion of the blush shrug at BHLDN. One classic fabric for a winter wedding that would not detract from the look of your beautiful dress is velvet. You should be able to have a matching shoulder wrap made in velvet. Most of the fabric shrugs you’ve shown are too casual, and the lace one would compete with your dress.
