I have a red pashmina that I may wear if I get cool.  I don’t anticipate needing anything at the ceremony or reception though.

For a coat, I am wearing my grandmothers (vintage) light brown short mink coat.

It is similar in style and color to this:

Don’t laugh–I actually bought a muff!  I won’t need it at the ceremony (indoors) but am hoping to get some cute pictures at the gazebo outside the mansion.

Holy cow–sorry for the huge pic; I tried to resize but obviously did not succeed.

My mom is actually in the process of making me a hooded cape!  I hope to be able to post about it in a couple of months.  I’m pretty excited about it.

I loooove the idea of a muff!  I kind of want one now!

I’m going to wear my grandmother’s old mink stole.  It looks almost exactly like this:

If I weren’t wearing that and I had money, I would probably get an awesome bolero from TianaCHE on Etsy and wear that with a muff, or I would just get a short white faux fur coat.

I got a little white faux fur capelet from “light in the box”.  It came from china but it was $16.  I actually hope I don’t need it but if I do at least I will have it.  I am doing a matching muff that I made and have my flowers (crimson hydrageas and white roses with green ivy cascading over the top and down the front of the muff.  Since I live in Texas it could be in the mid 80s or low 50’s on my wedding day.  I wanted something in the pictures to reflect some sort of “winter look”.

@december bride: I am having the same issue! New years last year was about 45, the year before it was about 75. Texas weather is a little crazy. I am trying to decide if it is worth the money to buy a cover up of some kind or not… though the pashima idea sounds like a decent one.

@chasesgirl: That is why I decided to go with the one from light in the box.  I spent $16 so if i don’t use it no big deal.  I like the pashmina idea too.  i was just worried about having something else to have to take care of with my hands beside flowers and his ring and of course tissues.

Here is the one I got for $16 from Light in the box.  If I use it great but If I don’t oh well.  It was only $16.  Can’t really go wrong wiht that.

@chasesgirl: Thanks.  I thought the same thing.  That is why I only wanted to pay a very small amount.  If I  use it great, if I dont I am out 16 bucks and I probably spend more than that at Starbucks in a week.

@GreenEyedMoon: I’m using my grandma’s mink stole and it looks EXACTLY like yours except white!

It probably won’t actually keep me warm, but I do love the way it changes the look of my dress and gives me some modesty for the religious ceremony!
