I’m getting married in August but it’s in Finland where it’s not always so warm especially in the evenings and my dress is strapless. Any ideas what I can have to keep warm?
*I looked at those fake fur shrugs but I’m not trusting of how fake they are
*I also considered a shawl but it’s not something I look comfortable in, I look like a child in her mother’s clothing!

Are you worried that they will sell you a real fur? I doubt this will happen because real fur costs so much more. Would you like a bolero?

Look up Google Images of Boleros

I bought a cute, simple cardigan 🙂

@spitfire229: I feel like the bolero would need to be the same material as my dress and I’m reeeeeally not into that look. I’m not sure a woollen type bolero would go with my satin-y dress
@bells: To keep within my budget I’d have to buy from China on eBay and I just don’t trust it…
@KaitlinHudson: Do you happen to have a picture of your cardigan? I’d be interested to see what style it is. Or anything similar.

I had a little cardigan like KaitlinHudson. I didn’t wear it much though even though nights in Colorado do get cold.

This etsy seller is actually the woman who did my alterations and she is amazing!

I’m getting married in 3 weeks and it could be nice, or it could be cold. I haven’t given this a lot of thought but I have a cream colored shawl of alpaca wool that’s really warm and/or I can wear my grandmother’s fur coat if it’s really cold. My friend got married in March in New York (cold and wet) and she had a white coat that she wore to get to the ceremony. But once inside the temperature was kept high enough that people didn’t have to wear coats and sweaters. Just something to think about.

@KaitlinHudson: I will definately keep something like that in mind. It’s cute and simple
@suttonista: That’s really beautiful but unfortunately way out of my price range!
@AustenNut: That’s true about being inside. I didn’t really think about it but most of the time we will be outside and our photos will be done during the warmer hours so maybe I can get away with nothing..
