Alcohol? 

Sorry, I kid. 

Have you looked into boleros? Etsy has some really cute ones!

I have a pink cardigan to wear over my dress when I get cold.  I love cardigans, it looks great with my dress, and I know I’ll be able to wear it again.

I actually found mine at White and Warren which strangely enough I had never heard of but it was pink and cashmere (what I wanted) and was marked down from $220 to $60.  J. Crew also has a LOT of cardigans.  This picture is what my cardigan looks like though.  I had to search for a long time but J. Crew really did have a lot I was considering though.  What color blue are you looking for?

This wasn’t really a problem I had since it was 40C (100 farenheit) on my wedding day.  I vote for the cardigan, but it may have to be something that waits until spring’s cute bright coloured cardigans come again.  Then they’ll be everywhere.

I am wondering what to do, too! Always, ALWAYS cold. I know I’ll be cold even in my dead-of-summer wedding, since it’s indoors and that means CRAZY air conditioning.

I am thinking of having a shawl made that matches the sash in my dress… I also want to somehow cover up a tattoo on my left shoulder blade. I like boleros but I feel like they will detract from my dress a little bit.

Love the cardigans!!! I actually bought a slate blue pashmina that I won’t be wearing because our colors changed… I plan on buying a purple one for our wedding. I bought my bm’s grey pashminas. Ebay has great prices on them. Speaking of which if anyone wants a blue pashmina, I am selling mine lol!!!! Sorry for the shameless plug.

They right now have 30% off sale items but it’s final sale only but I haven’t looked at what cardigans that applies to.

Check Ann Taylor, too – they have several options in blue and are running a sale right now. I can’t copy the photos from their site, but here are a couple that I like that also come in blue:

I have the same issue… getting married on the beach in Florida in December, and wearing this dress (in diamond white, not champagne as the photo shows):

I have been looking for a cardigan, and also considered a pashmina. But I like the cardigan idea better. My colors are orange and green, and I would prefer orange, but didn’t find a lot of options. Here’s my favorite right now, from Anthropologie:

Not sure if it goes, though… which is why I started looking at pashminas. Maybe a white cashmere sweater from J.Crew would be better?

@lilyfaith: I second the alcohol option! 😀 That always helps me!

 

I like the cardigan sweater idea. If you are more of relaxed type of girl and have a laidback feel to the wedding, then that would work. Pashmina to me says more elegance. (I hope laidback and relaxed aren’t bad wedding words.)

I love blue so whatever you chose will be awesome because you are awesome and blue is awesome!

 

You have now given me something to think about. Even if I want a summer wedding, I know I will still be cold. I’m currently at work and have one pants, 2 shirts, a fleece and a blanket and I am still cold.

I also vote for a sweater! I picked our a simple yellow cardigan at H&M for only $20. I’m still looking to see if I can find a better one. J. Crew, Anthropologie, Mod Cloth are some of my go-to site to browse
