    I would do option C, kind of.  I would warn them that the weather is unpredicatable in October, and give them the option to purchase the shawl at their own cost.  I’m always hot, so it typically wouldn’t bother me not to have one.  I could probably suck it up, unless you wanted everybody to be uniform in pictures.

    What about cardigans or something else cute?  How old are your bridemsaids?  The shawls look very mature.

    @hollyberry4:  They are called shawls…unless you are talking about something else.  In my mind, a shawl is a glorified scarf.  Anyway, I think the problem I see is that it is very matronly to wear a matching scarf/shawl.  However, cardigans would give your wedding a different look than you’re perhaps going for.  Do you have a theme or anything?  

    Here are some girls with cardigans:

    Here are some with pashminas (a shawl/scarf of a thicker material):

    Not sure about the style of shawl here, but this should give you an idea about colors!

    And finally, the one bridesmaid’s shrug is pretty nice:

    Or here are some girls with red dresses and nude/tan/taupe pashminas:

    @hollyberry4:  

    I agree with @peachacid:  the pashminas in my opinion are probably a better option. They are thicker so would keep them warm.
