I definitely think it looks lovely and soft.  I bought a coat years ago, and changed out the buttons, and it totally made the coat look awesome!  I think it would be great, you could change the buttons for the wedding, and then again for every day after the wedding is over.  Good choice I think!  I like their shoes too!  πŸ™‚

That does look so soft and pretty! I totally just sent it to my mom to wear over the dress she’s getting to wear because it looks so nice.  And I agree about wanting to wear something again.  I looked at wedding boleros for over my dress and then realized I’d be happier in a cardigan and I’d wear it again so I’m all about things that can be used again.

The one and only bridesmaids dress I wore was from Pyramid Collection.  I hate them.  They are too expensive, and their quality is crap.  I ditched that $200 dress the day after the wedding.

That sweater is cute, but I bet you could find something nicer for less somewhere else.

If you still have plenty of time, I have found killer deals on cashmere cardigans after Christmas.  A white cashmere cardigan is timeless, and with post-christmas sales, you can probably get it cheaper than that sweater.

Plus, a sweater with all that chunkiness may take away from the gorgeousness that is your dress.

What about a beautiful, synthetic pashmina?  That way, you avoid the itchiness, you don’t have the bulk, and you’d be warm.  I’ve rocked just a pashmina and a cocktail dress at a winter Michigan wedding, and I have been warm enough.  Not stand outside for 15 minutes warm, but travel between cars and buildings warm enough.  You could get one in white, or you could get one with a pop of color to go with any other accessories you might have.  I have a gorgeous bright blue one.

that jacket doesn’t really look warm enough for Iowa in March.  But, maybe you’ll get lucky and your wedding will be on a random warm day.  It happens sometimes!  Every so often it could get up to the 70’s in March!

Anyways, if you really want to be warm in 30 degree temperatures I think you will need something better than that white jacket you picked.  And something that isn’t polyester.

If it were me though I wouldn’t worry so much about the cold.  You will probably not be outside much, and if you are you will stay warm because of all the adrenaline.

I don’t feel right about sharing someone else’s wedding pictures, but one of my friends has gorgeous winter wedding pictures with snow in the background wearing a deep red pashmina.  They’re simply gorgeous.

There were a ton of cute pictures that I found by doing a google image search for “pashmina with wedding dress.”

 

Not trying to convince you of anything here, but I love that look.  I think it would amazing to have a simple, colorful wrap with that lace dress you bought.
