@karenlee07:  your groom’s suit jacket! Or maybe a lace bolero?

I’m planning to wear a blazer or tuxedo jacket over mine, but my bridal “look” is a little less traditional.

I’ve seen girls do cardigans & it looked really cute. Or ditto on a bolero/shrug.

@karenlee07:  a cardigan wouldn’t look silly necessarily, it really depends on the cardigan and style of your dress. I purchased a dark purple plain cardigan to wear over my dress but ended up not using it… You can find nicely embellished cardigans or even but a plain cardigan & see if your seamstress can jazz it up with some appliques/lace/beadwork/etc… Other than a cardigan I’d suggest a bolero or a pahsmina/wrap or maybe a fur stole or scarf if it’s in the winter…

@karenlee07:  A coat like every other time you’re outdoors and cold!

I have a white faux fur bolero for my nov wedding.  Might have a large scarf I can wrap around myself inside as well

@BeckyS0:  +1!  I plan on getting cardigans for myself and my bridesmaids if it gets chilly out.  I think it adds a nice “fun” touch!

I was only cold when we wen outside (winter). Otherwise I was quite comfortable with the huge dress I was wearing. But then I was hot during dancing. Anyway, I thought about if I might be cold during dinner but I was not at all. I ha a faux fur wrap for outdoor pictures that I could have used I guess, but I didn’t need to.

@karenlee07:  if you are wearing a full dress, the only part that may get cold is your shoulders and arms.  i got married the same weekend you are getting married so i know that weather at that time of year can be hit or miss in ontario. 

i am always cold and spend most of my time in a warm climate.  my mother was an absolute sweetheart.  she was so worried that i would get cold and made me a lightweight furry wrap just days before the wedding.  she even embroidered my initials into it.  i did wear it for some outside pics but didn’t need it at all most of the time.  my dress kept me warm.
