I am looking for help, suggestions, ideas, and images for possible cover-ups for my Maid and Matron of Honor (and possibly the rest of the bridesmaids) for the ceremony. My Maid and Matron of Honor both have rather large tattoos which they would like to cover for the ceremony (since it is in a catholic church). My sister who is my Matron of Honor would also just prefer to wear a bolero/cover-up for extra coverage. The dresses are Navy (David’s Bridal Marine) and my dress is ivory. The flowers will be a mixture of ivory and bight pinks. I am considering navy or ivory cover-ups. We have ruled out any bolero from David’s Bridal because my sister says they are too old ladylike (which I agree with). She suggested ivory cardigans, but I’m not sure how that will look. So any ideas/suggestions are much appreciated.
This is the dress my sister (Matron of Honor) is wearing: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Short-Cotten-Sateen-Spaghetti-Strap-Dress-F14138_Bridal-Party-Bridesmaids-Shop-By-Length-Short-Bridesmaid-Dresses

I have found this coverup but I’m not sure if it’s too informal http://www.tjformal.com/48771/560784/Jackets/Sophia-Tolli-Jacket-Shrug-Crepe-BY1986SRCR.html
Mrs. Thimble blogged about her bridesmaids wearing cardigans http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/07/25/cardigans-wedding/ but I haven’t seen any visuals of the look put together.
So I am asking the hive for any suggestions or pictures or ideas for what I can have my bridesmaid wear for more coverage during the ceremony!
