    I love the ivory jacket with it! It looks put together and really cute whereas the cardigan looks like an after thought. Lovely dress color by the way!

    If I were a bridesmaid I would prefer the cardigan. The jacket isn’t my style, but I feel like everyone can wear cardigans because they go with nearly everything.

    I think the cardigan but I’m not a fan of the color. I think it clashes.

    jbecke01:  could you get them a cute wrap/shawl type of thing? i think that style would work much better with those dresses than either of those two options, IMO

    ETA: Sorry! just saw the part about you wanting to use them again.  in any case, i would keep looking! i’m sure there are options that would fit a little better with that style of dress.

    I know you think shawl would never be used again, but honestly if it were me (as a BM), that’s what I’d prefer. All the weddings I go to, I bring a wrap/shawl just in case it’s cold in the venue or whatever. I think they just look much more elegant than a cardigan.

    I voted for jacket for day of warmth and color but for actual wedding look the first is better style but not a good color. I think it is too dark so it conflicts with the dress.  Could you get the first in a different color?  Also you may want to ask them their style for re-using.

    I prefer the ivory jacket because it’s more ‘me’ & I also get cold easily so the extra warmth would be much appreciated, but I also think the color goes better with the dress than the gray cardigan.

    jbecke01:  I’d go with pashmina scarves, probably in white or silver. I don’t think either of the options given look good.

    Certainly not that dark charcoal cardigan with a royal  blue dress. And I don’t  really think the jacket looks terribly  well made or suitable either , sorry to be so blunt.

    I agree with the pp who suggested pashminas. Or a little  faux fur boleo.
