Yes, I’m wearing a strapless gown. For our outdoor pictures I will have my grandmother’s fur coat and a pair of Uggs to keep my tootsies warm. For the ceremony I’m carrying a muff, but I’m not wearing anything to cover up my gown.

Ohh, and for the welcome dinner and minimoon I have a lovely white fur-and-suede coat, which of course I’ll be able to wear again. I’m going to invest in a few more glove/hat/scarf sets for myself, either in white or evergreen cashmere, so I can use them for the wedding and beyond.

Oh! And I’m going to have handwarmers around in case we get to do a longer pic session outdoors.

I was just asking about this today!  I had my first dress fitting so it was on my mind.  I also have a strapless dress, but it kinda has a lot going on already so I don’t know if a jacket would look right.  I like the muff idea!

I have a cape with fur around the edge’s and a muff for outside pictures. Then I will just wear my strapless dress for the ceremony. To get to the place the ceremony is taking place I have to walk across a wooden walkway that is outside so I am not sure if I should wear the cape and muff until I get inside and then take it off before I walk down the aisle?? what do you guys think??

My dress isn’t strapless, but the straps go around my shoulders. Just in case you can’t picture that, I’ve included a link to the photo. http://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/n556/callietatum/photo.jpg  (hope that works)

I bought pashminas for my BMs and one for myself. Dark green for them, and ivory for me. I’m using them as part of the gift baskets for the BMs.

I think I’ll only need the wrap for the outdoor pictures during our “first look” session; we wont be wearing them inside during the ceremony.

Mine was kind of sleeveless and knee-length. I just wore my wool frock coat over it. We had a blizzard, so there were no outdoor shots for us (thank god–I can’t handle the cold).

I used a cashmere shawl. I was planning on wearing my mom’s fur coat, but on the day of the wedding, it was too much hassle. The wrap was perfect. i was still cold, but not freezing!

I live in Alabama, but it can still get pretty chilly in January. I think I’m going to borrow my Aunt’s mink coat. I may just wear my pea coat (since it is ivory and the mink is brown) but it may look akward with my dress. I don’t plan on wearing it much, maybe just for a few pictures outside. I haven’t thought about my bridesmaids though, I don’t want them to have to fork over more money for a shawl or something! They may just have to suffer through it for a few pics :/  is that mean?
