    I’m having a winter wedding and my girls are actually wearing a strapless knee length dress! (they picked it!). I’m not too worried about the cold because they shouldn’t have to be outside much. They can get into their dresses at the venue and the ceremony and reception are in the same place. The only times they will be outside in their dresses are to/from taking pictures (indoors) and maybe after the wedding. They are free to wear their coats at that point. I did buy them pashminas just in case it is chilly in the venue, but I kind of doubt they’ll even use them.

    I had the girls buy white faux fur wraps.  December is PA, you never know what the weather will be.  We are getting pictures taken at Washington Crossing park. I am hoping the wraps will keep them warm enough for pictures.  Plus the girls have muffs for the hands.

    I’m not a big fan of black and navy – why not a yellow pashmina?

    Would your Maid/Matron of Honor reuse a bolero? As if not would you be better getting a pashmine as it’d be cheaper?

    @retsud:

    I think they’re too rectangular and long for a throw, though saying that it’d be the right shape folded up longways for going at the end of a bed. Have you asked her what she thinks, at least then you wont be worrying if you’re doing the right thing or not?

    Honestly I think the pashmina could be used more, even by a tomboy everyone needs a scarf? I voted for the pashmina

    I am having a winter wedding, but it’s in California, so although it can be very cold(close to freezing) it won’t be as cold as the East coast. They will only be outside for pictures as well. Everything else will be indoors. I got them long dresses though. I did buy them a wrap to cover their shoulders at the church…..but otherwise they are on their own 🙁

    I would let them choose between the pashmina and bolero…if the tomboy would be more comfortable in the bolero, and the other wants the pashmina then let them get what they want. Are you taking a lot of outdoor pics? because if you aren’t then who cares what they keep warm with from car to inside 🙂
