Cozy Wedding Wraps – 5 Stylish Choices to Keep You Warm

If you are having a fall or winter wedding you may want to consider adding a wrap to  your wedding attire. It can create a new dimension to your overall look and at the same time will keep you cozy and warm.

There are quite a few wedding wrap options. Here are 5 great choices for you:

Cardigan Sweater

The style of your wrap should complement your gown and the formality of your wedding. For example, a fur stole would not be the best choice for a casual backyard wedding, but a vintage shawl would be perfect.

And don’t be afraid to add color as seen in many of the photos below. Coordinating the color of your wrap with your flowers creates a beautiful vision.

One way to create a unique look is to look in vintage shops for a wrap that will add a special touch. The last shawl in the first collage below is vintage.

When looking for photos for this post I came across a lot of Etsy sellers who make wedding wraps, so you may want to look in to that option, as well.

Take a look at the collages I created for you below and find the wrap that is perfect for you! There are more choices on our Pinterest board.

  1. Would it look nice for the bride to wear a shawl in the same color as the bridesmaids dresses, but have the bridesmaids wear tan shawls? Specifically the bridesmaids will wear burgundy dresses with tan shawls. I can’t decide if the brides shawl should be ivory to match her gown, or could it be burgundy to match the girls dresses?


    • Hi Sandy, I think there are a lot of options and really, it is a matter of opinion. The main thing is that I wouldn’t recommend the bride wearing a burgundy shawl and the bridesmaids wearing tan/ivory. For bridesmaids I suggest matching burgundy shawls. For the bride I suggest ivory to match her dress. If the bridesmaids were not wearing shawls I think burgundy would be fine for the bride. But since they are wearing shawls I don’t think it will work for the bride to wear a shawl that is the same as theirs. I think it will help if you can see the various looks. Here is a link to a search I did on Pinterest for “Bridesmaids Shawls”. I hope this helps! Scroll down and there are quite a few examples that I think will help you see how various combinations look.

      Best wishes!
