Cover Ups????

Hi all!

Given that we are all getting married in November I was just wondering how many brides are opting for a bolero (or anything similar to cover up and take the chill off?!) I'm in two minds - my dress is Casablanca, Blue by Enzoani (which has basically got a lace overlay), I will be wearing a veil and can't decide whether or not it will all be too much with a small bolero as well...on the other hand it is a church wedding (tyring to be respectable) and it is winter after all???? Ah dilema! x

    I might get something to wear between photos to keep warm if I need it but most people have said ill be so hyped up ill not feel the cold lol. I think i might get the BM's some tho.

    I am in the same position due to the neckline of my dress I dont want it covered up in the pics.

    I have a fur shrug from Coast, I originally bought them for my bridesmaids but tried one on when I got home and loved it so I bought one for myself too! Not going to wear it in the church but may wear it outside for photos etc.
  • I bought the lace shrug from Monsoon, won't necessarily keep me that warm but it's something and we won't be outside that much. Plus its so pretty!

    My dress is lace and has an extra bit to attach to it, that creates a longer train. However, I don't want a really massive train (civil ceremony), so I'm having that made into a bolero cos I don't like the top of my arms image Also, the lace matches my dress image It won't keep me any warmer, but hopefully it'll look pretty image

    My dress does come with a matching bolero if I want it, but I did not get it as I thought it looked so pretty without it, and I am quite proud of my arms as I am a bit of a weightlifter, but now I am not sure. More than the cold I am worried that I get blotchy marks when I am nervous, and I am worried that my chest will go all red. I am sure this will calm down after the ceremony when I have relaxed a bit, so I would take it off then.

    Maybe I should get some make-up to cover my chest and neck. It is really worrying me now.
