Jacket/Bolero/Shrug help needed!

Highland Wedding Trauma! May 2009

I'm trying to find a jacket of some description to keep me warm if the weather turns against us. My dress is deep ivory, strapless silky satin and fitted. I'm wearing a veil in the church but would like a jacket or cover up of some description to wear at the reception. I'm a size 6 and 5ft 2 - which means I'm really struggling to find anything small enough. Has anyone seen any little jackets (preferably 3/4 length sleeves or longer). I'd love a vintage lace type or even something with a marabou trim for a bit of fun! Grateful for any help!!




  • Hi

    I am 4 ft 11 (and H2b is 6ft 2!!) and we are getting married in 19days!!

    I had one made by the tailoress who did the alterations on my dress and its beautiful (belero jacket). THink she charged 70 quid which I thought was well worth it

    I got a really nice pashmina from Accessorize for £20, and Debenhams do really nice ones for around £15.

    Even though I'm getting married in July, we're having fireworks at 10pm, and as I'm always cold, I thought a pashmina would be a good idea to stay warm.

    Hope this helps xx
