Hi bridal babes, it’s Lauren from I Love Love Events here with a fabulous fashion post for you. Winter is about to roll in and while wedding season is over, there are still couples tying the knot every weekend, with backdrops of changing leaves, snow-capped mountains, and twinkly lights. I’m happy to have rounded up the perfect, necessary accessory for you winter (and fall and spring) brides, the cover-up. If you’re a bride getting married in the colder months, a cover-up shouldn’t be an after thought, it should be a well thought out part of your bridal look. You’ll be wearing this accessory in many of your portraits and if you have an outdoor ceremony, you may even walk down the aisle in your cover-up. The topper you choose to pair with your gown can completely change the vibe of your look. Just check out the photos below. A cover-up can add edge, can add glamour, sparkle or cozy. This accessory can cost as little as $50 and up to $1,000’s for a new, real fur coat. I suggest hunting around in your grandma’s closet becuase your cover-up just might be your something borrowed. I also make suggestions for a few vintage items in the list below, a cover-up could also be your “something old.” Whichever you chose, a unique cover-up will only add to your wedding day look!
