Shrugging off the chill.
So it’s happened, summer is over, the nights are drawing in and the temperature is dropping. Having finished the hectic summer season, we in the industry are getting ready to don our wellies, zip up our gillet and prepare for battle with whatever winter throws at us.

Being a B2B with an autumn/winter wedding can be magical but with so much to think about its only too easy to completely miss the most obvious aspects of your day, such as… will I freeze !!!!

It happens, you’ve fallen in love with your dream dress but it’s strapless, backless, t-length and so thin you’ll be your very own ‘something blue’. So what can you do? Shrug it off.

No, seriously.

Vintage is in and shrugs are back. Looking fab can be practical and add a whole other dimension to your style, giving you two different looks on your day. Sounds good to us!

So what options are available?

winter weddings

Become a winter goddess in gorgeous soft fur (available in a small array of colours). Shrugs like these take nothing away from a dress but can add a great new neckline and keep you cosy whilst your busy posing for your own personal paparazzi of the day, leaving the big reveal until you get inside. I can see the VB pouts, now.

For B2B’s with a church wedding this one’s for you, classical and covered, this bolero is just chic!

With gorgeous scalloped edging, long sleeves and soft lace, styles like this are perfect if you’re looking to make a statement.

We recommend wearing with a simple, low key dress such as the one pictured.

During dress appointments B2B’s are forever telling about the areas of their bodies they are conscious of, (you’re beautiful, ladies!!!) Whatever makes you feel comfortable is right for you.

A short sleeved jacket like this has so much beautiful lace detail that all the attention will be taken off the bits you don’t like and onto the bits you do! Light weight designs such as these are perfect for brides of all seasons looking for that extra cover until the evening.

Or what about a cap sleeve? The simplicity of the soft lace is an absolute winner for me, not to mention the subtle embellishments scattered throughout the design, perfect if you’re after a bit of sparkle and brilliant to wear all year round.

So what style suits you and your dress the best? Are you going to brave the cold this winter or shrug off the chill?
