Cover Up With One of These Must-Have Bridal Accessories

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 14, 2012

A bride may want to order a cover up for her wedding dress because she wants her arms covered for a religious wedding ceremony, she’s getting married in winter or a cold climate, or simply that the cover up in question is so fabulous she can’t get married without it!

Brides still shopping for their wedding-day look may find it hard to resist the jackets, boleros, shrugs and other cover ups making their way down the Spring 2013 Bridal Market runways. Styles range from fur and faux fur, in white as well as other colors, sheer jackets, “pop overs” that literally pop right over you head in lace or tulle, and organza boleros with three-dimensional detailing.

Here you can see three different cover up styles that editors saw on the runways:

Alfred Angelo designed a Venise lace jacket with white bridal buttons up the back. One can easily switch from the solemn ceremony setting to the party atmosphere of a wedding reception in a matter of seconds.

JLM Couture showed a fur bolero with crystal embellished tulle inserts, the perfect accessory for a winter wedding even if it’s not snowing outside.

Exclusive to David’s Bridal stores is this embroidered tulle pop-over with three covered buttons in the back. The metallic thread adds a bit of shimmer to a bride’s wedding-day look.

Posted by Kim on Jun 11, 2012

Searching for bridesmaid dresses for your nearest and dearest? Make sure the dresses you choose can be worn again. One of the best ways to do this is by choosing a style in a neutral color, like navy, champagne, and of course, black. One can never have too many black dresses – they look great on almost everyone and can be dressed up or down in a variety of ways (some of these bridesmaid styles can even be worn to work with a blazer and pumps!).
