Hello brides and brides-to-be!
I am getting married on November 27th, 2020 in Estes Park, Colorado in the mountains/forest. For those not familiar with this area, there is a 95% chance that there will be snow on the ground during this time of year if not also snowing. I am a huge winter person, as if my fiance (he proposed at the top of the highest ski lift in North America in the middle of a blizzard), but people think I'll regret not wearing a shawl. My concern is that a shawl during the ceremony is going to cover my dress than I'm absolutely obsessed with. Our ceremony is only for 30 minutes max so I know I'll be fine, though I will likely get a little red from the cold. My plan right now is to wear a shawl walking down the aisle, taking it off during the ceremony, and then putting it back on when go to leave the alter. There are standing heaters around the guest seating areas so the heat from them will hopefully emanate enough to reach us at the alter at least a little bit.
I just want opinions whether in my favor or not. I've taken care of my guests and bridesmaids to ensure they will be warm (standing heaters, hot apple cider to sip on, and bridesmaids will keep their shawls on throughout the whole ceremony). My parents think it's time for me to consider how comfortable I'll be now. Haha
Thanks in advance!
P.S. I'd love to see everyone else's dresses and/or outdoor ceremony photos!
My wedding dress!
