What if it's cold? Bridal jacket ideas?

Hi guys, I'm having my reception Sept 28th (after a Costa Rica wedding in August). I'm worried it might be cold in Northern VA by that time, does anyone have ideas how to still look cute but wearing a jacket? I'm thinking of putting some kind of kimono over my wedding dress, but can't find any beautiful ones I'd want to wear...

    I've seen some really fancy leather/pleather or jean jackets for brides. I just plan on stealing FH's suit jacket if I get cold. Honestly with all the anxiety/adrenaline/excitement I probably won't notice that I'm cold.

    It was chilly on my wedding day, about 60 degrees. I'm perpetually cold all the time, and I also had a sleeveless dress.

    You can get a jacket or shawl for backup, but I didn't need one. All the excitement and adrenaline like PP said kept me warm. Or at least helped me not think about the cold.

    I’m getting married in a little over 2 weeks and everyone is saying it’ll be in the 80s but I’m always cold so I made this jean jacket! Jacket was from kohl’s and the iron on patch is from etsy. If you don’t mind making it yourself it saves a ton of money versus buying one already made!

    There's also bridal capes! I've been in love with them too. I almost want one but the week I'm getting married has had freak heat waves before so I could be sweltering.

    So I'm also a NOVA bride and will be getting married outdoors in a strapless in the MORNING on the the last week of October.

    I hate the appearance of wedding jackets, but really love certain toppers. BHLDN has some great ones!

    Personally, I decided to deal with the cold for the ceremony, but my mom got me a fur wrap for outside pictures.


    P.S. where's your venue??

    I’m getting married in late November in Illinois with a strapless dress, and I did a faux fur stoll from Etsy. It ended up being GORGEOUS with the dress!

    Ah nice, I found an old jacket I once rented on Rent the Runway on Ebay - with a minute to close - in my size, and for a fraction of the price - like it was meant to be!

    We got married last September 23rd in Rochester NY. Lows hit mid 50s that morning for us and I had a faux fur jacket ($30 on Amazon) and my leather jacket

    Hey Sasha!! As the pps have mentioned (and showed) you're totally able to look bridal and wear a jacket! I love the look of a leather jacket with a wedding gown, and you can get personalized ones on Etsy!

    I searched on Pinterest for some examples and some are so pretty!!
