We’ve all heard of and saw fake fur stoles as a cover up option to keep winter brides warm, but this season capes and boleros are the cover up for the cool! Stunning crafted in feminine fabrics such as lace, feather or silk chiffons and gently adorned with pearls, crystals or sequins, capes and boleros are a contemporary option for stylish brides.
Adding a cape to your wedding gown is an excellent way of giving you different day and night looks; simply slip off your cape for the evening reception and dazzle your guests with your hidden gown underneath.
Jenny Packham’s glamorous Santorini wrap is bang on bridal trend this season with its sumptuous ostrich feathers and silk satin lining. The cape has a distinct nod to the exuberant 1920s and will add opulence to your bridal ensemble.
You could choose to wear a cape instead of a veil such as this timeless scalloped edge lace cape by Marisol Aparicio. The cape is buttoned up at the back with pearl shaped buttons.
Perhaps you are a vintage lover? This delicate genuine 1930s Irish lace cape from The Vintage Wedding Dress Company will certainly become a family heirloom in your house!
This Amelie cape from Louise Broad oozes a beautiful ethereal and romantic air with its soft ultra light silk chiffon layers.
If a cape is too fashion forward for your liking but you still want to have some coverage around your shoulders a bolero is a perfect option.
This metallic lace bolero is accented with crystals and sequins.
Also by Justin Alexander this tulle pleated bolero is scattered with pearl clusters, bugle beads and sequins that will provide plenty of sparkle on your big day!
