We’re looking forward to seeing temperatures rise (sooner rather than later, please!), but while it’s still chilly outside, we can’t help but daydream about beautiful bridal cover-ups. For those tying the knot in the cooler months, adding a beautiful wrap or bolero to your big-day look is a chic way to stay warm at your wedding. Here are a few stylish options for winter brides.

1. A faux-fur jacket is the perfect topper for a vintage-chic bride.

10. For a super-stylish aesthetic, add an ivory coat to your wedding ensemble. The short-dress/long-jacket combination is great for a cold-weather city hall wedding.
