Jersey Girls {Part 2}

18 July, 2011

I promised a follow up to my post on bridesmaids in cardigans, and here it is! And after all, why should your girls get to have all the pretty? There are so many reasons why this works for brides as well. First, if you’re having a religious ceremony and want to cover your shoulders, they’re a sweet and more laid back alternative to sleeves or a bolero. Or, if you’re getting married at a time of year where the weather isn’t going to be brilliant, wearing a cardie will be your saving grace through a long couple shoot (nothing worse than trying to look hot and relaxed when all you can think about his how chillsome you’re feeling!). Or your cardie could be a late night addition – perfect for wearing as your guests see you off into the cold evening air. Plus, cardigans are a great style choice for an autumn or winter wedding – they add a pop of colour to your white dress and work in anything from soft, neutral colours to statement brights. Have a look at these lovelies, worn by real brides around the web…

And who could forget the ultimate jersey girl? Not jersey, darling, but angora. Still, Kate knew how to work her evening cover up. What about you? Would you wear a cardigan with your wedding dress?

    The cardigans look gorgeous on those brides. I am especially drawn to the yellow ones. They add such nice warmth :) And Kate looks amazing as always!

    Love the first one, and of course Kate’s! The coloured ones are great too for those summer evening weddings!
