Shawls are one of the most traditional ways to maintain modesty on your wedding day. Although traditional, there are many ways to bring this look into 2019. Pearls, and heavily embroidered lacework can definitely make a shawl look beautiful, and unique. If you are choosing a shawl but want to shy away from a vintage look, choose bright white fabrics as they look new, and fresh. Not all shawls have to be white, a truly unique idea is to choose a shawl that matches your bouquet in either color or print. This is not only fun, it brings color and personality to your gown.
Capes and Capelets are super trendy in 2019, so why not utilize this style to achieve the coverage you are searching for. Capes and capelets come in so many options there is sure to be a style that we can fit with your dress. Whether you are looking for something long, or just a bit around the neck and shoulders, this look is easily customizable for you. Capes are for sure an option to consider for a modern wedding look.
Furs are guaranteed to make you look and feel luxurious. This style can be turned toward modern, or left to have a vintage feel depending on your tastes. An amazing choice for winter weddings, the fur wrap is fun and functional. If you are vegan, or just opposed to fur, there are faux fur alternatives that can still provide you with the look you are loving, without the cruelty. When choosing a fur remember there are infinite options of color, type, and texture to choose from.
Feathers, a playful twist on fur, are a very modern way to cover up. This style often is a strong choice for women worried that a jacket may hide their dress, as the texture and structure created by the feathers makes it feel a part of the dress. The flirtiness of this style is unmatched. This feathery look will not be soon forgotten by you or your guests, and as silly as it may seem, there is an elegance to the look that will long be appreciated.
Detachable cap sleeves are for brides who are looking to subtly change their look from church to reception. These cute add-ons can be as detailed as you want, and you can even treat them as a part of your accessories. Some brides choose to match detachable caps to their jewelry, choosing beads or colors that compliment their look. Overall, a detachable cap is not meant to permanently change the dress, however, if you wanted permanent sleeves added, it is always an option to have them sewn them on.
Robes seem like an accessory for the morning of your wedding, but had you ever considered layering an ornate, lace robe over your wedding gown? Now might be the time. This eccentric style is catching eyes, and could be your perfect modesty addition. Perfect for bohemian brides, this laid back look goes so far beyond what would be expected. We love the creativity in this styling idea, and you might too.
Leather Jackets are one of the edgier choices for modesty additions, a leather jacket is a sure way to show guests that the frilly dress doesn’t make you any less of a rebel. Leather, though unexpected with a bridal gown, is a beautiful combination with soft laces as the harsh contrast compliments both materials. Leather jackets can either be more subtle with use of a white leather, or be a bold bride and carry on with a black jacket. Whatever color you choose this trend is confident, and we love it!
Sweaters and Cardigans are a seemingly popular choice for fall and winter weddings. Cozy and comfortable, you are sure to feel like yourself when wearing one of these. Brides are choosing colorful knits to match their theme, and it is absolutely adorable. Color sets the sweater apart, but other genius brides are using white sweaters to seamlessly blend these cover-ups into their bridal gown. You choose which style you love the most.
Denim Jackets are a staple in everyone’s closet, but if you are a denim lover this look is for you. Denim jackets have been paired with sundresses for years, but it looks like they just moved up. It’s casual, yet classic, and brings a little bit of sunshine to your wedding day. This look makes us want to sit back and enjoy the summer sun. Adding white embroidery and details can be a cute touch, and bring a bit of the bridal bling to the traditional American look.
