Cardigan + Wedding Dress: Do or Don't?

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Be still my heart, one of my best friends got engaged over the summer and ever since I've known her, she always wanted to get married in autumn, so she can wear a cardi with her wedding dress and have pies instead of a wedding cake. So when she told me that they set the date for next October, I was thrilled! Ever since our chat I’ve been spotting the most adorable cardigan and wedding dress combinations and here are a few that make my heart skip a beat.

Loves, would you wear a cardi with your wedding dress? Have you? (I totally would). What season did you get married? Or would like to? xo
 
P.P.S: Plus, the decorated bride.

Love the cardigans! Wish it had been cool enough to wear one with mine. (I particularly love that navy/white combo.)

Also, how weird is it that A Cup of Jo posted a very similar post today?

Does it bother you that cup of Jo ripped off your post exactly? I mean with the same pics and everything?

I wore a cardigan with my dress! It got chilly so I was glad to have it.
We dyed it with the same yellow as my crinoline :o)
I have pictures on the blog of the cardigan.

We traveled by boat from our wedding to our reception so I wore a cardigan over my dress for that part of the day - it was a necessity.

That said I did love the idea of wearing a cardigan over my dress and these images have made me wish that I had invested more time in choosing one. I particularly loved the last two images.

Thanks for sharing x

Karen, boat ride to the reception sounds so romantic. Swoon!
