    Hello people!

    Just thought I would share these lovely bridal jackets that i have found...

    Just wondering if anyone else is looking into bridal jackets/shrugs?

    I've got two. One lacy pretty one in dark ivory to match my dress and one plain black bolero to match my black shoes. I'm not sure which i'll wear yet, if any as I keep changing my mind. My dress has a corset back so I don't want to wear it all the time or I waste that!

    :D

    i want one, but i will probably only wear it for when we go outside for the pics, seeing as were having it all in a hotel i dont know if i can justify spending all that money (they quite expensive) for something i'll only wear for an hour or so xx

    I got both of mine second hand :D I think theb ivory one was £8 and the black one, which is second hand but wasn't worn so still has the tags on, for £6 in a charity shop. I nearly paid for a new one but they are expensive.

    I'm having a bolero but I don't know if i'll wear it yet - depends on how warm it is (August wedding) and how much weight I'll loose by then :) If I make it to the magic ten i might as well sell my dress on ebay and buy a mini skirt, lol!

    I'm having a plain green one (or a plain silver one!) I got from Monsoon in the sale :) There are loads of places that do similar styles and as they aren't labeled as 'bridal' they are much less expensive...

    They are really pretty! I want something to keep me warm if it's chilly (early May - could go either way!) but I can't think of anything that would go with my dress. Possibly something feathery, but I've got broad shoulders and it would make me look like a rugby player!! *sigh*

    I fail to see how anyone with a figure enough to wear the gorgeous dress you have could ever look like a feathered rugby player but think you should try one one and let us judge.... :)

    I need a full blown Coat to go with my dress! Am hoping to find something a tiny bit goth to add a bit more Kick to the 'Disney' ness that is my dress :)

    try very lovely coat from the darkangel website. I adore their coats - really high quality and a fraction of the price a wedding shop charges. They use proper velvet not cheapo stuff and lovely satin lining. You can choose your colours and have items made to measure. Not lots of styles but the ones they have are just gorgeous.

    That coat is gorgeous :)

    I love the dresses on dark angel, if I manage to get a place at the medieval fayre next Christmas I'm having one of those dresses to wear!

    Popple where can I get something to wear on my head? Says in the rules that ladies must have heads covered?

    Sorry gone a bit off subject :)

    For the medieval fayre? Your best bet is to get an alice band and tuck fabric into it to cover your hair. Depends what look you want - I have tonnes of stuff here so can take some pics and give you ideas, just let me know what the event is for etc and I can sort ideas :)
