Cool, chic and contemporary, the bridal cape is having a moment. They’ve been a fixture on the bridal runways over the years but 2015/2016 will see them come to the fore with an array of stunning styles, both sparkly and subtle and floor length and short, available for brides after a chic or statement cover up. There are lots of variations – Pronovias and Galia Lahav showcased stunning floor length versions for their latest collections, perfect for brides after a statement piece and an uber chic and contemporary alternative to a veil. Or if you feel you’d like a little more coverage come ceremony time, there are some breathtaking pieces that will do so beautifully and that can easily be removed come reception time. A cape is also a great way of accessorising your wedding dress with some beautifully embellished pieces to choose from if you’re looking to enhance a simple dress (and that you won’t want to take off!) From fringing to polka dots and lace to sheer tulles, check out our pick of some of the finest around…
