Wedding Trend: 5 Fab Alternative Cover Up Ideas for Brides

While we’ve been loving the sun these past few days, Irish couples planning a wedding during the summer months by now know sun-filled days aren’t a guarantee! Just a few days ago we were rooting out the jackets and popping on the heating thanks to some seriously chilly days but it isn’t exactly furs and stoles weather either. If you’re worried about goosebumps as the evening sets in at your summer wedding, you might want to have something cosy on standby so today we’ve got some super stylish ideas for you. We’re taking inspo from real brides who have rocked some gorge cover ups on their Big Day. When it comes to staying snug, anything goes these days and brides are letting their personality shine through, donning everything from embellished capes and uber cool blazers to cute cardies and lots of lovely leather and denim options too! If you’re getting married in winter – it goes without saying, some of these guys would work a treat too…
