Summer weddings are all about strapless dresses, beach destinations and showing a little extra skin under the sun. But, after the sun goes down and the stars come out, you may need a little something extra to add to your wedding dress. 

The extravagant feather number above is a great way to switch up your look while adding a little extra warmth. It's fringe-y feel and blush color makes it a dream come true for both a vintage or modern bride.

If you're looking for something with a little lighter coverage but that still has the classic elegance of a bride, lace is a great choice. It can add extra coverage to your arms and shoulders without taking too much away from your wedding dress. Lace is a perfect option for everything from beach destination weddings to vintage backyard weddings.

Getting married on the Fourth of July? It doesn't get any better than this effervescent American flag accessory above. Paired with a bright red lip and a handsome groom at your side, you'll be sure to start some celebratory fireworks.

If you're wearing a strapless dress and want your shoulders to be covered for the ceremony, this beaded mini shawl below is a stylish way to add a little cover. It's a very Gatsby-esque accessory that would look spectacular at a vintage or art deco wedding.

Sometimes you need a little extra to complete your bridal look. The full lace cape (above, left) and bejeweled shoulder necklace (above, right) are both stunning personal touches that will add a little fashionable flair to your summer wedding.

We think that gold sequins are always a good idea! This show stopping jacket below is a trendy cover up for a modern bride that is looking to make a statement.
