Aalto gathered waist blouse - White
White cotton gathered waist shirt from AALTO.
Shivering on your way to the altar is far from fashionable. Yet it's a surprisingly tall order to find a coverup that's appropriate — and suitably warm — to wear over wedding attire. Given the array of wedding dresses available, from romantic gowns to sassy cocktail numbers, we have found as many bridal coats, capes, stoles and shrugs to pull together your bridal ensemble.
For a sleek and chic look, faux fur is the gold standard. It's a standout for bridal attire for two reasons: It's toasty warm, and it's elegant. And it's a go-to for retro brides who want to bring some vintage luxury to their winter wedding. White fur will keep the look entirely bridal, but you can also choose a color or a natural hue. For the fashion-forward bride, we found a white faux fur moto jacket to rock your nuptials. And a black or white wool capelet lends an Old Hollywood vibe.
Below are some of our favorite winter bridal cover-ups from BHLDN, Boden, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Nordstrom, David's Bridal, Amazon and more. Each style was selected to enhance, not hide, your wedding dress, because the picks are as pretty as your gown. And the best part? Prices start at $28!
Choosing where to spend your hard-earned money on Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) is tricky — especially for budget-conscious brides in the midst of wedding and honeymoon planning. You've likely already dropped a decent amount on your big day, so finding the best bargains out there is key. And mapping out your Black Friday sale-shopping strategy ahead of time always helps. With strategizing in mind, we suggest putting Walmart at the top of your shopping list. The mega-retailer just released its Black Friday deals, and there are tons of bargains in the electronics department alone. You can score everything from a big-screen TV (perfect for snuggling in front of with your honey) to a home security system to protect your nest to a Fitbit that will help you get in shape for the wedding. Ahead, we've collected the best online Black Friday tech deals Walmart has to offer. The sale kicks off online at 10pm ET on 11/21 and in stores at 6pm ET on 11/22, so get ready to snag these steals.
With Cinderella's dainty slipper in their collective memories, some brides seldom think about comfortable shoes on the big day. But there's no wisdom in wearing wobbly stilettos to an event at which you might actually want to dance. Modern brides are opting for practical wedding shoes that can be worn more than once, as opposed to extremely high-heeled shoes that leave their tootsies blistered on the honeymoon. Also, we get it: Some very tall brides prefer to seek out more sensible heels, including flats, wedges and kitten heels that may also boast cushioned footbeds and supportive straps. So if you, too, want to dance the night away at your wedding, check out this list of swoon-worthy wedding flats that are just as ravishing as 4-inch heels (and much more practical). These styles from ASOS, Nordstrom, David's Bridal and more will take you from the ceremony to the after party in blissful comfort.
Luggage is a purchase you only make once every few years (hopefully), so it's important to shop wisely. While you're of course looking for quality travel gear that's durable and roomy, you don't want to go broke before you've even gotten to the airport. Wedding and honeymoon planning is expensive enough — so avoid spending a small fortune by shopping luggage from stores like Kohl's and Walmart. The luggage sets ahead are functional, fashionable and, best of all, affordable — they're all under $150.
