After the wedding itself, the second busiest aspect of planning is creating a wedding registry. It should be one of your fist tasks and you should make certain all of the essentials are included. A basic item all newlyweds should get is an amazing new sheet set — or two or three or four sets. You'll want to create a bedroom that's a cozy retreat for you and your new hubby, so use our handy list to start adding your bedding basics your wedding registry checklist.
We've done tons of research to find the best sheet sets for new brides, according to the best reviews on the internet. We also looked at thread count (we recommend no less than 200), materials, weave type, organic options, design, price, quality and more. Phew! There are a lot of sheets out there, and the materials run the gamut — organic cotton, long-staple cotton, chemical-free cotton, Egyptian cotton, microfiber, sateen, satin, flannel and more are among your choices. When you register, you peruse this list to decide what's most important to you for creating your new nest of newlywed coziness.
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!
