Updated: Jan 25, 2023

How to layer your bridal gown for colder weather months.

Whether elegant or casual, layering pieces work with bridal gowns of any style, type, and texture. We want you to have goosebumps on your wedding day… but not because you're cold!

As temperatures continue to drop, more and more brides are beginning to think about how to stay warm on their wedding day. While sleeves can provide some coverage, the wedding world has seen an uptrend in accessories aimed at providing brides with both unique and functional options. However, styling layering pieces with formal gowns isn’t a task for the faint of heart… which is why we’ve done the hard work for you!

Take a peek at our styling suggestions below and schedule an accessories appointment with one of our professional stylists to complete your totally custom look.

Big Day Denim

A bit more casual, denim reception jackets are fantastic for fall receptions or mountaintop elopements. Shop our collection of versatile denim jackets—totally customizable with your wedding date or last name. The best part? These jackets are perfect for your post-wedding wardrobe, too.

Cozy Fur

These shawls have us belting “let it snow!” from October to December. Soft, snuggly, and oh-so-cozy, fur shawls are both romantic and classic. Shop our variety of styles and colors online, or stop in to feel these divine faux furs for yourself.

Love & Leather

Lean into your edgy side with our customizable leather jackets. Choose black for a full punk-modern look, or go white for clean-cut and chic. With unique options for back design, plus name and date additions, these leather jackets look great day-of, or can be styled for rehearsal dinners and bridal showers as well.

Late Night Comfy

Your ceremony is over, first dances are done, the party’s extended well into the evening, and your late-night pizza has just arrived. Why not throw on a comfy crew neck for some film-style pizza pictures. Casual and yet still so bridal, our crew necks are perfect for little and big moments alike. Wear in the morning with mimosas or don later at night for bonfires and after parties. Crewnecks are perfect for brides who want to feel cozy and confident all day long.

Top off your bridal gown with style.
