Brides + Cozy Pretty Sweaters

If you have a winter wedding or just for a cooler evening, I love the idea of pairing a pretty sweater with your wedding dress. A pale pink is so pretty and super romantic.

I love how her sweater plays off the peach in her dress – and his scarf is pretty killer also :)

Or you can add a pop of color. Loving the bright yellow that some brides are selecting.

Or maybe a red sweater to match some fabulous red shoes!

Love her super warm sweater – it goes with her dress so perfectly and brings a vintage vibe.

You can find pretty sweaters lots of places, but Anthropologie always seems to have the loveliest options – with pretty lace and lots of ruffles. It also looks like that is where the first bride found her sweater. :)

If you haven’t considered a sweater, I think it would make such a pretty + fun touch to your day – and would keep you fashionably warm!

  1. These sweaters are beautiful. Great suggestions on looking good and keeping warm. I just love photos in hte rain too – so romanitc!

  2. Especially in February!

  3. My dress comes with a little bolero but I don't really like it, what a great alternative for my November wedding!
    I love all those sweaters, they're so cute! The brides all look amazing in them!

  4. agree, these are so cute!

  5. I am so in love with the dress-sweater combo of the bride in the photo second from the top (with the groom who is wearing a scarf!) Can you please tell me where her dress is from? So pretty and whimsical…

  6. Thanks so much for this post! I'm getting married in less than 3 weeks in NJ so it's still chilly here. I have been struggling to figure out what to do to keep warm for pictures outside and I love your suggestions! Perfect timing with this post!

  7. oooh i've been looking for pictures of that second wedding dress for ages!!! LOVE that dress.

  8. Oh, I so want a cardigan and my wedding's in June. But I'm always cold and always wearing cardigans.

  9. I love this idea! I wore a cardigan over my dress + I loved how it looked. I love that yellow sweater from Anthro! So cute! xo

  10. Anonymous – Found out some info on her dress (second photo spread) "the dress is from Les Habitudes from Los Angeles next to the Ivy on Robertson. It is a 2 piece. The skirt cinches. They have many other one of a kind mix and match. They are made in Paris. Some of the lace is vintage that is used. April was our salesperson." Hope that helps! It is a gorgeous combo.

  11. I love the top sweater- the cropped look over the wedding dress. If anyone is into Jane Austin, the BBC just did Emma in a three part series and the girls wear gorgeous empire seamed dresses with cropped jackets. really pretty and a very fun look! thanks for sharing!

  12. I adore the yellow bolero…and the couple themselves! The bride's smile is so jubilant!

  13. This is such an inspirational post!! I LOVE a bride in a simple sweater. So classic. LOVE IT!!

  14. I debated about getting a sweater to wear with my dress, and now I wish I had! These are all adorable.

    Still looks good though.

  16. Wow! Especially love the first bride with the black umbrella…so sophisticated. She looks like Audrey Hepburn, very graceful. Great to see people shooting in the rain – it doesn't always have to be a sunny day to be gorgeous. Love it!

  17. Love this post. A great reminder that brides don't have to freeze or bare their shoulders to look AMAZING!

  24. It’s over a year since the post. But…does anyone know where I might find the first bride’s ballet wrap sweater for my daughter to wear at her wedding in January 2012.

  25. Jan, not sure if you are still looking but I found this very similar wrap sweater.
