Often my non-summer brides ask me what they should wear over their dresses in case it is chilly on wedding day. I usually suggest a wrap, bolero or a shrug of some kind. Because I am so often asked for suggestions, I am always on the hunt for pretty options for my brides so when I saw MaryandAngelika’s Etsy shop, I was excited to see the different options!
Mary and Angelika are a mother/daughter team who make beautiful bolero jackets and shrugs for weddings and special occasions. They have different styles, sleeve lengths and fabrics as well as colors to pick from – I saw a gorgeous purple, black, yellow, couple of shades of blue, silver and of course, white and ivory! Love the splash of color these would add to a bridal ensemble!
Pricing varies based on fabric and design but to give you an idea, the long sleeve satin jacket on the left is $70 and the silver silk dupioni design on the right is $85. Each piece is custom made to your measurements so make sure you plan accordingly with regard to time before the wedding!
Mothers of the Bride pay attention – if you have your eye on a gorgeous strapless gown but want to cover up your arms (VERY common request from my moms), these would be perfect for you as well!
