Keeping Warm at fall Weddings: The Cape Trend 


Fall is a gorgeous time of year to get married. With trees sporting stunning arrays of reds, yellows, and oranges, you have the perfect backdrop for your nuptials and the makings of a truly striking wedding photo album. However, the weather can occasionally be an issue during the fall. You shouldn’t let that deter you from having the fall wedding of your dreams because there are ways to combat the cooling weather. As temperatures fall off, you’ll want to be sure that you can stay warm during your fall wedding. 

 

The Cape Trend 

 

2018 is set to be a big year for the cape trend. Online market place Etsy analyzed thousands of searches and are predicting that bridal capes will be trending in 2018, especially during the colder fall and winter months. Their study actually shows that searches for bridal capes increased 44% from last year. 

 

These capes can be purchased singularly or as a part of your bridal dress. The trend is heating up to the point that designers are now including bridal capes in wedding dresses. If you think a bridal cape might be too much, you can also elect to purchase a separate capelet, which is slightly less dramatic and covers less of your arms and back. This is a good option for an early fall wedding if you’re not sure how warm the weather will be. 

 

Why Choose a Bridal Cape? 

 

Wedding capes have a few benefits for your fall wedding. The first is that bridal capes are obviously a great way to stay warm during a fall wedding. They wrap around your shoulders and help your body retain heat. In addition, bridal capes and capelets are also a great way to dress up a wedding gown. If you elect for a simpler bridal gown, a cape can add some depth and layers to enhance the look. They’re also stunning in photos and provide another element of sophistication. 

 

Other Ways to Keep Warm 

 

If a cape doesn’t fit your style, that’s okay! There are still other ways to stay warm during an outdoor fall wedding. One of the easiest ways to do so is by purchasing a sleeved dress. This is also becoming a trend increasing in popularity and there are many stunning designs out there. You can also opt for something like a fur shawl to cover your shoulders if the temperatures drop on your wedding day. Finally, a pair of elegant white or ivory gloves is another way to keep the cold at bay during a fall wedding.
