Wedding Wear: Wrap Yourself in Style

One of the biggest trends in fashion right now, wedding or not, is the shrug. Amazing how these beautiful pieces of fabric can completely transform an outfit.

Here’s a mini guide to make your and your bridesmaids’ walk down the aisle even more fabulous with handmade wraps, shrugs and coats found on Etsy. And happily, there’s a look for almost every bridal party.


Delicate. See-through or very light fabric adds an extra detail without overshadowing your dress. And adding a brooch or jewels can match details in your dress or jewelry. {Handmade by www.CRBoggsDesigns.etsy.com}




Knit. There’s so much texture, color and options with knitwear, not to mention warmth. And with the right design, it can be formal enough, and fabulous enough, for weddings. {Handmade by www.TickledPinkKnits.etsy.com}



Detailed. Beading and embroidery in your wrap can complement your dress details, or make a simple dress shine. {Handmade by www.MGMart.etsy.com}




Textured. When your dress is mostly smooth or uniform in texture, adding a different texture can make the entire look pop. {Handmade by www.thesocialseam.etsy.com}



Bold. Why stop at the shoulders? For a truly bold, unexpected look try an overcoat in a complementary color, or one of your wedding colors. {Handmade by www.Countessa.etsy.com}
