Sweater Plus Blazer: Cooler temperatures call for layers — add a wool cardigan beneath your groom's blazer for extra warmth.

Bridesmaids in Sweaters: For the afternoon wedding ceremony, these bridesmaids all wore ivory sweaters paired with long skirts; once the wedding-party portraits were done, they changed into their own dresses for the evening reception.

Bridesmaids Gift: Another idea would be to give each bridal-party attendant a pretty shawl for them to wear during the wedding.
