Winter brides are often faced with a certain style dilemma—showing off a beautiful dress while staying warm. While there is no shortage of beautiful dresses with long sleeves out there, sometimes they don’t always make the cut on the warmth factor. And, unfortunately, puffer jackets—while warm—don’t always make the cut on the style factor. So, what’s a bride to do!? Luckily, there are a few cover-up options that promise to keep you toasty while saying “I do” in the snow or taking your bridal portraits in the crisp autumn air that don’t detract from your bridal style, but add to it. Our favorite? Faux fur! Whether in the form of jackets, wraps, or stoles, they can perfectly contrast or complement your look while adding a touch of winter magic. These brides show you how it’s done.

From plum lips to a dark bouquet, this rich, moody beauty has a hint of Gothic romance. A regal gray fur shawl accents a silk and lace dress and vintage hairpiece for a luxe and decadent vibe.

We cannot get enough of this elegant shot! A furry white capelet pops against a blush dress in some husky winter romance; coupled with a matching bouquet of roses and a vintage car, the look is all classic glam.

We bet this bride’s shoulders are nice and toasty. A thick fur wrap in shades of brown takes on the beautiful barren tones of winter, making for a stunning statement piece over a sophisticated mermaid gown.

Check out the playful geometry in the design of this fur wrap. Even better? It’s an heirloom piece, passed down from bride Kristin’s great grandmother when she emigrated from Czechoslovakia. Don’t you love how it pairs with the A-line gown’s bronze-hued lining?

When it’s cold, but no so cold you can’t wear a short dress, a fur stole is the perfect choice—warm, but not too warm. This bride shows it’s best rocked with a sweater, tulle skirt, and nude heels—sweet and chic.

Winter brides, let real bride Magdalena serve as your bridal inspiration. Her white-on-white ensemble of a Rosa Clara gown and cropped jacket doused her in a bit of Jack Frost magic befitting the surrounding beauty of Austria, Salzburg.
