If you don’t wish to wear a buttoned up wedding gown on your big day, but still want to keep warm during the ceremony, an elegant bridal jacket is the perfect bridal accessory for an autumn or winter wedding. A small lace top will look gorgeous with a strapless satin gown, but you can also opt for a fluttery fabric like gauze, or glittery sequins if you want an utterly glamorous bridal jacket. Wearing a cute short cape is another option to cover your shoulders, and we love this trendy bridal accessory because it adds a touch of elegance and elevates even the simplest wedding outfits. You can wear the cape to the ceremony and take it off afterwards which is a great bridal jacket alternative to transform your wedding outfit at the reception.

While lace bridal jackets and elegant scarves are great for autumn months when the weather is still quite warm, faux fur is more appropriate for winter weddings. Faux fur will add luxury to your wedding outfit, but you can also wear a faux feather shrug, which is equally glamorous. Think short boleros and gilets that you will want to tuck into something really warm, or opt for an elegant faux fur stole tied with a satin ribbon if you just want a statement bridal accessory. You can pick a style in a hue that matches the shade of your wedding dress, or add a pop of colour to your styling and choose a stole that complements your shoes, bouquet or headpiece. And why not finish off the look with a chic pair of gloves or a fur muff with floral embellishments!

Footwear

Finding a pair of shoes to match your gorgeous gown might be challenging, especially for autumn and winter weddings when temperatures are cooling down. We think high heel booties are a great solution for cold weather, and you can choose different fabrics such as leather, fur satin or lace. From faux fur trimmed ankle boots to shiny ballerinas and velvety strap shoes, winter footwear can definitely glam up your wedding outfit, and the key trends for 2015 include glitter, lace appliqués and laser cut leather.

We especially like open toe ankle booties which are great for the autumn months and elegant Edwardian velvety strap heels with metallic embellishments which can be worn with or without stockings. If you want to move away from trends and wear something a little different, you can even opt for bespoke bridal shoes hand-made to suit your own style. The choice of your bridal accessories will depend on the gown you have chosen to wear, so make sure to coordinate all the elements of your wedding outfit. We love the idea of wearing Victorian-style lace booties with a dramatic satin ball gown or retro dancing shoes with a flapper style frock!

Headpieces

A chic headpiece is definitely a very important bridal accessory as it can dramatically enhance your wedding outfit! Royal-style tiaras are very trendy this season and we think they look amazing with faux fur stoles. A sparkly crown will make you look like a snow queen in winter, and we like these stylish headpieces for autumn weddings as well.  Bohemian-style floral wreaths entangled into the hair are also a huge trend, and you can use artificial flowers, crystal-studded head bands with floral motifs, or even real blooms. Floral headpieces work well for countryside and winery weddings, but you can also give them a vintage touch with 1920s details like feathers and pearls combined with rose blossoms.
