Unless you happen to be gettin’ hitched on a super warm day or in a tropical location, chances are you’ll catch a chill at night, especially if your dress is sleeveless or strapless. Whether knitted, beaded, tulle, fur or silk, we’re seeing wraps, capelets and shawls of all kinds make their way onto the wedding scene. And don’t worry, there’s a wrap suitable for every occasion — winter, spring, summer, fall, black tie, casual, beachy — you name it, it’s out there.
We suggest designating a guest (preferably no one in your wedding party) or family member (aunt, cousin, etc.) with the task of managing your “reception essentials.” Pack a bag with your party shoes, wrap, clutch and touch-up tools (lip stick, powder, bobby pins, comb, safety pins) and hand if off before the wedding. Ask your designated friend to lay the wrap over your reception chair, so it will be waiting when you need it.
