Bridal Capes

Next year is all set to be big on romance in weddings so a big trend for 2020 will be bridal capes. A cape, capelet or jacket can be the perfect accessory to create this look. Whether you want something little or something dramatic, there is sure to be one out there for you.

I love this capelet for so many reasons. The first is warmth. I’m a cold person and as we draw towards the end of the year, I start thinking of ways to keep warm. This capelet will keep you warm as you’re moving from venue to venue and during outside photos. The second is the faux-fur gives a soft outline for that romantic look.

Vianna by Charlie Brear is a full-length jacket in a new sequinned tassel fabric giving it a unique look. This is a bold choice and would work great with a simple statement dress or with the matching dress from Charlie Brear for the full look.

The new Jenny Packham SS20 collection includes this ivory and pearl tulle cape which packs one hell of a romantic punch. It’s dream-like, creating an outline with an impression rather than solid lines. And there is a matching dress to complete the look if this is the one for you.

Another example by Jenny Packham is this gorgeous full-length glitter tulle cape. This cape is the main feature of any look, so it’s best to pair it with a simple dress.

For drama over romance, this long chiffon cape is the one. It has a beaded neckline and is fastened at the back with a ribbon. It’ll give you warmth on the cooler days without compromising your overall look. The stunning staircase at Capesthorne Hall is the ideal setting to show off your incredible wedding dress as you descend for your civil ceremony.

For the boho bride, nothing beats Evelyn by Charlie Brear. Made from their exclusive Sine Catroux lace, it is also a great alternative to a veil giving you flowing lines as you walk down the aisle.

While technically not a cape, I couldn’t do a blog about shoulder coverage without including Neptune, a stunning coat from Ian Stuart. It’s modern and stylish, chic and rebellious. Perfect for dresses with a slinky silhouette. You’re guaranteed to turn heads in this.

I also couldn’t not include this. For the rebel or relaxed bride, this fun jean jacket provides warmth, sass and bags of personality. You could wear it as part of your full day or your second look if you’re having a change of clothes during the day.

Our next Wedding Fair at Capesthorne Hall takes place on Sunday 19th January 2020, why not put the date in your diary? – The Wedding Event
