The bridal shawl, when chosen wisely can make your special day even better.

Shawls for weddings are a fantastic way to stylishly accessorise your look. In case of winter weddings or ceremonies taking places in cold buildings, they can also provide much-needed warmth.

What is a bridal shawl?

Bridal shawls are essentially large scarves. They are usually worn draped over the shoulders, but can also be styled in many other ways. All the intricacies of wearing a wedding shawl depend on what your bridal dress looks like. 

Some gowns are decorated with subtle and delicate needlework. Others tend to be very simple, with minimal ornamentations. Some gowns are pure white, while others incorporate off-white or accent colours in their designs. As such, matching a bridal shawl to it is very important. If your wedding dress is intricately decorated, a simpler shawl will help it stand out. Alternatively, a simple gown will benefit from a more decorative wedding shawl and catch even more eyes.

Of course, it doesn’t have to be your wedding. Whether you’re a guest or a bridesmaid, you can definitely add a bridal shawl to your wedding . A beautiful shawl would also make an absolutely fantastic gift. Below, we have listed our best scarves perfectly suited for the wedding.
