The wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion includes not only paint­ing in the reg­istry office, but also the sacra­ment of the wed­ding in the church. Many cou­ples pre­pare for this event not only spir­i­tu­al­ly, but also take into account all the impor­tant details of cloth­ing. So, an impor­tant part of the image of the bride is a wed­ding cape. This acces­so­ry not only gives a spe­cial charm to the bride, but also car­ries a cer­tain sym­bol of puri­ty and humil­i­ty.

Anoth­er advan­tage of this acces­so­ry is its ver­sa­til­i­ty. That is, after the wed­ding, it is not nec­es­sary to take off the cape, because in the cold sea­son it will warm you dur­ing a walk or a wed­ding pho­to shoot, and in hot weath­er it will cov­er your shoul­ders from the scorch­ing sun.

A clas­sic option can be a long cape like a rain­coat. Its length can be up to the waist or to the floor, at the request of the bride and depend­ing on the type of wed­ding dress. The best com­bi­na­tion would be a fit­ted sil­hou­ette and a long cape. The mate­r­i­al is also select­ed tak­ing into account the weath­er con­di­tions and the per­son­al pref­er­ences of the young. It can be del­i­cate and exquis­ite lace, fur, trans­par­ent chif­fon or tulle, com­ple­ment­ed by dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments.

A cape for a wed­ding with a hood would be very appro­pri­ate, since accord­ing to church laws, the bride’s head must be cov­ered. In addi­tion, such an acces­so­ry will give the image of the bride a cer­tain mys­tery and charm. How­ev­er, if a girl has dec­o­rat­ed her head with a mul­ti-lay­ered veil, then it can be used instead of a cape.

Also, a lux­u­ri­ous bolero can act as a cape. It has a fair­ly ver­sa­tile style, so it can be worn on almost any dress. For a wed­ding, lace or open­work is best suit­ed. In this case, the image of the bride will be light and weight­less.

For those who did not have time to get a spe­cial wed­ding cape, a shawl can be an excel­lent alter­na­tive. It is a large scarf that cov­ers both the head and shoul­ders. Best of all, it will look on a dress of a sim­ple style. Or it can be a tip­pet, which is more like a large scarf. They can cov­er the head and wrap around the neck.
