When did wearing capes ever go out of style? Not only are they practical for warmth, they bring added drama to any outfit. Luckily for us, many bridal designers (and even some high-end retail stores) are bringing the fabulous trend back. Whether you are looking to add a touch of warmth to your winter wedding or next-level drama, caped wedding gowns are sure to fit the bill.
Caped wedding gowns can be the perfect cover for cold shoulders, and they can also eliminate the need for a veil, allowing you to let your hair down. Capes are also much more versatile than brides usually think. A cape can be any shape or size, and any fabric you want.
They’re also a wonderful option for brides who want a train during the wedding, but don’t want to drag one around the entire reception. Rather than splurge on a second dress, simply add a cape to your ensemble, and take it off when it’s time to dance. Capes can give the illusion of a larger dress without being too heavy, hide tattoos or freckles you don’t want in your wedding photos, the list goes on. Really, they can do everything. So if you’re ready to throw some added glam to your bridal ensemble, find a dress that has a cape or a drape, and get ready to shine in your bridal moment.
