Bridal knitwear

We’re into November, which means it’s now officially six months until I get married. Eek! Many jobs on the to-do list are done and we’re down to the little details, such as plans for the tables and what music we want.

I chose my dress back in May, and I’ve got all my accessories (any excuse to buy shoes!), but now I’m thinking about an evening cover-up. After all, there’s no guarantee of warmth at any time of the year in this country and it’s likely to get a bit chilly come sunset (if it doesn’t rain all day long, that is!).

I keep seeing really cool images on wedding blogs and Instagram of brides in knitwear.

Remember Olivia Palermo’s amazing wedding outfit? She wore three pieces by Carolina Herrera: a cashmere jumper, skirt and shorts. So chic.

And I love this wedding on Love My Dress


The bride wore a silk dress, chunky jumper and Manolos. Amazing!

Meanwhile Keira Knightly wore a Chanel jacket. OK, not quite knitwear, but it’s a wool jacket!


But for those of us not quite on a Chanel budget, here are a few things I’ve found…


Beaded cardigan, £28, Uttam Boutique


Wraparound cardigan, £108,


Short sleeve wrap cardigan, £6.40 (yes, really!), from Dorothy Perkins


Cashmere cardigan, £79.90, from Uniqlo


Cropped cashmere cardigan, £89.50, from Boden


Are any other brides out there considering a bit of knitwear for their big day?
